Kuyt - The Truth!

Roeder went to see Holland defeat the Republic 4-0 in Dublin on Wednesday to, once again, check out international Dirk Kuyt. The striker was a second half substitute and didn't score in the match.

But Roeder and Freddy Shepherd were in no position to offer the 10m Liverpool put on the table.

It must have been like two kids with their noses pressed up against the window of a sweet shop, watching Liverpool run off with the goods.

Today Roeder tried to put on a brave face and say Kuyt was not the star of the show, but a youngster from Ajax making his debut put him in the shade. But it all meant nothing. A player he has tracked for months ended up a club with more money to spend, and that is it in a nut-shell.
