Joe's career, like many, took a massive spitfire nose dive into the ground when he joined Liverpool after sitting on the bench for Chelsea a few times too often. Afforded a golden opportunity in the cup last night, Joe decided to instead impress everyone with how awful he could be. From The Sun:
“The club have invested an astronomical amount of money on a talented player and Joe had the opportunity.
“He has been back fit a couple of weeks and his opportunities have been limited but you have to see.
“I thought it was difficult for him. It was too slow and it wasn’t what I would expect from a team I tried to set up to be dynamic.You've ruined it Joe! You've ruined it forever! I remember when Joe Cole was going to be the best player ever and Man United wanted him and then he even scored that awesome goal in a world cup from 30 yards and everyone thought he was ace but then again, I also remember when Woolworths was open. I also remember when he jumped out of window to escape being beaten up by Keeley Hazel's boyfriend.
