It's always possible, but what I liked most of all were the comments.  My favorites are:

The time is right to get rid of all overseas player and re build the team from the local talent in liverpool.We must keep Gerrard.

A terrific opinion about only playing local lads from neilred in Australia!

if stevie leaves the reds il stop supporting liverpool

Go 'ed, liverpool fan of Liverpool!

If Stevie asks to leave in the summer, then I think the Owners have no choice but to sell and get out. Promise after promise broken.

Yes, I'm sure they'd realise the error of their ways after selling Gerrard and do the decent thing.

If this happened, it would not be popular. That said, you couldn't blame Steven and the team might play more freely without his influence.

Well, we've all seen how "freely" they play without Gerrard.

He has been sulking for the past month now so it's no surprise these stories have come out given their recent form, he knows he can't do everything on his own!

The owners would have to line up a decent replacement if he did leave as the fans would be fuming, esp if Torres followed him as well!

Where's Gerrard going to go, though?

They were saying 35 million on Sky ! Is he not a little old for that sort of cash ?

He would only move "to win the league" but he has fucked off Chelsea twice, cant see he would have the brass neck to go to Man U even if they wanted / could afford him, that leaves Arsenal? never going to happen....Man City ?

Can't see him at any other team in PL myself.

Milan/Barca/Real

Real's the only one there that I could see him going too. I doubt Barca have the money, nor do they really need him, and I can't see Milan being able to afford him, nor him wanting to go there.

What's he got left on his contract? By that I mean, he's 30. He can't be worth that much money? And he's always been plagued by a dodgy hammy.

According to the press this week  :snigger: it's Barca

This....... Barca is now full of world class midfielders, so no need for Ger to go there. Only Real Madrid is possible IMO.

Inter maybe, but I doubt he'll go anywhere. Torres on the other hand will be gone if rafa leaves.

He doesn't fit in with Barca's style of play though IMO. He's too direct for a deep-lying midfielder and I don't think he's actually good enough in the head to play in the Barca team. They are full of very intelligent players, and whilst he may be very quick and have an excellent shot and passing range, I just don't see him fitting in at all.

Also, I can't see them wanting/needing him. Where would he fit in? Because Lordy knows he ain't dropping Xavi/Iniesta, so it looks like a place on the bench for a fella pushing 30 costing £130,000+-a-week. Makes no sense.

I could see Torres maybe going to Barca to take Henry's place in the long run. Also because he hates Real! But he'd cost around £65 million. No way do Barca have that money so it'd have to be a swap deal!
