so many of you are talking about proving the manager of his worth but then didn't he already do that in the super cup final? and that was another occasion where he was brought on as a sub.
i can't believe some liverpool fans. i was never a particular cisse fan before he came or even at the start of his career here but the way he is being treated by some is ridiculous. he has barely been given a chance and the same was true on sunday.
our passing was poor and retention the same at times, garcia (a player im a fan of) was pretty poor and on too many occasions a liablility in this game, against this opponent. why was djibril not brought on in his place? we know he can take the right wing if needed. what was the point in playing cisse for 10 minutes?
i have never questioned rafa's tactics (not even with kewell starting v milan
) but he did dissapoint me on sunday in that this was our game at anfield, our game v the mancs and we couldn't manage a 4-4-2, not even give rafas chosen striker a chance with another front man, a man who could take on the right side if vital in the game. could he have done much worse than garcia's general play? (minus luis's couple of chances)
if rafa really does not want djibril why not make this clear and get rid in the summer? why sell baros for a quite measly sum. lyon are sure to be interested in cisse and we could have used those funds on other important positions.
im still concerned about whether nando will settle, how rafa will play him and although i think pongolle will be a very key player for us, i want cisse to be given a chance. i don't think he has been given anything like the opportunity he deserves. he was a sub for the super cup and won it for us. he won us the uefa super cup so give the guy a bloomin chance.IM ONE REDS FANS THAT WILL BE HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED IF THE DJIB LEAVES IN JAN!
