    I think Liverpool may wanna try playing in the S-league. In this way, they might qualify for Asian Champion League.

    thanks for your suggestion.. I believe it is far most useful recommendation i have ever heard.

    i am sure LFC board and S-League will look at this seriously and consider it.

    another Liverpool legend player critised the manager :

    LAWRENSON SLAMS RUDDERLESS REDS
    Wednesday 14 April 2004
    Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson believes the current Reds side is "going nowhere" under the leadership of Gerard Houllier.
    Houllier watched his team go down 1-0 at home to Charlton on Easter Monday, a result which severely dents their Champions League aspirations and they entertain Fulham on Saturday desperate to cling onto fourth place in the Barclaycard Premiership.
    Lawrenson is alarmed at the club's lack of consistency and revealed his fears in his column in the Liverpool Daily Post.
    "This team is going nowhere in my opinion," he said.
    "I've got nothing against Mr Houllier, but he's in his sixth year at the club now and it's all about management style.
    "Liverpool have struggled to beat many of the top sides this season because they haven't got enough options in attack.
    "Take two players who should be providing the quality from the flanks, Harry Kewell and El Hadji Diouf.
    "Kewell has been in and out of form all season, but Diouf? Does he add anything? No."

    Default 4th place is not good enough

    GH: WE SHOULD BE AIMING HIGHER THAN 4TH

    Gerard Houllier insists that although Liverpool should always be aiming higher than a fourth place finish, fans should not underestimate the importance of qualifying for the Champions League.

    Liverpool have endured an incredibly difficult season with long-term injuries to Michael Owen, Milan Baros, Jamie Carragher, Dietmar Hamann and Chris Kirkland all ensuring that Houllier had to wait until the turn of the year before he could even field his first choice starting line-up. Less serious injuries to Harry Kewell, Salif Diao, Stephane Henchoz, Vladimir Smicer, Steve Finnan, Anthony Le Tallec, Florent Sinama-Pongolle, Jerzy Dudek, Steven Gerrard, Bruno Cheyrou and John Welsh have also caused disruption as the Reds attempted to bounce back from the disappointment of missing out on 4th place at Stamford Bridge on the last day of last season.

    With crucial refereeing decisions also going against the Reds throughout the season - with not one but nine legitimate penalty appeals turned down throughout the season, including one against Manchester United that even Alex Ferguson admitted should have been given - the season has turned into a miserable campaign one many fans can't wait to see the back of. Houllier wouldn't argue with that but while he accepts it has been a disappointing 9 months for everyone involved with the club - players, staff and fans alike - a fourth place finish, while not ideal or something to celebrate in itself, can set Liverpool up very well for a new assault on the title next season. "People should not under-estimate the importance of fourth place and the reward it can bring," claims the Liverpool boss. "Certainly, Liverpool should be aiming higher than that. But in view of the season we have had, and the problems we have encountered, I would consider it a good achievement if we fulfilled our objective."

    but....we could not make it last season, if we can;t make it this season, it is because the new player bought during summer was not performing to the expected standard (ie..buy Cheyou and expect him to deliver the standard of Zidane), injuries, bad referee decisions but the manager ability.

    GH should go. Along with some of the players he brought into the squad. E.g. Heskey, Diouf, Biscan, Diao, Cheyrou etc. Time to revamp the entire squad. This inconsistency is driving me nuts too.

    Default Exclusive: Parry Answers Fans' Concerns

    No one would deny this has been a difficult season and with supporters concerned about events on and off the field, Rick Parry addressed some of those issues in an exclusive interview with lfc.tv.

    Liverpool's Chief Executive sat down with the club's official website last week before our matches against Arsenal and Charlton to answer questions raised by supporters about the proposed new stadium in Stanley Park, the financial situation at the club, Michael Owen's contract, Djibril Cisse, our difficult season, the race for fourth and the position of the manager.

    Rick, when can we expect news on the new stadium's plans submission as we were originally led to believe a decision would be made by March 2004, and will this delay proposal for a 2006 opening?

    Rick Parry: There's always a host of issues which arise, as has been the case this time. It's too early at this stage to say what it means for the opening date but none of the delays help, let's put it that way.

    Are you still confident at this stage that the stadium will go ahead as proposed?

    Rick Parry: Yes, we are very confident. We are still working full steam ahead addressing all the issues that the plans have raised and proceeding full steam ahead with our fundraising plans.

    If planning permission for the new stadium fails, will the ground share be revisited as an option for the future?

    I don't think we would re-look at ground sharing on the basis of planning failing. I think we've said that we don't have a plan B. We have put all our eggs into this one basket. We are working closely with the city and with the local community because we think that it's a tremendous solution, not just for us but also for the whole of north Liverpool. I don't think it will fail. I think there may be delays, there may be areas that have to be modified but we would be very disappointed if we ended up with a 'No' because that would essentially mean we hadn't done our homework somewhere along the line. We might have to refresh some of the ideas, we might have to have to introduce some modifications but this is the one that we are going for.

    Are you in any way concerned that we may not be able to fill a 60,000 stadium if some of our recent Premiership attendances are anything to go by?

    It's always a concern but if you plan for mediocrity then you will achieve it which is what we have said all along. What we have to do is to aim higher. You can't guarantee success but you can programme for it. Clearly it has always been our view that to compete with the best in Europe we have to generate more revenue and we have to have a greater capacity, so we can't change that as a policy. That has to be the right way forward. Again, as I've said repeatedly, the rate of change in football these days is such that standing still isn't an option. You either go forwards or you go backwards and for us going forwards is the only option.

    What was the main motivation in appointing Hawkpoint to review financial options for the club at this time and when do you expect to receive their recommendations?

    I think there are a number of factors. The chairman had said at the AGM that he would consider his position come the end of the season and that's something that we have to bear in mind. We have to look at our capital needs in terms of bearing in mind the stadium commitment and also the need for team building. We have clearly got to be mindful of that. We are clearly also very mindful that we had the approach from Steve Morgan which needs to be reviewed carefully. Really the decision was, 'Let's get some experts on board and look at all the options carefully and not be rushed into any one decision. Not get it wrong because any decision we take would clearly have a very major impact on the long term and wellbeing of the club.' So, get them on board and literally consider every possible option and see what they have to say and then decide what, if anything, we need to do. In terms of time scales we expect them to be reporting back in the next month or so and reviewing options across the close season, which is the right time frame to be taking major decisions. It's not the easiest to take long-term decisions in the middle of the season. Close season isn't very long these days but it gives us that window to think about the way ahead.

    Did the arrival of Roman Abramovich at Chelsea change the scenery of finance in football in this country?

    Of course it did. To an extent, there is now one market for Chelsea and one for everybody else. What you can't do is to try follow or copy Abramovich because that's the way to a certain ruin for everybody. You look at the last day of last season when we played at Chelsea, the painful memory that it is, they were on the verge of going into administration. I think had they not beaten us and got the Champions League qualification that might have happened. They go from a club on the brink to being the richest club in Europe overnight. I mean, that's the crazy thing about this industry. It certainly makes it lively like no other because that just couldn't happen anywhere else. Of course it changes all the dynamics for the rest of us.

    How can the club advertise the credit card the way they do, when it has become clear that the Academy is not producing players for Liverpool's future at the moment?

    I think that the Academy is a long-term investment, which we remain completely committed to, there's no shadow of a doubt about that. To say that it's not producing players I think is a mis-statement. We've had Jon Otsemobor playing games this season, back with us now after a short loan spell at Bolton, Neil Mellor has just come back from West Ham and celebrated his return with four goals in the Reserves against West Bromwich Albion.

    Totally agree

    Hopefully, they can get mexes in next season. Cisse i hope is alreday secured. If Houllier stilll around, who knows? Cisse may end up playing on the flamks or worse still on the bench

    Go Go Go..... Revamping time. Hopefully they can get Joe Cole as well man. Sell Sell Sell Buy Buy Buy.

    Just like in CS.

    7. Diouf

    But the thing is that if you had noticed with Pool is that they do not have the habit of sacking coaches. The coaches either leave or get bypass surgeries

    After reading today's latest news from the Liverpool website, I wanted to punch the screen of my monitor. That stupid thick skin manager said that he's confident of being in charge of Liverpool for another season and can't wait to launch another attack on the title and is still hopeful that he'll win the title with them. Probably during the bypass surgery they bypassed the oxygen to his brain as well. Crap man!!! He better go.

    it could be - ManU might have paid Houllier to defeat MU
    2001/02 - 1-0 at Old Trafford, 2 - 0 atAnfield
    2003/03, 3-1 at Anfield, 1-0 at Old Trafford
    and MU might have also paid Houllier to beat them 2-1 in the Charity Shield and Legaue Cup final respectively.

    If u would pay a boxer to beat u 6 times in a row, then there is no reason why MaNU should not pay to Houllier to destroy Liverpool.
