big part of the reason lucas didn't sign for liverpool is because he didn't think that he would get any game time.

Absolutely Correct. I can't immagine that Blackburn or West Ham were offering too much more money than Liverpool.

With Johnson at the RS, Neill would never get a game unless it was the Carling 'nobody cares' cup. Neill isn't the second coming, he just is a barely average player who is committed and dirty on occasion. But is far more superior than Hibbert!

He hasn't just turned Liverpool down though, it was about 3 years ago, and I think Johnson was probably still on Chelsea's books then.

I've never particularly liked Neill because I've always thought he was quite dirty, but he is a decent player, so on a free I'm happy that it's a good signing.

He was rubbish...Slower than Rio Ferdinand on a bad day. Plus injury problems.

He really wasn't that bad, I remember his debut being pretty good actually. 

 

Surpassed my expectations of him. 

 

Was shocked when he moved on so quickly in honesty.

When we signed him his career at the top level was coming to an end. We got a transfer fee for him which was good. Other than that I think he was just a squad filler because of the lack of funds available.
