It's a match Liverpool should be winning. In their current form, Liverpool are tough at home, at least. Unfortunately with Hodgson, you can expect the unexpected, which mostly means losing or drawing games they should really be winning. If the "Hoofball" tactic makes a return, they'll surely lose or barely draw. So I don't think I need to predict the final score.

Liverpool 0-0 Aston Villa

Boring game with little or no chances and both teams trying not to lose.

Will amaze me if either midfield touch the ball as the defences (both standing on their own 18 yard lines) hoof it to each other in the hope of catching the other on the break.

Still deciding whether or not to go tonight. Monday night, freezing, expensive, 'The Hodge', the football. Meh.

No, football is about turning up for a match looking forward to seeing your team play, having a few pints and some craic at the pub before and heading up those stairs already singing and looking forward to the game.

Paying £45 plus travel to turn up to watch a team set up in the antithesis of how you were brought up to think football should be played with a manager who only take his foot out of his mouth to change feet and every man and his dog on the kop knowing that he's not up to the job and responding with overwhelming apathy is not really what football is all about. :)
