No doubt. It had totally slipped my mind but I was reading zonalmarking.net last night and they mentioned L'pool's midfield not too long ago: Macherano, Alonso, and Gerrard. Not trying to rub it in, I'm just surprised that it was such a huge difference.
Bottom line though they good bring back a combination of Bill Shankly, Brian Clough and Alf Ramsey to manage England and it would not matter as the current crop of players just are not that good - we have one world class player in Rooney in his prime, maybe two with Joe Hart but the rest are either developmental players who MIGHT become world class or past their best like Gerrard/Lampard/Ferdinand.
That last Suarez strike was a thing of beauty. I agree with you that he's a frustrating enigma.
Hope today's Manchester derby is a good match at least.

Some may say its just a game. But it's about heroes and tribes, loyalty and devotion. It's our commitment and our passion, our battle and our belief.

That was what really finished me with Benitez. The disgraceful way he treated Alonso, who didn't want to go anywhere. Trying to off load him a year before he did do to get Gareth fricking Barry in. No wonder Xabi jumped at the chance to go home. And now he's dominating the Madrid midfield the way he still should be dominating Liverpool's.
A crying shame to see the sub-standard talent now to what was a few years back.
BTW, well done on clinching third and taking something out of this season. (Can't see you not picking up at least one win from the final two so I'll congratulate you now.).
And you don't get asked back there if you've not got something as a Coach.
*Edit* 'Luck Citeh tonight. No disrespect to the Utd fans on the board, but I'm sure you'll appreciate why.
Not that I have any feeling for City (even less so with the obscene amount of money); but the lesser of two Evils. *Smiles.

DC United with a good win over Houston this weekend and Tottenham rebounded with a nice 2-0 win. Going to be hard for Spurs to get that 4th position by blowing the game against QPR, but they do have a game in hand.
Redskins 2013 Opponents:
Home- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, Kansas City, San Diego
Away- Dallas, NY Giants, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Atlanta, Denver, Oakland
Exciting end for Everton to the season. Disappointing to not be able to make the Europa league, especially through the FA Cup, but hopefully Moyes likes what he sees and stays around to try to keep it going into the start of next year. Loving Jelavic... So nice to finally have a goal scored on Everton. So far, in the past 3 games where Cahill has not started? We have scored 11 goals, not counting the one he scored as a sub. Hes pretty useless...
Not concerned at all about Saturday against Chelsea. L'pool don't do losing finals 9 times out of 10. But the semi had me petrifified right upuntil the final whistle. First derby in a long time I fully expected to lose.

Ahh, 2005, the memory's. When UEFA had to cast another European Cup as that one is now forever in place in L'pool's trophy room. Only REAL big clubs actually 'own' a European Cup. Madrid, Milan ..... those irritants down the other end of the East Lancs that Utd just can't get past.
18+ 5 > 19 +3 ..... for any math challenged out there. *Grins bigger*
*Man I'm having fun here. Thank you man. Almost takes away from an impending City implosion I can see coming.

Oh, dislike away MisterP.
It's a 'healthy' way to be when it comes to L'pool/ Everton. STILL the game I want to win more than ANY other (I have to deal with the bitter blues on a daily basis) ..... but don't tell Richmond.
It'll ruin his delusions of grander that Utd actually matter.

Proudly displayed in European competition on the shirt sleeves of Ajax, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Madrid and Milan.
Darn Richmond, I never even pointed that one out. Their ALL after you man. *Grins super big*
