Joe Cole is at a very big crossroads in his football career.
The 29 year old Liverpool midfielder has not had a good 12 months at Anfield.
Sent off on the first day of last season’s opening game against Arsenal, he has struggled to make an impression in the team ever since.
Signed on a free from Chelsea by Christian Purslow (idiot) and Roy Hodgson, the England International has failed to get game-time under Kenny Dalglish since January.
Indeed, Cole is believed to be one of many players at Liverpool who are deemed to now be surplus to requirements at the club.
The mystifying thing is that nobody has come in with an offer for the player who is quality.
Last season, Harry Rednapp really wanted the guy but lost out to Liverpool’s offer of £90,000 a week wages and the prospect for Joe Cole of playing for a club steeped in a successful history.
Sadly, for Joe and Liverpool, it has not worked out and the man is now one of many players the club is hoping to move on out.
The problem is, nobody seems to want him.
With only 7 days left in the transfer window, offers have, so far, been thin on the ground.
Motormouth QPR boss Neal Warnock has casually said that he would love to take Cole to Lofus Road and that he could afford 40% of his wages.
I treat these remarks with the contempt they deserve, as befits anything Warnock has to say.
It is rumoured that Harry Rednapp is willing to make a bid for the unfortunate Cole, I hope a deal is done with Spurs for our player,
or any other team who is serious about signing him.
Best of luck Joe.
