And so Paul Konchesky, after watching Liverpool defeat West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, has got his wish.

The one-time international has got his wish to follow Roy Hodgson to Anfield signing a four year deal.

In return Fulham will be welcoming a little cash (I hope) and two Liverpool youngsters in the shape of Lauri Dalle Valle and Alex Kacaniklic.

Not sure what to make of all this!

Anyone care to help?

Have we come out of it better or have we been given two works in progress that might just be discribed as risky?

  • We’ve signed Salcido and are supposedly after Royston Drenthe, so I’m not worried. Of our regular back four over the past few seasons, he was our weakest defender and only a marginal attacker. Not overly concerned, but time will tell.

  • dont think some liverpool fans are happy loseing to good young players all in all not a bad deal for fulham me thinks

  • er vanilla what planet you on? glen johnson current england international …..scores goals….He was over priced if you ask me, but still a far better player than konch. We got more than we bought him for plus potentially 2 good youngsters thrown in.

  • I just been reading a few comments and the liverpool supporters and they are not happy at the deal especially 4 million cash plus two promising players. They dont feel konch is an improvement!!!!!Dalla Valle (great name) is meant to be a top notch striker in the making! well done hughes. The other player is a left sided midfield/defender. Happy days….

  • Yeh. Completely agree. They way overpaid for Glen Johnson. Double-digit transfer fees for any fullback (with a few exceptions – Cole, Ramos, Maicon and other world-beaters) is questionable, but he is a better player than Konchesky, so £3m is a perfectly reasonable fee. Besides, I believe Konchesky was approaching the end of his contract anyway, so it made sense to cash in, now.

  • Regarding Liverpool fans being unhappy, all I can say is that at present Liverpool find themselves with same financial straits as the rest of us, so I’m sure Roy is just looking for someone he can trust, even if he’s not a top ten left back.
