"Lacklustre" was the word used to the describe the first half on my mobile phone text update
service.Â "Unlucky" I can understand, but "lacklustre" - isn't that just a fancy way of saying
that we "couldn't be arsed" in the first half??Â Probably not the best attitude to take when
you've not won in the [.
Did we run over a whole sack of black cats? West Ham 0 - 1 L from a penalty in the 90th minute is
unlucky. It's unlucky because there was only one team that looked like winning in the last 15
minutes (which is usually when Liverpool realise that there's a game to [...]
Apparently, the Premier League should take a winter break in "respect" to the Africa Cup of
Nations, so that players are allowed to represent their countries without it clashing with their
club duties, according to Bitters' manager David Moyes. Where does respect enter into it? Why
doesn't Africa "respect" the Premier League and hold its [.
The Mancs get Arsenal at their place, and Chelsea get Huddersfield at Shitford Bridge. We get
Barnsley at Anfield.Â Any comments I've made about the FA Cup draw being fixed I would now like to
take back! In all fairness, Barnsley are doing well at the moment and I think we could sneak a win
or take [.
We chuckled when the first goal went in, to H&W after 7 minutes. After Lucas equalised, I thought
"here we go!", although it took us 27 minutes to break down the semi-professionals... The next goal
came shortly after, as expected. Unfortunately, it wasn't to Liverpool! The official report gives
it to Skrtel [.
What happened there? Started off slowly but eventually slipped into gear and started playing some
good football - the first goal was well worked and Yossi scored yet again; 1-0. 3 minutes of
madness in the second half later (after wasting the customary golden chances - mentioning no Kuyts,
I mean names), we're 2-1 down.
We were probably lucky to get to a replay but if the best teams can play awful and avoid defeat
then we're world class, as the first tie performance was abysmal. The first half here wasn't much
better, and Babel's opener on half time eased a lot of frustration, and was probably somewhat
fortuitous, as I [.
I hate Middlesbrough. The football club isn't that much better either. It's now 5 years since
Liverpool won there - and 4 years since we scored. Boro always turn it on against the big teams,
including us. And if this performance was anything to go by, we'll struggle to make the [...]
