Liverpool’s €15m transfer conundrum & Reds braced for Juve bid – Best of LFC

Liverpool FC: Shankly GatesWell according to Wigan chairman Dave Whelan he’ll waving goodbye to boss Roberto Martinez in the very near future. Supposedly he is the man Fenway Sports Group want to replace Kenny Dalglish in the Liverpool dugout. Hands up Kopites if he was your first choice? From Andre Villas-Boas to Brendan Rodgers to Fabio Capello to Rafa Benitez the Latic’s boss has been handpicked by owner John W. Henry and chairman Tom Werner to fill the shoes of Dalglish following his dismissal last week. The objective for Martinez is to restore the Reds back to the top-four and bring Champions League football back to Anfield. It will be a tall order for a manager who’s best finish in three seasons at the DW Stadium is 15th. The 41-year-old’s preference for fluid, passing football is attractive on the eye and what he achieved on a meagre budget at Wigan has won him many admirers. With substantially more funds at Liverpool he will have the opportunity to purchase a higher quality of player that will suit his favoured system. More importantly though FSG will need to give him time to implement his ideals and mould the team to his specifications…should he be appointed of course!

This week on FFC will a Dutch legend be taking a job upstairs at Anfield and will the past treatment of previous managers come back to haunt FSG as they search for a new number one?

Quote of the Week


“They have made Roberto an offer and Roberto has agreed to consider it. He’s asked what his responsibilities are because they are American owners and the rules and regulations they set down are a little bit different to what we English set down for football.

“Roberto is a seven-days-a-week, 12-hours-a-day worker. I don’t think they realise how hard he works. I know he won’t move anywhere unless he’s fully in charge.” Wigan chairman Dave Whelan gives Liverpool fans an indication of what to expect should Roberto Martinez be appointed manager.
