A case for the defence.

A case for the defence.

Apart from the never ending Andy Carroll talk, the fact of the matter is, we've been playing ok, excellent in patches. Ultimately it will be a case for the defence tomorrow.

We're missing our solid fortress (Saylor and Coloccini) but have in it's place a temporary wall bonded together by a couple of apprentice labourers. Some day's you'll get a mix of too much sand or cement which in turn will make that wall collapse if too much pressure is applied but if they are capable of getting the mix right then tomorrow would be the best time to do it.

It all points to goals though and you have to go back to 1974 since our last 0-0. Forgetting the 4-3's and the 6-5 game which was before our grandparents time.. There's a scattering of other games which have ended with similar freakish nature.. a 6-3, a 6-2, a 6-0 and our highest win against these of 9-2 back in 1934. Not likely to happen this year i may add but the thought is there.

Liverpool have a few injury doubts but they are just that. a doubt. This can mean that they could feature and we'll know more tomorrow. Charlie Adam and Lucas are the only certain absentees as far as im aware but those in doubt include Daniel Agger (maybe their best defender), Glen Johnson and Bellamy.

Away from the defence, it's all about confidence and ability on the day. They have players to hurt us and vice versa but we're at home and on a little bit of a roll. The crowd will be up for it, the players too. It's got all the ingredients for a classic. Surely this wont be a dour 0-0 draw?
