Owen benched and Liverpool win

Liverpool defeated AK Graz 2-0 in the first leg of the Champions League qualifier last night, both goals scored by Captain Stevie G, who pretty much bossed the entire match (but then, what else is new?).

By all accounts, we played great. However, it seems the attacking partnership of Cisse and Baros was not working too well.

And Owen watched the whole game from the bench.

What a conundrum our poor Rafa is facing at the moment.

Do we sell Owen, and hope that Cisse and Baros will eventually click in the very, very near future?

Do we keep Owen, and hope that he signs a new contract, and forms a devastating attacking partnership with whoever he’s paired with upfront?

What to do, what to do……?
