    Maxi Rodriguez set to return home

    it would seem that Maxi's long time flirtation with a return to Newells Old Boys is about to be sealed. The club chairman has announced they have agreed terms with Maxi and are in discussions with LFC to negotiate a release from the final year of his contract. Bit saddened by this one although it does make perfect sense with him being 31 yrs old and his playing time of late not really leveling off against his £110k per week wages.

    Im certain if he had been given a run in the team throughout a whole season he would have hit 15+ goals, no problems, but at what expense? His work rate and tracking back seemed to be the stumbling point despite his astounding effectiveness. When we briefly played a front 4 of Maxi-Suarez-Kuyt-Bellamy we played some scintilating football but conceded the possesion monopoly.

    I will save my thanks until its confirmed but great goals and even greater song!
