There's not much to say about losing 6-3 to Arsenal in the Carling Cup. Being unable to watch the match from Milwaukee, I was forced to settle for the papers' accounts, which, not surprisingly, were unkind to Liverpool. Liverpool Offside is taking a couple days for a short, personal vacation to Chicago to see a hockey game, of all things. Now is a good time for meditation and reflection. Think about Istanbul and not Baptista. Focus on The Gerrard Final and not Arsene Wenger. Let's collect ourselves and move on. There's something called "Barcelona" in about five weeks, so it's time to prepare for the next challenge. Perhaps some sort of sci-fi brain cleansing is in order to reach the right frame of mind.
