Charlie Adam to Liverpool

Why should we care about this? Is there something to be read between the lines with this impending transfer? The Public Valuation Adam has been a player that Sir Alex has spoken highly of in the past. The manager isn't one to just throw out empty compliments. So, he must have seen enough in Adam [...

This shirt reminds me of...... Â I don't know about you but this shirt from the 2001/02 season always reminds me of Juan Sebastian Veron.

Red Rants at related • 0 views
After a simply remarkable first season that exceeded everyone's expectation, can our favorite Mexican build on the success in his second season? Maybe it's the pessimist in me, but I'm inclined to believe that we're going to be a bit disappointed. For a player to come to England and be exposed to the rigors and [.

It's been slightly over a month now since our dismantling at the hands of Barcelona. Yet, the pain has been eased (or blotted out depending on your preferred perspective) somewhat by our activity in the transfer market thus far. While most of our major rivals have yet to make a big money signing (Chelsea did get [.
