Official: Liverpool Cast-Off Rickie Lambert Signs For West Brom In £3m Deal

West Brom have completed the signing of Liverpool cast-off Rickie Lambert for the princely sum of £3million.

Lambert, 33, returned to his boyhood club after five incredible years at Southampton last summer but failed to win many people over at Anfield, scoring just two goals in 25 appearances (18 from the bench) while struggling to make any headway up the pecking order.

He has now signed for West Brom on a two-year deal.

Tony Pulis chose the most Tony Pulis-esque way possible to describe Lambert before tying up the transfer this afternoon.

“He didn’t play last year so it’s like bringing a brand new car out of the garage if we did sign him,” the Baggies boss explained.

“Just putting a bit of petrol in it and letting it run.”

Yep, you’ve got yourself a nice brand new second-hand T-reg Vauxhall Vectra there, Tony.

Good little runner but the suspension has fallen on the front wheel, driver’s side.

    I have to disagree. I think this is a fine deal, and a steal for only 3 mil. Lambert excelled at Southampton when he got an extended run at the team. He played a bit part role at Liverpool, so of course he wasn’t going to do well. At West Brom on the other hand, he’ll get a new lease on life.

  2. Jarren says:

    Poor Rickie, he’s trying to look so happy but you can see the dream of playing for his boyhood team is over.

    Hey, at least he had the opportunity. Plus, he’s still a PL player.

    I’m sure he’s not that fussed.

  3. Moxey says:

    And of course, he scores twice a few hours later in a friendly.

    In other news, the branch of Greggs opposite Anfield has had to close.

    Bitter wannabe-footballer journo spouts shite shocker!

    Journo’s – acutely assessed by Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle in their version of Dante’s “Inferno”.
