It has taken me just over 24 hours to calm down enough to write this little blog. 12 kids between the ages of 4-6 had the unfortunate experience to have me as their baseball coach 2 hours after this match. It's safe to say the red mist had fully descended and those little guys did their fair share of running last night. Dinner was forced down and frankly I just couldn't wait to get to bed such was the mood that LFC's collapse had put me in.

It was not a great game of football on Sunday but Liverpool did enough to win the match by taking their chances. We started quite brightly in this match but Stoke did so as well. At times they were passing the ball quite quickly and looked dangerous.

After the depressing performance at Sunderland, where "Liverpool did not turn up" according to our captain this was exactly the tonic the players, staff and supporters needed. To win any game 3-0 at home was a welcome sight but to batter our neighbors from start to finish, capped up by a fantastic hatrick by one of our greatest ever players made it even sweeter.

I watched the game against Sunderland on Saturday in utter disbelief. I just couldn't get my head around the fact that Liverpool, who passed and moved so well against Arsenal 7 days before, could come out and lose to Black Cats. We had zero energy, zero ideas and zero chances.

Liverpool's 2-1 loss to Arsenal at Anfield had to be the most disappointing game of the season. To play like we did at Bolton and get beat is deserved. To play like we did on Saturday and lose proves that football is a funny old game.

Honestly I can't remember the last time we have played so well against Arsenal. Normally they always have lots of chances against us and we seem to chase the game. However, in this match we completely dominated from start to finish. I didn't even realize Van Persie or Yossi were even playing until about the 15th minute.

Liverpool were camped out in Arsenal’s half and we are such a better side when Carroll doesn't play. Our passing is quicker, shorter and along the ground. The big man has been better recently and has shown signs of working harder for the team but I'm just not sure he will ever be a first-team regular. Kuyt and Suarez were unplayable at times with Henderson having a fantastic bounce-back game after his disappointing League Cup final performance.

About
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.
