Liverpool 2, Middlesbrough 2 (14-13 pens): Liverpool Win in Marathon Penalty Shooutout

Maybe Johnson? And what of Sterling?
I get the feeling that Rodgers is trolling the very concept of rotation itself, waving his wooden leg at it as he pilots the LFC-Pequod further and further out into the open seas of 2014-15. What metaphorical leg has rotation bitten off of you, Rodgers? Do you not realize that rotation—immense, insentient, to say nothing of being a complete abstraction—takes no part in this contest, cares not whether it wins or loses, and remains oblivious to your very existence?

Everything's the Worst: King of Kings Edition

If Brendan Rodgers sat down at a plush Chinese restaurant on Sunday night, opened his fortune cookie after a satisfying meal and desert, it would read: "You will have quite a few chances to sort your team out for the top four irrespective of injuries and some worrying performances."
The fortune cookie also says: "Your lucky numbers are NOT 8 and 21. Never 8 and 21. Fuck’s sake, mate."

Mamadou Sakho Apologizes for Early Anfield Exit

For me it’s out of character and mildly disappointing, and absolutely nothing more. Doesn’t need to be an indicator of a team in revolt or discord in the changing room or whatever. Mostly a 24 year old who, despite generally being awesome and appearing mature beyond his years in most areas, might have been pissed about being left out of the starting eleven/squad and overreacted.

Then he apologized, because he remembered the added expectation his status holds, and everyone went back to worrying about how the hell Liverpool are going to score goals without Daniel Sturridge.
