Reports are out today that QPR are chasing forgotten Liverpool defender Philipp Degen. Degen can
play on either the right or the left side of defense and will provide QPR manager Neil Warnock with
much needed cover. A fee of Â£1mill has been mentioned.
In all fairness I think we'd be happy just to get him off the wage list, as he's never gonna
make the first team this season with our depth at right back.
Queens Park Rangers are believed to be interested in taking out-of-favour Liverpool full-back
Philipp Degen to Loftus Road. The newly-promoted Premier League side suffered a 4-0 home defeat at
the hands of Bolton Wanderers on Saturday and consequently are looking to bolster their back
You thought you could escape the summer transfer window when Premier League football returned?
Well, you thought wrong. And on top of the expected rumours linking Liverpool to various English
defenders, there's a whole new round of rumours that just don't seem to make sense any way you come
at them to dig through as we rush towards September first and begin to scrape the bottom of the
Following on from my take on the situation at Liverpool yesterday an ex-coach has voiced his verdit
on what's happened there and let's just say he hasn't held back. Jacques Crevoisier who worked
under Gerard Houllier for two seasons has spoken out and his comments are published in The SUN this
Forget the four points dropped in the last two league games, or ending the run of three games
without a win. For Manchester United fans the game against Liverpool on Sunday is about getting
revenge for the embarrassing 4-1 loss against their most hated rivals at Old Trafford eighteen
If you follow me on Twitter (I'm sorry, I don't mean to plug it at every opportunity, it's just a
medium I've increasingly used), you know I'm prone to infrequently reference indie rock music. Even
if it seems to alienate people. Well, I've had The Hold Steady's song "Constructive Summer" in my
head for some time now.
Next into the Dragon's Den are Tom and George and they're looking for Â£800million for a 100 per
cent stake in Liverpool Football Club.
It was the best club in the world but is laden with debt and now can boast only to be the seventh
best in England.
The Europa League beckons, the famous Anfield home is earmarked for demolition and Mascherano wants
Degen Only Managed Seven League Appearances At Liverpool In Two Years.
Liverpool's Philipp Degen has been deemed surplus to requirements at Anfield and has sealed a
season-long loan move to Stuttgart in the Bundesliga. Degen, aged 27, certainly has a lot to do to
reignite his career.
Stuttgart are allegedly interested in signing Liverpool defender Philipp Degen.
The Swabians were keen on signing the 27-year old defender in January, but never made an official
offer. However, following the sale of Sami Khedira to Real Madrid, Stuttgart will be looking to
reinforce their squad, and should have sufficient funds to do so.
Rafa Benitez undoubtedly signed some brilliant players during his time at Anfield, and the club is
still benefiting from some of the players he signed. However, it's also true to say that Benitez
wasted a lots of money on players who just weren't good enough for Liverpool. It's taken a long
time to rid the club of these highly paid players, but with the departure of Philipp Degen today,
the club is no longer lumbered with Benitez's deadwood.
Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) want manager Kenny Dalglish to sell members of his squad
before they will allow him to spend the cash again.
The Reds have already embarked in a Â£40million recruitment drive this summer, resulting in Stewart
Downing, Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Alexander Doni being signed.
Kenny Dalglish has refused to rule out the possibility of Alberto Aquilani playing a part in
The 26-year-old has been out on loan at Juventus this season having failed to impress since he was
signed in the summer of 2009 for Â£17million.
However, Dalglish is a known admirer of the talented playmaker and it now seems more than likely he
will return to Anfield for the new season.
Compare and contrast. While Joe Cole spent the first 48 hours of his Liverpool career beaming from
ear-to-ear, Albert Riera could be spotted brooding in the background.
Spending time at close quarters with the Liverpool squad that travelled to Switzerland this week
presented an opportunity to decipher the dynamics of the group and watch their interaction with new
boss Roy Hodgson.
Skysports.com understands Queens Park Rangers have made an enquiry regarding Liverpool outcast
The Switzerland international appears to be surplus to requirements at Anfield after struggling to
make an impression during his time at Liverpool.
He was beset by injury troubles in his first season at the club after arriving from Borussia
Dortmund in 2008 and spent last season back on loan in the Bundesliga with Stuttgart.
Liverpool has made a surprise move for the Aston Villa full-back Luke Young. Roy Hodgson, the
Liverpool manager, tried to sign Young earlier this year when he was in charge of Fulham and he has
now rekindled his interest in the former England international. Liverpool has agreed a Â£2.5m fee
for a player who has been told he is surplus to requirements at Villa Park.
Pepe Reina could play his 150th consecutive Barclays Premier League game for Liverpool at Fulham on
Should he achieve the feat, it will be seventh longest sequence by any player in Reds history.
The last match Reina missed was the club's final Premier League game before the 2007 Champions
League final at home to Charlton.

Sorry, Philipp Degen. But while we appreciate the effort, that's just silly, isn't it? You could
catch a cold.
While we are treating the snow with the respect it deserves (making fashion forward, Chanel clad
snowmen and necking mulled wine by the gallon) it seems that baller boys remain impervious to the
perils of the wintry weather.
BERNE, Switzerland BSC Young Boys followed VfB Stuttgart into the UEFA Europa League knockout
rounds after conjuring three goals in five minutes at the end of a gripping Group H match in wintry
Berne. With Stuttgart having recovered from David Degen's first-half opener to lead with strikes
from Pavel Pogrebnyak and Sven Schipplock, Vladimir [.
Reports are surfacing that Rafa Benitez might be interested in signing Daniel Agger. Whether the
reports in Italy are accurate is not the issue - I want to focus on a wider issue; something that
directly impacts on LFC's success, and that is the previous habit under Rafa Benitez of acquiring
injured players and/or players with serious injury histories.
