After Saturday’s capitulation to lowly Bolton at the Reebok 3-1, Kenny Dalglish openly criticised his players for their attitude and performance in the defeat, even claiming that heads will roll after that display.
Well Kenny, it was an abject display by the team, a team you largely assembled yourself.
SIGNINGS PLAYER FROM COST RATING
1 CARROLL NEWCASTLE 35 MILLION FAILURE
2 ADAM BLACKPOOL 8 MILLION FAILURE
3 HENDERSON SUNDERLAND 20 MILLION FAILURE
4 DOWNING ASTON VILLA 20 MILLION FAILURE
5 ENRIQUE NEWCASTLE 6 MILLION SUCCESS
6 BELLAMY MAN CITY FREE SUCCESS
With the exception of Craig Bellamy in attack & Enrique at full-back, £90 million has been wasted on very average players who would not get into any of the current top four teams in the Premier League.
(Luis Suarez was brought in by the previous regime).
We were over-ran in midfield without the injured Lucas as Charlie Adam couldn’t make a legal tackle to save his own backside, Henderson had one shot on goal and zero tackles.
Andy Carroll did provide the assist for Bellamy’s goal but that was about all the big geordie did all day.
Stuart Downing has been a total flop since arriving from Aston Villa in the Summer, an England international, he has been dismal at Liverpool, God knows why, he has the ability.
So Kenny, go out and buy a quality striker and a proper midfielder before our Season is over by February, please.
