Liverpool get about the best news they have gotten all season

Thursday, March 25, 2010

Its sad to think that Javier Mascherano signing a new contract is the highlight of Liverpool's season. The Argentinian midfielder is expected to a sign a new contract with the Reds very shortly. Mascherano had been a target for Barcelona last summer and signing a new contract has signalled his intent to stay at Anfield.

I have said it before, and I'll say it again, its been a dismal season for Liverpool. With a Champions League spot seriously in doubt, they will need all the confidence they can get. Surely if they don't make 4th spot the likes of Torres will be packing their bags. Not Mascherano anyway.

"Liverpool know I want to stay. I don't think it will be difficult to arrive at a deal and we will see what happens in the next few weeks."

Personally I don't rate Mascherano very highly. He is a good defensive midfielder but offers nothing going forward and seems to just get yellow/red cards all the time and then smiles about it. If Liverpool could assure their fans that Torres will be at Anfield next season I'm sure they will be a lot happier.
