I didn't watch it but it sounds like I missed a real cracker of a game. However, if reports I'm reading are true, namely that Owen got the winner in the 96th minute after only four minutes of injury time had been flagged on the board then City do have a right to feel somewhat narked. However, as I cannot fucking stand Manchester City, their cocky supporters, "madferit" celebrity fans or money jaded players I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. Personally I think Craig Bellamy is generally overrated, lazy and unproductive (hence why he lasted one season with us) but it seems he was well up for this match.
For me the greatest Premier League match ever still remains Liverpool's 4-3 win over Newcastle towards the end of the 1995/96 season. The look on Keegan's face when Stan Collymore struck home the winning goal was a priceless moment, even if we were inadvertantly doing bloody Man Utd a good turn. Another classic match I'll never forget is Liverpool's 3-3 draw against Man Utd in the 1993/94 season where we came back from 3-0 down. Remember that game cloud? Incase you need your mermory jogging Neil Ruddock headed home our late equaliser and knocked himself almost unconscious in the process. Classic stuff!
I was pleased with our 3-2 win over West Ham yesterday. Great game and to give West Ham their due they really did give their all in order to peg us back twice. However, Benitez's questionable decision to bring off Dirk Kuyt who was playing well and bring on Ryan Babel (who laid on the winner for Torres on a plate) proved inspired. At the end of the day our superior quality eventually proved too much for West Ham and we got the winner. Plus we didn't need bottomless injury time to do it either.
After a shaky start to our season we're managing to both win games emphatically and also squeeze out a result when other teams run us close and give us their best. I'm pleased with how things are going at present, but if anything happened to one of the indispensible trio of Gerrard, Torres or Kuyt we'd have a problem. So fingers crossed...
