    Hail to the King ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Hi Jason, I have been sort of hibernating. You know us fans we yell the loudest when things are going either very wrong or MAGNIFICENTLY. With my always being a cautious optimist, I have been quietly analysing what has been unfolding without saying much on the off-chance that it might be a false dawn or a series of flukes.

    I am not saying that I doubted the King but that I was not sure that we had really turned the corner. However after seing the ruthless demolition and carnage that we dealt to Birmingham (not to forget the 3-0 hiding we gave Mancini), I have to say that my caution has been thrown to the wind and I have no option but to pay this tribute. Its not the score-line that impresses me the most, its the manner of it all. Our team is currently beset by injuries to the entire backline, the main midfielder and the (record signing) chief striker, previous managers would have been whinging and moaning at our misfortune but not KK. He has had no qualms about sticking in not just one but two TEENAGERS into the defence, something totally unheard of in the Premier league. Rafa probably would have played Kuyt at rightback and Carragher at left back, just like we have seen SAF playing playing Fletcher and (once) Giggs as fullbacks. Roy probably would have played himself at rightback before daring to field the youngsters .... and rightly so coz if they happen to have a nightmarish display they could be psychologically affected for quite some time.

    The faith that Kenny has shown to the youngsters has amazed me, against Birmingham I just could not help smiling when I saw wee Jay hit an accurate 40 yard crossfield to pick out Lucas. Which Liverpool fan would have thought Jay capable of such a feat or the brilliant displays he has put up lately, Not me for sure. I liked the boy as a local lad but I never seriously thought of him as a good footballer till KK came to town. And Jay is not the only standout feature, we all remember how well Kelly was doing before his injury. Looking at the table I could not help noticing that we now have a better goal difference than Spurs yet when Kenny came in we were negative (-6). Come next weekend Spurs lose to Chelski and we thump Newcastle and we will be 5th for the FIRST time this season. If only we had 7-8 more games left then we definitely would have finished 4th.

    I have said it before and I will say it again .......... Hail to the King.
