Yeah, I know, Torres was injured a lot. And yes, there were the home draws against lesser teams which cost them. However, the brutal truth is that almost everything went right for Liverpool this season and it still wasn't good enough.
They scored more goals in stoppage time than any other club - they scored more in the dying minutes than United did in 1998/99! They did the double over us and Chelsea - tell me, what are the odds of that happening again?
They accumulated their highest ever points total and still could not take us right to the wire. United were some way off their best, scoring only a measly 67 goals so far. We played an astonishing amount of games, we played in every three days' through almost the entire season.
Meanwhile, Liverpool quickly dropped out of the Carling Cup and the FA Cup, they were knocked out of the Champions League in the quarter-finals so they only had to focus on the league. And still, it was not good enough.
We had, for the biggest par of the season, a below-par Ronaldo, we had an underperforming and increasingly unsettled Tevez, Berbatov had problems blending into the squad and getting used to our style of play - and we had Owen Hargreaves out for the entire season. Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville and particularly Wes Brown were dogged by injury problems throughout the campaign but still the defence was the strongest part of the team.
So the truth is that with all our problems and with Chelsea's disintegration under Scolari, Liverpool had an excellent chance to win the league and they blew it, they still could not cope with Manchester United's consistency. Will they have a better chance for next year?
They'll have to sign two or three players, we are told - well, I hope they sign a Robbie Keane and a Dossena again.
