Manchester United were handed a life line in a game that was slipping away from them by the man in the middle, England’s best ref Howard Webb on Sunday. Of course, our left back didn't help matters by heading a simple clearance directly to Valencia but it was not a penalty kick.

All contact was made outside the box and the man with ego never even went to ask his assistant referee what he saw which is simply not what a good ref should do. I understand the argument that Masch perhaps should have gone, at a full speed, I thought the same but in watching the reply Carragher was clearly in the box so a yellow was the correct card but the penalty was harsh.

I had to wait 24 hours after watching Wigan v Liverpool to put "pen to paper". I have only ever walked out of a game once (and that only lasted two minutes before I came back in) -the game was an FA Cup match against Chelsea when we were winning 2-0 and lost 4-2. Our second half display was dreadful that day!

The Blackburn correspondent for this website chose to attack our manager in his write up, saying that he will leave us with this latest score of two red cards to five, however he overlooks the fact that two of his players should have seen red in that game.

Rafa doesn't mind a physical approach as long as it's played inside of the rules. Rafa can say whatever he wants about Allardyce and whiskey nose's insane comments after we played them off the park in last year’s fixture.

I will leave him with the only the score that matters, Liverpool 2 Blackburn 1.

So nice to see Liverpool’s number 9 back in action against Blackburn on Sunday. He was marvellous in the first half, tired in the second, but was still excellent overall. He just gives us a totally new dimension and we desperately need him to stay healthy in the run in.

Liverpool played very well at times but for some reason in the second half we just couldn’t seem to get a hold of the ball and were guilty of giving the ball away up front. This allowed Blackburn to pump ball after ball into our box, and with the ref giving Reina almost zero protection it was a sound tactic.

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.
