Liverpool will be the first football fans to jump on Dirk Kuyt’s back when he is out of form, we often hear “Kuyt lacks the class to play for Liverpool” or “Rafa has to stop picking him, his s***”. during the previous game against Spurs game Dirk showed real class, he was selected in his preferred striking spot and rose to the occasion with 2 good goals the latter being a retaken penalty which took real guts to convert.
During the match the Dutch international put himself in positions that could of lead to him netting three or four goals, but two was enough to leave Liverpool one point away for Tottenham in the crucial battle for fourth place.
The weight of expectation left on Dirk’s shoulders with the absence of Torres and Gerrard could shatter any mans spirit but not him. He once again run himself into the ground and showed during his celebration of his first goal how much he wants to and love scoring for Liverpool Football Club.
Kuyt’s fight, determination and attitude will continue to cover what some will call a lack of skill and as he regains the form we saw last season which lead to him netting 15 premier league goals. Dirk’s attitude is why he continues to remain a key player in Liverpool’s battle for fourth place. People will talk about model professionals, and I don’t believe you can be any more professional than Dirk. This is the reason behind Kuyt’s constant inclusion by Rafa. So in the forthcoming games Kuyt’s attitude will continue to shine and lift the dark cloud which has lingered over the Liverpool team all season.
A win over Wolves will lead to Liverpool’s 13th point in five matches, which isn’t half bad for a team in as biggest mess as Liverpool.
