I think every Liverpool fan is asking that question. Why wasn't he played behind Torres? Why was Meireles, a CM - who has always played as a CM - now suddenly played wide on the right? Why wasn't Kuyt on the right, instead of behind Torres? Poulsen makes Lucas look like Xavi.
I'm certainly not one of the people who was happy with Roy coming but reading around even those that were are starting to apologise. Just what in the hell has happened?
It's not too late to turn it around, and who knows...a run of results might change the complexion completely but as it is...we suck, bad. It's early days, and my comment was in jest...but I fear for Roy if we don't beat Blackpool. **** will hit the fan.

Anyway, I didn't see the Arsenal game. WBA from what I've seen actually play some tidy football. Was it that or did Almunia just have a bad day again?
WBA played very well at Anfield, dominated possession and bossed Liverpool around. I didn't watch today's match either but apparently they played very well and deserved their win. Could be this season's Birmingham.

- As featured in The Independent.
"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

They have this very good holding midfielder, I forget his name but it could be Mulumbu. Against us he looked like he had oodles of time and picked the right pass almost without fail. Roberto di Matteo has done really well.
Torres was the same and, injuries or not, he is no closer to being "the best striker in the world" than I am!
It's about time that SOS and the Liverpool supporters get their head out of their arse and stick the boot up underperforming/overpaid players
Did you just watch the match? Gerrard was MOTM. Gerrard has scored 4 goals in 7 games this year. How has he been the problem? Torres has been injured sure, but scored 22 goals in 32 games last year. He could have scored again today but he selflessly gave the ball to Kuyt to make it 3 assists now in the last 2 matches. Based on what logic are these two the problem?

Felt a bit sorry for poor old Roy during his BBC interview. Completely incoherent waffle, the pressure is obviously getting to him.
Just going to have a bit of a boast about the City result today. While the game may not have appeared enthralling to the neutral, due to the lack of goalmouth action, thought it was still an absorbing battle. Chelsea were coming, rightly, as the team to beat, they are the Champs, and probably will be again, while we knew we had to up our game from recent weeks and rise to the challenge, and so we did.
Kompany and Toure continue to be outstanding at the heart of our defence this season, while De Jong ensures there's not too much for them to do. Hart had relatively nothing to do today, and Tevez took his half chance exceptionally well. A great day indeed!
