This was the first time in a long time that I can remember a Liverpool league game not being on the TV. On the final day of the season all of the Premier league games start at the same time so Setanta and Fox Sports had some deciding to do. I can understand showing the relegation struggles first, Hull v United, Villa v Newcastle and Boro v West Ham but how Stoke v Arsenal, Everton v Fulham, even Blackburn v West Brom was shown over Liverpool. I resorted to watching it on a streaming feed and for what I could see of the match Liverpool dominated from start to finish. The only blemish on the match was that Robbie Keane prevented Reina from claiming his third golden glove awards with a late goal. To Keane's credit he did not celebrate on bit. It's to bad that it didnt' work out for Keane, but we were clearly a better team after he went back to Spurs.

Gerrard and Torres combined well for Liverpool to ease the nerves of the traveling supporters (and those watching on TV). Gerrard took his goal so well but his movement to create the space is what created the goal.
Give West Ham credit, they actually played much better in this game then the previous game at Anfield where they took a point from us.
