When the biggest news a Liverpool player has had in a year is getting his mrs pregnant he needs to go.
West Ham come and get your man
I hear Southampton's nice this time of year. In fact all year round. Hint hint...
Bad buy from start to finish. Even if he fitted our tactics, which he really really doesn't, we should have waited a year and got him for nothing instead of wasting £40m on him.
There is no place for him anywhere in our line-up that suits the way he plays. The only real position he can play is on the right of a 4-4-2.
He is totally unsuited for central midfield, and the very fact he thinks he's a central midfielder shows a complete lack of understanding of the game he plays. He can't tackle, he can't pass, he can't pick up runners (probably the worst aspect of his game), he can't position himself on the field of play in a way that helps moves flow or breaks down opposition moves (he always seems to be standing in the wrong place). All he's got is the ability to lash in a long range strike once in a few seasons. That's it.
His positioning is so bad I'm actually surprised he managed to get his missus up the duff
