When you lose one of the best players in your history you are bound to have a period of transition.

One such fan is Jon High who, prior to the game, had promised to get himself a commemorative tattoo if his beloved side finally tasted victory againaway to the Reds.

Welcome back, Liverpool. That was a short-lived renaissance, and all of a sudden we're back to defensive idiocy and a dearth of attacking creativity. You know, the issues that completely ruined the last campaign.
Pick your analogy: last season's 1-3 loss at Upton Park in September or Arsenal's 0-2 loss to West Ham on opening day.
So far it is looking like Petr Cech will be Arsenal's only high-profile signing of the season, and after our embarrassing defeat to West Ham it was looking debatable as to whether the predictions that he would gain us 12 points a season were to become true. It was not a very good start by [...]
