After Liverpool fired another blank at home to Fulham on Saturday, I think it is time we get another attacking option which could get us the goals when Torres is having an off day. And one name that makes perfect sense and would fit the bill is Thierry Henry. I know this may sound like Fantasy Football stuff but can you imagine how deadly a combination of Gerrard, Henry and Torres could be?
Okay, I will admit that I thought that the Keane – Torres partnership would be the best in the Premiership but I have been disappointed that far. Yes they may need some more time to gel but we really do not have much time left as we need to find goals and find them soon. Who knows, maybe an Henry – Torres combination may be worse than the current Keane – Torres but I believe Henry is a world class player and still is, and would be a great asset for us. It is his speed and fire power which we may just need come the second half of the season to fire us to title glory.
Henry let us know what he thinks about Gerrard and he has said that he would love to play alongside our captain. I believe that if Henry is offered an opportunity to play for us he would not turn it down. It may be difficult to prize him away from Barcelona but anything is possible in football today.
I would not only like to see Henry at Anfield just to partner Torres upfront and score bag full of goals for us but I believe he will show Ryan Babel a lot. Babel reminds me of Henry when he just came into the Premiership. Both played out on the left and later Henry turned into an out and out striker and I believe Babel has the potential to follow into Henry’s boots. And what better a way for Babel than to learn from the best day in and day out at Melwood.
