12428 Pre-Norwich Away, banned "are U a fannie" ? mod-ants & My KOP = COP?"

12428...  Pre-Norwich Away, banned again... 
 "are U a fannie" ,
My KOP = COP?" 

I have been adding a few chapters to "ChriStory2" = Now 2 B  Alien..   

The Suns shining and i am having brunch & dinner on the patio now its jumped to about 30 degrees(c) ...

dealing with ants & "fannies"  (see below) as we later today take on Norwich (Away) in the league and only a week away from the cup final

Considering my "conflict" with the "office @ Lfc" ; 
my 'chances" of getting a ticket to the final would be down to mates, but I have been lucky to have been to 7 Red finals.. and if the tickets are taken up by TRUE REdS considering the allocation from the F-ing "FA" ...(there's a lot of comments on the latest "REdNeT" sclog about the FA ...inclined to call it the "FU Cup"... so I will probably watch it with Milos & Jelena(?) &/...or go to "MacREdS" if "downstairs" if not available..

firstly stats & links from the REdnet page on Fb...

official club statistician Ged Rea.> 

Head to head (league only):
At Carrow Road: Liverpool 9 wins, Norwich 7 wins, 7 draws.
Overall: Liverpool 24 wins, Norwich 11 wins, 12 draws.

Earlier this season the sides drew 1-1 at Anfield. Craig Bellamy scored against his former club in first-half stoppage time with Grant Holt equalising on the hour mark. It was Bellamy's first league goal since his summer return to Anfield.

The last meeting between the teams at Carrow Road came in January 2005 with the Reds winning 2-1 thanks to second-half goals from Luis Garcia and John Arne Riise. Only Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard who played that day remain at Anfield.

Liverpool have won five and lost two of the nine Premier League meetings and are unbeaten in the last five clashes, winning four.

The last Liverpool player to score a hat-trick against Norwich was Paul Walsh, who found the net three times in a 6-2 win at Anfield in November 1986.

The only other Liverpool hat-trick was scored by David Fairclough in a 5-3 win at Carrow Road in February 1980 - a game remembered for Justin Fashanu's Goal of the Season effort on Match of the Day.

Liverpool's biggest away victory on this ground came in the 1978-79 season when they won 4-1 - Kenny Dalglish was in the team that day.

The Reds' biggest win over Norwich in all games came in February 1979 when Kenny Dalglish scored twice including the opener in a 6-0 Anfield win.

Liverpool's heaviest defeat at Norwich came in February 1992 when they were beaten 3-0 with Scottish international Robert Fleck scoring twice.

There have been 26 league goals scored in the nine Premier League meetings.

The Reds are looking to record a third successive victory at Norwich. Their last two visits have produced 2-1 wins - they are the only wins in the last seven meetings in East Anglia.

Craig Bellamy began his career with Norwich and made 91 appearances in total between 1997 and 2000, scoring 34 goals.

Glen Johnson made his professional debut against Norwich nine years ago while on loan at Millwall from West Ham. His side lost 3-1 at Carrow Road.

The first goal Jordan Henderson scored in his career came against Norwich while he was on loan at Coventry in a 2-1 win in February 2009.

Liverpool have scored nine times in their last 10 league visits to Carrow Road, with six coming in the last three games.

The last Liverpool player sent off against Norwich was David James on this ground in May 1993.

The Reds could win successive away league games for the first time since November.

Prior to this weekend's fixtures, only Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal have won more away games than Liverpool's seven.

Liverpool have hit the woodwork 30 times in this Premier League season already.   

Should Norwich score two goals they will record 50 in all league fixtures against Liverpool.

City's last win over Liverpool came at Anfield in April 1994 - the last game in front of a standing Kop - with Jeremy Goss scoring the famous goal.

Their last home victory came when David Phillips scored the only goal of the game in May 1993.

Their best finish in the Premier League came in 1992-93 when they were third behind champions Manchester United and only two points behind runners-up Aston Villa.

Earlier this season Norwich set a Premier League record by conceding a penalty in five successive fixtures - their opening games of the campaign.

The only Norwich player to score a hat-trick against the Reds was Terry Allcock, who achieved the feat in a 5-4 defeat at Anfield in January 1962.

Daniel Ayala will be out for the rest of Norwich's campaign. He has played 10 games since his summer move from Liverpool with his last appearance coming in early February.

Zak Whitbread played seven games for Liverpool - all in the cups - during his short Reds career in the middle of the last decade.

Grant Holt has scored 58 goals in 117 league games for Norwich.

Only the bottom three teams (Bolton, Blackburn and Wigan) have conceded more home goals this season than Norwich, who have shipped 27 goals.

City's last home game saw them beaten 6-1 by Manchester City two weeks ago - though it was only 2-1 with 17 minutes to go. It was Norwich's heaviest home defeat since losing 7-1 to Colchester on the opening day of the 2009-10 season. The Colchester manager that day was Paul Lambert. Within 10 days he was appointed Canaries boss.

They have not kept a clean sheet in the last 12 games and only twice in the Premier League this season - in home games against Chelsea and Bolton.

They have won two of their last nine home league games, beating Bolton 2-0 and Wolves 2-1.

Scorers this season (league in brackets):
Liverpool: Suarez 14 (8), Bellamy 9 (6), Gerrard 9 (5), Carroll 8 (4), Maxi 6 (4), Kuyt 5 (2), Skrtel 4 (2), Adam 2 (2), Downing 2 (0), Agger 1 (0), Coates 1 (1), Henderson 1 (1), Johnson 1 (1), Kelly 1 (0), Shelvey 1 (0), own goals 6 (4).

Hiya CrazyHorse, & True REd Mates (ref My KOP blogs) 

I have "spent" enough of my limited time in answering them with the respect that they might be individuals, so now they only get a " group(i)e response 


I live here in part of a family house in a suburb of Podgorica, which has a very hot climate,. I was drinking a cuppa at 09h this morning in 30 degress (c) ..
and there's a few pesky ants thats been "irritating" this mast few days, I had to smile to myself, sort of equated with the mental capacity of the "fannies" who without taking any TIME to understand the reasons, backround, FEELING, or VALIDITY of messages contained in my postings (Open Letter, "are u a Fannie" True REDS v Fannies" Truth V the committee etc) ... they adopt (FSG) "fannie policy" and attack like jackals, if they think I am alone.. (yeah I know ants & jackals..dont really mix as a metaphor, ha ha ) I dont like to kill ants unless theres no other choice, as the ants have (as far as I know) any intended "malice" they are just "working to survive" whereas I dont really mind "puttign down" the " Fannie-club members " who seem to have a maliscious agenda to attack any "depth" of arguement that may take them or others away from a 10 second knee jerk reaction pro-modern policy, I agree with your blogs and the "dumbing down" has truly INFECTED "fannies who came into our club, much the same way as "ants" might infest my kitchen... except I have more respect for ants ;)

p.s. i am certain the ants wont understand the above either,

Marie Buckley > While they say he'd be welcome, he wouldn't welcome it. He has no intention of playing in England.

REdNeT > He didnt tell me that Marie.. but what am certain of that Hodgson & the english media & certain X-players & xenophobic fannies made it clear he wasnt wanted, ....

Pepe Reina is adamant that Liverpool have improved this season.

Steven Gerrard is set to return for Liverpool this weekend after missing our defeat to West Brom through injury.

Please sir, can we have some more land?
With the ongoing issue of controversy over who is redirecting and benefitting from the redevelopment of Liverpool as a city, (about which Squish has written a superb blog - 

so now lets get "personal"......

HUMOUR? - SO, are YOU a "fannie" ??

As recently I agave the name "fannies" to those who claim to follow Lfc - but are really NOT SUPPORTing the "holy Trinity" = which was BONDED during the days of Shanks, its the TRUE REdS "Liverpool way" which binds TEAM Manager; Players & SUPPORTers ....NOT "fannies".. ;)

It may be useful to explain what a "fannie" IS or may be by asking, come on be HONEST, ;)

* Did you start following Lfc because of ONE player or ONE final won by Lfc?

* DO you text your friends during a game, instead of watching

* If your girlfriend (wife?) asks - would you MISS an Lfc match to be with her?

* Do you post negative comments about players on web forums or twitter during the game, or after?

* Do you actually believe Hodgson should ever have been associated with our Club?

* Do you phone in to radio or LfcTV to show how much you know more than Kenny, or Rafa previously?

* You expect our team to play as well as the Lfc team on your video game?

* YOU think that having more money is the only way to make a succesful team/club?

* You would never stand in the rain to watch our Team

* YOU have never played footy and/or wouldn't want to unless it made you rich.

* YOU wouldnt follow the team if it didnt win anything for more than 5 seasons?

* You would not travel to away games, if travel & accomodation was not easily organised?

* YOU would never attend a Hillsborough memorial service.

AT THE STADIUM (IF you are a rare "fannie" that goes to a match..)

* Do you arrive late at your seat, disturbing those that got there on time?

* DO you leave your seat during the game, to get food or drinks? 

* Do you leave the match early if we are losing or to get home early or miss the rush?

* DO YOU BOO our manager or players AT ANY TIME??????

* Do you wear a jesters hat (and are over 18 years of age) ?

* You never sing unless we are winning or at least not losing?

IF YOU answer "YES"  to 1 or more then YOU fit my description of a "FANNIE" ;)


Bpoudyal ; its not about "opinion" you havent got the meaning...its about what makes US DIFFERENT, we are NOT "fannies" and if you are...go elsewhere because "fannies " ruined us in the 1980's  and its happening again... and thats NOT funny!

1. RusRED.. thanks for your comments...but... :P
a) its MY description of what a "fannie" is.. 
b) I dont need to edit my questions, a True RED Supporter concentrates on the game (I am really questioning those who spend all their times txting instead of watching...and probably miss much of the "moves")
c) I express frustration but i DONT INSULT players... I might say I "prefer" X over Y... as my personal choice but i dont "rubbish" players or our Team manager as too many "fannies" do..
d) you really need to read my questions more carefully I am not saying you should stand in the rain, but a true Supporter would...if he/she had to! 
e)  you should never "quantify" YNWA! ...

PLEASE READ the introduction to the questions, and try to understand WHY I write this =  The essence if that I am explaining the difference between the Core Supporters mentality that formed this clubs greatness and many of todays fickle & weak "fannies" if you choose to identify yourself with on or other description, thats your choice however let me make it quite clear that I am DISGUSTED to read what some "fannies" write about (& against) our CLUb; the club that I have given a large part of my life to!


2. daveypreece ...see above , , if I see anything about LIVERPOOL that offends me I will oppose it as I will oppose people who insult our players & (LEGENDARY) manager publicly ..! and if possible I will use humour, IF the " fannies " have some? ;)

3. NeplaliKop - I disagree, if you do every thing you can within your economic lilimtations to SUPPORT the team, then you ARE a SUPPORTer - I never once said you have to be at the stadium, read through it again.. (NOTE i wrote "send texts INSTEAD of watching the game"..obviously IF u have a choice) If u have done everything reasonably possible within your obvious restrictions that great! I have lived abroad half my life and know how difficult it is for "long distance fans" but thats not the message of the above! :) hope u understand now>?

4. EvansPlungePOOL ...???? ha ha ha ...

5. Although there are ISSUES that I am very determined to contest, I advise ALL of us to have a sense of humour, especially at times of adversity..and
by the way this is NOT "a time of adversity" mind u i am not sure if many ppl take any time to "discuss" at the "committee" is not effective either!

? ”He’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy!” ;)

I know many iof you havent got the time or intellect or interest to actually focus on my postings BUT dont "react" before you understand whats written, especialkly if u are ENGLISH you have NO excuses for lazy responses that obviously mean that U havent understood its content..

THIS means YOU "wmraker" (is that mis-spelt?) LMAO

& elzino.. no explnation for your comment, typical of a fannie!

oh and Davey? I thing U are responding to my reply to "evansplungepool"???(pubs etc)?????

As for Kenny, disgusting that U question his status, even before a season is out..

...not Lengendary manager?  er won League and CUP DOUBLE in first season (86) as player-manager then came 2nd , first, 2nd First and cup winners again 89???

@ Class&success , fair comment, but Hodgson was never qualiified enough for LFC manager and appointed by FRAUDS..enough said? no? was highly paid ..what did he try?  to make us go mad?  LMAO!


Tx for the comments clanna, NellyD, kennyirishRED, I dont think you 3 qualify ..

 but.. "wmraker" LMAO  U make this worthwhile, this is MY "revenge" for putting up with all those "fannies"...

who "just dont get it! " 


dasendri1, well if thats not the ONLY reason u also dont qualify,  dont worry though the "suicidal fannies" will be clamouring to make "clever anti-chris" comments!! ;) ha ha ha , this is more fun than even I expected!!! 

12425 +

latest response to comments>

classANDsuccess> thanks for your comments, but Hodgson, was IN NO way qualified, he had NEVER won a MAJOR title, I could manager a top team, but winning trophies is something else...but the most important aspect was that he DISrespected our history, culture, he insulted Supporters and acted in a cringeworthy manner, he insulted Kenny, and blamed Rafa, Hodgson is not a man with dignity enough for our club, (Kenny has been too kind to him)  and please do not forget woy was brought into LFc by Purslow who was a devious money-man out for his own benefit and not ours.. check it out and research the subject properly , please! 

NewScouseWelsh> thanks , so shall we add " I f Lfc arent playing do you follow the blues?  (mind you years ago it wasnt so strange for men to go to alternative home games, but they just loved footy, so maybe thats not the same as  the type U refered to.. 

carraavi23> I wouldnt call U a "fannie" if you have "that feeling" and we both know what I mean, and u dont do the other stuff, mate! ;)

nattaphat666> what i mean is when ppl are constantly texting instead of watching , understand?

Mambya>see my other responses, IMO that comment isnt even worthy of a reply...sad fannie!

Redeyedinoz>please, take a bit more time, and read again, if u are bothered ,its MY interpretation of what a fannie is, not a fanny ;) which I am not against Lol, 
, unless that cap fits you?

luke01234> "this guy?" which guy? guy fawkes?  ha ha ha ...i dont need alchohol, because laughing at all the fannies' comments makes me drunk! 

Sobertini >  the title of this blog sort of helps you, doesnt it?  H U M O U R ?  .... LMAO

Redpiano>ha ha, sometimes I WISH i was 12 years old or younger (but not now, then) so I could live the experiences all over again, but slowly :)

wmraker> are u still commenting? , ha ha ha  ...thanks U really make me smile...

classANDsuccess> U dont know "OUR culture or humour" ?  I travelled 2000 miles back to Lp for the 20th memorial services BECAUSE I am a supporter and apart from the empathy I FEEL (and so should you)  apart from which i have lost people close to me, and identify with the victims & their families, it could have been me, but for "fate"  you see now i have LOST my sense of humour because of your insensitiivity,  because if anything identifies us (off the field) its our hunger for accountability by those who caused the death of 96 brothers & sister REdS... U arent just a fannie u are a fool!

alexjb1989> "fannies" are often DISGUSTING and insulted our club, our players, and our supporters CULTure & origins, and obviously dont like it when they are "challenged"  ... I added some "humour" to avoid getting too "bitter" in my JUSTIFIED condemnation of you dragging our club down, but it seems u fannies still dont get it, thanks also to 

"classANDsuccess" because U are making that an issue which U obviously dont understand.,. some "humour" is required because otherwise the temptation is to crack up with carrying adversity of having to defend the "holy trinity" against idiots & fools & hyprocrites...shame U just dont get it!


classANDsuccess> The aspect of HILLSBOROUGH is important, but there are too many "lightweight" fannies, that shy away from anything deep, sometimes to even get some "dialogue" its necessary to include a DEEP message to people within “humour” many social comedians send out heart-felt messages within their sketches .. some notice, some dont..

beej13> yeah ..didnt include “do U waive plastic flags?”  my fear is that too many fannies join us when chelski & citeh & barca & R. Madrid fail again...!

KennyIrishRed> dont care if u have been drinking...i get what u mean, YNWA!

LiVE R PooL 50 YEARS : update v "woy on SUNday" & random notes

LiVE R PooL 50 YEARS update v "woy on SUNday" & random notes

its 50 years this saturday 21st April that Liverpool won promotion to the top Division of the Football league (now the "Premiereship") 

Bill Shankly took charge at Anfield in December 1959 promotion was his number one goal. Champions of England just 12 years previous, Liverpool had fallen on severely hard times. A rapid return to the top-flight had been expected following relegation in 1954. Instead, the club and its followers were handed a sentence much longer than ever imagined. Shankly came to set them free but was well aware of just what a massive task he had on his hands. By drawing on the passion of the crowd he knew the potential was there for the club to reclaim its place back among the elite. All he had to do was provide them with a team to be proud of.

The new man immediately laid down his blueprint for the future by ridding the payroll of what he perceived to be ‘dead wood’. Within 12 months 24 players had been shown the door. Successive near misses in their quest for the ‘Promised Land’ though was the cue for much stronger action to be taken. ‘Always the bridesmaid, never the bride’ was becoming an all too familiar saying around Anfield at the time.

Tommy Leishman, Gordon Milne and Kevin Lewis had already been recruited to his ranks and together  with the likes of Alan A’Court, Dick White and Jimmy Melia plus a promising crop of youngsters in Gerry Byrne, Ian Callaghan and Roger Hunt the foundations were in place for another attempt to breach the top two in the division.

It was clear for all to see, however, that in order to take that next vital step, more quality reinforcements were needed. Attempts to bring in players of such calibre as Jack Charlton and Dave Mackay had been thwarted by the club’s reluctance to spend big and Shankly was becoming increasingly agitated.

It had long been mooted on the terraces that the club’s directors were seriously lacking in ambition; the belief being that promotion would ultimately involve more expenditure on their part. And while there was no tangible evidence to support this claim the manager was slowly beginning to think along these lines too.

Fortunately, future hopes changed for the better when Eric Sawyer, a good friend of Everton Chairman and Liverpool shareholder John Moores, was co-opted onto the board. Crucially, he shared Shankly’s vision for the club and soon persuaded his fellow directors that the Anfield purse strings needed to be loosened in the pursuit of success.

Scotland forward Ian St John was immediately targeted and a club record £37,500 fee agreed with Motherwell in May 1961. St John became an instant crowd favourite, scoring a hat-trick on his first appearance in a Liverpool Senior Cup Final defeat to Everton. Yet he had to overcome Melwood’s ‘Scouse Mafia’ before being fully accepted by his new team-mates. Arriving with such a huge price tag around his neck meant he was initially treated with some suspicion by Liverpool’s local contingent who far outnumbered his fellow Scots. That was soon put right though, helped by a sweetly delivered left hook on the training pitch and the arrival of a partner in crime.

Having strengthened his forward line, solidity at the back was the next priority and Shankly set his sights on Dundee United defender Ron Yeats. Following protracted negotiations with the Tannadice club a further £22,000 was eventually splashed out. At one point of this drawn-out transfer saga it looked as though Liverpool may miss out their man and when finally given the green light to complete the deal Shankly dashed to Edinburgh in a director’s Rolls Royce to seal the transfer of the man who would become his ‘colossus’.

As usual around Anfield, hopes were high that the coming season would finally be the one. This, of course, was nothing new. But on the eve of the of the 61/62 campaign St John, writing in his new weekly Daily Post column spoke about the possibilities of a Super League sometime in the near future and the importance of Liverpool being part of that. While the Reds were once again fancied to be among the front-runners for promotion, however, they were not considered the favourites. The bookies and pundits declaring that Newcastle United and Sunderland would be the teams to beat – a claim Liverpool soon made a mockery of.

With six games to go just two more points were required to confirm the seemingly inevitable. Southampton were the visitors to Anfield on Saturday 21 April and Liverpudlians prepared to party. The weather was atrocious with heavy rain falling throughout the day and while it restricted the attendance to just over 40,000, when a full-house had been expected, it failed to dampen supporters’ spirits.

St John missed the game through suspension as a result of his sending off a few weeks. Football League rules of the time stipulated that he wasn’t even supposed to be in the ground but the man who had replaced Billy Liddell as the new idol of the Kop, was never going to miss this and sneaked in alongside the fans.

The Saint’s replacement was Ellesmere Port-born Lewis and he duly delivered, scoring twice before half-time to ease any nerves. Although there was no further scoring it was time for the parties to begin and wild celebrations greeted the final whistle. The jubilant crowd invaded the pitch and refused to go home until the victorious players came back out for a final curtain call. When they did many were thrown high into the air, with the previous year’s two pivotal signings Yeats and St John ending up on the Kop.

As the news sunk in that Liverpool were finally back in the Promised Land, congratulatory telegrams poured in from all corners of the country, some from the most unlikely of sources. Matt Busby, a popular Liverpool captain of the pre-War era and now manager of Liverpool’s soon-to-be intense rivals Manchester United, said: ‘A club like Liverpool deserve to be playing in the highest class.’

Even those in the blue half of Merseyside seemed to welcome their return: larger-than-life local MP, and staunch Evertonian, Bessie Braddock, admitted it would be good for the city to have two clubs competing against each other in the top flight again.

Victory over Southampton not only secured promotion but also the title and following the final home game of the season against Charlton Athletic there were more celebrations as the team proudly displayed the first piece of silverware won by the club for 15 years.

It had been a long barren spell but this was to be the start of a glorious new chapter in Liverpool history. Speaking at the time, Bill Shankly described leading Liverpool to promotion as his proudest moment in football and while there was much greater glory to come it must never be forgotten that it all began with the Second Division title-winning season of 61/62. If Liverpool hadn’t have gone up then, maybe the rest wouldn’t have followed.
.... I take issue that ManU have given their followers more joy than I have had SUPPORTing Liverpool teams in the last 10 years!!!  for Crazies like me , its not just about the game or the result, its about being the "holy trinity" the feeling of being ONE with team and manager, win OR lose.. a FEELING that only Rafa & Kenny have brought to me in the last 20 or so years, although I followed the REdS since the days of Shanks..
I have lived abroad half my life and in some ways makes me more appreciative of what is UNIQUE about us,,,and it certainly not only what happens on the field..

Although "come backs" are great to witness, anywhere, The "Champions League" is another of what Rafa calls "the Lie of Football" (or that Footy is a LIe!) how many CHAMPIONS play in that competition.. I think no club should qualify UNLESS they HAVE at least in their history been champions..

anyway, many a time fellow supporters have come back from an "away" (or even a return weekend trip to our home town ; Liverpool) and said " great weekend , or great trip, shame about the game"  ..
i recently brought over 3 young "Balkan REdS" to a game v ar*e-nal (I in edited that because your system is "sensitive"  ;)  ...we lost the game (robbed) and the lads stuff bought at the LFc shop got nicked, BUT we were all agreed that we had a great time and they experienced their dream... these 3 understand what Shanks meant...

very few of the sky-washed "fannies" who only watch on Tv or understand footy from video games etc ..REALLY understand what is SO special Wonderful and Unique...

Soon after I started Supporting the Liverpool team (with Shanks as manager) we went though a period of 6 seasons with no trophies, during that time WE won a "best behaved supporters" trophy from the league..

"Cup Team" ? i dont believe it and dont believe we are anything other than a consistently succesful club thanks to Supporters & (certain) managers & players mentality that has kept us within the TOP EIGHT teams in the League since 50 Years!
why dont you tell the "fannies" that!!

ChriS ;)
Montenegro 12418

So Its bye bye Blues(h*te) last weekend and the cockney rent-boy version in the final, would have prefered to get revenge against the spurs, but although I HATE chelski, their mercenary squad & plastic was nice to see someone deflate the over-exagerated "super-barca" the other night... sick of read the gushing "barca - groupies" ..they only look "special" because NO other Team IS since the REdS of 09...

added random comments...

Our TRUE REdS Supporters Know more about Rafa & Kenny and "Shanks" ' Liverpool way" ..than the people "LfcTV & the official website "mods & journos" !

 I have only disgreed (publicly) with KING Kenny twice in the last 18months.. a) Acquliani should have been kept (especially because of Stevies long injury problems this last year or so..) and b) KD reckons hodgson will get a "warm reception" @ Anfield ..only if "bonfire  night" comes early this year? ha ha ..

but Kenny's right about this.. ..there MUST be a place - whilst retaining Kenny as Manager for Rafa at the club he loves , this man being out of footy is a waste of genius & a loss to OUR club!

and (for Frank c? & Marie B's attention...Universal REdS Internet group) ;)
did u hear that J. Henry got on a flight to Lp this week?,& went to academy yesterday, anything to do with y-our comments maybe,(facebook) ,on Lfctv last night  matt made a discrete comment ; "that shows his commitment to Lfc" ? ha! ...we got them rattled...title it "PR rescue by John W" ? LMAO !!! ...what BS!

get FSG out of OUR club...they wont bring back Rafa, and they only chose Kenny when 10,000 of us didnt show @Anfield. moneyBallS = 200 million (+credit at bank against Anfield/melwood) for a customer base of several million and a global entity with a billion...Lfc directors cheated Supporters out of ownership. its OUR club, if EVER supporters deserved to own their club it is LFC because WE are LIVERPOOL..
p.s. it was Purslow/Hodgson who got rid of youngsters last season (Dalla Valle) so for once be a  journo that tells it loke it WAS/IS! ??

I am constantly amazed at the naive "fannies" who swallow the BS of the inept & mis-guided media & the "agenda" of our enemies, any one who doubts there is BIAS against the people of Liverpool must be blind to the history of the last 40 years .... but there are seemingly many blind /deaf and particularly DUMB sky-washed "fannies" out there!

Disgrace FU the FA!!

Earlier this season Liverpool won 2-0 at the Hawthorns thanks to a ninth-minute penalty from Charlie Adam and an Andy Carroll strike in first-half injury time.

In last season's Anfield meeting the Reds won 1-0 with Fernando Torres scoring the only goal of the game.

Liverpool's biggest ever league win over the Baggies came in April 2003 when they won 6-0 at the Hawthorns.

The Reds' biggest win over Albion at Anfield came in September 1900 and again in September 1935 - both by a 5-0 margin.

In the Premier League the clubs have met 11 times with Liverpool winning 10 and losing one.

Liverpool have scored 28 goals in the 11 Premier League meetings with Michael Owen (4) having scored the most. Steven Gerrard is on three along with Milan Baros and John Arne Riise.

At Anfield the Reds have won all five Premier League clashes scoring 10 without conceding.

Michael Owen's four-goal haul in April 2003 is the last hat-trick scored by a Liverpool player against the Baggies.

The last hat-trick in league meetings at Anfield was scored by Roger Hunt in a 4-1 win in January 1968.

There has been only one goalless draw between the teams on this ground since 1953 - that came in October 1984.

The Reds are looking for a fifth league double over Albion in six Premier League seasons.

Liverpool have failed to score in only one of the last 21 home league games against West Brom.

Should Luis Suarez score he will be the first Liverpool player since Fernando Torres in April 2010 to find the net in four successive home games. 

Jay Spearing could make his 50th appearance for Liverpool in all competitions. His debut came in December 2008 in a Champions League game in Eindhoven.

When Andy Carroll, Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard are on the pitch together one of them scores a goal on average every 57 minutes.

Andy Carroll is looking to score in a third successive game for Liverpool for the first time.

In Pepe Reina's absence the Reds won two and drew one.

Steven Gerrard is one goal away from recording 150 for the club in all competitions. 

Liverpool have scored exactly three goals in each of their last four league victories this season.

The Reds have won 11 out of 12 cup games this season - one victory fewer than their 12 in this league campaign.

West Brom have won six league games away from home this season - more than any other team outside of the top eight.

However, they have picked up one point from the last four games on the road since winning 5-1 at Wolverhampton, a game that saw the end of Mick McCarthy's reign as Wolves boss.

Their other away wins have come at Norwich (1-0), Aston Villa (2-1), Blackburn (2-1), Newcastle (3-2) and Stoke (2-1).

They have won two of their last seven league games home and away - but both have come in the last three matches.

They have scored one goal in the last four away games - Paul Scharner finding the net at Wigan.

The Baggies' only Premier League win over Liverpool came in April 2011 when Chris Brunt scored twice in their 2-1 victory. They have lost the other 10.

They are the only goals that Albion have scored against the Reds in 11 Premier League meetings.

Albion have not won in the last 21 games at Anfield scoring just seven times in a sequence spanning 45 years.

Roy Hodgson was in charge of Liverpool for 191 days - a reign which took in 31 games of which the Reds won 13. In the Premier League he presided over seven wins in his 20 games.

His first league victory as Reds boss came against Albion at Anfield in August 2010.

He has been in charge of Albion for 46 league games winning 17 and drawing 11. He has won twice against Liverpool in nine meetings as a manager.

The Baggies finished last season with their best Premier League finish (11th) - this after being 17th when Roy Hodgson took over in February.

Last season Chris Brunt became only the third player to score two penalties in a Premier League game against the Reds. The others were Matt Le Tissier (Southampton) in February 1994 and Ruud Van Nistelrooy at Old Trafford in April 2003.

Albion's biggest win at Anfield came in October 1951 when they won 5-2 with Frank Griffin scoring twice.

The Baggies' last win at Anfield was 45 years ago on Sunday when they won 1-0 with the goal coming from Jeff Astle.

The only West Brom hat-tricks against Liverpool were scored by Billy Richardson in 1936 and 1938.

Should Albion score twice they will record 50 in league games at Anfield.

Somen Tchoyi made his Baggies debut in this fixture last season.  

Ben Foster is Albion's sole league ever-present this season. He has saved two penalties - from Tottenham's Emmanuel Adebayor (though he did score the rebound) and Jon Walters of Stoke.

During the 2010-11 league campaign West Brom were the only team to leave Old Trafford undefeated after securing a 2-2 draw.

They have drawn one and lost 13 of the last 14 visits and have suffered defeat in each of the last six Anfield meetings.

They have managed just one goal in the last 11 visits - Garth Crooks finding the net in a 4-1 defeat in 1985. England World Cup winner Nobby Stiles was Albion manager that day.

Referee Neil Swarbrick takes charge of Liverpool for the first time ever in the Premier League. His other game in charge of the Reds was their 5-1 FA Cup win over Oldham back in January.
