The Bolton game was sickening. It was just a poor display from everyone except for Reina and Bellemy, The rest of them might not as well have bothered turning up, the worst being Charlie Adam followed by the surprisingly poor Enrique.

I got back late on Friday night after a week in las Vegas. I managed to sneak away for a few hours, leaving the Consumer Electronics Show, to a local pub called the Crown and Anchor who always show the matches. I had a quick pint to settle the nerves and watched Liverpool completely dominate Man City for the opening 20 minutes.

Liverpool were awful against Oldham for the first 40 minutes and it took a tactical change by Kenny Dalglish to swing the balance of the game our way. Once Bellamy moved out to the right wing, with Gerrard just behind Kuyt, Liverpool took control. Bellamy ran riot and had Liverpool been able to convert the chances from his crosses this game could have been seven or eight. He changed the game completely.

It was not a surprise to see Oldham have some chances, and take a shock lead, because our back four had not played in six weeks and Gerrard was not helping out Spearing in defence at all. I thought Martin Kelly had a good game throughout and is really unlucky to find himself on the bench lately.

Martin Skrtel kept the very good Ba in his pocked for the better part of 90 minutes on Friday night and for this he is man of the match. It would be easy to look at the excellent Craig Bellamy as well but Skrtel made the play of tr game at 2-1 to make one of the best goal line clearances I have ever seen. Went it left Ba's foot I couldn't believe we had let Newcastle back in the game. They had only one shot at this point (on target) at that had gone in. Otherwise it was complete dominance by the men in red. When Skrtel somehow cleared the ball I thought maybe we would do enough to actually get three points at home.

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.
