Carragher Wants Scousers To Turn Into United

Carragher Wants Scousers To Turn Into United

Jamie Carragher has frequently expressed his admiration for Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United in the past. Now when asked about what Liverpool need to win the title he once again cast his eyes in the direction of the other end of the East Lancs Road.

As Liverpool have once again scored the winner at the dying seconds of a game, they are still within touching distance of us on the table and Carragher reckons they'll have to keep conjuring up late winners to have any chance.

"It`s something Manchester United have done a lot in the past to win titles and you`ve got to take your hat off to them because they`ve done it over the years and this season as well.

"It`s something we`ve not been too good at in recent years but we seem to have it in our locker this season and hopefully that will push us as close to the title as possible."


There is this myth in England that playing badly and still being able to win is the hallmark of champions. I saw Fulham and Bolton winning while playing badly but they do not have championship qualities. The hallmark of champions is that they play well most of the time AND are still able to win when they play badly.

Liverpool, contrary to Carragher's belief, do not have to improve in the latter. They have to improve in the former: they would have to start playing consistently well, something they haven't done all season. Deflected shots in the last minute, soft red cards and dodgy penalties can only take you so far. They have the luck of champions but they don't have the class of champions.

"Deflected shots in the last minute, soft red cards and dodgy penalties can only take you so far." Doesn't seem to have hurt you now, did it?

Come off it, you ABUs and scousers are still harping on about that penalty against Bolton, which was the last time a blatantly wrong refereeing decision went United's way. Since then nothing while Liverpool continue to enjoy the protection of referees as clearly seen against Chelsea.
