Just when there was good news on all fronts ...

Harry Kewell has targeted the first-leg tie in the Nou Camp against Barcelona in the Champions League for his long-nonanticipated return to playing first-team football for Liverpool.

Said Kewell: "I hope that I’m about three or four weeks away from being fully fit."

Take your time, Harry. Although, one added benefit of a Kewell return can be seen in Liverpool's last two glorious cup triumphs (Istanbul 2005, Cardiff 2006), the Reds went on to legendary, thrilling comeback victories after Kewell left injured early in the match. Perhaps he should start against Barcelona, even if he does have a gamey hamstring or foot problem?
