Premier League: Liverpool 1 Everton 1

Another day..another Anfield *sigh

Here's my breakdown of the 209th Merseyside Derby held at Anfield, which surprisingly ended without any red card:

Torres missed a golden opportunity to put us ahead of Blueshite in the first half. Riera saw his swerving shot fly wide off the goal post.

Always rising to the occassion, Captain Fantastic scored on the 68th minute with his trademark emphatic 20-yard screamer.

Fat Spanish Waiter (Kai's nick for Rafa) got it wrong again with the substitution when he took out Torres and fielded the jinx with new perm (and his first act on the pitch: to give away a freekick!)

Kangaroohill was unmarked by Skittles and headed in the ball from a Mikel Arteta cross on the 87th minute. Major bummer! All those shoutings and loud cheers that woke the neighbours up at 5am were for ...a mood-killing draw. Even my boss at work is pissed!

As expected there were several controversial talking points in the match, such as Howard Webb failing to award penalties even though some really bad challenges were made under his nose. Just when I was about to accuse Rafa of taking the art of benchwarming million-dollar signings a lil too far, he finally decided to field a worthy squad with attacking options (though I'm not sure Kuyt knows what attacking means yesterday, and winning balls over does not count).

I don't know about you guys, but it seems our title hopes are slowly fading away into the hands of the Manure, who is now top of the table with one game in hand (and possibly more sneaky 1-nil wins to come). We cannot afford to choke like this when we're so close to Premiership glory, and I really hope the Reds start playing like they want this cup badly...and I'm starting to sound like a broken record :\
