Friends Of Liverpool

Well, after tonight’s debillitating defeat to the  Wounded Lion’s of Newcastle United, we have to take yet another setback in our quest for sucess at Liverpool.Without Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher and an out of form Torres upfront, we looked a pale shadow of a team.
Losing 3-1 was hard to take as we were the better team for most periods of the game and we deserved at least a point to take away from St. James’ Park tonight, but it was not to be.
We played well enough, with Raul Miereles and Lucas dominating the midfield but we were let down at the back by some poor marking for the first, second and especially, the third goal.
Newcastle played too well on the night for Liverpool to get a real look in.
The faults at the back I can understand but Fernando Torres did nothing upfront, he had a clear chance one on one with their keeper but he drove it straight at him insteadd of lifting the ball over the keeper as he was trained to do by Benitez.
So we are stuck on 22 points and we are lucky teams above us haven’t taken advantage this weekend.
