A player's career for your club you....

Look back at with some regret?

Mine is Daniel Sturridge. I was speaking about him to a Pool fan. Before I knew he was Turkey bound, I was hoping Gerrard would get him at Rangers.

My mate “Nah you don’t want him he’s a rotten egg. Bad attitude and only interested in money. His trophy CV at Yous and us looks impressive but what did he really contribute to any of them?"

First heard the money orientated accusation from City fans when he came to Chelsea.

I was genuinely disappointed at the time that a lot of our fans seemed to cut Torres more slack (when getting consistently played) then jumping on Sturridge for not hitting the ground running when he got a rare cameo. Perhaps in hindsight I was wrong?!

I’m told he’s not the type who’ll look back with any regret himself. Would you if you had a career that mirrored his and you had exactly the same attributes?

So I'm guessing De Bryune & Salah are too easy yeah?

I'll go with Lukaku. Boyhood Chelsea fan with a great mentality (when he was young) who just never got his opportunity. Wouldn't go as far as to say regretted the decision to sell him cos Costa's goals won the league that year, but the fact he never got to even score a goal in our colors is regretful. But hey ho, that's life.

Tbh the only right answer from the Chelsea prospective is clearly Robinho. Shirts were printed + the player states 'I'm happy to join Chelsea' (while accidentally holding a City shirt), yet he never played for us?

That's pretty regretful no

Wilshere is up there in recent times. Definitely had the attributes to be a top player, just kept constantly getting injured at the wrong times. Soon as he got his form back he was injured again. Diaby was an even more extreme case of that

Walcott maybe as well. Don’t think he quite had the ability to match his very early hype. But could have had a better career. His early call up to England World Cup squad didn’t help with the hype, totally pointless call up. But like wilshere, he had long injuries as soon as he had periods of good form. For 2 seasons or so he got good numbers for us in terms of goals and assists. But then injuries hit again.

Sturridge is high on the list. Arguably the most talented English number 9 atm...too bad he's made of saw dust both mentally and physically.

Fabio Aurelio is another one. Talent wise he was incredible. Too bad he was also made of clutch pencil lead.

Harry Kewell.

Was so excited when we signed him from Leeds, he was a Liverpool fan and turned down a lot of other clubs to sign for us, took the number 7 shirt and was all set to be the new star. And then the little injuries started, followed by big injuries - he was always seemingly injured or coming back from injury.

The abiding memory I have of him is starting the 2005 CL Final and walking off injured after 20 mins. Summed his Liverpool career up.

Djibril Cisse - So much pace and talent. Injuries ruined him

Momo Sissoko - Looked a monster in midfield. Major eye injury, and he was gone
