LFC 3 - Newcastle 0

Without much publicity, Kuyt has been a goal-scoring machine of late. The Newcastle goal was his 11th in the Premier League and 3 in The Champions League this season. Add another 7 for Netherlands = 21.

  1. I'm not sure if any of you are feeling the same with what I felt now with the win last night. A bit of anxiety! Can't categorised it as a joy, since the win is at the moment only confirmed us at No.2 on the League while our target is still on the No.1 slot itself. Is it a foregone conclusion or a slight chances to clinch it away from Man.U? Let's do the the speculative analysis: Man.U is meeting Arsenal soon. Based on the kids performances now, Cesz Fabregas and Co. possibly could muster a surprised, just like they did on us. Like Rooney, that is the game where we - LFC Fans - will be rooting and cheering Arsenal. and we need Man.U to lose 2 games. Or lose 1 and draw 1 and we can win by goal difference. Today, the goal-gap is 3 goals. This week, Man.U have to shuffle the squad. One in Champions and one in the League. We know if they use all their superpower: Rooney, Ronaldo, Tevez ... that would be farewell for any of their opponent. But Berbatov is a player who can't go physical so... there is always a possibility there to really take advantage of the different nature of the superstar at Odd Deadfort.

  2. Coming back to last night's game, I must say Joey Barton played really well before he went for a stupid two-footed tackled on Alonso. Well... never mind. Barton has been a controversial figure all year long. The worst part about this fella is that he is not only hated on the pitch for his crazy decision-making (though he can play quite okay) but he is also somewhat a strange character off the pitch. Thank God Alonso didn't incur a more serious injury. If not, this column will be dedicated to condemn and cursed Joey Barton.

  3. Do you feel pity to Alan Shearer? Liverpool win last night went to the 2nd tier of almost every UK newspaper that I read. It was more on Shearer. There were many special reports, focusing on his supposedly-save-by-neck job for Newcastle. Even the Kops taunted him in Anfield which he took it in good humour. For that, we should admire his gentleman approach. In fact, during his playing days, I must admit... he was the magnet for me to watch the Newcastle game and those days, the squad was not bad at all. Today... hmmm... the way they play last night, they shouldn't be in Premier League.

  4. What about Michael Owen? It's a pity for such a player to be in that poor squad. He's hair was big and I think he has gain some weight, too. What if... what if Rafa take him to Anfield next season?

Miracles do happen. If Istanbul is telling us something, it says that it is not over until it is really over.

But miracles do not occur in regular manner.

Err bro..one lose and one draw not enough for us la..they would need to lose at least two games from the four remaining, whilst we need to win all three to equal the points. Then the points tally will be equal at 86. Only then goal difference comes into play.

Owen? He can play for the scums for all I care. Still fuming by the way he left LFC for so-called greener pastures...

aisehhh... my mathematic wrong ka...? haahaha... No wonder Rafa said he still believed the scum will make ``2 mistakes''...

Singh - miracles were ordained on us in 2005. May be 2009 too soon?

Yadayada - We do have sentimental value towards our former prodigy though KHAN is a bit in a unforgiven mood. hheeheh

if we win all three and MU lose 2 or draw 3 we'll definitely win on goal diffrence.. we have a 3 goal advantage at the moment, so if they lose 2 that will give us at least 5 goals ahead (assuming MU lose by 1 nil for both matches) and since we have to win our last three games we'll be ahead by another 3 (1-0 for each win)..That makes it an 8 goal advantage at least and MU will not probably be able to overcome this in 2 the other 2 matches left..if they draw three, then live will have a 6 goal advantage and MU need to win their last game by 7 goals...this is the worst case scenario but then this is merely speculative as MU are still ahead on points with a game in hand..so better to take it one game at a time..

so the bottom line is MU have to drop 6 points and the rest will be taken care of..
