Garcia is erratic, it's true and his decision-making is sometimes very strange. The difference is that Garcia has proved, whilst in a Liverpool shirt, that he can deliver in important matches. The problem Garcia has is that he doesn't do it week in and week out which must put a question mark over him. He's bought himself some slack, in my opinion, because of what he did last year. He lacks consistency but has shown he can perform.
Cisse and Morientes haven't shown anything yet. I hope they turn out to be the greatest players ever but reputations count for jack shit unless you do it on the pitch.
Garcia for me, has shown he can do it Europe and against lesser Premiership opposition.
Agreed Morientes has not shown a lot.
But, the big difference between these two players and Cisse is they have had a chance. Cisse has not and sorry coming on for 10 minutes every other game is not a chance it is an insult.
Dont get me wrong I think Cisse will go and good luck to him. But, to say he is great or shit is bollocks cos there is no way you can tell unless you have a crystal ball and can see him in a Lyon shirt as there is no way you have seen enough of him in a red shirt to be able to make a decision either way.
He deserves a chance and his pre season form and Super Cup exploits should have been enough to get him a game, but clearly Rafa does not rate him.
So, if he is pissed off fair play to him. I would be if I had shown good form in pre season and won the Super Cup to then not get a game in any position and watch Pongolle (who the fuck are you) walk into the right mid position where I might have had a chance.
