Part of me thinks we should have tried to get him but the other half wonders how much he'd figure and how much of a difference he could make. He has some great games but can go rather quiet at times. Though, I suppose, most players are like that.
I don't mind Hodgson but I predicted he'd go for Cole. Due to Hodgson's past.. he likes to sign the obvious players and big-team cast offs.
I worry L'pool have strengthened themselves to get back into the top 4 with this signing plus hanging on to Torres and Gerrard. But if Utd could manage to get a strong central midfielder who can score but also protect the back four, then I wont be worried. Not that I expect Utd to buy anyone :-(
Had Fergie signed Joe Cole on a free, then you fickle Mancwhinger USA plastics titheads would have been saying how brilliant he is, you'd have no doubt been crowing about how you'd got one over Chelsea by signing him, and how it's already the signing of the season etc
