crap crap crap
i watched tje first half we should have at least scored 3
n we lost
crap crap crap
Shak I like your optomism.
Saw the game live on TV and man we miss Cheh and Terry.
We are a shamble at the back without them.
Chavallio is the only one holing solid.
Looks like Terry will be out for a while with his back problem.
So we better shore up the defense come January or Manure will take the title.
Truth needs no censorship
oh come one its only 4 points!!!
manutd might just be going strong at the moment but they are not consistent at all!! they will go down ..
we'll get them when they come to stamford bridge ... that brings the point difference to 1 and then there MUST be some team in prem (*wink* west ham) who will atleast draw with them! ... and now we are in the lead ...
i will only give up if the point difference is more than 6 by the end of january ..
Yeah Arsenal 3rd now.. Poor Liverpool..
lol well i guess there r still 18 games left
CROUCH OUT, VILLA IN
Liverpool are ready to sell Peter Crouch, most probably to Newcastle, and have identified Valencia's David Villa as his preferred replacement.
Friday's papers are convinced that the gangling England striker will be sold next month by Rafa Benitez. The Pool boss has apparently become exasperated by Crouch's profligacy and doesn't regard him as a first-team player. Which makes you wonder why he bought him.
The Sun says that 'Toon boss Glenn Roeder wants the England star to boost his injury-hit strike force' and adds that 'it is understood Crouch would be prepared to sign for Newcastle.' However, it remains to be seen whether the Toon would be prepared to match Pool's reputed £12m valuation of a player who signed for just £7m 18 months ago.
Pool, though, need the extra dosh. As The Independent explains, 'Liverpool need to generate a bigger fee for Crouch to help to pay for Villa, also 25, who would cost around £25m from Valencia and who has long been tipped for a move to the Premiership and is believed to favour joining Liverpool.'
In short, there are a few stumbling blocks to be overcome before either of these deals take place. The Indy says that Glenn Roeder 'is considering Lyon's John Carew, who has been told he can leave the French champions and could arrive initially on loan, as a cheaper alternative should Newcastle fail to land Crouch'.
CAN JAVIER JOIN POOL?
Liverpool are being heavily linked with West Ham's Argentine misfit Javier Mascherano. Juventus are also believed to have made a bid for the midfielder, but it remains unclear whether he can actually move to a third club within 12 months.
The Sun says that 'he hopes to bend FIFA rules to join Liverpool next month' and his 'advisors believe any potential buyer can claim the rule is a restraint of trade, citing the fact that West Ham have been taken over since he signed in August.'
That, though, is the stuff of fantasy according to The Guardian. 'Following discussions with Fifa West Ham know that the 22-year-old cannot turn out for any other team before July 2007 because regulations prevent him from playing for more than two clubs in the preceding 12 months,' the paper reports.
Meanwhile; Gazzetta Dello Sport throws another rumour into the mix - they suggest that Juventus will give Liverpool free reign to bring in Mascherano if they can have Momo Sissoko in the summer.
ahaaa scum dropped two points yesterday
so hope the gap will be reduced to 4 points tonight?
liverpool won @ home
one of the best game of the season for the reds they dominated the whole game
good goal by crouch
Football365's 2007 Crystal Ball (One)
ManYoo look to sign Bergman, Stevie G takes up a role on the right (of Peruvian politics) and Stewart Downing releases a tale of forbidden love. Alan Tyers takes a look ahead to 2007...
* 35-year-old Henrik Larsson is a disappointment but Sir Alex Ferguson refuses to acknowledge that the former Celtic legend may be past his best. "These Scandinavians are model professionals and can play on for years," insists Sir. To prove it, he signs Brian Laudrup on a three-year deal.
* Liverpool's Rafa Benitez defends himself against criticism that he is not playing Steven Gerrard in his best position, saying, "Stevie is proving himself an extremely competent goalkeeper."
* Sven-Goran Eriksson is appointed manager of model Premiership club Charlton Athletic, names David Beckham as captain and vows that Becks will be selected for every game. Real Madrid point out that Beckham is still contracted to them, but Sven insists his mind is made up and that Beckham's record for Charlton (he's never been on the losing side) speaks for itself.
* After her successful campaign with Asda's fashion range, Colleen looks for other upmarket endorsement opportunities for herself and her Wayne. An excited spokesperson reveals, "Wayne is perfect as the new face for Spud U Like."
* Despite having a broken leg, Stewart Downing is selected for England's friendly against Spain. He sits quietly, in a bath chair, on the left side of midfield for the full 90 minutes. McClaren declares himself "delighted with the lad's contribution".
* Hearts dictator Vladimir Romanov sacks all the remaining Scottish players in the squad, citing "gross insubordination" and "Scottishness, innit".
* Freddie Shepherd has a brainwave and enquires if Titus Bramble might maybe, possibly, have a Scottish grandma or be causing pie-related unrest in the dressing room.
* After a year's work, Lord Stevens concludes that some football agents may be a bit dodgy. His next inquiry will focus on the alleged Catholicism of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.
* A disappointing performance against Andorra causes more heat for Steve McClaren. He explains that the players were suffering a World Cup hangover again, but this time it's because of the Cricket World Cup. A nation sighs.
* Vladimir Romanov gets rid of the rest of the Hearts squad, telling a press conference: "They had to go. They were looking at me funny."
* Brian Laudrup is not quite firing on all cylinders but still Sir Fergie refuses to concede the point. A stunning transfer coup sees Tomas Brolin arrive at Old Trafford.
* Craig Bellamy is added to George W Bush's 'Axis of Evil'.
* Despite media reports to the contrary, Steven Gerrard insists he is happy with the role Rafael Benitez has handed him, saying, "I'm very happy on loan at Widnes and I feel my scrummaging skills are coming on with every game."
* Tomas Brolin requires the use of a small crane to get onto the pitch, but Sir Alex is convinced that his transfer policy will soon bear fruit. Lennart Johansson is signed to play on the left side of midfield.
* Stuart Downing releases his autobiography, 'McClaren And Me: A Forbidden Love' (Barton Press, £4.99).
* Mentalist Korean leader Kim Il-sung asks for permission to leave the Axis of Evil, saying that Craig Bellamy "scares him".
* Despite Chelsea being nine points ahead with only one game to play, Richard Keys opens his coverage of the final match of the season by saying, "This title race is going right down to the wire - it's still anybody's."
* The Champions League final is played. Arsène Wenger is still complaining bitterly about the refereeing in last year's.
* A final throw of the dice sees Sir Alex enquire about the availability of Ingmar Bergman to add some firepower from the United bench.
* Wembley is absolutely, definitely, no question about it, going to be ready for the Cup Final in 2008.
* England's national team look forward to a month of doing nothing whatsoever. Frank Lampard explains that they enjoyed it so much last summer that they thought they'd do it all again this year.
* Vladimir Romanov bans Hearts fans from Tynecastle, telling them "he doesn't need their sort ruining things" and begins trying to persuade Lithuanians to emigrate to Scotland in order to provide some support for the team. However, the slogan 'People of Lithuania: Sick of a harsh climate, terrible diet and rampant alcoholism? Then come to Scotland!' falls foul of the advertising standards authorities.
* Steven Gerrard's patience looks to be wearing thin but he puts a brave face on Benitez's latest role for him. "I'm not the sort of person to shirk a challenge and I think I can be a big success as the Minister for Fisheries here in Peru," he says.
* Saga Holidays launch Club 58-70, for older ladies looking for a bit of a fling in their summer break. More promotional work beckons for Rooney, W.

* Jonathan Woodgate suffers an injury setback when he dislocates his brain attempting The Sun's coffee break crossword.
