Catch 22: Kuyt & Bellamy or Crouch & Fowler?

Dirk Kuyt and Craig Bellamy
did very well for Liverpool in Eindhoven last night. If I was in Rafa Benitez’ shoes, I’d probably choose Kuyt/Bellamy as my first-choice strike partnership, with Peter Crouch/Robbie Fowler in reserve.

The Crouch/Fowler axis is okay, but they have absolutely no pace between them, unlike Kuyt/Bellamy – and surely most Prem defences would list pace as the attribute they most fear in a striker?

Which pairing would you favour?

  1. truth says:

    Rafa’s pairings are not mine.
    I’d choose Bellamy and Crouch. Bellamy to work his tail off, Crouch to finish.
    Fowler is slow, and Kuyt still looks lost.
