So We Won’t Win The League This Year

anfield-stadium

Well, after last nights debillitating defeat to the  Wounded Lion’s of Newcastle United, we have to take yet another setback in our quest for sucess at Liverpool. Without Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher and an out of form Torres upfront, we looked a pale shadow of a team.

Losing 3-1 was hard to take as we were the better team for most periods of the game and we deserved at least a point to take away from St. James’ Park, but it was not to be.

We played well enough, with Raul Miereles and Lucas dominating the midfield but we were let down at the back by some poor marking for the first, second and especially, the third goal. Newcastle playeyed too well on the night for Liverpool to get a real look in.

The faults at the back I can understand but Fernando Torres did nothing upfront, he had a clear chance one on one with their keeper but he drove it straight at him instaid of lifting the ball over him as he was trained to do by Benitez. So we are stuck on 22 points and we are lucky teams above us havent taken advantage this weekend.

You can watch highlights of the game here.

    And we won’t win it in the next 5 years either! ManC are up there with Chelsea and ManU to stay. I believe that ManU will be bought by Qatar interests within the next 12/18 months and have a resurgence of cash tomaintain their dominance. Make no mistake they are dominant and have a confidence others lack. We need something very very special to claw back and I cannot see this on the horizon at this time.
