Roeder went to see Holland defeat the Republic 4-0 in Dublin on Wednesday to, once again, check out international Dirk Kuyt. The striker was a second half substitute and didn't score in the match.
But Roeder and Freddy Shepherd were in no position to offer the £10m Liverpool put on the table.
It must have been like two kids with their noses pressed up against the window of a sweet shop, watching Liverpool run off with the goods.
Today Roeder tried to put on a brave face and say Kuyt was not the star of the show, but a youngster from Ajax making his debut put him in the shade. But it all meant nothing. A player he has tracked for months ended up a club with more money to spend, and that is it in a nut-shell.
