GARETH ROBERTS was joined by Tony Barrett, Peter Hooton and Mike Girling for an And Could He Play show with a difference.
Instead of the usual format of discussing a Liverpool legend, a player unsung by The Kop and an Anfield cult hero, the panel instead discuss three men that excited fans when they first pulled on the red shirt but ultimately disappointed in short-lived careers on Merseyside.
All three arrived with decent enough pedigree, all three played up front and all three scored goals. So why did it all go wrong once the trio had a Liverbird upon their chests?
In a free clip from the show, Tony, Gareth and Peter talk about a player who still holds the record for Liverpool’s most expensive signing, how the deal happened and the reasons why it never worked out.

Is there a list of all the players that have been done on these? I don’t always listen, but regarding the request at the end, I’m sure there’s a few that could be suggested, given a list of who’s already been done.
Hi mate, yeah go here to see the list. Bear in mind though that we need to get in guests who have seen the players play! http://imgur.com/tgbiN9U
Enjoyable as ever. Couple of ideas that should appeal to the older listeners:
Frank McGarvey and…
A spin off series – And He Should Have Played/And Could He Have Played?
Dani Alves and… bear with me….it’s worth the wait….
Frank Worthington. Frankie fucking Worthington. It’s worth it for the story alone. It involves ‘the pox’, a holiday in Spain, a Swedish mother and a daughter and a failed medical.
Not a bad shout that, Paul. Cheers mate.
The Morientes song should be recycled for Dan Sturridge.
