This is the team that has: Patrice Evra, Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa, Yann M'Vila, Samir Nasri, etc. It's a stunningly high ratio of petulant children to mature footballers.
All Villas Boas said in the first place was that Brad has had a great career up until now and deserves the spot he's been handed. Lloris would be better served by publicly paying respect to someone who has been goalkeeping longer than he's been alive, in my opinion. However, I expect soon enough we'll see Friedel get pushed out into the periphery with Uefa cup games, and then eventually retire at the end of the season.
In regards to my club, the opening fixtures was always going to be a rough ride for Mr Rodgers, but it's been made doubly worse by a wonder strike, some questionable refereeing, and our stalwart defender gifting a goal to Carlos Tevez. Arsenal straight up out-played us. We shouldn't have been giving the ball away so much. Gerrard has become woeful.
At least, even when we're playing like ass, we can count on this little guy:
Been excited ever since I heard Liverpool was scouting him in the 2010-2011 season. He and Raheem Sterling are real bright spots in an otherwise extremely dull and blunt team. Borini and Sahin will come good once they gel, though. Suarez has been really poor.
