Day ‘N Nite-Kid Cudi

Maybe switching up music genres will help Liverpool string together a pair of positive results.

Last week the Reds fell behind early against Tottenham and never caught up. In a rare mid-week league fixture, Liverpool conceded early twice and needed a Gareth Bale own goal just to avoid being on the wrong end of a clean sheet. The Reds then took on EPL newcomers Southampton and earned three points behind a Daniel Agger first half goal.

One step forward and two steps back.

With each passing day it becomes more and more difficult for me to get excited about the future. Last week we heard rumors of signing Daniel Sturridge and Theo Walcott. This week Brendan Rodgers is calling Raheem Sterling “foolish” if he chooses not to sign a new extension at Anfield. Even the staunchest of Brendan Rodgers supporters have to be wondering what the future will bring. For all the fanfare surrounding his new style and approach to Liverpool Football Club, the team still looks largely like the one Kenny Dalglish put together last season. Luis Suarez has 10 league goals this season. Nobody else has more than one. The Reds continue to fail to put away scoring chances. Many (including Rodgers himself) will lay the blame for the Tottenham loss on referee Phil Dowd. I don’t buy it. Liverpool simply were not good enough. They did get the win on Saturday, but against a top flight newcomer you would have to expect a bit more than a Daniel Agger header to save you.

It isn’t all gloom and doom though. Saturday saw the return of Lucas after a three month absence due to a thigh injury. The Brazilian holding midfielder showed off his value right away as the Reds looked much better on the defensive side of things. I doubt anyone can question the value of Lucas after his performance Saturday. The upcoming schedule also brings a bit of holiday cheer as the Reds prepare to travel to Udinese for their last group match in Europa League play before a trip to London to take on West Ham in league play. After that Aston Villa comes to town so there are opportunities in league play to climb the table. Currently Liverpool sit second in their Europa League group, but they haven’t locked up a spot in the next round just yet.

Kid Cudi has some solid songs with motivational lyrics. Let’s hope the Reds are extra fired up for the next 10 days or so. They’ll need to take full advantage of their next two league opponents if they want to make a statement about their intentions for the second half of the season. They’ll also need to continue to search for someone other than Luis Suarez who can consistently finish chances and show that their days of offensive ineptitude are dead and gone.

In the meantime Liverpool fans must continue to avoid pulling all their hair out in frustration.
