In a result-orientation world like the English Premier League, no matter how good or you could have control the game for 90 minutes but if you don't score goals - all of this means nothing. It is the same as wasting our time. Thus the failure of Liverpool to score and to win the game is soooooo disheartening. Instead of 3 points lead, we now leading the chart with only extra 1 points. What a waste.
Should we play the blame game? Was it Keane so horrible a player - we should be demanding Rafa to sale him off next month - and replace him with Heskey! Or was it Gerrard played like a bloody fool the whole time? He was so determined that the fate of the team is in his hands and refuse to pass the ball to others - who were better positioned in the box to score.
On the opposition team's tactic, yes Zola had one thing in his mind. To get a point. How? Defending and trying to go for sucker-punch in the counter-attack with Bellamy as a solo forward. Bellamy had at least 2 chances to surprise its former club.
We have discuss this aspect before. How do you break a team who came over to Anfield with a one purpose only that is to defend? They'll sit tight. They put may be a bus, may be a train in front of its goal post. That's what West Ham did stoutly. Remember Zola is not a stupid Italian. Liverpool seems to be lost in tactician to penetrate this kind of game.
Another blank. Another draw. Results like this really stink. And spoil your day.
I am soooooo............. Pissed-off !!!!!
