Redmen TV : Is Joe Cole Good Enough For Liverpool? Posted by Guest Writer July 27, 2012 Following the Toronto and before the Roma game, the lads discuss Joe Cole’s performances, fitness issues, media attention seeking and future at Liverpool FC ahead of the 2012/13… CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE! Share this: Share Twitter 9 responses to “Redmen TV : Is Joe Cole Good Enough For Liverpool?” Only a moron would write an article to enquire if a flop like Joe Cole should play for the Reds. A renowned manager once commented that Cole is a player lacking a football brain. To-date, there is still no sign of Cole having gained any intelligence on the football pitch. Thanx my brother(miles) i totally agree with u….some clueless fans want aqua out and they want j.cole to stay,they both cost us the same,if aqua is unsettled with that wonderful performance then joe cole should be given out to shelfield united for free…..To add to it,joe cole looked like a kindergaten baby among graduates wen he was playing against toronto,every1 on the pitch was better than him including Gulasci Rende ene service bousse liki I hope you boys are wrong because he is costing us a fortune – we wont really know until Suarez returns – we can always hope We have so many midfielders at the club. And I do agree with the Redmen above. For me Cole on his wages is just a no go, we could use that resource to bring in another better younger player. Use his wage sto give to another player that has more of a future with more playing years in him. He has a great attitude around the club and people like him but that alone does not get you a shirt at Liverpool, well it should not anyway. If under FSG we are wanting a fresh, younger, fitter squad who have players who are only going to get better and give back to the club there contract value through years of playing rather then having players at the end of their playing careers. THESE PLAYERS NEED TO BE SOLD, TO BRING IN BETTER YOUNGER, FITTER, QUICKER PLAYERS WITH MORE YEARS TO THERE CONTRACTS, GIVING THE CLUB BETTER ALL ROUND VALUE FOR THE FEES WE PAY, THATS WHAT FSG ARE ON ABOUT BY REDUCING THE WAGE BILL, I MEAN PAYING COLE CLOSE TO 95 K A WEEK IS JUST SHOCKING BUSINESS IS IT NOT! SELL; BRAD JONES, DONI (GK)- none are that good, great guys but thats it. doni on stupid wages too. WILSON,- average at best, he really is bang dreadful ADJORAN,- this guy is way behind many of the other youngers guys at the club, he is very poor to. COLE,- to high wages, cant get fit, to old and a drain on the clubs wages bill. ADAM, – never wanted him here, nothing against the guy, just half a good year at blackpool does not mean your ready for liverpool, no way, to slow, cant run after 60 minutes etc, sell him ECCLESTON, – just look at morgan then look at this chap, he is poor, bad attitude and gives up after 20 minutes, love morgan and is twice the player eccleston is, no room for both. DOWNING – cant stand him, he jumps out of tackles, he is bang average,20 million was for me the worse buy the club have ever made, sell him back to villa or send him to mr oneil up at sunderland, get 8- 10 mill and drive him up there, bring in a younger speedy winger with more about him, he has a piss poor character about him to, hate this player badly. CARROLL – brenden might not want him, but if we are to sell him then just get it done, get it over and done with, id let him gor for 17 mill cash up front, no one is going to pay anything like 20 mill in one payment, not a chance, we should take a hit and move on, 17 mill would be the best we could hope for. Say we get this; 17 mill and his 80 k a week wages gone = carroll 9 mill and his 75 k a week wages gone = downing 5. 5 mill and his wages of 65 k a week gone = adam 1.5 mill and his wages of 25 – 30 k a week gone = wilson release him and get his 90k a week gone = cole say 500,000 for adjoran his wages? gone = adjoran release both Doni & Jones, wages gone = Jones & Doni 500,000 for eclleston and wages gone ? = eccleston Tony silva reported to be gone or sold also? If we can manage this give or take, and add 5 new players then we will be better off. id likel; x1 left back – ALY CISSOKHO x1 striker – ADRIAN LOPEZ x2 winger – WALCOTT & RAMIREZ(HE CAN PLAY WIDE) x1 midfielder – ALLEN Enrique either needs to get focused or he sits it out on the bench, cissokho while not world class, is getting better and just what we need, quick aggressive and has height at left back to, for around 9 mill you will not get better in this role for that! REINA JOHNSON SKRTEL AGGER CISSOKHO GERRARD LUCUS ALLEN RAMIREZ SUAREZ LOPEZ Thinking about it, and you may well call me a dreamer but what say we dont look at a number of bodies, that has been out huge problem with this club, over the years we have brought many of a squad player. I know money is tight or so it seems? but lets say we could ship out the players that didnt even help us last year and maybe some fringe players and promote some youth in the process and bring in these two? sell – Release ; cole, wilson, jones, doni, eccleston, t, silva, aquilani and adam. The buy ;- CAVANI AND RAMIREZ. CAVANI AT 35 MILL RAMIREZ AT 15 MILL = 50 MILL. SELL CARROLL 17 MILL SELL ADAM 5 MILL AQUILANIS WAGES AND COLES WAGES PUT BACK IN DONI JONES AND THE REST BRINGING IN AROUND 2 MILL SO SAY AROUND 24 MILL BROUGHT IN – THATS AROUND 26 MILL SOEND ADD THE THE MONEY SPENT FOR BORINI AND YOU HAVE AROUND A NET SPEND OF AROUND 35- 36 MILL POUNDS THERE ABOUTS, THATS A SUMMER. JUST THINK IF WE COULD PULL THIS OFF? REINA JOHNSON SKRTEL AGGER ENRIQUE GERRARD LUCUS HENDERSON RAMIREZ SUAREZ CAVANI WHATS A SIDE THAT. In an idea world it would be good if we could at least pull off these deals to replace what we have with better quality and then bring in 1 or two other options to add further quality to the all round team – squad. What i mean is, id like to exchange – sell thes eplayers to help bring in what i think are better ones and in turn make the wages also more realistic, adding these players and getting the ones out the door would be a great way of doing our business but only if there are quality. example- sell adam to then buy Joe ALLEN sell downing to then buy GASTON RAMIREZ sell aquilani to free wages, sell joe cole t free wages, if we got say 5.5 mill for adam, & 10 mill for downing. thats around 15mill which is nearly the fee for Gaston Ramirez which is what you call squad depth, using the players that have not done enough, sell them and use the money but bring in better while not spending huge maounts on fresh new players. That means if you can take adam and get 5 mill maybe more put that into the allen deal which he costs 15 mill, then we have this. downing being sold for around 10 mill, then use that for G Ramirez deal, he costs 16 mill pounds then we have him costing around 6 mill. adam = allen for 10 mill downing = g, ramirez for 16 mill To get rid of of adam and downing and bring in borini, allen and ramirez for just over this amount of net spend would be great business – £26 – 27 mill. Why do we have such delusional fans? There is no chance in hell we get many players this window and especially players like Cavani. Napoli have thrown a 75mil price tag on him. Realize we are going through this season with what is here already and maybe one or two cheap additions. Also, if we sell all these players that keep getting thrown about for selling, who will be on the bench? You’d be relying on a starting 11 that would need to stay healthy through a league campaign along with Europa and the cups.
