      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.

      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.

      Good riddance, hope he doesn't bungle this like he did last season.

      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.

      Great post. I am on the same boat. Good luck to him if he leaves.

      Good lucjk to Fabio, he committed the heinous crime of wanting to stay and fight for his place. Probably wasn't ever good enough but never complained publicly or cause problems

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

      Cant believe we still got estimated 10 million quid for this lad.

      All the best Fabio.

      Never LFC quality, same as a good number we currently have in the side.

      Not sure what his wages were but going on 75k a week he cost an extra £10m to warm the bench for a year rather than go there last year for £16m.

      Well no he couldn't, because nobody offered £16mill, around 12 is more accurate and I think that was from QPR.

      We have got basically £10mill back for him so for a guy that barely played for us, that's not too bad when you consider we paid around £10.8mill for him.

      Sunderland bid £14 million last summer.

      To be fair, at least he scored a pretty damn nice lob against the Mancs. That almost makes up for how bad he was in every other game. Almost.

      Did he also score against Madrid? It's all coming back to me now that lob was tasty

      Fabio was just another player that didn't fulfil his potential.
      I can understand the reasons for buying him, young, Italian international, but will go down as yet another failure.

      Failure in terms of playing time and having an impact on the squad, but unlike some, we've actually managed to recoup our money on him if all clauses are activated.

      This makes John Henry very happy.

      Makes the net spend look fantastic! (from Hong Henry's point of view)

      I assume the money saved will go towards the new stand then.
