 Martin Skrtel missed out on regaining his Slovakian Footballer of the Year title this weekend.

The award was won by Marek Hamsik of Napoli, with Robert Vittek and Skrtel third.

Our No.37, who won the title in 2007 and 2008, said: "Congratulations - that is all I can say. Marek is a great footballer and a great leader and he fully deserved it.

"It is a great success for him since he is still very young. It is also good for our football. On the other hand I can promise him that I will do my best to continue to perform as good as I can."

So I was watching this Aston Villa game yesterday. I have to admit, the guys in AVFC are quiet good looking. So after the match, the come over to my laptop and right on my desktop I see Agger, Skrtel and Torres. And that's when I realize that man, Liverpool players are way better than a lot of players [I say that 'cause I find Fabregas, Villa, Alonso - technically majority of the Spanish team good looking too]. So here are the sexy Liverpool men

Martin Skrtel today revealed how he is relishing the prospect of coming up against club-mate Steven Gerrard at Wembley.

The Reds duo are set to go head-to-head as England meet Slovakia in an international friendly tomorrow in what will be the commanding centre-back's first appearance in front of the Twin Towers.
 
Skrtel admits he has already exchanged banter with the Liverpool captain, but acknowledges Slovakia will perhaps need an element of good fortune if they are to come away with a result.
 
"The match against England will be special to me," said Skrtel.
 
"To play against people like Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Crouch is a challenge for me and a good match.
 
"This is a friendly of much prestige for Slovakia. To play at Wembley generates an extra incentive and the squad is very much looking forward to it.
 
"During training my team-mates have asked me questions about the English players. I have told them what I know and asked for a little luck.
 
"Slovakia is a team that progresses game to game and this match is very important for us to learn from.
 
"We want to show a good level in London and show that for us this game is not a holiday.
 
"During the previous week I have spoken with my companions in Liverpool and what has become clear is that we won't help each other - this is the professionalism in each footballer.
 
"There has been a bit of joking in the dressing room between me and Stevie.
 
"He has been performing brilliantly for Liverpool and battles with him are very difficult."

Martin Skrtel is adamant Liverpool can still emulate his former club Zenit St Petersburg by ending their long wait for a league title.

The Slovakian was a key part of the Zenit side that won the 2007 Russian title - their first since 1984.
 
Liverpool's chances of following suit have not been helped by a run of three draws which has seen them drop to third in the Barclays Premier League.
 
But Skrtel told LFC Magazine: "Titles are not won in January. Whether we are first, second or whatever position, the pressure is still the same.
 
"There is still a long way to go and a lot of games until the end of the season.
 
"We still have to play Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Aston Villa – all the teams up around the top of the table.
 
"We know we can beat these teams and it is far from over yet.
 
"We've already beaten United this season, so we know we are capable of doing that again. But it's not just them we have to beat. If we want to win the league, we have to try and beat everyone we come up against."
 
Of his experience in Russia, Skrtel added: "Zenit hadn't won the league since 1984 and it was such a long time to go without being champions. In that respect it was even better when we won it.
 
"There is only one club in St Petersburg, so all the people in the city support the club. It was great to win the title for them after so long.
 
"It would be great to experience that feeling again here with Liverpool. Nineteen years is a long time to wait for another league title. It would be brilliant to help Liverpool win it again after all this time."

There's a wonderful 6-page Martin Skrtel interview/article in the new LFC magazine. Sadly, I don't have a scanner, and the artice is long, but here are some of the best quotes:

He talks about the tackle which gave him his injury: "You have to be brave and put yourself in danger. I did, and I paid the price. But even as I was sitting in the dressing room when my team-mates came back, I knew that my tackle had been worth it. I heard the noise from the crowd and I knew we'd won the game. I'd make the same tackle a hundred times again if it helped us achieve the same result." <3

About his comeback: "At the moment I am looking at the games against Arsenal and Hull for a comeback. I'm targeting the middle of December. [...] We will just have to wait and see, be patient, and hope for the best. But I won't be back until I feel that I'm ready."

About Daniel Agger: "I'm glad he's fit again and playing very well for Liverpool. He's my friend, a good friend, and we room together when we are on away trips. He was always nice to me when I moved here and helped me settle. He had a terrible season with an injury last season so I am as happy as everyone else that he is back in the team and playing at a high level again."

The article also addresses his English, saying that it's really good now, and that the whole interview was conducted in English. Here's a quote for the LOL:

The interview was conducted entirely in English. Word perfect English at that. (Including a word, offered involuntary, that had probably been learned in the dressing room from Carra, which made his face go red and prompted unneccessary and profuse apologies.)

About LFC: "I'm very happy here at Anfield. [...] The Liverpool fans are one of the best in the world."



Gah, I have so much love for him. I WANT HIM BACK!!!!
