A look ahead to Liverpool vs Spurs

0

Anfield on Sunday. Oh good. The recent form of the two sides points at only one likely outcome unfortunately and it’s not a good one. One win in thirteen games for us whereas if you take all results since Dalglish took over on 8 Jan then Liverpool would lie second. (We are 10th in the same table by the way, just below West Brom. Details from statto.com).

Our energetic and skilful performance at Middle Eastlands on Tuesday didn’t bring the reward it deserved due to familiar reasons but the deflation and disappointment felt afterwards, particularly by the players judging by some of the comments that have come out, could’ve been avoided, as has often been stated, if we’d seen off the likes of Blackpool, West Brom, Wigan and the Hamsters. The fact that we didn’t means that two wins in our last two games will see us into fifth and the Europa League – not the most tempting of prizes unless you either a) enjoy following what’s likely to be mostly a second string to obscure European venues (which a lot of people do to be fair) or b) view the competition as one we could actually win.

No matter what happens it’ll be another game and more experience under the belt for Rose and Sandro as they mature into hopefully top class Premiership players. (Jumping the gun a bit on Rose I know). Other than that it’s the usual thing at this time of year, some players will thinking of their new contracts with us or with potential suitors whilst others will be thinking of the beach. One thing we don’t need is more injuries. Another player lost in each of the last two games as well as Gallas limping off too.

According to the website Luka has said that Sunday’s trip to Anfield will ‘show what we’re made of’. He for one, has no need to put that sort of pressure on himself, his form has barely dipped all season. Some of the others though will need to stand up and be counted if we’re going to make sure it doesn’t get too messy. COYS.

  1. I really think we should give a few youngsters a go, it makes sense, we are not going to be seeing Krancjar, Hutton, Pav and Bassong next season, and Jenas, Defoe and Gomes could all be sold.

    If this is the case dont even put them in the squad, Naughton was the championship RB of the year, he should start, and Kane should be on the bench.

  2. Agreed. And to be honest, i'd rather avoid the europa league. Concentrate on building a strong team to challenge top 4 and get into CL again. Europa will be an unwanted distraction. A good cup run will do us good too. Still hope to see Kranjcar next season. Think Defoe still can do us good. Hope Harry will give the others a good run in the team too.
