This article is about 2-3 days late, but as they say, better late then never. And it does not make it any less readable, being a couple of days late.
After the game this thursday night, I had not just lost my voice(because of joy and fear) but also my faith in some players in Liverpool FC. I am not only very disappointed at many of them, I am also a bit ashamed that the world got to see the poor perfomences from some of the players.
Because the game against Sparta, at home, at Anfield, with a massive support, a great atmosphere, a great feeling, was their chance to show us, the supporters and Kenny Dalglish why they deserve to wear that beautiful red shirt millions of us have, hanging in our closets or on the wall, prodly showing of the only team we support.
Because it is Saturday, and most of us are either hung over, still drunk or have lost both their cellphones and keys, a short comment on every player on the pitch is the easiest and most comfortable thing for you to read …
Reina – He did what he had to do. A plus to his enourmse freekicks, to bad no one took adventage of them.
Kelly – The best player on the pitch in the first half. Too bad he had to be replaced. The lad is improving!
Kyrgiakos – Iron man or what? Blood and stiches couldn’t keep him off the pitch. As usual, the dominant one in the air, should probably have had a penalty in connection with a corner kick.
Agger – Did look strong and did some good things with the ball.
Wilson – Originally a central defender, but played as leftback. He is sucure, not very good, but not very bad either. Didin’t do what a leftback is suppose to do, that is, making offensive initiative, but the lad did the best he could.
Kuyt – Saved me, the team, all the ones in Anfield and all supporters in the world. He scored, and that’s the most important thing.
Poulsen – Where shall I begin? Is it even necessary for me to start enumerate every single thing he did wrong on the pitch? I could do a whole article about it. Was not good with the ball, and not without it either. Shame on you.
Leiva – Considering playing with a horrible player like Poulsen, he did a good game. But not more. Expects more from him nowadays.
Cole – He tried. At least he tried. Yes he did not score, but you can not argue with me, when I claim that you did see his potential – his fantastic techinique and speed with the ball. He lacks match tempo, but with that and self-confidence hopefully growing, maybe he can change the fact that he is a total flop.
Meireles – Had some good corner kicks and free kicks, did an okey match.
N’gog – I am ashamed that all the world’s football fans saw the player we choose to play as our top striker. I was speechless after the game and frankly, I hardly know where to start with the criticism. He missed too many shots, fired intp the empty air, took a ball from Cole, which certainly had been a goal, he did awful long shot and if that’s not ehough, he was terrible near the goal too. So, what is up with N’gog? Somebody answer me. My grandmum, who has a wooden leg, is 86 years old and haven’t played football a day in her life, would have scored at least 2 goals with N’gog chances.
Carragher – Felt good when Dalglish put Carra on the pitch, always feels secure when he is on. Did some ghastly passes though.
Skrtel – Didin’t play long enough.
Spearing – The fresh breeze Spearing. He did everything right. He wanted to go forward with the ball and outshone Poulsen. Next match Dalglish should choose Spearing instead of Poulsen, if he is faced with choosing between them.
And was I the only one, just waiting for Pacheco to come in? I just saw the time passing by, and still that scorer namned N’gog was on the pitch. Scorer in my ….
Although, he was not on the pitch, Gerarrds celebration of the goal has earned him a special line in this article. namely the last one. Because he did show us, as many times before, his feelings for the club. That he doesn’t just stand there, clapping his hands like a normal player would do, because instead, his reaction to the goal was similar to most of ours. He is such a good player, but more important, he is such a good human being. For Captain Fantastic, YNWA!
