Friends Of Liverpool

After last night’s disappointing performance against Wolves, the question must be asked.
Why wasn’t Aquilani playing?
The little Italian had begun to find his feet in a Liverpool shirt, using the ball well, making things happen in the middle of the pitch, showing lots of neat touches and he set up the goal by Kuyt after 5 minutes against Spurs.
To my mind he should have been an automatic starter last night with either Lucas or Riera on the bench.
But Rafa obviously doesn’t fancy him in tight, physical matches, so he was dropped to the bench and the team struggled for creativity without him.
Rafa, you have got to have more faith in your players and the team.
The best way to cope with a team like Wolves or Bolton (up next) is to get the ball down and pass it.
Pass and move is the Liverpool way not hoof it up the field.
Lets hope we see the ‘Little Prince’ in the team on Saturday, not warming the bench again.
What do you think?
Was Rafa right to leave him out of the team against Wolves?
