Neill's combative style of play in the FA Premier League has attracted controversy over the years. He broke the leg of Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher in the fifth game of the 2003-04 season with a tackle at Ewood Park. Carragher was sidelined for 6 months and the incident sparked a war of words between Gérard Houllier and Graeme Souness after Neill and his manager did not apologise for 48 hours.

Johan Neeskens, who became assistant to Barcelona manager Frank Rijkard for the 2006-07 season, said that Neill "could play for any of the best clubs".[2] On August 4, 2006 he announced he would not sign a new four-year contract for Blackburn Rovers. The player's agent, Peter Harrison, said "He has enjoyed his time there (Blackburn), he loves the club and the fans, he just feels it is time for a change."[3] On August 30, Liverpool reportedly made a £2 million bid for Neill; however, this bid was rejected by Blackburn. The club wanted Stephen Warnock in part exchange for Neill; however Liverpool were not prepared to let the left-back go [4].

However in January 2007 Neill turned his back on a confirmed bid from Liverpool in favour of West Ham United. The deal was confirmed on January 20 and was formally completed on January 22 following the successful transfer of Stephen Warnock from Liverpool to Blackburn. Neill was accused of his primary motivating factor being money, but he later refuted these claims, stating the move was for purely footballing reasons [7]. Neill later alleged to the media that Liverpool hadn't made him feel truly wanted, and that he had not even spoken to manager Rafael Benitez. However, media reports suggested that Neill had signed for West Ham on a basic salary of £60,000 ($140,000) per week, double what Liverpool were prepared to offer, and that Neill might have spoken to Benitez [8].

Lucas Neill - Blackburn Rovers Player Profile from Carling Football (535 words)
Lucas Neill agreed a contract extension to stay at the club until the summer of 2007 in the summer of 2003.
Neill started the 2003/04 season with a bang when he caused a national outrage, following a tackle on Jamie Carragher in the 3-1 defeat to Liverpool in September, which broke the Liverpool star's leg.
Neill was sent off again a few weeks later, again against Liverpool when the two teams met at Anfield in the Carling Cup, and was consequently forced to sit on the sidelines for another two-game suspension.
