Game today is at 8PM (UK Time) , Come on Reds.
Aquilani is set for his Premier League debut more…
(I do not think Rafa will start him though, he will be subbed in)
Stevie G is set to feature tonight while Torres gets a much needed rest more…
(For the first time ever I am looking forward to the international break. This gives our injured players some time to recover.)
Rafa challenges Yossi to inspire more…
(Come on Yossi)
And believes that Lucas will reach his potential with Liverpool more…
(I agree with you Rafa, the young lad is improving. Not sure how many noticed but he was the one who drove the ball forward in the Lyon game when Babel scored.)
In the meantime there is more talk of Dossena leaving more…
(If it is going to happen let it happen, we can not keep going back and forth)
Stan Collymore is at it again more…
(Calling us a disgrace for not putting a poppy on our shirt. Stan if you read the press release by the Royal British Legion you would know that LFC have a huge fundraising effort going on. At the end of the day the money collected will help the legion more than the poppy on the shirt.)
Rafa pleas with both England & Spain NOT TO TAKE GERRARD & TORRES more…
(If they do then they will to deal with 200 million Liverpool Supporters.)
And Capello listens and agrees more…
However Johnson will feature more…
(Let us keep our fingers crossed)
Rafa holds talk with the board more…
(Hopefully they gave their support)
And if it is about transfers word is there is no money, AGAIN more…
(We need a sugar daddy FAST)
Middlesbrough winger Adam Johnson is being linked with Liverpool.
(Do these papers know that no money mean NO MONEY???)
Klass-Jan Huntelaar is also linked with Liverpool.
(I give up)
But Tom Hicks vows not to sell top players more…
(I pray that he is telling the truth this time)
He will however try to get £250 millions for the stadium naming rights more…
(Let us hope it will not be some weird name.)
Michael Owen will not go to the World Cup more…
(Serves him right, he sold his soul to the devil to play in the World Cup. )
And more comedy as Carlo Ancelotti is unhappy with United over Fergie’s ref outbust yesterday more…
(Welcome to the PL Carlo, remember all the nice bottles of wine you bought him? How nice he was when your Milan faced United in the CL. Well Fergie is a different person in the PL, he expects everyone to let him win.)
The Reds host Brum on Monday and unfortunately we are still plagued with injuries. Monday nights have been unlucky for us in the past so we hope to break the duck and get a little bit of good luck, we need it badly.
Albert Riera (hamstring) is ruled out while Glen Johnson (calf), Fabio Aurélio (calf), Andrea Dossena (groin), Steven Gerrard (groin), Martin Kelly (ankle) and Fernando Torres (groin) are doubtful.
To add to Rafa’s worries Carragher & Degen are suspended. However both Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger should be available and probably Stephen Darby or Daniel Ayala will also feature. Alberto Aquilani should make his Premier League debut however most likely Rafa will start him on the bench.
Former Red Gregory Vignal is expected to start for Birmingham
It will be though but we will prevail, time for Anfield to roar again;
Come on Reds, Y.N.W.A.
Kickoff is at 8PM (UK Time)
Don’t know if this was published before, but its pretty cool if anyone missed it. Happy there’s on player from Calgary, too bad its Owen Hargreaves on Manchester.. Football around the world, to England
In absence of Antoine, I will try and fill in everyone with what I can find..
Rafa says Torres can be a Legend (but we knew this all along!) Click here
And Rafa backs Lucas again (Good for his confidence, I see him being a worker like Kuyt in time!!) click here
Good and Bad news: Manpoo has lost, but to Chelsea who pull even furthur away from us.. 1-0 final score (this means we need Chelsea to draw and lose a few games since we lost to them, if we go on a winning streak, we have to beat the top four in our remaining games to secure vital points!)
We did Claim Glory in one Tournament though! Click here
Our injuries with Gerrard and Torres will both be left till monday to decide if they can feature in our next match.. Skrtle, Aurelio, El Zhar and Aquilani all will be hopefully on the bench or starting, but Rafa is worried about fitness levels still, not if they are in training…
Or Stat Attack for Tomorrow’s match: Click here
And again, Cisse tips Ngog :) He thinks Torres can help him learn and grow. If Torres is a Legend, maybe Ngog will be one too?! Click here
Another Match Preview from BBC, but this says Aurelio is doughtful.. Carragher also is suspended if anyone forgot. Click here
And finally, Rafa is Confident! “Benitez ‘very pleased’ to be at Liverpool”
Hope this makes up for Antoine’s hard work for a day!
So today I went on www.the92.co.uk to see who’s got the best fans in the world. Liverpool ranked six, and I’m ok with that, but even Bury (Yes, Bury!) and other league 2 teams are doing better than ranked 46th place Manchester united. That is halfway, because there are 92 teams overall. What’s this thing about them having the most fans in the world?
Also I googled ‘Twitter Manchester United FC’ and ‘Twitter Liverpool FC’, and here are the results (Manchester United is at the top)
Bit of a difference, eh?
How many times do you hear “The only good players for Liverpool are Gerrard and Torres” or “The only Liverpool players that could fit into Man Utd’s squad are Gerrard and Torres”?. About every week? Well where is United’s “Top Class” midfield? They have one quality player, Ryan Giggs, who is getting too old to play. And their “top class” strikers? Wayne Rooney isn’t even near Torres’ league, and Berbatov, for me, is too lazy and won’t even fit in our reserves. Van Der Sar is getting too old, and Ben Foster doesn’t know what he’s doing. Vidic, yes, is a world class defender. I would take him. Ferdinand is not doing good lately, and we have Carragher, Agger, Skrtel, Kelly and more central defenders. Wes Brown and Evra are great, but Johnson is better than Evra, and Insua is younger and better than Brown. Also, Aqilani is meant to be a replacement for Alonso, so expect him to shine when he is fully fit.
So here is my unbiased team of Man Utd and Liverpool players:
Subs: Van Der Sar, Carragher, Kuyt, Valencia, Benayoun, Rooney
This is MY opinion, so please no bad comments.
