From links to Mario Gotze, Alex Pato and Neven Subotic – to Steven Caulker the very next day.
Transfer rumours are mighty frustrating things, it has to be said.
And Liverpool fans have largely reacted angrily to news that the QPR owned centre-back is close to a loan move to Anfield, with Southampton prepared to cut his temporary deal short at St. Mary’s.
In fairness, Caulker is young, will have low wages – and it’s a loan deal – meaning there really is no risk involved.
Still, it’s got the internet talking.
Where do you stand, Reds?
Caulker really? Much rather have Kolo Toure.

It’s not even as if Caulker got torn apart against Liverpool. He stood idle and let everybody else get torn apart. Which is worse.
