Are Liverpool In For A Fright?
Ok, you can take your halloween mask off now Kev...
Liverpool travel to Bolton tomorrow to face Owen Coyle's side in what could be an eventful clash. Bolton are in the top half of the table at the moment and going well. They've lost no games at home so far this season so could be hard to break down.
As for Liverpool well we all know where we are, in the bloody relegation zone. Liverpool are also yet to get an away win chalked up on the board so if the tides are beginning to turn in our favour after a pleasing Blackburn win then really we need to beat Bolton on their home turf.
Problem is, yet again, confidence is running low for me. Going on the Blackburn display i'd fancy us, but going on our recent collective displays... Well it's a worry.
Bolton have quite a big injury list and will be without Gardner, Davis, O'Brien and Samuel. Goal threats Elmander and Kevin Davies however will be available for Coyle.
Liverpool are still without Dirk Kuyt and Daniel Agger who are both still recovering from injuries. Glen Johnson also in the recovery process will however be subject to a late fitness test to determine whether he will feature.
Liverpool's last trip to the Reebok of course was a goal fest, Liverpool just about taking the three points after a 3-2 win.
It would be nice to see Roy field another decent midfield tomorrow, in other words leave Poulsen on the bench. It's just silly now, it's clear he's not fitting into the side and starting him is just ridiculous. Maybe, just maybe he can become beneficial as an "off the bench player" but at Liverpool i highly doubt he's going to make a name for himself starting in the centre.
I'd much rather see Meireles and Lucas in the middle tomorrow with Gerrard behind Torres. Would like to see Jovanovic start too, feel as though he needs it and his strength against Bolton could be a good card in our deck.
Don't know about you lot but i've got this horrible vision of Kevin Davies netting a header late on and taking a point off us. Don't know why, but let's just hope i've not suddenly gained an ability to see into the future!
Might have a punt on old Kyrgiakos tomorrow to net first i think too! Shall have to check me funds.
Anyway, lets hope tomorrow we get a treat and not a trick ay?
