Welcome KEANO!

The new number 7 for Liverpool. Robbie Keane signed for Liverpool Football Club from Tottenham Hotspur. I was anticipating for his news everyday, as speculation of us signing the top scorer of Ireland. The wait was finally done when we finalised the signing of 18 million pounds.

Many would think whether is he worth 18 million? Well, time will tell and I do think the Liverpool supporter's a good signing. Being in the premier league for so long, there's no problems for this man to adapt to English football. His versatility is a strong point and he can score goals, some spectacular ones as well.

Partnering upfront with Fernando Torres will be an exciting prospect and many are already talking about this partnership to be scaring defences. I do hope so, somehow, Robbie Keane may be just the final piece of a big jigsaw puzzle of Rafa Benitez.

Will Keane's signing will spur the team on? I'm looking forward to see how he can fit into the current team and hopefully, do what he did at White Hart Lane or even better.

Welcome to Liverpool, Robbie Keane!

Pre-Season Friendlies Goals!

The team is warming up for the season and pre-season friendlies are coming every now and then. It's nice to see the players playing again although it's more of training up their fitness for the new and long season to start.

Managed to find some goals they scored during these games. Voronin and Lucas! :)

Pre-Season Friendly: Benayoun's Goal

The Reds played their first Pre-season friendly against derby rivals, Tranmere Rovers. It's a good warm up to see some of the debutants and Daniel Agger, who was badly missed the whole of last season.

Benayoun's goal is world-class!

Thank You, Peter Crouch!

Peter Crouch! A signing by Rafa Benitez himself from Southampton. The lanky striker has proved that despite his height, he can be like other strikers as well, scoring goals week in week out. It took him a while before he starts his scoring account with Liverpool. I could still remember how he celebrated when he broke his duck against Wigan.

He continued scoring and produced some special moments on his own. Rafa does like him and Crouch just have his own way of playing which is pretty one of a kind to me. He seems to be able to score more goals with his foot than his head despite his height advantage.

Nobody will forget his wonder bicycle kick in the Champions League as well as the hat-trick against Arsenal. He scored with his right, left foot and his head on that special day at Anfield. I do like him as a player, but somehow and sometimes, when Peter plays, Liverpool gets too predictable. Pumping the high balls for him to flick on and when he fails to do that, the attack breaks down.

That's probably one of the factors why Rafa brought Torres last season which actually led to Crouch's exit today. He was not able to play as much first team football as he wanted. The Torres and Gerrard partnership up-front was working well for the team and it's really hard for Crouch to play when Rafa wishes to implement that system.

It was reported that Crouch was offered a new contract at the end of the season, however, Rafa couldn't promised him first team football week in week out. That's the main reason why Crouch left for Portsmouth where he believed he would be offered first team action. I guess it's part and parcel of football. 11 million pounds is a good deal for Liverpool too.

Still, I do believe Crouch is a good player who can score goals and his lanky legs are more than they look like. All the best, Crouch!

Thank you, Peter Crouch for everything you've contributed to Liverpool Football Club.

12 Years Old Torres!

Found this on the net. Fernando Torres playing at the age of 12. It seems to me that his style of play has been the same. Always on the ball and clinical in his finishing. Enjoy the awesome video!

Liverpool Number 9!
