They say good things come to those that wait, that is certainly the case with Liverpool and Charlie Adam. But in the transfer market that is not always the case. If you wait for too long, the player you want may be taken by someone else. Liverpool have been after Adam since the January transfer window but Blackpool refused to sell him then but now they had very little choice as they got relegated and there was no way a player shortlisted for last seasons PFA Player of the Season award could play in the Championship.

Kenny Dalglish is delighted that he got Charlie Adam and one only has to look at the smile that was on Kenny’s face when he drove Adam to Melwood for his medical.

Dalglish told Liverpoolfc.tv: “We’re delighted. Our patience has paid off. We tried to sign Charlie in January – Blackpool wanted to keep him, which is understandable because they were trying to maintain their status in the Premier League.

“Our interest never went away. Both the club and Charlie have been patient, and then Blackpool’s circumstances changed because they were relegated.

“We’re looking forward to Charlie being a success here. He made a huge contribution to Blackpool’s team last year and we’re looking forward to him making the same contribution here.

“We know what he’s got and that’s why he was such a success last year in the Premier League.”
