Have Liverpool made a terrible mistake in signing Nick Barmby from bitter rivals Everton? I could understand if he was signed for about £4 million and to a club of less stature of Liverpool, such as a club on the rise like Sunderland. He has never hit his best form since leaving Spurs to join Boro and I believe he will struggle again at the Reds. He is a good player but not one who would improve Liverpool's squad like Babbel and Diomede. This follows the awful signing of Gary Mc Allister from Coventry who is well past it. If someone has played for the blue of Everton they surely must never play for the mighty Reds.
