Christian Poulsen: The Danish midfielder never panned out at Anfield under the man who signed him, Roy Hodgson, or the man who got stuck with him, Kenny Dalglish.
But best of luck at French side Evian. A
Alberto Aquilani: His Liverpool story really could've been different. Such a talented player, but he's not Kenny's cup of tea, so at the end of the day, it's better that he left.
Unfortunately, it's only a loan move to AC Milan, so we may have to deal with this saga next summer as well. B
Dani Pacheco: A young stud of a striker who just isn't getting a chance at Liverpool, but he deserves to be playing. It's unfortunate it won't be at Liverpool though.
Perhaps his loan stint in Spain will be very fruitful, and he can push his way into the Liverpool first-team picture or earn himself a good fee. B
David N'Gog: The Frenchman was a serviceable backup striker for the Reds for several years, but he was never going to be a starter. Maybe Bolton can bring out his best.
At £4 million, I'd say that's some good dealing by Liverpool. A
Stephen Darby, Martin Hansen and Peter Gulasci: Loan moves to Rochdale, Bradford City and Hull City respectively. What else were they going to do? A
Raul Meireles: Very late and very surprising. For the second straight deadline day, Chelsea nabbed a Liverpool man right at the death.
The midfielder didn't think he'd got enough playing time this season with the many new faces in midfield, and he'd be promised a pay-raise last summer by the previous ownership—which he wasn't going to get.
Without getting a like-for-like player in return, it hurts a bit, but Liverpool have plenty of midfielders. And Liverpool got about £12 million for him, so that's a plus. B-
Joe Cole: Loan move to Lille. An absolute Godsend.
