Friends Of Liverpool

News tonight that Steven Gerrard may need surgery on his troublesome groin injury will be meet with dismay by Liverpool football club and its fans.
Gerrard, after all, got injured playing for England against the Ukraine when England had already qualified for next year’s World Cup so what was he doing playing in that match in the first place?
Its a big blow for the club who face Fulham on Saturday in the League and then a vital match against Lyon in the Champion’s League next week in a game we have to win if we hope to get past the group stages.
Looking back on Wednesday’s match against Arsenal in the Carling Cup, I thought the side Rafa put out did very well, we played at a high tempo, attacked at will and deserved to take the game into extra-time.
The welcome appearance of Aquilani in the second half was pleasing. He showed a lot of nice touches, passed the ball well, had two shots on goal and in 20 minutes showed that he is a the quality player we have been crying out for since Xabi Alonso’s departure.
If Stevie G is going to be missing for a few weeks then Aquilani will get his chance to impress.
