I'm not saying Carroll for 35M was good I'm question if Negredo for cheaper would be better, again it boils down to the system the manager wants to play and he has identified the players who he wants in it. So Dc and co have tried to sign the players, should we have walked away from Carroll, Downing and Henderson
TBF, for 35m you could pretty much get any player bar a handful. Negredo is just a name. If Dalglish and co didn't want him, fine; but there is a world out there you know. 35m and the only guy they could find was Carroll? It's either lazy or ignorant. Again, if Carroll was some prodigious, undeniable, talent I could begin to understand it. But before last season we could have gotten him for a few million. He's not been a prodigious talent, ever.
And as I say all that I am cautious - largely because I believe in King Kenny and reckon he'll have it sorted. But the fee will only make sense if the lad goes on to be the top scorer, or one of them, in the world for a few years running. That's a huge ask IMO. Would love to be proven wrong.
Still, I think we could have done ourselves a favour and gotten someone a bit more reliable with more of a track record. Whether you like Carroll I am sure you can agree that there were
alternatives for 35m mate.
