We are in trouble. We have a bit of an injury-crisis going into tomorrow’s game against Sunderland.
As I reported on Wednesday, Steven Gerrard stayed with the England squad even though he had a groin problem and he even tried to play in a practice match and in doing so, he aggravated the injury even further, madness!
Rafa managed to be remarkedly restrained about the incident saying only “he would have been fit had he been with us all week.”
I am sure the Manager must be seething with anger about the whole thing, why did Steven not return to Anfield once he knew he had the problem?
England had already qualified for the World Cup so it wasn’t exactly a make or break game, strange goings on I have to say.
Meanwhile, Fernando Torres has returned from International duty for Spain with an injury for the fifth time. this is getting ridiculous.
Again, Spain had already qualified for South Africa so to get injured in a meaningless match is just crazy.
So now we have to do without two of our best players for a very tough match tomorrow against Steve Bruce and his team. He has the knack of upsetting Liverpool as he did when managing Birmingham and Wigan, he seems to know how to get at Rafa’s team and cause us plenty of problems.
With Mascherano, Lucas and Insua only arriving back today from International duty, God knows what team the manager will be able to put out.
I would settle for a 1-0 win right now.
What doyou think?
