Pompey 2 - LFC 3


  1. THE first area I look into the team-sheet was who were Rafa's choice at the back. Daniel Agger's return is good but Dossina was maintained on the left-back. Immediately I feel... this will be a long night. At the front, knowing fully well that Torres is not really fit after that extra-time game last Thursday, I seems to guess correctly with the inclusion of Ngog to start the game. I am still a fan of him. A youngster, raw and none-robust player and yes, he still need time to adjust. I would say he had a decent game in the second half though his performance in the 1st half is best be forgotten.

  2. The five goal thriller is a bit too much but something you and me needed as a late-night orgams after last Thursday. I had to walk out and take a breather after the final whistle. Then lit a cigarette before going to sleep. It was exciting to the core. Last minute winning goal is always like that. Ask Everton about it. They still talking about it.

  3. Every UK newspaper claimed that Torres saved Rafa's neck. Why must they highlighted Rafa? Isn't it more appropriate to say Liverpool's neck, instead? Rafa did explained at-length the reason he left out all the three main-players of his - Kuyt, Alonso and Torres. It made the team that started last night look like Team B of Liverpool. Imagine if the game ended in Liverpool's defeat or a draw, obviously Rafa's neck will be hanged.

  4. Apart than that, I think Yousi Benayoun had a good game. Last night, he showed what he do best while at West Ham. Zig-zag the defenders. Benayoun is my man-of-the-match.

  5. If only Babel didn't do the Robbie Keane's act, the whole goal tally could have been different.

  6. Now to relax our mind. Let's go back to our real life. hehehe...

I already reserved my comment on my blog to blame Babel if we were on the lose side. We won it but I still blaming Babel for such missed of the year act. What a shame to watch so called good player to change feet just to touch the ball in to the empty goal. Arghh... Blame Rafa? maybe not because I'm quite amused by his line-up, mostly of his bravery to create the line-up.

Amused by his bravery? That is what you say when we won the game. You might be preparing another condemnation towards Rafa is we failed to get the 3 pointers last night. He is one scary-unpredictable-SOB-of-ours.

If Keane were still around, he would have equally missed the Babel's blunder (although his left foot was already planted to the ground when he misjudged the ball with his right)...haha! So many misses but I don't miss Keane at all.

from Khan's link
>>Just metres away, colleagues Howard Webb and Mike Dean were singing Liverpool anthem You’ll Never Walk Alone, unaware Bennett was letting slip the shameful secrets that will rock football.

it seem we have refs at our side..

Khan said...

Uncle Joe, I am just curious whether any Liverpool players were mentioned in the conversation. We could speculate the fact that our anthem was mentioned and not others (surely those guys sang more than one song la hehe), but then again, maybe I speculate too much
