I fully intended to post this earlier but I just couldn’t find the time to do it. Work being a major factor in this. I hope that the readers can bear with me on this. Anyhow, here is my run down for this week.
It has been a while since I was last posted. So sorry for that. I have been busy over the Chinese New Year period. Liverpool has had some ups and downs during this period. The highlight of this period is their 1-0 victory against Chelsea. A marvelous achievement no doubt. I have to admit that it was not a result that I had expected. Yet, it was a result that I am greatly proud at.
Welcome to this special edition for Chinese New Year 2011. Liverpool got a massive boost last night when they won 2-0 against Stoke, making it their 3rd victory and 3rd clean sheet in a row. This is a marvelous achievement ahead of this weekend’s clash with Chelsea. Suarez made his debut just after an hour of the game and promptly scored Liverpool’s second goal. Every thing else aside, this is a result which sees Liverpool currently sitting on 7th.
Chinese around the world will usher in the year of the rabbit on 3rd Feb 2011. It is one of the most important and joyous occasion in the whole year for the Chinese. Chinese believes that wearing red on this day signifies wealth and abundance for the year to come and black is the exact opposite. So spread around the joy tomorrow and wear red to help celebrate this special occasion with all the Chinese around you.
I am personally looking forward to an exciting year to come. May tomorrow be the start of a wonderful year with my beloved Stephy and let us build on our relationship and go from strength to strength.
Gong Xi Fa Cai and Happy Chinese New Year to all out there.
Two biggest transfers lit up the last day of the winter transfer window. They both concern Liverpool. Torres out to Chelsea for 45-50 million while Andy Carroll moves to Liverpool in a deal worth 35 million. Are they good or bad?
Post to be updated once I’ve digested the implications a little.
Update: After having some time to think it over, I believe that Liverpool was right to sell Torres. It is simply pointless to keep a player who no longer has the heart to play. However, buying Carroll for a reported 35mil is a little too much I think. No doubt that he has the quality, but I would have preferred that the 40mil + Anelka deal had gone through. This is because it would leave Liverpool with significantly more money to invest in other positions, namely, left back.
Still, I think that Liverpool did well in this transfer window to bring in two strikers of repute.
Hopefully we will continue to do well against Stoke. A hattrick of wins and cleansheet will be awesome.
