Why can’t English teams defend?

I hate that I do!

The first thing that sprang to mind after watching the Liverpool v Arsenal game the other night was how appalling the defending was. Call that entertainment, I call it a bloody disgrace. Arsenal are not known for their defensive qualities but Liverpool should know better. They are supposed to be a side challenging for the Premier League, yet they have conceded 8 goals in 2 games. Contenders? More like chuffin benders! I’ve got more chance of playing for Doncaster at 62!

So how can a player who touched the ball 6 times score 4 goals? Chopper Harris would of brought him down before he even controlled the ball!
I’ll actually give the dumpy little Russian some credit, they were very good finishes for a midget.

I hate that I do!

I tucked into my Pukka pie trying not to be sick watching Jamie Rednecks constant brown nosing of Steven Gerrard, who had the hump all night and actually looked as if he was going to burst into tears at any moment. There he was slouching back into his chair like a teenager, didn’t his mam teach him any manners? Why oh why did Sky think it would be a good idea to get Liverpool’s team captain in the studio to analyze his teams match is beyond me. I hate that I do!
