      Had the help of a deflection. Just a shame you couldn't say the same about his heading ability!!

      He was good against Scotland, in a match where Norway absolutely bullied them.

      His brother, Bjorn Helge Riise looked good as well.

      RIISE: AQUILANI WILL SHINE AT ANFIELD

      Roma defender John Arne Riise has backed former teammate Alberto Aquilani to be a star in the Barclays Premier League.
      Riise knows all about adapting to life in England after spending seven years at Anfield - and he believes his Italian friend has all the qualities necessary to succeed.
       
      "When I first came to Roma, I didn't know a thing about Aquilani," said Riise, who swapped Merseyside for Rome last summer.
       
      "I knew all about Francesco Totti, Daniele De Rossi and Philippe Mexes, of course, but Aquilani was the player who surprised me the most in my first months with what he could do.
       
      "He's really good on the ball, with good passing, good movement, he works hard and is a good professional.
       
      "He likes to have the ball at his feet but not because he likes to dribble, he just wants to keep the team moving. He never stands still, he's always on the run.
       
      "He certainly runs more than Xabi and is probably more dangerous in terms of getting in the box and trying to score goals.
       
      "When I came to Rome he was my neighbour and helped me out a lot. He's a good friend. Liverpool will be getting a very good player."
       
      Aquilani will become just the second Italy international to sign for Liverpool after agreeing personal terms to complete the move from Serie A.
       
      Riise added: "There is an obvious difference between the Italian and English leagues.
       
      "Here it is more tactical whereas in England you're playing 90 minutes up and down, up and down, and there is more emphasis on power and physical force. But Cristiano Ronaldo isn't all about physique and he has been the best player in the Premier League in recent seasons.
       
      "Everyone can adapt. It just takes time. The key is how long it takes. I was lucky - I fitted in quite quickly when I came from Monaco. Alberto is someone who wants to make the most of his talent and wants to prove himself, so if Liverpool come in for you it is very hard to say no."
       
      Meanwhile, Riise remains a keen follower of his former club and believes 2009-10 could be an historic season for the Kop.
       
      "Last season I was so sure they would do it. They made a fantastic start but drew some games and United got stronger," said the Norway international.
       
      "I really hope they can do it this time. Xabi and Alvaro Arbeloa leaving is a shame, but Glen Johnson is a brilliant signing.
       
      "All the Premier League games are shown on Sky Italia, and I managed to watch every Liverpool game last season. The club is in my heart. I had all my highlights at Liverpool. I still speak with Stevie and Carra, as well as Pepe Reina and Dirk Kuyt.
       
      "The first months for me at Roma were hard, learning a new language and settling in, but I am happy here and enjoying it. We can have a really good season and I hope Liverpool can, too."

      He's still got as long as he stays away from the 5 yard box and tries to clear with a diving header  :f_tongueincheek:

      I love JAR! Now he doesn't play for the 'Pool any more! Hardly a legend and his sweet left foot just wellied the ball against a Jock defender causing the ball to fly in the opposite corner.

      Really wish he was still with us. Him at left-back, Johnson at right-back would be very good indeed. Especially going forward - counter attacks galore!

      Always loved John. Wished he was still with us. I mean, he'd be great down the left. Rather have him on the bench than Dossena.

      Yeah, i cant disagree with that, id still have had Risse here, unfortunately a lot of people never forgave him for the o.g against the chavs, it hurt Riise as much as it hurt us, and that should not have happened , he loves this club still. And given the choice now Riise or Dossena , i know who i would have.

      Riise every single time. Like you said, he loves the club. He would walk back to Anfield to play for us.

      Insua, at least he can defend!

      Christ a legend, has everyone forgot his right-foot was f**king useless, just there for standing on and if i remember rightly was giving a roasting TWICE by Pennant when he played for Leeds and Birmingham.

      He was alright, scored a few good goals, but I wouldn't be going over the top about him.

      Amazing how a few nice words and some well taken goals from a left back can have people forget at times how completely inept he was defensively.

      He's got a great engine and a good few seasons left in him yet. Wouldn't fit in with the NESV philosophy anyway, so i suppose you're right.

      The last thing i want to see though is Risse smashing in a 35 yarder against us for Fulham though, stuff of nightmares is that!.  :couch:
