STAND UP & REVIVE YOUR LIVERPOOL SPIRIT


  1. There was a shocking revelation, there was a video in YouTube and there was a follow-up story on the possibility for the FA to ban the ref for allowing that stupid goal. That summed up our demised in the challenge for our 20th Premier League. I have to agree the hard facts that it will be tough for us to unsit Man.U or who ever at the top now. Four losses is a bit too much. Sitting at no.8 in the league, albeit some would say - the night's still young - but to wait for others to falter is one dangerous game that we have experienced bitterly last season. We were hoping and hoping that Man.U would stumbled but the likes of Ryan Giggs & Ronaldo ensured that the winning streak lasted til the end. So we lost by a game and a half = 4 lousy points.

  2. And that was last season with only 2 lost but a jupiter of draws. This season we yet to register any serious draws but 4 losses is a more devastating condition that we have to endure!

  3. I will remain in a positive mood, though I had to resort to a character-from-the-sopranos last night when I changed the TV channel from ESPN to RTM1 and challenged one loud mouth next to my desk to shut up or my fist will do it!

  4. I have analyse and read with care the article written by our friend, one Ayu KL (don't know if this a nickname for a girl or boy because Ayu is a girly name but I doubt any girl could write in such a way about the proposed sacking of Rafa). Obviously, the article received a massive reaction from both sides. The conservative blocks (similar like me) prefer not to align ourselves to the idea. Of course, Ayu KL has his/her own strong points too. But personally, I think Rafa should be left alone, at least until the end of the season.

  5. We do question his tactics and choice of players. I was surprised he chose a new kid in the middle together with ever-lovable Lucas. The absence of Mascherano until 20mins left could be understood as a precaution since the little monster just returned from a long journey backhome (a glory match as Argentina managed to qualify regardless how bad they have perform under the legendary Maradona up to now!). We see that when Mascherano came in, he not only stopped many many runs by the speedy Sunderland players but also trigger some exciting penetration into the penalty box. That left for the forwards to answer why they couldn't finish the job properly.

  6. That is easy to answer. The forwards that we have in the absence of Torres - are craps! Voronin may be a better player to be position behind the main striker, whereas David Ngog is so weak. He was easily subdued by the Sunderland defenders. He need to be more agreasive. More bravery. But that was it. The class gap between Torres and the rest of the strikers are so huge. While Torres can easily confirmed within the excellent groups of Ronaldo, Messi, Drogba, Henry and Villa... strikers like Voronin, Ngog, Babel belongs to a group of Emile Heskey, Bent, Keane or Owen.

  7. I wish Rafa would find a better 2nd striker for Torres next January.

totally agree with you on that...
it was proven time and time again, if Torres is out or having a day-off, Liverpool have absolutely not enough quality to replace him...
i don't see what does Benitez sees in Ngog...
and it perplexed me to see him sent Nemeth on loan...
Nemeth have game intelligence and have good movement plus good game reading, something Ngog lacks...
Ngog isn't physical, and he's not pacy either...
That leaves us with who?
Babel?
We know he only shows us flashes of brilliance, but NEVER consistent...
Our shortcoming, is sadly, lack of depth in squad...

simply, we are not good enough. The players save for a few, suck big time.
Lyon should provide answer whether we can bounce back in time for MU next week.That too is not a guarantee.

Lucas+ Spearing= suicide.
Forget Bebal, Voronin and Ngog. Their place is elsewhere, not EPL.

..but Rafa has already spent 250m on players since he took over as manager..and where are we now? are we closer to the winning formula?

Gerrard and Carragher have been the spine of Liverpool all these years,but age is slowly catching up with them. But who has Rafa unearthed to replace these two aging players? It seems after 5 years, there is no one player capable to replace them. Fact is Rafa does not have a long-term plan for Liverpool.

Why is Rafa still with Liverpool? His is one of a marriage of convenience with the owners. Rafa knows that he can always blame the owners should he fail as the manager. He can always play up that sentiment to hide his failures because he knows the owners are no angel either. IMHO, both Rafa and the owners should go.

Where did you get that 250M figure from?
