Liverpool legend rates all of our summer signings out of ten – Adam Lallana gets two points more than Lazar Markovic

Adam Lallana – 7/10

THOMMO SAYS: “I’m a great liker of Adam Lallana, so I’ll give him a seven. The problem Adam has was that every time he got a good run in the side he went and picked up an injury, so he’s been unfortunate in that sense. But he’s got great ability and hopefully next year he can stay free of injury and get himself a solid run in the first team.”

WE SAY: A bit generous this – bar the last month of the season he’s had a difficult time of it on Merseyside. For the most part, his performances paled in comparison to those he put in for Southampton – where he scored ten goals last year, four more than this season. He only managed 27 Premier League appearances due to a succession of minor injuries and as a result he’s going to be under a lot of pressure to produce from the off next season.

Rickie Lambert – 6/10

THOMMO SAYS: “Rickie hasn’t had enough chances to actually shine, so you can’t really say he was good or bad. I think he only had six or seven starts in the Premier League – that’s not enough to get going – but I’ll give him a six for his efforts when he was on the field.”

WE SAY: Again, perhaps a mark more than we’d have given him – but we can appreciate Thommo’s loyalty. Lambert has only made a handful of starts and has mostly been restricted to coming on as an impact substitute. It would have been interesting to see how his performance levels would have differed if he’d been given a more prominent role, while he also appeared to miss the presence of long-time teammate Adam Lallana alongside him.
