Round Table: Liverpool 2 WBA 1

Three points. Ooh, the luxury. Remember this feeling? Because let's face it, as football fans we are a fickle lot of drama queens and club spirit can often be an illusion created by winning. We have short memories and shorter patience levels. I am grimly glad of these three points, I will keep them and take them out later to look at again. A draw or a loss and I think we might be in full meltdown mode now, with anguished calls for the manager's head.

We still don't look right, mind. Any team playing us at the moment feels they will score and they're usually right. Today's example was never a penalty but they had enough chances to deserve a goal anyway. But we scored one more than them and that usually does the trick in football, Gary, at the end of the day.

Standout performers were Henderson and Lallana, Johnson looked muscular in his cameo, both Lambert and Balotelli put in a shift and overall we looked a little more menacing, a little more pressing. Not quite there yet, though. It was interesting that the manager put Lucas where Gerrard was when he came on and Gerrard much further forward and sure enough he and Mario linked up pretty well, a combo your OP certainly hadn't considered.

Anyway. Top six. Better.
