Not for the first time this season, for one reason or another, Joe Cole was not named in the 18-man Liverpool match squad for a Premier League fixture.

Last time around, when Liverpool hosted Stoke City, Cole made it off the bench in the 67th minute to replace Suso and make his first appearance at Anfield in over a year.

A sad fall from grace from one of England’s erstwhile most exciting talents.

Here are five reasons Liverpool and Joe Cole must part ways as soon as possible—and, as usual, feel free to have your say in the comments below.
