... liverpool finished 11th in the first season, which prompted a mass exodus of big name players .... VERY nearly got gerrard - he told the media that a move to spurs would be tempting - but liverpool turned down my ¬£30m offer
So went in for Babel instead and landed him for ¬£24m!!
So my tip is - if a top 4 club is radically under performing, have your cheque book ready to round up the golden rats fleeing the sinking ship!!
