    now we need 5th for certain’

    thats a bit harsh on Brad Jones like, he’s an OKAY ‘keeper. Only problem was he nearly got sent off as well!

  2. Have faith lads, the two good games Liverpoop have are 1.. against Everton (usually) and 2… Cup games. Have faith lads their win against Cardiff was unbelievable, they are geet jammy in big games.

  3. DJG-He did make some pretty good saves, I’ll give him that. But under the high ball against Yak he shat himself, and that could well have battered his confidence that he’d gained throughout the match….I know Cahill has had a poor season but you can guarantee he’ll be up there challenging him for any high balls…luckily keepers nowadays get free kicks when they’re just brushed..

    Still, he was lucky to get away with a yellow imo…Hope you’re right though! 😀

    thought the keeper did very well in the game, mind you that yak penalty(1st one) was shite. suppose we’ll see what kind of keeper he is with reina and doni out for a while 😆

  8. a couple good articles there fellas.
    Re HBA, there is a difference between ‘fit’ and ‘match fit’. Also HBA has improved his game all over the pitch. Before when he didn’t have the ball he was out of the game and seemed uninterested. Now tho he is transformed and defending and attacking like a demon. He is working twice as hard, not only for himself, but also for his team.
    Pardew deserves respect for the way he has managed to bring out the best in HBA.
    With the likes of ‘andymac’ running the show, I doubt we would even be top 10 this year, with a squad of disillusioned players all wanting away asap. Stick to the x-box fella. 😆

  9. As for the Champions Lge v Europa Lge debate, its a no brainer imo.
    There is so much kudos for getting in the CL, it is what all the top players are striving for, the big stage on which to perform and show off their talents to the world.
    EL doesn’t even come close these days.
    As for the financial rewards, again, it is well known now that EL brings in almost zero revenue compared to the outlay required to progress throughout the competition.
    EL would be good experience for the players, but takes it’s toll on the players as the season is extended back into the summer break. You need a larger squad to compete in the midweek games etc but the money to buy these extra players basically has to come from within the club.
    IMO we must strive for the CL, while we still theoretically have it within our grasp. Its certainly not the end of the world if we dont make it tho.
    My final thought is that EL is a good cup competition, so I fully expect Liverfool to win it yet again, to the detriment of their league position.
    I dont think we would win it, so would accept being dumped out after a few rounds, in order to concentrate on our bread and butter. ie the Premier League.
