How Long Will This Go On!?

As entertaining as it is to watch a “top four” mid-table team implode from the board-room outwards, the novelty starts to wear off after seven league losses, 4 draws and the constant inability to see out a match without conceding in the dying minutes. It’s comparable to watching a donkey chase a dangling carrot down...

Oh Benitez, What A Mess!

Knocked out of the Champions League and Carling Cup not so long ago, inconsistent performances in the Premier League against second rate teams [here, here and here], a constant injury cloud over star players Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres and now an FA Cup exit to Championship side and Premier League hopefuls Reading! Oh Benitez,...
How Low Can The Reds Go!?

How Low Can The Reds Go!?

In my predictions, I suggested that with their mid-week win over Wigan, Liverpool may have turned a corner and things might start looking up for the team come the new year… um, it looks like they may have just hit a brick wall, real, real fast and Rafa doesn’t want to believe it yet. Sky...
Yes, It Get's Worse

Yes, It Get’s Worse

Seriously, Rafa. You should consider killing yourself… or simply walking away from Anfield. Sky Sports News reports: We will try to win against Arsenal and after that, we will see,” he told Sky Sports News. “We are really disappointed because we have conceded three goals in the Champions League in the last minute so when...

More Gloom For Gerrard And Co.

Liverpool’s world is slowly, but surely, caving in around them and not even John Cusack or floating arcs are going to save them from an imminent top four annihilation. Full cred to Blackburn as they just completed an awesome week of knocking Chelsea out of the Carling Cup and edging Rafa Benitez one step closer...
Europa League... Get Involved

Europa League… Get Involved

Well it’s official… Liverpool have hit a new low point. I mean I’d been “suggesting” it, but I didn’t actually think they would be playing in the Europa League. Goes to show, if you put your mind to something, sooner or later it’ll actually happen. Well guys, good luck and here’s hoping you can do...

Tit For Tatts

If anyone crazy enough thinks Liverpool and City have a chance of cracking the top four after a ridiculous performance such as this, there is still good news for you yet, you’re not the only delusional bastard walking the face of this earth! Goal.com If we play to our level we will be in the...

Predictions – 21st / 25th November

This weekend kicks off with a mid-table cracker that has media ass-whooping stamped all over it… cause you just know that, regardless of the outcome, both managers and every player on the pitch will come under intense scruitiny. Over recent weeks, City have fine tuned their skills of drawing matches into a fine art form...

Back To Business

Liverpool came out firing for this match. It was probably to shake off the embarrassing defeat in front of their home fans to Chelsea only days earlier… and what better way to do it than by embarrassing some other poor team instead… unlucky Blackburn. After the match, I’m assuming Rafa’s team talk probably went something...

Liverpool: Rotating out of control

I saw this in a movie once, although it took place in Somalia, some 20 years ago. What was meant to be a routine flight by the Americans, ended in a couple of their helicopters being shot out of the sky with several days of unrest to follow… 1 unexpected loss to Marseille, 1 draw...
