Liverpool Message Board
i have been reading today that the transfer kitty that was promised to rafa is not there for him to spend and that the only transfer spends we will have this year is money raised by selling kewell,bellamy,cisse so say 30 million quid or so is this really enough to buy any success in next years epl or are we once again looking for a top four finish again so we can play in the champions league the following year or is this the americans way of telling us benetiz wont be around for much longer if so then we have been well and truly had
Not sure what to believe anymore..........one minute Rafa is not happy, then he has a meeting with the owners and is happy again, then goes on holiday and is REALLY happy that the new deals have been done with Stevie, Carra, Pepe and Xabi, now he's not getting the money the owners PROMISED him in the first place.........than again how much of this is newspaper spin??
What is to be believed is that Rafa will not be messed about, by players or owners or anyone else..........mess him about and he will go - then we will be right in the sh*t...!!

Personally I think its all rumors. Anyone out there sitting in on the discussions Rafa is actually having with the yanks?
Each story is different. I heard its about 30 mil from Champs league, new TV deal money which adds about another 10 mil, and then what ever he can raise from selling what we don't need. That could be another 15-20 depending on how much he wants to unload (Kewell, Bellars, Cisse, etc).
That's 50-60 mil. Maybe not E'to money, or even Tevez if the Italians really want to throw around the cash, but still not a bad kitty. So long as we don't give up Tevez to the Manc's
Personally got a feeling Rafa is keeping the facts close to his chest. If he can line up the right player (Tevez, David Villa, etc) there maybe money available. But why show everyone your wallet before you start haggling.
In Rafa (and hopefully the yanks) I still trust
again, most targets are in la liga, ONE MORE WEEK left to go.
anyone, please enlighten me:
1. have we sold any players?
2. have tevez/eto'o/torres/alves/malouda/huntelaar/silva... signed with any team?
3. who knows for certain how many millions are at benitez disposal right NOW?
We'll be the laughing stock of the EPL next season when Spurs finish above us and claim the 4th CL spot.
I've been wrong before and I just pray I'm wrong now.
G&H mark my words back Rafa or face the wrath of the KOP and you really don't want that.
Not sure J, I said a while back that the transfer budget would be around the 40mil mark, as was reported in the press, & it is starting to look like it maybe the case.
Dont think 30mil will be enough to stage a title challenge this time around, but it is a start.
ps) did you make it into work on time on Wedensday morning?
