Maddy’s Note: BigFourZa, embracing the spirit of transfer season has brought in the highly rated 22 year Karthik, from an unnamed source (he might be called Sai Adithya. Or Kia Joorabchian) at an undisclosed loacation for an unnamed fee. Although he’s certainly nowhere close to the 20m King Kenny doled out for Henderson, hopefully he performs better for us than the youngster did for the U21s.
A new season is about to start with Kenny Dalglish at the helm. Though Liverpool look to start the season with a number of new signings, there are still a few hindrances. Useless players with huge wage bills have to be booted out. Lets see who are the flops of the Kop
Milan Jovanovic: Signed as a free transfer from Standard Liege by Roy Hodgson, he was a player who was earmarked by the previous manager Rafael Benitez. Benitez in his press conferences stated that he was a player who would supposedly complement Torres. Weird though, cause he just runs around the pitch looking at the ground with no thought whatsoever on players around him. Earning a massive 110,000 pounds pay in wages per week he is one of highest paid players of the club, but with less than 10 performances last season.
Joe Cole: Another free transfer signing and touted as the biggest signing for Liverpool, he received a red card on debut and played most of the matches for the reserve team. He too earns 90,000 pounds per week and is stuck at Anfield with no one willing to match his wage requirements.
Paul Konchesky: One of the worst signings in Liverpool’s recent history, he was Roy Hodgson’s favorite player. Stated by Hodgson as the player to strengthen Liverpool’s back four, he practically destroyed the defense. Young Jack Robinson with no first team experience proved more capable than Konchesky. He surely deserves to be the first player to be booted.
Christian Poulsen: Another Hodgson favorite, he did nothing more than give away possession and receive a few yellow cards in his time on the field. Another ‘massive’ signing (well, only in terms of wages). Known for his outbursts and temper tantrums in the serie A, he had a quarrel with Totti, kicked Kaka, punched Rosenberg while playing for the national team.
Moreover Liverpool fans will want these players out by any means, as the wages of these players amounts to a massive 374,000 pounds per week, which will also cause major problems for Liverpool in the financial fair play which comes into effect the next seaon!
What we need – A Decent left back, probably someone like Aly Cissokho or at the least Gael Clichy. And an out and out winger (hope its not Downing.) And surely a backup striker, cause we all know Caroll’s injury prone. Connor Wickham fits the bill. He’s the most likely player to arrive following Kenny’s English desire.
