Finally. Finally not just a win but an away win and a pretty convincing one at that. Liverpool were not perfect and at the start of the second half we were under pressure but my goodness we were 10 times better then against Wolves at Anfield. They team actually looked like they wanted to pass the ball up the field rather then boot it up the pitch.

I thought Liverpool were very unlucky not to claim all three points in the derby. Just as we used to do when Rafa was in charge, we played Everton off the pitch in the first half.

It should have been more then one at half-time as Torres was very unlucky when his shot crashed against the post with Howard beaten. The tone was also set when Phil Dowd missed an obvious penalty as Torres was fouled in an off the ball incident. How the ref didn't blow for that I will never understand.

It was an interesting 36 hours from when Roy cancelled his press conference to Kenny walking the troops out at Old Trafford on Sunday. Once I woke up on Thursday morning, after the Blackburn debacle and Roy wasn’t gone, I thought John Henry might make us suffer a little longer. That Blackburn game was a joke as we were completely outplayed during the entire match, except for the first 5 minutes and the last 5 minutes.

I thought Johnson and Gerrard were woeful, everyone gave Gerrard plaudits because he almost dragged us back in the game but in my mind he only played for the last 8 minutes or so. In the current Liverpool set up he is not a central midfielder. He does not tackle, nor track back and only when he pushes forward (see the ball he won for the goal and when he was tripped) is he a player that other teams fear. Rafa knew this… it's time that everyone else figures it out as well, including him!

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.
