Can Roy Hodgson Continue To Roll Back The Years For Fulham?

With a trip to Craven Cottage tomorrow Liverpool face a new look Fulham. After the success of 7th place last year when Roy Hodgson helped guide the cottagers to their best finish in the Premier League it appears the years have truly rolled back at Fulham.After just a season before finding themselves in a fierce relegation battle and only surviving on a better goal difference Hodgson is clearly doing a wonderful job in London.

The last time Fulham beat us at Craven Cottage was in 2007. Last season Liverpool managed a 0-0 draw and a 1-0 win over Fulham in the two Premier League fixtures. This season we are not only looking to prevent those silly draws but we are also in a position where we almost have to win.After beating Manchester United on the weekend and again shunning all the criticism and people who persist to write us off so early in the season it is key that we collect 3 points. The win over Manchester United will be forgotten if we do not capitalize against Fulham, there is no p…

Match Preview - Chelsea V Liverpool

It's time to gather the stats together again, head to head, goals scored, last time out etc etc. Chelsea as we all know are going to be without the suspended Petr Cech for Sunday's match and it is most likely that Hilario will start in his place. In terms of other restrictions the Blues only have Alex and Mikel as doubts. Liverpool have Aquilani out (still sorting out this ankle injury) and with Mascherano having a hamstring problem he is not an option along with Daniel Agger who is still unavailable.

Torres is the best goal threat from both teams, two goals in front of DidhishairDrogba. Fernando Torres also goes into this game on the hunt to claim the credit of reaching 50 goals quicker than anyone in the clubs history.He needs 4 goals in a massive 15 games, how's about that for an incentive?

Chelsea have not managed to get on the score card in the past three league matches with Liverpool which some may find quite surprising. Chelsea go into this match on the back of a leag…

Liverpool V Leeds Match Preview

So Liverpool's Carling Cup campaign gets underway tomorrow with a trip to Yorkshire. The last time the two teams met was in 2004 a game which ended in a stalemate (2-2). Leeds are currently going well in League One, with their main goalscoring threat a certain Jermaine Beckford, widely praised in the footballing world at the moment.

Word about town today is that Rafa will be resting Gerrard & Torres. Not surprising though, i also would take a punt that Reina will take the day off too as Cavalieri featured alot in last season's league cup campaign. It will be interesting to see if Jay Spearing is given the opportunity to shine, if there's going to be a chance to do so this is it i would imagine.

Leeds last win against Liverpool at Elland Road was in 2000 when they beat the Red's 4-3, Viduka scoring the quartet of goals.

Liverpool are unbeaten in the last 6 games with Leeds United.

The last time the two teams met in the League Cup was in 1972.

Leeds have one of the best …

Liverpool V West Ham - Time For Those Football Stats

So today is destination West Ham folks, the trip down South to Upton Park. Usually a fine place for success but lets just have a look back at some of the previous clashes with the Hammers in years gone by.

Last time out was May 2009 with the reds scoring 3 goals, 2 of which came from Steven Gerrard. West Ham unable to get on the score sheet this time around.

January 2008 was not such a good result, losing 1-0 to West Ham on the day albeit to an injury time penalty.

In 2007 the scoreline at Upton park read 2-1, Peter Crouch securing the win that time.

April 2006 was much of the same with the lads again beating West Ham 2-1.

And in February 2003 Liverpool again winning 3-0 at Upton Park, with a certain Norwegian setting up two fantastic goals.
Not a bad run when you look at it, the Red's achieving those goals and those crucial points on the majority of occasions. Now we know how we've fared it's time for some of those little facts you may have forgot, or just didn't know:
