Thanks to Charlton Xerri who sent me the following pictures from the Official Liverpool Supporters Club in Gozo, Malta.
Pretty Amazing they have built a replica of the Shankly Gates at their headquarters in Xewkija.
I can’t say how proud they have made me :-)
Check out their Facebook page, here…
Following a whole week of rest we host Sparta Prague in the second leg of the Europa League’s round of the 32. The first leg of the fixture ended in a 0-0 stalemate in Prague so the winner tomorrow will qualify for the round of 16.
Luis Suarez can not feature because he is cup-tied while Andy Carroll is still injured. Steven Gerrard will most likely sit out as he hasn’t totally recovered from the injury he received at the hands of Chelsea. Daniel Agger is looking likely to return after missing the last two games.
Predicted Starting XI:
Pepe Reina, Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Jamie Carragher, Glen Johnson, Martin Kelly, Lucas Leiva, Raul Meireles, Maxi Rodriguez, Dirk Kuyt, David Ngog
Kick off is at 6PM GMT

Thanks to @resapradana for sending this picture of what appears to be a leaked picture of Liverpool’s away kit for the 2011/12 season. The blue colour is concerning, I am sure that most Reds like me will be upset to have our team play in what looks like a Chelsea kit.

Kenny Dalglish has sparked a sensational revival at Liverpool, suddenly the dressing room and the training ground seems a nice place to be, Dalglish despite only being in charge of the club for a short time has re-united the players and the players are now playing the type of football that the Liverpool supporters want to see. So how has Dalglish done it? He has established more of a link between the fans and the players unlike his predecessor Roy Hodgson, He has very much started a pass and move philosophy which has created a lot more chances and meant that players who weren’t playing to their best of their ability before Dalglish are now getting on the score sheet such as Raul Meireles. Dalglish has brought in two class strikers in Suarez and Carroll, I do however believe that 35 million deal for Carroll was a bit too excessive however when you consider that we sold Torres for 50 million and in my opinion Carroll has the potential to be one of the best strikers in the world as he is only young and has a long career ahead of him.
When Dalglish took over Liverpool were in the bottom half of the league and the supporters could only dream of securing a champions league place, but now a few months later it really is a possibility as Liverpool sit in 6th place and some if the teams in front of us are struggling like Chelsea and tottenham and we have to play United, City and Arsenal so we could end up finishing in 4th place at the end of the season.
