      I would literally just cut him loose. It's to the point where I'm annoyed he even has a player thread on the forum and that it keeps getting bumped (I'm guilty too ;D)

      Obviously only interested in money and not a career, one of the worst players ever to wear the Red shirt.

      Re: originally signing Borini: Fabio scored 10 in 26 for Roma the season before we signed him. That's a pretty decent strike rate, and £10.5m wasn't all that expensive either.

      Well in 2012/13 I remember the odd bright spark from him in the odd games and I believed he was hindered by injuries so didn't get a real groove, and I was willing to give him a chance, so when he came back from Sunderland last year, I still thought the same and believed 'hey, this lad can still do a decent job for us'.

      Now? I was completely wrong and I think he's a money grabbing little sh*t of a waste of space who was obviously a massive mistake to buy.

      If he doesn't leave, send him to train with the U18s, but even then that's a bad influence on the U18s. Whatever the case, we shouldn't be subsidising a bigger wage for him at another club and should let his career rot away.

      He'll soon find his place in a couple of years when he's making tea and biscuits at Dagenham & Redbridge's training ground.

      Borini's agent has been in discussion with Florentina with a view to taking Fabio off our hands:-

      They have been sniffing before about Borini, loan deal is a nap.

      But when he has played he has made an arse of it, like that game when he got sent off almost straight away after coming on as sub. Think that might have been the last straw with Brendan, don't think he played much after that.

      A year after he turned down a move to the Stadium of Light, Sunderland have held talks with Borini, if he claims a loyalty bonus the Trade Description people will be on his case.

      Personally I would rather he sat on the bench with the reserves for the next two years than let him go out on loan again.

      Sale or no deal.

      I agree and don't agree with this. The benefit to him going out on loan is that he might have a great season by his standards and increase interest in himself that would lead to a permanent move away and it did pretty much work last time he went out on loan, he just turned down Sunderland and QPR. But at the same time, there is no guarantee this would happen again or if it does then he might turn down the move again because he now thinks he would be able to challenge for us. Also we always seem to still pay most of the wages when players go out on loan so why should we pay for another team to potentially benefit from. Unless he scores winning goals against all the team we are competing with.

      said he wasn't good enough when he signed.  continued to say it when he put in terrible performance after terrible performance.  said he was useless and we needed to get rid of him.  of course I got slaughtered.  "too negative, he's young," blah blah blah.

      and lo and behold, I was right.

      and not only is he a terrible footballer but he's got no respect for the club or himself, happy to sit around and do nothing for another season while we pay the wages we never should've given him in the first place---wages no one else will pay him because they know he's not worth it.

      Think of all the money that was spent on him---his ridiculous fee, plus his wages---in the last few years.  And think of how that money could've been better spent. 

      It's just shocking, the way the club is run.

      Give it a rest fella plenty said he was shi....te from the beginning and continued in that vein from there on so stop trying to paint yourself as some sort of fountain of football predictions. He's always been shi....te and your not the only bugger to think or say it.

      nobody cares if you're right. nobody cares about being right or wrong. it's about supporting the players. do you really get a sense of self-satisfaction if a player fails at LFC, just because you called it? you shitstain.

      Erm.  No.  What I care about, and what you should care about as well, is the continual wasting of the club's limited transfer funds on sh*te players. 

      THAT is what matters.  It's happened with Borini, Lovren, Lallana, Allen, the list goes on and on.  And we don't seem to learn the lesson.

      If you don't think that is a problem then so be it.

      I have nothing against the guy, we bought him and gave him a contract.

      Rodgers 1st signing, and then played 38 games for us over 3 seasons. How many were from the kick off I wonder.

      I can't remember if he has bad mouthed the club, snuck off to buy a phone mid training session, needed a mid winter break etc, etc, just wanted to play for the club.

      Obviously not to the standard of Torres, or Suarez etc, but neither are a lot if our forwards, all of who have got games. I just don't know why Rodgers bought him, and did not play him. Not as if he did not know how he played, he worked with at 2 previous clubs.

      Borini is just a transfer that didn't work. Nothing more, really, other than refusing to leave when Sunderland offered 14m last year.
