Accurate? Since when was a number a suitable means of appraising a players performance.
Fair enough. I actually agree. But since everyone likes to give players ratings out of ten- I said that those were the most accurate I'd seen.
I mean, for sure- a number doesn't convey the incredible goals, touches or movement- but it gives an idea of comparison within the team.
I think Kewell should have started today. I noticed his awareness of Cisse's runs. Unfortunately, his passes were blocked- if he was on for longer I think he could have been very dangerous for Anderlecht, and maybe even scored one. Garcia's lob over the defence to put Kewell through in the last seconds was a great opportunity, but he dragged his shot- if he'd had the chance to get a few more shots you would fancy him for a goal.
Zenden looked fired up from his goal. He did ok for me, you can hardly judge a player by 15 or so mins of football, but some of his crosses weren't that good, but he got forward well and took the full back on.
Crouch... his goal will come. When he scores our captain will be the first to congratulate him...
Gerrard. A brilliant captain. He really wants Crouch to score, whenever he has the ball he looks up for Crouch, and was even shouting at Garcia to cross it to him when he hit the side netting. Brilliant sentiment, although may not be to the good of the team in the game.
A brilliant performance by the 2 centre backs. Didn't let anything past them.
If we perform like this every game, then not only can we challenge for the title, we can realistically hope to win it. Let's hope it continues.
