Freddie Fit And Showing Two Fingers
Watched the second half of the MLS Allstars v Everton game in my hotel last night (after a pleasant Vietnamese meal in Montreal for all those worried about my holiday) and was frustrated to see Ljungberg running around like a teenager and giving Baines a thoroughly uncomfortable time. The speed of thought and pace over 15 yards seem to be back and he looked a born again Premiership player. How frustrating that, even in sweltering heat in Mormon Salt Lake City, he still looked twice as fit as he ever looked in the Claret and Blue.
At least he missed the crucial penalty that gave Everton the game with the most absurd "chipped" effort which Howard was able to claw to safety even though he was flat on the floor after diving early. But there is still the nagging question, did we pay him off too early?
