I TOLD YOU SO! is what I wrote after Fenerbahce match......
Looking at both of the teams last night, before the big games in the Champions League , both teams defense and goal keepers looked really bad!..... Let me say it again, Big teams need a good goal keepers!....Did you see Hakan Arikan ,yesterday on second goal!.... he dropped the ball, on a cross and Semih scored the second goal....give me a brake!.....this was another factor, why Besiktas lost yesterday, besides the referee Ismet Arzuman. Fenerbahce did not deserve to win the match yesterday......

Striker Lisandro Lopez scored a late header to give Porto a 2-1 win over Olympique Marseille to move atop of the UEFA Champions League Group A while Liverpool recorded an 8-0 win over Besiktas on Tuesday.
Israel international Yossi Benayoun scored a hat-trick for Liverpool, winners of the Champions League in 2005 and runners-up last season.

Liverpool, who failed to win any of their opening three games, could not afford to drop more points against the Turkish club, who beat them 2-1 in Istanbul last month.

Peter Crouch and Benayoun scored in the first half to pave the way for a torrent of goals after the break.

Benayoun added two more, with other goals from captain Steven Gerrard, substitute Ryan Babel with two, and Crouch his second.

Besiktas have only won once away from home in 10 Champions League fixtures.

Crouch opened the scoring after 19 minutes. However, it was Benayoun who was the star of the show. He opened his tally in the 32nd minute by volleying in a cross from Voronin, and scored twice in three minutes to register his first hat-trick for Liverpool.

Gerrard then blasted home the fifth before Babel came off the bench to help himself to two goals in three minutes.

  1. I was at anfield to see besiktas for only the 2nd time in the uk. Last ime was at the Leeds United game which we lost 6-0. From the kick off our players didnt seem confident with the ball. They were so easily robbed of the ball. The goals all game from errors of some sort or other. I can only remember one good shot on the liverpool goal. The defence weren't any better than they were in the Leeds game. Again the goalkeeper didnt have a good game.
    I will always support BJK no matter what the results. Going back to the Gordon Milne era would this sort of result have happened ?
    Looking at the 2 teams playing i would say liverpool were only slightly the better team.
    May i just add the BJK fans didnt give up shouting and chanting for their team.
