Good game fancy, tommy.

I don't agree with the two cards given to Adebayor. The first one was brutal and the second one was just as bad.

Oh well.....hell of a game.

adebayor deserved the second yellow...from the one angle it didnt look so bad, but at the end of the day, when you are "attemping to shield a ball" you cannot raise your hands in the air and sswing them even if its slight.

sanya should have been sent off for that challenge later int he game...he was lucky to get a yellow card..no intent to play the ball and impeded the player from a break. red.

Either way, i hate both teams so i could care less the outcome lol.

I really though arsenal was going to win even with 10 men..they were out playing liverpool on actual attempts,,more heart then liverpool.

grrrrr....

Another blotched opportunity. chelsea will make us pay tomorrow.

Arsenal played fantastic especially in the second half. I don't think Liverpool generated one fucking offensive chance in that entire half. Terrible. Hats off the the Arsenal midfield and defenders for playing as well as they did. The first half was fantastic. Very exciting.

And hell yes, Adebayor's sending off was weak. Especially the first card.

Good game from Kean-o.

I agree CG ... it was questionable but it looked more like something momentum could do. Tough call.

Anyhow, huge game for Chelsea tomorrow. Come'on Blues.

fantastic game. VP's touch and finish was superb. adebayors send off seemed to have saved arsenal, cuz they sure as hell played with alot more heart after that. Liverpool didnt deserve to win that game, and it showed in the result. Keanes goal was a beaut though, picture perfect. game did get quite chippy in the 2nd though. I was suprised at how long it took Lucas Leiva to get a yellow.

all in all, i can accept a drawvs arsenal

I can accept a draw against arsenal too. they are a solid squad. However, when the opponent is down a man for an entire half and they out play you for the rest of the game, and you can't even put together a good chance on goal - that's frustrating.
It's also frustrating when Gerrard misses two VERY good scoring chances like the ones he had on Sunday.

BTW. What's up with Ryabn Babel? dude is always talking about how he deserves to be a first team player, and then when he gets into a game, 4 times out of 5, he's awful. I used to have high hopes for Babel.. Now i'm just pissed off with him.

Shit. hopefully Torres will play soon.

Last two games were ties (Arsenal, Hull) game before that was a win (blackburn).

I would agree with you Bel, except that every other good team is doing the same thing.

Liverpool deserve to be on top.

A couple of great games by Liverpool. Better go for the Premiership since they will be out of the Champions league pretty soon.

Liverpool will NOT win it this year. United always does well in the second half of the season. IF they win the 2 games in hand on liverpool, they will be 1 point behind which in the premiership is fuck all.

Dont get carried away just yet pool fans!

Lpool consistently chokes so either they change that this year or else they are the same team.

Although getting Torres back will be helpful...Also i heard rumours of them going for my Leicester boy Heskey....Say waht you want about him, Heskey is a a great forward for knocking the ball down and passing it off to a running striker like owen (even though he isnt there anymore). He is strong and can hold his own. Not the most skillful forward around but you need brute force soemtimes!

i wouldnt say they blow it. The premiership is by far the hardest league in the world. Whoever wins is not a champion but lucky and thats that.

Its true that currently the premiership is the strongets but not by far. And that only changed three years ago, when Barcelona and Sevilla won the Champions/Uefa. That was the year La Ligas' midpack teams lost a lot of quality and thats what makes a league strong. IMO Its difficult to say wich one is harder. La Ligas soccer is more tactical and defensive, premiership is more offensive and vertical (more entertaining too).
I would say its pretty close, Premiership having the edge a little. La Ligas has one team dominating, in England theres 1 doing pretty well, and another two contending.
