Liverpool Break The Bank For ‘Snoogy Doogy’

With Manchester United close to signing Bayern Munich’s Owen Hargreaves for almost £20 million and Chelsea expected to continue their policy of big name buys this summer, the pressure is on the Anfield club to keep up with their Premiership rivals.

With owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks desperate for Liverpool to mount a serious challenge for the domestic title as well as in Europe, the likelihood is that Benitez will spend some serious money in the summer.

While the likes of Barcelona’s Samuel Eto’o, Valencia’s David Villa and even West Ham’s Carlos Tevez all possible targets, another name, according to Gillett, has come into the frame. Says he, “If Rafa said he wanted to buy ‘Snoogy Doogy‘ we would back him.”

And who said Americans know nothing about ‘soccer’?

The very hairy and very smug Noel Edmonds is set to pocket £400,000 for fronting a new Sky One quiz show – “Are You Smarter Than A 10-Year-Old?”. Yes I am, actually.
