      Likewise. Looking back I'm amazed at just how clinical he was. Just an awesome awesome finisher.

      Watching it again without the beer goggles, he was every bit as good a finisher as Fowler.
      Maybe even better, because he had real, searing pace.

      he has been in the press moaning about being booed at Anfield and crying in the players lounge. He was such an incredible player from a young age adored by the fans and respected throughout the world. He thought he could do better he always seemed to think playing for England put him more in the publics eye and then leaving for RM and leaving Rafa short up front was really poor. He then expected us to be held to ransom over his fee before going to Newcastle. Then just to ensure his stature dropped even further he signed for UTD to be a bit part player before going to Stoke. He could have achieved his ambitions with LFC but he thought we were not big enough for him and now he has to live with his terrible decision and realise he will never have the status players of much less ability who played for the club have.
      Its quite sad really but a lesson learned.

      Who? ;D

      Seriously, though, he's probably got a new book coming out or something. Maybe a new pamphlet advertising himself again? :lmao:

      Fowler was the better all round footballer.
