Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool ran out easy winners against West Ham last night 3-0 but instead of the result and performance boosting the Anfield crowd, the mood in the stadium was one of despondency.

The Reds ran out easy winners with goals by Yossi Benayoun, David Ngog and an own goal by Rob Green.
Liverpool had all the possession and all the chances and were in complete command of the game for the full 90 mins and a bigger winning margin wouldn’t have flattered the Reds.
But it all felt a bit flat, the crowd never really got going, 6,000 spare seats due in part to flights being grounded all over Europe.
The bombshell news that Fernando Torres has played his last game of the season for Liverpool following another operation on his right knee seems to have affected everybody from the fans through to the players.
It makes our chances of beating Athletico Madrid that much more difficult and they are a tough team to beat with Diego Forlan in their side.
But more than that, we are now fighting with Aston Villa for a Europa League place for next season, we are back up to sixth while Villa have a game in hand on us again.
Fighting for 6th place in the league, that’s where we are, sad isn’t it?
The uncertainty over Rafa Benitez’s future, the club up for sale with a ridiculous asking price of £800 million by Hicks, its all combining to make it a gloomy season at Liverpool this year.
However being a die-hard fan for over 35 years now, i will keep believing and supporting the team as ever.
