I am a lifelong Liverpool fan and as I am writing, I am wearing my Robbie Fowler jersey circa 2001. I love the club with all my heart and have supported them through thick and thin for years. Bearing that in mind, Liverpool Football Club are a dismal excuse for a top notch football team.
They are atrocious. With poor organisation, lackluster defending, an inability to move the ball in midfield, little guile and less goalscoring threat, they have less hope of winning the Premier League than Djimi Traore has of winning a second Champions League medal.
The most optimistic analysis would suggest they have, in my view, seven players on the squad who to deserve to wear the jersey (Reina, Carragher, Johnson, Gerrard, Meireles, Kuyt and Torres).
The rest are at best average (Lucas, Agger, Skrtel, Ngog) and at worst sheer, unbridled liabilities (Konchesky, Maxi, Babel, Poulsen, Cole, Jovanovic, etc). The club desperately needs fresh blood and new hope.
The following slideshow is an overview of some of the names of players who have been associated with the club that we would charge, if they were signed, with the duty of lifting this proud club out of the wilderness, and a look at some players that are rumored to be headed out the Anfield exit.
