The fact this narrow victory was clawed out when we really were below par
says far more in terms of Liverpool being credible top four material than the
game against the gunners.
We played until the last minute pressing forward in the almost futile belief
something would evolve that would see us leave with 3 points.
Its a trait I begrudgingly found the most admirable component of Uniteds game
under Ferguson ,and yesterday Gerrard gave us a glimpse of the indomitable
spirit that used to be so synonymous with his name.
A clipped ball for Sturridge was shaped by an extremely talented foot ,more
precision and accuracy you would struggle to find if it was chipped by Woods
using a sand wedge.....
Anyway I'm currently on my third portion of 'Humble Pie' thanks to Gerrard's
brilliant performance last night ,so that's enough about him
Suarez was quiet ,but still managed to pull off a Bergkamp flick timed with
the utmost precision and delivered with consummate ease ,something I
would happily pay double the ticket price to witness .
Kolo Toure looks for all the world like someone lost in a building ,pointing to
his badge like he belongs, whilst disbelieving security guards wrestle him
to the ground .... "Honestly I'm supposed to be here"
3 points and a battling performance that could see our confidence rising even
more so than the Spurs and Arsenal games.
