Carragher silences critics

Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher feels his recent form has helped to silence those critics who had written him off.

Jamie Carragher: Pleased with his level of performance this season

Jamie Carragher: Pleased with his level of performance this season

At the start of the 2012/13 campaign, it was suggested that the veteran centre-half would struggle to hold down a regular role when faced with competition from the likes of Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel.

Carragher did drop out of the Liverpool side for a spell, but has forced his way back into Brendan Rodgers' thoughts since Christmas.

He has justified his inclusion with a number of assured displays and is delighted to have played his part in the Reds' resurgence.

The 35-year-old has already announced that he will retire at the end of the season, and he is hoping he can maintain his high standards and bow out on a high.

Carragher told the Liverpool Echo: "At the start of the season I was aware that some people were saying I wouldn't suit Rodgers' style of football. But I think I have put that to bed in the last few games I have played.

"I think I've played well this season, without blowing my own trumpet. Even earlier in the season when I was playing in Europe and in the Carling Cup, I was quite pleased with how I performed.

"Hopefully I can carry that through to the end of the season.

"I enjoy the international week because you get to see some of the young lads who have come down from the academy.

"It's a good time to recharge physically and mentally and get ready for Aston Villa (on Sunday)."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
