4: Pepe Reina to Napoli

Football News

Sometimes change is a good thing. It brings about a new emphasis, clears out the old and ushers in a new and more positive outlook. Sometimes however, it's needless and just plain silly.

Pepe Reina's inexplicable transfer to Napoli on loan at the start of this season falls into the latter category. Sure, the Spanish 'keeper may have been at Anfield for a while, but since when was that grounds to rid yourself of a top talent?

Simon Mingolet started off brightly, but it's a doubt that he'll ever be as comfortable between the sticks as Reina has been/is/will be for years to come. He may only be on loan at the minute but make no mistake; the 31-year-old will not be playing for the Reds again. What a doozy.
