Man Utd’s leaked starting line-up vs Liverpool FC
With Liverpool’s up and down start to the season it would be just too easy to begin looking for faults. Kenny signed eight new players during the summer transfer window and sold or loaned out 16 players.
Of those eight, five have featured in the first six
games of the season which makes for radicle changes in the squad.
You can even argue that Carroll and Suarez are still relative newcomers,
so does it make sense to think that they would all gel quickly and perform at the highest level from the opening game of the season? It’s just not going to happen.
Better to judge how Liverpool have performed and where we sit in the table in January or, as Kenny might say, next May.

Carroll still not fit?
When Liverpool made the quick decision to invest the majority of the proceeds from the sale of Fernando Torres on Andy Carroll I think most of us
were delighted that such a powerful centre forward had been acquired.
It spoke clearly of Liverpool’s intention to
invest in the best (dare I say British) young talent even though they weren’t fully proven.
Injury kept Carroll on the sidelines for the first few months and when he did play he wasn’t at his best.
Dalglish admitted it was probably unfair to play him as they did before he had fully recovered from injury. Read the rest of this entry »
A good mate of mine forwarded me an excellent email from a good mate of his which listed the players he felt should be let go this summer because a)
they just aren’t good enough and b) so Kenny has more money to spend in the summer. A timely and important topic in my book.
I won’t name the good fella who wrote the email but you can find him in one scene in the documentary “One Night in May”
right in the middle of the stands as it fades from a profile of Ancelloti to the Liverpool fans behind.
So here’s his list of players who should go and why: Read the rest of this entry »
Delighted that Maxi Rodriguez got his 1st hat-trick as Liverpool thrashed Birmingham City 5-0 at Anfield on Saturday. Maxi took his goals well and showed a real poachers instinct. Still the man-of the match was Luis Suarez.
His movement and skill on and off the ball were simply excellent and he was
involved in almost every forward move.
Both Flanagan and Robinson thoroughly impressed again
with assured displays that belied their youth and seeing Joe Cole come on and score the fifth
was great to see but with all the transfer talk of up to 22 potentials
deals both in and out of the club it seems doubtful Cole will be with Liverpool again next season.
With Roy Hodgson’s West Brom getting a fine 2-2 draw at
Spurs that chase for 5th spot becomes a real possibility even though
Tottenham have a game in hand but Liverpool now have a superior goal difference, + 12 vs +8. The game against them at Anfield on May 15th should be something special.
LFC thoughts of the week: Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool, The Youngsters, Dalglish Contract, Comolli – one of the signings of the season?
Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool
Having been a Liverpool supporter for over 30 years
this must rank as one of the greatest fight-backs from the jaws of certain defeat I’ve ever seen.
Once Van Persie had scored that penalty in the 8th minute of extra time most of us (all of us?) thought it was over, but not this Dalglish team.
They kept going with grit and determination and forced their way back into the game. Read the rest of this entry »
The best Rafa, Gerrard, Carra, Owen and Crouch impersonations you’ll ever see!!
