Sad, very sad to see the way former entertainers team doing recently. I have to admit that Big Sam must take the England job in a matter of time sooner as Mike Ashley have said that he will not stand in Allardyce’s way if he goes for the England job.
The visitors only need less than a minute into second half and got the corner almost immediately from kick off: Gerrard swings a terrible corner in, but Hyypia can manage to flicks on the ball with his heel. There are four Newcastle defenders milling about.
The worst thing was none of them are willing to do any reaction and allow the ball to pass and ping off Kuyt’s knee. He wasn’t even looking the right way – and into the net from two yards. Absolutely no resistance whatsoever from Newcastle defenders, and the nightmare is haunting back. This one is really should have been prevented.
Not so Big today Allardyce making his first change in 52 minutes to replaced Emre with Joey Barton. The change is not helping much as the worst to happened today was again in our back four. Enrique loses the flight of the ball on the left allowing Kuyt to get clear.
The striker drives towards and waits before picking out Kewell. The Australian winger shoots first time but Beye can only throws his body in the way to block and let Rozehnal do clears. The visitor make changes with Ryan Babel replaces Harry Kewell.
Soon after that Sam Allardyce making another change for Newcastle to bring in James Milner to replaced the non-effective manner of displays Charles N’Zogbia. The home fans chanting out “Big Sam for England” and as he has said earlier as how patriotic he is, I think he should take the England job as soon as possible.
From Nicky Butt’s kick over Sissoko which could easily have been a second yellow, Babel powers in a free-kick from the right forward to Gerrard, who pulls the ball back immediately into Babel to sidefoot past Given’s bottom left corner. Another worst piece of defending this season from Newcastle.
Where’s that magic wand Big to soon become Little Sam Allardyce? The Geordies keep singing “Big Sam for England” even louder and louder. There are so little efforst from the lads today, very sad to say it but the likes of Torres is always allowed to scoots free and I would not be surprise if he finally scores for the Kop.
Liverpool are playing brilliantly here; they could be five, six, seven up into the second-half and we will see Little Sam packing his bag immediately in the morning, as we won’t wait for five consecutive losts before he admitted that he has a bad spell at Newcastle.
By the way, am I write it wrong that we are actually playing at home?
