Sven Goes Barmy
It appears that Sven has finally lost his marbles. In tonight's friendly with Hungary he is going to play Jamie Carragher in midfield in a holding role, despite the fact he's never played there for Liverpool. Quite what Michael Carrick has done to deserve being edged out of the role is a complete mystery. With Peter Crouch playing up front on his own I have a great feeling of foreboding. Mind you, as the only non 17 year old fit striker, I suppose there's not a lot of choice. With the players we have at our disposal we ought to be one of the favourites for the World Cup, but I fear that Sven's lack of leadership and bizarre choice of teams will mean we won't past the quarter finals. I'm reading Robbie Fowler's autobiography at the moment and his experience of Sven is almost as bad as his time with Houllier. Great book, though.
