There was a lot of expectance from King Kenny. And i gotta say he did live up to it. He said before the game we need to get the players to enjoy football again and put a smile on their faces. They also need to get some confidence again. In my opinion the King managed to do that in just over 24 hours as a manager!
Our players looked lively and confident. Even as we went down 1-0 due to a brilliant performance by actor berbaflop we looked like we could still score and turn this game around. We never ever looked like that under hodgson! Unfortunately we got another blow as howard webb saw stevie’s challenge too dangerous and sent him off. That means for us he will miss blackpool away the darby at home as well as wolves away.
But even after Stevie’s sending off we looked like we could score. Soon after the halftime Kenny subbed meireles off for shelvey and babel on for maxi. Hodgson would have never done that. Giving the youngsters a chance and get a striker on for a midfielder eventhough we were losing. He’d never believed we could win away from home! This will be better from now on! So i can’t wait to watch blackpool away! The 2 subs had immediate impact with a babel, shelvey, babel pass and then with a brill shot.
And with the third substitution Kenny took torres off for Ngog. It was a surprise for everyone! But this proves no individual is bigger than the club! another quote the King used before the game. So that meant 3 pair of fresh legs.
However during the last 10 minutes the mancs had some really good chances and pepe was our saviour! he had a brill day! I dunno how he did that but he saved us with his hands his legs his body. He just was amazing and a really good candidate for MOTM. But for me young kelly snatched this award. He had been brill. His crosses were good and very dangerous and defesively he had been outstanding.
I do need to question the people who are voting for e.on MOTM. Berbaflop being MOTM? he just dived and thats all.. But enough talk about the mancs.
So in the end we did loose to that stupid decision by the ref but during the whole game i didn’t feel that gutted like i used to under hodgson and even now my disappointment keeps within reasonable limits. We saw our players giving a 110% on the pitch and heard the fans supporting. This is what LFC is! Manager, players and fans united!
