      Mark Kennedy.
      Most expensive teenager in the country when we bought him.
      Absolute wand of a left foot, and I haven't seen many players strike a ball more cleanly.

      Unfortunately, it seemed he had few other attributes, and after a handful of appearances for us, went on loan, and then left.
      He still managed a decent career, but never hit the heights his early price tag suggested he would.

      I didn't follow his career very closely but he got a decent number of caps for RoI, and played for some big clubs.

      Really? I can think of one straight away.

      I remember him having a boss game very early on with us against Barcelona, played LB and had Messi in his pocket all game.

      I’d say he was better than average. Certainly significantly better than that clown Johnson who came in after him.

      I thought Arbeloa was excellent - if anything a greatly underrated player (much like his predecessor at right back Steve Finnan) in defence.

      Likewise - Johnson was a car crash of a defender and one who got too much of a pass. Unfortunately it was signings like that which did for Rafa in the end sadly.

      Dossena.  Scored the fourth in the 4-1 win at the toilet.

      When was the last time we saw two left backs score in the same game?  Aurelio scored on a free kick earlier in that match.

      That’s a great shout actually. Really liked him, think he got too much football too soon and went downhill in the end but he definitely had a lot of potential.

      Anyone know what happened to him after us?

      A few different clubs, then ended up at Suttgart, according to wiki.

      Cheers mate, just had a brief look too. Sporting, Atletico before Stuttgart and a handful of caps for Argentina. Glad he worked out having a decent career.

      One that we all loved (mostly based on hype) was Krisztian Nemeth. The hype around him was insane!!

      It's a shame, the guy had a lot of potential. His shooting, passing and confidence are fantastic.


      I'd go for Bellamy and Benayoun.

      Not among the best players but I liked it whenever they played.

      Another player I liked a lot was Rodriguez, he could be invisible a whole game but still managed to score or contribute to one goal.

      Mamoodoo Sakho ...don't know how to spell his first name, he's at Crystal Palace.

      When we signed him, thought he was going to be a Beast, The French Captain, big mudder f**ker who would make that backline his Bitch.

      I then changed my mind on him after I saw him play a few games, totally had no faith in him, was a calamity waiting to happen. He fu**ed up big time on that American pre season tour and that was the end of his LFC career.

      Had high hopes for him but they were dashed quickly.


      This guy is a mystery. So skilled and talented but once per game he'll make a really silly thing which can cost a goal. He also runs like a giraffe (no offense to giraffes) but he still manages to keep the ball...

      I still cannot understand what happened. For me Sakho is a much more talented player than Lovren or even Matip, but his frequent silly mistakes are not acceptable.

      Would say better than average, but Jamie Redknapp. Great player on his day, ravaged by injuries.

      I remember the FA Cup final from 2001, where big Sami, Fowler and Redknapp lifted the trophy together.

      That Aurelio goal was a cracker,Manure didn't have a clue  how to defend it.Just one thing didn't that goal come from the right hand side.
