Liverpool 0 – 2 Arsenal
Those of you that watched the game and who have some knowledge of the game probably know what im going to say. In this league, you have to win your home games, that is a lesson we obviously need to learn from. Anyways, that is besides the point today. Liverpool had 80% of the procession. Brendan played Sahin and Allen as the two holding midfielders, I liked that a lot. Sterling and Borini playing wide with Stevie G support Suarez.
We did everything right. Passed the ball nicely, kept the procession and dictated play throughout the game. When Arsenal had a sniff they took their chances and scored. Our problem? we do not know what to do in the final 3rd. We seem to hit a brick wall. There is only so much Raheem Sterling can do on the left side. Suarez seemed to just run into defenders and look for penalties. We don’t have any attacking options. Remember, we were after a goal scorer in the window and didn’t get one. So what do we do? BR, was certain he was going to get a striker and this is one of the reason why we off loaded Carroll.
Here we are, 1 point in 9. You look to our bench, the only attacking players we have to come on are Jono and Stuart Downing. What do you do if your Brendan? How can you win a battle if you don’t have any weapons? The only decent player today was Raheem Sterling. The lad worked his socks off, even was tracking back to defend, superb. We seem to be putting all our hopes on him. Perhaps we should look to the reserves, give Adam Morgan a chance to shine? I really don’t know what we are going to do from here. Where are the goals going to come from? We don’t have a goal scorer. I am worried and very concerned. I feel for Brendan. It is not his fault. We have to look to upstairs. Directors and FSG? I still don’t understand how we could place more than 4 million for Clint Dempsey.
We have to keep the faith. We have to stay positive and we have to be patient. – Y.N.W.A
