They built playing Liverpool up to be such a psychological factor in the game that teams were **** scared to play in front of the Kop - hence Fortress Anfield.
Now it's for different reasons ! *bang on head* *nokia tune goes off*

West Ham seem to be having fun, I reckon they'll proabably be in the premiership next year.

Sheringham is brilliant- he's 39 and plays like a 24 year old A bit like Cole.

I appreciate that but find it a bit weird that one Chelsea game can remind you of the most succesful team in English football history. I've got many videos of games under Shanks, Sir Bob, Fagan and Kenny. What you say about grinding out results is true, but that's a hallmark of all top teams. They can all win when playing badly. And yes, Chelsea's defensive record beat the one set by us in 78-79 but it was just an odd/slight OTT statement is all. Incidentally, if you want total football the 7-0 mauling of Spurs in 78 and even better the 5-0 against Forest in 88.

The backbone to Mourinho's Porto and Chelsea is the defence ; goalkeeper plus back four and holding midfielder (Makelele). A strong defence and some inspiration upfront is the key. Liverpool's domination of Europe was at a time when the pace of football was far slower and based on keeping possesion of the ball and slicing teams apart.

''For those of you watching in black and white, Liverpool are the team with the ball.''
True.

If he plays, he'll have had a knock. If so, let's set Momo on him! I really wanna see the teamsheet!

Now this is an interesting line-up:

Reina
Josemi Carragher Hyypia Traore
Garcia Sissoko Alonso Zenden
Crouch Sinama

As for the starting line-up, it all depends on the service to the front men, as well as Crouchy holding the ball up fo Garcia and Pongo. It's definitely tactical, and a bit of a gamble, but I reckon he's implying a 2nd half blitz with Gerrard & Cisse on tired Betis legs.

My thoughts too. Still, he's the successful european manager, who are we to say anything? Probably scuppered some pre-match Betis plans too, I should think. It'll be an immense game though, I can feel it!

2-0.
Well, Betis are the weak team in the group, shouldn't be that significant a win!
