A Birthday to remember for the King

Published Add your comment

It couldn’t have gone any better for Liverpool on Sunday. Three points, a hat-trick for Dirk Kuyt, and a comprehensive beating of Manchester United.

Every Liverpool player answered the call to stand up and be counted as mentioned last week, which led to the host’s performance being arguably their best of the season so far.

However special mention should be reserved for Luis Suarez who played a key role in the victory. Not only did he have a part to play in all three goals, but his work rate, commitment and effort was a joy to behold for any Kopite watching. There was even time for the Kop to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Kenny Dalglish who turned 60 last Friday!

Another plus point was the introduction of Andy Carroll, who made his long awaited debut since he signed from Newcastle United in the transfer window. The signs are good and if the strike duo can form a formidable partnership, goals will surely follow.


Unfortunately, last night’s defeat away to Braga was a setback especially after Sunday’s events. With captain Steven Gerrard injured and a defence hampered by injury (as well as Suarez being cup-tied), Kenny Dalglish’s side were hampered in their quest to secure a favourable result. What didn’t help matters was a poor game that failed to spark into life.

Although Liverpool’s quest for the Europa League is far from over, they will have to improve if they are to reach the quarter finals. It is vital they go out on the attack against a side that have already defeated Celtic and Arsenal in the Champions League this season. Failure to do so and the Kop may be in for long night.
