Title Favourites Beaten By Their Own Beach Ball!
This is Liverpool's year, the newspapers declared. They are simply a greater force than Manchester United and a more settled team than Chelsea, cooed the ever-so unbiased websites. They only have to get rid of the draws, we heard.
Well, they have done that: now they're losing every second league game it seems. Four defeats out of nine matches - but no draws! And hilariousness reached a new level with Liverpool today: they lost to a Darren Bent goal which was deflected in by an inflatable ball, the sort of you see on the beach.
Their players were outraged but the real fun here is that the ball had been thrown in by a Liverpool fan and it had their crest on it! It's fair to say that this beach ball was the most dangerous of all those wearing a Liverpool badge...
I suggest Rafa should sign it up: would be no worse than Voronin! And it would certainly work out excellently, as this is Liverpool's year, that's for sure.
