Rafa seriously running out of options up front
Ngog and Kuyt – both a bit poorly
If Rafa Benitez thinks that he’s having a bad day, he’d be wise to look up a colleague of Gordon Brown’s called Sue. Sue is having one of the worst days ever. For those of you who haven’t bothered keeping up with political news, Gordon Brown has today been overheard bitching about some prune faced misery guts who dared to speak to him as his took a stroll around some godawful corner of somewhere or other. Apparently, this was all Sue’s fault.
Anyway, up in Liverpool, Rafa Benitez is also having his day ruined – possibly by Sue – with news that all of his best strikers are going down like flies, with the important Atletico Madrid game winking on the horizon. He said this regarding Kuyt and Ngog (as reported in the Daily Mail):
“Kuyt did not train on Tuesday and will have a light session today.”
“We will decide tomorrow because he still has some problems.”
“He is a really important player for us but we will not take any risks with him if it is not necessary.”
“Ngog has the same situation with his back.”
“We will have to push him more in training today and then see how he feels tomorrow.”
That probably just leaves Babel to play up front.
Nice one Sue!
