Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool got their first win of the pre-season against Asian side, Singapore.
The Reds scored five times in an emphatic victory with goals by Voronin just before half-time, then Viera scored well followed by two for prolific youngster Kristan Nemeth sandwiched by a Fernando Torres tap-in.
It was a poor enough game throughout with the Singaporeans competing for every ball, defending deeply and not willing to open the game up.
The introduction of Dirk Kuyt midway through the second half energised Liverpool however and he had a hand in laying on the goals for Nemeth and Torres and the Dutchman was my man of the match.
Xabi Alonso came on for the last 13 minutes and he began where he left off last season, spaying the ball around to good effect.
When asked about his future, manager Rafa Benitez said ‘I don’t know, it is up to him to decide but clearly we want him to stay as he is a very good player for us’.
So come on Xabi, forget the fat cats at Real Madrid and stay with us at Liverpool.
