Anfield Banter: Anderson tidbit, A new God in Wales, Hansen earns his keep, & I guess it's up to Insua

* Paul Anderson, our 18-year-old barn burning winger who is on loan to Swansea, has scored three times in as many matches. The pacey prospect has nice article written about him here which includes a lengthy interview.

* It's too bad Swansea is in League One and Cardiff is in the Championship, as Robbie Fowler has officially joined the Bluebirds, but there's little chance we'll get to see him face off with Anderson. Fowler said the reason he chose Cardiff over other suitors was because he wanted to win the Championship with them and bring them back to the Premiership.

* Martin Hansen, whose double bogey cost us a pair of goals against Wrexham a couple of weeks back, saved a crucial penalty to reserve a 0-0 draw at a Liverpool XI vs Peterborough testimonial friendly for long serving keep Mark Tyler. The Liverpool squad was mainly made up of reserve and youth players. What's surprising is that Anthony Le Tallec played for us. I wish I could have watched this match because it also was the debut of Ryan Crowther.

* Finally, with Masche's Argentinian side embarrassed in the Copa final by Brazil and Harry Kewell's Socceroos unceremoniously eliminated by Japan in the quarters of the Asian Cup, it's now up to wonder boy Emiliano Insua to bring home some silverware this summer. His U20 Argentinian squad play in the final of the U20 World Cup today against the Czechs. Our 18-year-old left back, who is on loan to us from Boca Juniors, has played every minute of every match so far and from what I've seen is playing well.
