|Liverpool can be a real drag.....
With the growing speculation that Liverpool are preparing to swoop for two key members of the current Hammers squad - ace defender Winston Reid and on-loan Barcelona midfielder Alex Song - we at VERYWESTHAM have taken some time out to examine what happens to players who make the trip to Anfield and the effect it has on their careers...
Actually, we just had to think up a list of players who have signed for Liverpool in the post Dalglish era! .....arriving on the crest of a wave....only to find themselves labelled as flops by the unforgiving and demanding scouse footie public. Who knows what it is - the expectation, the water, the incredibly vibrant nitelife (?!?) or just the whingy scouse accents? Either way, moving to Anfield has been a real career-killer for so many decent players!
|Ridiculous - and they make you wear sh*t kits
and then there's the Hammers who have regretted going to Liverpool...Cole, Konchesky even that ultimate Hammers legend Julian Dicks found he was unappreciated and underperforming at the reds...Hmmmm.
Why not just ask current teammate Stewart Downing - written off by Liverpool and now he's one of the best midfielders in the Premier league!
Stay where you are lads.....you can be the spine of the team that occupies the Olympic stadium!
