Liverpool to make bid for Southampton supporters

author avatar by 10 years ago

Liverpool FC is to continue its gradual acquisition of Southampton football club by making a bid for the fans of the south coast team.

After securing three first teamers from Southampton in Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, and Rickie Lambert, Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has spoken of his desire to strengthen Liverpool’s Southampton contingent even further.

The Liverpool manager explained, “I know the Southampton fans could do a job for us, and we’re spending so much time down there anyway I thought we might as well try to bring a few back with me.”

“We got Champions League commitments to think about, so going to matches every week is going to be expensive for our current fans – this new blood will help keep the gate receipts ticking over on a cold winters day against Burnley.”

“People will say I’ve got an unhealthy fascination with all things Southampton, but I would say they’re wrong – my obsession is perfectly healthy.”

“My request to have white stripes added to our home kit is just a coincidence.”

“Look, we’ve got the Suarez money burning a hole in our pocket, and what better way to spend it than by luring a few more fans in our direction, and helping us reach our aim of being the best supported team in the league.”

“After all, throwing money at the problem seems to have worked wonders for Man City.”
