...ban it. Brendan Rodgers can go on about how his side got the “deserved 3 points” and the media can talk up their favourite team but for two stupid moments it would never have happened.
…it’s taken long enough. Seven and a half years, 202 games, four managers – with one caretaker – plus a number of better midfielders he either blocked from playing or hindered while being an automatic first team selection. I’m pretty sure after putting up with all that I’m allowed a smug “told you”. Posted after [...]
...dead. How many ex-professional players who are now media pundits confidently stated the League Cup final would be between Chelsea and Villa? How many are ever right and why do we really need them?
...a bit. Taking enough chances when they came and hanging on to a lead to see it out for the victory. Doesn't make for pleasant viewing until after the final whistle.
...League Cup game. I reluctantly tuned into BBC 5Live last night for the away trip to Carlisle in the League Cup, no sponsors here without some readies stumped up, it was the only option.
...deep fried. Glasgow Rangers pretty much started the death of Scottish football 25 years ago, could they now finish it off and be left standing and laughing?
...season. In the couldn't make it up department it goes to rival the UN choice of Robert Mugabe as their International Tourism Ambassador, Roy has half of Liverpool's under performers in the England squad.

...is the highlight. It highlights how the game went. Spurs went to Liverpool not to lose and came away with a point.
...plea. The ex-Chelsea and Milan boss wants to stay in England when he comes off his gap year and the F.A.'s choice as the next England manager could point the way where.
...the last few months. Spurs absolutely hammer an atrocious Liverpool in the Premier League four nothing in their best outing for months.
...Leeds, Coventry, Wolves, West Ham...and of course Spurs as Robbie Keane's boyhood club. He said he always wanted to play in the MLS, was it a joke?
...we're nothing. We're nothing. So said (Sir) Bill Nicholson, it may have been something whispered in 'Arry's lughole by Levy. What else could explain winning at Anfield for only the 4th time in 99 years?
...the transfer kitty this summer. After a run down of his buys since being made manager at Spurs it doesn't make for great reading and neither does the list of players he is linked with and talks about in glowing terms.
