Robbie the Red!!!!!!!

Liverpool signs Robbie Keane from Tottenham. One of the missing links is inked...



Bleacher Report did a little Q & A with Keane, a childhood fan of Liverpool.

Apparently, Rafa is still trying to find the available financing to complete a deal for Aston Villa's Gareth Barry. If it calls for Xabi Alonso's departure...I say fine. And with Ryan Babel's development, I could probably do w/o Pennant as well. Or Voronin. Either way, if we get Barry to round out our midfield...the Prem will be ours! (bangs chest)

Other footie news...

My beloved TFC dropped another one Monday, losing out on at least a road point when Real Salt Lake's Robbie Findley scored in the 87th minute. I realize we suck on the road, but at least a point would've been nice. Now we're in a 4-way tie for last in the East. These are the bad times...again.

toronto tied the game in the 85th in a gorgeous free kick (about 25 yards out). two minutes later they were seen licking their wounds as they gave up a quickie. their defence was horrible that night.

and thank god salt lake is getting a new stadium/field. watching (or should i say trying to watch) games on that concrete, with football lines, is next to impossible.
