Nap, to be honest, I am a little worried about Jari's future at LFC. Most of the times he has played, he has done great. But where do we play him? As a striker? Not really. Midfielder? Nope. He doesn't get back to defend as well as the others, does he? Somehow, we just don't seem to find a place for him.
What I like about the man is that he always tries to get involved. He wants the ball, he wants to get things going and he has the ability to open up any defence. IMO, he's exactly the kind of player we need when we play teams on the bottom half of the table, or when our opponents sit back.
Probably the best way to play Jari, is behind 2 strikers. (It's been said over and over again, I know). Give him a free role and I guess Berger, Hamann and Gerrard would have to be the 3 (narrow) midfielders behind him. We'd be short of width, unless we get our fullbacks forward. Vignal/Riise + Xavier/Wright (/Babbel!) would be OK, but Carra? No place for him then. (Sounds like a really crazy conclusion I've come up with here, play Jari or Carra?
I really hope we get to see a lot of Jari this spring. I reckon he may be the key to the title, this season's Gary Mac.
