Didn't work out but good luck in Stuttgart.
I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager.

not the worst player to play for us but good to get rid- one of those players who was just a pointless signing- never had proved himself anywhere before us so no idea why we signed him. i wouldn't want to wish him luck as he's probably been on 30k for the last 2 years and he's done nothing to earn it. good ridance.

Good luck to him, getting rid of all these non-starters will hopefully mean that some of the up and coming young players may get a chance in the cup games.

I'm glad I came across this thread - otherwise I would have gone the whole year not noticing he was gone (much as I went roughly a year after his signing not noticing he was here)...  Better luck to him elsewhere...

wish he could've gotten sold, but at least he's off the wage bill (hopefully).  wasn't terrible going forward/when he played on the wing and seemed to really try to emulate johnson... but it wasn't to be.  good luck to him.

A few people suggested that he'd sit on his arse happy to get his wages like Bogarde. He hasn't done that, so well done to him for that.

And for smiling a lot.

Not really sure what else good can be said. Good luck to him. He ran around a fair bit... well, when going in one direction at least.

Nice bloke, not really good enough for Liverpool but far and away from being as bad as some people make out. Shame the injuries stopped him from ever settling into playing and showing us what he could really do.

ask carra what he thought of him!

It would be nice if Carra could reach the standards that he expects of other people before screaming at them...

Best of luck to him, not the greatest but we took a chance on a free and it didn't work out. Never once heard of him moaning though, unlike some.

It was a while ago but the worst player i remember us signing who got to play quite a few games was that American president Jimmy Carter, now he was real crap!

Plus we paid for him (500k was it), and he was signed by Kenny.

Back to Degen, he is actually far better than most of you give credit for, especially offensively. I can only assume that some of the posters here are either just repeating what they heard on the radio, or they are only interested in extremes of opinion (worst player ever? what the fuck are you on?).

Injuries are his main problem, and it is questionable whether he is good enough overall even for backup, but you are kidding yourselves if you haven't seen worse.

Would've much rather we sold him, I hate all these loan deals that just delay the inevitable.

One of my friends whose a Stuttgart supporter told me that they are getting in Degen who will most likely replace Serdar Tasci. Arsenal are interested in him and I think we should make a bid. He's young and can play RB and CB and he likes Liverpool too. But then again, we have Martin Kelly..

Well, he's not gone just yet and could show up in training camp next summer.  Good attacking, but so-so defending.  We've already got a healthier version in Johnson.

Good luck at Stuttgart though.

So that now makes Kelly and Carra the backups for Johnson?
