    Zola Sacked

    Nice guys tend to not win much, unfortunately. One of the best players to come into the PL though, and will always be respected for that.

    Siamese stadium proposal

    The Red Stadium and the Blue Stadium look the same size on that picture. Are we going to get that bad that we're also going to get 30k gates? On the plus side, both stadiums could be filled on derby days, with the first half being played in one ground and the second half............. well i didn't start it!

    Gianfranco Zola v Rafael Benitez

    The biggest problem with the Club is RBS. If they'd had the balls to call the 2 cunts over the debt they'd be gone/going by now and we'd be having debates over the possible future owners instead of Benitez/Gerrard/Torres etc etc. At least it would be more positive.

    Player of the Season

    Reina. Could (should?) be captain. Honourable mentions to Carra for the usual 100%, Masch for looking like he gives a fuck most times, Maxi for going about his business quietly and efficiently and Kyrgiakos for proving a bargain at £1.5M and who hasn't really let us down whenever he's played. Sadly, that's about it.

    Rafa's Post-Hull Media Interview

    My eyes are starting to bleed. It's going to be a very long summer.

    Torres To Chelsea

    Torres hasn't had a football free summer for what will be 3 years at the start of next season. There's been the Euro's, Confederation Cup and, next, the World Cup, all when he's expected to play as a lone striker for us during the season. No wonder his injury record is getting worse. I think the Clubs inability to sign a quality second striker, and help take the weight off Torres, has been instrumental in us failing to win the League in either of the two season prior to this one. And him missing this season has contributed to our poor season along with all our other ills. He's 26 and has looked pissed off at times playing for us. I think he's possibly the best striker i've seen in a red shirt, I would be devastated if he went away, anywhere. I don't believe that the americans would use the money we might get for him in player buys for Benitez or any new manager and so I hope he stays, regardless of the cash on offer. If he left, it would be tanatmount to giving him away for interest payments. He should stay until at least the yanks go and not before or we'll lose his worth in goals and cash.

    What's wrong with RAWK?

    RAWK, RAOTL, TIA TLW etc etc, full of people with opinions. Surprise, surprise. All Reds though. (Shanklygates was better :whistle:)

    Spurs get fourth place

    Could give us a seasons breathing space to bring things around. Certainly put the brakes on the City train for a while.....maybe. But we should beware Tottenham, they are managed and funded sensibly, they might just stick around a while yet. We'd better get our shit sorted out and fast.
  10. That arfticle was definately written by some sycophantic journo. Still not holding my breath here.

    Liverpool Favorites To Land Cole?

    Joe Cole won't move out of London, he'll go to Spurs if 'Arry can pocket enough on the deal to take him to White Hart Lane. What?

    Fuck Me!! What has happened to Steve Mclaren?

    Not that i'd ever want him as our Manager, I think McLaren has shoved a few of the criticisms of him from the press back in their faces. Hopefully he will have impressed the Glazers sufficiently enough for them to make him united manager.......soon.

    "The Liverpool Way"

    Every Managers time here will be the same as Benitez's if they don't deliver the title within 5 years. That die has been well cast.

    Lap of 'honour'?

    Lap of Farewell?

    Look who's is Feeling the pressure

    ferguson is on a win-win, we get a result = he gets a result. We don't get a result and he has a ready made excuse for only winning the Carling Cup this season. Everyone is assuming that united will beat Sunderland and Chelsea and united will win their final games of course.

    Give Rafa a good send off on Sunday

    I'll be looking to see if he's the only one giving us a final wave. If he does of course.

    "The Liverpool Way"

    The Liverpool Way......see below. It might be outdated, it might be old hat, but it defined us for many years. If it has gone, and it probably has, then I see no harm in reminding myself what it was. Maybe our new owners, if they ever show up, should take a look at it, the existing ones don't seem to have done!

    what a time to break my duck...

    This. And hello.
  21. Ah well, we'll see if we get "the goodbye wave" at the end of the Chelsea game. And see how many give it to us as well. Hope the World Cup is good.

    Rafa's parting gift to Ferguson...

    Just to go off topic for a minute, I was told by my cousin, who played with Davenport in the West Cheshire League, that when Davenport signed for Forest, Clough pulled out a crate of ale in his office, and those present had a couple of beers to "celebrate" his signing. Allegedly, one of Davenports mates said to Clough, "Being honest Mr Clough, what chance has Peter got when you've got Fashanu as your first choice centre forward?" "Fashanu?" said Clough "he'll never make a centre forward as long as he's got a hole in his arse!"
  23. With regards to O'Neil, if we get him we'll have settled for mediocrity. He's at his level now with Villa and if he's got any sense he'll stay there. We need someone better than Benitez to come in if he goes or is sacked, Capello would be, I believe, ideal. I think he would get us and he commands respect from players. Failing him then a respected coach/manager to turn us around before we sink any further. Not bothered who really, as long as we stop being a laughing stock. PS, and who gets us going forwards with something resembling pass and move!!
