Liverpool have been signing some of the best players in Europe over the last few years, with Jurgen Klopp’s men turning back into a Premier League force in recent seasons.
The main thing that has changed in that time has been the Reds’ transfer policy. They’ve moved away from signing unproven talents, and they’re instead focusing on pure quality. That’s evidenced by the arrival of players like Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah.
Many of the players that moved to Anfield prior to the arrival of Jurgen Klopp fell well short of expectations, and that’s certainly true of Andy Carroll. Signed from Newcastle as a replacement for Fernando Torres, it’s fair to say that his career hasn’t gone as planned – and even his move to West Ham, where he is today, has gone down as a failure.

Naturally, Carroll remains a big talking point amongst Liverpool fans online, and lots of supporters have taken to Twitter to discuss what could have been if he was able to keep up his form. See below:
Imagine Carroll teaming up with VVD on a corner…. My words, the opponent’s keeper must be sweating like crazy
