Jamie Carragher: I'd have loved to have won the title at Liverpool but there was always someone better than us
Glee: Carragher shared in the club's triumph the Champions League victory in Istanbul in 2005. But he asks: 'Were we really ever good enough to win the title?'

‘At times it can be difficult, especially the last few years when it hasn’t gone well. It’s great when you’re winning, fantastic.

When you’re not, it’s the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning and the last thing you think of when you go to bed. People say, “Do you enjoy winning?” But sometimes you win a game and you’re just happy that you haven’t got the feeling you have when you lose. It’s a bit like, “Thank ****  we haven’t lost”.’

He is reminded how Andy Murray explained that his overwhelming feeling on winning the US Open on Monday was relief.

‘Yeah! Yeah! It’s not joy,’ says Carragher. ‘You’re so happy that you haven’t lost. That’s what it is sometimes. Sometimes when you play for a big club, you’re expected to win, so it’s not a big thing unless it’s a cup final or a massive game against Manchester United or Everton.

‘It’s not so much I’m worried about the Press hammering us. A lot of the time it’s just relief that you haven’t got that sick feeling for a few days.’

Because sportsmen are often not good at confronting home truths, it is tentatively suggested that he is never going to win the league with Liverpool.
