    Scepticism is the very least this rumour should be treated with. Downright disbelief is probable the best option. Because elrojo sounds so plausible and sincere that belief is tantalising. The come down would be a blow to my attempts to be rational and objective about this amazing club.

    Scepticism is a win win win stance to take.

    Win 1: If it doesn't happen, we can all say "I told you so"

    Win 2: If it doesn't happen we'll have avoided the gloom that follows the tearing of our exultant expectations to shreds

    Win 3: If it happens...

    I can't believe that Moores would give up his vote on the board without good reason, especially as his friend and ally Rick Parry is also leaving - which could indicate that either H&G have successfully renegotiated the loan and are set to stay on ad infinitum and he can't face the boardroom divisions on his own - but, in that case, why not cut the apron strings altogether, rather than staying on as honorary life president?

    Alternatively, he is going because he is aware of an imminent takeover and the incoming new owners want a clean sweep of the board, but are happy for him to stay on as life president. Intriguing.

    As he is staying on in some capacity, we are unlikely to hear any revelations from him, so my guess is that big changes are afoot

    Ahem. I reckon if the MPs' action of influencing the Government to stop RBS from refinancing the loan succeeds, then a sale would have to be the only way out for the Americans. For the good of the club, I hope so.

    Hope the OP is right, but i've seen far too many false dawns over the years to get my hopes up.

    When the new owners are standing there, scarves round them, just outisde the tunnel by the pitch, telling the press how they've always loved us, then i'll pop the champagne.

    I believe that elroja is telling the absolute truth about what he has been told - whether the information he was given is correct is another matter completely. So thanks elroja for sticking your neck out like this, lets all hope that your inside man really is telling the truth.

    hmmm, tough isn't it, elrojo is 100% telling the truth imo as he's been here a while and i think i can safely say he wouldn't b/s, which means is his source telling the truth?..with elrojo vouching for him i'd say yes....but then there's still that obvious apprehension because it's such big news.

    i'm between Iraq and a hard place on this

Hold my hands up if I am wrong as I am not a sensationalist but this guy is on the inside and has never lied to me before.

    Ok, I hear you! But why are we about to spend 18mil on a full back and why has Rafa said we have money to spend big? Trust me, I was sceptical and grilled my source but he is adament. He has worked at Anfield for several years.
    If this is true then thats fantastic news, but like so many others on here I cant get excited by this untill I see new owners standing on the pitch with Rafa holding up liverpool shirts and then do a press conference afterwards.

    I hope you are right and I hope your mole isnt spinning you a yarn.

    we'll have to wait and see.

    P.S if its true you'll make yourself an instant legend

    i didn't, with the person you're referring to, i challenged his style and info to the point that what he was saying was really just his opinion and therefore didn't make a difference if he was who he said he was. Also who he claimed to be didn't strike me as someone who'd have much inside info, but I could appreciate his reporting of what was going on in Spanish circles. He agreed that his op was speculation so it was as important to define him as it was any other Tom **** and Harry who reports media speculation.

    DIC are at Ascot this week and have brought a full entourage with them, I know they like horses so the rumours about them buying MIGHT be false and they might just be here for the races, but you never know....
