OK. I have not been this angry in a long time. Yes, I'm very disappointed that Liverpool had a terrible January with winning only one game and drawing four. Yes, I'm disappointed that we threw away another one goal lead on Wednesday night against a dreadful Wigan side.

Yes I can't stand the fact that our ownership remains in the hands of two people who have no concept of Liverpool football club. Yes I'm disappointed in that fact that Rick Parry can't seem to offer Agger a new deal and is the slowest moving CEO in sport.

But what disappoints me the most is the so called Liverpool supporters who send me emails saying that Rafa doesn't know what he is doing. If you are going to send me an email about that â.¦ save your time and don't bother as you wont' be getting a nice response from me.

The score-line might have been the same but this was a very different game. Everton deserved their draw on Monday as we didn't play well and they had a few good chances in the first half of that match.

In this game, minus a shot that went well wide in the early stages, their only other real attack of note, resulted in a goal from another set piece. The annoying Cahill again found space with Alonso ball watching. Skirtel then left Lescott who had little problems glancing his header past Reina.

Liverpool fielded a very attacking line up in Monday's derby with Alonso/Gerrard in the middle along with Keane and Torres up front. Many Liverpool fans have been calling out for this line-up an they got their wish only for it not to pay off.

Keane looked hopeless and while the manager has not helped his confidence it is up to player to take his chances. Keane never had a shot on goal. Liverpool's danger men were again Torres and Gerrard and those two should play up front, when fit, from here on out.

I was recently on a trip to Las Vegas for work and attended the Consumer Electronic show (CES). As always when I travel for work and Liverpool are playing I always hunt down the a pub that is showing the match. Finding the Crown and Anchor in Vegas was not hard as I been there a few times in years past, the most memorable of which was Liverpool's League Cup Victory over United. Unfortunately this visit was not as memorable. Joined by a few reds from Wigan we settled in to watch what was Liverpoolâ..s' worst performance of the season.

Liverpool were very impressive against Bolton and played with a desire to get that early goal. I was really impressed with everyone on the pitch that day but especially Alonso in the center of the park. He made things look so easy and pulled all the strings. It is crazy to think that we were going to sell him in the summer and hopefully any of the rumour that he still might leave are just that, rumors.

Once Riera used the bottom of his boot to score Liverpool looked to be in charge. Bolton's only real chance of the game was inside of the first minute. Once that chance went begging we rarely looked to be in trouble. Keane capped off an excellent 90 minute display with two fine goals, the first was a great strike after a fantastic through ball by Gerrard and the third was a fantastic Liverpool move that started with our keeper. Gerrrard was even afforded the luxury of a rest. Special praise must go to our young left back Insua. I have been hoping he would get a few chances this season and the illness to the Doss at Arsenal might have been the best thing to happen to Insua's career. He has taken his opportunity with both hands and was excellent all day against Bolton.

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.
