The Wrong Kind Of Cold

Plenty of cold air, no fluffy white stuff :( Oh, well, never mind, I daresay we'll get some before too long. Fine Christmas all round, particularly a couple of pleasing football results for the Gunners and a nice Christmas surprise served up by Reading and Chelski.

Things are looking a little less rosy for Liverpool fans ATM, with news that the proposed takeover is nothing more than an attempt to make a short-term financial killing. Whether the news will make the Liverpool board have a rethink remains to be seen.

More later, my hands are too cold to type right now.

Do you ever write any full-length opinion articles on football?

Well there are some certainly some substantially longer posts in the archives of this blog - I've been a mite busy recently hence the brevity and infrequency of the posts of late. I guess it depends what you call "full-length", really...

Fuck the takeover mate. Liverpool will still play great and lose games like we always do.

Winners of the EC and FA Cup agauin this year? I reckon :)

The thing that concerns me about the takeover is that it would appear that it's just about the money that can be made out of the redevelopment of Anfield once the team's moved to a new stadium. For this to make financial sense they're hardly going to blow a load on the new stadium or the team, are they? I guess the only upside is that the team/new stadium will still need to fetch a decent price at the end of the day, but what qualifies as a decent price will depend on the real estate development at Anfield. Certainly they've already said they're not looking at investing in the team player-wise. All a bit worrying, particulary as it's an example that may well be repeated elsewhere.
