Thanks to @abelestefanero for submitting this, I personally think it is ugly.
Call me old fashions but I miss the good old panels.
Nice to be back in winning form and keeping clean sheets, this victory helps boost our confidence and lifts us up to the 5th position in the league table.
Javier Mascherano claimed the first goal after a deflection, the blues did have a few good chances and had two goals ruled-out due to clear offsides in the first half.
My man of the match has to be Pepe Reina who made a few great saves and kept the clean sheet.
We did look shaky at times however the introduction of Yossi Benayoun in the 2nd half put us back in control of the game and Dirk Kuyt made it 2-0 in the final ten minutes.
It was obvious that many of our players who were injured are still not at 100% fitness especially the way Stevie G. was pretty anonymous for most of the game. We now have six days until our next game with Blackburn this will give our players some time to rest.
Torres is out of the derby, this is no surprise as almost everyone expected it, here is the full lineup.
Starting XI : Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Insua, Mascherano, Lucas, Kuyt, Gerrard, Aurelio, Ngog
Subs : Cavalieri, Aquilani, Riera, Benayoun, Kyrgiakos, El Zhar, Skrtel
Kick off today is at 1:30PM (UK Time), Come on Reds give us a nice comfortable victory, we deserve it.

(Why do they want us to share a stadium? There are so many teams in London and no one is proposing for any of them to share? How about if Milwall & West Ham shared a stadium?)

(If this is true than probably Rafa burned that bridge forever, so no matter what the News-Media says I do not think Rafa will ever go to Real)
Jamie Redknapp is being linked with Portsmouth as Grant’s assistant.
(That will be interesting, they hate his dad now that he abandoned them)
And finally a rumour going around that Eric Cantona is wanted by Bath.
