We'll Miss Liverpool, Won't We?

We'll Miss Liverpool, Won't We?

Oh my. Liverpool, in 180 minutes, scored as many goals against group whipping boys Debrecen as Lyon did in 6 minutes in the Puskas Stadium. No wonder Steven Gerrard gloomily concluded: 'You get what you deserve in football.'

So, our heart bleeds for Liverpool whose Champions League adventure ends here... and imagine what would have been had they got, for instance, Wolfsburg from Pot 4. They might not have made even the Europa League where they'll get a chance to save their season from total disaster.

We'll miss them, won't we? Well, not really. The main worry (and what prompted this article) is that elimination from the Champions League could trigger the sacking of Rafa Benitez... and with Guus Hiddink available, that would be worrying. It's been so long since Liverpool last had a competent manager, keep it this way please.

I might add that finally we do not hold the unflattering title of "last English club to crash out of the group stages".

Well at least they have the pleasure of playing in the EL and travelling to play clubs from Cyprus, Iceland, Romania, Poland and the likes.

I'll place a bet with any Chelsea or United fan that Liverpool win at least as many European trophies as either of your sides this season. I'll bet a fiver with ANYONE willing to take it. Lets see where your bottles are.
