badgelogo.JPGThe extent to which football is sometimes deemed a heartbreaker was clearly demonstrated at Anfield yesterday! What a disaster! If I’m not mistaken, it was 11 Liverpool corners to Manchester’s 2 (not to mention all the other statistics in their favor) at the 90th minute when a scramble in the Liverpool box gave John O’shea a last minute winner! I have never seen anything like it; just take a look how high Sir Alex Ferguson jumped when Manchester got the goal.    

However, blaming fate is never a reason for a loss like yesterday’s. If a world class striker was on Liverpool’s side, at least one of the tens of chances would have been converted! The prolific defensive work by the Reds might justify Benitez’s decision to play Gerrard on the right (a subject of continuous controversy) and two defensive minded midfielders in the middle, but the strike force (except for a good Bellamy performance) failed again, and a finisher of the calibre of Henry or Shevshenko is a basic requirement now for a good scoring record! Let’s hope the loss will not affect Tuesday’s clash with Barca.
