The Daily Diatribe: Bellamy injury not so serious, FoxSoccer changes schedule in US Liverpool fans' favor, & A look at our upcoming schedule

New, comments

* According to many reports, Bellamy's injury isn't as serious as first thought. In fact, if everything works out he'll be back in time for the first Champion's League semifinal match at Stamford Bridge. I was really worried that we'd have to play Kuyt and Crouch until their legs fall off.

* Fox Soccer has changed it's schedule for this Saturday's matches to feature the Liverpool at Manchester City match at 10 am eastern time. Not that it really matters to me because I was going to watch no matter what, but I hope this is a sign of things to come and all Liverpool fans should definitely try and watch this match so they'll change more future broadcasts to feature more Reds' games.

Not a lot of news today, so I guess I'll take a look our remaining schedule:
4/14 at Manchester City - should be a win, especially with a well-rested Gerrard, Carra, Masch, and Kuyt. Would be great to see Didi play.

4/16 FA Youth Cup Final - first leg - Manchester United - we're home and we need to try to score as much as possible to make the second leg easier, might be our only real chance at silverware this season

4/18 Middlesborough - A midweek fixture that being at home should be a squeaker win

4/21 Wigan - Like Middlesborough, won't be pretty but we should be able to grind out another win

4/25 at Chelsea - Hmmm... I think we'll surprise some people here and play really aggressive. If we can keep it to 1-2, we have a great chance at home. Bellamy might be back, Kewell should be available, and Essien is suspended.

4/26 FA Youth Cup - second leg - at Manchester United - I'm going to try my hardest to watch this match, call my seedy contacts, risk jail time, put my life on the line, whatever

4/28 at Portsmouth - They just beat Man U at home and we'll be exhausted by this point. I'd be happy with a boring draw.

5/1 Chelsea - The most important match of the year up to this date, without a doubt.

5/5 at Fulham - See Portsmouth, a draw will suffice, unless we're out of the Champion's League than I hope they kick Lawrie's ass.

5/13 Charlton Athletic - Charlton gets better each week and this game might mean more to them, than us. It really depends if we have anything else to play for at this point. If we do, we might be playing a 'weak' team.
