I'm still all smiles today from yesterday's win over United, as if I headed that goal in myself *thanks*
That's the thing about football. One man's goal is a whole army's pride! I totally made that one up but you know what I mean.
3 games. 3 goals. 3 clean sheets. 3 wins. It's a dream start, and dare I say luck has nothing to do with it *yes I'm talking to you sour Devils*.
Brendan Rodgers is making stellar progress with the team, especially the back (just got news that Sakho, Ilori are on board with Moses to follow).
LFC's defense is looking more and more impenetrable but let's be honest, our attack still needs work. Getting goals early in the first half for the past 3 matches are fantastic, but after the break they're not as consistent and lose their flair.
Except for the man standing in between the post. Now he's THE reason Liverpool have yet to concede.
I didn't quite understand why BR spent a cool 9 mill on Mignolet and loaned Reina to Napoli. I mean, I knew he's good, but isn't Reina just as? Little did I know.
Mignolet has proved from the get go; against Stoke just how valuable he is. That penalty save on the 88th minute. I almost died.
Even on PL's Fantasy Football, he's the highest scoring player for now. If only I'd captained him instead of Hazard!
But let's not downplay the rest of the team. Sturridge is having a moment with the goal. Enrique + Johnson both aggressive at the sides. Coutinho has yet to find the net, but major talent there just waiting to burst out. Lastly, the always reliable Captain G, great passes, interceptions, and above all the experienced leader the team can count on.
It's still early days, but the current mood stands at: let's embrace being on top!!!!
...and hope it carries through the remaining 35 games where I'll be sitting, watching, praying with nerves, anxiety and all that.
During the 2 week hiatus in the PL, I'm gonna play catch up with history.
Planing to watch a rerun of the 1974 FA Cup final match on DVD courtesy of a colleague who grew up in the southern regions of London. It was the first match he ever watched, and has been a fan of the Merseyside ever since. Includes interview clips of Shankly too (who turns 100 today).
There's nothing quite like sports to keep the conversation going! #ynwa
