Friends Of Liverpool

While I normally hate the dreaded ‘International Break’,
for once, I am glad it is upon us.
Liverpool have an injury list as long as your arm and this break of almost two weeks has come at just the right time for us.
Obviously, Fernando Torres is the main concern with that Hernia problem as there seems to be no quick fix with that type of complaint.
Benayoun and Riera both did their hamstrings on Monday night.
It looks like Benayoun will be out for at least a month so it will give Aquilani a chance to show his undoubted talent in a Liverpool shirt.
Glen Johnson also aggravated his calf while Danny Agger has done his back again.
While it was very welcome to see Steven Gerrard back playing and scoring against Birmingham, he too is not fully fit.
I’m sure Rafa himself could do with a beak from the day to day pressures of running the club with all the injuries and the poor run of form we have been in.
So, International Break?
Bring it on.
