Boxing Day At Blackpool
If the match is off i say we all throw snowballs at Gary Neville...
Liverpool's Boxing Day trip to Blackpool may be off before we've even thought of who's going to be in the starting line up. Blackpool are the only Premier League club who don't have under soil heating. With well equipped grounds in the country already struggling to cope it's looking doubtful that Blackpool's pitch and surrounding areas will be usable/safe.
For this reason this match preview is going to be ridiculously short (yes that's right even shorter than usual! haha) although fingers crossed the game actually goes ahead.
Liverpool still have injuries to Carragher, Agger and Spearing. Captain Steven Gerrard was believed to be making his return against Fulham but after the match was postponed this still remains a mystery. Should the game go ahead on Boxing Day though you would like to think the number 8 will start.
Blackpool are holding out ok concerning injuries with their main men still available. Luke Varney who has been causing problems for several defences in the league i feel is the player to look out for.
Of course many Reds were looking forward to the trip to Blackpool on Boxing Day and i'm sure one too many bevvies afterwards! So if the match is on are we confident in Liverpool's ability?
I personally think after the embarrassing defeat at home to Blackpool we will definitely struggle. Our away form in general is terrible and i'm convinced this tie with the Seasiders will be no different.
***Update*** Match postponed due to frozen pitch.
