The Singaporean Liverpool Never Managed To Sign
- Aug 5, 2008
He is not bad. Maybe can be even labelled as above average. But seriously if we want to go to Europe, he is not the kind we should be targetting as a first choice CB to partner Agger! Not good enough seriously.REDSkins said:I don't think Williams is as bad of a defender as some of our fanbase make him out to be, but I would consider 8m sterling for him to be a bit of a fleecing.
Williams is quite good against the big target men, he is a strong brute himself and his clearance to the back of RVPs dome is pretty much how he reacts when he's clearing danger. Intense.
He's not particularly great in the air, though, aerial duels are decent but not an improvement on Skrtel. Not sure he'd help us much with defending set pieces and he's probably worse than Skrtel for attacking set pieces.
If he snuck him in here when he bought Allen, I could see it happening, but I wonder if BR can convince the bean counters to buy yet another former player. And one arguably at the peak of his valuation. He's just too expensive as a 3rd choice CB and not an improvement on Skrtel in enough areas to justify that switch.
Much cheaper just to give Skrtel some crystal meth before games.
Edit: maybe mix with the meth with PCP for "REAL ULTIMATE POWER" as bas rutten would say
