A matter of luck

Looking back at the start of the season (I know it has only just begun and we haven't played that many games but allow me to indulge in it) and especially after the departure of Alex Song, at that time I really thought that Francis Coquelin would be a confirmed starter. It's no rocket science that he is one who could play in a similar role to the one vacated by Song.

Much has been spoken and written about Liverpool's wafer thin striker line up for the current season. Luis Suarez has been particularly wasteful in front of the goal and Fabio Borini hasn't shown any resourcefulness either. To add to their compounding woes, their pony-tailed striker Andy Carroll has moved to West Ham on loan (with Big Sam at the helm, it's a match made in heaven).
