Liverpool are into the last 16 of the Europa Cup in a hard earned victory at Anfield. The 6pm local kick off time was a weird one for me, watching Liverpool live at 10am was odd but it worked out ok.
It was great to see Anfield packed and for once the TV producers actually allowed the atmosphere to build by showing some of the pre-game songs and chants from the ground

Wigan are baffling to me. I just don't see how a team with that much pace and confidence on the ball can be in the Premier League drop zone. I was actually at the game in person at Wigan and they deserved their draw on that day. As a matter of fact they were the better team and should have won. Liverpool found the home fixture a very hard game but with a little bit of luck over injuries and with a linesman paying attention Liverpool would have captured all three points. We greatly missed both Agger and Gerrard and sick Meireles did not help matters as Liverpool were forced into making too many changes.

Liverpool were simply marvellous at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. We actually out fought Chelsea and out matched them tactically. I'm not sure if Carlo Ancelotti or Roman Abramovich decided to go with three strikers up front but in hindsight it was a mistake.

Liverpool's 3-5-2 formation dominated Chelsea's midfield and we had all the better chances in the match. Of course Chelsea did have one decent penalty shout turned down at the death but it would have been very harsh on this Liverpool side who should have been two up at this point.

Well if you came to read this piece hoping that I was going to be ripping into Torres for leaving Liverpool you might as well stop reading. If you were one of the ones who burned his shirt (probably only four people who did this but of course the cameras love images like that) you should be ashamed of yourself.

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.
