Where is Joe Cole?

After a bit of searching I managed to track down his whereabouts to Liverpool's bench and apparently he won't even be there for much longer.  The always accurate The Sun says:

JOE COLE will be dumped by Liverpool in the summer.

The former England playmaker, 29, has struggled to make an impact at Anfield since signing on a free from Chelsea last July.
Kop flop Cole has started just eight league games this season and now the Reds are ready to cut their losses on the £100,000-a-week star.
A Liverpool insider said: "It's tough on Joe because he is a great kid. But things just haven't worked out for him.

 I remember when Joe Cole had the world at his feet - he was a champ legend, played in that position just behind the strikers where he could control a game and he was really young with loads of time to get even better.  Then all of a sudden he was 27 and he hadn't actually done anything except score a really good goal for England in a world cup or euro championship or something.  Have I been asleep?  He has won 3 Premiership titles and a couple of FA Cups, but I get the feeling he was just sort of in the squad for those and didn't really have too much of an impact.  Did he though?  He might have done?  Steven Gerrard thinks he's 'better than messi' so I just don't really know what's going on.  Where are my shoes?  WHAT IS MY NAME?!?!?!
