Letter: POST SOAPBOX - Peaked too soon.
I THINK Kuyt's popularity originated from his first Anfield appearance as sub, when he had a decent shot with virtually his first touch, and looked ready to uncork a blast at goal at every opportunity.
This aspect of his play has declined appreciably. He seems to be a journeyman player who tries hard but lacks inspiration and a touch of class.
His goalless spell is eroding his popularity with every game that goes by.
