Many Liverpool fans want Paul Konchesky to be sold by the club this summer. Ever since he joined Liverpool from Fulham he never looked like he is worthy of wearing the Liverpool shirt. Roy Hodgson signed him when he took over as Liverpool manager last summer as we needed a left-back.

If ever there was a ‘Worst Liverpool signing ever’ award, I am sure it would go to Konchesky. He was so bad that when Dalglish took over from Hodgson, Kenny did not even have a look at Konchesky and instead shipped him off on loan to Nottingham Forest.

As his loan ended he had to return back to Liverpool but it seems now that he will not be a Liverpool player for much longer as Sven-Goran Eriksson wants to sign the left-back at Leicester City for a reported £1.5million.

The Telegraph is reporting that Konchesky may actually be headed to Sweden tonight for a medical as the Leicester team are on a pre-season tour in the Scandinavian country.

    Absolute waste of money. Bloody Woy.

  2. Subway says:

    I always thought Hodgson was the worst signing ever, if we are just talking about players then my vote goes to Poulsen.

  3. HH says:

    Worse defender ever bought? Do me a favour, have you forgotten Josemi Josemi Rey so bad they named him twice, or D”r”ossena, Jan Kromkamp, Gabriel Paletta?

    Very short memory

    I think it is because of hodgson’s decision that anger the liverpool fans of shifting out insua and getting konchesky which make no sense at all,At least insua is still learning to improve while konchesky is no longer a newbies and the worst thing that frustrated me is his decision making in all field and dare he always mention about his wealth of experience over the years,what a crap.

    Hope his mum takes him to Sweden on her broom.

    hodgson last summer must have cost the club more than all of Benny’s signings who at least turned a profit out of most of them (see tomkinstimes for his financial nous).

    Excuse him for Cole, it seemed a good signing, but other than Raul the rest of them? He must have run his eye over them.
    They got mega contracts and we paid significant money for people at the ends of their careers – at least when benny bought in 3rd or 4th choices, they were free or £1m or so.

    Hodgson also gave Fulham two of our youth squad in the Konchesky deal.
    Purslow was also an idiot. the 2 of them together, route 1 down the table and back to the bank manager.

    @HH: I agree with u, but if I were asked to pick my worst signing of the past 10 years(irrespective of d fee),I’ll also go for Poulsen. seeing him in action made me wonder if we ever scouted him. I think it is physically impossible for him to pass the ball anywhere other than sideways or back to the keeper. Forgive my if u dont like it, but I assume this is what happened after Masch told Woy he’ll be leavin…
    WOY: ‘Sammy’, I need an experienced DM to replace Masch’.
    SAMMY:’Ok, I’ll see what I can do’.(walks away)
    WOY: Sam!!
    SAMMY: (stops)’yep’?
    WOY: ‘he must be cheap’. ‘very cheap’!!
    SAM: ‘I’ll keep dat in mind’ boss’.(leaves)
    (Sam goes to his friends house with his Laptop). ‘Hey Brad’ can u help me compute a list of all ‘OLD’ (being his own understanding of ‘experienced’)DMs who play in the top clubs in Italy, France, Holland n Portugal.
    BRAD: ‘Sure thing pal’. ‘I’ll get it done within the next 45mins’.
    (1 hour later, Sammy Lee returns to find that Brad has worked out about 18 players. Using his own ‘brilliance’, he narrows it down to 8.he then goes to Woy).
    WOY: ‘good work SAM!’ ‘now lets see who’s the best fit for English Football’.
    (while scrollin down the list the first time, Woy suddenly stops …and yells… ‘Dats our guy!!!’)
    SAM (confused) asks ‘how did u make up us mind so easily?’
    WOY (feelin good about himself) says ‘His name sounds like an English player’

    But seriously, unlike Jova, Konch, Joe, N’gog? etc, Am yet to see one thing…’1 freakin thing’ Paulsen is good(or even decent) at.
    He is d perfect example of a passenger. We’re lucky we didnt give him 90k wages like d rest of his pals.

    Finally some news in the transfer market that does not include us overpaying for British talent.. oh wait.. we did that with him already.. well.. him on the way out is great news anyway.. next up.. Josephine Cole.. get out!!!

  10. Brian Shapiro says:

    Definitely worst signing ever…give us a shout if you need help with the airfare!

  11. Dan says:

    Let him go 4 any price

  12. M. says:

    This man made 3 starts for England, shows the true standard of English football.

  13. Mr. Chopper says:

    He got shipped out because the fans hated him so much. It was after his mum shot off her mouth that there was no way he was going to stay. At least Poulson showed a bit of promise in one game showing that he could, theoretically, be a Soto-type of signing once he settled in. Then he was gash the next time he played.

    Wasn’t Insua on his way out before Hodge even arrived?

  14. Gerrardious says:

    with d way we’re stroking ‘our own players’, am sure Brad Jones will be glad he never got to play. lol
