- When that tall Unirea defender leap for their first goal, without any cover by LFC players - then only the game start to get some life. LFC played economically because Unirea decided to put 10 men in front of their goal keeper. By flooding the entire own half, they somehow have only one thing in their mind - to stop LFC from playing. But the surprised element is their fast advancing during the counter-attack. Thus the resulting corner and then the equaliser.
- However, our back are filled with experienced bunch. And no match for the Unirea. Pity them. Gerrard was hungry for goals. And the one that he scored, was powerful strike and a bit dangerous because two Unirea were trying to stop him which if he is late by a second, could see him injured instead. The skipper rounded off a convincing Europa League win with a 57th-minute strike to become Britain's highest scorer in Europe, eclipsing Alan Shearer's tally of 32 goals.
- Mascherano goal was superb. Especially from a guy who's main job is to stop the ball in the middle, not really scoring. Then of course, Babel who we have been asking a few questions about his ability, managed to score. Good for him.
- The remaining silly player we have to cope is David Ngog. Utterly useless. Can't stop the ball. Can't control the ball. Can't beat his marker. Didn't make any shot at all. He is one good dummy in the team. Simply because the opposition have to dedicate a defender to shadow him the whole time he is on the pitch and were conned when the real zest comes not from him, but other LFC players.
