Good news for Liverpool, and some bad news too…
A slightly happier Phil Thompson
It must be frustrating, enduring such an up-and-downy time on Merseyside, and today’s news stories have been typical of Liverpool’s season, as one hand gently strokes your face whilst the other delivers an almighty blow to the solar plexus.
As reported in today’s Daily Mail, Javier Mascherano has finally put paid to any links with Barcelona by saying this:
“The club are talking with my agents.”
“I don’t like to be involved in the contract meetings so I leave that to my agents and the people at the club.”
“Liverpool know I want to stay. I don’t think it will be difficult to arrive at a deal and we will see what happens in the next few weeks.”
Whilst, the blow to the stomach comes courtesy of the Liverpool legend Phil Thompson, who suggests that some kind of ransom is in order to get things back on track.
“Fernando Torres said he didn’t want to be fighting for fourth place every year and he is absolutely bang on.”
“He’s a player, a foreign player, who has come to the club. They have to listen to him.”
“He and Stevie Gerrard should be saying “if you’re not going to invest, why would we want to remain here?” They need to give them (Tom Hicks and George Gillett) some ultimatums.”
Does Phil have a point? Let us know with a comment.
