No-one's gonna miss that chin...

Liverpool's second pre season friendly ended in a 1-0 loss on Saturday. It was another typical pre season display for another unfamilar Liverpool set up but again, many positives from players such as Amoo, Kelly and David N'Gog could be taken from the match in Germany.

Milan Jovanovic also got his chance to shine after he was selected to feature by Roy Hodgson, his first minutes in a Liverpool shirt were somewhat promising and we can expect to see much more from the Serbian in the coming games i should imagine.

Kaiserslautern fought a hard game and it was Tobias Sippel who got them thier perhaps deserved winner. With our first competitive game up next against FC Rabotnicki in the Europa League, the lads fielded will look to add some improvement to fine tweak their encouraging display.

In other news, camp unsettler and lover of talking Mr. Albert Riera has sealed a move from Liverpool to Olympiakos. I was a big fan of Riera when he showed up at Anfield, some fans weren't convinced but i always thought he was vital to that missing width we seemed to have in the season before he showed up. I was always first to try to defend him.

However after his "sinking ship" comments at exactly the wrong time, his selfish attitude along with the unveiling of that academy incident, i could no longer support him. I still feel he's a good player but we are a lot better off without him now then we would be with him.

I'll be decent enough to wish him good luck, but most of me still hopes he regrets what he did in his time at Liverpool and i hope he realises what he's passed up.

To end on, in case you aren't aware, supporters union Spirit Of Shankly are holding a campaign on their website entitled "Tom & George Not Welcome Anywhere". The idea is super simple and they already have a lot of backing but after submitting my own photo yesterday i think it's about time i let you lot know about it.

I realise i have a wide variety of readers, Liverpool fans from all over the world, i can tell this just from looking at my flag counter, so what better way to show your disgust at what those two parasites are doing to our club than simply taking a photograph of yourself with this poster in the place you live.

Some of you may be like me and live in the most little known and un exotic of places, whereas others may live in some beautful countries, point is, it doesn't matter, the idea is to show that Tom and George are not wanted anywhere... In Liverpool, in Birmingham, London, Texas, South Korea, New Zealand... anywhere.
