So who else here has a feeling deep down inside that over the last few seasons and right up to this point, there would come a 'eureka moment'...where everything inexplicably falls into place and results start consistently going our way? Maybe the word inexplicably is wrong here because the last couple of seasons results have been inexplicable. What I mean is 'expectedly'
Because I do and I think that time is now.
Like a wounded beast who has had enough of the 'shite' as I like to call it (performances, results, refereeing, woodwork, low conversion rates etc etc), I think the result on Saturday is just what we needed to kick start this seasons campaign. And I'm glad it came in the first game of the season instead of a couple of wins and draws only acting to lull the players and manager into a false sense of security.
The same thing has happened to United just now losing to Everton - that is a dangerous result for every other team they have to play against, including us. Thats why I have a feeling with both of our backs against the wall the clash between Liverpool and United has the potential to be a real classic.
I just have this feeling anyway that from now - we will hit heights that we haven't seen in a few years. The conditions are perfect. The players will ALL get their confidence as per their previous clubs and performances, BR style of play will 'gel' with immediate effect, Carroll and Suarez start knocking them in for fun with Borini and Gerrard adding to the goal tally.
Our defense - will now become immense. Skrtl signed up and hungry. Agger quietly focussing for his return and Reina is looking at his best.
Mark my words. The conditions are favourable for an immediate turn of fortune.
