At half time I wrote:
Time to wake up and smell the coffee! A point is no good to either side. Utterly sterile first half - a game to make Allardyce proud! Hughes and Dalglish need to throw caution to the wind. It's three points or bust for both teams! Time for Taarabt to step up to the plate and justify his ego. A goal now would justify his cult status. At the moment the L should be replaced by an N!
Well it took the Hoops another 32 minutes to come out of their stupor but boy how did they wake up! 3-2 with three goals in the last 13 minutes! Incredible. The dead parrot has squawked! Can it escape the jaws of the Black Cats at the weekend? West Ham beat Liverpool at the same stage of last season so the Rs shouldn't get too carried away but this was one hell of a result. At last Hughes has won a must win game! Any coincidence that Barton was subbed?
