Just read on the BBC site that Torres is not in London, he's still in Liverpool. Liverpool have just denied they've accepted a bid for hm.

Anybody know where I can watch SSN online?



Just go to the skysportnews website and click on the transfer clock watch.

Do us all a favour and follow him to Chelsea then.

so because im incredibly unhappy that my favourite player is being sold to our rivals at a time when we cant replace him leaving us with just ngog for the only trophy we are able to win this season, i cant support liverpool?

im sorry but its very unlikely we will be able to spend the torres money today, so i dont see why we have to sell him today.

No it is not nice that your fanourite player may be sold.

But ONE person and ONE person only is to blame, and that is YOUR FAVOURITE PLAYER, he is the one who put us in this situation.

If Torres does leave and as you state "I cant support Liverpool" then follow him and we will gladly club together to get you a bicycle to head down the M6 and M1.

And lastly your having a go at NESV who stopped us from potentially going under and have just broken our transfer record.

You really need to get your priorities straight lad and support the CLUB and the CREST. :mad::mad:

Why is the deal being dragged out so much? He's on his way then he's not, what's going on?

Liverpool said they would sell for 50m APPARENTLY, and Cheslea were willing to pay that. So what's the hold up?

I really hope this has just been one big misunderstanding and Torres never wanted to leave :D

Torres: "I'd like two leaves"

classic misunderstanding, the lad only wanted a leaf or two

Torres is 27 now. He won nothing at Athletico and nothing at Liverpool, so I can accept that he now wants to move on and win things before the end of his career (and given his injury record, won't last more than 4 more years)

I think £50 million will be the most we will ever be able to command for him, not to mention removing his wages from the book, so it really is an astute piece of business.

He is world class and will probably score a shed load with the supply he'll get from Chelsea's midfield, but he won't get the adoration he had here.

He obviously sees medals as a measurement for success as opposed to support.

As others have remarked, no-one is bigger than this club.

Masch/Alonso/Torres cost £50 million and sold for £100 million- not bad spots by Rafa, no?

...£35 million for Carrol though? :FP:

Torres is a class act and deserves champions league football. Realistically I can't see us in the CL for at least another two seasons may be more if City keep spending. It hurts me to say but he deserves CL football and he wont get that with us. :(

Now this is good news, yes a little over priced but shows our owners finaly mean business and if torres says we arnt ambitious now hes fooling himself and he will regret it when we catch chelsea for the 4th place now that would be ironic, he leaves for champions league football and gets beat to it by the team he left. i bet u any money hes seriously concidering his decision now.

you can't have it both ways..we either trust Kenny and FSG or we end up in your position. Sure he's overpriced , but at 22 we have a good asset and soemone who can lead the line well. With a good chance of sell-on in a few years time. Meets the FSG criteria for buying.

ChrissyMR2
31-1-11, 16:18
This could be the biggest forward step weve taken since the last 5-6 years. they did say today there would be more transfers and if there wasnt they would be dissapointed, now all we need to here is youngs name being mentioned aswell. things are realy looking good at anfield for the 1st time in years. if torres gos i can safely say it woukld be the biggest mistake of his carear because chelsea are and aged team and are on the down slide and were finaly on the way up. About ****** time.

Imagine if he decided to stay and this whole saga gave him a kicj up the arse and we have torres suarez and carroll and who nos young. now that would be a team and forget bout finishing top six lets go for champions league and put chelsea out of top 4 and rub their noses in it.

HollisBrown
31-1-11, 16:18
I wouldn't mind Carroll here at all.

25m would be a fair price. BUT remember that we've inflated Torres' price from about 40 to 50m? due to the shortness of time remaining. So by inflating Carroll's by the same mark 25m to 35m just means we'd make the same margin anyway - and more importantly we can outbid other interested parties, and Newcastle will find it hard to turn down.

This is the business side of FSG coming out.

It's not the fact that he's leaving that hurts so much.

it's the fact that he has constantly said how much he loves us and the club plus the fact that, of all the clubs to leave for, it's Chelsea! A horrible, horrible club, with horrible fans (generally - some are ok), a horrible owner, arrogant players, a club with no soul or honour and a club that is only where it is because they have spent close to a billion pounds to achieve some level of success!

I wish people wouldnt turn on the owners and criticise them, at the end of the day the manager picks the players he wants and if the owners trust and bevieve in their manager they do what it takes to back him and this shows they trust kenny and i for one trust him too. their doing their best for us and if they want to spend that much on a player then its their decision and their money and we should be thankfull to them.

the latter is a natural part of escalation as a result of the action of the former.

Firstly,if Kenny believes Carroll worths 35m then we must accept it and just wait for the results. Period.
Besides Carroll is better and surely has more chances for development than Bent of 18m... Jesus guys only me seeing a pure talent here? 21 years old...

Paying 35 million for Andy Carroll shows NESV's intent its an awful lot of money for a player who's only played 40 odd games for Newcastle but his english and thus the price is hugh...SSN understands his on his way to the north west signaling that the green light for the transfer has been given.

I hope if thats the case we use the rest of the Torres sale to buy Ashley Young

I wish people wouldnt turn on the owners and criticise them, at the end of the day the manager picks the players he wants and if the owners trust and bevieve in their manager they do what it takes to back him and this shows they trust kenny and i for one trust him too. their doing their best for us and if they want to spend that much on a player then its their decision and their money and we should be thankfull to them.

I'm not turning on the owners, I am happy with their actions, the record breaking Suarez deal, the intention to not sell Torres (if it wasn't for his transfer request it wouldn't happen) and now they are willing to spend this much on a player so we are not left without a striker. The only thing I am questioning is "Why Carrol?" hes not worth that much, couldn't we get Benzema or Llorente for less? From what I heard, Llorente's buyout clause in less than 35m.

Look guys you can have it 2 ways: we either have the hicks and gillet regime where were crippled in debt and have to sell top players to buy mediocre players.

Whatever happens, it must be admitted that it's Torres' right to seek work elsewhere if he's dissatisfied. Equally, it's Liverpool's right to hold him to his contract if they so wish. As far as I'm concerned it boils down to the following:

1. Chelsea and Torres have pulled a fast one by leaving it so late.
2. Liverpool will struggle to replace Torres right now, though in the summer it's best for all parties that he should go.
3. Liverpool will get just as much money for Torres in the summer as now.
4. No player is bigger than the club, but in this instance that means NOT allowing Torres to go.
5. He can sulk if he wants. Liverpool will still pocket the money in the summer--and soon he will realise that he MUST play to the best of his ability to attain his own wants (this is what Liverpool should have realised in the Xabi Alonso saga).
6. FSG has expressed deep dissatisfaction with the way players in the PL appear to be able to just ignore contracts. Actually they can't. It's up to our owners to take a stand and show Torres--in this instance--that the club';s long term plans will not be disrupted due to the whims of one man.
7. It would be intolerable having Chelsea and the others crowing about the successful fast one that they pulled on the club: so don't let it happen!

Although we don't know what's going on behind the scenes I think it would be a fair assessment to say that there is possibly a stand off. LFC won't budge on price as if we sell we are lacking a quality srtiker for Europa. I do not believe we will simply sell Torres.

Now it seems we have bid for Carroll. And at a seemingly ridiculous price.

It is also unknown as to the Adam situation.

According to Opta, in the Premier League this season, Carroll has more goals than Torres (11 to nine), more assists (three to two) and the time lapse between goals is less (148 mins per goal compared to 211 mins per goal). The Newcastle striker's shooting accuracy is worse than Torres however, with 43% of his shots hitting the target compared to the Spaniard's 52%.

The reason for buying a player from england is because its to late to buy from abroad now and plus it was reported thismorning from spurs chase for strickers in spain if u meet a buyout clause u have to pay the vat on it. so if u payed 35m for Llorente u would have another 6.3m on top of that.

35m is way to much, from what I seen from Llorente or Benzema they would probably be cheaper, Real never really rated Benzema that highly and the 26m offer for Llorente was said to be almost as high as the buyout clause but it is tru that we would have to pay the vat. Although I do really like Carrol, I can't get my head around the price tag. But anyway, I trust that Kenny and the owners will do what they believe is the best for the club.

How the hell can that fat baffoon ashley turn it down, was only a year or so ago he was selling whole club for 100m and we offer 35 for one player. he is often in the casino he is just playing high stakes, To him this is just heaven, big time gambling.

If this was true - http://www.sportingo.com/football/a18118_torres-could-remain-liverpool-following-agent-miscommunication

I would definately forgive fornando and be over the moon.

It claims he planned on leaving because we were showing no intent of buying.

But then wanted to stay when we were gettin suarez.

But his agent handed in the request and Torres was furious about this.

TBH i really look at nando and believe what he has said in the past. In fairness if we were not goin to buy in this window you couldn blame him for wanting out.

I just hope this article has something in it

Just imagine how much better it would feel lifting the trophies in your beloved liverpool shirt nando. I dont think it would feel the same in any other shirt. LIVERPOOL is where you belong nando, were angry and say things we shouldn but you are always in our hearts. Prove me right and Make the commitment!!!

Ok, six hours to go, Torres still a Liverpool player, no potential replacements seem to have had bids accepted and no-one has a clue what is going on.

Although allegedly we have just signed a 17 year old on loan from Coventry. What the hell is up with that? Loan?

ShankPaisLish
31-1-11, 17:59
The way things are going, the Torres deal WILL NOT go ahead unless we get a replacement.

Thats what I am picking up on. And hence the hold up between us and the chavs and the confusion.

If newcastle have rejected the 35 mill bid then, stuff that one.

I like Carroll but not that *******g much. We could end up with a situation where Torres HAS to stay, which could be interesting.

I honestly hope that NESV stand firm if we cannot get a replacement.

Luke Traynor: Just got off the phone from very well-placed sources who tell me that Andy Carroll is around an hour and a half from Liverpool.
Currently travelling by car.
Deal for £35m appears to be agreed.

1644 DONE DEAL: It's a Liverpool signing, but not the one we are all waiting for. The Reds have signed 17-year-old midfielder Conor Thomas from Coventry on loan until the end of the season. He made his Sky Blues debut in Saturday's defeat by Birmingham City.

I really don't know what to think. On hand it could turn out to be a master stroke, on the other hand, it could be the biggest mistake we've made to date (oh no, hang on, 2nd biggest mistake as letting H&G take over was and always will be the biggest:D). I do have to say that the owners aren't afraid of taking chances. At least we seem to have money to spend and owners willing to spend it. Does this bode well for the future?

No we would not for 2 reasons:

1) The timing of Torres' transfer request. There isn't/wasn't enough time to agree to a fee for a foreign player and get them in for medicals/talks, hand in the papers etc before the deadline.
2) We would pay the buy-out clauses (35m for Llorente and 40m for Aguero), pay VAT on top of that and whatever other price the respective clubs would place on top. Those transfers would have been between 40m to 60m (each).

Have to agree with this statement, id rather torres stayed too, that would be unbelievable.
