Losing a few games is not a crisis

“‘The crisis of yesterday is the joke of tomorrow,’ HG Wells once wrote. Not that you’d have found anyone at Anfield on Sunday laughing about the previous day’s defeat at Fulham, or players and coaching staff at Real Madrid last week watching footage of the 4-0 defeat at Alcorcon in the Copa del Rey, and sitting around clutching their sides at a defensive performance that lead to arguably the most humiliating result in the club’s history. For the rest of us, of course, the hilarity is there from the start, whether we are laughing at the results, or whether we are laughing at the idea of teams like Liverpool and Real being in ‘crisis’.” (WSC)
