It's clear Rodgers doesn't rate the lad, he's handled the situation poorly from the start. Saying AC was available before even giving him a chance, then a week later saying he'd be crazy to let him leave
It's been said for weeks and even Martin Tyler on commentary knows the score, saying he only wants to leave for Newcastle. Think West Ham gave up the fight when AC said no. Pardew now saying its down the the boards. Liverpool can either sell to us, or keep an unhappy and unwanted player on high wages for however long.
Hopefully we can bring him in this week. We need a striker, someone who can bully teams. A very different player to Ba/Cisse.
