That's a legitimate mistake, but you can tack it onto all the others that got away.
My issue is with people who make it out that it is because of us, and our bid, that we didn't buy him. If we had bid 50 million then he would be our player, which is utter nonsense.
If you really want to blame someone, then look no further than Gerrard, who convinced him to stay one more year, and get the move he actually wanted, Barcelona. And the squeeky scouser was spot on.
