* Pepe wants a long-term deal
He'll get it. The best keeper in the world... most the time. Also glad to see he's got a scouser baby-momma.
* Speaking of goalkeepers, we just recently signed 16-year-old Australian Dean Bouzanis
Looks like he might be our keeper post-Reina as Benitez rates him as one of the best young keepers in the world. That brings our number of net-minders to six, not including three more in the Academy. Of course, Bouzanis and Scott Carson are out on loan and this is more-than-likely Dudek's last season.
* And not that we need anymore keeper talk, Wenger is eyeing Carson
I think Carson is getting the picture about his future at Anfield.
* It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out we're going to need youth and speed on our defense soon, first up being Magpies' Steven Taylor
Roeder is giving the no way in hell stance. We'll see.
* Speaking of which, Godwin Antwi sent out on loan to Accrington Stanley
The 18-year-old central defender was a part of our FA Youth Cup Champion squad. Not sure what his future with our squad will be, but the U19 Spain International will probably play immediately for his new temporary club.
