HooYa BABBEL!!!!!

From Shanklygates....


Babbel to make comeback next week

By James Carroll
Date: 4/5/2002

Markus Babbel will make an emotional comeback next week, when he takes part in a a testimonial match for former German international team-mate Thomas Helmer on Tuesay night.


Babbel has missed almost all of the season due to a serious life-threatening virus but he is on the road back to a full recovery and could make a return for Liverpool on the last day of the season against Ipswich Town at Anfield.

In the meantime, Babbel has been invited to play for the German Euro 96 reunion team against Bayern Munich at Bielefeld. Babbel was, of course, a key member of the German squad that lifted the European Championship trophy at Wembley in 1996.

The game will be a good chance to assess the fitness of the defender.

Wonderful Markus. I thought we will get to see him at Anfield tonite (against Blackburn) but guess he will not.

No doubt, he will be there against Ipswich.:)

The game against Ipswich is a very important one for us!
I am not underrating him, but should Babbel be allowed to play in that game? :confused:

For me, his coming back to his fitness is a great news, but rely our defence line on him would be a bad idea...

If he is already fully fit, I think it's better for him and us to wait for next season to see him again on the field! :)

That's sad.:( Perhaps GH is not used to yielding to sentimental pressures. But he did give captaincy to McManaman during his final few games with us, did he?

paw;)
