Liverpool FC have been linked with an astonishing 32 players in the January transfer window in just 14 days; with none of the players linked having signed for the club. We’ve compiled a list of the players that have been linked to a transfer with LFC so far, so you can see how much of a joke the rumour mill actually is.
Given that according to Premier League rules, only 25 players can be registered to play for the first team, to be linked with 32 players on top of our existing squad is just ridiculous.
The players we have been linked to so far are:
Shaun Wright Philips
Don’t be surprised to see that not a single one of these lines up under Kenny Dalglish to face Stoke on February 2nd at Anfield once the transfer window has “slammed” shut.
If for argument’s sake we did sign all of these, our spending would come to over £350million (if going off the figures given in the papers), something I’m sure John Henry and the rest of FSG would have a problem with, not to mention having to sell all of our first team squad.
Our players registered to play in the Premiership currently are: Jones, Johnson, Konchesky, Meireles, Agger, Aurelio, Gerrard, Torres, Cole, Jovanovic, Kyrgiakos, Maxi, Kuyt, Babel, Lucas, Carragher, Reina, Spearing, Poulsen, Darby and Skrtel. This means that we’d have to sell all of the above players, and sign 25 of the 32 above within the next two weeks…unrealistic isn’t it?
It just backs up the saying “If you throw enough mud at the wall, some of it will stick”
No doubt Liverpool will be ‘braced’ to receive a bid, or planning to ‘swoop’ for someone, or ‘tabling a bid’ for the next Zidane (or any other footballing transfer cliches you can think of)!
Anything to sell a newspaper I suppose.26 Comments
