- Do you wonder if I am amazed at the salary Glen Johnson is taking home per week that is £139,000... I think surely every one of us should. That would make him among the top tiers players in Anfield that received such a hefty amount.
- The sum must make him the best paid full back in the world - even after Chelsea defender Ashley Cole agreed a new £120,000-a-week deal to stay at Stamford Bridge. Even Manchester City, who have spent an incredible £118 million on players this summer, will pay latest signing Joleon Lescott only a reported £94,000 a week.
- The one important question that belies the whole deal between Liverpool Football Club and Glen is that : does he merit that amount? He did scored one goal but I must say, he is yet to show his real value for the club. I don't want to be bothered with the news reports which mainly insinuated that LFC paid such a high salary simply to beat Chelsea for Glen's signature. That would be a lousy excuse to do such a business.
- We the fans, wouldn't be that pissed-off if the club pay such amount for a proven striker or effective midfielder. Post-Villa debacle, I surely don't need this kind of news. I hope Glen can prove his overprice salary in the Bolton game. It's not an option. It's a must.
