Liverpool Message Board
To throw in an "interesting stat" I noticed earlier, our run of four clean sheets in a row is the joint third best run of clean sheets under Rafa. Our best is a staggering 11 in a row back in 05/06, which funnily enough was when Paco was at the club.
Exactly mate, we have tightened right up. I hope we can be equally as miserly at the emirates on wednesday night. If we can get a result there, it will definitely open up the 4th, sorry 3rd place race!!

1. he is now one of the slowest defenders in the prem.
2. has been skinned and turned by more players than I care to think of, more than any other defender I've seen. (this year is no better)
3. Fans say, "ah yeah, he's lost a bit ( a BIT ?) of pace, but he's got a good football brain.... he HASN'T. he really is now worse than average for a prem defender.
Anyone notice one of the first touches of yesterdays derby ? Smack back into the little rat pienaar. As if to say "I'm here, now lets not be having any good footie played agaist me..."
He hasn't got anything else to his game.
yes, he'll die for the cause, but thats not enough. apart from throwing his body in the way, I don't see what benefit he is to Liverpool. He's a better captain than gerrard (more vocal) but thats about it.
Just why do you think he's not playing for England ?
Don't say it's because the England squad was too big in that department, or he wasn't getting picked, etc, etc.
He wasn't getting picked because he was crap. end of.
so thats why. easy peasy.
