Friends Of Liverpool

Rafa Benitez today revealed that he originally bought Robbie Keane to be the linkman between Gareth Barry and Fernando Torres.
But when he failed to sign Barry, Robbie Keane was quickly sold “as collateral damage”.
That clears that one up then.
I thought Keane was sold because Benitez didn’t fancy him as a player.

Meanwhile, Xabi Alonso has admitted that he misses Liverpool but that he is happy at life back in Spain: “Its logical I miss Liverpool I had five happy years there, it was an unforgettable experience and I’ll always have the club in my heart.”
We badly miss you too Xabi, shame you wanted to leave.
Steven Gerrard has today said that he is very disappointed that the team have been on such a poor run since he has been out injured saying that he feels very frustrated watching injured from the sidelines as the team has been on such a bad run.
Good to know he will be back on Saturday to face Man City.
Finally, good luck to Ireland tonight in their play-off against France, lets hope they do enough to qualify for the World Cup next year.
