Career

.Plessis plays as a holding midfielder, and started his career at Olympique Lyonnais.^ Yet he was rarely of any danger and it is hard to determine why he was chosen to start there when there are two right midfielders in the squad both of whom have been playing well.

^ No one, however, could have imagined that he would go as far as giving nineteen year-old midfielder Damien Plessis his first start.

.Plessis signed a three-year contract for Liverpool on the last day of the transfer window in August 2007 and initially played for the reserve team.^ Plessis signed a three year contract with Liverpool on the last day of the transfer window in August 2007.

^ Of course, if Liverpool have an such move lined up this year, we won’t know about it until it is done because the common element between those three transfers is that very little was known of either one of the players.

^ The tall Frenchman played for Gary Ablett’s reserve side during their League and cup double winning season of 2007/2008.

.Liverpool manager Rafael BenĂ­tez said of Plessis after having signed him, "He is a good player, big and strong, and we're sure he'll do well for us.^ "We knew when we signed him [from Lyon] that he was a good player.

^ If there’s one golden rule that should be followed by all Liverpool managers, it is that they shouldn’t try to liken their players to more famous counterparts.

^ The Hertha manager, Dieter Hoeness, said his club could not afford the Ukraine striker's transfer fee and salary, and Voronin said yesterday: "It looks like I'll be going back to Liverpool.

.He's only a young boy with plenty of time to work on his game but it depends on his progress how quickly he can force his way into the first team". Plessis made his debut for Liverpool on 5 April 2008 in the 1–1 away draw against Arsenal F.C.[3].^ He made his debut for the first team in a 1-1 draw against rivals Arsenal at the Emirates stadium on 5 April 2008.

^ He scored his first senior goal in Liverpool ’s 4-2 Carling Cup defeat at White Hart Lane in November 2008.

.Rafa BenĂ­tez described his performance by saying "Today was the debut for Damien Plessis.^ Damien Plessis has won our Man of the Match poll after his stunning debut against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

.We knew when we signed him that he was a good player.^ Fast and with good technique, he has been a constant threat on the left hand side of midfield showing signs that he could develop into a useful player for the first team.

^ A good player at reserves team level, Gerard Houllier had a real look at him and for a time he was a permanent fixture in the first team squad.

.He's played really well for the reserves, and to play as well as he did today in this stadium, it shows we are going in the right direction."^ He's played really well for the reserves, and to play as well as he did today in this stadium, it shows we are going in the right direction."

^ Yet he was rarely of any danger and it is hard to determine why he was chosen to start there when there are two right midfielders in the squad both of whom have been playing well.

^ Even so, however, Spearing has been playing well enough in the reserves to merit at least inclusion in the squads that faced Cardiff, Luton or Havant and Waterlooville in the cup competitions.

^ Even with the rest of the team doing poorly, he has played exceptionally well, certainly better than more experienced players.

^ True, the reserves league has become a joke where teams play too few games and often it is a case of kids against kids.

[7] He scored his first senior goal for the club in a Carling Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur on 12 November 2008.[8]
