Maybe old news:
Liverpool are planning to offload a number of their squad as they look to freshen their squad with new additions this month. Caretaker boss Kenny Dalglish and Damien Comolli have identified a number of players they believe can be sold to help trim costs at the club ahead of potential additions. The likes of Ryan Babel, Glen Johnson, Emiliano Insua, Milan Jovanovic, Paul Konchesky and Christian Poulsen will all be made available either for permanent exits or loan deals.
There is as apparent interest in Dutch winger Babel who has failed to impress this season and the likes of West Ham and Ajax have reportedly taken an interest in the 24 year old. Glen Johnson will also be offloaded if any interested party is willing to make an offer within the same ball park as the £18m that was invested in his services, which may be a big ask, and Juventus are reportedly trailing the England international.
Emiliano Insua’s move to Fiorentina fell through in the summer and is also apparently a West Ham target and he may be a player that Liverpool chooses to farm out on a loan deal rather than sold off as the young Argentine has shown he has the potential to be a quality full back.
However it may prove difficult to find potential suitors for Milan Jovanovic, Paul Konchesky and Christian Poulsen, all of whom have not proven themselves to be worth first team consideration.
Serbian attacker Jovanovic is though apparently the subject of Bundesliga interest and Fulham may elect to bring Konchesky back to the club as Mark Hughes looks to strengthen his side as they look to push away from the relegation zone.
One player seemingly safe from the axe is Joe Cole who will hope to prove that his move to the club was not a failure. Liverpool’s owners are keen to freshen things up at Anfield and whilst they can see that the club needs improvement and that their squad is decidedly average it is however not a small squad and they feel that a clear-out is needed before any significant player purchases can be sanctioned.
Eat breath LIVERPOOL!!!
I'm not Howard Webb!

The point is he DIVED and yet he comes out to say he didn't. Come'on he could have shut his mouth and just rode his luck. But it is an utter disgrace.
And for the record.
Robbie Fowler famously stepped forward to admit that he wasn't touched after the ref deem he was fouled in the box and awarded a penalty.
Such integrity can only come out from a Liverpool player.
We welcome humorous comments from our neighbouring friends in our thread...unlike some thread who openly unwelcome others in theirs...
i don't know if birdbirdtov dived, i couldn't care less. but watching tv replay, i thought he wasn't well balanced before the contact was made. there was contact from behind by pushing, not a big push, but when a person is off balanced, it doesnt take much of a push to throw him off.
as for the red card, i think a minority liverpool fans have also admitted that under the rules, it warrants a red. of course, some other ref might have given a yellow or nothing at all. if it was inconsistency, then it happens all the time. it just sucks to happen in such a big match. put urself in the shoe of howard webb, in such a massive match, do u red the player or what. the on-the-spot judging is really difficult, i can tell u that. its just unfortunate.
like what i told any united or pool fans, u win some, u lose some. there isn't any need for bitterness. doesnt leave a good taste in the mouth to lose under controversial circumstances.
Great future striker for liverpool

I am good with loosing to man u, if everyone will get pissed with Howard Web (personal feelings all censored, not right to swear on line I understand), unite behind the manager and the team.. FA Cup.. nah.... if Babel gets fined and punished because he got angry because the ref was such an ........ (fill the blanks on your own) that's good too.. heck they played for so long with no soul and no passion... make sure you put Babel in for the next game, he will be all fired up. Heck it was worth it.
As for man u
