We have attacking problems, i.e. a lack of alternatives up top, the thing is we have a talented striker who could well be about to explode onto the scene, only for some reason we loaned him out to a faraway country and refuse to bring him back, why?
Whilst it would be churlish to suggest that Fernando Torres was the only decent striker we have I think its safe to say that when El Nino is out we struggle to find the back of the net but there is a youngster, Mr Krisztian Nemeth, who is beginning to get a bit of a reputation for himself. The Hungarian has a handy knack of scoring goals and has been doing so throughout his time at the club, be it in the reserves or youth team and now he is doing pretty well at AEK Athens and can’t stop scoring for the various level of the national team he has been representing.
There is a ground swell of opinion among Liverpool fans that Nemeth should be brought back from Athens as soon as possible, but for some reason Rafa doesn’t feel this is the right time to do so. I think that on occasion Benitez doesn’t trust enough to youth, if such a player had been at Arsenal he would be playing regularly in the Carling Cup and be on the bench ready to make an impact in the Premier League but here he is aged 20 and still yet to play a single minute in the senior set-up.
Whilst its good to see the likes of Jay Spearing, Martin Kelly and Daniel Ayala in the first team picture there is also good reason to try some of the other youngsters we have, if nothing else it may put some pressure on the regulars and cause them to buck up their ideas.
Please bring him back Rafa!
