This full-back should be shown the door after yet another inept display!
Andrea Dossena is nothing if not entertaining. His second half run-out last night was packed full of incident in a game that Liverpool edged to gain qualification to the knockout stages, but this Italian needs to be shown the door before the New Year because he simply is not up to scratch in my opinion.
His one positive act in the game was diving headlong to get in the way of a shot that Pepe would probably have comfortably held, but other than that, the former Udinese man was ludicrously out of place against the Marseille attackers who managed to get past him with ease. Practically every pass he attempted failed to end up at his colleagues’ feet, and I am sure that had he played the entire match, the French side would have had a field day.
He arrived at Anfield in the summer as a player that many thought highly of in Serie A, but he has done nothing to suggest he has what it takes to play for such a huge club, and should really be offloaded as soon as possible. Yesterday, you could see how he was trying his hardest to impress, and his determination and effort could not be faulted. However, his inability to defend was frankly laughable.
Do Liverpool fans feel that Dossena is just not good enough, or should the new signing be given more time to prove his many doubters wrong?
