    The Echo have run a story of our top 10 worst signings since 2010 https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/spo...dy-carroll-paul-konchesky-liverpools-16864984

    Some crackers in here but nothing too controversial.

    I'd also throw in Aspas, all the more galling that he's now playing well again and we also paid £7mill for ilori!

    What about further back? Jermaine pennant would be a "favourite" never felt like a Liverpool player at all. 6.7m in 06/07

    Some of those i disagree with - Joe Cole wasn't a bad buy but he came into a shite team at a bad time but was in my mind an ambitious transfer to an extent. Also not so sure that Borini was a bad buy either as he was brimming with potential.

    This list needs Benteke, Robbie Keane & Aquilani in it for sure.

    Joe Cole was a horrible buy, and the only reason we bought him was because he wasn't a buy at all, and because people might be tricked to think it had some ambition behind it.  What a horrible time that was.

    In a world of Koncheskys, Adams, Poulsons, Voronins, Jovanovics etc it was a different level - but he is a player that excels with other great players around him and therefore was doomed to fail in our shite team of that time.

    Andy Carroll is number one by any conceivable metric, how Kenny convinced the club to part with £35m for him I will never know.

    Benteke is surely high on there. Everyone knew it didn't make sense and was not long after we got shut of Carroll and those days either

    That horrible cunt Diouf should be right at the top of every list like this.

    Diouf was well before 2010 though

    & with Benteke we got near enough all our money back plus he did score that spectacular overhead against Utd

    Rickie Lambert cost next to nothing and barely played so doesn't really count.

    I know he's pre-2010 but Robbie Keane was one of the worst in recent times. Might have won the title that year.

    I successfully wiped Lambert and Benteke from my memory. Thanks for reminding me.

    Borini was far worst than Benteke....far worst.

    Did well to get our money back most what we paid for both players tbh.

    No mentions for Balotelli?

    As for Borini, he's possibly the least talented player I've ever seen play for us.

    OK, 2010 onwards

    Can't argue with anyone on that list, but Balotelli should be higher (lower?) because I hated that cunt even before he played for us.
    And yeah, Andy Carroll was a disaster. And fucking Markovic.

    Aquilani would have been well up there, but he was 2009 I think.

    I don't think Aquilani was that bad, actually thought he looked good before his injuries.
