Well they used to say that the only thing certain in life is Death and Taxes but I think they can add a third pillar, Liverpool beat Everton at Wembly.

Today my post does not focus on football, but rather please take a moment to remember that in 1989 96 supporters of Liverpool Football Club went to watch a match and never came home. My heart goes out to their families. YNWA

Sacking's, 3 points and oh yeh, A semi final with the blues

Blacburn vs Liverpool wasone of the weirdest football games I have a seen in a good long. The game was not really coming to life over the first 15 minutes with both sets of players feeling the game out. Liverpool had provided the game with much live besides for some clever passes by Shelvey and lots of good running by Bellamy. Other then that this had all the makings of a tight 0-0 affair.

If supporters want to understand why we have fallen so abruptly from one of Europe's elite to one of the Premier League’s upper mid table teams just look at our two centre midfielders on display on Saturday.

Both Henderson and Shelvey had decent games, both want the ball and have a good engine on them. One of them, Henderson, is terrified in the final third and the other one is only playing in his 5th or 6th league start. Just a few years ago Liverpool boasted about Mascherano and Alonso and now we have Shelvey and Henderson.

I just couldn't bear to write my thoughts after the Wigan game. We played reasonably well for a period of time during that match, got the equalizer, and a goal that should have stood, which probably would have seen us go on and win. Once the ref disallowed it we lost our way. Then Wigan went ahead and we never really looked liked getting back into the match. We completely lost the fight.

Sunday’s game against Newcastle was on odd one. I thought we played quite well at times, looking more dangerous than our hosts, especially in the first half. Our passing was decent, and Shelvey was very lively. He wanted the ball, got his head up, beat a few people and we looked up for it. Gerrard was not his normal self, however it was great to have Craig Bellamy back in the side. Craig was creating problems but his final pass let him down a few times.

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.
