It’s taken me a while but I think that I’ve come to terms with what happened in Athens a couple of Wednesdays ago. The more I think about it, the more I think that it could actually be for the best that Liverpool lost to AC Milan.
Okay, so Crouch could have done with more than 12 minutes on the pitch and taking off Mascherano proved to be a disaster as he’d kept Kaka under control all game.
Nevertheless, Liverpool’s weaknesses were more than obvious, even to the inexperienced new American owners. To come so close to winning the Champions League again and seeing a lack of a striker with the prowess of a (much as it pains me say) Drogba in front of goal may just open up the purse strings a little more.
If we can entice someone like Eto’o to Anfield for next season then a genuine push for the Premiership could be a reality.
