Houllier Performances Will Reap Results

Houllier Performances Will Reap Results

Gerard Houllier has said that he is confident that our performances of late will ultimately be rewarded with results as long as we keep putting the effort in.

Speaking on the Official Site as we move closer to the clash against Liverpool Houllier said that he has been pleased with the performances since he joined the club, but that it's about time we started picking up the results we deserve in games and got ourselves on a winning run.

'our football is good, it needs to improve in the final third and we need to be more clinical. We also need to eradicate some stupid, schoolboy errors which cost goals.'

We can all point to the games so far this season that we have no excuses for not taking all 3 points in, and in plenty of others - most recently the Blues game - were the overall performance simply didn't warrant a loss.

'We must win a game soon and the sooner the better. We need results. It is a shame because at times we have we are better than the team that has beaten us. I am sure what we are doing will be fruitful and pay dividends.'

Depending on how your view your glass, some fans see only the relegation zone and we sit in a rather worrying 16th place only 2 points ahead of the bottom 3, whereas others see that we are in a worrying 16th place but only two wins away from European qualification.

The table is so close this season that if we can get our act together we are by no means out of the race (whatever that race may be this season).

'What we have to do is work harder, stick together and have a mentality of not giving up. We know it is a difficult time. We are on 17 points. Maybe with five points, we would practically be in Europe. With 3 points less, we would be practically in the relegation zone. All I know is we could have done better in terms of points, also, without taking any credit away from Birmingham, we should be in the Carling Cup semi's.'

You wouldn't necessarily pick Liverpool as the team to right this wrong against, but we have to change from 'should' and start getting it right.

This obviously isn't lost on the management team, as assistant manager GaryMac adds in another article on the OS.

'Players have got to be affected by defeat. It's got to hurt but you have got to quickly brush it aside and move on. The demands of English football mean you don't get much time to sulk.'

Nothing better for a good sulk than winning!
