Liverpool offer Anfield cat three-and-a-half year contract – as seen on Newsthump

Liverpool have looked to bolster their attack by signing the Anfield cat, who showed much more promise in the one minute he was on the pitch against Spurs than Andy Carroll has all season.

Kenny Dalglish was quick to move after watching replays of the ease and fluidity with which the feline striker ran into the box on Monday night and bamboozled Brad Friedel.

Always ready to pounce

Dalglish said, “He’s beaten the keeper with a confidence Dirk Kuyt could only dream of.

“Some of the pigeons up in the stands were cooing unhappily that he’d shown threatening behaviour towards them, but it’s all a bit of banter as far as I’m concerned.

“I’d like to see the FA’s independent panel prove it, anyway.”

Both parties are reportedly happy about the agreement, with the cat satisfied to bide his time at Anfield until a bigger club which can offer regular Champions League football comes in.

“When Kenny showed him the contract, he was really purring with delight,” revealed animal sport psychologist Rich Jones, on behalf of his furry client.

“Although it might have been because of the tuna sandwich which was on Kenny’s desk.

“Then when they were talking him through the goal and assist bonuses, he became distracted and started trying to get his paws on the liverbird on the ‘This is Anfield’ sign.

“Still seems less temperamental than Luis Suarez at least.”

    The Anfield Cat looks like the classic #9. Did you see the way we bamboozled Friedel when it was on the pitch!?

      Yep you’re right. A typical no. 9 with such a direct approach to goal, but showed more agility than most!

  1. No trackbacks yet.
