ENGLAND’S biggest and best club Liverpool are having a torrid time of late, what with daily fan protests against the club’s owners, underpeforming star players, stuttering form in the Premier League leaving them one point off relegation spots, losing to lowly Northampton Town in the League Cup, a far from convincing run in Europe’s consolation competition the Europa League etc. etc.
This weekend’s opposition Blackpool are actually ahead of them in the Premier League as things stand.
But Koppites can at least take heart in one piece of news – perennially poor midfielder Lucas Leiva is finally set to leave the club.
The Brazilian is wanted by Italian trio Juventus, Palermo and Inter Milan, with a January transfer expected to be arranged – meaning an estimated ÃÂ£9m swell to the Anfield coffers and more gametime for the likes of Raul Meireles, Milan Jovanovic, Maxi Rodriguez, Christian Poulsen, Joe Cole and Steven Gerrard.
