Default The Official Liverpool Thread


IF YOU needed evidence as to why Liverpool trail the leaders it came in the defeat at Newcastle.

A couple of errors in defence were costly, but the Reds could still have won the game if the strikers had given us a glimpse of anything approaching clinical finishing.

It was great to see Craig Bellamy find the net on his return to his old club, but he really should have scored more, and on another day could have had a hat-trick.

It's been one area that has been lacking throughout the season - a regular goalscorer.

After previous seasons of disappointment up front, it was hoped that the combinations of Dirk Kuyt, Bellamy and Peter Crouch, could provide the firepower that would launch a successful season. But each of them have done it only fleetingly.

It's an area that needs sorting for next season, and hopefully Rafa Benitez will be given the funds by new co-owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks to bring in top class strikers.

It's fair to say that the Reds trio have each had their moments, with some spectacular goals, but all are lacking the consistency of a 20-goal man.

I have said all along that Kuyt can be a dangerous player in and around the box, but spends too much of his time outside it.

Bellamy is very quick and can play a bit, but he has to start thinking more about his football.

He lacks the timing and it shows by the number of goals he has scored to the chances he has had. He also needs to learn to look along the line to time his runs because he is often caught offside.
