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.

I'm not bothered to be honest lads if we get a mention or not. Firstly I think they are right to rule us out as we don't have the quality to push for fourth. As for Santa well it's easy to read through these has no quotes!!! Utter crap, and as for the original article lol lol. Only kidding Bom. Good read mate.

Hey Muffy, thanks for being the sensible Red fan! I think with all the talent available to you, there shouldnt even be a debate about us finishing above you yet the fact remains that we are. blame whatever you like but we will push all the way. and regards to consistency, wed won 3 on the bounce before the villa and Everton draws so 11 points out of 15 since the new year, thats not half bad!!! With regard to MOTD, im still surprised ppl are shocked to hear that rovers arent mentioned or are mentioned in a negative manner, its been that way since we were relegated back in 99, aint gonna change now!

not surprised merely confused as to how they can get away with it surely there is somewhere in their remit to be impartial?

Thankyou my children.
To pick up on an earlier comment, from Bom I think, I don't think that The Grinch will be there next season anyway, so it doesn't really matter does it?!?!

As Velvet Revolver sing....."This fight will be the last fight..." Rafa will be replaced in the summer, especially if this DIC (appropriate acronym for a liverpool consortium, dont you feel?) buy out Hicks and/or Gillett
