Liverpool 2 United 1

All good things have to end. The might Liverpool have finally scored a goal at home to their arch rivals, something even Man City have proved better at doing. Four games of the season gone and Liverpool fans are getting carried away- yes they did it without Torres and Gerrard, it is an improvement on last season, Robbie Keane ran around a lot without really touching the ball- good for them. I was gutted at the final whistle yesterday, but I am over it now- it was just three points and a bit of a shambolic performance, but we will make up for it. Let’s see which team is happier in May.

Arriving at Anfield yesterday Liverpool’s welcome was a large ‘Munich ‘58′ sign in paint outside the away end.  Yes this was only done by a few idiots, but the stewards etc had no intention of removing it. Before the game even started my dad was pelted by a coin from home fans in the upper tier but the stewards were far more concerned by the fact United fans were standing up as if that was the real danger. You’ll Never Walk Alone was aired as usual, but all the modern shniy scarves and men in suits failed to match the way Celtic belt it out, only the Kop does it preoperly these days.

On the pitch United started brightly. Berbatov could have scored within a minute, and within 3 Tevez had found the net. The perfect start. Berbatov looked class, United’s movement was fantastic and we thought we would have a great day out. But 85 minutes later and things had gone badly wrong. Liverpool got two lucky goals- an og and an error by Giggs that resulted in a bobbled shot finding the net- but they were good for their win. They pressed our players, gave us no time on the ball, worked harder and ultimately got their rewards. United were shambles- rarely has the passing been so bad and rarely has their been so little width. And when were United last losing with 10 minutes to go without then even creating a half chance to equalise?

The final whistle blew, our heads dropped, and Liverpool fans celebrated as if they had won the league. Some United fans resorted to Hillsborough chants and the general tone was sunk lower than it has been for a while. But sorry boys, you may have had a good win but your team is still not up to much and it is only September. Let’s see whether Jamie Carragher is jumping around like a complete twat in May still.  

We were held in the ground for half an hour and then escorted out of the ground past the groups of scallies and cocky morons waiting to wave us goodbye. Let’s just hope we will be waving them goodbye in the title race as the season goes on. This was a bad day though and with Chelsea away next week we could be very low down in the table going into October.

    Losing to liverpool is huge do not doubt it , UTD are renowned for there poor starts and I am sure fergie knows what he is doing … BUT we are under fire from the city they now have massive resources that we don’t (clearly) we should worry! Better youth team, more money, reliable fans, creative directors and executives. we all joke about city’S ambitious plans to win the champions league in 3 years ( which we should ) . BUT 3-5 years down the line they will be up there, I am certain of that. Unless we don’t get investment, CITY WILL DOMINATE!
