Liverpool WINS !!!

That's something we haven't heard in a while. Two goals from the 'forgotten' Bruno Cheyrou knocked Newcastle out of the FA cup yesterday. Cheyrou has shrugged criticism from several quarters, and is beginning to justify his price tag with 4 goals in the last two weeks. Owen seems to have forgotten how to score (again) and Heskey is still being HEskey, but Kudos to "Captain Fantastic" Stevie Gerrard and Cheyrou for excellent performances yesterday. What I hope doesn't happen is everyone saying Liverpool has turned the corner, then we lose a few more games. Till we win about 10 in a row, let's concentrate on playing games, and everyone giving 100%.

In related news, the African Nations Cup began yesterday, with hosts Tunisia beating Rwanda last night 2-1. Tunisia are my pre season favourites, they have a very strong team, and are currently being managed by Roger Lemerre....former French Manager. Nigeria have a VERY strong team, with the likes of Jay-Jay Okocha, Yobo and Aiyegbeni, but I think poor organisation will let us down (again). Cameroun are also looking to win their 3rd Nations Cup in a row ! Let's wait and see.
