The future of Joe Cole at Liverpool is still not clear, the midfielder has continually been linked with a move away from the club this summer following his poor debut season. Cole arrived with a lot of hype last summer when he joined Liverpool from Chelsea on a free transfer. A lot was expected from him but ever since he picked up a red card in his opening match against Arsenal, things just seemed to go downhill for him.

Now that Dalglish is incharge and has started reshaping Liverpool into the kind of team that he wants, it is thought that Joe Cole is not needed anymore. Reports today are suggesting that Cole may leave Liverpool this summer and join QPR on a season long loan. It is also being said that Cole has put his Merseyside house up for sale already in anticipation of him moving back to London.

Loaning Joe Cole out does not make much sense to me. Cole is close to 30-years-old and I doubt we would be able to resell him for much. Usually players sent out on loan to other clubs are young and have potential to do well when they come back to their club after gaining experience and game time at other clubs. Added to that, Liverpool may still have to pay part of Joe Cole’s £100,000-a-week salary. We want to get rid of Cole mainly for the reason that his high wage does not justify his contribution to the team.

With Liverpool saying that we are set to get rid of some players this summer, Joe Cole may quickly be exiting Anfield. Do you think it is a good idea to loan Cole out if we can not find a buyer for him? Or just keep him and give him another chance this coming season?

    keep him,he needs to prove something

  2. rob says:

    Loaning him might be the only option left as no club wants to buy him.

    At least you do not have to disburse the full 90k yourself but part of it. It’s 100% sure that he’ll not be playing at all with all the other options we already have.

    Hence with these savings on the payroll, we will be able to accommodate a central defender. Imagine what will happen if Skrtel, Agger and Carra are all out. No top 4.

  3. rob says:

    or 100k whatever his salary is

  4. Albert says:

    No point loaning him out as if it’s not to a top side we will still be paying most of his wages! Joe Cole should take a pay cut or a pay as you play deal until he proves his worth if he doesn’t then let him go! Come on cole be a decent man and offer to take a pay cut or somat!

    I thought he hadn’t bought a house yet? That was one of the reasons the media were suggesting he was going to be sold in January… But I understand it’s been a few months since then.

    @John: Keep him and he will prove that it is a waste of time and money.

  8. Sammy says:

    Pls let him go, we said thank you for the little work u have done for LFC…. Thanks you JO

    He’s rubbish and should be released on a free – he’s Chelsea and on a sabotage mission !!

    Hurry up and sign Cahill and Enrique before someone else does.

  10. Dan says:

    I thought it was reported he was willing take a wage cut a few months ago

    See ya!?!
    I will give him a piggy bank all the way down the motorway. Will also chuck in pack of Superkings for him.
    Wasted all the money we have paid him so far.
    He is not interrested in football anymore and has not been for about 3 years now.
    Mourinho saw that in him and limited him to sub appearances during his last season/s at Chelski.
    Question is would you rather the club pay him 50 k or 100 k?

    No one wants to take him and his salary. If someone would Liverpool would not have to loan him.
