Joe Hardy - Welcome to Anfield

Recommended Posts

Liverpool have dipped their toes into the January transfer market for a second time already after moving to secure Brentford youngster Joe Hardy.

 

The 21-year-old, who was previously at Manchester City, has fired in an astonishing 40 goals in 80 matches for the Bees’ second team, including three in five matches so far this season.

 

But despite his prowess in front of goal, the striker has yet to make an appearance for the Bees first team.

 

However, that hasn’t stopped Liverpool taking a chance on the Wirral-born youngster, with Hardy now making the dream move to the European champions for an undisclosed fee.

 

Brentford B boss Neil MacFarlane confirmed the move, telling his club’s website:  “He’s perhaps come to the end of his time with the club in terms of the strategy, and to go to a club the size of Liverpool can only be good for him.

 

“The club are flying at the moment, they’re European champions, and potential Premier League winners, so being in and around that environment can only be good for Joe.

 

“He’s certainly going from an environment here that has prepared him properly.”

 

Hardy becomes the club’s second signing of the transfer window following the addition of Takumi Minamino from Red Bull Salzburg.

 

Jurgen Klopp threw his new signing into the starting line-up in the FA Cup win over Everton and the Japan international lasted 70 minutes before being replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

 

“Super, outstanding. Exactly the player we wanted, exactly the player we wished for,” was Klopp’s verdict on Minamino’s debut.

 

However, BBC pundit Alan Shearer believes he will fit in perfectly to Klopp’s side, if he is afforded the opportunities.

 

“He scored [at Anfield against Liverpool], 24 years of age,” Shearer said on the BBC.

 

“When you look at the price that they’ve paid for him, just over £7m was his release clause, he’ll fit perfectly I think into this Liverpool team – It’s going to be very difficult to get into it.

 

“In terms of where he plays he can play anywhere along that forward line.

 

“He’s already got nine goals this season so what an opportunity for him, starting with today.”

 

Wolves, meanwhile, have stuck a lofty price on the head of one of their star attackers after he was linked with a transfer to Anfield.

I hope he's not related to this fella..

 

 

Hungry Hardy is a competitive eater[1] from Brooklyn, New York, United States. Hardy is a long-standing member of the International Federation of Competitive Eating. He retired from the sport in 2005 to become the IFOCE's commissioner. During the latter half of 2004 Hungry Charles displayed dominance in eating, placing second and third in major events throughout the USA. Hardy has secured victory for six consecutive years in the Civil Service qualifier for the hot dog circuit and he maintains records in sushi, shrimp and cabbage.

Hardy is a legend on the IFOCE circuit and known to fellow eaters as "The Godfather." He is a former Nathan's American Hot Dog Eating Champion (personal best is 23.523 . 5 Nathan's hot dogs and buns in 12 minutes). Hardy won the 2001 Matzo Ball Eating Contest by consuming 15.5 matzo balls in 5 minutes and 25 seconds. He has competed in Japan twice, eating 15 feet of sushi in one sitting. After disappointing performances in Coney Island, skeptics murmured that the elasticity was gone from the stomach of the one-time American Hot Dog Eating Champion. However, Hardy put an end to whispers with his victory at the Hibernation Cup in Alaska, which included recorded-breaking performances in shrimp (4.5 pounds in 12 minutes) and boiled cabbage (six and a half pounds in nine minutes). He appeared as a guest on Beautifulbrian corner in March 2006

Hardy supplanted Ed Krachie in the late 1990s as America's most recognized competitive eater, and is a former member of the Corrections Emergency Response Team

First of all, I'd like to point out that I already hate this cunt with all my being.

 

Secondly, how dare he join us from Brentford.

 

I hated Minamino the most up until now, but "Joe" can fuck off.

It's about time we had some hysterical fanny posts. I like the cut of your jib.

 

Negged.

Seems a bit odd if you look at the discussion on the Brentford forum. Brentford don’t appear to have seen him as a first team prospect. Perhaps he’s been purchased to supplement the U23’s.

Yeah the article on the Echo is similar. Their B team manager says they 'know' not every player will play in their first team and he decided his next challenge was Liverpool's U23s!

 

That said, Im sure our U23 coaches can polish up a rough diamond.

Was on the bench for the 23s at City yesterday afternoon. Had a brief cameo at the end of the game against his former side.
