‘’ We will see once again against birmingham that the huge energetic performances of the big games abruptly disappears.The likes of spearing,lucas and kuyt will be well down in energy levels.We have struggled against the smaller teams all season because of the failure of the management to insist on a high powered first 15 minutes to get a 2-3 goal lead and then sit back and hit the opposition on the break.Too many times Dalglish fails to implement this requirement.It will turn out to be yet another small team opponent failure.How is a team that cannot beat small teams ever going to win a title?The management and players are weak in the head.Even southampton beat man utd in 1976 to win an fa cup.So any poor team can play above themselves now and again.What are our fans getting so excited about?You will alll be be frustrated and depressed by 5pm on saturday evening.’’
The above is a comment made yesterday morning on a post in which Antoine (our host) presented the Liverpool vs. Birmingham game. I have not touched it. It is what the author wrote (copy and paste).
The author of the above comment claims to be a Liverpool fan, and in all fairness, I have no reason to doubt this. Had this comment been made 5/6 months ago, it would have likely proved to be correct, but to post such a comment now, April 2011 with the events that have been unfolding, is an nothing short of unwarranted disbelief.
I will not comment yesterday’s game or the outcome which, as I had hinted, proved the author of the above comment utterly wrong in his assumptions and wayward predictions. What I wanted to say is that when there is scope to believe, people should believe! I cannot understand what joy people find to be so upsettingly negative, so helplessly destructive, and so pretentious in making sure their lone cry forces its way into the minds of others.
Another point I wanted to make is this! The Reds are now 9 games unbeaten at home, and in the last 6 games played the Reds have notched up 13 points against 8 gained by Spurs (who are currently our direct competitors for 5th). May I also bring to your attention that three of those six games the Reds played Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal, beating both Mancs and holding the PL title contending Gunners to a draw on their home turf?
The above achieved with what remains a shallow squad and with injuries that have hastily yet wonderfully promoted Jay Spearing, John Flanagan and now Jack Robinson to first team starting berths. And they have NOT disappointed!
5th is closer. The math keeps us in contention. Believe Liverpool fans, believe!
HAPPY EASTER TO ALL!
