  1. In what way? I thought he was average, at his very best, and Barrett is average at his very worst.

     

    I just enjoyed reading Bascombe's reports a lot more. Of course, hindsight now tells us Houllier and, latterly, Owen were wearing him like a glove but his style was, FOR THE ECHO, largely enjoyable. Also, a minor point but Barrett seemed to try and crowbar too many topical news similes into match reports for my liking.

     

    Still, I'm just made up that Cunt (capitalised) Nick Peet didn't get the Liverpool gig. Not that I read the Echo any more, like.


  2. I suppose the old adage is true: Once A Blue... :roll:

     

    Fuck Owen, if anything it'll make number 19 even sweeter.

     

     

    Dick. If I hadn't already negged you for being a total dick then I'd neg you again for being a total dick.

     

    Someone please neg this total dick....

     

    cheers

     

    wool much?


  3. In his prime Henry was a different breed to any striker of the past twenty or thirty years. He wasn't just a brilliant 30 goal striker, he was also contributing 20 to 30 assists a season. For a striker that is absolutely unreal and Torres is still a few years from reaching that. Henry was the Arsenal team and in his prime, unplayable.

     

    Couldn't agree more. Although it has to be said Real Ronaldo could easily have held this mantle.

     

    I think the amazing number of assists (23) to goals scored (24) in 02/03 is unprecedented (Henry himself never came anywhere near it in any of his years at Arsenal) and it's unfair to be judging Torres by these standards.

     

    Judge Liverpool's Number 9 by how many league titles he has under his belt when he leaves the club.


  4. Can see why not starting Sami is seen as arlarse by some... However Rafa's clearly not the sentimental type and add to that the fact Reina was in line for the golden glove then it's not all THAT surprising he didn't start with what he believes is the strongest XI to suit that particular game.

     

    Besides, it's this pig-headedness which will make us champions soon ;)

     

    When Keane scored, I was afraid that sami wouldn't be allowed on at all.

     

    Why not? The clean sheet record was already gone.

     

    Rafa was just teasing the crowd and enjoying the power at that point.


  5. What they have been is a solid hardworking Unit in the mould of George Graham's Arsenal with enough quality throughout that squad to get the odd goal when they have needed it.

     

    Excellent point, this. One-nil wins when they weren't playing their trademark swashbuckling football :shitsmiley: has made them champions.

     

    As for the Dixon and Keown: if Curbishley or some other profile-hungry-out-of-work-manager had been on the panel and picked an XI like those two I'd have been fucking raging. As it was, I just laughed. How I laughed.
