"Great and I hope that's true about Sneijder. Player who only wants to play in England no matter what and waiting for big wages, can move alone.. Is he really that type of player who fits Liverpool way? I don't believe it."

Guy hasn't been great, let alone good for about 2 years, claims he doesn't care about money yet his wages say something else entirely (okay he's a big name so he knows clubs will pay big money for him), and he is injury prone really hope BR gets someone better than him"

Add to that the fact that he hasn't been playing that well for the last two years. Another Joe Cole... Better off waiting until the summer and getting a young CAM with quality like Gotze or Eriksen. Sometimes you just have to be patient when there's nothing on offer."
