Match Review: West Brom 0 Liverpool 2

Liverpool extended their unbeaten run to five games in the Premier League and won their first in three as they comfortably overcame West Brom at the Hawthorns. There was some frustration that the Reds didn't fully capitalise on their superiority in the game and run up a big score, but after a number of game this season in which their profligacy cost them points, the most important factor was that they simply claimed all three.

"You're just a cheap Gareth Bale," they chanted at Windsor Park early in the second half, referencing Ronaldo's new teammate at Real Madrid who may or may not have broken the world record for the highest transfer fee that once undisputedly belonged to Ronaldo.

Things Currently Annoying Me In Football....

Its been a while since I have posted anything remotely interesting so here is brief summary with all things that are annoying me in football these days

Roberto Mancini





I have a lot of respect for Roberto for the following reasons;

1) He was a brilliant striker
2) He brought madcap Mario Balotelli to England
3) No matter what the weather or situation he looks so suave in that scarf and coat you just cant help but admire his style (in a non homosexual way : but if you look at him that way thats no problem)

However, his recent whinge that he would struggle to fill his subs bench for the Man Utd game was simply laughable.
