Just had to post something when I saw his name. Always liked him. A special player. And I still think it was him that made a very special move when I watched Barca many years ago. One of those things that impressed even the Barca crowd. And who can forget what happened when he got to play for Spain? That's Garcia. A player who made things to remember. You just have to like him.

“Australia attracts a lot of people because of a lot of different culture and it’s a beautiful place to live, good points to add up.”

“I suppose like any player coming towards the end of their career wants to be in a changing room, training, competing to me was important before I retire, I didn’t want to leave home."

“But now, the club I chose have been really spot on with me and have demonstrated with me they have goals and youth."

“I’ve been over a month living here, people looked after me well, and I’m enjoying the city. Central Coast is a beautiful and incredible place to live and I’m enjoying the weather.”

“There’s nothing negative I can see. The only negative thing is the team didn’t really get the results today and we’re not doing too well."

“But the team has a lot of potential. Today I was looking forward then the game’s first half was good but we didn’t make it today.”

“The level is good (Australian football), good places with characteristics, you can see every week players take the opportunity each week to excel and they do a great job."

“It’s only a question of the youth, people focus on the youth because of their young boys in the squad."

“The junior development is the future and they’re going to be getting players out soon.”

“It was three wonderful years (at Liverpool), we were lucky to win a lot of important tournaments."

“Liverpool is a historic club, I was lucky enough to play there for many years. I’m always very grateful and I’ve enjoyed being an ambassador for the club."

“To be honest I’m not focusing on post-career at the moment, I’ve been working with TV, been an ambassador for Liverpool, I’m enjoying travelling and talking about football."

“At this point in time I don’t think about being a coach."

“I only take it a day at a time, I only concentrate with the two months I’ve got till the end of the season to put in what I’ve got."

“The club and the youth and really looking forward to see what we’ll do next season. I’ve got nothing more in plan after ahead of April.”

I went to an evening with Luis Garcia event last Friday. He's a really humble, funny and interesting guy. Most of his all time 16 players were Liverpool players too. Sami, Carra, Riise, Alonso, Torres and Gerrard just off the top of me head. I can't remember who else there was as there was free beer for 2 hours :)

The was only about 100 people there too, so I got a chance to chat to him briefly :)

Took some pics of the event...














This one also has the guy who got him to the Central Coast Mariners, Andrew Nealon. He was the physio at the reds from 2010 to 2012ish. Luis said when Andrew rang him, he thought it was a wind up. Same as when Rafa called him to join Liverpool :)

After the Central Coast Mariners last game of a bad season, Luis stayed 2 hours after the match to sign autographs and say his farewells to the fans.

Class.

Saw him last night in Dublin with Cisse, Hamman and Smicer.

A very funny reflection on Istanbul.

A real gent but found it very funny listening to him swear.
I think Didi had told the others that there is nothing an Irish crowd likes more than the odd f- bomb and they all took in turns to deliver much to the delight and laughter from the crowd.

They all looked uncomfortable and when Smicer dropped the C word describing his Norwegian colleague for missing the third penalty , Cisse nearly fell off his stool in embarrassed laughter.
Great fun.

Just seen one of Luis's goals from when he played for Barcelona, wonderful goal and fantastic technique from the little man.

Seriously though, I reckon he could do a job for us in this game and it would be fantastic to see him in a red shirt again. We are only a few injuries away from not being able to field the necessary number of players for both matches.  :P

He's a regular guest on the Joe podcast with Kelly Cates.

I think Luis Garcia's goal against Juventus is as good as any I've ever seen. He was exceptional in the knockout stages of the CL that season and I also recall him sending us on our way to Cardiff with the winner against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Great goal that.

Header against Anderlecht is one of my favourites, incredible goal.

Got a mention on Totally Football Show this week too :)

One of the best goals I've seen in my life. Went ballistic when it went in. We had bloody La Tallec playing and Scott Carson making his debut!

What a team that was, like Milan in the final, a bunch of all time greats. We pummelled them in the first half an hour as well, something no one expected.

Garcia's role in that run I think is somewhat underrated (not by us but generally) given he scored three in the second round, and then the winners in the quaters and semis. And that Juventus goal still looks as great as did back then, love it.

What a goal, what a night!

It is crazy when you look back at our line ups all the way through that run. Le Tallec from absolutely nowhere to start this game. Biscan playing virtually every knock out game with Alonso or Gerrard missing. Carson playing this game. Absolutely incredible achievement beating the sides we did.

Yeah, it's mad when you think about it. That's why I never got the 'luck' shouts. The squad wasn't the strongest at the best of times but we had ridiculous injuries throughout that campaign as well but Rafa somehow found a way to beat teams much stronger than ours.
