Whatever you say about Liverpool (probably that they are boring and their manager rotates too much) they know how to make themselves look good at home to very very very poor teams. Just ask Derby, who they thrashed 6-0 earlier in the season, making us all think they might win the title before they went on their usual run of disappointing draws and losses. But after slapping Besiktas about 8-0, if one person thinks they have a chance now he is probably sporting a goatee beard and a strange love of moving things about,
“Porto need to come here to Anfield and they will be worried for sure.”
Actually, despite all our hard-bitten cynicism, he is probably right. And as unpopular as Benitez has proved this season, he is not making too much of Liverpool’s eight goals.
“The rest of Europe will also be aware of what we have done.
Uh, thump a crap team?
“But in the end we still have to win those last two games, regardless of how many goals we scored this time.
And then they can get on with the task of giving up on the Premiership and concentrating on the Champions League.
Also, in other news, any odds on Crouch and Benayoun not starting on Saturday?
