Just watching the 2006 FA Cup Final and Morrientes just come on. I remember being made up when we signed him, just wondering Ed 1 your thoughts on why it didn’t work out for him?

{Ed001's Note - because he couldn't get used to the style of play, he joined too late and it was too fast for him. Added to that, he never really settled in properly in England.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks Ed, wondered if it was a case of him not manage to settle. Thanks Ed and hope you’re keeping well.

{Ed001's Note - you also have to question whether he was actually as good as we all thought to be honest.

Good thanks mate, how's things with you?}

Never looked like he was willing to stick his body where he might get hurt. Technically very good as the handful of goals he scored for us show, but always seemed to want it on a plate.

On the subject of 05/ 06. Opinions on Djibril Cisse? Scored 19 goals that season and his goal in the Cup Final was actually pretty good. But if he had done a better job of staying onside and not routinely blasted shots straight at opposition keepers, he probably would've scored about 30.

{Ed001's Note - he was blisteringly fast and hit shots with incredible power but lacked genuine technique.}

I liked cisse. I think he could have become a really tidy player. Injury killed his career.

Crikey the fella scores 19 goals in a season and you still complain
I will agree with Ed 001 no actual technical ability but if you watch some of his goals for auxerre they were pretty tasty.

Met Cisse a few times, there was one miserable man if ever I met one. Married a girl local to where I grew up and made himself Lord of Frodsham.

Cisse should’ve scored a lot more than 19 goals. The number of times he would run in to a great scoring position and simply blast the ball as hard as he could somewhere in the vicinity of the goal. With a bit of composure he could have doubled his tally.

speaking of cisse and also having watched the 2006 cup final yesterday, the thing I will always remember about him is when he opened the box containing his winners medal and the look of disappointment on his face, what exactly was he expecting the medals to look like?
Added to that he danced like crazy when the cup was presented on the podium before remembering afterwards he could barely walk.
Not the greatest number 9 lfc ever had, but he was one hell of a character and also scored a superb goal in one of the greatest ever cup finals.
