Hes a very average player, but i'm not surprised by the fact people want to ignore that because ther eis a chance he might come here, people did the same with Downing.
When your Mum used to pick you up from school and you'd run out and be like 'Mummy I got 9/10 in the spelling test today', would she go 'phenomenal, son'.Cos if she did she's a stupid fuck.
He doesn't play as a striker for Chelsea. He's been a wide player for the last 6 years.
Nope. Half the games he's played up front, like I said he's a bit like Kuyt and Babel, can play wide but prefer up front.
Half his Chelsea career (moreso in his earlier days) and the entirety of his feyenoord career.
Can't say I can ever remember him leading the line for Chelsea.
If there was even a chance we could sell Downing and bring in Kalou on reasonable wages, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Kalou is better than what we have out wide, bar Bellamy.
Firstly Kalou isn't a winger. Secondly he has absolutely no talent whatsoever bar a bit of pace, Downing has far more talent and he flopped here.
He is a wide forward, which is how Rodgers likes his "wide players" to play. He's easily better than Downing, although that's not really saying much.So if we sold Downing and brought in Kalou, we'd be improving our side, earning money from it too. Ideally though, he'd be brought in to supplement more wide players. We are severely lacking in that position, and he would improve the squad.
He really isn't. Up front yes, out wide he's as bad as Kuyt. In terms of creating chances, Kalou is terrible. Poor technique, can't cross, scores the occasional tap in, that's about it.
I think he be a very useful addition to the squad.Good player
Should be looking to sign first team regulars not decent squad players.
Exactly, as things stand Downing, Bellamy, even maxi are decent squad players, why add another? If suarez plays out wide under rodgers then you need another wide man on the opposite flank. If suarez plays up top on his own then you need two new wide men, you could probably get away with one and persevere with maxi.
Apart from the fact that they're really not.Downing is as ineffective as anyone we've had play out wide.Bellamy can't play more than 2 games on the trot.And Maxi could well be leaving.Add the fact, we have an additional 20 or so games this season means we really don't have enough options.
Well shouldn't we be looking to fill those gaps with players for the first team and not squad players?Quality before quantity mate. Not the other way round. We've already fallen into that trap too many times before and thats why we are were we are. And before you start goin on about how much we have to spend, you dont have a clue and neither do I, so lets just leave it there eh.
Liverpool Football Club is the heartland of football folklore... Liverpool are one of the dynasties of the game... I will fight for my life for the supporters and the people of this city
Sorry I don't know what your saying here in your response. Your saying there's a lack of quality which is what I just described because at the moment we only have decent widemen IMO. We need better.
We don't know what our budget is. If you've only got £20m to spend, you've got to be clever. Picking up very good squad players for 'free' is a smart way of making your transfer budget go further, so that you have money left in the kitty to go and buy one first-team, top class player. Even if you've got all the money in the world, picking up good players on a free is a good strategy. If we sign him on a free now, give him a signing on fee and put him on a sensible contract, we could always sell in two years time for a profit.
He wouldn't be free. His signing on and agents fee's would run into the millions for starters, he'd want a 4-5 year contract and I very much doubt anyone who signs him would be paying him on the cheap either.
