Who’ll become The Reds top scorer this season?

Fernando Torres had successes open 2008/2009 English Premiere League with victory. Versus Sunderland at Stadium Of Light at last weekend, he made the only one goal that evening. Even at that match Liverpool can’t show the best performance. But thank God for Fernando Torres. He is our savior.

This season The Reds have a lot of striker. Beside Fernando Torres Liverpool also bought Robbie Keane from Tottenham Hotspurs. Most people said that this is Rafa’s big deal this season because Keane was great player while as Spurs striker. He was made 80 goals with Spurs.

With Fernando Torres and Robbie Keane plus Dirk Kuyt and Andriy Voronin, there is no doubt at all to say that The Reds frontline is good enough. And don’t forget to another Liverpool transfer from Paris Saint-Germain, David N’Gog who had score 2 goals along pre-season matches.

Who will become Liverpool top scorer this season? Or maybe English Premiere League this season? Is he one of those Reds strikers? Or maybe he is someone from midfield? We know that we have great midfielder such Steven Gerrard, Xabi Alonso or Yossi Benayoun.

Bring The Glory Back To Anfiled.

It’s almost two decades that English Premiere League lost from Anfield. And that’s hurt enough for us –the biggest football club supporter in the world.

For the club as big as Liverpool, it is a sad fact that we have been lifts the major local trophy for 18 years. I always believe that we have capability to get it just like 70s – 80s eras. I don’t believe if somebody told me that now it’s not The Reds glorious time.

Tomorrow, August 16, the most exciting national football league in the world will be begins. Just like an old time there’s always a big question in our mind. Can we make it now? Can we bring the trophy back to Anfield? Yes we’ve been hungry for national major trophy for a long long time ago.

But just like an old time we’ve always hope that Rafa and his squad will satisfying us with local and international trophies. With recent squad I think they can make our dream come true.

C’mon Reds let’s bring the glory back to Anfield!
