Liverpool 0 West Bromwich Albion 1.
Yet another defeat at Anfield for the mighty Liverpool.
They now sit in the Premier League in a group of teams separated by 3 points that include Norwich, Swansea and West Bromich Albion.
With only a couple of games left to go in the season, I see that as a disgrace for a club the size of Liverpool considering how much they have spent in the last year and a half.
However, I am not a Liverpool supporter.
I have enjoyed watching what I consider to have been great football under Rafa Benitez.
I have enjoyed watching the likes of Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher over the years and would hate to see them retire without winning the Premier League.
And I have enjoyed numerous epic European nights over the last decade.
But I am not a Liverpool supporter.
And I say supporter, as opposed to fan.
For it is they who support the club.
They who pay the entrance fee.
They who are the ones who experience the emotions of both the clubs successes - and failures.
Not me, nor other neutrals.
Who cares what they think about their club - It’s their club.
So as most Liverpool supporters have been staunch in the defence of Kenny Dalglish - most neutrals think it is blind nostalgia towards a hero of yesteryear who is so far out of the game he should not be allowed near a club the size of theirs.
Liverpool supporters believe that because Andy Carroll scored 2 important goals recently - he starting to prove his worth.
Most neutrals think Andy was a colossal waste of money and at €40m, consider him to be one of the greatest flops in the history of the Premier League.
Liverpool supporters believe Charlie Adam is an acceptable signing because he cost only €8m.
Most neutrals think he is nowhere near good enough to even grace the bench of a club that size.
Liverpool supporters believe Luis Suarez is in the World Class bracket.
Most neutrals look at the record of Luis this season - 8 goals in 28 games - and think why?
Van Persie has 27 in 35.
Rooney has 26 in 31.
Even Yakubu has twice as many as Luis and played a game less.
But again, us neutrals are not Liverpool supporters.
The way Kenny brought shame onto the club with his handling of the racism row was again something that we didn’t agree with.
We also didn’t like the handling of Roy Hodgson.
Sacked after only a few months, Roy now sits 1 point behind Liverpool despite not spending €130million.
Most neutrals laughed when Liverpool won the Carling Cup.
We think it’s a trophy that lost all its prestige when big teams, and Liverpool were one of them, started using the cup to blood youngsters and allow recently injured players get back to full fitness.
As Real Madrid defeated Barcelona on Saturday night to almost guarantee them La Liga - I couldn’t help but wonder what has happened in the 3 years since Liverpool destroyed Real Madrid 5-0.
I miss that team.
That for me, was where Liverpool belonged.
Not winning Carling Cups with Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing in their team.
Hammering the greatest club in Europe with World Class players like Torres, Gerard and Alonso.
But alas, as I said, I am not a Liverpool supporter.
It’s them and only them who can make their judgement on their club and where it should be.
If they support Kenny and Charlie, Andy and Luis, plus the Carling Cup and feel all that is good enough for their club - they will get what they deserve.
I just feel they should be aiming a little higher...
