I present you with a simple form of "something to do". Below are ten YouTube videos i have picked out (excuse some of the quality of images, i hunted down the best clarity one's i could find),10 goals scored by past or present Liverpool players on the international stage. There's a couple from the likes of Steven Gerrard & Fernando Torres, a golden oldie from "God" and that famous Michael Owen goal, even if you have had a change of opinion on him lately there's no denying that was a top goal.
