He continued, "All you scousers hang on tight to those shares your not going anywhere anyway except the dss u scally monkeys"
The club rumored to be part of a shares for potatoes deal had been valued at a bag of carrots and two potatoes, has been bought in what seems to be credit crunch bargain bonanza price of just one potatoe and two carrots.
Speculators though moved to suggest that this may well be seriously over priced as markets particularaly Bolton Indoor continue to slump.
Cat Deelybopper said, "Peace Love and potatoes Maaaan"
Local Pundit Scouser McCarthief suggested that with all that running shit over Goodison Park the carrots and potaoes may do well.
