Its just like the reds to make me start believing again ,I'm not implying a win
against Southampton away should scratch away any reservations and possibly
blur the lines between fantasy and reality ,but this is a massive victory and if
it hasn't already resurrected the hopeless fool who still harbours wild notions
about us making a concerted tilt for the title ......Then its pointed out where I
Suarez was simply mesmerising earlier ,but Joe Allen was my unsung hero ,the
lad done more running than Henderson .....TIRELESS.
Mignolet has been criticised of late ,but I thought his save to deny Rodriguez
was immense in terms of the direction of the game ,Southampton were looking
threatening and a equalizer just before half time would have afforded them even
greater confidence whence they returned for the second half.
The real Glen Johnson actually made an appearance ,I'm hopeful we can now
remove his face from the back of the milk cartons we were on the verge of
printing up.....Seriously ,every player worked their socks off and our back four
looked impenetrable with Skrtel and Agger particularly colossal.
Rodgers has pitted his tactical acumen against one of the freshest and most
innovative in the premiership in Pochettino,and he emerged with all the spoils.
Game Intelligence aside this was a game were anything less than a significant
show of teeth would have proffered Pochettino and his impressive charges more
than a shard of light in this encounter.
Second in the league and rampant romanticism just about suppressed
