Round Table: Man City v Liverpool: Scapegoats Paradise

Posted by Corkboy on February 3, 2013, 07:28:23 PM

Back in the olden days, religious folk of a certain persuasion would nominate one unfortunate goat, on whom their sins would be metaphorically laden and then they would banish said goat to the wilderness, along with all the sins. It was a pretty shitty thing to do to the goat.

Reina has always charged out. Always. Remember when he viciously assaulted Robben so badly, Rafa Benitez was moved to enquire after the poor boy's health? Pepe is a boisterous keeper, that's why he rarely gets the hackneyed, "ooh, the foreign keepers don't like it up 'em, do they" garbage. This time it didn't work out too well, but Aguero's finish was sublime. Or poxed flukey. Either way, Reina could charge out ten more times and there wouldn't be a goal in it. Agger may as well have put down fluorescent lighting for Dzeko when he scored the first but will we all call for him to be shipped out? Behave.

Right. Now that we've got that out of the way....

Systems/formations/set up? It looked like 4 4 1 1 without the ball, and when we had the ball, it was so fluid, I couldn't tell.

Sturridge was outstanding. Use all the different words you can think of to agree with me.

Carragher did well. Again.

Henderson as a left mid/false winger? The lad has such an engine that he can actually cover 1.5 positions quite easily.

The Lucas train gathers momentum, one stray pass out of defence notwithstanding.

And finally, is Gerrard back to his "GEEERRRRRAAARRRRRDDDDD!" best?
