Friends Of Liverpool

Robbie Keane has been left out of Rafa Benitez’s squad again , casting into fresh doubt his future at his boyhood club again.

It has become obvious in recent times that Keane was not Benitez signing, as I have said here before, Rick Parry wanted the Irishman at the club, while instead Rafa Benitez wanted Gareth Barry at the club at the expense of the gifted Xabi Alonso.

Reports coming out of merseyside suggest that Keane could be sold back to Spurs for fifteen million, five million less than what he cost the club in July.

In a crucial match against Chelsea tomorrow at Anfield, where we must win to keep in touch with Utd, I would have thought we needed his goal scoring ability on the bench, at least, alas Benitez does not see it this way.

After a month of indifferent form in the league in January where we didn’t win a league match, Liverpool desperately need a victory against nearest rivals Chelsea tomorrow.

With Man Utd beating Everton with another dodgy penalty we badly need to close that gap tomorrow.

So it’s time for the Torres-Gerrard partnership to click back into gear.

I predict a 1-0 victory
