LFC/Arsenal open thread

Are you there Lord? It's me, LB. Release me from this misery.

(Busy today but no-one's in the office next couple of days, so expect a release of stories that have been clogging up since Monday. In the meantime, deal with Arsenal's comfortable 2nd half and the slop being sold as football currently on display at Anfield.)

quoting myself

"regardless of result, which still ought to be a win, if that team comes out unchanged this should be the last game we ever see of rafa. the stubbornness isnt cute anymore, taking off yossi or kuyt at 75 minutes isnt going to do shit


sickeningly disappointing performance from everyone except pepe in this tie"

"no changes

wow

still think they win but why why why is there noone like pennant or ngog in the squad instead of both spearing and plessis? terrible subs selection"

Yeah, the two EPL wins are nice, but who are we kidding? We have not woken up yet from a long, restful summer. Awful football

Mike Georger said...

HOLY SHIT ANOTHER AWFUL BALL FROM KUYT

SHOCKING

Mike Georger said...

and the injury faking begins!

Ian said...

You guys are getting pwned by Gooch. Ha. Ha.

Mike Georger said...

thats how you know youre bad

Mike Georger said...

i cant remember which happened last, liverpool winning the league, or liverpool scoring from a corner

Mike Georger said...

sammy lee is going to be the only guy to get fired by bolton and hired as liverpool manager in the same 12 month period

Mike Georger said...

one sub left and all you have is CDMs and defenders. possibly facing 30 minutes of stoppage time where if you concede you have to score two. brilliant strategy

Mike Georger said...

and just to point out some more fun things. rafa has bitched about no width for two straight years and the four guys you count on for that are kuyt, yossi, arbeloa, and fabio.

cant score, cant pass, GREAT work ethic
central attacker, not a wide player, always cuts to the middle and cant defend worth dick
not good enough for england let alone any decent spanish teams, just horrid
the brazilian harry kewell without the scoring or good looks

brilliant transfer policies. the chickens are coming home to roost my friend, and theyre in the mood for texmex

Eladio said...

And some brilliant finishing by the Gunners...oh wait, am I the only one watching Arsenal look like world beaters?

Mike Georger said...

did espn pick the arsenal game? wouldnt be shocked. im watching on lfctv, and im missing my bus for this abortion of a performance

Lingering Bursitis said...

ugh, Liege should have scored 2 in the last 10 minutes, it should be 5-0 on agg to Liege by this point

Reina, I love you

Mike Georger said...

the worst thing is that if they lose i still think they goto the uefa cup, which you KNOW rafa wont rest people for because winning that will save his fucking job

cant wait for him to blame the olympics for this, which he will

Eladio said...

I believe it was on ESPN Desportes...I watched on LiveFooty:

Mike Georger said...

gotcha

you have to take off arbeloa for agger and move carra out right

or put in plessis for torres or something retarded like that

Lingering Bursitis said...

Arbeloa is awful. What's happened to Xabi?


So many questions, all with depressing answers

Mike Georger said...

ah yes the 'just score from 40 yards out' routine, when you really need a goal, and have the best striker in the world, just jacking long balls instead of trying to connect passes is such a better idea.
its a shame you cant fire the players but they are rafas boys

Keith said...

and the two available player that could have brought you width, you got priced out of while dropping 20 mill on Robbie Keane. Nicely done, Rafa and Rick.

and re/ ESPN-Arsenal. They made the right call- 4 goals vs. none.

Mike Georger said...

its only 20 if they win the champions league
soooooo its not 20

Keith said...

well, you still would have been better off signing David Bentham.

Mike Georger said...

oh my GOD
thats what i get for bad mouthing dirk. the man can score with his thigh thats for sure. hell of a cross
