Your not serious rite..
Arsenal deserved to win. I dislike Benitez even more after this type of 10 men behind the ball playin. Arsenal needs someone to put the ball in the net, and Adebayor needs to regrow his hair..Neway, heres hopin Arsenal wins the return leg 2-0..
says a liverpool supporter..... A disgrace.
Anyway about the match, we didnt play well but we got the goal. I'm happy with that. There was no doubt that we'd be on the back foot for alot of the game and same goes for arsenal when they come to us. Benitez was smart for making the defense and midfield alot more compact towards the last 30 - 35 mins of the game. I also liked the idea of putting torres on the last man if anyone noticed. A few times arsenal piled alot of men forward and with one killer pass over the top to torres and he could have sealed the game. Pitty it didnt quite come off but nearly did on a few occations.
You dont have to play pretty football to get a result with is why im happy. I mean would you rather a team play in a wicked attacking display and get a bad result or play defensive an achieve what you set out for.
Taking them back to anfield is a really advantage with kuyt's away goal. I still dont like the way people are saying we are favorites now. Remeber benfica ? So i hope we just keep our head's screwed on and take the game to arsenal with a fast tempo as we usually start with anfield.
My prediction is 2-0 at anfield to liverpool. I just think torres will be too much for them here. He's in quality form right now at anfield.
P.S. Is anyone interested in to whom arsenal and liverpool will field on saturday baring in mind the game just gone and the one next week. We have torres and masch suspended so they should be looking fresh for tuesday. I personally think we should igve crouch atleast a half on saturday just to see what kind of problems he can give arsenal. They have quickish defenders but maybe trying to cope with the speed of torres and the physical presence of crocuh maybe be abit too much ?
