Well the scouse stew got stuck in our throat tonight and now its going to be hard work qualifying for the next round with only 1 point from 2 matches.

The first half performance was poor especially Orhan Ak, but then better defenders will struggle against Crouch. It also seemed like the team was slower and not prepared for the speed of an English team, even it was Spanishpool.

The second half was much better, I guess Gerets put a rocket up the teams collective ass and even though we conceded on more goal the fact that we scored two and had two penalty appeals waved away gives me some hope for the rest of the season. Sabri had one of his best games for a long time and so did Umit but why did Gerets start with Topal and not have Hasan on from the start.

Also look at Anfield, I wonder if the board understands the importance of home advantage yet, all the websites talk about Ali Sami Yen being intimidating so why the hell are we playing at the Olympic Stadium!!!!!!!!!

Anyway the group is still open, two teams on 4 and two on 1 after 2 games but we will have to win our next game against PSV to have a chance, we have done that before so here's hoping......

One thing I have learned after watching CimBom over the years is that they can be so unpredictable.

So, after Crouchie slotted in the 3rd goal probably lottsa TV sets were being switched off and people going to bed safe in the knowledge that the 4th would follow. Boring ......

All credit therefore to CimBom for storming back and creating panic in the Liverpool defence in the last quarter. It was sad to see a team of Liverpool's pedigree running the ball to the corner flag in the last few minutes to waste time !

Yes, I agree Gulay, you must beat PSV and you have to play like `tigers` for the 90 minutes and not just the last quarter of the match. Also, playing at Ali Sami would be as good as a goal start !!!

In the meantime, all eyes on tonights UEFA Cup matches with Fener, BJK, Trabzon and Kayseri on centre stage. Some have mountains to climb, so good luck to them all.
