Hyypia the next Target?

After being linked to Sami Hyypia earlier in the summer but without a move materialising, things could be about to change.

The press are today reporting that the Finnish international could be on the verge of leaving Liverpool due to a lack of first team opportunities.

The thirty-three year old is reportedly seen by Sanchez as a key part of his plans for next season.

Whether Hyypia can be enticed to Craven Cottage remains another question as it`s also being reported that West Ham, Wigan and Newcastle are also monitoring developments.

At thirty-three he's definitely one for the future!
merlin
Like Shevchenko, Merlin?
Aamir
so you actually go to other clubs sites to obsess about us Merlin? Wowzers. Seriously though, why would Sami leave and why would we sell him?
Nozzy06
If we sell him we won't have a good backup at CB. Either there is a new CB coming to Liverpool or we won't sell him.
JohnDoe
boring boring, petty london squabbles, go for it cottages, could give you a good season or two, he's not spanish enough for liverpool.
Tonytime
And he's too good for Wigan and Fulham. If he does move, it'll be to someone like West Ham. Tonytime, we have 5 Spaniards: Benitez, Reina, Arbeloa, Alonso, Torres. We have more British or 'nearly-British' players: Carson, Carra, Gerrard, Crouch, Pennant, Finnan (Irish) and Kewell has spent his whole career playing in England.
Aamir
merlin - perhaps he's maturing like a fine wine!
Putney
ok 5 english players, 4 spanish, plus a spanish manager, one irish 0ne aussie, apologies, oh er, squad of 32, 15% english 15% spanish, where did it all go wrong Aamir. Chelsea are more British than Liverpool these days.
Tonytime
...Ayesteran, Valero, Vales, Salinas, Gomez, Roque, Duran and we've seen Garcia, Nunez, Morientes, Josemi, Barragan leave. Gonzalez, Benayoun and Aurelio all played in Spain. Pretty please Aamir, stop making a muppet of yourself. We have a Spanish manager, he likes Spanish players. Wenger likes Frenchmen, Mourinho likes Portuguese. I dont give two flying *****s what nationality a player is, its not our responsibility to provide players for England its our responsibility to buy the best players. Alonso for £10 million or Hargreaves for £17 million?
Nozzy06
i agree with nozzyo, managers do what they think best for the club, of course their nationality does have a bearing on their thinkng. i would love a flying *****, couldnt afford to give two away cos ive never had even one, but we can all dream.
Tonytime
Nozzy, I love the squad we have right now. We have one of the best in Europe. I'm just explaining to Tonytime that just because we have a load of Spanish players, it doesn't mean every player must have a 'Spanishness' about them as was suggested.
Aamir
Appparently Hyypia is best buddies with Niemi and thats why he wouldn't mind coming to Fulham!
oranje_emu
paella and chips ( sorry patatas fritas) please, with tapas on the sidet, two san miguels, and gaspacho to start, por favor, gracias.
Tonytime
They are both Finnish. But I think with the options he has available, Fulham would be a step down. He can stay with us, go to West Ham, Newcastle or a good foreign team.
Aamir
Tonytime, the only bits I understood were and, chips, sorry, with, on, the, two, and, to, start, gracias.
Aamir
lots of spanish tavernas in london, fulham or west ham would be a good call, or over to spain, cant see it happening in newcastle though, unless he wants to sample a bit of english.
Tonytime
No not every player has to be Spanish, but we have a very Spanish feel to the side and there's no point anyone denying that. And thats no bad thing. The England national side has a history of terribly boring football and awful managers, why should we want to respresent that?
Nozzy06
i agree again nozzyo, liverpool have a great tradition of football, and lately england have not, viva liverpool, viva espania , merseyside seperatist right on, kirkby del sol et la future, bueno.
Tonytime
Talk in F***** Englaish, Tonytime!!! As I said Nozzy, I love the squad we have. I'm just sick of people taking mick out of us because we have a Spanish feel. And by the way, I love the England National team almost as much as I love Liverpool.
Aamir
Aamir, im representing your club, its 15% English, im glad you love the England team, I do, and I look forward to the time when Liverpool as in the past will supply a lot of players to it. Right now you have only a squad of 5 for McClaren to chose from. e all loove our clubs but come on, sometimes things go a bit too far, and Liverpool is just too Spanish right now.
Tonytime
Tonytime, no puedo entender lo que usted está diciendo. Por favor charla en inglés. Gracias.
Aamir
Rafa loves his Spanish, Jose loves his Portuguese, Wenger loves his French.
Aamir
You love the England national team almost as much as you love Liverpool? Aamir, really dont need to say another thing to you. Thats show beyond ay shadow of a doubt, you have no idea what supporting Liverpool means. Tony, Carra doesnt play for England anymore so its only 4. Too Spanish for who?
Nozzy06
Wait, wait, wait. Let me retype that. Rafael ama su español, amors de Jose su portugués, amors de Wenger su francés.
Aamir
Nozzy, I love England and I love Liverpool more.
Aamir
Aamir, no need to use Usted we are all friends here, no need for formality.
Tonytime
I used Babel fish translation from Google.
Aamir
You're a disgrace Aamir. Thats not how Liverpool do things. Its Liverpool 1st, Liverpool 2nd and Liverpool 3rd. True reds care about the reserves more than they care about England. You. Are. A. Disgrace.
Nozzy06
nice wind up nozzyo, stick at it aamir, i get the feeling old noz might be a touch catalan, or if not yet, certainly thinking of defecting !! lol
Tonytime
I am Liverpool, Liverpool, Liverpool. All I said was that I also love England.
Aamir
No you said you loved England almost as much as you loved Liverpool. Thats fine, thats your choice. But make no mistake, thats not the Liverpool way. Just so you know. No point furiously back-pedalling like you did when you said you laughed when Frank Lampard got injured.
Nozzy06
I said I loved England almost as much as L'pool. Many L'pool fans say that.
Aamir
No more going for non league players then for you lot.
Frisky
longest thread on Vital Fulham?
merlin
That would be a very good signing with his experience.
dazza71
and getting even longer :-)
