5 players Liverpool must sell this summer

2) Christian Poulsen

What was Roy Hodgson doing signing Poulsen, I have no idea! Poulsen must be one of the worst players I have seen wear a Liverpool shirt. When Hodgson became Liverpool manager he was tasked we bringing in some new players and he decided to sign Poulsen from Juventus for a reported £4.5 million fee. That was £4.5 million wasted in my opinion.

Poulsen came with the reputation of being a tough tackling midfielder and was set to take over from Javier Mascherano. Just like Jovanovic, I kept an eye on Poulsen during the World Cup in South Africa where he played all the games for Denmark and he did not do too badly at all.

But put him in a Liverpool shirt and it seemed like he had no idea how to pass the ball or who to pass it to! The fans turned against Poulsen and Hodgson dropped him. King Kenny came in and it seemed like he was going to give Poulsen a chance and Poulsen featured in a couple of games under Dalglish but the King himself saw that Poulsen was not cutting the grade and rather decided to go with Jay Spearing in midfield.

With Gerrard picking up an injury that ruled him out for the season, one may have thought that Poulsen would have been the one to step into his place but Dalglish did not even consider Poulsen as I am sure he knew it would be a disaster fielding the Danish player, so Dalglish rather stuck with Spearing who has gone on to do well.

If Liverpool can get £2 million for Poulsen this summer, I will be happy, in fact even if we were to let him go for free I would not be disappointed. Poulsen simply has to be sold this summer!

    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
