It’s ‘who needs to go’ week here in the Football Transfer Tavern and this evening we are concentrating on Liverpool with more names than most clubs being shouted all around the bar all the way from the fruit machine to the snooker tables inside!
The sheer fact of the matter is that too many of the Reds’ players went missing last term, unable to put even half of the fight up that they did a season earlier when the Merseyside club came ever so close to lifting a first Premier League title in its modern format.
Out of Brendan Rodgers’ many summer purchases, it was only really Emre Can and possibly Alberto Moreno who came out of 2014/15 with any credit with Adam Lallana’s form having dipped, Lazar Markovic failing to showcase his flair, Mario Balotelli not scoring goals and Rickie Lambert looking like he won a competition to play for his boyhood side!
With Danny Ings and James Milner already in the bag for next season, Rodgers will have to continue to sign his next incomings very carefully with the fans more sceptical than ever before in his Anfield tenure.
Nevertheless, with Liverpool boasting a bigger squad than most, while you can imagine that Rodgers is in the hunt for a right back, another midfielder and a striker, he’ll also need to let quite a few players go.
With that decision ultimately down to the Northern Irishman, our resident Reds fans are willing to help him out a bit and have listed five Liverpool players who they;d rather not see performing at Anfield next term.
