Why has traffic slowed down so much on my beloved Liverpool board? Matt Clark hasn't been the same since his holiday - now he posts more on the England team than he does re: 'Pool!!! What is up with that, Matt? I know that the Turk fans/apologists are infuriating, but 'Pool deserves more of your time! Lanky and USScouse, along with 66134 or whatever your impossible to remember handle is, have done good work on the game threads. But what has happened to the analysis? Is 'Pools new, settled lineup and reasonably consistant play from each player left us with little to talk about? Is Houllier's position now (hopefully) no longer under so much scrutiny? Surely there need to be some whinging fans who wonder why Spud or Le Tellec are not playing more? What happened to all the critics of Diouf? Has his great work-rate and commitment in his new wide position satisfied (more or less) everyone? What about our mediocre showing against Olimpia Ljub-whatever? I suppose with the onset of the season itself, some of the Close Season stress has been relieved and seeing the club play a couple times a week leaves these boards a less important part of our support of our team - but those of us who can only rarely see matches miss the action here!
