It amazes me at times how one result can cause this place to plunge into a war zone, with running battles in post match threads. The normal level headed people trying in vain to instill some pragmatism into the hoard of beauts who only ever log on in the wake of a reverse defeat, to peddle their bullshit which they attained from the sky sports school of fucking whopperism. The lunatics are slowly but surely taking over this asylum I fear.
We're 8 games in, and already theres talk of surrender. It's baffling. I said earlier in the post game thread that the kneejerking has gone to new levels. Last March we won 4-1 at Old Trafford, the gap was cut to 7 points with less than 10 games to go. We were in the thick of a title fight. There were threads springing up by the hour, telling us all to believe, and that anything was possible. Yet here we are, a mere 6 points behind, with 30 games left, and its time to throw in the towel according to some people. Maybe its me, but I just find that whole notion bordering on total lunacy.
Its early October for fuck sake, the roller coaster that is the 09/10 season has barely pulled away from the platform, and already its doom and gloom. We play Utd in 3 weeks, they then visit Chelsea 2 weeks later. Its not beyond the realms of possibility for Liverpool to actually be top of the table going into November, which is a mere 4 weeks away. And we still have Aquilani's debut to look forward to, along with Aggers return. Roll on October, Im with you on this one Sarge, theres much to look forward to, and much to look forward to in the months after October. I'm strapping on my belt and I intend to enjoy the ride all the way to the 9th of May
