    I`d say out of luck for certain. The reality was, had Harewood not been attacked by cramp,he`d have scored a very late winner for West Ham. This, i would deem very bad luck. Yes, cramp affected players from both sets of teams, but ultimately cramp struck West Ham far the bigger blow. It was a big loss to West Ham, for Harewood to have missed a sitter, which effectively what it was and could be described as, had he not been suffering from cramp, a cramp which effectively ensured West Ham didn`t score a winner in the dying stages. This is very bad luck. Liverpool would have had very little time left to equalize, had Harewood converted that golden chance.
    Harewood would have had very little chance to put that ball in the back of the net if they hadn't earlier fluked a cross into the goal, poked in a shot dropped by Reina and had Carra fumble one in for them. That's what i call good luck for West Ham. West Ham were lucky to have scored three goals. Can you say the same of our goals?

    Good luck is that amazing goal from Gerrard to equalise at 3-3, wasn`t it the last minute also? (not to mention Gerrard was struggling with cramp himself only minutes before his shot, so he was lucky he got in such a shot which seemed cramp-free, his shot wasn`t disabled by cramp like Harewoods, he and Liverpool should consider themselves forever fortunate for this!) How many of those actually find the back of the net in a real match situation? Very few. Very few of that quality go in, even in the club training context. When it came to luck, and luck deserting a team in the most significant of times and contexts, West Ham had a foul time with it. Liverpools mistakes, leading to West Ham`s goals, were forced by West Ham`s good, positive attacking intent - i think Liverpool were surprised at how West Ham came out of the block, didn`t seem much anxiety in their play. Maybe Liverpool started to realise just how dangerous the underdog,`nothing to lose` mentality can be,hence mistakes materialized. You`re overly harsh on West Ham`s playing achievements that day,IMHO.

    All of our goals were scored in the ways that they were intended. All of theirs were the result of a fluke or a mistake by one of our players. Gerrard's goal was only as lucky as any shot at goal that goes in. And even if you discount that one, we still scored two others with no help from them, or from a fluke.

    On any other day of that season Carra would have lumped that ball into the crowd or left it for Reina to pick up. On any other day Reina would have collected Benayoun's, not weak, but not strong shot and thrown the ball out for another attack. On any other day Konchesky's cross would have been headed or punched out from somewhere between the penalty spot and the six yard box. West Ham played well, and justified their place in the final, but their play didn't justify a victory. We were slightly better than them on the day

    Yes, firstly your team will get to hear this in a defening tone before the match.

    At Anfield in a cup competition?

    Then you get to hear this after the match.

    Opposition teams are so lucky

    I'd rather watch Arsenal keep passing, passing and passing and keep going into our brick wall.

    Heya, this is just an idea for a society! The Italian Football Society!

    Do many people on here enjoy watching Italian football or even support an Italian team? If you guys do then perhaps we can make an Italian football society! Lets discuss all things Italian football in this thread!
    What Italian team do you support?

    Moving slightly off-topic. Which match do you think will/would you like to be televised on the BBC?

    I hope the Macclesfield game gets shown, although I think it could be the Arsenal game. Might end up being the Reading game for all we know :rolleyes:.

    I was thinking about this the other day, and I'd be intrigued to know what other people think.
    Do you think managers have a "level", the same way players do? For example, if you took a good conference player and bung him in the Premiership, he'd crash and burn. However, if you took a manager, put him in charge of a decent premiership club, would he be successful or would he too have reached his "limit"? There are undoubtedly cases of the best ones being successful at a higher level (Martin O'Neill for example), but would an "average" conference manager be an "average" premiership manager, or is there a ceiling on their abilities the same as a player? I'm just interested what people think.

    I think they do. Mick McCarthy is a Championship manager.
