    Might as well create show my support here officially. What a great run we had last year with Sturridge and Suarez.

    This year has been a bit disappointing, but frankly, we overachieved last year. Still in the League Cup (semi against Chelsea, ouch) FA cup, Europa League, and within striking distance of the top 4.

    This weekend is against Sunderland. Good luck Ben.

    Yeah, it's ok. He is a bit long in the tooth for me. I'm looking forward to it actually, because it will force them to upgrade the midfield. Most sure how Lucas found is way back in the first team, but they really need to upgrade it.

    The defense gets a lot of flack, but the midfield is equally as bad.

    Good on you for declaring not in the season you're rocking and rolling, but rather in the season you aren't the best. Gives a nice anti-bandwagon vibe.

    Now you're up 1-0 and 11 men to 10. Finish those kittens off, will you?

    Wow, going down to 10 men actually helped Sunderland. So many teams don't play with heart for entire games, then suddenly turn it on when they lose a man. I'm not just singling out the kittens here; it's true of many teams. Weird.

    True. I would want to step on a team's throat and try and beef up your goal differential when you are up a player.

    Thankfully for Liverpool though, Sunderland's team is pretty bad this year. They were lifeless, no ideas etc. Glad that Markovic got is first PL goal. He and Coutinho played great.

    They are going to have to make some moves in the transfer window, switch formations... something.

    They look like a side that isn't going to stay in the top division....

    What a great Capital One cup tie. They gave Chelsea all they could handle. An ugly game that was beautiful at the same time. Both sides attacking, pressing for 120 minutes. Yet we have incidents of Diego Costa stepping on Liverpool players twice without any punishment and Jordan Henderson deliberately handling the ball which would have been a sending off.

    Great game, and a crappy way to lose a cup tie...in extra time of the second leg.

    So Costa was given a 3 game ban for his behavior in the Capital One game, which means he will miss the upcoming game against City. Big loss for Chelsea. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy....

    We should have won this Merseyside darby. We had them on the ropes a couple of times but just couldn't punch it in.
