Photo quality is terrible but just went to fish this out my draw, it's my autograph from Kenny Dalglish when i met him in the Molineux boardroom last year! :)...
Liverpool Football Club today have parted ways with manager Roy Hodgson. In a move that was predicted to happen sooner rather than later it sees Roy leave on the back of just 7 wins out of 20games played in the league.
With the humiliating defeat to Merseyside rivals Everton, a home defeat to Blackpool and an embarrassing loss at home at the hands of bottom side in the league at the time - Wolverhampton Wanderers, well it was no surprise that Roy's time was coming to an end.
A highlight perhaps of some of his achievements are only really an unbeaten run in the early stages of the Europa League and a home victory over Chelsea. Fair play to Hodgson for his time here and i do wish him all the best because i'm not some sort of bitter fan who will do my utmost to continue a disliking for our ex manager. I wish Roy all th…

Park Seals Win For United

Torres still delivers...

Liverpool suffered defeat at Old Trafford yesterday afternoon despite taking the lead via a Torres goal within the first ten minutes. With the prospect of beating Manchester United for the 4th time in a row, it just wasn't Liverpool's day, and although it was only a narrow victory for the devils, there were not too many positives to take from the 90minutes.

Liverpool made a very lively start to the game, which was what was required if we wanted to get anything out of the fixture. Benitez started a familiar XI with the same back four from Lille, Pepe in goal, Masch and Lucas in midfield, Maxi and Kuyt on the wings and Gerrard sitting off Torres.

No question about it, this was more of a precautionary line up rather than one to take the attack to United but Rafa's original tactics worked as the goal scored in free play came within 5minutes from kick off.

It was Fernando Torres himself who created the build up towards his headed goal. After a great little …

Make Mine A Double

5 minutes added time please Ref... Thank you.

Aside from the Merseyside derby, this is quite easily one of the highlights of a Liverpool fans fixture list. With the bitter rivalry between both ourselves and Manchester United it is always a battle on the pitch, a battle between the managers and a battle between fans.

No side wants to lose, and neither will accept a draw. The bragging rights are what everyone wants, and even more so to a Liverpool side who can rub this victory in the faces of their North West rivals as our slim hopes of silverware are not enough to get on the Mancs wick.

So can Rafa Benitez, the author of "How To Beat Manchester United For Dummies" do the double over them for the second time in his Anfield career?

With Ferguson clearly using an apparent injustice in the Gerrard situation to try to collect some excuses before the game has even begun it is evident that he is fearful of Gerrard, Torres & Co and Rafa's tactics.

With Rooney on great form many ar…
