The thread's locked now, but have a look at the qoute by Tom Werner...
I think the threads been locked because all hands are getting in the usual lather over a player that's been linked to us. But it looks to me as if Werner's been asked about Dempsey and he's replied, A great player, anyone would be made up to have him.
But, to me anyway, there's a very dodgy part in what Werner's said...
"We have great confidence in Kenny. He enjoys our full support," Werner told Goal.com via email. "We are confident that we will be making further progress in the future, and we are hard at work identifying transfer targets to help us continue to improve the squad."
I'd like to know, how was this interview arranged.
Did Werner ask to talk to them? Because, to me anyway, that sounds very much like the ominous and dreaded Chairman's, "We've got full confidence in our manager," malarkey just before a change is made.
If a mod pops in here, they'll probably get a cob on with me saying that. Can't say I blame them, with how it's been out there lately. But they've seen enough of them qoutes to know exactly how ominous that could be. I just can't work out why Werner's coming out with it just before the most important game his company have faced since taking over at Liverpool.
I hope I'm seeing smoke where there's no fire, and I'm not going off on one my mad conspiracy theories. But I don't like what he's said one bit, and that he's said it now. I suppose I should just take it at face value, that he's supporting Kenny before the final. But even then, it's still a rik to me. If I'm looking at it like that, imagine what the likes of Henry Winter is reading between the lines. I wish chairmen would just sign the cheques and keep schtum again.
