These last two games have finished so quickly that I barely had time to even open the computer up to write about City. The City game was a bit of a weird one for me. During the game, I just wanted it to end and I kept saying we would take a point from this game. After the game, and after the anxiety had died down, I was quite disappointed in the result.

Well that was very sweet was it not? I'm not sure which picture of the match was the most enjoyable. The sight of Glenn Johnson looking back at his team-mates after the goal, the sight of big John Terry sliding on his bum as the ball rolled into the side netting or perhaps the sight of Torres smiling to his ex-Liverpool team-mates after the game, which must have incensed the Chelsea faithful.

I have to say I was really pleased to see both Maxi and Bells put into the starting 11 at the expense of Downing and Carroll. It seemed Downing knew the chop was coming as he was in the papers a great deal this week talking about how his time had come. Of course, I still think he will be playing more than not, but it was nice to see Kenny go with the players who been playing well when given a chance.

I have read a few match reports after Liverpool's frustrating draw on Saturday and the majority of them say that Andy Carroll did ok besides for missing a sitter in the 7th minute. They said that he put in a decent shift and won some good headers when the ball was in the box, but no one was on hand to score.

Lucas Leiva. Who, besides me and Rafa Benitez, thought that his name would be the first one on the team sheet every week in 2012? Of course, Suarez get the press, and the songs, and rightly so, as he is the kind of player supporters pay to see. At times however, Lucas has me on the edge of my seat, clapping or laughing out loud at his tackling and ability to read the game.

He is simply a joy to watch. Lucas was at his best again during Saturday's late kick off against West Brom. Had Lucas been in the side the previous week against Norwich, we would have won... in my opinion.

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.
