No More Mighty Comeback This Time

But Invaluable Lessons For Youngsters

UEFA Champions League Group C

Galatasaray 3 - 2 LIVERPOOL

GAL - Ates (24min). Buruk (28min). Ilic (79min);
LIV - Fowler (22min, 90min);

Match Highlights:

A year on and a return to the Ataturk stadium, where Liverpool won their 5th European title. The conclusion of the story isn't as miraculous as the previous encounter there, but with nothing to play for, Liverpool fielded a weakened side to face Galatasaray, who are so formidable at home. Welcome to hell, boys.

With key players such as Gerrard, Hyypia and Reina rested back in England, Rafa sent out several young guns to brood them and let them learn on the pitch. I must say it must be a very invaluable lesson for players like Peltier & Guthrie because how many of the reserve players can actually claim they played a game for the Reds in a European competition?

It might not be a pleasing results, with some mistakes here and there. But hey, we scored 6 goals in 2 away games!

With distractions off the pitch and already sealed their place as group leaders in group C, many can argue that match as a mere 'testimonial' match for a ground that holds so much memories for fans and players a like. Millions across the world including me shed tears during the finals and even though we're physically away from it, we felt the attachment to the venue and the occasions itself.

Even stadiums have souls.

So now we enter the last 16 as group leaders but there is also chances of us meeting up with the big guns. Just as Rafa mentioned, this is where the Champions League begin. With Barcelona, Inter and Roma finishing 2nd in their group, they are all our potential opponents in the next round which we will know next Friday.
