Ok, so I’m jumping the shark here and nothing in football is a given. (Well outside of Bolton being boring). But it’s one of those matches coming up where I can see the Red’s getting the full points. Let us be honest, how many of Wigan’s player could even sniff the first team of Liverpool? Maybe two, Charles N’Zogbia and Oliver Kapo, but that would be as bench players.
So that being said, as a fan I’m expecting more than a tie, or no goals. I want at least TWO GOALS. One from Captain Amazing Stevie Gerrard and Fernando Torres. I think at least with their pace and skill it should be no issue for them. And Torres at even 40% match fitness is better than any player they have.
Yes, I do want more than that goal wise, but I’m not a greedy person per say. That and I don’t have anything against Wigan, I just find them boring. I mean, really they just exist, that’s it.
Am I getting ahead of myself? Yes. And i know there’s a week until the next match, but be honest this is all we should be thinking about. Plus with no other games mid week, Torres can get match fit. Though we don’t need him to be all the way back until Lille.
Rafa could put out the U-20’s for the Pompey match and we’d still win. Ok, I’ll go when step further and say, you could put the old boys out there, and we’d still win. But LFC’s Legends now > Pompey’s players now. (yes I’m biased)
