    • I do Definatly....Think about it..Arsenal are guaranteed 4 th spot..like we know..have to play Chelsea,in Cup semi.. than a poss F.A final .return of Villareal...and the poss semi's of the C/l....2 legs than poss C/L final...so why will they kill themselves against pool(like most teams haven't ) and face more injurie's of crucial player's at a crucial time of the season ..Galla's is already out for the season,and the keeper for a couple of week's ....i would love nothing better then Ars....to have a real go at pool...but what would be their gain...pride(with poss injurie's) v (poss Trophey's)....

    • The only problem is,like you say Lester,Arsenal play Chelsea, in the cup..while l'pool pick whatever....then play l,pool......So they(Arse) are already guaranteed 4th spot,not their cup final,so might not bother as much(rest players etc).So i've got a horrible feeling,..a home win for pool...we should play most kids against Everton...to avoid burn out.....take a chance...

    • They play before us every time for the next 4 matches.
      Arsenal will have spent saturday playing chelsea, the scousers picking their noses.
      Liverpool should win all of these remaining matches they've got. They know they have to else we get two more chances to cock it up some more. I have to say that our run in looks much harder the closer it gets, especially if we pull it off on Wednesday. I think a lot of scousers will secretly want us to sneak past Porto in order to cram our schedule. I think if we put up a good fight but fail the EPL is ours, ironically.
      A headed winner from Micky for the Arse next week would be nice though.
      I've deleted most of the most worthless arsewipes, but it's still pretty scouse free in here this morning.

    • Lynden, like i've said a few times now, I don't knock Berbatov as a player. I do honestly think he is a good player, just not what we needed, and he still doesn't really fit into our preferred and best suited style of play.
      I hope you're right and he does produce a bit of magic that wins the game for us on Wednesday, and I will happily praise him all night long for it if he does!

    • yes rooney/tevez is more potent but like you say dimi has scored a few in the cl and i just have a feeling he could turn this round, he only needs to show that 1 piece of magic, a bit like our eric used to.

      fa cup 96 proportions lol

    • Beba had a good game today, and produced a great run holding off 2/3 players before releasing the ball to Rooney, whose cross made Scholes goal. He's had he's fits and starts this season, but I believe we will benefit from having him in the side, as he's totally different from most forwards. The lad has class. Ala Cantona!

    • I agree Lynden, Berbatov is usually brilliant in the CL. However the Rooney-Tevez partnership should never have been tampered with, I want to see those two together more.

    • quite agree with you steve, play him with rooney behind, the beauty being everton wont know what to expect from macheda, i would start him, just 1 thing on berbatov, he is the player who could make the difference in the porto match, he is a different player and could be the 1 to win the game as he has that little something (when he wants to) to unlock the porto doors. if he does, please remember to comment lol

    • Its still early days for the lad, but he's certainly made one heck of a first impression. He's saved us from dropping points 2 games in a row now in impressive style. Its mouthwatering to think of the prospect of what sort of partnership him and Rooney could potentially form. From what i've watched of him in the reserves, and the last 2 weeks, he's exactly the sort of striker I wanted us to sign last summer, as appose to Berbatov. Macheda up top with Rooney roaming behind him could be a deadly duo one day. I hope he gets a few more chances before the end of the season. I doubt Fergie will, but I would be half tempted to stick him in against Everton in the FA Cup next weekend and see what hes really made of
