    St Gallen 1st half review

    I meant to do a 2nd half review too but fell asleep, which says something about the game.....I actually do put great stock in these friendlies, because you can tell a lot about (a) the motivation of squad players that should be looking to really prove something....lets face it if they've lost much fitness over the summer rewarding themselves for a tough season, then they aren't focussed enough. Also because the games don;t matter, and are effectively training games, you should if a player is any good, be able to spot a mile off a bit of class, and comfort on the ball.

    Spearing looked bang on it, Insua also, both obviously targeting 1st team berth's. It looks far too early for the likes of Nemeth, Pacheco, San Jose, and Degen looked uncomfortable all night, but he has been injured for ever.

    • For the 2nd half

      Most of the players played well but Benny, Johnson, Skrtyl and (shock) Lucas where probably the stand out performers.

      Pacheco (sp) was way too greedy...shooting when a better option would be to pass.....I suppose that will come with a bit more experience

      Sissoko was the same as always, a little bit plodding and slow with the ball.....sorry I mean Plessis. ;oP

      Everyone else did the job required

      TBH, It wasn't an inspiring game but then it was Liverpool playing football, and it wasn't a repeat so I enjoyed it.
