Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool could only manage a 0-0 draw at Ewood park against battling Blackburn Rovers today.
In a dour first half, neither side had a clear shot on goal as defence was the order of the day for both teams.
Liverpool started the second half much the brighter and attacked the home side with much more drive and purpose.
The Reds best chance fell to sub David Ngog who crashed a shot against the crossbar from a great run and cross from Glen Johnson, with Paul Robinson well beaten.
The biggest talking point after the game was why Aquilani was left on the bench yet again?
Benitez chose to bring on youngster Nabil El Zhar instead, he hasn’t kicked a ball since the pre-season tour of Thailand.
What is Rafa afraid of?
Why pay £20 million for a player if you wont take a chance and play him.
His creative passing and shooting skills were exactly what this Liverpool team needed today.
Granted, it was a tough, tight,and physical game, would Aquilani have thrived in those circumstances, I dunno, but you have to throw him in sometime.
However, on the bright side, we kept a clean sheet again, are unbeaten for the 6th game in a row and we seem to be moving in the right direction.
When Benitez finally plays Aquilani with Torres and Gerrard, we can beat anybody in the Premiership and Europe.
