Smash & Trash – Impressive Saints and Liverpool’s waste of space

By on August 20, 2012 - 0 views

TRASH!  Joe Cole

‘What is the point in Joe Cole?’ is a question that many Liverpool fans will be asking themselves following a 3-0 thumping by West Brom. The former Chelsea skiller managed just 11 minutes at The Hawthorns on Saturday before pulling his hamstring. His last appearance in a Red shirt saw him hobble off after 23 minutes in a Euro tie against Gomel. Is this what £100,000-a-week gets you these days?

SMASH! Southampton

Even Southampton fans were probably expecting to get battered by Manchester City in their Premier league opener. However, the Saints were desperately unlucky to not get at least a point from the champions and demonstrated that they could give anyone a run for their money this season.

TRASH! Ivan Ramis

As debuts go, this was a bit of a stinker for Wigan Athletic’s Ivan Ramis who suffered a rude awakening to Premier League football on Sunday – helping to gift Chelsea two goals inside the opening 10 minutes. The summer signing from Real Mallorca was skinned twice by fellow debutant Eden Hazard to help provide goals for Branislav Ivanovic and Frank Lampard.

SMASH! Michael Laudrup

Brendan who? Swansea City scored fewer goals than both Blackburn and Bolton last season. New boss Michael Laudrup already seems to have addressed that problem with a 5-0 win over QPR. His new signing Michu also looked quite handy and bagged himself a brace.

TRASH! Robert Green

Poor old Robert Green. Haunted by that horrific mistake in the 2010 World Cup, the England stopper made his QPR bow on Saturday. He proceeded to concede five goals in a devastating home defeat to Swansea City. Poor Rob.

SMASH! Zoltan Gera

Zoltan Gera deserves a mention purely that glorious strike against Liverpool that gave Pepe Reina no chance. The Hungarian international is unlikely to catch a ball so sweetly again all season.

    with the type of game southampton played against man city believe i don’t think our club can withstand them (southampton),for that Rodgers need to bring in Clint Dempsey also i don’t know why Rodgers don’t want to sign Gatson Ramirez whom both can assist to change our games when it matters.

    The headlines should have said? Whats the point in Joe Cole, Stewart Downing, Jay Spearing and maybe Charlie Adam. and i would have like also to see? after a fantastic career Jamie Carragher, admits he is no longer able to keep up with the youngsters in the premeier league, and bows out after an illustrious career with the reds, lets be honest about it? I love the guy to bits, but im just stating the facts, that a lot of supporters are thinking. Coates should be a more regular option this season imo. Brenden Rodgers needs to sell, before this transfer window closes, and as we all know we need a goalscorer of note and somebody who can take on a defender, and is capable of putting in a decisive cross, in the opposing teams danger areas, Adam Johnson would fit the bill, more so than anyone we have been associated with, over this transfer window imo, Dempsey for the right price? would be a quick fix for this season, a proven player who as a great eye for goal, these possitions need filling before the tranfer deadline. And Raheem sterling, imo as earned his place at least on the bench, more perminently than most. If Brenden wants too become a success with the LFC faitful he needs these changers to occur imediately.
