Rafa Wants To Steal Christmas!!!!

Rafa Wants To Steal Christmas!!!!

The Tabloid Fabrication Express has left the station once again, now that the transfer window has closed until the summer.

The latest 'story' to emerge was that of Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez who apparently is desperate to sign Roque Santa Cruz at the end of the season and pair him with his superstar striker Fernando Torres in a dream partnership.

The fee in question you ask? £7 Million!

Firstly, Get real eh lads? IF Santa Cruz was to leave, which I personally don't think he will, It would be for a price in excess of £10 million as Rovers' hand would have to be forced as there is no pressure to sell.

Secondly, Rovers have the opportunity of finishing ABOVE Liverpool this season!

Thirdly and finally, I am not convinced that Benitez will be at Liverpool to sign anyone come the summer, but that's a debate for the scousers to have.

even tho it would a great signing for us, i agree with you i cant see MH letting him leave anyway but he would cost about 10m (worth every penny i think) but we will finish above you, yes have been having bad spell but you lot are so inconsistant just like us but we win and draw more than we lose.
