I need to/have to find this article I had read about some of the Liverpool transfers in recent years (not this) and regards to Cole.. The financial impact he alone had on the club was absolutely staggering, and will make people's eyes pop out, especially when critical of buying 10-12M players now, rather than the 40M Cavani's of the world..
I will never be so happy to see the backside of him, and from news over here, he's still making it very difficult for us, demanding several million in payment to accept a move away since nobody will give him the wages he wants (WHU/QPR)
Stateside is suggesting Tom Ince has discussed personal terms, but the clubs are still squabbling over 2M to hash it out.. I really like and want him.
It was said that Gameiro of PSG was the plan if Sturridge didn't pan out, but with doubts over Ince, they're still talking loan. He's a very fast, pacey striker who can play wide.
Sad rumors that Coates may go on loan, perhaps to be made a sale at some point, with a French defender said.. Mirin I think..
If memory serves me right, I am sure the daily telegraph had something on the financials at the club, have a look in their archives. With regards to cole, we should tell him if he doesn't go, he doesn't need to report to the club in any capacity and he's not permitted to train with anyone else. Then we'll see how m h he wants to play football. The money we've spooed into the toilet makes me shudder!

Good call... This was exactly the piece I had read, and all I could say when seeing the figure was "WOW".. 20M wage packet.. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/picturegalleries/9650676/Expensive-failures-where-Liverpool-axe-could-fall.html
Now for everyone who's either ignored, or not wanted to bother with understanding the wages, and things revolving around FFP, which both impact the purchasing of players, that's fine, don't bother, but just read that number again, 20M in wages for Joe Cole, and ask how in the world John Henry must be feeling when he pays that every week for his time owning the club..
Just to put that in context. Mesut Ozil makes 90K for Fail Madrid, and Cole earns more, while not being able to polish Ozil's right boot, let alone left..
