Liverpool: Rumours - Roy's Shopping List?

The rumours of who Roy Hodgson wants to bring to Anfield are now beginning to grow as his official appointment draws closer. Brede Hangeland has already been mentioned as a player that he wants to bring with him from Fulham and there are three others in the tabloids today, some that will be greeted with more enthusiasm than others I'm sure. Danny Murphy, who has backed his Fulham Boss' switch to Liverpool, was a well liked and respected player during his seven years with the club. The 33 year old has grown as a player since he left for Charlton (and then current club Fulham) however in my honest opinion I'm not sure how well an Anfield return would go down with the supporters as it'll not be a name to get the blood pumping will it? Danny would jump at the chance I'm sure. Liverpool have been "monitoring" Gilberto Silva at the World Cup, even though I'm still not sure who was doing this unless it was Roy who has always been there or thereabout as the new Reds Boss? The Brazilian international is seen as a ready made replacement for want away midfielder Javier Mascherano. Gilberto has been very good at the World Cup but at 33 isn't getting any younger however he'd do well I think. The name that would excite people the most is Rafael Van der Vaart, who has often been linked with a move to Merseyside, or the Premier League, yet this has never happened. The Dutch international is believed to be happy at Real Madrid however their new Boss Jose Mourinho is going to have to move on some players and England could be his destination. It's believed that Hodgson will have £15m to spend, plus some money that can be generated from player's sales. I worry that Dumb and Dumber will manage to talk Hodgson into selling some of the prized assets with promises of some money however little of that will actually been seen as they'll need this to pay off their debts. We've got to get Roy officially appointed first of all though and then we'll see what happens after this.

The former Liverpool captain Phil Thompson believes the appointment of Roy Hodgson as manager can signal the beginning of a new era at Anfield.

Hodgson was confirmed as Rafael Benítez's replacement on a three-year contract this morning after the finer details of his severance from Craven Cottage were finalised. Thompson, a European Cup-winning captain with the Reds, now hopes new owners can also be found so the club can move forward after a period of stagnation under Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

"We need the sale of the club sorted to enable us to really go forward," he said. "I just hope it won't be too long before that's done. With a new boss and new owners it really would be the dawn of a new era."

Thompson, who was assistant manager during Frenchman Gérard Houllier's reign, believes Hodgson will help bring stability to Liverpool.

"After having foreign managers in Gérard Houllier and Rafa Benítez, it seems there was a thought process of going back to British," he added. "The club needs a steadying influence and Roy will provide that.

"He's done a fantastic job at Fulham and has a wealth of experience having managed all over Europe. This is one of those jobs Roy had hoped and prayed for and it's a fantastic opportunity for him."

Thompson admits Hodgson's appointment will probably not be wholeheartedly welcomed by fans but he urged everyone at the club and supporters to get behind the new man.

"The big thing now is to get everyone on board comfortable with his ideas and visions for the football club. He has to unite everyone," he told the Liverpool Echo. "All summer there have been rumours about players going, but he's only just arrived and he won't want anyone leaving.

"He's a shrewd talker and I'm sure he will find the right words and the right manner to speak to players and convince them to stay. He will want to build for the future around Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres and Javier Mascherano.

"If – and it's a big if – players are sold then that cash has to be reinvested in the squad, and not go to the banks to pay off debt. No matter what you say about Rafa Benítez, he wasn't helped in that area. The board have to back Roy financially."
