Vlog on the Pitch talks title racing with Wenger

February 27, 2009

Join vlogmeister Owen Wyatt as he takes the plunge and asks John Arne Riise whether he’s still a better player than Andrea Dossena, the man who replaced him at Anfield.

And talking of the Premier League, Arsene Wenger thinks Liverpool’s title hopes are still alive, and that none of the top teams are playing to their full potential. Dare to disagree with Wenger?

‘Jooooooooooohn Arne Riiiiiiissseee oooohh aagggghhhh I wanna knooooow when you’re comin’ home…’

Because Dossena is even worse than Sebastian Leto. And that’s saying something.

And can i just say what an excellent question to pose to Riise! Wyatt is a ‘vlogmeister’ at the very top of his game. Look out for the Chiswick based journalist to be a star for years to come.

Really classy response from John Arne there. It would of been so easy to take a cheap shot at Dossena – who has been dreadful – but instead he chose to back the Italian. Riise is still a red in hair and heart.

Agreed, very classy response. Go Liverpool, only one more position until they’re on top!

[...] On a final note, we all often moan about the plonker reporters who work for the likes of Sly Sports and Shitanta Sports etc. It’s not that we want these guys to just speak glowingly about Liverpool all the time, it’s that we’d at least like them to be fair and to ask the questions we would actually like to hear an answer to rather than the usual boring crap. There aren’t too many good examples of this but I had a link sent into me by Owen Wyatt of Reuters News and he’s a guy who seems to know what he’s doing and might be worth keeping an eye out for in the future. Does Riise think he is a better player than Dossena? Does Wenger think Liverpool are out of the title race? Check it out Here. [...]

Riise, your answer on Dossena is really class. So, so sorry that you had to leave LFC last year. Very painful memories of your own goal at the end of the Champion’s League quater-final game against Chelsea.
All good wishes to you at Roma.

What a classy answer given by John Ane Riise!!! I feel its very unfair that the way he is remembered, by a lot of Liverpool fans, for his time at Liverpool is that dreaded own goal and yet he still talks of his time and and the club with such passion!! A true Red!!
