Liverpool End 09/10 Season With A Draw

Image
My player of the season for Liverpool...
It wasn't a superb end to the campaign nor was it necessarily entertaining and although it was disappointing, it just didn't seem relevant in the midst of the managerial uncertainty and financial situation currently faced by the football club we all hold so dear.
There were some positives to highlight but whist Chelsea were banging in 8 against Wigan and United still managed to net 4 against Stoke despite the fact they missed out on the title, it was another example pointing out the ever increasing gap between Liverpool and the current battle-axes at the top of the table.
Going into the game Liverpool were already aware that the best possible finish in sight was 6th, this was also providing that the Aston Villa result went their way, with that in mind, the lads had that and the prospect of finishing on a high note as the incentives.
It was a decent first half from Liverpool with some lively play and a few attempts at goal. Notable efforts …

Liverpool 6 Hull 1

A brilliant display from the Red's this afternoon with the highlight being on the hat-trick hero Fernando Torres. Steven Gerrard also was back onto the score sheet and super sub Ryan Babel made an impressive impact with two goals after coming off the bench. Hull's only offer was an equalizer from Geovanni which didn't last long.

The Red's got on with the job in hand fairly early into the first half with Torres setting off the scoring just after the ten minute mark, he picked up a lovely cross from Riera on the left wing and swiftly side stepped Sonko with ease, once the space was created he slotted the ball home.

A somewhat clumsy header from Martin Skrtel is headed into the path of Geovanni who takes full advantage and the ball flies into the net. 1-1.

Liverpool V Hull

Image
We welcome Phil Brown and his lads down to Anfield today. It is no secret that Hull are in a very bad place at the moment, they have not won away from home since March the 4th, they last won at home against Bolton.

They haven't scored more then one goal in 20 consecutive matches compared to a Liverpool team that has scored in all of their last 17 premier league games. Last season however as we all know Hull were one of the teams that caused that dreaded draw, one of which added to the slipping of the title out of our hands. I don't think this will be the case today, Hull were a far stronger team at that time last season.
We have met Hull 8 times in the league, winning 6 and drawing the remaining two.
My prediction - 2-0.
