Did you know that Liverpool have won seven and lost just one of the last 10 Premier League games against West Ham.

Also Glen Johnson has scored in three of his last five Barclays Premier League games against former club West Ham, including the last two trips to the Boleyn Ground.

Any more comments or predictions? Do the above stats point to another Reds win at Upton Park and will Johnson score against the Hammers again?!

FT

West Ham 1-2 Liverpool
0-1 Gerrard 44' PEN
1-1 Demel 45'
1-2 Gerrard 71' PEN

Liverpool go back to the top of the table with their 9th win in a row.

It was a DISGRACEFUL decision though by the referee to give them a 2nd penalty as Jon Flanagan certainly dived.

The referee Anthony Taylor had a night mare game as had early over ruled the linesman and allowed West Ham to score.

I guess because of that early error he was going to even things up for the Reds ASAP but 2 wrongs do not make a right!

Meh, Liverpool were perhaps a tad lucky, but once a pen has been awarded you just have to get on with it. West Ham offered very little in an attacking sense so I wouldn't say they were robbed. They did put up
a great defense to deny Liverpool many clear chances, but with very little goal threat, the result was predictable.

Liverpool had to win today so mission accomplished. The games against Chelsea
a and Man City are the games that will decide the title.

Every team that has pretensions to win the title has a performance like
that in their armoury just sitting waiting to be used ,well today we used
it ,today wasn't pretty ,it wasn't fluent ,and it certainly wasn't anything
like the fine football we have been playing of late, but it was effective
and we held our own against one (if not the ) most aggressive teams in
the Premiership.

Any fan who's teams are challenging for the title will tell you the same thing
these are the performances they long to see from their team ,performances
were every player brings their respective war face ,and gets stuck in for a
common cause ....It was a game were either side offered no quarter and the
tackles flying in were wholehearted ,and Stewart Downing actually beat his
man ,such bizarre quirks of nature are usually reserved for the 'Twilight Zone'
Carroll clearly had a point to prove ,and even a trivial nuance like Mignolet
claiming the ball would not prove a barrier to his eagerness to play Basketball
with our goalkeepers head for the Demel goal.

I actually thought the second was a definite penalty ,but he did prevent Flanagan's
movement towards goal.

Pictorial evidence provided below

(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))

5 games to go and the masters of our own destiny ......I cant wait for next week ,the noise
and excitable nervous energy from Anfield is going to knock out the National grid.

shakey performance but that's how it goes against the hammers who are tough customers for sure!

Happy with the result...tho Sakho/Toure make for extremely nervous watching when they defend.

Henderson...sigh...enough said.

Onto the next win...

I was surprised with Gerrard's comments after the game,as with the game won
we could have left without compromising our dignity and kept the comments on
West Hams alleged spoiling tactics to ourselves..... For those who aren't aware
of what Gerrard said.

"It was a very tricky game today. Coming against a Sam Allardyce team, we knew
what to expect," he told LFC TV.

"I think we got a bit more than what we expected - a hot dressing room, a dry
pitch, the bus had to park a mile away. I think they tried everything today to
upset us.

Rodgers showed real class in the humility he showed when quizzed on Sky Sports
after the game about the Carroll incident ,I would have expected the Captain of
our team to do likewise.

Incidentally speaking to a couple of the lads who made the trip to the Boleyn and
were sitting amongst Hammers fans ,they said the Hammers fans were absolutely
Top boys ,even went for a bevy with a few after the game apparently a few of
their boys were saying if they had set up with the same menace and tenacity they
would have pi*sed all over United.....Or words to that effect.....Apparently Antony
Taylor said his car had its windows smashed and was then torched just before ripping
up his Liverpool air freshener.......Don't know how true it is :wink:

Quite. i was quoting you more as a sounding board rather than in an attempt to embroil you in a back and forth about the gutter dwelling intergrity of Mr Gerrard - getting it off my chest, if you like.

i think you heap far too much credibility on our men in black though to be honest.

i think to suggest these human beings are in no way corrupted by the opinion of others in their decision making is wishful thinking. perhaps they may not be wilfully corrupt but subconciously these things will play a part. clubs, matches and individuals are all refereed differently and that indicates unmistakable bias in their thinking.

whether it be the 'victim' of the 'perp' that affects the decision making it is undeniable that referees have this in their mind when making decisions rather than judging each incident on their merits. when you're a club managed by Sam Allardyce you generally notice this more and more. this season has been an absolute shocker for bad decisions.
