Liverpool Balls: Blame Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard
How football journalism works, with Robbie Savage, of the Daily Mirror. This week, Savage is tlaking about Liverpool:
Take away Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard from the side who almost won the title, and what did Liverpool have last season? They would not have finished in the top four. Probably seventh or eighth.
Got that? Savage says remove the three best players from the team that finished second in the Premier League and they would have finished lower in the table. Probably.
In his next column, Savage argues that without Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore and Gordon Banks, England might not have won the 1966 World Cup. Probably.
