It's definitely not a good situation. He's willing to cash in on one of the greatest fan bases in all of sports, but he's not willing to give anything back. I hate it. I'm too young to have experienced the glory days of Liverpool. I want teams to fear Anfield again!

I'm too young as well. I was able to catch the 2006 season and thats when I fell in love with liverpool. The reason I chose LFC though was because of a pink floyd song on the album meddle, where they used a sound clip of YNWA and various chants in one of the songs. Then when I watched the team one time I heard them singing and was like no poo. It's just sad that you can buy a team and cash in on the fan base while running them into the ground and letting teams like swansea and Newcastle and those fugers everton surpass them in spending and quality.

Yea, it's really cool that Fearless uses a clip of the kop singing YNWA. I love Liverpool's history. It's truly amazing to read about/watch what Shankly did with such a terribly run organization. I think I, and most Reds, hoped BR could do much of the same. I'm not sure if he can.

David Villa can wind up at Arsenal on a loan... Should be interesting.

Not EPL related, but also heard PSG is interested in making £100million bid for Ronaldo.

Sturridge never made sense on chelsea, I'm interested to see what he can do with a team that actually needs him. Hopefully Rodgers plays him up top with Suarez and doesnt force him to play on the wing (since he more or less refuses to play like a winger even if you put him there).

12 million pounds for Sturridge could be a steal. Thats like a 1/3rd of what they paid for Carroll

Yes. I agree he could be a steal and at 12m its not a huge risk. I just hope we can find a way for him to fit in. Some possesion in the final 3rd would be nice but everything we get in there is direct and brief. They need to add some holding mids.

Sturridge is definitely a guy that needs the ball fed to him. He's a pretty selfish player and Chelsea never needed that. Liverpool needs a guy alongside Suarez who will take chances and stop making one too many passes. I still hope we can bolster our attack elsewhere, maybe a true CAM. We shall see.

Sturridge apparently wants to be guaranteed a central striker role and Rodgers is "prepared to make no such assurances" in that regard. For now, it seems the Sturridge move to Anfield has hit a roadblock.
