Liverpool Message Board
Apparently that's the message. I really like this guy as a back-up striker. I know we've got Carroll to come back, but I just think we are going to do a Pontius Pilate and wash our hands of him in the summer. He's quick, powerful mobile and scores goals. We've got a fun summer coming up boys! Lets hope Jason's right and we've got a few quid to spend on the minimum four players we need, and we might have Xabi back too!

Not completely out of th question Colin /Loki.. and to be honest, while he's not a midfiel monster, or destroyer like his partner Mascherano was, he is a very effective holding midfielder.
I'm not ready to start wracking my brain with all the summer news and transfers (nor take the abuse despite getting a few inside scoops correct), but this one has decent legs. Xabi has still turned down the offer to negotiate his new contract, and if Fail Madrid, Fails to win the CL, I think he'd be open to considering the move, especially since I had read in Spanish, he would be willing to do so at some point, even if it meant taking a significant pay decrease to come home. Problem will be the excessive price tag Madrid would slap on him.. For as great as he is, getting on in age, it would be hard to justify 15-20M on him, when we are serious players in that realm for Christian Eriksen, who is a world class talent, and more than ready/experienced at only 21.
If Xabi handed in a request, which I just don't see him doing, we could have a better shot.
I agree with you on Carroll, I just don't see BR and AC being on the same page. Although got to give the lad credit for an excellent goal this past weekend.
On Sow I'm not sure, and will have to ask my Turkish friends what they make of him as I don’t know much about the lad. But, on first look I'm not sure. While Fennerbache is a club who can compete with many top clubs in Europe, the Turkish league as a whole is very week, so I'd take any stats he's built up in domestic play with a pinch of salt.
I also question players who do go to Turkey to play, especially while still in their prime. The elite Turkish clubs can offer European football, and top salaries, but it’s usually where players end up for their last big contract, rather than when they are in their prime.
