You know when you’ve arrived.

Not when you emerge from your chaffeured motor and a kindly man in livery takes your decanter from you and says softly, ‘The girls are in the American bar for you, sir…’ No. It’s when you have the radio on after the results on a Saturday teatime and the voice says,’Next week they have Everton, but after that, they face a tough run against Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester United.’

We are – or at least very certainly on the brink of being – one of those sides you don’t fancy playing.

This is historic. Not just just because some johnny on the radiogram said it, because it’s actually ringing true and as a supporter I’ve only felt like this once before and that was in the early 80’s.

The game was good. By this I mean that at half time, I genuinely felt we’d given a good account of ourselves. Perhaps having recently sat through so many Horror Movies watching us as the slashed up and slain victim come back to life and vanquish the Killer Zombie, I was almost quietly confident we weren’t done quite yet.

The injuries are becoming a chore. But then who wouldn’t want Christmas off? It’s daft to go away even with the deals. You can’t beat being indoors, fire on whilst slowly overdosing on posh mince pies being ploughed into brandy cream. Running around in the cold with nothing to protect you from Jack Frost but a £1.99 pair of mittens from the Megastore? No ta, mush.

Liverpool are getting better. They haven’t recovered, definitely still trying to shake it off, whatever it was that they caught. 3-0 against East London’s finest was a false remission alright. Torres in particular ha that look about him that Berbatov had when he first went to Yanited. The eyes appear closer set, the chest thinner and lots of brief glimpses over the shoulder seems to be the body language of the down at heel sniper.

And so to the ratings. I know you want ’em.

Gomes – 6 Alright, unconvinced about some of his passing, mind.

Hutton – 6 Another alright. Loved his penalty dive. Proper Torville & Dean stuff.

Gallas – 8 By jove I think he’s got it!

Kaboul – 7 Can someone spin round the pubs and get King ready? Cheers.

A&E – 6 A real A&E performance. Wish he’d just be consistently good.

Azza Blud – 7 Is this a wing heeled wonder I see before me? Improving.

Palacios – 4 (Which includes 3 points for putting his shirt on the right way round)

Modders – 8 MOTM but lots of errant passes, particularly early on.

Bale – 7.68 On the end of some abysmal ‘tackles’, we seem to getting kicked by everyone.

3MP – 6.82 Won lots of headers. Yet to win my heart.

VdV – Huge loss.

Defoe – 0 (Which includes a 5 point deduction for seriously winding me up on the day of rest)

Bassong – 7.58 Steeped in and caught the eye. Good stuff.

    And despatched they were. Not aa great 1st half from our point of view. But from theirs, they were crap. I have never seen such a poor Liverpoolside, ever. The spaniard didnt look like he wanted to be there. They had 5 yellow cards, all for bad tackles. They cheated and wasted time and for bringing on a defender instead of Ngog must really take the biscuit for bindipper supporters. As for us, the best squad I heve seen for ages. COME ON YOU SPURS.

    Great game to watch back, did not enjoy watching it live. I thought we were shit at times, and they looked like they should have won. But the cream always rises to the top, we are getting into gear earlier this season and I now expect us to sweep all that are before us and claim that League title no excuses :whistle:

    Cheating scousers got what they deserved, constant fouling, cant believe they kept eleven on the pitch, ref obviously still thinks they are a top four team.
    Really pleased with the way we kept knocking on the door and finally got our reward. Great match.
    Come On You Spurs.

    HH. This article of yours made me chuckle. I don;t know whether its just the after effects of going from heart palpatations to relief at the final whistle, but even your typos were well done – I wonder what it is that Bassong is ‘steeped’ in. The right stuff? Courage and determination? Or brandy buttercream?

    We are so close to being one of those teams it’s scary. I don’t want this good feeling to go away. I’m addicted to it now and I need another hit. No Brummies – I didn’t mean a hatful of two footed studs up challenges on Baler.
