Chelseas has been spending lots of $ on buying players. Well, no surprise there but I hate the fact that Chelsea buy quality players and put them on the bench, eg : Shaun Wright Philips. I hope that Ballack made the right choice by going to that club. Sigh... Kaka and Roberto made the right choice by not going with Chelsea. Tapi kalu Chelsea nak ambil Roberto pun takper. hehe. the reason why, click here. anyway, like i say, it's going to be a fantastic season. Go Liverpool !!!
so far, there has been 4 friendly games and liverpool won 2 of the games. Takper, friendly jer... warming up and getting the new players to adapt with the team. Anyway, nih nak cerita nih. Really funny actually.. during the liv vs FC Kaiserslautern, Pepe Reina (Liv goalkeeper) played as a midfielder because of not enough players. Luis Garcia and Aurelio were injured half time, down with 9 players, Rafa had no choice but to put Pepe as the midfielder... hehe.. kelakar kan... hahah...
Pepe Reina today spoke about his 'debut' on Saturday as a midfield player and admitted he never realised how hard outfield players had to work until he stepped into their boots against FC Kaiserslautern.
With Luis Garcia and Fabio Aurelio both needing to come off with injuries during a frantic second half in Liechtenstein, Liverpool were down to nine men and Rafael Benitez had no option but to throw his goalkeeper into midfield with Robbie Fowler also being forced to return to the pitch despite being substituted at half-time.
"It was the last solution," Reina told liverpoolfc.tv. "We only had nine men on the pitch and although it wasn't normal for a goalkeeper to play as a midfielder, I had to do it.
"Rafa asked if I would mind going on to help the team and I told him it was no problem for me. Did I enjoy it? I don't know - it was more difficult than I thought it would be.
"I never realised just how much the outfield players have to run around in an actual match. This was only a friendly match so I can imagine there's even more running around in a really important game.
"I had a great chance to score what could have been the winner at the time and I should have hit the target. I think the defenders hassling me before I could shoot put me off. You have to remember that I'm a 'keeper and not a striker! My other attempt though wasn't a shot though – it was a really good pass!
"In training I sometimes play outfield but it is very different in an actual match and now I understand how difficult it is to score a goal. It was good fun having the chance to experience playing as an outfield player but I'm looking forward to getting back in goal soon."
