Watching Gerrard's goal in the 2nd minutes is like being told of the ending of a Star Wars movie while you're just grabbing your first popcorn!... The suspense all gone but only for us to smile victoriously...
- May be the weather was the reason behind it. Or too much futsal for the last a couple of days - 2 hours on the Friday evening and a tournament I shouldn't be playing-in, for 4 hours on Saturday morning... then turned up for my 4pm shift in the office. Or could it be our goal was too soon for me ``to feel'' the game. It was as shocking to the West Ham fans and to most of us also when Gerrard managed to connect with Torres through ball to score one of his fastest goal ever! And for that, I found myself dozing off for the last 15 minutes. I managed to be awake when Babel scored before floating to my ZZzzzz... again and woke up again in the 90th minutes, pleading for the ref to finish the game. It was 2.30am.
- No, it doesn't mean that the game was boring. It was interesting enough. But for all the media propaganda of how much West Ham could be a threat for Liverpool (since the Upton Park club is themselves eyeing for the slot in the next season's Europa League), West Ham was a mediocre club. I am proud of Liverpool's display. But I was a bit exhausted. May be because of the weather. May be because too much futsal. hehehe...
- This could be the reason also that I only post my comment in the evening. Alarmed with the hot weather, I took my family to one of the shopping complex... to save my house's aircond, thus to utilise the mall's. And when I got back at 4pm, the first I did was took a shower and turned on the aircond (what?) and went for a quick nap.... until 6.30pm. hahaha... The heat is very much evident until now. 8.30pm... You guys, drink more water and avoid too much direct sunlight. You may get migraine if you refuse my advice. I even wore a cap while driving!
- I am not interested to discuss what could have happened if Liverpool play like this since last year, and not just last February. Some even mentioned of how much over-reliance Liverpool were on Gerrard-Torres combination. I hate to remind that we did clinch one of the memorable win against one of Spanish giant, Real Madrid WITHOUT both of them. It's true, when Liverpool wasn't experiencing free scoring moments like now, we tend to look at Gerrard for the inspirational goal. However, I must point it out now that Liverpool have produce some sterling performances when Gerrard was out injured. Okay, the result could have been different if Gerrard was on the field during the clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. I say there were nothing wrong on the front line. Not least with us having 2 goals on the first half. It was the backside who were the culprit. My point remain that the squad has developed in a better phase, even when Gerrard wasn't around. Of course, with him playing, you would get a shocking 76 second goal from him!
- As for Torres, we know that all the opponent's coach has studied his style of playing for many many hours. Thus the minimum requirement of 2 defenders to shadow him and a compulsory for the other 2 to be within a few meters in front of him, so to cordon his movement. Boa Morte had to use his hands to stop Torres, last night. I wouldn't mind Gerrard took the penalty kick, though it would be marvellous if Torres was given the opportunity to add to his goal tally this season.
- In a few minutes, Man. City will try to do us some favour if they can stop the scum. I'm not sure I'll be watching because there are pressing articles that I must complete and send tomorrow morning. Don't worry, I'll keep myself update on line. GO ROBINHO! (hihihi...YNWA)
