Glorious Failure. This is one way to describe Liverpool last night after a dramatic match which involved Liverpool losing on the away goals rule to Zenit St Petersburg. The match was a great one and typical for Liverpool this season; more mistakes defensively have left us with too much catching up in games and the season overall.
Unfortunately the victory masks the fact that we are out of all cup competitions before the end of March. Lost at home to Swansea in the League Cup, Lost away to Oldham in the FA Cup and now out at the last 32 in the Europa Cup. That is a very poor return and although I see progress being
made at the club the stats tell a different story. Even in the league we are at exactly the same points total as last year after 27 games. I hope we don’t finish of the rest of the season the same way as 12 months ago.
To be honest we are in a bad state at the moment and my usual joke of ‘next season’ is becoming depressing and unfunny as I know ‘next season’ will probably not bring much either. In spite of all this talk of gloom I am a forever optimist and I believe that we will win the title next season. Those last two sentences sum up a Liverpool fan perfectly. YOU CAN DO ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!
My predictions for Liverpool the rest of the season is for good things and good times. I believe Sturridge and Suarez will help us up the league to the dizzying heights of 6thand that may be enough for a Europa League spot. This should therefore encourage some better players to sign for us in the summer and then who know what is possible nest season. I think Man United will win the league ahead of Man City by about 5 points with Chelsea and Tottenham completing the top four. Gunners, well, enjoy Thursday night football it is awesome.
