    MY WORD.
  2. Apart from in my last post in this thread you mean? Clearly plenty of stuff is wrong with our team. I'm just not going to burst into tears after nine games.

    Some of what David Silva does with a football is pornographic.

    England vs India

    Started well here. India two down for not many, and going at under three an over.

    They'll need a second to win this.
  10. Our current league position isn't of huge relevance. If we were top after nine games I wouldn't be convinced we were going to win the league, similarly if we were 18th I'd not be worried about relegation. Of far more importance is how we're playing. We've clearly addressed some of the issues of last season, others not so much. We're creating a lot of chances, but missing most of them. We've still yet to find a way of making the most of Carroll's ability. Downing was poor yesterday, but taking off our only genuine wide midfielder when bringing Carroll on made little sense. Perhaps all the drifting out wide, dropping deep etc from Carroll is instruction from Dalglish. He doesn't want him to be the one dimensional player a lot of people feared he might be. Long term it might be the best option. Short term its a hinderance. We want more/better wide players, or Carroll just to not play at all. Its a difficult situation trying to find the right players, and philosophy to accomodate Suarez and Carroll in the same team, and they seemingly require very different things. The blend in the centre of midfield is another thing we don't appear to have quite nailed. I still feel that, especially with a lack of pace at centreback, we require someone to hold. Someone to do the boring stuff. That nauseating word "control", that has plagued the last few years, unfortunately is relevant. Without this type of player we don't dominate the centre of the pitch enough, with or without the ball. This probably means we need three in midfield as, Gerrard aside, we don't have any players capable of being part of a two. Defensively we don't seem to be able to look entirely convincing for a full 90 minutes. Enrique and Agger are the only two I have much faith in at the moment, and one of them is injured most of the time. Carragher shouldn't be playing every week. Its no real slight on him, he's 34, no other decent sides that play in probably the most physical league in the world have 34 year olds playing every single week at centreback. His knowledge and experience is invaluable, and for certain games he has to play, just not all the time. It'll take time for us to click, for everyone to know their role, and realistically we're trying to finish 4th this season, not top four, but fourth. The other three are miles away and anyone who thinks we can catch them up in 12 months is out of their mind. So we're battling with Arsenal and Tottenham. Both teams have obviously flaws in their squad but neither had to ship out the gargantuan levels of shite we did, in one transfer window. Nor did they then have to sign the quantity of players we did, again, in one transfer window. In short, their task of finishing 4th was much easier than ours. One of the most pleasing things about our squad at the moment is the lack of real fucking shit. 30 year olds on 100k a week, doing fuck all. The vast majority of them have gone, thank fuck. We're four points off fourth, with 27 games left. Don't panic.

    Dalglish expects to have money to spend

    Even if we did have the cash for someone like Cavani I couldn't see us signing him whilst Carroll is at the club.
