You'll Never Win Again

First off, well done Europe!

We all had confidence in G-Mac didn't we? Not to mention L-Don, M-Jim and I-Pou. In fact whenever a European bagged a birdie and shouted 'C'Mon!' they were actually hollering for the team captain Monty. As LifeUniStudent tweeted us, no one ever calls Tom Watson T-Wat - we reserve that for Jeff Overton.

'Looks like it's going to be a close shave - Immac for G-Mac!'

I'm pleased that they managed to rescue the Cup from a flood of Biblical proportions on the first day. They all went out two by two on Monday and well it lived up to the billing in the end. My only regret is that no one managed to attack some of them lads with a pair of clippers.

Bubba Watson looked like a Silvikrin ad, Ricky Fowler like some lost sibling of the Partridge Family and Rory McIlroy looks for all the world like the illegitimate offspring of Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction and Jimmy Nesbitt. Get a bleeding haircut.

It was the right result in the end though eh?

As it was at Anfield. Blackpool walked it really. I hope they stumble again soon cos by God am I fed up of hearing some numpty commentator use the phrase 'Tangerine Dream'.

But it's more likely that Liverpool will continue to suffer. Poor Woy. It's been a while since we've heard 'You'll Never Walk Alone' on the Kop. I reckon Hodgson might be doing just that - straight out of Anfield - very soon. Incidentally, Nigel de Jong's favourite terrace anthem is 'You'll Never Walk Again'. And for Fernando Torres, it should be 'You'll Never Run Again'.

Torres's lack of confidence in either his ability or his groin is the tip of Woy's iceberg. He insists he's one of the most wespected coaches in Europe but that hardly matters if he's one of the least wespected in Liverpool.

'Wot Wubbish! This weally couldn't be any worse if my name was Gwaeme Souness.'

His main problem, as far as I can make out, is in my own limited, naive, objective, ill-informed opinion, that he's got a shit squad.

'Course Benitez had the gall to say, as they finally got shot of him, that he'd left the club in good nick. Which is like watching a man fall past your twenty-seventh floor window and remarking on how good his skin looks.

Hodgson's always had his work cut out but at the moment he resembles a man trying to stop a runaway piano from going down a 1 in 4 hill. And it would be a damn sight easier if it didn't seem like the players and most of the board were sitting on top of the bloody piano while he put his shoulder to it.

Not that Woy's immune from criticism. Poulsen looks like his Voronin. Joe Cole is playing like a wasp in a jam-jar. Glen Johnson's form is literally indefensible. He looks less like an international full-back and more like a four-year-old who's just got off a roundabout.

And you have to look really hard at Jamie Carragher to reassure yourself that he is actually moving.

Thirty years after the death of Bill Shankly, there was an appropriately feisty march by The Spirit of Shankly supporters, demanding that Tom Hicks (T-Hick) take the first horse outa town.

It's a very understandable point of view. It's incomprehensible that the man can't just accept he and his grey pint-sized fellow prospector have done little more than trash a proud institution to the edge of insolvency and madness. And get out quick.

I guess they're afraid of losing face, or more likely money. Thing is, football isn't about money. Not to the supporter. It's about love. And love, like a lot of Liverpool's first XI right now, is blind.

It's also a dangerous sentiment when practical solutions are required. The worst noise Hodgson could've heard on Sunday (apart from the dim and ugly ping of the sinews of Torres's inside leg) was the chant of 'Dalglish, Dalglish'.

Every one knows Dalglish in Geordie is 'Shearer'. And look how he turned around Newcastle. He picked them up, dusted 'em down and marched 'em straight into the Championship.

The reason Al did that job was cos he couldn't turn down a loved one in need. Fact is, the Lard Ashley got him in cos whatever Al did he was beyond reproach as afr as the Gallowgate were concerned. Same with King Kenny.

The Liverpool board might soon be dead keen to get him in cos even if he can't reinvent Dirk Kuyt as a flaxen-haired Lionel Messi, he'd still be worshipped at the Kop End.
Dirk Kuyt dreams he's playing for Blackpool.

But then here's Hodgson's real problem. He's not allowed to tell the fans that their expectations are too high, even though they are. Mine would be too if I supported Liverpool FC.

Here's a club so steeped in its recent history that you need a bloody good mangle to squeeze all that sentiment out and give it a dose of reality. And the fact that Hodgson appears to be doing this by selecting teams with all the ambition and adventurousness of a giant panda's diet means he really isn't going to last long.

In the meantime the likes of Rushy, Kenny and co can gaze down on to their playpen and shake their sorry heads as Liverpool Football Club careers into the abyss.

As someone who grew up hollering for Liverpool in Europe, and who still rates that team Arsenal pipped in '89 as one of the finest sets of entertainers ever to set foot on English soil, it doesn't fill me with great glee to see the Red demise.

But, face it, my Scouse friends, the good times, Woy or not, are a long way behind you and until the white charger arrives bearing its truckload of Oriental cash, you'll have to make do with Average.

You've had a good run. Now Welcome To Our World.

  3. Woys problem seems to stem from not playing his strongest team. How many times did we say that about Rafa and yet Woy seems to be following that.

    Perhaps our resident scousers can help on this one. Why wont he play johnson in right mid? Is Kelly too slow? Or is it that they dont have enough pace up front when torres isnt there?

  4. Tragically chucklesome Robbo, still all you can do when you're in the bottom three (and I know about these things)is trust in your owner(s), chairman and manager (whoemver they might be) because they know best!

  5. Well done Ryder Cup Lads, and a great day for Kevin Davies!

  6. All too true Robbo and too painfully obvious for all to see. Equally obvious is the lack of alternatives - even if oriental cash comes in this month, we're not gonna be able to buy anyone till January, so it's already too late for this season. Between the yanks bleeding the club of any funds and Woy doing his darndest to play as average a game as possible, we're dead ducks right now and have just got to grin and bear it this season I'm afraid. Personally, I'd like to see Woy try something different, as his current strategy is obviously a failure, but like Rafa, he also seems loathe to admit he was wrong, and to change the gameplan (are all managers this way??). Whoever comes next, I hope he gives the youngsters a chance, even if we are to be relegated, lets go down fighting every game rather than just putting in one star-filled listless performance after another.

  7. thanks Liverpool, you're direness means Arsenal avoid the sharp end of Robbo's tongue. Same result but at least we can take the positives that we weren't out muscled this time, just Drogba-ed AGAIN. He must lick his lips when Arsenal come up. Bet he couldn't score that goal again in amillion years though. Well done Chelsea - you ground us down once more. Do you really enjoy watching it though?

  8. Robbo, you rule. You never fail to make me laugh, and you are inevitably spot on with your opinions. Looking forward to your evisceration of Gordon "let's arrogantly make fun of interviewers asking reasonable questions after we give up 2 late goals at home v. Pompey" Strachan.

  9. There is so much to celebrate about Liverpool's decline. There are so many ways to make fun of them.

    But Robbo, you son have said it better than anyone could. The ultimate insult. Welcome to the world of the Boro!!!

    --------
    Dont get it. I dont see any liverpool fans demanding the title, and the last time I checked , expecting wins over blackpool and northampton was pretty reasonable!
    And seriously, the squad aint half as bad as its made out to be. What was it, 10 internationals on the pitch and 3 on the bench?

    ReplyDelete
  11. You're spot on Squid. You could've faulted lack of depth in the squad, but for both the Northampton and Blackpool games we had our bext 11 fit, so for sure the squad's performance on the field was a poor reflection of their ability. It's sad to be blaming woy so early on, but if the squad isnt performing to its potential, what else can you say.

  13. I can see Liverpool playing UTD in the Championship within the next 5 years. Imagine that? I wonder what Fergie will say "Errrh, CITY is not our derby game, no it be Liverpool but in reality its now Stockport County" Lovely Bloody Jubbly.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Average for the while - perhaps.

    But brand Liverpool is so strong, once the asking price comes down to something resembling reasonable, someone will buy the club.

    We've signed people on our history before and it will happen again.

    It's still very early in the season, of course Liverpool are not "too big to go down", but it's churlish to suggest that a relegation scrap is really going to happen.

    Thing is, LIverpool are doing a perfect Leeds impression by going agonisingly close to winning a title and then getting relegated soon after.

    Dont think most of the fans are ready to admit or even realise the shite they are in.

    ----------------------------------------
    actually blogs, the debt is £237 million..a large figure but by no means an obstacle to being bought. the 700 squillion was how much the yank fucks wanted so that having screwed the club they could make a nice profit..thankfully they wont be getting that and the club can can find a buyer who can easily wipe out the debt (lets face it..blackburn are being sold for 350 mil) and we're good to go. the club makes a profit already, so no issues there.
    That problem is going to solve itself in a month from now, and it is very unlikely that liverpool will do a leeds and disappear from the PL. I think all the sensationalist talk comes from the sadistic pleasure humans get from seeing someone big fall, but at this point it is more sensationalist than realistic.

    the real problem now is getting the 12 internationals we have to play like a top flight team and not the neighbourhood school's junior girls team. No clue whats going on there.

    Could we be relegated? Possible, highly unlikely. Bottom half of the table, but live again to fight next season? Most likely. Top half/You're-Hopeless again? Possible, highly unlikely.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Morning chaps, and BHB if you're lurking.

    Lets hope that whoever buys Liverpool isn't exactly the same as the current owners eh? Pompey had a string of owners who weren't who they seemed to be and left pretty sharpish, taking the club further into debt each time. I can't see them getting relegated this season, but I also can't see Woy getting much more time if results continue as they have been. So when does the 'Big 4' become the Big 3, or who takes Liverpool's place?

    Congratulations to Kevin Davies. Been a huge fan of his since he scored a great header for Southampton at Old Trafford to beat IOU 1-0 back around 1997 (before they were IOU). I was going to put Bent in my FFL team, but if he's Capello's main man now, I think I'll wait till after this bloody international break.

  27. if the debt is 237 million and the bank takes over with the intention of getting their money back, then if the 399 R-Rob followers chuck in a million each, there'll be 162 million left over for new players and as the club makes a profit there'll be ample dividends to pay off the interest and some of the principal that each of the 399 incur. Those that don't have a million to bung in will of course get favourable terms from RBS for the full amount of their stake.

  32. Morning all.

    I think (how you shay)H2 got it spot on a couple of blogs back.The club has been grossly mismanaged by Rafa.The squad that Woy has is appalling.They have been reliant on 3 or 4 players over the last few seasons and they can't carry on doing that for ever.

    I think Woy will get there if he is given the time.It took him 6 months to get Fulham into a coherent team.

    On a side issue,Woy has been in the hot seat all throughout Europe and dear old McNulty thinks he's out of his depth.

    ReplyDelete
  33. McCuntly wouldnt know a hot seat from soiled diaper if it bust the crap on his head.

  34. Well Noel, currently Spurs are part of the Big Four if we base it on who's in the Champions League, how long we'll stay there though is another matter. We're going to have to play more consistently than we have been to shrug off City and Villa, though we've played both and not lost is a start.

  37. Will Woy get the time? Not sure
    but Jacks, there are 11 internationals on the pitch, what are they doing, apart from being crap

  39. There you go Noel.Point made.

    The thing with Liverpool was the spine was excellent.Reina:Carragher:St Gernard:Torres.The rest were just average players being carried.Carragher has lost it,Torres looks like Heskey,what more can Woy do?

    The owners may not help very much but it hasn't stopped Un**ed carrying on.

    I would suggest the nuclear option of sell Torres and St Gernard while they can and rebuild a squad capable of challenging for the top 4 again.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Minus Alonso and mascerano(spelling?), that is pretty much the same team that finished second just over a year ago. Owner problems or not, that team should be beating the likes of Blackpool etc. True, any team can win on a given day, but Liverpool have not been playing well at all, except for 10-15 minute spells here and there. Why is this so? I have no fucking idea. But Woy certainly isn't helping.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Anon, I dont think anyone realised the the importance of Alonso leaving, certainly Rafa didnt, and the last matches of 2 seasons ago, gave them false optimism, which resulted in 7th last year and now..............

    ReplyDelete
  42. Alonso was more important than anyone thought, but he's not that bloody good. Plenty of teams don't have an Alonso type player, Manu for one, but they seem to be doing ok.(Manu is a debateable choice right now, but you get the drift.)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Woy has made some poor decisions tactically, and by letting Aquilani go out on loan he doesn't have much creativity in the team. But even so, the players aren't all bad. But they're not playing for the club, the manager or the fans anymore. They're just not performing with any passion. That is what needs to change, and if it needs a player clear out or a manager who can get them excited about their football again, then so be it.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Man U have been crap this season so far, however they've always had and still have the knack of grinding out results no matter how shite they play, though I will admit if their defence keeps going to sleep as it did against Everton and Fulham they can forget silverware this year because it'll eventually catch up and bite them.

    ReplyDelete
  45. In fairness to Woy he's only been in charge for 7 league games.Plenty of time to turn things around.Would it be any different if Dalglish was in charge?

  47. It worked for Newcastle, Jacks, putting their messiah in charge. Oh, hang on.....

    ReplyDelete
  48. @Noel.. Too true. A player clear out is not an option right now but a manager change is. If it was your club would you dump Woy for Dalglish? For me I would have to say yes. He isn't just another Shearer, he did after all actually win titles, and his players then were happy to play for him, even if they were already good.

    ReplyDelete
  49. For now, I think nothing's going Liverpool way. They seem to make mess of easiest things on f'ball pitch. And over-reliance on Gerrard/Torres still continues... on one hand we talk of team building and then we put blame on the duo being out of form.
    I dont think Woy has in him to charge the team for big games, but he is definetely a good manager tactically. So, its upto fans and some players themselves to push the team to get that much extra in the game,

    ReplyDelete
  50. YNWA Roy = You now walk alone Roy. And no, I'm not a Fulham fan.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Anon - Liverpool aren't my team so it's not up to me to comment on whether King Kenny is better. He did win things as a manager, but then again, so has Woy. He's obviously a good manager and will get things right eventually, but I'm not sure he'll ever be seen as good enough for Liverpool. And whether or not the owners will give him the time is questionable. They'd struggle to sell the club if it looked like it was set to be relegated, so they may not give him the time he deserves. Like Jacks said, he's only been there for 7 games or so.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I guess we'll see how much the players love Woy IF they beat Everton, when they win their next game. Will the players run to Woy in celebration? me thinks no.

  82. next thing he'll say is liverpool's decline started once we let him go.

    as far as the woy debate goes..as a supporter i think 7 games are too few to judge a man by, but given how dire those 7 games have been, he should only stay if he can show he is willing to change shite(players, strategies, positions etc.). If he does and he gets us playing real football again, we will end up in the top half, which is all we can hope for from here on. If he does a rafa and steadfastly holds on to a failed set of strategies, then he needs to go as soon as he can. Should dalglish replace him? Yes..3 simple reasons:
    1. No one else wants the job
    2. He has won the league before
    3. Will not be afraid of primadonnas in the team being one himself

    Woy has an awful lot of tat to clear out.I suspect it will take him a while.The back 4 looks problematic,once he's sorted that out it will get better.

  88. Nothing pleases me more than to see Liverpool struggling. Scousers... cant bloody stand 'em. Whining, whinging twats who think the world owes them everything. They cause nowt but trouble! Scouse wit.... a phallacy along the lines of Newcastle are a big club (and every other "sleeping giant"), Boro are well supported, and Jordan isnt a slag!

    I'm actually hoping both teams go down (is it too much to ask for to see Sunderland go down with them), but I'd be happy just to see the red half plummet.

    Hicks and Gillett are the best things to happen to Liverpool.... Administration here they come !

  136. fbh - i know its a bit early but i sincerely hope the grasping conniving tory twats are having another poll tax moment

    any family on £45K single with 3 kids will lose £2500 child benefits. £45k translates into £30k takehome (top rate of tax, you know, same as Richard Branson wtf) so nearly a 10% instant tax rise - nearly a months pay - on this particular group of families.

    two earner families £40k each - £80k, dont lose a penny.

    youd have to be a moron not to spot this was unfair. OR youd have to be a cynical, callous wanker not to think it matters.

    the only two options.

    oh and lets not forget the bare-faced lying of a couple of months ago "we wont touch child benefits". bastard scum.

    but so obviously so that even the dim electorate of this country will spot it this time?

    fuck the football, lets have a riot.

  145. The London 2012 Olympic marathon will be re-routed to avoid east London, Lord Coe has confirmed.
    The new route will start in the Mall in central London, and take in landmarks that include Buckingham Palace, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Houses of Parliament before finishing in the Mall.

    A letter from Tower Hamlets council leader Helal Abbas to Locog chief executive Paul Deighton accused the London 2012 Organising Committee (Locog), which is chaired by Lord Coe, of being "ashamed of the very communities who helped London win the Games".

  150. Alright youse lot.

    Good stuff Robbo.

    It really does seem that L'pool are up shit creak and the owner of the paddle shop has closed up and gone on holidays. I also think that Woy has bitten off more then he can chew.

    I respect his management skills and I know he's won leagues with foriegn clubs, but isn't this the same guy who got sacked when Blackburn Rovers where in the relegation zone? He did well at Fulham, a team, with all due respect with pretty conservative expectations. Reaching an European final was the sugar on the cherry on the icing on the cake.

    L'pool however are a totally different prospect, their fans expect more and although I agree that Rafa totally bolloxed their squad, the basic team that he has with players including Stevie G, Torres, Kuyt, Reina and Cole should be nowhere near the drop zone.

    For those claiming that it is nonsense to think that L'pool will be involved in a relegation scrap all I can say is Leeds and Newcastle. For those who are saying it's only been seven games for Woy, well... you are incorect, there has been more, you were knockedout of the Kindergarten Cup by Northampton and managed a lucky draw against the mighty Utrecht under his stewardship.

    There is soething very very wrong at that club. As wrong as walking into a room and catching Wazza doing your gran while JT is making a vid of Maurinho giving your gramps head. That my friends is as wrong as it gets

    Not a bright idea if they retain the track. Football stadia with running tracks around the field have shite atmosphere as principal.

    "Hodgson must start to swing a few punches in his own defence. This does not mean a succession of outlandish statements designed to attract attention and headlines, but a few home truths delivered within and without Anfield."

  168. re the Tories and their latest attack on children:

    Thatcher only took the milk away, these current ones are willing to nip them in the bud.

    Then in 20~30 years time when the revenue stream would start drying up we could always import some easter europeans, if they still have a shite life at home as compared to a run down britain that even a Roma wouldnt prefer compared to his mobile home.

    well played.

  169. Nice article Jay. I think the last quote from Roy says it all

    “I’ve had two-and-a-half wonderful years (at Fulham) where nothing ever negative was said about me and my team. Now maybe people are saying negative things. It doesn’t change anything. I work the same way as I did last year.”

    There's your problem right there. The unshakeable belief that there is no difference between Fulham and Liverpool or Zamora and Torres. Sadly it looks like curtains for both the club and the manager this season. Ah well, there is always FFL where i have finally cracked the top 10..woohoo.
