'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Title Favs Liverpool Write Off Their Chances Early

For those unitiated in English football: this was meant to be Liverpool's year. As was last one, and the one before that, and before that... But now, now they will really be there. The Guardian, the BBC, the Telegraph, ex-players, pundits, journos: whole armies were gleefully predicting the demise of United after the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo and they predicted that Liverpool, who weren't good enough last season despite all the luck in the world and despite doubles over us and Chelsea, would now set out to conquer everyone, after all they sold one of their most important players and replaced him with an injured one and, erm, ahem, they bought a right-back as well!

Well, not surprisingly, Liverpool were twice exposed by Villa and Spurs and one of their star players, goalkeeper Reina is already giving up the title!

'There isn't frustration, there is resignation.

'Maybe it's time to get realistic and not think about the title but just about winning the next game.'

'Can we win the league? I think so but there are other teams that are very capable of winning it - Chelsea, United, Arsenal, Manchester City.

'We can't set ourselves objectives. We all want to win the league but right now it is not a realistic objective.'


A Scouser talking sense? And don't forget, on the same weekend when Anderson scored a goal. There's something distinctly fishy going on here.

They would have won it last year if Torres had stayed fit IMO, and they still could this year depending if that new guy he bought to replace Alonso is any good. In truth I've never heard of him before, but if they have replaced Alonso well with him they'd still be 3rd favourites for me. Still think CSKA Chelski will walk it though.

Liverpool are a 2-man team most of the time, its all about Torres and Gerrard, although admittedly Benayoun can be quiet impressive. It was completely naive of Benitez (as i dont believe if the Liverpool fans had the choice of Mascherano or Alonso that they would pick Mascherano) to underrate Alonso's ability and then sell him. And they're being naive once again to write therselves off, no matter how much i love it the reality is there's 33 games to go theres plenty of time for slip-ups to occur for every other team.
