post #50 : Five things we learned from the Liverpool v Sunderland game

No comments:
Salam Ramadhan peeps,

First of all, allow me to highlight that THIS IS MY #50 POST! What a landmark this blog has been! Kan?...kan?....kan??????

Anyhow, free flowing adrenaline will once again fill my weekends as the Barclays Premier League is already on the way! Yeah! 

The match on my watch tonight was Liverpool v Sunderland played on the Kop's backyard. For those of you who didn't see the match, well you didn't miss much. I was eager in seeing the new players both King Kenny & Steve Bruce has brought to the club respectively, and it was disappointing. 

On paper, both club gave debuts for some of their new players, with Jordan Henderson, Jose Enrique, Charlie Adam & Stewart Downing making their debuts for Liverpool as well as Wes Brown,Seb Larsson & Ji-Dong Woon making their debuts for Sunderland. 

The result was a competitive 1-1 draw with Liverpool giving their lead away earlier from a Luis Suarez header to a spectacular half-volley goal from Sebastian Larsson. 

All in all, we can summarize five main things from the match tonight;

1. Luiz Suarez takes penalty lessons from David Beckham
It was a simple penalty to take. It was early in the game. No such pressure, only Mignolet doing some fancy dancing to distract Suarez. But, WHAM!, hit it over the crossbar, straight to the jeering Kop behind the goal. And David Beckham was smiling in his living room tonight.

2. Andy Caroll has yet to justify his 35 million pound price tag.
Said it right. Even with Suarez, Adam & Downing to support, the only thing that he did today was sitting in Wes Brown's pocket. Guess the hatred still fills in Wes even after he departed Man United ea? Hehe. 

3. Phil Dowd loves his yellow cards more than his red cards
8 yellow cards. Should have given Kieran Richardson a straight red for obstructing a direct chance at goal for Suarez. Dissapointing referring today it seems.

4. Charlie Adam delivers great quality balls from set pieces.
SAF was quoted saying that Adam's delivery from set pieces are 10 million pounds each. And he did just that today. Great vision to pinpoint Andy Caroll at any time he has the ball. 

5. Seb Larsson knows how make a debut.
Not your natural goal scorer. But when he scores, he sure hell makes you talk about it.

Can't wait for tomorrows game : West Bromich Albion v Manchester United (10 p.m.). Terawih Lapan lagi la nampaknya esok.Haha.
