The fear factor returns Anfield !

The fear factor no longer gives visiting players and managers sleepless nights ahead of their annual visit to Old Trafford.

This phenominum has now packed its bags and resides 35 miles down the road at the home of Manchester United's bitterest rivals.

THIS IS ANFIELD the sign erected in the tunnel by Bill Shankly half a century ago can now once again proudly claim to have the bragging rights for the venue that sends a chill down the spines of all who come to challenge the new and,from what we have recently observed,rejuvenated Liverpool FC

The systemic changes we have all had to painfully observe over the last eight months have seen the collapse of our own fortress with the Theatre of Dreams tuned into House of Horrors as seven teams have come away with victories,something unknown in decades of home successes.

Teams who would meekly surrender year after year almost before the referee's first whistle ,now mop up the three points without really breaking into a sweat.

Newcastle ,Everton,and West Brom haven't won at M16 in a generation but all proved too much for Moyes' outfit,with City and Liverpool cruising to 3-0 triumphs leaving the home faithful stunned,if not silent.

Contrast this capitulation with Liverpool's goal bonanza,particularly at Anfield.Suarez ,who missed the opening six matches with suspension ,now has 29 to,his credit a phenomenal effort with half a dozen games to play.

But it's the way they come storming out of the blocks in the opening minutes that is most impressive of all.

United conceded early and could never recover,Arsenal were turned inside out in another blistering open,and yesterday,Spurs were put to the sword with Kabul representing a quivering jelly with his culpability for the two goals that saw the game settled in the first 20 minutes.

City and Chelsea must be more than apprehensive about their respective visits to Merseyside as they attempt to derail Brendan Rodgers' express train to claim the title fir themselves.

In a season of increasing frustration at our own failures and limitations we can only sit on the sidelines and watch as the whole scenario unfolds,with little satisfaction to be gained at the change of fortunes as our proud title moves on from the place it knows the best.
