Agger: Fewer Fixtures Could Benefit Liverpool

I love Danny Agger more than you.
This is unquestionably true and it should be the comment of the week but I know that even if it got 30 recs you’d never allow it.

Iago Aspas Suffers a Torn Thigh Muscle, Sidelined Until December

Oh, wow.

A Little Bit of Thanks

And me, I'm thankful that
Theres a place on the interweb that feels like home. A comfortable pitstop in the vast trolliness of the information superhighway that is populated by reasonable and interesting folk, and moderated by tireless champions, all talking about the only thing I want to talk about during my down time.
Though I never get to contribute as much as I would like, the wonderful work you do here has ensured that all my LFC needs are met – satisfying me until I finally get to make the long awaited pilgrimage myself.

Special shout out to maninblack's attempt to bump up his comment stats, which may or may not have worked. (This is not encouragement for everyone to go out and do the same.)
