Blackburn hafa gefið Craig Bellamy [leyfi til að tala við Liverpool](http://home.skysports.com/list.asp?HLID=396617&CPID=8&title=Bellamy+in+Liverpool+talks&lid=&channel=worldcup2006&f=rss&clid=5). Stjórnarformaður Blackburn segir á heimasíðu félagsins:
>”We have made it crystal clear to Craig and his advisors that we want him at Ewood Park. We made him an improved offer before Liverpool declared their interest, an offer that was consistent with our ambition and determination to build on last season’s success.
>”The decision now rests with the player.”
Einsog margoft hefur komið fram þá er Bellamy Liverpool aðdáandi, sem dýrkaði landa sinn Ian Rush þegar hann var lítill. Það verður því að teljast afar líklegt að hann skrifi undir hjá Liverpool á næstu dögum. Frábært mál!

**Uppfært (EÖE)**: Ian Rush [tjáir sig](http://icliverpool.icnetwork.co.uk/0500liverpoolfc/0100news/tm_objectid=17261079%26method=full%26siteid=50061%26headline=bellamy%2dwill%2dgrab%2dsecond%2dchance%2dat%2dbig%2dtime-name_page.html) um Bellamy kaupin:
>”He’ll be a great signing because he’s exactly the type of striker we need. He’s got that extra quality the team has been lacking, which is lightning pace. For me, there’s no risk at all at £6m. Liverpool had nothing to lose to be bidding for him and it’s not a gamble at all. He’s a top, top player, and in my opinion is the reason Blackburn qualified for Europe last season. His goal against Portsmouth last season was my goal of the season.”
>”Every time I’ve met Craig when he was playing for other clubs, he’d come up to me, shake my hand and tell me I was his hero as a lad because he was a massive Liverpool supporter. So if he says he’s joining the club he supports if he signs, I know he means it.”

>”We have an agreement which allows us to talk to the player. “He is on holiday, but we will talk over the next few days. I know the player’s qualities very well. He is a very good footballer and now we need to see if he has the passion to play for our club.
>”I don’t think this will be a problem because he is a Liverpool fan, so I think it will be easy for him.
>”I will be talking to him to express my ideas. He has the ability, the pace and the talent we’ve been looking for and now we need to talk about other things.”
Echo segja svo að Daniel Alves og Dirk Kuyt séu núna forgansmál númer 1 og 2
