Black: Red & Blue

After my epic flounce out of Leeds to kick off the 05/06 season, my quest to get Liverpool back in the big time at the first opportunity is not going to be as easy as I thought. In fact, it’s an epic struggle. There was also a boat load of manager changes – and that’s what we’ll kick off with

evans to sociedadRoy Evans pre-dates the footsteps of Chris Coleman and David Moyes and takes on the Sociedad job, poor old Roy was on top of the world 6 years ago and now his reputation is in tatters. Speaking of which, France qualify for the World Cup and decide the best solution is this:

Anyway, back at Liverpool we’re all about the seriousness

happy daysThe season is taking a bit of an upturn, with results like this

7-3Good old Nevland. That’s sadly as good as it gets and a lot of thrown away wins into draws means our promotion hopes are in balance.

It could be worse though, poor old Riccy

LC semis 06I’m sure it’ll be a thriller. In the FA Cup, we had a brief flurry to the 5th round which included beating Premier League Wolves

Meanwhile the Premier League looks like this:

Meanwhile at the bottom, Coventry are slipping away with WBA but the last spot could be tight. Look at Arsenal failing again.
