    • Lets face it, when he was with us 3 years ago, we finished 2nd and should have won it really. We were playing great attacking football and we looked balanced. The following year, we were half the team we were. Bit obvious why. He may not be the fastest player around but like Jan Molby, he could pass that ball to a tee. Get him back and we will win that league!

      • Can't disagree with you there, he was the midfield maestro, and he can drop a 40 yard inch perfect pass on a dime.. he even did so twice in the recent friendly vs Usa for Mr. Torres who raced in behind all alone ala LFC 2008 style, hit the post and scored another.

        Problem is, unless Jose' has no plans for him which is unlikely or they have some sort of falling out he's staying in Madrid at least til the end of his current deal.

        So, for now, we either bring in Adam and hope he does the same lefty, seems he can, or perhaps Gerrard adapts more to that sort of role on occasion... his delivery is pretty damn good too, and it could preserve his legs/prevent nagging groin/hammy injuries..

    • I got a little goosepimpley when he said he would never rule out a return but lets be honest, it wont be happening anytime soon! Maybe in a couple more seasons we can fit him in once more.

      • Hobs did you see the interview with Alonso on lfc? The interview was great, and I have so much respect for him and think of him sort in a legendary status if nothing else but for his fondness and appreciation for LFC and everyone in Liverpool ..

        I loved hearing him say he'd return, but agree, like you say, it won't happen soon and probably won't really be feasible since he's 29, starting for the biggest (also most pathetic and embarassing collection of money bags) club in Madrid, competing in CL and this year should push Barca to the brink on all fronts.

        Maybe he'd be available when 32 or so, I'd love him back even as a spot role player for that killer ball, but fees and age might prohibit it. I think becoming a coach would be brilliant and in the cards!
