Friends Of Liverpool

After today’s bizarre defeat to Fulham which defies description, I have to take a look at the Liverpool’s injury list to explain things away.
We were missing Danny Agger, Martin Skrtel, Alberto Aquilani and David Ngog to a virus, not the swine-flu, but a virus nonetheless.
We were also missing Captain Steven Gerrard to a groin injury, Glen Johnson to a calf injury and Fernando Torres wasn’t fully fit.
That is a massive amount of injured players for any club to cope with.
Sadly, the team that was put out wasn’t able to cope with Roy Hodson’s Fulham,
Voronin has a poor first touch and never got into the game.
Lucas had a goodish first half but faded in the second as Fulham scented victory.
Babel came on as a sub for Torres but again failed to impress.
Rafa even resorted to bringing on young reserve Nathan Ecclestone, but it was a game too soon for the youngster.
If Kristian Nemeth wasn’t out on loan in Greece then he would be the ideal young man to bring on, he scores goals for fun.
So there you go, a massive injury-list, meant a depleted team and a poor defeat.
Leave a vote or a comment if you wish, cheers.
