Adios Xabi Alonso

"It will be hard for them to match last season, let alone improve on it. Other teams will know more about them, so it has to be Chelsea as the main threat." That is the exact word coming out from Sir Alex "Know it all" Ferguson's mouth recently. He has written off Liverpool chances of winning the title even before the league started.

To be honest, and no matter how harsh it may be, I kind of agree if the current pre-season form and transfer market activities is an indication. The loss of Xabi Alonso is a major blow and although he was immediately replace with Alberto Aquilani from Roma, he is yet to proof his quality and hope not to be another "Dossenna".

Pre-seson friendlies result is not that good and the defeat by Espanyol with all full team in the squad is alarming. Liverpool still rely heavily on Torres and Gerrard for the third year running but as Ferguson said other teams will know more about their partnership style of play and it may be difficult for them to excel. Hope they can proof me wrong.
