If you don’t buy a ticket, you don’t win the lottery…

January 27, 2010

…and by the same token, if you don’t get shots on target in football games, you don’t score goals.

You don’t really need chalkboard analysis to describe how bad Liverpool are, but here is some evidence for you.

In their past two away games, Liverpool have had a grand total of two shots on target. One in each game. Against Stoke, it was a bundle over the line from two yards from Kyrgiakos.

Against Wolves, Liverpool didn’t even have a threatening attempt from within the area – they resorted to hopeful long-range punts, of which just one, from Albert Riera (right), was on target.

There is nothing unlucky about Liverpool’s plight – they’re simply not giving themselves any chance of winning football games.
