Slippery fish avoided
Well we survived the banana skin, or should that read fish skin? Do fish have skin? Oh well, it doesn't matter. I followed it on the BBC London
commentary and although I kept being ruddy interupted by work people - I ask you? Do they not know this is the 2nd Round of the Carling Cup? - it did sound that we were under the cosh for large parts of the game.
I think the corner count was something like 10-2 to them and as the official site
put it, "Dean Kiely, the crossbar, the North Sea wind and some poor finishing, as well as two excellent finishes from the two Merseysiders were the only reason the Premiership side beat a League Two side who just 10 days previously had been hammered by Macclesfield Town."
So, we are still playing shite but are sitting 10th in the table and through to the 3rd Round of the Carling Cup. Could be worse, could be trying to get myself out of the Sainsbury's car park with 4,000 others after watching that pile of pony called Chrystal Palarse.
