Liverpool Message Board
just heard inter have crisis in defence with 3 main defenders out for the 2nd leg. when we win and go through to the next round all the LFC knockers and doubters will have this as their reasoning for our progress not the fact that LFC rule europe oh campioni the one and only!!!!
Dont think it really matters if have lost 3 or 4 men the way we started against them on tue says it all.
I know we didn't score until late on but they could just not handel torres ie:the red card. And when Crouch came on, well!
Torres and Crouch to start, and kuyt on the right!
Funny you should bring this up because Paul Merson raised this very fact on sky a couple of weeks ago that when Arsenal and United win it is with free flowing football yet whenever Liverpool win it is because the opposition played poorly. Even he thought it was a rediculous situation but then thats not going to change on SKY when there chief pundit is a bluenose is it!
Let's treat the return leg with the respect it deserves.
Inter are no mugs and we will still have to play well to get through.
That said, the missing defenders will certainly enhance the cause and prevent Inter from sailing too close to the wind.
I really do believe that Crouch frightens them.....I hope he starts at the SSiro.
