Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
I thought I might see you after yesterday.s games.
You are quite in order to be laughing ( as you no doubt you are.)
I watched both games and I have say that Liverpool
are looking very very much like a danger to us.
We were pathetic. There did not seem to be any organisation at all. This is unlike Mourinnho teams. The defence was all over the place - strange as we have the second best defensive record in the league.
The centre backs played as though they had never met; these guys are England Internationals though it is difficult to see how.
Especially Smalling who was lucky to get away with a penalty and then for some mad reason, he performs the most obvious dive I have ever seen. It was like a pig falling of a ladder. And to rub in the salt Newcastle scored from the resulting free kick.
Having said all that we managed to miss at least 4 " dollies" . The Newcastle keeper play out of his skin preventing us scoring. It was his first game !!!
Looks like being a rare fight for the top places. We can't play that bad again..........can we.
