    Liverpool are being undone by poor management decisions. Look at that starting XI and you’ll see why we are considered to be goal-shy. At some point we gotta grow some balls and go for it. What a joke this is turning into….seems throwing money at it, by bringing in new players, is the only way to solve this problem.

  2. Rob – they have thrown money at it and they did bring in new players.

    Another Adebayor goal disallowed for offside when he was onside. That makes at least 3 Ade goals incorrectly disallowed just in the games I’ve seen this season. It’s starting to get more than a little ridiculous.

    Feel sorry for Spurs fans. Between yesterday and the Stoke game bad officiating has cost them top spot. To be fair, Man Utd fans might say same about home game vs Newcastle.

    Dalglish was exactly what Liverpool needed after the Hicks & Gilette’s fiasco. I won’t defend “The Owners”, but they did set them up nicely with the sponsorship of Standart Chartered. Yes that was their deal, and I’ll go as far to say that Rafa had as much to do with the demoralization of the club and fan base as they did.
    Anyways, Dalglish has done his job but now he”ll prove inefficient. Not only in game management but also in player transfers.
    Suarez is out and Carroll can’t start. Proves the waste of money. Also any club who still depends on Bellamy as much as Liverpool does, is not a title contender. Maybe not even European caliber.

    Arsenal again shows no, huh huh, fortitude. Wenger once again gives his boys an out and blames a soft penalty for loss. Oh yeah, Szczesny had a bit of a stinker, no?

    Chelsea with a quiet win at home? Essien made an appearance as well. I didn’t get to see it, so how did he look. It’s shame that his last few years have been injury riddled.

    Wenger should be taking notes from SAF’s press conferences. SAF doesn’t mind ripping into his star player or players when they don’t perform. Excellence is asked of and received. And by the way should Rooney sulk and even leave, he’s not the player everyone thinks he is.

    Spurs for me have enough quality to easily earn a Top 4 spot. The question I have is; Shouldn’t Bale be further along? At times I think that the team does him a disservice by giving him the ball and stand around watching. At other times he just isn’t able to instill his will on a game. Managers fault or players?

    Just because of Hughes I hope that QPR gets relegated. I want him to fail and any team that lets a pompous ass that hasn’t won a thing dictate an interview, deserves to go down.
