Well, as the rest of you know, our latest match was less than impressive. We started convincingly as we had strength in our front and back, with Lucas and Masch playing a more deffencive role each. But as much as i hate to say it as the next guy, Im starting to concern and worry about Carragher’s recent performances and our deffencive slip ups.Im not worried with our teams depth or strength in a whole, but at times it seems individuals are gone. If not for Reina, we would have been down 4 nil in the first half, he did his part and ide say he was my man of the match. As one commentator said, “it just isnt liverpool’s day”, plain and simple it wasnt. from the constand shots that rise over the net plenty of feet too much to the simple passes that Gerrard was mistaking near the end and torres mis-hit volley that flicked off his shin passed a relativley open goal, to the last minute shot by Yossi that only curved itself just inches from goal. From the first half, i was convinced that it was a deadlock that would be broken by our boys who have been in great scoring from when we need goals usually, not the case though. As Gerrard passed a free kick off to Riera, i was interested and ive got to say honestly, that shot was our best taken oppertunity the whole match. Riera is usually either a starter and subbed, or left off and replaces a winger, but if he is going to be taking free kicks like that, i personally want him to alternate with Gerrard (ofcoarse, Gerrard has first take and then Fabio once he is back on course). Overall.. im gutted, im able to find more negatives. But my main fear, is Carragher. Yes.. its crazy to think that our assistant captain, and long time serving red should be questioned, but about our last 4 goals against us have been something to do with Carra… Today it was Two. The first, he was un aware of Anelka lurking behind and as the ball passed him, it was put in the net. The second, Drogba easily wrestled past him to pass off to Malouda and seal the sadness for the night.. As me and my dad talked, we both agree that once Agger is fit, Maybe he and Kyriakos Can feature with Skrtel and Johnson. Just a game or a half to let Carragher take a day off and then come back full of spirit. But who knows, next week he could be back to his old self. Just my one opinion.. At least Mascherano featured in his new Nike CTR360 Maestri shoes, we still are the most up to date with technology at least!
