John Aldridge hasn't minced his words when criticising one of Liverpool's most recent departures.
In his column in the Echo Aldridge was critical of Joe Cole, who recently commented on his time at Liverpool to a Chelsea fanzine.
Joe Cole said that he had never felt the connection with Liverpool and that he had never said we were the biggest club in the country. Only he did - and we saw the video.
Nevertheless Aldridge didn't pull any punches and said:
Liverpool fans treated Cole well and always supported him. We ignored the fact he was pocketing £5million per year and the fact that he was out injured with a twisted sock most weeks. He seemed a likeable lad so we stuck up for him and when he left we wanted to see him do well at West Ham.
So for him to come out with rubbish like that was a real kick in the plums.
Can't argue with that analysis Aldo!
