Tottenham came for a draw and defended with every man behind the ball. Scott Parker didn't cross the halfway line. They're a good team so it was always going to be hard to break them down.
It was a decent match, it's just that modern football fans are joyless and spoilt - they're part of the Sky Sports generation and think that every game should be a 7-goal thriller in 3-D with IMAX that they can watch from the comfort of their living room. Football isn't like that - it's pretty crap half the time, it's just that if you follow a team then you follow them whether it's 3-3 or 0-0.
As Bill Shankly said, if you can't support us when we draw or lose, then don't support us when we win.
Liverpool have got good players and a proven manager. It's going to take time to undo the havoc created by Hicks and Gillette, Benitez's last season (we're still getting rid of his fringe players) and Hodgson's reign of catastrophe (is the honeymoon over for West Brom fans?)
