A slow Friday for news on the mighty reds but we have made a signing.
Unfortunately he is only 14…
Liverpool have signed Ben Robinson, aged 14, a hot prospect in the goalkeeping department from nearby Stockport County. The team from down the road however are crying foul, claiming that Liverpool have made an illegal manouevre.
“We have been up front, forthright and professional in all of our dealings with Liverpool, and all the players concerned, but unfortunately this has not been reciprocated.”
Don’t worry Stockport – as soon as he gets decent and threatens to start playing for England I am sure Liverpool will loan him back to you, we do that with our English keepers.
Reds not Bent
After Darren Bent turning down West Ham’s £75,000 a week, all eyes turned back on to Liverpool in the race for the £17 million rated (!?) Charlton striker. However, the press have turned all their focus on Spurs who are set to land Bent. Liverpool’s interest all along has been questioned in our forums and Spurs will probably have to break their wage structure to land Darren.
Fat Frank relishes..
Not pies for a change – but our early Premiership clash against Chelsea at Anfield. Lampard reckons the start of the season is just about the right time to play Liverpool. Frank, who captained Chelsea to two defeats at Anfield last season said:
“The two fixtures that really stand out in the first few weeks are the ones at Liverpool and United.”“Liverpool have had a habit of gaining momentum later in the season this past couple of years so. Maybe playing them in the third match could be a good time,” he said before disappearing in to a local bakery.Stevie set to tackle AlexOur Captain gets married to the apple of his eye, Alex Curran, in their wedding which will be held down in Berkshire.

Fernando Torres career at Atletico Madrid could be decided by the final games of La Liga this weekend. Atletico are struggling to even qualify for the UEFA Cup and failure to do this could result in the player leaving Spain. A transfer fee of around £20 million + would be expected. Expect a bid from West Ham, and probably not us.
And the dirty gossip….
Marseille, currently involved in talks with Liverpool about a further deal for Djibril Cisse, are believed to be interested in taking Sami Hyypia off our hands. The player is hoping to stay on Merseyside, but nobody from the club has given a firm commitment to Sami’s Anfield future. I’m sure most of us want Sami to stay – at least for another season.
