With Paul Konchesky having left Liverpool now, more ‘dead wood’ still has to go. Next up should be Christian Poulsen. Even though he started for Liverpool today in China and even managed to get onto the scoresheet, that will not be enough to get him to stay at Liverpool for the coming season. Just like Konchesky, Poulsen has not been good enough for Liverpool. For us to be challenging for the Top 4 a beyond, we need to get rid of these below average players. I would much rather have a Spearing, Shelvey or Coady coming through the ranks and getting game time ahead of Poulsen. And thankfully Dalglish is in charge now and he will give these youngsters more chances ahead of the likes of Poulsen.
There are suggestions that FC Copenhagen are ready to make an offer for Poulsen. If I had it my way, I would even give Poulsen away for free but it is understood that FC Copenhagen may be ready to offer £2.5million for the midfielder. I am sure Poulsen would relish the chance of playing for his old club again rather than sitting on the bench for Liverpool. Poulsen leaving Liverpool would be beneficial to all parties involved.
