Liverpool 0 West Ham Utd 0 (01/12/08)

Post by simon hammer » Sun Nov 23, 2008 6:47 pm

Hmmm...going to be a tough game this one. Hopefully Zola can put out the same team that started todays match and we might pick up a point providing our back four are on top of their game again. I don't think we'll get too many chances to score and given that our record is pretty poor at Anfield I think a 1-1 draw would be an excellent result.

Same again please, barman. Two banks of four, another immense performance from Upson and Ginge and we could be in with a chance of a point. If Fulham can hold them to 0-0 ....

Last win at Anfield was in September 1963 with Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters scoring in a 2-1 win.

Anyone got Woy Hodgson's phone number?...

I'd definitely take a 0-0 from this.

After today, I feel the confidence is coming back slowly, so let's hope that continues at Anfield. For me, the performance is as important as the result. If we can get a point then great, but we need to put in a strong performance even if we come away with nothing. Again, 4-5-1 for me and try to hit them on the counter.

The late David Bickles played in that team my ex-PE teacher and i've got to say I couldn't stand him and I didn't even know that he had played for West Ham all those years ago until long after i'd left school. :oops:

As othershave said, a draw would be a great result.

Although I would love to see us get all the points up there once in my lifetime, its only been 41 years :lol:

I would play for a 0 - 0.

----------------Green-----------------
Neill-----Collins-------Upson---Ilunga
---Behrami----Mullins---Parker------
Faubert-------------------------Bellamy
------------------Cole-------------------

Mullins Behrami and Parker to battle whilst Bellamy and Faubert have to be quick on the counter.

Cole would also have to be the key man.
