You know, Hale, you can’t read about the game unless you watch it.

So don’t be coming here tomorrow looking for all the ins and outs, unless you saw it~

Here’s a homework assignment, study up on your kits.

Know how the all red came in:

First all red kit – this was decided on after discussion between Bill Shankly and Ron Yeats. “He thought the color scheme would carry psychological impact — red for danger, red for power. He came into the dressing room one day and threw a pair of red shorts to Ronnie Yeats. ‘Get into those shorts and let’s see how you look,’ he said. ‘Sheesh, Ronnie, you look awesome, terrifying. You look 7ft tall.’ ‘Why not go the whole hog, boss?’ I suggested. ‘Why not wear red socks? Let’s go out all in red.’ Shankly approved and an iconic kit was born.”

  1. Thoughts: They played so badly in the 1st half, that I wasn’t even upset when the first, beautiful goal, went in. They just didn’t deserve ANYthing out of that game. But then, of course, they pulled you back in with the Gerrard/Sturridge goal and made you want the draw. It was a lousy effort on Liverpool’s part. Joe Allen should not be in the first XI. Way too lightweight in midfield and Lucas is not back to fitness and they are both similar players.

    Sturridge should have started. Sterling, more and more is underachieving and that’s not a bad thing as he’s so young. But don’t start him at OT! Bring him on late for pace but don’t start him. With our season where it has been, we should have gone for gusto. Anyone who tuned this fixture in thinking they were going to see a “classic”: I feel badly for you. This game can be so much better. The reffing was better than it has been, but only because it has been so bad. Oh well.
