Tempted to make this a sticky. Maybe we should also keep track of how much these players were sold for.

Why did we not get Mourinho or Rafa earlier?

Why?

Selling for huge fee's would suggest we didn't want to get rid but were forced and so became a selling club. You could have then had a nice moan about our selling club status and the inability to hang on to our top players.

As it is you've moaned anyway.

Ho-hum.

I think some of the 'ratings' above are quite debatable..

I for one think Camara did an excellent job in his time with Liverpool.. he left for personal clashes with GH.. same reason Fowler and Litti left.. but if u review the 99-00 season.. u'd see he was one of our most consistent and brilliant players.. filled in a sort of John Barnes role.. and came up with some spectacular goals..

On the other hand, I would say Smicer is a flop.. he's been here for quite a while and came with a reputation that suggests we've got a major player on our hands, only for him to fade away and turn into another average player.. to be fair, he has been injury plagued. same can be said about Kirkland though :)

I think GH's signings had their good and bad times.. I see the list above is what GH has spent.. not who he signed.. as Markus Babbell and Jari Litmanen arrived on free transfers.. both were very valuable.. although Litti's history with us is quite short.

I don't see a point from checking how much they were sold for.. MOST big clubs buy for big (cuz the smaller clubs take advantage that they have money) while sell for cheap (as the other clubs know we want to get rid of the player).. Roma bought Davids for God knows how much and he went to Inter for nothing.. Arsenal got Wiltord for £13m.. and he left on a free.. Chelsea bought Geremi for £6.7m (I think) and agreed to sell him to Boro for £3m (the player rejected moving).. In a way, bigger clubs see it as cutting their costs (wages, bad attitude affecting other players).. In a word, I believe it's irrelevent (bought vs. sold)

Not sure if I told you this before, but I think you suck at reading my mind. :rollani:
