Liverpool v Aston Villa

Assuming the Houllier thread isn't the match thread....

 

Right, any team news?

 

First time we've been without both Gerrard and Carragher since 07 when we beat Derby 6-0.

Villa are poor, Houllier has managed only one win in about 9, so this should be three points given our decent home form.

 

Hoping for

 

Reina (Capt)

 

Johnson Skertl Greek Aurelio

 

Meireles Lucas

 

Kuyt Cole Maxi

 

Torres

I like that 11, but with Kuyt up front, Maxi right, and Cole left.

 

I suspect that. in light of Cole's fragile comeback from injury, that he will be benched and that it will the team you've picked but with Ngog upfront alongside Torres. I think it was telling that Ngog didn't start in Bucharest. Aurelio may well be preserved too.

I'll be overjoyed with a point here. It really has got that bad.

 

We're at home. We'll win. Everything will be rosey again. Until the next away game.

 

That will be the pattern of our season. Never being able to build up a head of steam against the Manager because he'll have home victories to split the derisory away performances. All hail mid-table mediocrity.

I won't be overjoyed with anything.

 

That's my biggest problem with RH, he's taken all the fun out of it.

 

It's not that I feel a win will keep him in a job longer because we are well past the stage where he is one defeat from the sack, it's just that you know no matter how good the win, or even how good the performance (and lets be honest, they are never THAT good despite what he says), the next humiliating defeat is only days away.

 

A good win used to give optimism that a run of bad form was over, we were always capable of going on a good solid winning streak. I'd love to think that putting a few past Villa could be the start of a 10 match sequence that could see us get right back into the mix for 4th. But I would have to be a complete and utter idiot to believe that given the evidence of this season. He is just not capable of that kind of run.

 

It really hasn't - our home form is ok

 

Thank f*ck for that!

 

I had this really bad dream about Blackpool and Northampton, but I won't burden you with it.

So 8 wins 3 draws and 1 defeat (plus the pens loss) isn't ok? Ok that is, not good, not great, but ok

Northampton wasn't in the league, and I think he means that whilst it clearly isn't mind blowingly superb, we'll obviously pick up a decent-ish amount of points at home. We've currently won 4, drawn 2 and lost 1. That isn't great by any means, but it's also not disastrous (relative to our away form obviously).

I guess it's all relative, but I refuse to accept the lowering of expectations. I guess OK has a different definition to what it had a season or so ago.

 

Any run of form that has defeats to Northampton and Blackpool in it, and a draw to Sunderland, can only be described as bad. And form implies performance not just results, and our performances have been pretty appalling even in matches we've won.

So we've won just over half of our home games. In fact if you count Northampton, we've won exactly half.

 

Yeah, home banker tonight, deffo.
