Weekend action


RE: Wigan v LFC


Another round of matches & the signs are increasingly alarming fer our beloved Reds as we struggled to overcome Wigan at the JJB stadium. Torres was restored to the starting XI but all the hype & pressure surrounding him probably affected his performance as he contrived to miss three fooking glorious chances.

Yes, our saviour fer the day was Yossi who played a blinder v Reading but was left out fer this game. Rafa's rotation system is clearly not working as none of the players seem to be able to gel or read each others game. Chaotic, messy & shambolic is how best to describe yet another listless performance.

One suspects some players are getting irritated as they are dropped after putting in a great performance (eg Yossi out, Aurelio in?!?). Only saving grace is we got all three points to stay within touching distance of the front runners & that Wigan themselves were equally wasteful in front of goal or we could have gone home with fook all (especially if the ref had given em a pen & allowed their goal to stand).

All this on the 26th anniversary of the passing of the great Bill Shankly. Wonder what he must've thought watching from above? Probably buggered off to go watch the Arsenal . . .

RE: Portsmouth v Reading

7-4!!! The proverbial pesta gol or what . . .

RE: West Ham v Arsenal
Someone has got to stop this Cesc blokey . . .
RE: Birmingham v Man Utd

Another 1-0 to the Mancs . . . this is beginning to get slightly irritating.

RE: Chelsea v Fulham

Bets fer Avram to be gone before X'mas, anybody?

PS: I am also getting a bad feeling bout Marseille's visit to Anfield on Thurs morning & have a niggling suspicion a certain Djibril is gonna score against us . . .

PSS: Just as I said how I wanted to avoid getting Cardiff in the next round of the league cup . . .

haha...cardiff it is...Fowler will be back...and before that...Cisse will face Liverpool...

it is getting common these days for ex-players to face the Reds isn't it?

Liverpool don't seem to be playing well...but no difference with the rest: Chelsea, M*n U*d and Arsenal...

Okay, Arsenal got that Cesc on form...but I don't think any top 4 teams are particularly firing...

Surprise team so far is still Man City of course...and also Tottenham at the other end...:S

International break is here again...let's hope Liverpool players will stay off the innjury list and come back clean!

Glad to hear you are back "Mr Sober"!

Anyway, I am so sick of hearing this fooking "Rotation" policy and Rafa's 1001 excuses for it! Play the best team! I think we shd all try and come up with the best eleven for each game, assuming all players are fit. Here is mine :

Reina, Finnan, Carragher, Agger, Arbeloa, Riise, Gerrard, Mascherano, Benayoun, Torres, Kuyt.

There it is! Mr Rafa, try playing this same team 3 games in a row and see what the results are like!

Ah! Back to your pessimistic self. Glad ya back mate. I for one thought last nite's match was "entertaining" - nearly tear all my hair out when we missed so fooking many chances.

Both team didn't deserved to win it in all honesty, fooking comedy of missed chances. The peno debate, clearly one for us in the Hyypia off the ball incident while the one involving Gerrard's hand is touch and go. It's clearly unintentional, but then again have seen penos given for way lees than that.

Glad Shanks was looking down on us when Benayoun scored that beauty! 3 points in the bag although the team is not firing at full capacity. Still in touch and things can only get better.

To quote what Stevie G said yesterday:

"There are 60-65 games... so it is impossible to ask the players to play in every game. We have got to trust Rafa."

Playing the best team is a great idea, but if we get all our best players injured then it's gonna be trouble.I know Rafa's not perfect, he does make mistakes cause he's just human after all. But bear in mind that he's the one who'd brought Liverpool into much greater heights recently compared to what Roy Evans and Houllier combined had done (all that on shoestring budget too). So for me, I still put my money on Rafa to bring us the title. His ways could seem mysterious or baffling at times but stupid he is not.

Keep the faith guys.
