Liverpool And The Deja Vu Effect

mancityaug2010_450.jpg

Last night was the night that Liverpool, under new manager Roy Hodgson had its first game away from home.They were playing Manchester City, who for all their money should have been any easy team to beat. What happened though left the supporters with the feeling that the ghost of Rafa was in the stadium.

Roy, who earlier in the day was forced to change his team selection, due to the exclusion of Mascherano, put out what seemed on paper, a team capable of beating anybody.

The team was:Reina, Johnson, Agger, Carragher, Skrtel, Kuyt, Gerrard, Lucas. Jovanovic, Ngog and Torres.
Substitutes: Jones, Babel, Aurelio, Kyriakos, Maxi, Poulsen and Pacheco.

The evening though started with an announcement that everyone should look up to the giant screen.This was followed by an announcement that SheikhMansour , the owner ofManchester City was in the stadium.The camera then was then shone on a young man, who to be honest did not look old enough to own a football club, but then money as they say talks.

The game started with Liverpool kicking off and for a few minutes it looked as though we were going to produce the form that had seen us give Arsenal a good game.Then with the match only 31/2 minutes old the first mistake was made when Skrtel went into a bad tackle and was given a yellow card.From that moment, things began to go from bad to worst. The confidence that the team had arrived with, was taken out of them when Gareth Barry got through our defence and scored the first goal.Within minutes it was like Watch Liverpool Onlineing a horror show and all the frailties of last season were suddenly out in the open again for all to see.The team though pressed on but with Manchester City all over them failed to make any headway and left the field at half time 1-0 with little hope of pulling it back.Would the half time talk by Roy result in a different team coming back out, was the thought going through everyone’s mind.

That question was quickly answered and it certainly did look as though Rafa’s ghost had come back to haunt us.Nothing seemed to be going Liverpool’s way and after yet another poor defensive display and a complete muddle in the goal mouth, Tevez made it 2-0 to Manchester City. None of the players seemed to know what they were supposed to be doing and Stevie G seemed to be the only man on the field, who had any inclination to turn the game around.

With the rain down pouring down at Eastlands the horror show continued with Manchester City being awarded a penalty.This was taken by Tevez and with Pepe going the wrong way, the score become 3-0.

At this point Roy made two substitutions with Babel coming on for Torres and
Pancheo for Jovanovic.Unfortunately, although Babel made his usual one strike at the goal nothing happened and the matched end with Liverpool getting their first defeat of the season.

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?The true answer to this is, we may never know. There are of course several factors to take into consideration:

Mascherano was not in the right mind to play after having his head turned by Barcelona

Players such as Torres are still not fully fit after returning late from the world cup.

All the speculation about the takeover is possibly getting to the players.

What they must realise though is that a performance like that should have been consigned to the history books at the end of last season and must never happen again.
