That's the kind of junk-shaking that Liverpool need if they're going to win the league! I don't care how much he's gonna cost, talent like that is priceless.

Mike Georger said...

So Liverpool launched their new away kit (gorgeous btw, look for my fat ass to be rocking it in Baltimore). They made some TV ads and they focus on Alonso, as do the internet ads. I really hope that's a good sign.

Keith said...

Georger, the Web ads for Villa's away kit this year featured Marlon Harewood and Martin Laursen. So if you want Alonso to either a) not play, and be eventually loaned out to the Championship winners (and not score during that loan spell) or b) have a great season and suffer a potentially career-ending knee injury midway through, then, yes, it's a good sign.

Keith said...

And I agree- the new Liverpool change kit is a gigantic improvement over this year's.

Ronaldo isn't gay. He's European.

EbullientFatalist said...

And so is D. Silva really going to Liverpool? It'd be nice for 'Pool if he went, but Rafa would probably fuck it up by not playing him, Gerrard, or Torres at the same time.

Lingering Bursitis said...


it's not that Rafa wouldn't play them together, it's more that they'd all be injured at different times and therefore couldn't play together.

Oh, and watch this space for the Great Valencia Pillage of 2009. Rafa's old friends there will surely do the biz. Gimme Silva and Albiol k thx
