      The Live Match thread was here - > http://www.lfcreds.com/reds/index.php?topic=20583.0

      Dull game in truth until Kuyt and co came on and turned it into a very good showing

      Man of the Match - Kuyt, 3 assists and generally machine like :laugh:

      Great to see Nemeth bag a couple too!

      Not getting too carried away as it was a pre-season game against poor opposition, but there was plenty of positives to take from the game, Benayoun looks to have picked up where he left of last season, Kuyt only 1 word to describe his performance "immense" and he will get my vote in Liverpool FC big brother for that performance. Nando looks sharp and is only 1 or 2 games from getting his cutting edge, Nemeth and Pacheo showed there true quality on the field surrounded by a better class of player, Carra and Agger looked as solid as ever, Our Defence shackled them and our midfield dominated them, optimistic for the next game , can't wait ....

      The thing I'm taking away from this game is that we showed that we can now break teams down who put 11 men behind the ball.

      Good second half performance.

      Dirk Kuyt looked brilliant, Nemeth - despite not playing brilliantly scored two great goals.  Alonso put in an appearance and no injuries.

      Voronin got lucky - thought he was poor.

      Lucas also impressed.

      Kuyt was amazing. I think Benayoun was a bit off, not too bad though. Agger went down wayyy too easily once and Plessis got done too easily on the left late on, but otherwise no problems really.

      REDS ON SONG AGAINST SINGAPORE
      Internet Report 26 July 2009
      http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/mediawatch/drilldown/MW14871090726-1442.htm
      Liverpool secured their first victory of pre-season thanks to a 5-0 thrashing of Singapore at the National Stadium, with Xabi Alonso appearing as a second-half substitute, reports Eurosport. 
       
      Rafa Benitez will have been pleased to secure a convincing victory with Andrei Voronin opening the scoring in first-half injury time.
       
      Liverpool completely dominated after the break though and after Albert Riera added the second goal, Dirk Kuyt took centre stage when selflessly claiming assists for three goals, teeing up Krisztian Nemeth twice and Fernando Torres once.
       
      One of the biggest cheers of the night was reserved for Alonso though as he appeared as a substitute with 12 minutes remaining.
       
      Despite the presence of a huge number of Reds supporters, and a warm reception prior to kick-off that saw 'You'll Never Walk Alone' played to an appreciative audience, any pretence of a friendly encounter was quickly abandoned when Aleksandar Duric flattened Mascherano with an unnecessary shoulder-barge.
       
      Chances were few and far between in a largely uneventful first half though, with Ryan Babel testing Hassan Sunny in the Singapore goal when connecting with David Ngog's cross after only seven minutes.
       
      The two forwards were dovetailing neatly at times although Liverpool were failing to turn their superior possession into any clear openings as they tended to over-elaborate.
       
      That changed in first-half injury time when Voronin took aim from just outside the box and saw his shot take a deflection to fly past the off-balance Sunny and into the net.
       
      Riera was one of three players introduced at half-time by Benitez and the winger required just five minutes to make an impact on the game as he controlled a Mascherano pass with his chest and finished with ease.
       
      The changes kept on coming and substitutes Kuyt and Nemeth combined to put Liverpool 3-0 in front after 73 minutes. The Dutchman took advantage of some sloppy play from the hosts to charge down the right and tee up his young teammate for an easy finish.
       
      Kuyt was the creator once more after 80 minutes as he found space down the right wing and picked out Torres to leave the Spaniard with a routine finish from five-yards out.
       
      Just three minutes later, and following a clever piece of work from Dani Pacheco, Kuyt claimed his third assist when finding Nemeth, the striker scoring with a fine header from ten yards out.
       
      It was a fine cameo performance from the Dutch forward as he helped orchestrate a dominant victory for Benitez's Reds.

      Singapore success for Reds
      Liverpool up and running after comfortable victory on Far East tour
      http://www.skysports.com/football/match_report/0,19764,11065_3151988,00.html
      Liverpool secured their first pre-season victory of the summer with a comfortable 5-0 rout of Singapore.

      Hungarian youngster Krisztian Nemeth bagged a brace for the Reds, while Andriy Voronin, Albert Riera and Fernando Torres were also among the goals.

      With Rafael Benitez including a number of unfamiliar faces, including goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri, defenders Mikel Dominguez and Philipp Degen and forward David Ngog in his starting line-up, the Reds struggled to assert themselves in the first half against a defensively-minded Singapore side.

      Ryan Babel rose above the Singapore defence to put a header straight at goalkeeper Hassan Sunny after seven minutes but apart from that, there was little to entertain the crowd in the first half as the Premier League side were restricted to shots from distance.

      There were some moments of concern for the Reds as Javier Mascherano twice went to ground after heavy challenges by Mustafic Fahrudin and Noh Alam Shah and the hosts nearly took a shock lead in the 22nd minute when Shi Jiayi's through pass released Shahril Ishak whose weak shot was easily saved by Cavalieri.

      But in stoppage time at the end of the half, Liverpool's opening goal arrived from out of the blue as Voronin got past the challenge of Fahrudin and, with the Singapore defence backing off, fired in an innocuous low shot that crept past a late-diving Hassan.

      Improved
      Buoyed by the unexpected goal, Liverpool were much improved after the break and extended their lead 10 minutes into the second half when Mascherano floated in a fine cross from the right for Riera, who chested the ball down at the far post before firing a low shot past Hassan.

      The fans were clamouring for an appearance by Torres and got their wish just after the hour when he was brought on with Dirk Kuyt in place of Yossi Benayoun and Ngog.

      It was the Dutchman that would make the bigger impression, though, setting up the last three goals, beginning in the 73rd minute when he crossed from the right for 20-year-old Nemeth to slide the ball past Hassan to make it 3-0.

      Alonso came on in the 77th minute for Daniel Agger and just three minutes later started the move that ended with Kuyt crossing for an unmarked Torres to apply the finishing touch from point-blank range for his first pre-season goal.

      And with seven minutes left, another Kuyt cross found Nemeth, who headed home his second of the game.

      Kuyt was immense when he came on. Nemeth bagged two, both of which were good finishes. Lucas had a good game and again Pacheco look quite bright. Very calm on the ball which is fantastic to see in a young lad playing with the first team.

      Can't wait for Espanyol now.

      apart from Kuyt, Torres ,Xabi, Riera, I really enjoyed seeing Nemeth and Pacecho having a good run with the big lads , especially the latter as an attacking mid.
       very good 2nd half

      To be fair, the scoreline is quite expected. The players in Singapore lacks endurance as I have always known (local lad). The 2nd half scoreline proved it, they could not press as hard as they had in the first. In a way Im impressed with the Reds because in this high temp and humidity, they did well, and more energetic then the local players. This just shows how much trainings the staffs and players had to do to keep themselves fit.

      And lastly hope Alonso, Mascherano stays.
      Even saw a spectator holding 'Xabi Stay'.

      Very good second half, even though they were not a very good team, what we did to them in spurts was awesome, we showed today how much better we are with Mascha and Alonso in the team, and this week will be crunch time for both....
