I can’t leave the Reds alone…sorry.

Am I the only one who finds this whole issue of Liverpool in the Champions League highly entertaining?

A few weeks ago, I posted that Liverpool should take TNS up on their offer to play a pre-qualification round with them. Of course, that idea was rejected by all the sport’s governing bodies. But as fate would have it, guess who Liverpool drew in the first round? Ya gotta love the irony.

…and just to make things more amusing, TNS are now looking at playing their home leg at Goodison. Too bad it won’t happen, but I can hear the Welsh cash registers ringing from here. They are gonna milk this matchup for every penny they can get. Good luck to them.

I guess everyone ends up a winner. Liverpool get to defend their Cup. TNS get their big payday. But I still wonder who got bumped to make room for the Scousers.

    They’re now going to play the “home” match for TNS at a racecourse in Wrexham.

    Gotta love the Welsh FA. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I too find Liverpool’s European Vacation very entertaining.

    too bad it wasn’t those miserable bluenoses from goodison

  3. Daz…I’m waiting for Liverpool to meet Everton in the 3rd qualifying round. Now that would be epic. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Unless Liverpool score early it would be a dreadful affair to watch. Moyes has them playing a Houllier-esque style. In the two matches played last year, the Goodison match was all Liverpool and Everton only had 2 shots, of course one went in and Martyn had a blinder in their goal. In the Anfield match, Liverpool dominated in the first half and took the lead, in the last 10 minutes when it looked like Everton were going to lose, then the decided to play attacking footy.

  5. Let’s see how the Scouse Reds do at the Racecourse Ground first. ๐Ÿ˜‰
