It's time to put Stewart Downing and Joe Cole out of their Liverpool miseries.
Both arrived with much fanfare, only to fail horribly to live up to expectations.
It was Cole who arrived first, coming in July 2010 on a free transfer. Supporters might argue who was the worst of the players Liverpool signed that summer. It's a toss-up between Cole, Christian Poulsen, Milan Jovanovic and Paul Konchesky.
Downing was also part of a horrible summer of signings. Liverpool paid £20 million for the winger in addition to £16 million for Jordan Henderson and £9 million for Charlie Adam.
Now it appears their time at Anfield may be drawing to a close.
Downing has been included in the squad over the past few weeks, clearly playing to keep his spot at Liverpool. The BBC reported that the club has told the winger it will be open to any possible transfer in January.
