It's similar to United signing Sheringham at 31, he won't need or want too many games but could provide something different when he does play and adds depth to their squad, smart signing in my opinion and hasn't cost the Earth.

So basically Liverpool are resigning Charlie Adam and Andy Carroll or their clones.

Giving up regular first team football and a place in the England squad for a chance to sit on the bench for most of the season doesn't make much sense to me

this could actually be an intelligent move, good player (one of the top strikers for a couple of years he's been in the top flight), fan/local lad so happy to play second fiddle to his superiours (Suarez and Sturridge) and able to provide them with a rest when we need them too be out (hopefully Borini will do the same), his style means he could play at this level for more than most strikers could since he doesn't rely on pace more on ability and it's cheap pricewise so we can put funds into other area's of the pitch. although we have 2 of the best strikers in the league it's nice to have a good striker backing them up. now onto Moreno, Lallana, Can , Shaqiri or whoever we are being linked with

I did not see this one coming. I'm happy for Lambert, it must be pretty awesome for him; playing at a World Cup and getting a transfer to a title-challenging, Champions League team at 32. I can't imagine he thought he'd get this chance at this stage of his career.

Bookies will suspend betting on a transfer at the drop of a hat because 1) it's the type of market that's very susceptible to insider trading 2) it's a novelty bet so they'll have limited liquidity and if there's a run on a particular outcome (even without any insider info) they will rack up a liability they could do without. Sky Bet, though a bookmaker I have a lot of time for, aren't the biggest so aren't going to take much money on one of these before suspending, and every time they do Sky Sports seem to make a story of it. Watching supposed 'ITK' figures in the media or on message boards retrospectively claiming prior knowledge of deals/interest in these circumstances (& I suspect making up fees) is embarrassing. I would like to see Lambert at Liverpool though, at the right price.

This is a weird one... Rogers is no doubt a top man manager, but his transfer dealings are random to say the least...

So who will sit on the bench next season, Sturridge or Lambert?

So if Liverpool sign lambert and lallana they will have the LAL to go with the SAS. Is it some sort of game? Can they only sign players who's surnames begin with the same letter or something!

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
