I think Henderson deserves to be in the conversation... 

 

He's been a Liverpool player for most of the decade, longer than anybody else currently with us. We've got the most mileage out of his signing. 

 

He's the only one who will remember what it was like during the dark times under Hodgson.

 

Before this summer was the only current player to have actually won a medal at the club.

 

Took massive amounts of stick from the media and our own fans, Rogers tried to fuck him off to Fulham, but he had the determination to stick with us to prove he belonged here.

 

And of course from his humble beginnings grew to become our European Cup winning captain. 

So...

 

Worst or best?

I assume you mean one of our best?

I see the arguments for Benteke and Carroll, but at least they tried on the pitch, and in their own limited way they occasionally had some effect on games.

Balotelli however was as predictable as night following day.  I remember laughing when I heard the rumours because I knew that no Liverpool manager in his right mind would even contemplate Balotelli.  Then the total shock that we had parted with £16 million to sign the stupid cunt.  He had all the talent in the world, just absolutely fuck all between the ears.  We got important goals plus money back at least out of Carroll and Benteke, Balotelli slunk out the door for fuck all.  We couldn't even give the cunt away.

However many other players mentioned here that just weren't the calibre that this club requires, Balotelli was the one that had fans shaking their head in disbelief.  He even under achieved on zero expectations, the total fucking twat.

He was also probably the worst fit. So much of the good stuff we'd done in the previous years was due to Suarez's workrate and speed of thought. To replace him with someone who is lazy and mentally 10 minutes behind the play was not a recipe for success.

Sturridge until Summer 2014 looked like one of of the best signings.

 

I wouldn't necessarily agree, but I'm sure there's a few here who would count the post-2014 wage-sapping permacrock among the worst.

One of the worst bits of business was selling Dirk Kuyt for £1m

Yep. Still had at least a year in him here.

Luis Alberto was an awful sale. Surely we could have given him games after 13/14 but we just sent him on loan, sold him for peanuts and now he's quite good/worth a lot of money.

Best for the money VVD

Best for the resale Coutinho

Best for value Robertson.

 

Worst for the money Aqualani

Worst for the resale Markovic

Worst for value Carroll

Carroll scored the winner against Everton in an FA Cup semi at Wembley and also scored in the final (with goal-line technology he may have scored two and been the hero). He wasn't a good signing by any means, but in terms of value he gave us a lot more than the dozens of other flops I could name.

Opinions eh Dave. He was unlucky in the final. Not meant to be.

Not having Suso and Alberto. Italian league is where they both belong.

Suso was given a decent go and wanted to leave anyway. There's not much more that could have been done with him.

 

But Alberto could have at least been given a chance. We were terrible the year after our title challenge, it's not like we had many obviously better players than him.

We had quite a lot of slow average players like him

    • We've broken pep, the fucking fraud. Not sure why he mentions Manchester United in this, is he working on his escape plan? 

      https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/50707809?isBumped=0&postFreq=0&isEmpty=0&isProfane=0&tooLong=0&charCount=0&isAwaitingProcessPreMod=0&isSubmitted=1&filter=none&initial_page_size=10&postId=137534454#comment_137534454     Pep Guardiola says Manchester City "might not be able to compete" with the best teams in Europe and have to "accept that reality". His side lost 2-1 to local rivals Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday and trail leaders Liverpool by 14 points. Last season, City won the domestic treble and retained the league title but have lost four games in 2019-20. "We have to improve and accept it and move forward," said Guardiola."[Manchester] United have the quality to defend and the quality to attack on the counter-attack and you have to accept that," he added. "That is the level we face against Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus. They are the teams we have to face and the reality is maybe we are not able now to compete with them. "Maybe we need to live that as a club to improve, to accept the reality now and improve." Manchester City won the first of their back-to-back league titles in 2017-18 with a record-breaking 100 points but were beaten in the Champions League quarter-finals by Liverpool. They reached the same stage of the European competition last season before being knocked out by runners-up Tottenham but did go on to become the first English team to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup in the same campaign.

        Despite struggling in the league this season, City are already through to the knockout stages of the Champions League ahead of Wednesday's final group game against Dinamo Zagreb. They play Oxford United of League One in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals later this month and are bidding to win that competition for a third successive season. They have also been given a kind draw against League Two Port Vale for the start of their FA Cup defence in January. "The reality is we are 14 points behind for the mistakes we have done, for the quality of our opponents and especially, as well, the things we cannot control. That is the reality but we have to continue," Guardiola said. "We are at the beginning of December and we have other competitions to play in and other games to fight and improve on. "We are not thinking of winning the Champions League, I am not thinking about how many points we need or how many points they have to drop. We are trying to win games, to win the next one."

    • Always been his biggest fan and, in my opinion, people who doubt him at the match are subhuman scum.   What? Fuck off?
    • Let's call him Baby Keita. He can get fully converted when he helps win the League.
