Ed001 - slightly different question but thought I'd be interesting to see your point of view. What Liverpool signing were you must disappointed about, as in they didn't really get a fair crack at the team or never fulfilled their full potentials? My top 3 would have to;


Adam Morgan

And I know I'm going to get stick for this but I wish Mad Mario made it at Anfield aha.

{Ed001's Note - Litmanen. He is the one that I was most excited about but was just never given a chance.}

Agree1 Disagree0

I want to mention Robbie Keane. Why was he bought and sold with in half a campaign. Were there underlying issues?

{Ed001's Note - yes. Off field he was not conducting himself the way he should have and so was quickly moved on.}

10 Jul 2017 05:12:01
For me, Harry Kewell, as an Aussie and Liverpool supporter.

10 Jul 2017 05:33:34
I always thought that Markovic would be a great addition. Shame he fizzles out. Though I do remember getting my hopes up when he produced that match winning performance against Sunderland.
Andy Carroll too. Such hype and then nothing.

10 Jul 2017 07:16:35
I still think ilori could of been one hell of a player. Technical ability of agger an still holds the 60m sprint record at Lisbon ( beating ronaldo and Nani)
Mismanagement and coaching, as well as actually never giving him a chance, has ruined his top flight career.

10 Jul 2017 07:32:42
Rb-I wouldn't class Morgan or Suso as signings because they came through the youth set up (although they signed Suso as a pup) .
Morgan was one I never got, garnered a lot of hype but I never got it, never stood out for me.
The player I think maybe should have been given a little longer at the club in recent times are:

But in general they haven't done much after leaving and the correct decision was probably made.

10 Jul 2017 07:33:27
Definitely Suso, was gutted when we flogged him.

10 Jul 2017 08:10:34
Benny-I wouldn't say mismanagement has ruined his top flight career, if he's good enough he will make it and has plenty of time. Pace although a good attribute to have is not the be all and end all and 2 managers at Liverpool thought he wasn't good enough.

10 Jul 2017 08:14:39
Sinama Pongolle for me.

10 Jul 2017 08:20:39
Babbel was class untill he became unwell. One of the best free signings ever. Pacheco. what happened there? Mikel San jose should of been given longer. turned into a quality player.

10 Jul 2017 08:13:00
Been thinking about this since I posted, Markovich is a good shout. Rodgers didn't give him the chance he deserved which I never really understood and then playing him out of position baffled me. I fear Grujic will be ' one of them ' hopefully we see more of Grujic, he looks promising to me.

How is Markovich off the pitch, is there a problem?

{Ed025's Note - for me teabag he is a very skillful player but like studge before him suffers from tin man syndrome...lack of heart mate..

10 Jul 2017 08:27:03
Cheers ed25, appreciated mate.

{Ed025's Note - no problem mate..

10 Jul 2017 09:18:11
Ben Elf-I think San Jose is an after the event one, I didn't really remember hearing much fuss when he left. Suso on the other hand always looked capable of doing well although I wouldn't have him in my Liverpool starting line up now, it's frustrating we never made more of him, even just to have gotten a decent fee for him.
I know we got some sort of minor fee for him but does anyone know if there was a sell on clause?

10 Jul 2017 09:46:01
I'd go with Fabio Borini. Not that he didn't get a chance, but I think he was not played in the right position, and the insistence of english coaches on moving him to the wing ruined his potential as a poacher in the middle.

10 Jul 2017 10:37:10
Drigan, Borini didn't even command a regular starting place in a poor relegated Sunderland side last season. I just think maybe he's not that good mate!

10 Jul 2017 10:54:34
I remember being really excited that we had signed diouf and diao after seeing them play for their country, what a disaster that turned out to be.
Carrol has got to be one of the biggest disapointments though, looked like he was going to be a proper good player until he signed for us, deep down I thought it wouldn't work out but refused to admit it to myself haha.

10 Jul 2017 10:58:33
Harry Kewell for me, I couldn't believe it when we were signing him as I thought he was one of the best players in the country and expected him to be off to Utd or Arsenal, but what a disappointment he turned out to be.

10 Jul 2017 11:23:49
Not that he had a bad career with us, but I really loved Babel and thought he would progress to the very top. Also was excited at Morientes and Joe Cole signings and still think Milner should play in midfield!

10 Jul 2017 11:08:32
Benteke. Thought he would be a huge signing.

10 Jul 2017 11:54:06
Aquillani for me.

10 Jul 2017 12:03:18
How has Joe Cole not been mentioned yet? Sent off on his debut and it didn't really get much better.

{Ed001's Note - I thought everyone knew he was crap before he signed and so he lived up to his potential?}

10 Jul 2017 12:20:31
Also, we haven't mentioned Steven Gerrard 2.0. The Man, The Myth and The Legend that is Jordan Rossiter aha.

10 Jul 2017 12:09:04
Ed001. He could open a tin of beans with a football.

10 Jul 2017 12:38:15
what happened to Teixeria?

How is he doing now?

10 Jul 2017 13:22:24
Sebastian Coates- came with the hype following south american tournament- never looked like he would make it.

10 Jul 2017 13:30:16
Shelvey anyone? Or our wee Joe. Though it was the fans that didn't give him a chance.
Where are all the Ibe superfans that cried out about us selling last year. "He's better than sterling" hah.

10 Jul 2017 16:54:15
Cobra666 there was fuss from me.

10 Jul 2017 21:03:14
Jari Litmanen for me, loved his way of playing. Morientes was also a huge disappointment. There have been a few over the years.
