It’s an obvious and critical question. It’s one all Liverpool supporters have been asking themselves since the beginning of the season. Qualification for the Champions League, the only European tournament to be involved in, puts Liverpool back amongst the footballing elite plus it’s worth millions in additional revenue. I’m pretty sure a top four finish was the minimum target set by John Henry and Tom Werner at the beginning of the season. I mean they will have a new stadium to fill and pay for after all.

Robert Green made a really, really, bad goalkeeping error. He knows it, Capello knows it, we all know it. But Green wasn’t the cause of England dropping valuable points in their opening game of the World Cup on Saturday. The fact is England just weren’t good enough to beat a mediocre US team. Beside the inspirational England captain Steven Gerrard, he just keeps delivering time and time again, players like Shawn Wright-Phillips and Lennon were poor and Rooney’s name was hardly mentioned throughout the game. Plus, it was Heskey who made the worst mistake of the match by not burying his golden opportunity with only the goalkeeper to beat. Now you see why Liverpool sold him. Gerrard’s 4th minute goal should have provided the platform for England to push on and win the match comprehensively. However, this wasn’t the case as England failed to deliver. (more…)

OK is it just me or was any other Liverpool FC supporter thinking Michael Owen should have been given a chance to return to Anfield? What was the risk? Sir Alex Flippin Ferguson has got him on a free and a basic wage of £20,000 a week, granted with huge bonus potential, but only if he performs.
I quite fancied him playing alongside Torres and he would have given Liverpool great options up front both at home and in Europe.
Am I just being nostalgic and did Ferguson just pull off another coup?
Let me know what you think.
