Mauling of Villa and International Break..again!

Watching Liverpool thrash Villa 5-0 was really something. The way we played our opponents in that game reminded me of a sight when a caged bird is suddenly unshackled and is able to fly freely. I cannot really recall when was the last time Liverpool played this way, in full control of its destiny.

There is so much confidence in the team now one must feel that the international break came at the wrong time. After all, it would a pity if we were to lose a momentum in which we scored 8 goals against two of the best sides in Europe and 5 against a team eyeing for a CL spot. But for our biggest rival for the Title, the break could not have come at a better time. The scums would be glad to hope that our momentum could break and for them to have enough time to lick their wounds and take control of things when the league resumes next week.

Another worry would be for the players on international duty themselves. Let us hope that all of them arrive back to LFC unscatched. Losing important players like Gerrard and Torres through injury would a big blow to us, more so when the depth in the squad is not that great. 

Next week, we get to play Fulham and a win will take us 2 points clear of manure. And the scums will play Villa, a game they cannot afford to lose. But it does look good for us when they will be without three important players in vidic, scholes and the shrek, who were all red carded when manure's dam was bursting (all these red cards, is it due to the infamous Rafa's rantings of Fergie and the Refs not too long ago?). Even with one game in hand, they will be really worried because of games against City and Arsenal in the cards. As mentioned by most football pundits, the title is theirs to lose. Let's hope that they do lose it in the end, and if that were to happen, it will be the biggest bonus for Liverpool fans this decade.
