"With the way we started the game, I am baffled as to how we lost. "I was very pleased with the opening period and for long spells we were good. However, our decision making towards the end was poor and we became desperate at the end."
Every time they lose it's some sort of cosmic injustice.
This is the type of story I usually don't give a flying fvck about, but I've not seen it mentioned. He doesn't want to be a squad player at Liverpool - "It simply came down to the fact that the idea of becoming a squad player didn't excite me or motivate me." So he goes to the MLS, where, yes, he will probably play as often as he wants. But why would that motivate you more than playing, say, 70% games at Liverpool?
I mean, the money angle is obvious, but not one article I've read has wondered why he hasn't moved to Europe. Surely there's a whole range of good clubs that would take him and consider him an important player? Just seems like he's getting off very lightly for what is an obvious money-spinner.
