I watched Reds absolutely hammer norwich Saturday evening, hitting the post & crossbar 3 times, their goalie was great, more than 20 shots, but like at stoke earlier this season, no "luck" but we have to make it, and TAKE our chances…the inevitable happened and in one of the few attacks norwich equalised, and despite having so much of the ball , we missed too many chances
….after I was supposed to meet several people at "West" ...then bring them back to Tolosi for a "warming" party…
2 of my "guests" at least told me they weren't well enough, KJ & horror came (there) later, and they joined me @ T55 …but 3 who didn’t even bother to tell em they werent coming, were told that I don’t want to see them again.. They arent friends if they cant be bothered, and I don’t want them in my life..its not just in MNE but everywhere, people are far too "cool" are CARE-LESS!
My parties are getting smaller ! ;) now I am just really waiting for my spaceship to come back & pick me up from this mad planet take me to somewhere loving and warm..
The weekend ended better, we played a very competitive 6-a-side match and the mancs got battered 1-6 at old toilet..,.if only we had taken a few of our chances in the games v sunderland, stoke, manure and norwich , WE would be top of the league!!!

Jordan: Why I stay late
21st Oct 2011 - Latest News
Jordan Henderson has revealed how he stays late after training because he wants to start climbing the scoring charts.
The 21-year-old has fired one goal from his eight Liverpool appearances so far having found the net at the Anfield Road End against Bolton.
He has also scored twice for England U21s this term, but is far from content with these stats. "I like to stay after training and do some finishing and other things that I think I need to work on," he told Liverpoolfc.tv. "Finishing and goalscoring is a big part of football so I've been trying to work on that for quite a lot of months now. Even when I was at Sunderland I was doing that.
"I've scored a couple this season and I would like a lot more. "I can't get too focused on that, I need to concentrate on other parts of my game that I need to improve on, but goalscoring and getting in certain positions is definitely one thing I need to get better at."
Henderson has largely featured on the right of midfield since his summer transfer from the Stadium of Light, though his cameo in the middle against Manchester United caught the eye.He also plays in the centre when captaining England U21s under the stewardship of Stuart Pearce.
But while central midfield is his natural position, our new No.14 isn't the type to go knocking on the manager's door.
He said: "I am not really fussed about where I play, I just want to play football and wherever I'm put I'll play. But obviously I like to play in the middle."
As well as being impressed with his talents on the playing field, Liverpool scouts also admired Henderson's application and attitude off the pitch prior to his move west. Despite an unforgettable year which has seen him captain his country and move to one of football's most famous clubs, the midfielder knows he is not the finished article. "I want to become a much better player, improve every day, keep working hard and learn from the players around me, and hopefully become a very successful player for Liverpool and also my country," he said.
"I'm very appreciative of where I am today, but I still want more, I still want to go forward. There are a lot more things I want to achieve. I don't get carried away with it but also I want to strive for more and keep that hunger going." While Henderson often stays late at Melwood to improve his game, away from the pitch his lifestyle is a lot more relaxed. "I haven't really been out (in Liverpool) yet, the nightlife, so I haven't seen that side of it," he said. "There is a right place and time to go out with your friends of a night. It's important to do that as a team to bond, but I just tend to relax and watch telly most of the time. "I've been for food and maybe the cinema now and again. It's a great city and I look forward to living here for a while."
Meanwhile, following Pearce's appointment as manager of Great Britain's 2012 Olympic football team, Henderson has revealed his ambition to participate in the London games. The squad has to be made up of largely U23 players from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. "You never know, and if I'm picked I'd love to go, but I can't be looking that far ahead at the moment," he said. "I need to concentrate on my football, keep improving and whatever happens happens. "It would be huge to do it in your own country and it'd be a big honour for anyone who goes to that tournament. I'm sure a lot of people will want to go."
Three points against Norwich would see Liverpool put further pressure on the sides currently occupying the top four positions. Molby expects a tough encounter against the Barclays Premier League newcomers but feels the Reds must pick up a victory if they have serious intentions of returning to the Champions League next season. "We need to get back in the top four as quickly as possible," he said. "If we're serious about achieving that we have to win games like tomorrow's home clash with Norwich City. "I've been impressed by what I've seen of Norwich so far this season
"When they came up, you looked at the squad and thought it smelt a bit like the Championship. But they've managed to improve both individually and as a team. "They attempt to play a similar type of game to Liverpool with a lot of quick passing. They've got good width in Elliott Bennett, who they signed from Brighton, and they aren't scared of anyone. They showed that recently at Old Trafford when they carved United apart on a number of occasions."

Lucas's pride at skipper role
19th Oct 2011 - Latest News
Lucas Leiva revealed his joy at captaining Liverpool in Tuesday's friendly with Rangers - and remained adamant there are positives to be taken from the trip to Ibrox despite a 1-0 defeat. Lee McCulloch netted the only goal of the game after 20 minutes, but the Reds were able to give run outs to fit-again trio Glen Johnson, Daniel Agger and Fabio Aurelio. It was also a night to remember for Lucas, who skippered Liverpool from the start of the contest for the first time in his Anfield career. He told Liverpoolfc.tv: "It was special for me. I am still young and haven't had the chance to be a captain.
"Of course I would have liked another result to have a better record, but I am really proud to have been the captain. It means a lot to me at such a big club like Liverpool." He added: "We are disappointed with the result, of course. We wanted to win. Lucas on captaining the side in Glasgow
"But we saw a few players coming back from injury like Fabio, Glen and Agger. They are getting their fitness back so it was important for this game. Now we ill concentrate on the Barclays Premier League." Liverpool return to action on Saturday when they play host to Norwich City at Anfield - though Lucas will be forced to watch from the sidelines due to suspension. Nonetheless, he's confident the Reds can build on their impressive showing against Manchester United last weekend and clinch three points. "Unfortunately I will be out of the game because I am suspended, but I will be cheering the players on," he said. "I think we deserved to win against Manchester United. "We played really well and now we have to take the positives into the next game, hopefully get the three points and be closer to the top four."
He continued: "I think there is more to come (from Liverpool). There are a lot of new players that came in over the summer and it always takes time to settle and build an understanding between the players. "I think there is a lot to come and hopefully it will be a successful season for us."

Kenny issues Suarez support (20th Oct 2011 - Latest News)
Kenny Dalglish today insisted that Luis Suarez has the full support of everyone at Liverpool Football Club following allegations made in the aftermath of last weekend's clash with Manchester United. Dalglish told reporters at Melwood: "The only thing we'll say, and then that is it put to bed, is that this Football club and everyone at the club is totally and utterly behind Luis Suarez. "There was an allegation after the game about him diving all over the place and then there was an allegation from Patrice Evra. "Obviously the two things are quite emotive, but we fully support the wee man in both things and everyone at the club does. "I think the football club came out at the start of the week and made our position known - and apart from what I've said there, we won't be adding to it.
"We fully look forward to a complete, transparent report from the FA and look forward to co-operating 100 per cent fully with what is done."
Liverpool have confirmed Nathan Eccleston has joined Rochdale on loan.
The striker has signed a month-long deal with the League One side. Eccleston has made nine appearances for Liverpool's first team, with the last coming in a goalless Europa League draw with FC Utrecht at Anfield in December 2010.
Kenny Dalglish today hailed the 'fantastic' contribution of Lucas Leiva - but remains confident Liverpool will cope without the midfielder against Norwich City on Saturday. The Brazilian has earned rave reviews as one of the Reds' star performers so far this term but misses the visit of the Canaries due to suspension.
Dalglish accepts it is a blow to lose the No. 21 but feels the quality of his squad means he has a variety of replacements at his disposal. Dalglish told reporters: "We know Lucas can't play. He's suspended but we'll just have to cover it as best as we can. "He's been fantastic this season for us. On Saturday he was a wee bit unfortunate that I decided to play him after the journey he'd had. It maybe took more out of him than I thought. He's been fantastic for us and it will be a miss, but he'll serve his game and it's up to us to overcome that.
"At the end of the day that's what you have a strong squad for - to overcome injuries and suspensions. This is the first suspension of the season so we have to cover it. "We have to make sure that, although we are saying he is a loss before the game, we are not saying the same thing afterwards." He added: "I can only comment on what he's done since I came in and since then he's been as good as anyone we've had. "He's done his job fantastically well. He's a really good professional and a good guy in and around the place. "We are delighted with the rewards he is getting on the pitch and if the fans can recognise what he is doing then that is obviously helpful to him." Liverpool's performance in last week's 1-1 draw against Manchester United left many pundits suggesting they were unlucky not to take all three points.
Dalglish acknowledges there were many positives to be taken from the encounter and is hopeful his side can now build upon it in the weeks ahead. "We have our own targets to aim for," he said. "We want to get as high up as we possibly can and we can only do that by producing performances on the pitch. Last week's was certainly encouraging. "We've been pleased by a lot of things we've done this season. We'll just keep pushing forward. We are where we are because of the games that we have played and the points we've gained. "Like everyone else, even if you are at the top of the league you would hope for more points. We are no different to anyone else. We'd love to have more points for the effort we have put in this season, but we will just have to get on with it."
The Reds entertain newly-promoted Norwich on Saturday hoping to get back to winning ways and increase pressure on the sides above them. However, Dalglish has urged his players not to underestimate the threat of the Canaries, who have given a good account of themselves already this season. "I don't know what other people expect, but I know what we do. We expect as difficult a game against Norwich as Manchester United gave us last week," he said. "Paul Lambert has done a fantastic job there. They are sitting there pretty comfortable in the league in ninth position. They went to Old Trafford and played very well. I'm sure they will be looking forward to coming here and doing equally well. "They've done brilliantly."
Asked if he felt Norwich would treat the game like a cup final, Dalglish said: "I don't think anyone has come here and not thought it was like a cup final. So it's no different for us. "The players and personnel may be new but for us it's straight forward. We'll give them every bit as much respect as we did against Manchester United or Everton the week before. We will never be disrespectful and underestimate the opposition. That includes Norwich and anyone else that we have to play. "I know Paul from my time at Celtic and I have huge respect for him as a footballer and also as a manager." Liverpool have already played four league games at Anfield this season but have yet to secure a shut-out. The boss admits it would be nice to banish that statistic against the East Anglian outfit but remains adamant that victory will always be the priority.
"It was obviously an aim for us to achieve previously," he said. "If you don't lose any, you'll get at least a point from the game. "But we are happy with most of the things we have done. We just have to keep pushing on. As long as we score more than we have against us, we'll win more games than we'll lose. "We just have to keep going. The boys are disappointed that we didn't get the three points last week. Maybe that will carry into Saturday and we can try to get three points there." Dalglish was also quizzed about quotes attributed to Sir Oliver Popplewell, a former judge who oversaw two inquiries into the Bradford fire disaster. "I don't think he should interfere," said Dalglish.
"It's not comparable. Each one is equally important to the people who have been involved in it, as the other. "I don't know who he is, or what he said, but certainly the Hillsborough families have been hugely complimented on their dignity and the way they have gone about what they want to achieve. If two people have a different opinion then it isn't to say what is right or wrong, you just do what suits yourself best. "Our families have been tremendously dignified in their approach and the way they have gone about it. And after 22 years they have been very, very patient and the least they deserve is some comfort." Dalglish was also asked about the form of Jordan Henderson who produced a bright cameo as a substitute in the draw with Man United last week. He said: "He'll be here for a long, long time and he's going to be a tremendous asset for us. He's got patience too.
"He's a good player who knows what is required. He's a young boy who has come down from Sunderland and is starting to settle in really well now. "He'll be a great asset for the football club in the years ahead. "He's another option for us in midfield this weekend. I've just got to make the right decision."
He added: "I don't know his best position yet, but I know his best club and that's this one. We just want him to play and enjoy playing. He's a talented footballer with a great future in front of him. We are just delighted he chose to come here."

Steve Clarke says the competition between Glen Johnson, Martin Kelly and Jon Flanagan for position is great for the club. England right-back Johnson is now fit following a spate of injuries but knows England U21 regular Kelly has been excellent in his absence. And seniority does not guarantee a place on the teamsheet, according to Clarke. "I don't think Glen would expect that and I don't think anybody would expect that," he told Liverpoolfc.tv.
"Martin has been in there for most of the season and has done a really good job. Glen knows he'll have to compete for that position and that's what you want, you want competition for every position on the pitch." While Kelly and Johnson are the most senior players battling for a slot on the right side of Kenny Dalglish's defence, it should not be forgotten that 18-year-old Flanagan did a sterling job in that position at the end of last season. The Academy product is also an England U21 regular and was handed a new contract by the club this summer.
Clarke's message to him is: "Just keep going, keep doing what you're doing, and make the most of the opportunities that come your way. "Flanno has been excellent, he did a terrific job for the team at the end of last season, no one's forgotten that. He's a young boy and has plenty of time in front of him. His time will come."
Clarke often played at full-back himself during a playing career which included 421 appearances for Chelsea, where he won the FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup. He thinks the role has changed over the years.
"There has always been the capability to attack as a full-back, but in the modern game they're probably being used a little bit more than they were in my time when you were expected to do your defensive duties first. "You're still expected to do the defensive duties but anything they can give you going forward is a bonus."
Meanwhile, Dirk Kuyt could play his 250th game for Liverpool against Norwich today. Even at 31, the Dutch international is still one of the hardest working players in English football, and Clarke said: "He brings boundless energy and enthusiasm, and vital goals. "Those have been his attributes as far back as I can remember him being here at Liverpool. "Anyone looking at Dirk Kuyt would say that's the kind of effort and application you have to put into your team week in, week out, and if you can do that as a young player, all you have to work on after that is your qualities."
"IF any fool out there believes that power should be given to "government" …you should know that since the romans tricked their own people 500 years BC into war, through Hitlers troops provoking WW2 in 1939, leaders & their "media" have lied to you, the people..not least the greatest reason NEVER to give the USA power is within the scripts of the film "J.F.K" (it will be another 12 years before the "truth" is known , if ever) they killed "the dream" along with Bobby & Martin in the 60's ..and our own Hillsborough Justice campaign which Thatcher & the UK govt. will continue to deny, is enough reason (never mind an "illegal" invasion of Baghdad) to question any and ALL government officials each and every day, in EVERY way, because when even a small creative project (my "LetS B FAIR" initiative, MNE) can be shut down, my blogs, emails, websites & even "facebook" be blocked…then wHO will ever stand up and shout "enough" …do you want a world for ALL the people, by the people, or do you continue to accept open or "secret" FASCISM in y-out daily lives?
