Cole signs with Liverpool

19 Jul

Former Chelsea man Joe Cole has signed a four year deal with Liverpool, supposedly worth around £90,000 a week (That’s about $137,000 for the Yanks out there).

Cole will replace Yossi Benayoun, who went to Chelsea earlier this summer. I think it could be a good signing (albeit a pricey one), but he’s battled injury issues and heaven knows, Liverpool does not need another player going through the injured/healthy cycle 50 times a season.  It is also a slight concern that he signed with Liverpool supposedly because they offered him the most $$$.  People that play for money are not nearly as committed in my opinion.

On the other hand, the signing shows that new manager Roy Hodgson is ready to do what it takes to get Liverpool back into the top four. With top players like Fernandon Torres, Steven Gerrard and Javier Mascherano all subject to transfer rumours, bringing in a strong player that can contribute right away is huge. Cole can be dangerous up the left or in the middle and will also be able to offer service to Torres up front.

What do you think of Cole’s signing?
