  1. 1. Should we sign him?

Probably should be in the amnesty thread but I think Andy Carroll was a massive talent and that we did see it in flashes.

 

Problem was he was as unprofessional as it gets in the modern game. Lived his life like an 80s footballer when everyone else was looking after themselves. When he was fit though he could be unplayable. Scored an FA Cup semi final winner against the Blues and almost single handedly turned the final our way after being wrongly left out of the starting eleven. He was sensational in the league game with Chelsea few days after too.

 

We should never have signed him, but not because of football reasons. He was exactly what Kenny wanted to play alongside Suarez. But everyone knew he was a pisshead and the rumour at the time was that the injury he had when he signed came as a result of falling off a barstool.

 

If he'd looked after himself he could have been the Harry Kane of his time.

Agree, the price properly fucked with his head as well, I think. 

 

Reckon Drogba is more the template that he could have been, though. Don't think he'd ever have been as creative as Kane, nor quite as profilic.

He seemed to move around a lot and popped up all over the place. On the compilation of his performance at Anfield he was at left back at one point, chasing back to win the ball. Seems to have a really good work rate and isn't 'just' a number nine so that's why I could see it working if we adapt what we do a little.

 

Ultimately though it comes down to what you said. Klopp and the staff know what they're doing so if they want him, great. If they think someone else is a better option, I'm sound with that too.

Yeah I thought his workrate was good against us and he can finish.

Carroll fucked his career up but before he joined us he looked unplayable at times. I think we were looking for a re-run of the Tosh/Keegan partnership but his lack of professionalism should have been picked up by someone.

I think Nunez could be a fantastic player under Jurgen and his coaches, the boy didnt look shabby when he played at Anfield recently.

 

Much as I love Mo and Sadio, one or both will be off soon and sometimes, I think the pair of them lack height and a bit of physical presence in and around the box sometimes when up against big gammuts in the oppos defence.

 

Dont think he's worth the money Benfica are supposedly asking for him but if our Portuguese contacts can work a bit of magic, who knows?

He's very big, very fast, looks to be a good finisher, he's only 22 and gave both Virgil and Konate a very hard time over two legs. 

 

No idea if we're in for him or if it's agent talk but with Mane going, we should he all over him. Seeing as we play 98% of games with teams camped in their own box, it would be great to have a proper target for Trent and Robbo to aim crosses at when we can't play our way through.

Is he as good as Antonio Nuñez?

 

Antonio Nunez' dogged run down the right wing in stoppage time against Chelsea at home in '05, when we were right under it, is one of the greatest moments in the 130-year history of Liverpool Football Club. Pretty much sealed the deal. He'll always be a fucking leg for that in my eyes.

Is he even a realistic signing/target

Joyce mentioned we're interested, but then he said we have a limit on how much we would pay. 

 

I don't think we're signing him.

I was at the game to witness his debut against Arsenal, the famous Neil Mellor winner.

 

Something to tell the grandkids.

That was already one of my favourite Anfield games ever. That was BEFORE I knew it was Tony Nunez's debut. Now it might be my outright favourite.

Always had a feeling he'd go to the mancs, but Newcastle would make sense too. Can't wait to see how they get away with zero penalties for completely ignoring FFP like City did.

The Swiss Ramble guy had a thread on Twitter saying they can spend 600m.

Also, I made eye contact with him and exchanged a fist-pumping roar during the homecoming parade.

That's not Amnesty, it's exactly what it was. 
Big Andy was and is still on his day absolutely World Class. 
 

and if it was for Goal Line technology he would have turned that Final around. 

 

Problem is he will end his playing career and join Razor Ruddock in rolling around in an Engerlund Shirt for Shitty ITV charity documentaries

Does he come with a car alarm? If not, I'm in!

There is an Austrian team named Flyeralarm. True story. They were probably conquered by the mighty Ev in their 1985 conquest of Europe.
