O'Shea Hopes To Have Destroyed Souls

O'Shea Hopes To Have Destroyed Souls

Much-maligned (by me, at least) United midfielder/defender/goalie John O'Shea scored one of the most important goals of the season at Anfield on Saturday and he's delighted.

The Irishman reckons it must have been terrible for Chelsea who might have been rubbing their hands in delight over the prospect of the Reds dropping some points.

That must have been soul-destroying for Chelsea,' he said. 'We've been in that position before and it really is soul-destroying. With a couple of minutes to go they must have been watching the game thinking we were going to drop two points, maybe even three. They were probably thinking Liverpool could nick one because we were down to 10 men and only just holding on. Then we go down the other end and score the winner.'

How many times we got the same feeling when watching Chelsea... JOS forgot to mention it, he opted for defending our wins in the last two league games.

'It's been fairly rough over the last couple of games,' he admitted. 'We haven't been as fluent as we can be but we keep winning, don't we? It's a case of digging deep and you have to give us credit for that.'

Someone gave it but I would never have expected from him: Dirk Kuyt. The Dutchman proved to be a graceful loser and his words gave me the feeling I had when Alan Hansen defended Ronaldo after the game at Middlesbrough: utter astonishment.

'United have shown throughout the season that they are the best team in the land,' Kuyt said. '

People will say they were lucky to beat us but, if you're going to win the championship, you need that bit of luck and it does look like they are going to be champions.

'As a Liverpool player it hurts to say it but they are virtually there and they deserve it for what they have done over the season. You can't deny they are going to be worthy champions.'

Thank you, Mr. Kuyt. Though the race is far from over, your words are as welcome as unexpected.
