Watching Liverpool drew 1-1 with Birmingham shows how Liverpool badly miss Xabi Alonso. No one is able to fill his position and keep feeding the wingers and strikers. All is depending on Steven Gerard which is heavily marked and not in top form. As a Liverpool supporter, I am sad to say that I don't believe Liverpool will get 4th placing this year. They will probably make it top 6. If no money going to spend on this summer, Liverpool is doomed next season.
