And there went our hopes of winning the Premiership! I am sooo disappointed with the way we played on Saturday. The lads just did not seem to want to play and that is was shocked me the most. Having beaten Real Madrid in mid-week, we go on and put in that kind of a display. Granted we were missing Torres and Arbeloa due to injury but surely a team of Liverpool’s status should be able to get passed Middlesbrough if we are serious title contenders. With that said, I think the Champions League now remains our best chance of getting any silverware this season. I can not see Man United dropping a lot of points now. As Rafa has now said, the title is United’s to loose.
I just wonder how different things could have been if we did not pick up all those home draws earlier in the season. This was our season to win but we have thrown it away and the loss to Middlesbrough virtually sealed it that we will not be Champions. We must also not forget that we must finish in the top four. I just hope we do not start to fall further down the table. The lads should keep fighting on.
I am finding it very hard to write this post as I am largely disappointed. Hopefully we can put fight past Sunderland on Tuesday and bring a smile back to my face!
