Sample text

Or, one Shevchenko and half a Shaun Wright-Phillips. While Benítez was saddled with Cissé –– a player he could not find the best use for –– there was a double-whammy connected with the French forward. Not only had Benítez seen a large chunk (approximately 40%) of what would have been his first summer’s transfer budget eaten up by Cissé’s arrival, but then, when he was going to recoup around £8m, and therefore reduce his net spending by that same amount, the striker broke his leg representing France.

Is the disappointing tally of medals in van Nistelrooy’s career –– given the goals he’s scored and the teams he’s played for –– all one big coincidence? Surely you throw a man like that into any side –– especially a top side –– and success follows? The same applies to his time with the Dutch national team, from which he was ultimately expelled. Or does van Nistelrooy represent a certain kind of player, one who plays for himself (and does a damn good job of it) but who ultimately, in some subtle way, disrupts the team?

If drawing in Sheffield wasn’t ideal, it wasn’t disastrous; losing a tricky qualifier would have been. Liverpool faced decent, experienced opposition in Maccabi Haifa, and a trip all the way to the Ukraine to play the game. To gamble with playing the same players in three successive games at such an early stage of the season (given a strong team would be needed at home to West Ham), before the players were fully match fit, was unnecessary. As it was in Sheffield, the Reds lost Riise and Carragher to firsthalf injuries.
