1 Year Old!

I know this site's birthday has been over for a month or so. This blur writer has actually mis-looked it. Nevertheless, I'm glad that this site is still writing and functioning well till today. All thanks to your support and many friends out there who has always been there for AnfieldReds. A big Thank You to you guys and I will continue to update as much news, match reports and rumors about our beloved Liverpool.


Study Break

I would be taking a short break till February due to my upcoming exams. The match reports by the sidebar would still be updated and feel free to check out the scores there. Thank you again for your kind understanding.

As always, I do hope the team will improve and play well. I have faith in Rafa, Gerrard & Co. Come on Reds!

Frustrated By Bruce's Men Again

Liverpool 1 Wigan 1
Torres 49 - Bramble 80

The scoreline speaks for everything. Liverpool 1 Wigan 1 at Anfield. It's a 2 points loss rather than a point gained. It felt like a loss though. With a massive 12 points gap, I can say we are out of the title race. Despite being being named as one of big 4 teams in the English league, every season, with so much promise and hope, it turned out to be the same old story. Disappointing and frustrated.

Failure to score, failure to kill off opponents, and most importantly, failure to win. It has been the problem over the years and today. Rafa Benitez, with his fourth season in charge, still couldn't find the edge of the league in which he does in the Champions League.

Luck does play a part as well. It can be difficult when strange decisions go against your side. However, we have only ourselves to be blamed. Lion's share of possession and big number of shots on target but with no goals are redundant. Championship teams can kill off the game with just a chance on goal. Sadly, I can't see it on our red half.

Home against Wigan. Expected 3 points or I should say it's a must. Anything lesser than that is a total no-no. So many chances on goal, but unable to put the ball into the net. Titus Bramble, of all players, scored a wonder shot into the goal after the defence failed to clear the ball. A mistake and mis-concentration at the back, you have to pay for it. That's football. Small details in the game may cost more than you think.

Liverpool fans and friends always tell me to keep faith in the boys which I eventually did. Sadly, it turned out to be so disheartening. Shaking of heads and pissed faces are common among the Reds now. Somehow, as always, we are used to it. Just hope to see some good performances from the lads and maybe do well for the cup competitions.

At least I know, the thing which comforts me is that we have the best fans in the world. No doubts about it. All we can do now is hope.

Reds Held At The City Of Manchester

Manchester City 0 Liverpool 0

The last game of the year 2007. It was at the City of Manchester. Unbeaten record in their home ground, 9 wins, 1 draw. Sven Goran Eriksson has turned Manchester City into a fortress and a team which is producing results week in week out.

As for Liverpool, we can't afford to drop points. As usual, we are doing the chasing game. Both Manchester United and Arsenal are producing results and opening the gap from the rest.

The game was a tight one as there were not any clear cut chances in the game especially in the first half. Ex- Liverpool player, Dietmar Hamann was superb in the game. I was so glad that he was doing well at Manchester City. He is still one of my favourite players. I'll support him unless he's against Liverpool like last night.

Liverpool dominated the game especially in the second half. They were controlling the pace and possession of the match. Mascherano was superb in the middle. Breaking down every ManCity's attack.

Torres had several chances and almost gave Liverpool the lead. We had the majority of the chances and I believe Reina didn't have much to do in the game except for some kickings. The players were working very hard, trying to get the break through.

Credit to the home side, their defence stood strong. With Hamann protecting the back four, Liverpool just couldn't put the ball into the net. Richard Dunne & Michael Richards, the centre backs for Erikson's side was superb especially Captain Dunne who led by example with a great display of defending.

Liverpool's best chance of the game was cleared off the line by Dunne as well. He kept Torres quiet and the Spanish striker didn't have much space and time on the ball. Although many would be disappointed with a point for the Reds, I believe there are much positives from the match to be taken note of.

Fabio Aurelio and Javier Mascherano were superb the whole game. Alongside with others who worked really hard, it's a pity that we didn't get maximum points. We have to look forward, even the fact that the gap is getting bigger. It's a New Year and we probably need some new signings to improve the squad.

Walk on, with hope in your heart..

You'll Never Walk Alone..
