It's Liverpool today in the FA Cup and this is a game of huge importance for a number of reasons. I don't know exactly how many so I won't make this a numbered list, but:

  • We went to Anfield last weekend and afterwards we had to admit, That's a paddlin'
  • The FA Cup remains a very real trophy chance for us this season
  • Revenge for the paddlin'
  • A good result is also needed to lift the mood which is, after the paddlin', somewhat subdued
  • With Bayern coming on Weds, we could do with the confidence boost of a win
  • We must spare people from being blinded by Brendan Rodgers shiny new teeth
  • Do not want to see Sturridge do that celebration
  • Skertl's 'Oh' face is scary and disturbing, please no more Skertl 'Oh' face

And others besides but I can't think of them.
