here we go again...

yep, liverpool lost again, this time 1-0 to bolton. crap, i can't believe this is happening. i mean, it's bolton for god's sake. no disrespect, but i thought if you're gonna be challenging up there with the big boys, games like this are where we're supposed to grind out results. but no, bolton made the entire team looking like red riding hoods searching for their grandmas. this sucks. this is why liverpool had not won any major titles in recent years. bolton were controlling the match and we had no chances whatsoever. credit to them, it was a deserved three points, although i do believe it was a wrong decision to disallow garcia's goal near the end. tv replays show clearly that he was in line with the defender but it doesn't matter much now. i concede that we should give the referee the benefit of the doubt, but then again, saha pretty much slapped the ball with his hand to smith for man utd's last minute equalizer, what a great league, huh?

honestly, i don't think liverpool will be competing for the title come end of the season, i just can't see that coming. alonso and garcia are exciting, but they don't look like they're up to. alonso kinda disappearred into the match and garcia's making way too much mistakes. the only players that came through with credits are josemi and warnock, but the youngster lasted only half a match. i'm so sick and tired watching these so-called 'world class footballers' performing shit week in week out. no one bothered to go for tackles and we lost all 50-50 balls. there seems to be a message written on their foreheads that say,"i'm the star in the team, i can't get injured. let the others do the tackles and chasing, i'll just stand here and make miracles happen". what a load of shit.

i'm thinking next may, the only teams capable of mantaining the challenge for the title would be arsenal and chelsea. they seem to be well-equipped to go all the way. arsenal don't look to be satisfied with their record, i'm wondering when will they ever burn out. chelsea, although not as exciting, is amazingly effective. 3 points is all that matters (how i wish houllier stayed with liverpool now). sorry to man utd, it does appear that they're losing their touch. with players like bellion, djemba-djemba and kleberson making it to the regular lineups, it starts to look like the liverpool in the 90s, where there's no depth in the squad. but lets just keep our fingers crossed and hope that by the end of the season, it'll be a nail-biting finish with all the teams roughing it up for the title. well, it's only 3 games into the season, there's much to hope for. but then again, it's only the 3rd game into the season and things already don't look good, sigh...
