West Ham vs Liverpool (Sunday 6th of April 2014)

Recommended Posts

Sam "I'm forever blowing Ferguson" Allardyce would be ecstatic if he could throw a spanner into out championship march. Expect a frenzy of kicking, holding and general thuggery.

Every game is a cup final now.  And since I don't think we can realistically win 14 in a row, we'll probably drop points somewhere along the way.  The lads will have to be extremely careful not to be caught looking forward to next week against City.

We only need to win the next 6 in a row. The 14 is irrelevant. If we had beaten West Brom and drawn yesterday we would be in exactly the same place and no-one would even mention 14 in a row.

 

Fat Sam will not make it easy for us - he doesn't like us and would love to put a spanner in it. Being the shithouse he is he will probably tell Carroll and Nolan to try to overload Gerrard knowing he can't afford to put a foot wrong. I trust Gerrard to be professional enough and have the experience to know how to get through 90 minutes without getting a booking. He won't want to pick one up in this or the next match.

 

I suspect West Ham will not set up for a free flowing attacking game and will try to frustrate us as he did Chelsea. In response BR will probably go for the diamond again. Gives him the option to use Sterling later if it doesn't work out.

 

They have only scored 31 goals all season so I'll be surprised if they add to that. But they have won four out of the last five at home including a good win against Southampton so they clearly carry some threat.

 

If we can get ahead I can't see them being up for a scrap as they are not going down this season. Carroll, as others have stated, may have a point to prove. But Downing had his chance but just wasn't good enough - and he knows it. Nolan may pop up with something special. He seems to like proving himself against big clubs. I can't see Smoking Joe Cole even getting on the pitch.

 

Getting nervous already.

We need to approach this game as a chance to improve our goal difference. Put them under pressure from the off and try to get as many as possible.

This is just about us turning up and playing to our potential. The Hammers are a solid, if predictable, mid table team. We, on the other hand, are playing like the 1970 World Cup Brazil. So, ask yourself, would the 1970 World Cup Brazil beat Sam Allardyce's West Ham?

 

I think they would.

Sakho to deal with Carroll? Or don't change a winning team , tough one.

It is a tough one but I don't think he will change the back four. It sends out a message that we are scared of Carroll. Easier to make sure we stop his supply and don't give away stupid corners and free kicks.

mmmm I'm not sure. That Pele fella was getting on a bit by then. Good as that Jairzinho was its not like Brazil have got Andy Carroll on the end of any of his crosses.

West hams defence looks very dodgy we could and should score a few.

Are you on crack? They have the second highest number of clean sheets in the league.

 

I would eat your arm off for 1-0 right now.

Looked vulnerable enough when Sunderland had a go in the second half. And Sunderland haven't got our front line.

Fat sam will come to anfield with one intention to spoil the party entire team standing infront of the goal and hoofing it up every chance they get.

 

Lets hope he is at Anfield with the game going on at Upton Park.

    • Well that’s just bollocks as Rafa had left the club before Comolli had joined. 
    • Jurgen Klopp has given little credence to those individuals who are using any possible reason to downplay the achievements of Liverpool this season.

      The Reds are just four wins away from their first league triumph in three decades, and are on the verge of wrapping up the title in the quickest period of time in the modern era, currently holding a 22 point lead over Man City.

      But as recent games against relegation threatened sides such as Norwich and West Ham have shown, there is certainly no such thing as a easy win.

      The fact that this team has only dropped points once this campaign is remarkable, however there is a theory around that it is to do with the failings of their main rivals, not so much the overall strength of Liverpool.

      Speaking ahead of the game against Watford on Saturday evening, Klopp was having none of that.

      The Daily Mail reported the manager as saying:

      “I couldn't care less (what people say).

      “Look, it is completely normal. 

      “I don't think that we should have any concern for things like this. If other people think like that – if they think City are not as good as they were – they ARE!

      “They have scored a little less goals than us, conceded a few more, and if you look why it is clear they have been missing some players. 

      “The other teams are really strong too. 

      “Yes, Bayern beat Tottenham and Chelsea [in the Champions League] but they are really strong over a season.

      “Yes, they (Spurs and Chelsea) have had some problems, that's all true. 

      “But in the moment that you play them you don't feel that they have these problems.

      “The points they have, we have no influence on that apart from the games when we play them.

      “So it says nothing about the quality of the Premier League, especially when you look at City v Real Madrid. 

      “I know that people look at these things and you saw that one of the best teams in the world maybe in the moment and City were clearly better so that shows as well how strong the League is.  

      Despite the outstanding consistency and success of the past two seasons, Klopp is certainly not one to rest on his laurels and be content.

      “There is still a lot of work to do and a lot of space for improvement.

      “You see our games and result wise it looks okay but performance-wise there is a lot of space for improvement. 

      “That is what we work on and try constantly through the week.

      “Result consistency is maybe difficult to improve because that is close to perfection, obviously, but it is possible to improve the performances in all departments. 

      “There are so many things you can improve that that will never end.”

    • This will become a worry soon. Fucking Ludogorets players travelling to the San Siro stadium with face masks on. Its all becoming a bit hysterical; some more reported cases in the UK and all bets are off. Got to get this wrapped up in the coming weeks. Bomb out the Cup and get this wrapped up in the next 3 weeks.
