The Singaporean Liverpool Never Managed To Sign
- Aug 5, 2008
I think what we do not want is a repeat of Aquilani. Talented but we all knew how it all turns out for him. Like I said, every single signing is a mixture of maybes and ifs and no one can ever predict whether a signing will make it or not. But for every signing, we also need to mitigate risks, like what we did with Aquilani, we decided to go ahead and sign him despite his injury history. Maybe Ben Arfa will not turn out like that but so far there is no indication that he is truly over his injuries.DeathOrGlory said:I believe you can't keep scraping your way past transfers with the excuse of "ifs" and "maybes".
We've missed out on too much in the past. I say we go for him. If he gets injured a lot, so be it. We took a risk. If he stays uninjured, he could be very, very good for us.
We've scraped so much off the wage bill, we should easily be able to afford him.
