Might be, because I´m not in a good mood, but no He scored and fought hard to win that penalty so…. sorry lads but no. However he did pass back short to give Chelsea the title on the last day of the season :) NO. Gerrard and Carragher back Roy and have done from the begining, it was just another bad performance under Roy and we need to sack him……YNWA Did Gerard miss on purpose??? Just to let you know i will never look at your website again you filthy Manc Munich Scum and i would urge everyone else to ignore you too. You Repulsive Shit houses.Logging Off, Blessed Relief NOT FUNNY, NOT FUNNY, NO NOT FUNNY AT ALL,SO WTF DO YOU TWO IDIOTS FIND SO FUNNY DO TELL ???? Morons no i dont think he did..he rushed it tryin to save time he was still catchn his breathe taken it..but the fact he went down the middle isnt a surprise either as when he was injured and kuyt scored against west ham from the spot he went straight down the middle and pointed to stevie g..either way we need new striker and a left footed winger.. Jesus that had me laughing………. Spot on lads. looooool lads first time I’ve smiled since last night …… still gutted ….. what’s going on , any latest ? I’m not sure … eee , but if you see thne way he poins at the goalie before taking the shot (points in the center ), its a bit weird , he never takes his pen’s in the middle , and he shoots center !!! a bit of conspiracy :) Quality video, very nearly surpassed by the quality responses to it. Currently the phrase “if you dont laugh…” has never been more appropriate. In an attempt to head of the hatred and flack, scouse red and followed the club for thirty five years. you have to watch the game to see that … before taking the kick Gerrard usually puts his penalty shots low and wide…this wasnt natural so prolly this WAS deliberate :P What a pair of f*cking balloons. If he really didn’t want to score, he could have saved face & his own stats, by giving the spotter to anyone in the back four. They possibly would have missed it altogether. If we’re sick watching it, I can only imagine what Alan Hansen, Rushie & Kenny are thinking. Penalties are a total mind game. Studies have shown that if the kicker waits more than two seconds after the whistle, he is 75% likely to convert the penalty kick. I’m not saying that’s a proven fact, but if you think about it, as a kicker you’ve got to play it calm and cool. The longer you wait the more anxious the keeper becomes, and he either freezes or already moves one direction before the ball is struck. Stevie didn’t even have a brief period of hesitation. He didn’t think about it. He let the pressure and his nerves get the best of him. Uncharacteristic of Stevie. Then again, this is an uncharacteristic season for Liverpool. Lawrie Sanchez is a cunt. Anyone hear bbc’s 5 live? i have been a steven gerrard fan since at least 12 years ago. I have seen all of his goals and penalty and i dont think i ever missed any one of his goals, even penalty misses and goals. in my profession, it involves studying people’s body language, and i can quite agree with this, he did deliberately miss the penalty. anyhow this is nothing for sure, and this is just to my cent.. ROY OUT NOW !! i hope so i can tel why ????? no 1 wanna play for this shit manger he can not tel any 1 what to do all he know and say on TV and news sory to the fan in every game cos he lose pleas sak him kenny or RAFA wel beter than roy Lawrie Sanchez is a twat, saying we aint a big club and that we won the Champions League by default,thank god John Aldridge was there to shut him up, anyway listen to the link http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/l/liverpool/9346712.stm I saw Babel grabbing his head and I cringed…He had no right for that as he has made millions grab their heads after missing easy goals far more often than Stevie G has! odengerrard, you know nothing about Gerrard if you think he did that on purpose. what many fans dont know, Gerrard was the mainman who told Purslow that if Benitez stayed another sweason, he was going to leave liverpool and Purslow got his and Carraghers ok before giving Hodgson contract and it was Gerrard who won us the game agaisnt Bolton so there is no way he would do that. that claim is total rubbish Anybody who thinks he meant to miss is a wanker….fuck off idiots,sick of foreigners who haven’t a clue talking shite….peace the rest….ynwa I thought it was funny myself. Of course he didn’t do it on purpose, the video is a JOKE. The Hodgson factor did have an effect on Steven Gerrard missing the pen, but only in the way that he was so desperate to save Roy’s job. I knew he was going to miss the pen. As soon as he was was fouled there was something frantic about his body lang, like time was runing out…not for the game but for Roy Hodgsons future. He lost his composure because of that and thats why he skied the ball over the bar. This is why Arsene Wenger does not let his players who were fouled for the pen take the pen. It funny cause if Steven had of scored, im sure liverpool would of went on to level the game. I think the question is if Glenn Johnson had another stinker of a game to get Hogdson the sack? Simply ridiculous to suggest that stevie missed on purpose. A thread designed to rile and to entice clueless “tabloid-esque” opinion. if anyone really believes that stevie, the one and only passionate red that night, missed a penalty on purpose to get Roy sacked then… I don’t now what to say without contradicting myself and getting angry and tabloid! Roy should leave but there is no Gerrard vs Management issue. ”Gerrard was the mainman who told Purslow that if Benitez stayed another sweason, he was going to leave liverpool…” wtf ??? hahahaa.. LOL.. i will requote my statement, ”..anyhow this is nothing for sure, and this is just to my cent…” learn how to read before u kiss people’s arse. sigh. YNWA In my opinion, Gerrard missed the penalty on purpose but did not do it with a bad intention. Before taking the penalty he apparently scratched his nipple but i think he was touching the Liverpool emblem and sort of talking to it saying, “Forgive me for what I’m about to do but it’s for your own good”. I think he wanted to show the owners that if Liverpool are getting hammered by a team like Blackburn than Hodgson should go. Like 96% of Liverpool fans, he knows that Hodgson is not right for the club and has to go. PS: This is just my opinion. He wudnt do that. Even if he wants roy sacked I don’t think he wud miss a pen. No chance. he is the only player along with carra that gives it 100% every game. just read the artcile on BBC – got angry and did a google search for “Lawrie Sanchez is a cunt”. It returned 199,000 matches, a lot of them exact matches….
