Liverpool v Hull

Postby Conner99 » Sun Dec 29, 2013 9:55 pm

Liverpool suffered a second defeat in four days as they were beaten 2-1 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge , it followed the 2-1 loss by Man City on Boxing Day and from being top of the table on Christmas day the Reds now find themselves down in 5th place , manager Brendan Rodgers insists his side are still title contenders .."nothing is won at the midway point , we have shown that we are capable , if we can stay free of injuries and get a bit of luck we will be in wit a shout ".



Hull trounced Fulham 6-0 and had manager Steve Bruce raving about Tom Huddlestone and that he was the best thing since sliced bread (sort of), he said after the match .."Tom's been waiting for that goal. I've seen some great performances but I've never witnessed something as outstanding as what he produced today. Everyone else fed off that and joined in.The lads stood and applauded Tom when he walked into the dressing room and that doesn't happen often."He gave a masterclass of how to play in midfield. He had the lot, free-kicks, passing range, goals, a shot from 40 yards."

This has suddenly now become a vital game for us following our two defeats and now we have dropped from 1st to 5th and are suddenly looking over our shoulders,a few more mistakes and we could be in 8th :?

We are now up against a bang in form and very confident Hull team who have nothing to lose,this game could be a potential embarrassment if we don't go into the game with the right attitude as we saw in the away fixture a few weeks ago.

Hopefully Hull's Tom Huddlestone will have had his hair cut by now but it won't help the Tigers to win away at Liverpool.

Liverpool 3-1 Hull

I hear Gerrard is back and Sturridge will be back for the Stoke game.

Not sure who we'll have fit as Chelsea practically injured a few of our players.
I would rather see Agger at centre back and Sakho at left back as Agger isn't very effective high up the pitch on the left.
Mignolet's consistency isn't what it was at the start of the season so hopefully the clangers are behind him now.

I'm gonna go with a 2-1 to Liverpool

Yaarp, but you are playing Hull Davey! I get those sides mixed up sometimes if I'm honest! Hull can be a difficult team to break down, but at Anfield I can only see one result. Bear in mind, Fulham were garbage when they took that thrashing. Liverpool 3 Hull 0.

Sorry, I should of explained myself better... I meant Gerrard will be back tomorrow then Sturridge will be back the game after this :)

We can't afford to have such a thin squad at this time of the season. Hopefully we can get these two back asap.

We're now 4th so I'm happy with that.

Easy enough for the 'Pool, I' didn't expect too a stiff resistance from Hull. Still in the race!

Another completely contemptible tackle on Suarez ,in which the player has
led with his studs in the air ,these challenges are potentially career ending
and far more importance should be placed on the severity of the resulting
punishment.

I thought Lucas's importance to the victory was understated ,he stopped
Huddlestone's usual influence on Hulls midfield being less potent.

If Coutinho manages to locate his shooting boots ,then we have a potential
match winner ,his interplay and close control was a veritable joy to watch
yesterday.

I know Aspas has received some warranted criticism for his profligacy yesterday
granted only from certain quarters,but I hope Rodgers affords him more game
time to familiarise himself with the players around him ,because the guile and
ease in the touch for Henderson was the kind of quick thinking Suarez needs
around him in some games.

I genuinely believe he could raise his game to the extent Sterling's overall displays
have improved .....Sterling was dire ,until recently ,and yet Rodgers persisted with
the lad,I just hope Rodgers affords Aspas a similar amount of patience.

Last words on Suarez scoring from audacious free kicks with the same frequency we
expect a penalty to be slotted,and our brooding menace at home which adds a
disquieting feeling to visiting teams even before they step off the coach.

May it continue, long into 2014.

I hear that a Hull supporters coach was attacked on its way home by some Liverpool fans
who threw bricks and smashed up the windows but thankfully none of travelling supporters were injured.
