    The next addition..?

    In response to Hobs comment on Sneijder above I heard some news on this last night and thought it would be worth sharing. As it's transfer gossip I shall have to try and write this in the style of Jason.

    Colleagues I have some interesting news on the Sneijder front. Take what you will from it as it is the view of one person quoted from a radio programme last night. I personally suspect his person, being a Dutch journo / correspondent may have some link to Sneijder as it sounded like someone is fishing for work. In short, or not as the case may be, the Sneijder, Gallatasaray thing is not done. I gathered all of this info from the said radio programme on my way home last night. They, Gallatasaray, who seem to have oodles of money, (is oodles a word? I don't know but it works here) have offered him something like 160,000 Euro, or was it Pounds? Anyway it was tax free with the simple purpose of getting him there. Crazy sums but according to the said journo Sneijder himself isn't overly fussed about the prospect of Turkey.

    Normally I suspect Jason would write some more here so I'll fill in with my own stuff. Blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah balh , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah balh , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah balh , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah balh , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah, blah, blah blah , blah.

    Back to story.
    Said journo said that Sneijder was interested in the PL.
    For some reason which remained unexplained, and I personally still cant fathom why the so called big guns of City, United, Tottenham, Arsenal were not in the game. As said I've no idea why. Sneijder wants a PL move to a senior PL side and is willing to take a significant pay cut by all accounts. Sneijder has his eyes on Brazil and wants to play regularly and impress thus ensuring that he'll go.

    However there is a significant downside. He's injured and hadn't played since last year. I don't know what the injury is but it's obviously something serious for a lay off approaching 4 months so far, and counting.

    Now I for one would welcome a Sneijder in a LFC shirt. He would add a whole different level of control to our game and midfield and having him behind Suarez is quite a mouth watering prospect. It's all pie in the sky though, I think. He still wont come cheap, and the injury bugs me, whatever it is. But class is definitely class and this guy has it in spades. To me it sounded like this journo was one of Sneijder's agents and took the opportunity to go fishing.

    So basically Sneijder is still available by all accounts. We would stand a chanebt in all seriosuness I think the club is looking elsewhere.

    I'm tired now. How do you type so much Jason?
