Top of the Table

Been quite busy lately so I haven’t had a chance to post much. Anyway, current Premier League table below:

No more joint top nonsense, my beloved Reds are now clearly at the top. It’s still very early in the season and Liverpool have been in this position before and it didn’t really work out then, so it’s very premature to talk bout ending the title drought and whatnot. 

Lots of analysis on how Liverpool has been doing online, so I’m not gonna talk bout it here. I like the way the boys are playing (except for the dodgy defense), but again, it’s still early  in the season.

But still, it’s good to be top, let’s keep the momentum boys, walk on….

So it was a bore draw in the end, the Mancs parked the bus and didn’t do much. I can’t really fault Mourinho for his tactics though, he did what any manager would do, if you can’t win, make sure you don’t lose.

What I do blame is the stupid fricking international break. This break never comes at the right time and Liverpool seldom plays well after an international break. Don’t believe me? Well refer to this article from This Is Anfield below:

International Hangover 

I’m not a fan of the IB, we lost Wijnaldum to injury this time (because he was played despite saying he wasn’t feeling good) and this is actually a good scenario, usually we end up with more injured players. And the hangover, God, I’m not gonna get into it, the article above sums it up.

Anyway, no point harping on what has happened, latest league table is below:

2 points off the top, that’s not too bad, and we’ve only played 3 home games, 7 out of 9 possible points, again, not too bad. Upcoming fixtures below:

The target now is to get maximum points from the next 5 league games, can’t afford anymore slip-ups. Until the next football update, YNWA!!!

Liverpool Vs Manchester United 17th October 2016

It’s that time of the year for one of the biggest matches of the season. The time above is UK time, so that means that the match will be at 3 am on Tuesday morning here, bloody hell. All because the Premier League wants to maximize their TV revenues, oh well, that’s the nature of the game. Anyway, look at the current table below:

Because of the weekend results, Liverpool is in a good position to go joint top with a win, or even top if the win is by more than 3 goals. I’m not gonna write a preview of the game, there are a lot of websites already doing that, but I will write bout how I feel bout this game.

I absolutely HATE it when this match comes around, facing the Mancs is the most stressful match of the season. You can’t predict it, anything can happen. My heart will be beating furiously non-stop for the whole 90 minutes.The fact that I will have to be awake at an ungodly hour to watch the game is only gonna compound my feelings. I love watching my beloved reds play, hell, I even watch the pre-season friendlies, but this game is very taxing on the nerves. 

But having said that, the game could not have come at a better time. The boys are on form, and even though Lallana and Wijnaldum are doubtful, the squad now has enough depth so the lineup should still be pretty strong. But again, we’re facing the Mancs, anything can happen, and we’ve been victims of dodgy refereeing in the past. A friend of mine did say though that Mourinho is in charge now, and refs don’t like him so that might work in our favor.

Whatever happens, I have faith in our boys and in Klopp. Whatever the results, I will walk on with hope in my heart and I will never walk alone.

Come on you Reds!!!
