Fooking rubbish!!!

As you probably already know, I'm a huge fan of Liverpool Football Club. I have been one since i was 7 years old. Sad to say, our recent performances have left me nauseated. One would think that with the new owners and the arrival of new stars, the club was destined for success. Afterall, we did reached the European Cup final and ended up 3rd in the EPL last season with a 'not so strong' team.

This season sees the introduction of Torres, Voronin, Babel, Youssi, etc,etc.... Pre-season match results were encouraging with all the strikers doing what they are paid for. However it is sad to note that we lost in the final of the EPL Asia Cup to Portsmouth on penalties. On the bright side, we were the better team on the day and Pompey had good ol' David James to thank.

The first few matches to the season including the champions league qualifiers were promising. Kuyt was ever hardworking, Voronin scores at ease, Torres' sheer pace was brilliant to watch, Pennant, Babel and Youssi terrorised the flanks, Gerard took control of midfield, Masherano and Momo kept attackers at bay and our mean defense has NOT conceded any goals from open play in the league this season.

With all this in play, we were winning games with scorelines of 3-1 and 6-0 and for the first time in a while, we were perched at the summit of the EPL. It felt good to know that we are ahead of everyone with a game in hand!!!!

Then it happened, the fooking stupid curse. Do you guys remember the last time LFC was sitting on top of the EPL? It was during GH's time, the season (or 2) after the trebel. After sitting at the top of the EPL... we went on a 10-13 match winless streak! GH got so desperate that he resulted in long balls for Owen to chase.

The last few LFC matches were painful to watch. Firstly, we couldnt score against Portsmouth at Fratton park though we had loads of opportunity to bury Pompei.. On the plus side, at least we played and attacked. Voronin hit the woodwork a couple of times and Torres nearly won it for us. To be fair, i wasnt too disappointed for we played well.

Then came Porto. I missed the match but apparently we were outclassed. If it werent for the clinical header of Kuyt, we would've lost the match (deservedly so). Then came the Birmingham game at Anfield. That was truly painful to watch. Though the blues had 10 men behind the ball at all times, the 'mighty reds' could not come close to penetrating! We did have a few chances to score, but didnt take them.

Last week we beat Wigan at the JJB. I missed that match as i fell asleep at kickoff. Apparently we werent that great, in fact we were lucky and grateful to the brilliance of Youssi. However, i did watch this morning's match. A match which I predicted a 3-0 scoreline for the home side. Not a bold prediction considering the fact that we do have a mean defense, fresh strikers, talent on the flanks, generals in the midfield, undefeated in all competitions, 4th spot in the league, won our carling cup match, and our opponents have a new manager, doing poorly in the french league, with a negative lineup of a lone striker and a packed midfield which means the french team has too much respect for the reds and came to Anfield fighting for a draw. However your humble narrator was amazed as to how organised they were compared to our crappy team of stars. They deservedly won the match. If Torres had scored at the death, it would've been cruelly unfair to them. I was disgusted at the way we played as we kept losing the ball with the greatest of ease.

Why are we playing so badly? did the international break really fucked us up? rafa's rotation system not working to plan? WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY????? ARRGGGGGG!!!!!

Is our season over????????

i think we're just giving the rest a chance to get some points.... we wanna keep this season entertaining... no point winning week in and week out... its all part of Rafa's rotation policy, i.e. rotate the top 4 in the EPL... when its time to catch up.. .we'll do so in awesome fashion... we like the challenge... like conceding 3 goals....
