Liverpool have not won a league title since 1990 and are the last team not to win the Premiership when being first on Christmas, but most of the reds fans (including me, yes, I believe, “You Will Never Walk Alone”, etc.) feel like this could be their year (again, for the 23th consecutive time).
As it seems the Christmas spirit affected Jamie Carragher too, who answered the question “Can Liverpool win the league, Jamie?”, with “Liverpool could win it”:
As you can see, the former Manchester United defender Gary Neville agrees.

Liverpool fans should be happy as it seems the club is in safe hands. It looks like their managing director Ian Ayre is working hard on the transfer front, helped by the club living legend Robbie Fowler.
Paolo Di Canio’s Italian accent can get him into trouble in the future. In the video above, the former Lazio, Juventus and West Ham player says “you can’t” in a way that can be easily misheard as “you cunt!”.
New Order performed their classic single “Bizarre Love Triangle” and the opening track of the just released collection Lost Sirens “I’ll Stay With You” in the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” late-night talk show.
Not surprisingly, their former bass player Peter Hook blamed his former bandmates for selling their souls to the devil for money. He wrote in Twitter:
Just seen ‘New Order’ on Kimmel.. Beam me up Scotty… Power, Corruption & Enterprise.
Jason Bent is a comedy character played by the English comedian Simon Brodkin. Bent is a conventionally dull and not very intelligent footballer, who plays in the Premiership. He has chavvy haircut with blond highlights and speaks with a working-class scouse accent.
On 16 March 2013 Brodkin, dressed as his alter ego Jason Bent, ran onto the pitch during the warm-up to Everton vs. Manchester City Premier League football match. He made an attempt to warm-up with the City players, but was arrested by Merseyside Police for pitch encroachment.
Brodkin was subsequently charged with pitch encroachment under the Football (Offences) Act 1991, and received, on 3rd April 2013, a six-month conditional caution at North Liverpool Community Justice Centre.
Raymond Shaw, Brodkin’s defending solicitor, told the court that the comedian wanted to apologise for the inconvenience he caused.
Shaw said: “It was intended to be a humorous act and intended to be funny.”
“It is clear from the television footage that some of the players were amused but he didn’t know it was a criminal offence.”
“He expressed his remorse immediately when he was spoken to by the club and the police and he does so again now.”
Brodkin left court in his Jason Bent persona, followed by a glamorous Wag-style “girlfriend” called Crystal, and read a series of jokes in a scouse accent.
Check out the video where Bent makes his statement in front of real journalists. He took a dig at Carlos Tevez and John Terry.
