Title Favourites Beaten By Their Own Beach Ball!

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.

And to think this site is a Manchester United fan site. You have to be pretty sad to write every other article about a team other than your own.

No one to blame but their own fan's undoing! But to be honest, I'd much rather concentrate on us more than that lot! WE HAVE TO PLAY BETTER! I almost feel nothing that Chelsea and the scummy gits lost thanks to our horrid showing!

Aamir - you said that about us as well :-)

I'd concentrate on how fortunate you were against Notlob today before you go laughing at the scousers. Let's face it, they are looking pretty poor, especially without Torres & Gerrard, but you look poor without Rooney, and would be even worse without Giggs as well. Better pray neither of them pick up any serious injuries, otherwise your slightly ropey form will turn into disastrous form. Not that I would mind of course :P

fifth - It seemed like we were fortunate when clearly we should've been outta sight long before they scored. Just like the game against your lot, we let them back in it. Once again, we failed to take our chances. We were fantastic throughout but lost it after they scored. Overall, I think the better team won.

I really think we should and could have done so much better against Bolton - Berba was good - should have got at least one goal though, and watching Owens movement off the ball was fantastic to see - his finishing is still a little rusty though, but he will pick up that sharpness soon (I Hope!)

Their keeper was amazing. On the subject of the dippers what was their fan thinking he asks for the beach ball back and then delibrately punches it back onto the field. As amusing as it was that guy should get his head kicked in.

Now for the Vital Man United fans HEHEHE. Would be funny if United fans bombarded anfield with the beach balls before the game.

NRD - Apparently the Liverpool stewards are searching your lot on Sunday before entering Anfield just in case any beach balls are being smuggled into the ground. Thats what some of the papers are saying anyway.

It was inevitable. I can see them banning balloons in pre match entertainment now. I still think some will get through if anybody gets thrown out as a result of it would be pathetic. I would expect the same if it happened to us, no sense of humour in dipperland.
