Big away game for villa tonight, not expecting to win but I have been getting optimistic today for some stupid reason !
FULL TIME – Just absolutely dreadful, good night
80 – all Liverpool could be another 3 or 4 down
69 – Great save from Friedel, first chance today of saving the ball
64 – Not much to add really, Liverpool allowing us the Ball, Carew and Pires on for Albrighton and Gabby who looks like he is struggling
55 – caught on the counter attack and easy goal
52 – The change has helped, much better up front, pinning Liverpool back and Gabby should have scored
21:03 – Game kicks off, we go to 442 with Fonz on for Clark, houllier has a lot to prove
HALF TIME – And that was just so painful wasn’t it, not much you can say, problems all over, no passion, nothing. Boos from the faithful travelling support say it all.
44 – In the quiet at Anfield the microphones picked up obvious dissent and frustration and how we miss Ash
37 – Clark booked, misses West Brom game, oh well …
30 – Nothing to really add, Liverpool controlling it, defence look like making a mistake any time, Warnock is having a shocker
16 – Maybe offside BUT again no pace behind the defence as through ball cuts us apart
13 – We were warned and another needless set piece, given away by Warnock and unmarked header, does Houllier train them ?
7 – first chance for for albrighton as he nearly gets on the end of a Downing cross
3 mins – Defending at set piece very weak again, nearly a goal against
20:01 – Game KICKS OFF at a very muted Anfield and muted houllier return
19:55 – Strangely confident, even ignoring the Houllier Liverpool love fest
19:40 – Have we ever faced a weaker Liverpool side ? If we were full strength we would be favourites
19:20 – Still can not believe Cuellar is not starting, makes no sense at all, at least Albrighton back is a big boost
19:05 – Team as on R5 – Shock that Albrighton starts (told you Houllier pulls out shocks !) but no Cuellar, that can not be right, talk about favourites ?
Subs: Guzan, Pires, Carew, Delfouneso, Cuellar, Lichaj, Herd.
19:03 – No team news yet but News Torres is out as his wife just gone into labour, rumour Herd may start
18:45 – Got a feeling Houllier may pull a surprise either in personnel or formation tonight. He has to improve the away results ! Some speculation that Pires may start, please NOT. Also some rumours around that Clark may be injured as well.
