Well the last few weeks have been pretty decent to say the least. I was so pleased when Rafa had his contract extended for another 4 years plus the 1 left to work with us to 2013. It was great news during a non-football week.

After Fulham beat United on Saturday Liverpool's game against Villa was even more nerve racking. Liverpool started out well and were rewarded with an early goal. Gerrard could have added a second after a deflected cross. Once Villa got past that early pressure they were the better side for the next 20 minutes. Carew was causing us all kind of problems and Reina was forced into making a couple of fine saves.

Not much you can say after you thrash your old rivals 4-1 on their patch. It was an odd game really as I through both teams were sloppy in possession .Liverpool suffered two early blows with Alonso and Arbeloa ruled out over muscle injuries. Up stepped Hyypia and Lucas who both filled in very well. Hyypia was a rock at the back and Lucas was much more careful with the ball then he has been in previous weeks.

That was quite a night. Liverpool played like tigers for the 90 minutes and it's hard to remember a pefromance that was a good as that over the entire 90 minutes. The first half was breathtaking. Everr player was superb and trying to pick a man of the match from our side is difficult. Gerrard and Torres lead the line so well but for me the best player was Mascherano. He was just unbelievable but again I'm splitting hairs.

Well it was an interesting two games really. Torres was hurt again and Gerrard clearly not fit but we went to my least favorite ground, The Riverside in the hope of 3 points after a fantastic win against Madrid. The game went to form. Liverpool dominated early with Boro offering very little in attack. Liverpool couldn't take their chances and Boro started to get in to the match. Once they went ahead Liverpool looked flat and were outplayed in the second half. We slumped to our second league defeat of the season and we deserved to get beat.

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.
