Wondering why Liverpool FC are flying right now? Shoving goals in left right and center over such heady opponents as Manchester United and Real Madrid? Is it Rafa's tactics and clever system of rotating his players? Is it Torres and Gerrard?

Nope, apparently it's all because of Xabi Alonso's 'classic movie nights'.

The Liverpool middy has been holding regular movie nights at his fancy home. The evenings are said to be key to the squads current team spirit. Alonso revealed that the reds favorite flick is Cassablanca. United fans might say it should be current DVD release 'Choke'.

Here's looking at you Kuyt

Other titles that may be popular at Xabi's pad...

The Night of the El Zhar

Raging Bab-bull

The Ngog-father

Reina Man

Ngog with the wind

Babel without a cause

Singing in the Reina

The Bad and the Benayoun

Mr Degen goes to town

Arbelo-a the Sea

The Accidental Torres-t

Lame I know. You can do better. Leave 'em in the comments.

"From the Hyypia"
"In the Kuyt"
"Leiva Las Vegas"

My favorite, though, is a French film: "Le Cavalieri", aka "The Škrteľ Chaser"

Phil: in a remake of Annie, would Robbie Keane play the part of the sad, tap-dancing orphan?

I don't think so. Not nearly enough pointing and shouting in that role.
