Lord of the Kung Fu?



Benny C's Post Match Comments

3 points is 3 points. I'll take it.

As regards Cisse, it's like Shankley said: "Yes Roger Hunt misses a few, but he gets in the right place to miss them". Poor bugger, has been unfortunate. It will come. You must remember that Van Nistelroy wasn't exactly prolific in the early parts of the season scoring 15 of his 25 goals (in his second season in England) in the last 10 games.

If we can get the goal drought out the way early (unlike the past couple of years) that's fine by me...

The bigger question is: What the hell is going on at Spurs???

when did they learn to play football?

This week is going to be hell for me. One of the guys I work with wont shut up about Tottenham being the best team in the World. EVER......I may have to kill him.

I think I need to be a bit more modest with my scoreline predictions. Atleast until Cisse sorts himself out.

To say he was disappointing is an understatement. All three that he missed were absolute sitters. Actually, make that four. Here's a player that we expect to score no less than 20 goals this season. He has electric pace, and he's shown glimpses of what he can do in the CL qualifying games this year. Cisse, afterall, was the top scorer in the French league before he joined Liverpool. Now I know the French league might not exactly make a great example - as I was pointing out to a french guy I watched the game with. 'English football, no skill!!! just physical" he goes. 'French football is for girls mate, in England you get to see real men play and play hard.'

Talking about playing hard, Sissoko was amazing last night. Watching him it looks like he's already settled in the premiership style of play and definately looks set to play an extremely important role in Liverpool's future.

Credit to Sunderland, they made us fight till the last minute and even though its 3 points in the bag I'm sure most Reds supporters will be wondering why didn't we cruise through it with a few more goals.

Gerrard is almost certainly
out of Liverpool's CL clash with CSK Sofia on Tuesday with a calf injury. Rafa isn't willing to take any chances on his star captain and I'm sure with a 3-1 lead going into the game, it should be an easy win. It would be interesting to see how the team fares without Gerrard.

He's also gonna miss the Super Cup Final in Moscow against CSK Moscow and we might get to see Carradona lift a trophy as Captain!!

Back to Cisse, I think its already been established that his first touch is crap. He shows glimpses of excellent control and speed at times so there is hope. It could be the horrific injury suffered last year has left a.. sort of.. a mental scar maybe? His tackles seem half-hearted. And whats up with the flying kicks!!?? How many goals and goal attempts have we seen from the Lord of the Manor while airborne since the start of the season?

I believe I can fly!

Half time. We started well but are letting them into it a bit more. We have to come out fast in the second half. Take the momentum away. I can see Cisse and Riise possibly getting in there though....

I agree with Dan. We need 3 goals (or more - oh ho.)but I think this will be closer a late goal. 2-0.

Nice to see both Gerrard and Sissoko getting meaty with the tackles though......Try not to get sent off lads.

whats up with Cisse!! It's getting a bit worrying now. He's NOT supposed to miss sitters like that. Surely it can't be last seasons horrific injury playing on his mind and resulting in half hearted attempts?!

Yeah, Ben is right. A win is a win, 1'll take the 3 points too.

We didn't win comfortably & clear chances were missed by Cisse, but i believe we will only get better. Warnock, Sissoko had a good game once again. The introduction of Riise was good, but maybe a lil' too late to make an impact.
