The Trigger: Cheer up Roy

Evening ladies and gents, i’m Trigger and i’ll be here to round up the days LFC related news and interesting bits from the football World. Ps. Please don’t take me completely seriously.

Keep calm and Carra on

Or not in Roy’s case. He’s still drowing his sorrows that he will be without Carragher’s long hoofed balls for a whole four weeks following his dislocated shoulder at the Lane.

That and being sad at the FA Cup third round draw with United which now means he’ll have to “put his make-up on again” because no doubt it will be on telly. Gotta love his sense of humour haven’t ya, you can just imagine him cracking jokes to the grandkids by the fire on a cold winter’s evening.

Talking Tactics

The ever-impressive Zonal Marking analysed the Spurs defeat and concluded what we’ve all known for quite some time now – our full backs are crap and we play too deep. Except they put it much more eloquently.

Not good enough

Roy's RollsSpeaking of which, Konchesky has admitted his fault for Lennon’s goal. “I’ve got to up my game. Where I’ve played before has not been as high a standard as Liverpool,” said the West Ham and Charlton reject.

Someone in the forums recently asked the question ‘Is Konchesky the worst Liverpool player ever?’ Don’t be daft, Poulsen’s still ‘ere lad. Two great buys them Roy. Especially when you’ve loaned out players in the exact same positions who are literally a million times better. When I say literally, I actually mean actually.

El Clásico… Sticks and stones…

It was hardly a boring weekend in the Premier League but tonight’s treat is that of Barca and Real going head-to-head at the Nou Camp. Ahead of the match Barca’s ‘Boixos Nois’ bricked and stoned the Real bus, smashing the window that former red Alvaro Arbeloa was occupying. Unconfirmed reports suggest ‘Bob’ was able to get out the way by jumping over the seats and onto the backs of his teammates, a well practiced move during his time at Anfield.

El Clásico… “Orgasmic”

According to midfielder Xavi, when asked what the match is comparable to he laughed…

An orgasm when you win. It’s like gambling your money in the casino. If you win, your heart skips a beat, but if you lose…

Say goodbye to the World Cup…

While your watching the Spanish treat, set the box to record the controversial Panorama on BBC One at 8:30. This is the one which investigates corruption ahead of the World Cup vote, which takes place later this week. Expect all the fallout from the show tomorrow…

The Trigger is a new feature each weekday, rounding up the day’s LFC news and anything else of interest from the football world. Trigger takes it’s name from former full-back Rob Jones who spent 8 years at Anfield, making 243 appearances, but never scoring for the Reds. We expect to be just as prolific here.
