Rivals’ Roundup: Fun while it lasted, I suppose…

Not entirely topical or relevant but still amusing.

It was the worst of times; it was the best of times. For the worst, we’d have to reach back to hallowed antiquity to bring you a recreation of the fall of the mighty Arsenal. ‘Twas less than a week ago, but the reverberations still resound in the memory. Thankfully, events of a more-recent vintage off a balm of sorts to the soul. We may have squandered a chance at winning the Prem, but I’m not willing to concede just yet, not when there are still a half-dozen or so matches out there. As disappointing as it may be to fall short, we’ve come a long way. Let’s get to the roundup…

Let’s not toss the baby with the bathwater…

Dammit. For a solid half hour, it looked like we’d put an end to our Anfield hoodoo, as goals from Martinelli and Jesus gave us a 0-2 lead. To then give Liverpool a lifeline and allow them back into the game has to feel a lot like we threw two points away, but to feel like that is akin to throwing the baby out with the bathwater, as the old saying goes. A point earned or two points dropped?

Beware Liverpool, the cornered beast!

To all outward appearances, this looks to be the ideal time for us to go into Anfield and come away with a vital win for the first time since 2012. Afte rall, Liverpool haven’t won in their last four outings (yes, two of those were tough away losses to Real Madrid and Man City, no shame in that) and sit in 8th place, their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League hanging by a thread. Even Klopp sounds like he’s thrown in the proveribal towel.

Of Hillsborough, hate-chants, and high stakes…

I know that it’s de riguer to hate on Liverpool, espcially as we’ve seen Liverpool’s recent spell of success come at our expense, with various hidings happening at their hand. Those of us who remember Liverpool’s dominance of the 70’s and 80’s might further fuel the fire…yet there’s a disturbing element to fans’ chants that I hope we earn a chance at spurning. Yes, I hope we can find a famous win or even a creditable draw. I just hope we don’t curdle the milk along the way.

Klopp’s conspiracy to deny Arsenal a Prem title…

After a losing 4-1 to Man City (a second consecutive loss after losing to Bournemouth), Jürgen Klopp rested Mohamed Salah, Virgin Van Djik, and Trent Alexander-Arnold for Liverpool’s midweek match against Chelsea. Needing a win to keep fading hopes of a top-four finish but resting key players? Keeping key players fresh ahead of a match against Arsenal? Clearly, Klopp’s move is a conspiracy with one goal: to deny us the Prem title.
