Oh Dear, Carragher Just Couldn't Bear The Defeat

Oh god - and we are the ones who are nervous? Nearing the end of a routine 2-0 win at West Bromwich Albion, Jamie Carragher had to be restrained from launching himself at Alvaro Arbeloa whom he pushed in the chest after some perceived error.

After Rafa Benitez could not bring himself to congratulate United, Liverpool's graceless campaign continues: they just seem unable to bear to face another defeat, another year of failure. However, I didn't expect it of Carragher of all people - though perhaps he is the most deeply wounded by his club's inability to compete with Manchester United.

I would have thought a Mascherano-Skrtel clash more likely - and more amusing as well! It's clear that the strain of watching us celebrating again took their toll on them and while they are arguing among each other, still not one of them could get himself to congratulate us on winning the title - while all of our players admitted that Liverpool had a great season and pushed us very hard.

Oh well, we can't expect Liverpool to be graceful in defeat, can we?

Rafa Benitez," I will say congratulations to Manchester United. They have done well" Yep how graceless was that. How about some grace in victory for a change, no didn't think so.

Jamie Carragher, "You can look at the statistics from this season and it's impressive that we've only lost two games and scored lots of goals, but United have got more points than us and credit to them because that's what matters." You're right, no Liverpool player congratulated Manu on winning the title.

FU, Rafa has refused to congratulate Ferguson but has congratulated Man Utd. Why should he congratulate Ferguson? Do you think the alcoholic would congratulate Rafa if the positions were swithced? I seriously doubt it - he refuses to come out for post-match interviews when his team loses!

FU, I read the whole article. The author of the article claimed that Rafa didn't congratulate Manu when he did. The author of the article also wrongly claimed that no Liverpool player congratulated Manu. Rafa wouldn't congratulate Ferguson, and after the jesture stunt that he and his lap dog Allardyce pulled last month why would he. You can't expect to be congratulated by someone after calling him contemptable and arrogant and describing what he did as beyond the pale, especially based on such flimsy evidence as that jesture. To do that is to be a t*t of a manager.
