It is never a great situation to be in when you wish for some of our teams players to be sold as early as yesterday but there is currently a lot of dead wood in the Liverpool squad right now who we need to get rid off this summer as they have simply not been good enough or added any value to the team. The longer we continue to hold onto these players the more we are going to be wasting on them in terms of wages and also they will possibly be preventing the emergence of young talent to fill into their positions.

I have highlighted 5 players that I feel must be sold this summer as they have simply not done it for us this season.

1) Milan Jovanovic

The Serbian international arrived on a free transfer at the start of the season after being signed by Rafa Benitez. We all looked forward to seeing him as he was meant to provide the width down the left that the team needed. I kept a close eye on him during the World Cup in South Africa last year when he was playing for Serbia and he looked pretty good.

He got a couple of games in at the start of the season under Roy Hodgson by Jovanovic never really shone at all. Then Dalglish came in and even under Dalglish the Serbian international does not look like an international at all. There is no doubting that Jovanovic has some talent but he has just not delivered in a Liverpool shirt. Surely if he was good enough King Kenny would have seen this and given him a chance.

Considering Liverpool signed Jovanovic for free we can actually benefit by selling him for around £2 million. Jovanovic came out recently and said that he wished Rafa was still in-charge at Liverpool and that he played under him. Maybe he is right and he would have played well under Rafa but that is not the case so I am sorry Milan but he have to go. Getting rid of Jovanovic will also give the likes of Pacheco and Sterling an opportunity to play in the first team next season.

    If your analysis of the marketability of Soto is correct, we should sign him up on contract for another 1-2 years then loan him out to newly promoted teams so that they can better defend against our competing teams but cannot use Soto against us.

  3. Dubai_Red says:

    You would get rid of a young striker and an experienced defender, yet would keep Joe Cole?

    Soto should stay as his experience would be invaluable to the young players. Doesnt mean that they cannot get more opportunity.

    Would keep Ngog as he is still young. I agree that he shopuldnt be relied upon as the back up striker, but doesnt unless we are going to get 2 back-up strikers, I would keep.

    Bring back Aqualani and Insua, get another striker, centre back and at least one pacey wqinger and we are all set to go.

    5 players Liverpool should sell? More like 8 !

    THe 8 players are :

    Christian Poulsen
    Milan Jovanovic
    Paul Konchesky
    Philipp Degen
    Joe Cole
    Sotirios Krgiakos
    Alberto Aquilani
    Emiliano Insua

    And if possible, I’d even sell Brad Jones and get Matej Delac instead.

  5. Dennis says:

    There are 12 players who are on clubs books who need tobe shipped out and replaced by 10 Quality, class, Hungry players:

    Outs: B Jones GK Degan RB Krygiakos CB Koncheskey LB Insua LB Aurelio LB (Class,Great player but too Injury Prone/inconsistant and he is 31 now, 32 in September)
    Poulsen DM/CM El Zhar RW/LW Jovanovic RW/LW/FD J Cole AM/RW/LW and D Ngog FD.

    And lastly Aquilani: who keeps claiming he does not want to come back to our beloved club Or to England,he should be sold to the highest bidder for no less than £16M.

    Then The club should sell 12 and bring in 10 players:

    These 6 players should be brought in to make squad/Club harder,tougher,disciplined,dominative and harder to break down:

    1:A GK: W Hennessey Of Wolves
    2/3:TWO CB’S: G Cahill Of Bolton and Either S Kjaer Of Wolfsburg, Rolando Of Porto Or Sakho Of PSG.
    4/5:Two LB’S: A Cissokho Of Lyon and J Enrique Of Newcastle.
    6:A DM: Momo Sissoko Of Juventus, M’Villa Of Rennes, Moussa Sissoko Of Toulouse Or B Matuidi Of St Etienne, One of these players needs to be brought to club in summer.

    Then 4 players are needed to bring speed,pace,trickery, skill,quality,class,cutting edge to the attack:

    1: RW: Jesus Navas Of Seville, A Young Of A Villa,E Hazard Of Lille, A Turan Of Galatassary, P Hernandez Or J Mata Of Valencia Or A Sanchez Of Udinesse: One of these wingers should be brought to play on Right wing.

    2: LW: C Nzogbia Of Wigan, R Drenthe Of Real Madrid Or D Capel Of Seville, One of these should be brought tp Play on Left wing as Out and Out Left Footed Left winger.

    3:AM: Valbuena Of Marseille, C Eriksen Of Ajax Or Willian Of Shakhtar Donesk, One Of these players should be brought to be clubs creative flair in Iniesta,Nasri,Modric Mould.

    4:FD: L Podolski Of FC KOLN/Cologne, L Lopez Of Lyon, B Krcic Of Barcelona, Pato Of A.C Milan, Hulk Of Porto, K Benzema Of R Madrid, A Negredo Of Seville, Osvaldo Of Espanyol Or Lavezzi Of Napoli, One of these strikers should be brought to club to Complement and Compete With Carroll,Kuyt and Suarez.

    they r not good to wear the shirt..
    myb we can let insua play again..he is very very young n juz need to b nurture by the king..
    let aquilani come to us..he is good, i mean he is a better option than poulsen n jovanovic..
    myb we can try have a go for lennon or perotti o johnson o downing..they r good winger..quality..
    as for ngog we have pacheco oready n we must give him a chance nxt season..

    Hmmm, 5 players liverpool must sell? lol, i don’t see Maxi, Kuyt etc, its the same old, look, we as fans would like LFC is be full of world class players but hey, this is not CM 2011, Players like Maxi and Kuyt have been given chances and they did it in a fantastic way, the same would probably happen to the other 5 guys if given the right time or opportunity, fans would probably have lots of liverpool shirts with Maxi at the back by now.
    We’ll just let King Kenny and co. do their transfer jobs this summer, if its their time, then so be with it. Current and past players had time to wear that shirt with the liverbird crest and they did it with pride. In my book all you guys are the best and i will not stop supporting you. YNWA
