Liverpool preparing audacious bid for Blackburn chicken

No longer top flight

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has already earmarked his first big signing of the summer in the feathered shape of Blackburn’s chicken.

The chicken came on to give the Wigan keeper the run-around in the first half at Ewood Park last night, showing enough guile in the box to make Dalglish think that he had spotted a potential replacement for Andy Carroll.

Adding to Dalglish’s interest is the disappointing drop in form of the Anfield cat, who has been seen on the pitch even less than Jordan Henderson since his appearance against Spurs.

Liverpool responded to the transfer speculation, “We don’t wish to comment on another club’s players. Or animals.”

“After the signings Kenny made last summer though, a chicken looks like a fairly solid investment in comparison.”

Blackburn chicken

Blackburn are determined to hang on to their new star however, with doubts over a big-money transfer to Liverpool due to implications involving financial fowl play rules.

Manager Steve Kean said, “The chicken was our outstanding player against Wigan and he won’t be going cheap.”

“I didn’t see him in the dressing room before the match but he seemed to have a much better grasp of my tactics than the rest of the team.”

“It’s so frustrating for a manager when only one chicken is capable of following your best-laid plans.”

“Our main concern is that a chicken of that quality might not be happy plying his trade in the championship, especially considering the performances of his team-mates this season.”

    I thought the keeper was fowled for the Wigan goal

      He seemed to lack commitment. We could say he chickened out.

        I can’t think of anymore chicken puns – sorry.
