    I think that is bollocks. They would not have had the LFCtv interview done if there was still doubts about his knee.

    Sir Kenneth Mathieson Dalglish

    Some of the bosses I worked for were the most objectionable types. Ever. Kennys award has nothing to do with who else has got an honour or whatever. It is recognition for his and his wife Marinas charity and social work as much as it is for football. In fact I would say seeing as he finally got it at age 67 it is more about what he has done for his community and beyond rather than just football.

    And the bit about still having to take the bins out.

    The Man can do no wrong in my eyes after what he has done for this club. If he decides to accept any honour it gets my blessing.

    Other football - 2017/18 edition.

    I have said it since the PL was started. From the Football leagues perspective I do not see the benefit in none of their clubs winning their own competition. I think they should limit it to EFL and National League clubs if they want to invite them in. Being in the Champions League Final recently has nothing to do with it.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    They put Pickford on 90 grand a week when he was on about 18 grand at Sunderland. Good grief no wonder the lad signed.

    I think it is pretty obvious they would look very closely at his knee considering the money involved. it is not like the 2nd opinion was going to be a deal braker.

    The ‘Buy Nabil Fekir’ Campaign

    Get French Football have explained on social media that no announcement will happen until after 5pm and why. They tweeted: “French stock market regulations state that a listed company, like Groupe OL, cannot release "important" information when the market is open. That means any possible Nabil Fekir to Liverpool announcement will not occur before 17:00 English time, when the French stock market closes.”

    The ‘Buy Nabil Fekir’ Campaign

    Kevin Palmer June 8 2018 11:30 AM Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas has continued to deny his club are about to sell midfielder Nabil Fekir to Liverpool, but history suggests his statements over the last few weeks may be somewhat misleading. After Lyon's official Twitter account pushed out messages insisting reports of Fekir's imminent move to Liverpool was 'false information', those being told the fine details of the deal have been agreed were left a little confused. "Olympique Lyonnais categorically denies the false information disseminated by many media about the transfer of Nabil Faulkner to the Liverpool club," read the Lyon statement. "In this period of transfers where the slightest rumour is often presented as a reality, Olympique Lyonnais recalls that only the information disseminated by the club on its website is authentic." However, well sourced stories from reporters close to Liverpool suggest the £50m deal to bring Fekir to Anfield is close to being completed, yet Aulas has continued to reject suggestions that he is close to selling his latest big-name star to an English club. Yet this high-profile club president has a history of dismissing transfer rumours surrounding his players shortly before they make a move, with the deal that saw Arsenal sign striker Alexandre Lacazette last summer and prime example of Aulas spinning media narrative to suit his own club's agenda. "Olympique Lyonnais categorically deny having received an offer of €48million from Arsenal for the transfer of Alexandre Lacazette, as Le Progres report this morning. "The club is disappointed that Le Progres didn't go to the effort of contacting us before publishing this false information, which creates confusion on the day the club is publishing its annual figures. "The reality is that Arsenal made a €35million bid, which Olympique Lyonnais turned down for one reason: l'OL will keep Alexandre Lacazette, who is irreplaceable and who is one of the main leaders in Bruno Genesio's squad." A few days later, Lacazette was confirmed as an Arsenal player, with the stance from Lyon that he was 'irreplaceable' appearing to change dramatically and very swiftly. Aulas made similar statements of denials in the days before he sold Michael Essien to Chelsea back in 2005 and he has followed a similar line on several high profile-transfers in recent years, as he appears to revel in the spotlight of being in the centre of high-profile transfers. The end result looks certain to be Fekir moving to Liverpool, but Aulas is clearly keen to make sure he controls the timing of that announcement. https://www.independent.ie/sport/soccer/transfer-window/history-suggests-liverpool-fans-should-not-panic-over-lyons-denials-that-they-have-agreed-to-sell-nabil-fekir-36989621.html

    Just because twitterati mob say stuff does not mean a thing. People put far too much note on twitter which is basically like a load of washer women chatting rubbish over the garden fence.

    The ‘Buy Nabil Fekir’ Campaign

    Holy shit. Pardon me Holy Father. Liverpool are close to sealing a £53m deal for France forward Nabil Fekir. The 24-year-old Lyon captain has been one of Reds manager Jurgen Klopp's prime summer transfer targets and has his heart set on a move to Anfield. The clubs are yet to reach an agreement, but talks could conclude on Friday about a deal that may amount to 60m euros. France fly out to Russia for the World Cup after their final warm-up game against the United States on Saturday.

    Sergio Ramos

    Ramos better watch out. The Beast is after him. t's safe to say Sergio Ramos hasn't exactly endeared himself to those connected with Liverpool this past fortnight. The Real Madrid captain is seen as public enemy No 1 to many for his role in Mohamed Salah's night-ending injury during the Champions League final on May 26. This has been exasperated further following claims that Loris Karius suffered concussion during the Kiev showpiece after a collision with Ramos too - something the latter has denied with sarcastic undertones. +8 Adebayo Akinfenwa took to Twitter on Wednesday to send a video warning Sergio Ramos +8 The Wycombe Wanderers striker is unhappy with Ramos' comments towards Liverpool players +8 Liverpool fan Akinfenwa told Ramos in the video that he's lucky that'll never face each other The 36-year-old crunches up a football boot to show the Spaniard what he would do it him And it is those undertones that have resulted in Wycombe Wanderers striker Adebayo Akinfenwa to send a light-hearted warning to the Spaniard. Akinfenwa, who is a Liverpool fan, took to Twitter on Wednesday to make his feelings known. 'Don't worry Liverpool FC I will always have your back. #YNWA #WeInThisTogether #SometimesYouHave2Smile #BeastMode,' he tweeted alongside a video.

    As a squad player I think it would be a good signing. How can people not want the squad strengthening.
