"There’s a snap about Liverpool that just isn’t there."

Okay, okay, let's not get too excited about the 'Pudlians peeing all over Bruce's Brum Bums at St. Andrew's. Morientes only tickled the nets because Gerrard served up a chance that the 968-year-old woman who lives downstairs from TDH in Hong Kong could have put away. Cisse added yet another to his tally of The Ugliest Goals Ever Scored, with a deflected shot that squirmed under Maik Taylor. Only Crouch and Riise were truly dangerous, with Gerrard in the wings (so to speak).

Still, TDH is grateful that the Koppers didn't open up this particular can of whoop-ass on Tyneside at the weekend. Something is clearly starting to work for the unprepossessing Rafael Benitez Maudes, CPA. Did you know, loyal readers, that as part of his contract Mr. Benitez also does Liverpool's taxes?

Ah, Samuel Eto'o. He was at his predatory best against Getafe - grabbed a brace, could have had more. All he does is score! Rijkaard must be hoping that the next African Nations Cup takes place in 2056. Oh, and there was a touching scene as Van Bommel consoled the future Pichichi winner after a miss. Those guys play football so guilelessly! Well, all of them except Belletti, that prick.

Finally, Wembley. TDH will most definitely not be one of the first fans to sit under that enormous arch. Hmm, running a little late, are we? Costs well over budget? Steel beams snapping? Three thousand workers evacuated? Er, TDH will wait to see what happens when England score and 90,000 Home Counties yobs start pogoing....

tdh - are you back in HK? If so, have some dim sum for me.

about the 'pool, I can't work out what's gone wrong with Morientes - he was excellent at Monaco, and now at the pool can only score when virtually impossible not too. Perhaps he's can only function at a slower pace with accurate service.

I think the secret to Morientes' success at Monaco can be spelled G-I-U-L-Y. The Frenchman is too easily ignored, and he set up quite a few of Moro's goals.

I'm still in Buenos Aires, probably returning to HK in September or October. I'll be in NYC for a bit, though, so dim sum is not out of the realm of possibility....
