Some good news coming out of the Liverpool treatment room: Joe Cole should be fit to face Tottenham on Sunday having been sidelined by a hamstring injury. Cole has missed the last five games for Liverpool and I am sure he will be raring to get back onto the field and kick start his Liverpool career which has not gotten off to the best of starts.
The return of Joe Cole will come as a boost to Roy Hodgson as he now has more attacking options. Against West Ham, Hodgson opted to start with Ngog and Torres upfront and that worked well, but I doubt Hodgson will be brave enough to start with those two together on Sunday against Spurs which could just mean Joe Cole could come in for Ngog and Cole will play just behind Torres.
stick him on the bench and let him work his way into the team – I hate the way that certain players are just given preferential treatment and a first team berth that they don’t deserve, whereas the “fringe” players don’t get a look in, regardless of what is going on at the club.
Let’s see what impact Cole can has as a sub or playing with the reserves and if he can earn his way back into the regular starting 11!
