I understand, after hearing from ESPN, that this is my last blog. Sorry to tell you that I did not get sacked as I know many of you were hoping for that...first of all I can't get sacked for something I was not paid for! second of all, espn is moving away from these types of correspondent pages so it wasn't about me (at least that is what I'm telling myself).

Great to see the lads back on the pitch. It was fantastic to see the travelling kop (and some loud Roma fans) as well decorate a famous baseball stadium. The pitch looked pretty decent considering it's a baseball field, although it did look small on the TV. The Green Monster was a great backdrop for the game. I would have loved to have gone but it was just bad timing and a bit expensive and I would rather only go see games that actually matter.

Brendan Rodgers will be announced as the new Liverpool manager on Friday. I have to say I had barely heard of him until this season. I didn't even know he was with Chelsea under the self-proclaimed Special One until reading up about him.

I can't sit and here and tell you I thought he was our top target all along, how I was desperate for LFC to get his signature, how I know he will turn things around for us, because that would all be rubbish.

Whether you agree with the decision to part company with Kenny Dalglish or not, I'm pleased with how Liverpool owners FSG are going about the business of finding a replacement manager and new director of football.

Ayre did the required (some not required) interviews after the decision was made and said that big managers still fancy us, which I believe to be true. After that it has gone all quiet from FSG, which is the way Liverpool should go about doing this.

Ayre said "It's absolutely critical that we get it right and we move forward" before going all quiet.

When Kenny Dalglish got the call from FSG on his holiday he knew he was the only man who could save Liverpool. Of course, Kenny being Kenny he dropped whatever he was doing and jumped at the chance to manage the club that as meant everything to him since 1977. Liverpool's favorite adopted son walked out at Old Trafford a day later knowing that he had to galvanize a squad that had completely lost their way.

Thank god that is over. That was the worst league campaign in my lifetime (I'm 43) in terms of goals scored and our performance at home. All those supporters who wanted Rafa out, after one year of not making the champions league, should be ashamed of themselves. We were spoiled back then and didn't realize how good we had it. Well now that we have had an additional two years of inept performances we have our previous ownership, Christian Purlsow, the supporters and media who drove Rafa out to blame.

Liverpool failed to turn up at for the first hour at Wembley on Saturday and as Kenny said after the match you can't give a team like Chelsea a two goal lead until you start to play. Credit to the lads for fighting back and if you look at it on the balance of clear cut chances no one would have said that 2-2 would have been unfair on us. Liverpool's line-up was a bit of surprise to me but then again probably any starting 11 would have been a surprise. I was shocked that Carroll didn't get on from the start and I just couldn't fathom what Stewart Downing had done to deserve a place on the field but I'm not the manager so I was ready to support the boys from my couch some 6,000 miles away.

Well they used to say that the only thing certain in life is Death and Taxes but I think they can add a third pillar, Liverpool beat Everton at Wembly.

Today my post does not focus on football, but rather please take a moment to remember that in 1989 96 supporters of Liverpool Football Club went to watch a match and never came home. My heart goes out to their families. YNWA

Sacking's, 3 points and oh yeh, A semi final with the blues

Blacburn vs Liverpool wasone of the weirdest football games I have a seen in a good long. The game was not really coming to life over the first 15 minutes with both sets of players feeling the game out. Liverpool had provided the game with much live besides for some clever passes by Shelvey and lots of good running by Bellamy. Other then that this had all the makings of a tight 0-0 affair.

Kevin Brodie Kevin Brodie has been fortunate enough to see some of Liverpool’s greatest teams and players in action over the last 35 years. Reds fans are spoiled for choice in trying to pick their favourite memory. The best early memory I have of watching Liverpool in person was our 7-0 thrashing of Spurs, with the 7th goal being a thing of beauty. Watching us in 89 lift the FA Cup after the terrible disaster at Hillsborough was also very special. My favourite Liverpool moment on the TV has to be the Champions League final in 2005. It was a day I will never forget.
