Well it was an interesting two games really. Torres was hurt again and Gerrard clearly not fit but we went to my least favorite ground, The Riverside in the hope of 3 points after a fantastic win against Madrid. The game went to form. Liverpool dominated early with Boro offering very little in attack. Liverpool couldn't take their chances and Boro started to get in to the match. Once they went ahead Liverpool looked flat and were outplayed in the second half. We slumped to our second league defeat of the season and we deserved to get beat.
The Sunderland game was a bit more of the same but the players turned up the heat in the second half with Riera improving greatly during the half-time break. Yossi continued his recent fine form and I have to admit I was disapointed not to seee him in the lineup against Boro over the weekend. I thought Masch had a very good game at right back and if he could just improve his shooting that might be a good spot for him.
We needed some positve form going into what will be a very difficult encounter with Madrid next week. It was nice to David Ngog get his first goal and the lad played pretty well over the course of his appearance. Not surprisngly the media didnt' say much about Keane moving on since Ngog scored in the game.
Rick Parry is finally going to leave the club after 12 years in charge. I truly beleive that Rick always tried to the right thing but it just didn't always work out for him. I believe he was a failure in many ways (most of all the commerical aspect of the club) but I will say thanks to him for bringing Rafa in. It was the best move he made during his tenor. His worst..lettting the Yanks buy the family silverware.
I wish him well
