Friends Of Liverpool

Ok, so we lost at Old Trafford to our old enemy Man Utd 3-2, but there were alot of positives to take from the defeat.
Roy Hodson’s Liverpool team gave Utd a good old run for their money and they were made work very hard for their victory.
We matched them for posession, gave them precious few goal-scoring chances, except the ones that Berbatov scored from and on another day, it could have been at last a draw.
I felt Koncheskey did not get tight on his man all throughout the game which resulted in Nani having the freedom to send in the crosses that Berbatov put away.
Steven Gerrard, our Captain was marvellous all day, pulling the strings in midfield, making tackles in defence and scoring the two goals to bring us back into the game.
Poulson looked ok in midfield, passing the ball to his colleagues, making some good tackles, maybe his passing was a bit defensive at times, but he will grow into the team.
Meireles shaved his head and played like his composure had gone with his locks, he will turn out to be a good purchase for Liverpool though.
Joe Cole played in fits and starts as he adjusts to a new club he is fully committed to, and he will be a vital player for us this season.
Fernando Torres was isolated upfront in the first-half but he did manage to win us a penalty and a free-kick from which Stevie G scored both times.
So, to loose 3-2 to the Scum after running them so close is galling, but we are improving all the time and I am optimistic for the rest of the season ahead as Roy Hodgson continues his rebuilding of this Liverpool team.
