Transfer Talk

Liverpool eyeing up more English talent

Trading in gossip and rumour is fun, kids

James Milner

An international tournament is very nearly upon us which can only mean one thing: it’s time for Cristiano Ronaldo to piss off England. At the 2006 World Cup, the C-Ron Likeability-ometer took a Big Brother villain-esque plunge following his winking tactics, and after his recent disloyal comments and impending departure, the tricky winger’s popularity will experience a similar fall. Despite the inflated importance of the C-Ron debate, the rumour mills have been turning elsewhere…

James Milner to Liverpool
Really? Until recently it didn’t look like Rafa Benitez had even heard of English players let alone ones nowhere near getting into the national team.

The Spoiler Truth-o-meter: We can just about believe Barry, but not Milner

Frank Rijkaard or Roberto Mancini to Chelsea
The Blues have decided that it might be a good idea to interview the only two guys that haven’t said no to the Chelsea job before they decide Blackburn might be a better option.

The Spoiler Truth-o-meter: Definitely two of the frontrunners. Maybe.

Joe Lewis to Everton
It’s amazing what being part of the England squad can do to your valuation. Apparently Peterborough’s goalkeeper wasn’t just brought along for a laugh and is actually worth three million.

The Spoiler Truth-o-meter: Have Everton even got three million?

Eidur Gudjohnsen to Newcastle or West Ham
Another transfer window opens and again Barcelona tell Gudjohnsen he’s free to leave. Maybe one day he’ll take the hint.

The Spoiler Truth-o-meter: Next…

Stephen Hunt to Everton
Look away now Sunderland fans…there’s an Irish international that you might miss out on! After losing Lee Carsley, Everton need to fill their Irish quota.

The Spoiler Truth-o-meter: Not entirely convinced

    Actually the ‘winking’ tactics you all like to reminisce about were in the World Cup in 2006, not in 2004.

    Typical bitter Blue comment mate. Seeing the fingerprints of us Reds where they don’t exist. Do you check under your bed at night too for fear of a Kopite waiting with an axe? Ha, pathetic!
    It’s a common held belief that Everton don’t spend much money, despite Bill “Half A Sixpence” Kenwright talking a good game.
    Yes we’re skint thanks to the Americans, but you lot and your stay away fans aren’t exactly rolling in dosh either.

    As to the transfer rumours, why would we sign another Pennant, which is all Milner is. Either buy big or don’t buy at all.
    We don’t need squad players, we have talented trophy-winning youth to pad that out. Just give us another Torres, Rafa. Blow your budget on one of two genuine class players.
