Mixed Emotions for me as Liverpool edge closer to title win


Raheem Sterling 'beautiful' first goal

Raheem Sterling ‘beautiful’ first goal

Watching my darling club Liverpool defeat Manchester City 3-2 today was an experience worth remembering. Not just because am a Liverpool fan, but because if Liverpool win the league, it would be the second trophy Liverpool will win since I became a liverpool fan in 2006.

The game started 7 minutes late as planned to honour the 96 who died in Hillsborough, 1989, in an FA Cup Semi-final againt Sheffield Wednesday. The Local Viewing pub I went to watch the game was full of real fans and a majority of ‘fake’ Manchester City fans.

The game started on a high, Liverpool chasing Man city, things got better when Luis Suarez found Raheem Sterling and the teenager made no mistake in putting his name in the goal-sheet. He collected a beautiful pass from Suarez, turned two defenders and Hart and fired into an empty net.

Things got worst for city, better for Liverpool as Yaya Toure picked up what looks like a groin injury after trying to put a long range shot into the net but went to orbits. His removal sensed trouble for Manuel Pellegrini and the trouble came faster than expected.

Liverpool won a corner on the near side and Coutinho went and swinged the ball in, Liverpool captain Gerarrd was left alone and his free header was meet by a brilliant Joe Hart. Sooner, Gerarrd was on the taking end in the resulting corner kick Martin Skrtel, jumped high, and his shining head was all the ball needed to find the net.

Liverpool remained silent for the rest of the game unless for the misses Daniel Sturridge accrued before the half time whistle blew.

Half time break shey?? The fake fans troubled me, shouting in believe that Man City would come from behind to win the game. Well, me used faith to hold on sha 🙂

The second half commenced, Milner had been doing some warm ups at the interval, 3 minutes on, he came in and in the 57th minute, he set up Silva beautifully for City’s first goal. At this time, Man City was in control, Sturridge was lost, Coutinho looked dodgy, and city were strong.

Sooner, Nasri and Silva combined on the right and Johnson gave Man City a second goal through a diversion of his legs. !!Jesus!! I was scared, angry, tensed and feeling sorry, by this time, My brother (A chelsea fan) started teasing me, chai!! I wished I could get in the game and score a goal.

Mr Sturridge came off, Allen came on, Allen brought some new vibes, but his lack of shooting skills made him looking Suarez at a position he could shoot. The Liverpool front trio were falling offside and every real fan was frustrated.

Suddenly, Liverpool won a throw in, Johnson threw the ball, Suarez chested to the part of Kompany but the Belguim man kick the air and Coutinho who run and took a turning shot!!! Goal!!!! Everywhere was banging hard. Liverpool managed to shake of the City aggression, but Henderson gave us the bad omen 😦 a bad tackle from him, made him see red (He won’t face city). The win made liverpool sit on top of the table, 7 above Man City and two above Chelsea after the won 0-1 at Swansea later today.

In all, Wahalai I feel the game, money and time no waste!!! YNWA……. My friends, Do you think liverpool will win the league? Can they defeat chelsea come April 27?

Share your thoughts please.

The Big Story: Who will win the Premier league?


Well done boy!

Well done boy!

With 5 weeks of the Barclays Premier League remaining, Liverpool sit pretty top with a nervy 2-1 win at Boleyn Ground (West Ham United) this took their total point tally to 74, and goals tally to 90 goals, 6 better than Manchester city.
Liverpool are yet to lose a Premier league game in 2014, Luis Suarez is one gaol away from a premier league record and if Liverpool win Manchester City at anfield next sunday, it would give Liverpool a 7-point gap on their opponents. Should Liverpool win, Its 10 wins in 10 games, their best in the Premier league era and Captain Steven Gerrard can start dreaming of the trophy that has eluded his Hall of Fame for 15 years.
Manchester City look deadly from their starting line up of players, but its about the goals you score and the more you win, if city are to win Liverpool on sunday and probably be in front of the title race(if they win their outstanding games), they have to stop liverpool from playing “freedom football” as West Ham did and pray for some great share of luck. West Ham kept Liverpool from making the short precise passes but too many mistakes cost them and awarded Liverpool 2 more penalties to make it 12 this season and Steven Gerrard is no newbie to spot-kicks, slotting home both two of the penalties gifted to him, his 10th penalty he scored all season. Luis Suarez knows how to make you handle the ball with hands has he has won 7 of Liverpool’s penalties from opponents handballing his dribbles, with 3 instance happening against West Ham but the referee spotted only one, Sturridge adds power to the and pace to the attack line with both strikers having 49 goals between them (better than the total goals of 11 teams in the league including Manchester United). Whoever wins the clash definitely has the league 95% theirs, unless there’s a slip somewhere.
Chelsea should just look up to finishing as high as possible and prevent more away losses as they’ve failed to win in their last 3 aways games in all competitions. Yet to face Liverpool, the odds are on Liverpool’s side and should liverpool win the tie also then the league is 99% theirs.
Let’s just sit and wait patiently for the drama to unfold. For me, I tip my darling LFC to win the league 😀
