    it's the gold sparkles on the jersey lah!

    it makes them play better!!!!

    =)
    My take on this is that the majority of the continental players in the Liverpool team find the EPL too taxing. Too much running here and there, with overtouchy self-righteous referees who blow the whistle for every little petty infringement and they love to miss the obvious fouls. Also living in Liverpool city itself can't be much fun at all.

    When they play Champions' League, it's a cup tie mood with generally more agreeable/reasonable referees, and the players get a chance to play against more interesting opponents that they can play more tactically and skillfully against. In a sense, it's more fun for them.

    To do well in the EPL, takes a lot more effort............. Don't talk about playing man. I already feel tired watching a typical EPL game. I don't blame them if they generally can't be bothered.

    It'll be darn funny if say Liverpool keeps ending up mid-table in the EPL and keeps winning the Champions' League for the next few years. I am just joking about this last sentence of course........ it's quite obvious that Wigan Athletic will be the next kings of Europe....

    I think it's more abt the style and pace. If you noticed, Europe game is more like chess, each team probe the other team looking for weakness. in EPL, it's usually very fast and furious. When it's fast, players such as Garcia will make mistakes and Alonso will have less time for pin point passes. More one-touch football is required in EPL.

    imagine if fergie hire him as the " motivation consultant". confirm they will win every game. every player will play like roy keane at his prime for the full 90 min.

    if not, he break his own record by hanging 11 men in 90 min!

    Default Ex-Liverpool player strangely claims England stronger than Real

    http://smh.com.au/news/football/engl...578212718.html

    Fails to mention about his bitter time on the bench in Spain during interview. Tries to hide deep embarassment that current club apparently going no where

    kewell has shown today that he is getting there...
    he needs more match practice...and soon i believe we will see the kewell we bought him for!
    Confidence is thinking you'll be Champions, arrogance is stating it.

    yeah, he played pretty well on the left wing. but i thought the final ball from him is disappointing.
    still, good to see him taking on defenders!

    Somehow, I find that he only plays well for his country... more motivation and drive? But at Liverpool...

    Well, if Singapore can't even beat Thailand or Myanmar on a regular basis..........

    And in 2010, there's the Australians to steal one place in the Asian confederation.

    BTW, Trinidad and Tobago just beat Bahrain to qualify and they have about just 1 million population (it's the country with the smallest population ever to qualify for the WC). Uruguay has about 3 million in population with the majority of the team playing in some of the biggest clubs in the world.
