Reading v Liverpool

FA Cup 3rd Round today.

I am a Liverpool fan so perhaps I shouldn't have taken this bet but looking at Liverpool's starting line up they have to be lumped on from the off in my opinion!

The over 2.5 goals at 1.84 was also very appealing but I have just opted for a straight Liverpool win.

Good luck if you're on and come on Liverpool let's restore some pride this season starting with a cup run (win) :-)

Reading open the scoring!! 1-0 and to be fair Liverpool have been poor!

As I am watching the game and it is nearly a full strength team I thought I'd put my opinions of the current squad down:

Cavalieri: Decent back up
Johnson: Good attacking full back way over priced though.
Aquillani: Who knows?? A LOT of money!!!
Agger: Good player
Gerrard: Homegrown Hero
Torres: Truly World Class
Voronin: Useless
Riera: Shows glimpses every now and then good back up
Aurelio: Not been the same since injury
Benayoun: Too lightweight made to look good by appalling performances around him.
Krygiakos: A make do signing
Kuyt: Works hard but not good enough paid striker prices too.
Babel: I think he has bags of potential play him up front Rafa!!
Mascherano: Over hyped but good player. Heart elsewhere.
Lucas: Lost for words here!
Insua: Widely tipped for greatness but I just don't see it.

1-1 Gerrard Equaliser!!! C'mon..

Carragher: All heart and very lucky not the real talent he is praised as being. Amazed he has had such a good career. Must be the only pro footballer who needs to take a run up to pass it! Too slow now too.
N'gog: PSG thought it was a joke when we offered £1.5m - enough said
Reina: Top draw keeper
Spearing: Local lad not seen enough of yet
Degen: anither injured signing!
Plessis: Youngster not seen enough of.
El Zhar: 23 now so not quite sure when he will be old enough!! Obviously crap!
Darby: Youngster not seen enough of!
Kelly: Youngster
Irwin: Youngster
Skrtel: Decent player
Dossena: Another international arrives at Anfield and is either injured or not good enough.
Eccleston: Youngster
Ayala: Youngster
Hansen: Youngster
Gulacsi: Youngster
Amoo: Youngster
Pacheco: Hotly tipped youngster
Bruna: Youngster

So I reckon we have a Premiership level team of: Reina, Johnson, Agger, Skrtel, Gerrard, Mascherano and Torres. Such a pity that the Premiership isn't a 5 a side competition!

Right that's it I'm firmly in the Rafa out camp now after supporting him for so long! He hasn't got a clue what his team or players should be doing. Wasting the abilty of the good players and surrounding them with over priced rubbish!

By the way can you tell it was 1-1?
Loss: £138.19
