Essential Betting Facts

Premier League

Huth does his war dance.

Anti Football kills the soul of any self respecting fan.

A "robust" Stoke City turned up at Anfield to play something thinly disguised as football but which for some unfathomable reason the referee decided was within the laws of the game.

Huths' clear stamp on Suarez in the early minutes should by any meaning of the law have been penalised with a booking at the very least and how Tony Pulls has the gall to stand there and say that Suarez was a discredit to the game is frankly laughable.

 Admittedly Suarez has not covered himself in glory with his poor effort at trying to con the referee into giving him a penalty but when you are being hacked down from every angle you can't blame the lad for trying to even up the contest.

Six bookings for the cloggers tells the story of the game and how Stoke managed to keep all eleven players on the pitch is a mystery.

The new regime at Liverpool is clearly trying to clean up the act at Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers obviously thinks that fouling the opposition is not the way to go – as witnessed by the zero yellow card count for the Reds – but this game would have tested the patience of a Saint and if it wasn't for Liverpool's desire to eradicate the booking count from their own ranks this would have been ugly indeed.

You can see the logic in the argument – how often are you going to win with ten men? But I can't be the only one wishing to see the ghost of a Souness or Mcmahon dishing out the retribution.

As for the football Liverpool once again dominated possession but struggled to impose themselves in the final third. Hitting the post three times and spurning several good chances to win the game.

Of most concern though is the insistence on playing the ball out from the back with Reina still delivering hospital passes to the midfield and leaving himself wide open to a chip from distance – and only a magical fingertip save spared his blushes on this occasion. But there is a disaster waiting to happen around the corner and better strikers would have taken advantage of the errors and scored two goals.

The positives for the Reds then were a clean sheet, which is most welcome. No more injuries, which is a minor miracle considering the beating Stoke meted out and one more game under the belt for the up and coming youngsters.

That's the last time I ever watch Stoke play "football". If you think it's bad being a Reds fan in this transitional period just think how bad it would be paying good money to watch that bunch of thugs week in week out.
