Joe Cole to Liverpool now odds-on with the bookies
July 5, 2010
Something is definitely afoot here, as the price of Joe Cole to join Liverpool has plunged from 8/1 to 4/5 this morning!
Skybet are usually ahead of the curve with transfers and they were the first of the major bookies to react today.
New Liverpool boss, Roy Hodgson, has stated openly he wants experienced British players to form his new Liverpool team, and at almost 3o years of age, and plenty of Champions League, Premiership and International experience in the locker for Cole, he would seem an ideal fit for Hodgson.
The new man at the helm in Merseyside also likes to play an expansive, pass and move game, which would again suit Cole down to the ground.
I never fancied our chances of landing Cole, and to be honest, I would not be disappointed to miss out on him, he was useless at the World Cup, he gave the ball away 99% of the time he had it.
Chelski are getting rid for a reason, and money is not the reason. Those injuries have maybe ravaged him of his very best form, the odd flash of brilliance may be the best one can hope from him.
I think he’s finished at the top-level.
The Scousers are free to have him.
