Benitez .... prick

Post by bobo the clown » Fri Aug 17, 2007 9:30 am

I know there's probably other threads with tyhis theme ... & quite rightly ... but I thought "new season, new start".
Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has told McClaren he cannot pick Steven Gerrard, even though he will play for the Reds on Sunday. (Mail)
So ... Stephen Gerrard, a truly high class player, despite being an outrageous diver and not afraid to go in two footed or late, or over the ball ... gets injured in a game.

A fuss is made & it looks like he'll miss a few matches. But Liverpool have a massive game at the weekend.

So, Mr Benitez's solution ??? Well, it seems Gerrad will be fit to play at the weekend, but will NOT be fit to play in midweek in a friendly for England.

Just, exactly, HOW does that work ??

Apparently, the logic is ... ''... if he trains and plays more games after that it will be a bigger risk. We know you cannot push a player too much; for one game it is okay - for more it is a risk."

Personally ... & call me bad minded ... I hope he plays & damages it more. The only downside of that is that England may suffer, but frankly, that's necessary for McClaren to be seen as the pointless tosser he is. Get McClaren out ... watch BFSA tout himself (pointlessly) for the job & watch the bar-code fans turn on him for disloyalty. Seems like a plan to me.

The Anfield boss will ''push'' his captain to play against Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday, despite scans showing he has a hairline fracture of the big toe on his right foot.

Manager, player and medical staff have conferred - and the upshot is that Gerrard will play against the former champions and then rest during international week.

England manager Steve McClaren's problems for the midweek friendly against Germany are clearly not top of Benitez's list - even if he is about to deny England the player who would have captained the side in John Terry's absence.

Benitez will use Gerrard, who picked up the injury against Toulouse in the Reds' 1-0 Champions League qualifying round first-leg win, and leave McClaren with no choice but to accept the player will not be fit to face the Germans.

McClaren could pick a squad, force Gerrard to travel to the England team HQ for medical tests yet still find that he could not be risked.
Not advocating mass-murder as an entirely positive experience, of course, but it had its moments.
"I understand you are a very good footballer" ... "I try".

manager wants to take a risk with his player for the club that pays his wages in a crunch game, meaning he'll miss an international that has no bearing on the club's fortunes. seems perfectly reasonable to me
power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely

Any road, i don't think we need to worry too much about the centre midfield. We're uite blessed in that position. Lampard and Gerrard don't seem to play well together so it could be a blessing in disguise.

Plenty of quality backups.

Nowt to cry about, let Wafa have his way.

Yep, this fella says it about as well as I could. Managers have been doing it for years, will continue to do so.

Stop pissing and whinging when it doesn't affect you.

"I do not feel more pressure because I have bought players and I would rather it was not about me and Jose all the time.

"I do not really enjoy the exchanges that have gone on between me and Jose, I would prefer there to be none."
The Waiter wrote:"We try to sign players we think are good enough for us,” Benítez said. “Now in modern football it depends on the money. Some players prefer more money and it’s something you cannot control. You must only pay the money you can afford and the right money for each player. We can compete with other teams in the market if we want, but we will only pay the right money for the right players.

“Malouda was one of our names, but he decided to go to Chelsea. He knows why. The lifestyle in London? I don’t think so. I don’t want to say why, but I know the answer.”

I've seen the three worst penalty decisions that I've ever seen over the course of the same weekend. First off was the one that Portsmouth got against us when Cid clearly took the ball, then there was West Ham's when the ball had gone out of play before Bellamy decided to take a tumble, and then this one where the Chelsea boy barges into the Liverpool defender whilst the ball is nowhere near, and Rob Styles points to the spot! :shock:

A friendly, moreover. Considering Stevie Me's barely-contained jealousy at being overlooked for the England armband, there'd be more of a fuss if it were a crunch Euro 2008 game.

I say again

Bentley, David

Where does it stop

When is it acceptable for players to pick and choose their games

And what message does it send out to players

Special treatment for the diver isn't likely to help with squad unity
