David Villa : Rafa made a statement that Liverpool do not need David Villa because we got Andrei Voronin. I heard the statement, rubbed my eyes and chugged down a bottle of whisky. Rafa Que Pasa? Mucho Tequila Rafa?
Andrei Voronim : Hull have denied the rumour that they are chasing him.
Steve Finnan : The former Red & Istanbul hero might be returning to the Premiership. Portsmouth are interested in signing him from Espanol as a replace to Glen Johnson.
Xabi Alonso : Rafa was silent about Xabi who is expected to feature in tomorrow’s game. Speculation is that it might be his last game for Liverpool as a £32 million deal is already in place. Liverpool will use the money to purchase David Silva from Valencia. Rumours are that the deal also includes trading Arbeloa for Alvaro Negredo.
Andrea Dossena : The Times is reporting that Napoli are interested in repatriating him.
Diouf : Manure fans panicked when they heard that their team had signed a Senagalese striker called Diouf. Well unfortunately it is not El Hajj but Mame Biram Diouf who himself thought the offer from Manure was a joke. Pity they did not go after El Hajj, the Owen-Diouf partnership could have been legendary, he could even give Fergie lessons on how to spit gum.
