Sparta Prague, Stevie & "Scouse Scum"

Well folks, just a quick update on the latest LFC news. I'm sure you've all already been frantically tweeting and Sky Sports News watching today in order to find out who Liverpool's next opponents would be in the Europa League and we've landed ourselves with an away trip to Prague.
Sparta Prague in all honesty are probably one of the better few teams in the competition but we could have had a lot worse. The second leg being at home provides some confidence at least, so i'm sure you're all with me in looking forward to our next stage of the competition we have not yet lost in.
In other news, Captain Steven Gerrard was looking strong in training today. The pictures released by www.liverpoolfc.tv show that the number 8 is recovering well and also support the idea that our star man will be back to face Fulham tomorrow. I hope he is because we could do with that spark.

An almost fully fit Blackpool side missing only Alex Baptiste will be well up for this kind of game, along with the character and passion of manager Ian Holloway, if they can get an early goal who knows.
Of course we shouldn't and can't forget the mauling Blackpool received from title challengers Chelsea in a game they lost 4-0. Chelsea back in 08/09 were a team we were fighting with, now …

Reina Prevents Reds Defeat

Yer wha?! I can't hear yer!
It was a tough game yesterday for Liverpool and to be honest by the end of the 90minutes it could have been a less flattering scoreline. Despite the best efforts from the Reds it was the heroics of Pepe Reina that kept our dignity and in turn the point.
I did say in my match preview that this away fixture wouldn't be a walk in the park but analyzing Liverpool's chances/play it wasn't particularly fantastic.
Roy decided to go with Maxi Rodriguez in place of the injured Dirk Kuyt which i was quite happy to see. The rest of midfield was made up of Lucas, Poulsen and Jovanovic. Gerrard sat behind Torres, Reina in goal and a back four of new man Konchesky along with Carragher, Skrtel and Glen Johnson.
It was a match built up to be entertaining but one that unfortunately failed to meet expectations. Birmingham started the game well and were strong in attack, Liverpool appeared caught off guard, they knew the Blues would come at them but their rate of …
