2 sending off’s and 4 goals conceded, that was the plot at White Hart Lane. Liverpool stumbled to their 2nd defeat of the season to a superb Spurs at the London team’s home. The match was all Spurs for me, Liverpool were lost and couldn’t find their footing and it was a desperate performance which Spurs deserved.
Skrtel started in the right back position, it was probably due to the injuries for Glen Johnson and Martin Kelly that left a void in the left back position which Skrtel had to fill. The obvious choice would be Carra but with Gareth Bale attacking the on that flank, it would have been a difficult task for the deputy captain to cover. Skrtel was eventually sent off during the match together with new signing Charlie Adam’s who was sent off in the 1st half after a second yellow card after a bad tackle on Scott Parker.
Credit to Spurs for the professional performance but Kenny Dalglish has an uphill task to get the team to work harder on the training ground to get the fitness and tactics of the players up to keep going.
Its going to be a difficult season and such performances gives a sneak peek of the mammoth task in hand to get into European spots this season.

Here’s something interesting. After Tony Fernandes toke over QPR, i noticed that the QPR kit did not have a sponsor on it. The obvious was that AirAsia would be appeared on the QPR shirts but i have a niggling feeling that MAS (Malaysian Airlines) might be the dark horse to brace the London club, this was of course after the recent announcement that AirAsia owners were in a stock swap with AirAsia taking 20% stocks in MAS with MAS getting 10% stocks in the national carrier.
And looks like i was right, well .. Partly at least!
In a announcement today MAS will appear on the QPR home kit and AirAsia will appear on the away and 3rd kit.
Having 2 different sponsors is a first for any Premier League team and im not surprised with this move as Tony Fernendes has been on a roll with his actions.
Malaysia Airlines’ Executive Director, Mohammed Rashdan Yusof, said: “Malaysia Airlines, or more commonly known by our acronym MAS, is elated to be associated with QPR’s ascendancy to the Premier League.
Our sponsorship of the home jersey of QPR, together with Air Asia’s sponsorship of the away jersey, is a first for the Premier League. It also celebrates MAS’s recent collaboration framework with Air Asia.
The Malaysian interest in British Football increases further with this sponsorship and something tells me this is not the end.
Its been about a month since Kenny Dalglish had taken over the reigns as the Caretaker Manager of Liverpool FC after the dismissal of the Roy Hodgson era. Personally, i was hoping for a bit more from the former Fulham manager who came into the hot seat after being named Manager of year for the 2009/2010 season. Continue reading »

I have been a Liverpool supporter since 1989, i was barely 10 years old when we got some English Football coverage on the tele and for some reason, me and my mates at that time felt a connection with the team, we watched the likes of Grobbelaar,Alan Hansen ,Steve Staunton, John Barnes, Jan Mølby and Ian Rush to name a few mesmerizing the field with wearing their Candy kit. The team went on to win the Division 1 tittle, the top league in England at that time. Continue reading »
