Liverpool Get Their Come Uppence!
Ok, loyalties might be divided here; I mean who, on a West Ham site, wants Chelsea to do well? But the fact of the matter is that I have hated Liverpool with an absolute vengeance ever since they cheated their way to that FA Cup win in the 'best final ever'. It was that England traitor, Carragher, as I understand it, who told his team-mates to close down Scaloni after he had sportingly put the ball into touch so a Liverpool player could be treated. Any fair minded side would have thrown the ball out for a goal kick, but not the Carragher led cheats in red. They threw the ball to Scaloni, closed him, and forced him to hurry a clearance onto the foot of Gerrard; and the rest is history.
The interesting thing was Sherringham's reaction as Scaloni played it into touch. He knew what Liverpool would do and let rip at the Argentinian, pointing down the line to where the ball should have been cleared. Scaloni looked amazed at the verbal assault, no doubt believing what he had been told all his life, about the Brits being crap at football but leading the world in sportsmanship. How ironic, given all the history of games between the two nations, that the Argentinian took the sporting route, and the "Englishman" gave instructions to cheat. Never mind the "Hand of God", we West Ham fans talk of the "High Pitched Whine of God" - "Close him, close him, close him, and to hell with sportsmanship!"
I hate Carragher anyway because, like Scholes, he walked out on England because he wasn't first pick. Patriotism? Just like fair play, Carragher doesn't understand the concept! Well it's 3-1 again Jamie Cheater, lets see you come back from that one!
