Liverpool Message Board
against an 'average' Man U side who were there for the taking.
Very disappointed with the pretty average midtable football your players served up too, even Bradford City would have given a good account of themselves than crap I watched from your lot today..
When did Arsenal last "take" United then Slayer? Last season you did score two goals at OT, it is true. They scored how many? I think Liverpool put up a better fight this afternoon than Arsenal generally do there.
Still you can take City this afternoon. Oops, 0-2 at halftime.
"what does that make everyone else?"
Man City knocked out of Europe at the first attempt.
Chelsea failed at the first attempt in Europe.
Arsenal beaten at home by a mid-table Schalke side.
No wonder an average Man U side are clear favourites for the title, and this is NOT Barcelona
"We tried, but when you've 11 v 12 it's hardly a fair game is it?"
You had 12 against our 11, so it's us that should be calling it unfair!
Webb went out of his way not to appear biased towards United, and in doing so quite clearly favoured Liverpool.
Had it been any other ref, in any other situation, you would have finished the game with NINE men.
Where else have you ever seen a rugby tackle not even awarded a yellow card?
Or an attacking team, with a man down injured, refusing to kick the ball out of play, then allowed to carry on until they lose possession before blowing the whistle?
I mean this, Ralf.
Look away now if you don't want to hear the truth from a proper football man who knows his stuff.
Hansen on MOTD: "Liverpool were nothing short of abysmal in the 1st half, Suarez was very poor too and wasn't in the game. But they got better in the second half."
Alan Hansen echoing my exact sentiment.
You don't play as poor as Liverpool played in the first period and expect to win a big match. You have to give it all you've got from the off in order to have a reasonable chance of winning away from home.
How about then a ref who gives MU a goal which was offside.. yet it still stood.. Yet you say the ref favoured us? One match where he may have favoured us, doesn't make up for countless other times where he clearly favoured MU.
Yet the one critical decision he made was to allow an offside goal to stand.. handing MU 3 points..
So my assessmesnt pre match was right.. Webb would give MU 3 points and he did.
It wasn't offside, watch the replay, not a photo that tells the story you want to hear!
Look here, from the replay, Evra is quite clearly in front when it came off his head, Vidic then ran onto it.
Another one bites the dust!
