Very lucky to get a point last night, poor attacking performance from Mascherano and stevie G, as for pennant a waste of space, needs a shave and a hair cut, just does'nt do it for me at all.

But a point away from home is a good result especially after the below par display

I just find the whole thing amazing.  I know Moore would have edited the programme to suit his own agenda, but i mean if what he says are facts ie. bin ladens family on planes immediately after 9/11, the connections with Bush snr, baker & rumsfiled, the amount of money the saudi's have invested in America, Bush jnr's puppets that he then put in postions of power, the WMD question (which were never found) it's almost laughable but yet bush jnr is still commander and chief of the worlds most powerfull army

Was aware of the 'selective editing' but are the points he raised about the whole bin laden and bush connections correct

I have no doubt that this documentary has been on this board before and if that is the case i apologise for covering old ground.

Anyway after watching it last night on Ch4 for the 1st time, i was wondering if everything that Michael Moore included about bush was accurate and if so, i can't believe that he got in for a second term.

Have to say, personally i don't like the chap, a bit of a wild west thing about him, he would not look out of place at the oil baron's ball.

Don't know much about Torres but based on that info he has a knack of scoring goals at every level, which surley has to be a good sign, but 1 decent signing won't turn us into a title challanging team, lets hope a few more will follow before the start of the season, i suspect bellamy will get the road now.

Garcia gone for £4 mil.

Annoying as hell sometimes, but he scored some cracking goals.

Does anyone know what is happening with Gondzales, i thought he was away after the CL final to real betis, but i think he is still a liverpool player at the minute.

Torres to sign tomorrow if he passes medical today

The Mali international had been linked with a summer move away from Liverpool but the player himself has denied he ever considered leaving Anfield.
After putting pen to paper on a contract that will keep him at the club until at least 2011 Sissoko told "It was never in my thoughts to leave Liverpool.
"I read about the speculation linking me with other clubs but I am already at a big big club and it's an honour for me to be able to call myself a Liverpool player.
"I feel fresh and can't wait for the new season to start. I am injury-free and although I know I'll face a battle for a place in the team as we have so many great midfielders I'm prepared to fight for a position.
"It obviously gave me a huge boost to my confidence that the manager believes in me and wanted me to stay at the club. Now I want to repay him on the pitch."

Looks like rafa is slowly gettin what he wants from the yanks, - main players committing themselves long term, a better youth policy, and we hope a couple of big signings

Liverpool have completed the capture of Athletic Bilbao defender Mikel San Jose.

The 18-year-old central defender becomes Liverpool's second signing of what has been a quiet pre-season, after the two clubs struck an accord over a €400,000 (£270,000) fee.

San Jose is highly thought of at the Basque outfit and was expected to progress to the club's second team next season, after a series of mature displays in junior sides.

Bilbao concede they were loath to let a player of promise leave, but have wished him well as he sets about a fresh challenge on Merseyside.

"For us it is bad news, but Mikel has decided on the choice of Liverpool and it was impossible for us to fight against a European giant," read a club statement.

San Jose is now looking forward to the opportunity to link-up with his compatriot Rafa Benitez (pictured) at Liverpool.

"It was a surprise for me but I have decided to accept the chance at Liverpool," said San Jose.

"I am very excited but now I know that I have to work more each day to get in the first team."

liverpool never do there business through the papers, so i would'nt panic just yet, the hype at the minute has been partly caused by the media.

The pool are at the same level they were 3/4 years ago with Houllier. He bought hastley and look what we ended up with.  So lets give rafa a bit of time and space to get the players of real quality the we need to get us a team capable of mounting a title charge next year

LIVERPOOL’S hopes of securing a transfer fee for Djibril Cisse received a boost after the player’s agent confirmed Bolton Wanderers have entered the race to sign the striker.

Cisse – a £14million capture from Auxerre in 2004 – is still eager to make his loan move at Marseilles permanent, with the French side having secured Champions League football for next term.

However, the flamboyant forward’s chances of extending his stay at the club he supported as a boy looked to have diminished with the Ligue One outfit’s reluctance to meet the pre-arranged £8m asking price.

Liverpool have told Marseilles, who received £17.5m from Bayern Munich for winger Franck Ribery, they will only accept a permanent deal for Cisse, and will not countenance a further loan.

With the two clubs unable to reach an agreement, it has opened the door for Bolton manager Sammy Lee to pounce.

“It is true that there has been some contact with Bolton,” said Cisse’s representative Ranko Stojic.

“I have met up with Sammy Lee on one occasion. He impressed me, not just as a coach, but as a person.”

Stojic added: “He is a fantastic man. We are meeting Liverpool next week to find out what they want to do.”

Bolton are also believed to favour an arrangement similar to the one which took El Hadji Diouf to the Reebok, but Benitez will now be hopeful that Bolton’s interest will force the French club’s hand, as he looks to bolster his summer war chest.

Marseilles remain confident of negotiating a reduced fee for the France international over the course of the next week.

“About Djibril Cisse, the negotiations should be finished early next week,” said their club president Pape Diouf

“We would prefer a loan but Liverpool want a definitive transfer.

“We are in talks about a transfer fee inferior to 12million euros (£8m). I have a lot of hope.”

One player Benitez looks certain to resist the temptation to cash in on, however, is keeper Scott Carson – the subject of a £3.5m bid from Aston Villa on Thursday.

The Spaniard yesterday moved to assure the England Under 21 international, who enjoyed a spell on loan at relegated Charlton, that he still has a future at Anfield.

And Benitez has now challenged the former Leeds man to fight for a first-team place with Pepe Reina.

“I was speaking to Scott recently and I told him he will be part of our first team squad next season,” Benitez said.

“He must fight with Pepe Reina now for a starting place. We knew when we fought off Chelsea to sign him he was a talented goalkeeper.

“He got some good experience last season and now he is coming back to us.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool have confirmed two further pre-season friendlies against Wrexham and Crewe Alexandra.

Benitez’s men will travel to Wrexham's Racecourse Ground on July 7 before facing Crewe at Gresty Road on July 14. Both games kick-off at 3pm.

Lads, ask yourself this question would pennant , crouch or aurello make the Utd or chelski teams, not a hope in hell.

Plain and simply we need a better quality players.

IMO that these 3 are not, maybe ok for mid table teams, but not for title contenders

Rafa seems to be gettin his way buy improving the young players at the club, but he would still need to buy a couple of big hitters if the pool are to contest the league.

IMO the following need to be shown the door

J dudek - past his best
H Kewell - never done it for the pool
Gonzalez - i think he is already gone
Aurello - not good enough
Crouch - same as above
Pennat - sane as above
Bellamy - same as above
Zenden - would'nt get on Linfiled
Le Tellac - same as above
Cisse - nut case- anger issues
Pongolle - disaster
