Le Tallec & Sinama To Be Offloaded?

Out of favour French youngsters Anthony Le Tallec and Florent Sinama-Pongolle are set to leave Liverpool this week, three years after signing for the club.

Neither player has been able to break into the first team regularly since being signed by former Reds boss Gerard Houllier in 2003.

The club have been forced to loan both players out in the past, and now Rafael Benitez is looking to offload the 21-year-olds who are not part of his plans.

Le Tallec looks set to sign for French side Sochux. He impressed in the French league at St Etienne during a loan spell there last year.

And striker Sinama-Pongolle has attracted the interest of Spanish outfit Osasuna after a good loan spell at Blackburn Rovers towards the end of last season.

With Pongolle set to leave, Benitez will step up the pace on signing a new striker in time for the new season with only Peter Crouch, Craig Bellamy and Robbie Fowler his first team forwards.

Drogballs: I couldn't be bothered with that Anthony Le Tallec to be honest. He's an ALRIGHT player with some potential. But rumours has it that he has a pretty shitty attitude. Whatever the case, he might be better off with Sunderland.

Sinama-Pongolle on the other hand, I for one will be pretty sad to see him leave. He's not bad actually, mobile, fast and nimble. Before you think about the millions we're about to get from his sale, always bear in mind what he did in that match against Luton. Without him, we'll be mightily embarassed and without him, could we have even reached the FA Cup finals?

Whatever the case, all the best lads. You'll Never Walk Alone...
