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.
