I thought it was the week after Ashley Cole refused to give his name for a booking?

Andy Gray calls it, Jamie Redknapp, not so much.

Absolutely. That's why the Rafa 'rant' was so annoying how it was portrayed, as he had a point. And also why it was so annoying to hear Liverpool fans come out with the old clichés, 'the best team always wins the league', 'mistakes even themselves out over the course of a season', etc. We were so much better in 08/09.

The draws at Stoke and Riise's own goal foiled a brilliant team. I don't think people give that team enough credit. Should have had the league and CL double without doubt. The rant narrative portrayed in the media is the story they like to portray, truth is, certain events on the pitch and in the transfer market is where things slipped away.

I actually blame Robbie Keane and his shitty attitude. He was at the club for 6 months and moaned to the media all the time. The stuff about the 'manager not fancying him' really wound me up. Every time he was subbed off he wore a seemingly rehearsed 'disgusted' look on his face. Fuck sake, he should have been kissing Rafa's feet for taking him from a very average Spurs. It's like he expected to start without proving himself in that quality starting 11. It's entitlement, his performances for us were poor too, it's not like he did anything to justify a starting spot. We lost 2 games all season, how did the 'rant' derail us?

I agree with selling him back, but fuck... Ngog was our backup attacking option. If Rafa was backed just a little more we'd have won. Definitely didn't help that expensive signing like Keane couldn't handle it. Guess it was a bad signing in retrospect because he didn't do anything significant anywhere else for the rest of his career - his best days were behind him.

TBH I'd completely forgotten that Keane was a part of that season.

To be fair on N'Gog, he was better than Macheda FFS.

Jamie Redknapp then and now, still a fucking diabolical pundit. Such a wet lettuce.

I could have sworn him and alonso started against united one game with stevie g out.

But you're right he was beside Lucas for the 4-1 game. How good was his solitary goal against Reading....he went absolutely berserk. (do yourself a favour and mute the video)


I think he really enjoyed playing for Liverpool and would have stayed longer, rumours were his wife hated England right? in which case, I don't blame him for moving on.

I was at that game.

Near the front of the Anfield Road End, behind the goal, and directly behind where Masch was when he hit it. Perfect view.

I recall reading that his family had a lot of hassle with immigration officials at the airports apparently due to some ignorance on their part at the start & after that, they were flagged by airport security/immigration as ones to look out for. His wife couldn't get her family in due to wrong papers etc & not having learnt English at all didn't help her. His family spent more time out of England than in England for the duration of his stay with us apparently.

Remember desperately wanting him to not be as shit as my eyes were telling me he was when Klopp first arrived. I seem to recall he missed a sitter v Spurs in that first game and it always seemed like ‘if’ that had gone in he might have got a few. Other than fighting to get to take a pen I don’t recall him doing anything else of note at all.

Him and Benteke though. Imagine Klopps vision and how badly they fit into it.

I remember his debut. I was on holiday watching in a bar and he played up top with Sturridge and we beat Spurs 3-0 at WHL. I was convinced it was the start of something beautiful.



Next week we lost 1-0 at home to Villa.

Dom Solanke scored twice in a game today. Fortunately we are no so lacking up front we are yearning for him

I saw Mikel San Jose playing DM for Birmingham yesterday vs Coventry. He was a CB with us & he didn’t look suited to playing all over the park in midfield tbh.
