Harry Kewl is such an exellent player and to go for that amount of money is just wrong! i'd love if juve bought him but he is not juve material. I do not understand what Leeds are doing to themselve they should be a shamed of the way they have been acting in the transfer market the last few years.

I can't really understand why his prize was that low. I mean the market isn't all that dead. I mean Chivu is not 10 million dollars better than him.
Perhaps it was his salary that scared the clubs :undecide:
Anyone who knows how high it was?

I don't know if you can win it, but with United lacking a beckham replacement, arsenal not buying anyone, you have a great chance.

I don't hate your team anymore, kewell is a fantastic player, you should be able to play some good football now :cool:

Kewell and Owen will be too much for most teams

I was talking with my friends in the pub the other day and we all agreed that we were lacking a creative player in midfield we actualy have got one of the best there is now and for such a small fee means we probley have money to sign one or two others as well. We also discussed that if we are to mount a serious title challange then Murphy and Carragher cant be classed as regulars in the side.

in reply to zambrotta Kewell only had a year left on his contract.

you're right there. Many people were praising murpy last year, but to be honest I haven't seen all that much in him to think he should start for liverpool.

Still need another winger though methinks, assuming kewell will play left mid. Hamann gerrard is great in the middle, you got a solid defence too, its looking good

Can I get in between here for a second? I'd like to know what the situation with Jerzy Dudek is, haven't heard anything about that for a while now - are Liverpool hanging on to him?

yeah big talking point at anfield. Dudek (dude as he is known locally) finished last season as number 1, only because Chris Kirkland (future england no1 possibley for euro 2004) got injured, I think if Kirkland wins the No 1 shirt for the start of next season we could see the last of Dudek.

Dudek was excellent in his first season but had a terrible time last season.

Montero, I Think El Hadji Diouf will play on the right, he is a good player it will just take a little time to adapt to the english game I think he finished last season very well and could be a surprise package this season. fingers crossed because the fans love him.

This is a good signing for Liverpool, now they just need another 7 or 8 players and a new manager and they will have a great chance to qualify for the CL.

Don't know about that .. the player has certainly got amazing pace and great ball skills but he usually struggles in the big stage .. and that's why I think he refused to join Man Utd, Arsenal, or even Barca ..

He struggled for much of last season .. only showing glimpses of cynical form towards the end of the season, probably to convince suitors of his abilities .. he is also injury-prone as he missed probably Leeds best run of form when they reached the memorable Champions League semifinal stages in 2001 without him .. he also missed many other important matches due to his different injuries ..

Kewell also struggled with Australia when he abandoned the wide midfield role to play in his more coveted central one .. and most notabely was the shameful display in the World Cup play-off against Uruguay when people weren't even sure if he was on the pitch that day !!

But I think Kewell could really put that behind him and look forward to his new experience with Liverpool .. he will certainly be put under the microscope and after Diouf flopped last season he better show his worth for Houllier's sake !!

This would be good for the EPL .. as the powers are slowly being distributed evenly between the top teams .. now that Liverpool and are Chelsea supposedly right on the backs of Arsenal and Man Utd ..

I read in the soccerage Kewell was essentially "tapped" hence why he moved to Liverpool for 5m pound, 2m of which went to the agent.
If that is found true, I think FIFA should investigate the situation and fine Liverpool, Kewell's agent and Kewell substantial amount of money for a breach of regulation, if I correctly remember forbids such conduct.
While FIFA intends to kick out racism, and violence on the pitch, IMO, just as alarming matter is stamping out illegal and admittingly annoying transfer activities by the agents and clubs.
This is not just confined to EPL. I am pretty sure basic deal was agreed between Beckam and Real way before the deal was concluded, and Figo himself admitted he agreed to join Real during the Perez's election campaign hence he was illegal tapped.
If teams want to buy players, contact the respective club first and once the deal has been agreed then they can talk to the players. As for the agents, if they are found trying to sell off their agent to other clubs in such manner that is detrimental to the team, then they should be evicted of their licensce, subject to heavy fine, and ban to manage players for couple of years.
