Just got back from Villa Park ,would have been back sooner only with it being my
turn to be the designated driver, and what with my luck just getting worse with
every passing week, some dozy lummox decided that today would be a good time
to try and fit his car into my boot and shunted me at the traffic lights,needless to
say leaving me with three disgruntled and less than amused passengers .
Anyway enough about my day,lets talk about our performance specifically that of
Henderson and the absolute precision of Coutinho's sumptuous through ball for our
first goal,and then Henderson finishing with the finesse of Dalglish in his pomp.
Lets completely ignore our first half performance where if it wasn't for some woeful
finishing Villa would have finished the first half 2 goals up ,and have been every bit
worth their scoreline .
Lets simply forget the complete plethora of head scratching we the travelling fans
had to get through with Rodgers decision to leave Downing on the field
Maybe we should forget about the rigidity of our first half game plan in being solely
reliant on finding Suarez and then expecting him to conjure up a goal ? Or Gerrard's
game drastically improving after his argument with the referee,whilst its always nice
to see our captain and leader grab the game by the scruff of the neck ,it would be
nice if he could maybe move it up a notch with the same conviction just to justify
the title of Captain.
Jamie Carragher marshalled Benteke superbly and if not for Johnson failing to make
any sort of interception and Jamie being thrown by this just enough to allow Benteke
to get his shot off ,then he would have been my star man,as it stands that honour
goes to the energy and all round running of the innovative Henderson.
On 19 minutes Villa Park and both sets of fans stood and applauded Petrov ,which
really does make football seem quite insignificant when balanced against the life of
another human being.
Well anyway, up early tomorrow so will leave it there.
