It's fitness that counts says Kenny

These pre-season games are all about getting the players fit for when the real thing begins says Kenny Dalglish. Liverpool were beaten 3-0 by Galatasary in their latest pre-season game but again Dalglish says getting the players fit, as well as offering the younger players some vital experience, is what these games are all about. "I think they looked a bit sharper than us at the start of the game. It was the same as at the weekend in that we played a lot better in the second half than we did in the first half," said the King. "But the players worked hard and they'll benefit from the effort they put in. It won't do us any harm for the season ahead, but we've got to get ourselves a bit sharper, a bit more clued up and lively when we're not in possession of the ball. "I think the benefit is it's another game. They looked a bit sharper than us and are maybe a wee bit ahead of us. Their season was due to start but I think it's been put back for a number of days."
