I really like Macca, I don't want him to leave!
I think anyone (even Anelka) has to be given a second-year chance, because sometimes during the first year one cannot adapt so quickly and of course can't play up to his full potential. There are a lot of examples to what I'm saying.
The truth is that rumors were around that Macca WOULD be leaving the next year. I don't know how much of it was true, but I've heard it even on Greek TV! They were saying that he'd return to Premiership, not to Liverpool though.
The way things have turned though, I think he'll stay. Especially if Keagan takes him to the english selection for Euro 2000.
