Liverpool are looking to bring back Jay Spearing to play for the U23's and whilst having a part coaching role with the kids as he looks to take his badges.

He has his badges done is what I read. Battled hardened Pro from the lower leagues to show the youngsters that it's not all glitz and glimmer in the football world. Also knows the club and the area. Good move for me.

{Ed001's Note - I just hope the club remember how shabbily they treated him when Bolton hit financial problems and they blocked his career for the rest of the season by refusing to let Bolton off with a payment of just £50k.}

Maybe they do Ed001 and this is part making up for it. Apparently he's going to be the u18's coach.

{Ed001's Note - I hope so, I know a lot has changed at the club since then, but he still deserves a proper apology at least, which he never got at the time.}

The 60k a week Kenny put him on likely helped, or was that Flanners?

I wouldn't let nobody off with 50k either, football has been a buisness for 20 years. no room for sentiment.

It’s not about letting off Bolton, but doing right by the player, which we did not do. And 50k really is small fry to a club like ours, so it’s not particularly good behavior.

Joking aside o remembered feeling really embarrassed by the whole saga. I don't know the ins and outs but Bolton needed a player, a local boy needed to play. Just let them get on with it.

Bolton were in bad shape financially and I think Spearing had played a certain amount of games for them. If he had played anymore they would have had to pay £50 grand to Liverpool. Small change to a club like Liverpool, sad that they just didn't write it off and let Spearing continue his career.
