The Greek's Tragedy...

It's easy to put a blame on Kyrgiakos over the lost to West Brom at the Hawthorns over the weekend. Well, both goals seem to be the Greek's blunders, failing on both occasions to deal with the hardworking Baggies front-liner.

Yeah, from the very first 25mins, we seem dooms with the injuries both Johnson & Agger. But we didn't loose the game because we lost the two players or Kyrgiakos's blunders. I would say, in my opinion, we lost because West Brom is a better team.. they seem hungrier and their players really work hard. Credits to them.

I guess it's time to admit we don't have a good linkage between the defence and midfield, and midfield with strikers. Many teams said they want to play like Barcelona, with an organised set-up & creative midfielders.. I don't expect us to play like that if our lineup are the likes of Lucas, Spearing & Meireles. Hell NO!.. If Dalglish is to depend on these three, I guess we are going no where next season. 

Of course, Lucas is never my favourite since the day he became a Liverpool's player. Not that he is not Brazillian enough, but they way he played. He is too slow to react, mind alone his creative play. I couldn't understand people keeps talking about his passing ability and his stats on completed passes. That's a total rubbish. And I still couldn't understand despite his lacking, he survived three managers. And lately, his contract extension really disappoint me, unless he really show some improvement under Dalglish!

Now, we lost another 3 points. Should we won we might have closing the gap with Spurs by 2 points. Nevertheless, Carragher was trying to be positive saying the fight is not over yet. Of course mathematically, it's still possible for us to be to there. Though it's difficult, I would like to see the players to work harder even if they have to miss the Euro next season.

A Season To Rebuild...

It's been awhile I left my blog... been busy.. & since the last post, Rafa has left not only Liverpool but also the club he joined Inter Milan. Liverpool has been a bad shape thereafter. The appointment of Roy Hodgson never been better. Indeed, he is a good manager & has been a great manager to many clubs & countries, & he had nothing to prove over his 36 years experience! But he failed to lift Liverpool to pinnacle again, & I guess he couldn't blame the Kops wanting him out.

"King" Kenny had been appointed as a replacement.. as a caretaker.. a temporary manager.. which I believed most fans & players, or even he himself would rather see him been given a permanent job. He's been great so far. He brought the confidence back to the players.. he brought back the lost faith among the supporters... he brought back the joy & happiness.. Even we are out of Europe, our confidence of rebuilding under the King has never dented.. 

The signing of Luis Suarez & Andy Carroll light up the team.. A great performance by Suarez in the recent games had make the fans forget about a painful farewell by Torres. With Carroll on the scoring sheet again with England, he should be able to form a formidable partnership with Suarez, liken the Dalglish-Rush in the  Liverpool's glorious era. 

To Kenny... You'll Never Walk Alone!
