its all about Babel , Leto , and Kewell on the left...

and if Luis Fabiano gets back from his injury, Riise might get a shot at playing on the left.

all depends on how the players perform... and what formation rafa plays.

my guess is ... this is harry's year... last shot.

PostSubject: LIVERPOOL V CHELSEA: STAT ATTACK   Sat Aug 18, 2007 6:24 am

All the relevant stats, facts and figures ahead of Liverpool's first
Barclays Premier League home game of the 2007/2008 season against
Chelsea with official LFC statistician Ged Rea.

LIVERPOOL v CHELSEA

Head to Head: (League only).


At Anfield: Liverpool 43 wins, 13 draws, Chelsea 8 wins.
Overall: Liverpool 58 wins, 26 draws, Chelsea 44 wins.
Last season the Reds won here 2-0. The game was won in the opening 18 minutes thanks to goals from Dirk Kuyt and Jermaine Pennant (his first for the club). The league game here last January was the 100th in the Premiership for both Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho.
The last hat-trick scored by a Liverpool player against Chelsea in
League came from Patrik Berger in October 1997 on this ground.
Chelsea's last was scored by George Mills in August 1937 at Stamford
Bridge. Berger is one of four Liverpool hat-trick scorers in the league
against the Londoners. The others were James Stewart in 1910, Fred
Pagnam (1915) and Gordon Hodgson (1930).
Liverpool became the fourth club after Manchester United, Arsenal
and Chelsea to reach 1,000 points in the Premiership with last
Saturday’s win at Aston Villa.
The Reds are now just two short of 7,000 goals in their league
history. The 6,000th was scored by Jan Molby in a 7-1 win at Derby
County in March 1991. Ronnie Moran was caretaker-manager at the time.
If Liverpool keep a clean sheet it will be their 50th in the Premiership under Rafa Benitez.
Liverpool have lost just one of their last 35 Premiership games at
Anfield and only one visiting team (Charlton on the final day of last
season) has scored more than once since Chelsea in October 2005.
Liverpool have conceded just 15 goals in the last 38 home league games.
There has only ever been one goalless draw between the sides in the 64 league meetings on this ground.
This is the 16th meeting between the two sides since the summer of 2004 with the Reds trailing in victories 7-5.
Liverpool have lost only eight times to Chelsea in the league at
Anfield with three of those defeats coming in the last four years.
There hasn't been a draw in any league meeting between the sides
since May 2001 when Michael Owen and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink each
scored twice in a 2-2 draw.
The last 12 league meetings between the sides have produced a
winner with eight of the last 11 victories being by a one goal margin.
Liverpool's biggest league victory over Chelsea here came in April 1935 when they won 6-0.
If Liverpool win today it will be only the fourth time in the Premiership that the Reds have won their opening two games.
John Arne Riise has scored against Chelsea in the League Cup Final, FA Cup semi-final and Community Shield.
Peter Crouch could play his 100th game for Liverpool today.

PostSubject: STYLES DROPPED AFTER ANFIELD BLUNDER   Mon Aug 20, 2007 10:33 am


Rob Styles has been dropped from next weekend's Barclays Premier League
refereeing list after his penalty blunder at Anfield on Sunday.



Styles has admitted he made an error in awarding Chelsea a second half penalty which allowed them to draw level after Fernando Torres had given Liverpool the lead.



Referees chief Keith Hackett has now confirmed Styles will be given
next weekend off following the fall out from the controversial
decision.


"I spoke to Rob this morning and obviously he is extremely
disappointed with the decision and admitted he got it wrong. I have
left a message with Rafael Benitez to apologise," said Hackett.


"Having looked at a video and seen a better angle and a better
view, clearly he (Styles) now recognises that he got it wrong and he's
deeply apologetic for that. I think, in fact, he too will be making
contact with Liverpool in order to offer his apologies."

TORRES LOVING RAFA'S REGIME

Jimmy Rice
12 September 2007

Fernando Torres
has revealed how a personalised training programme designed by Rafa
Benitez is helping him take the Barclays Premier League by storm.
The Spaniard has been delighted with the start he's
made to life in England, something he puts down in no small part to the
regime at Melwood.
He explained: "Depending on his position outfield, each player has his own personalised training programme.
"The type of training also depends on the strengths and weaknesses
of your next rival. We all practise movements you might need to use in
your position during the course of a game.
"If you have worked on specific moves 15 or 20 times, and you then
use them out on the pitch, then you are more likely to improve."
Torres, who arrived from Atletico Madrid for a record fee in July,
also revealed how he's relishing Liverpool's style of football.
"At Atletico I was more involved in the middle of the park and I
had to drop deep to look for the ball before even thinking of attacking
the rival's box," said the 23-year-old.
"At Liverpool we have players in the middle of the park who take
care of that job, because here each player has a defined role within
the team.
be that is one of the reasons why playing football in England
benefits my game. We play a more direct football, it is also quick with
plenty of counter-attacks and you also have extra support from people
making late runs.
"I feel liberated and am enjoying myself like when I first arrived
at Atletico. I did not expect to receive so much help with settling in.
"Everything is working out fine, though I am still quite a way off
from completely settling in. We are finding our feet; looking for a
house, for a car - though the goals and victories make everything a lot
easier."

PostSubject: Re: Liverpool F.C. Official Thread   Wed Oct 10, 2007 12:30 pm


On Saturday night a name rang around the Mastella Stadium in Valencia
for the first time since May 2004. That name belonged to Rafa Benitez
as the home fans sang in union "Come back Rafa, come back Rafa".



It says everything about the esteem in which the Liverpool manager is
still held in Valencia that more than three years after he departed the
La Liga side he remains the man the fans would love to see running
their club.


With a pair of league championships and a UEFA Cup won during his
stint at the Mastella we shouldn't be surprised that Benitez is still
revered there.


Breaking the Real Madrid/Barcelona duoploy marks him out as an
iconic figure in the Mediterranean city and seeing as the La Liga title
has eluded Valencia ever since Benitez's departure it was always likely
that absence would make the heart grow fonder.


In England, meanwhile, the very same Rafa Benitez is finding his
ability to turn Liverpool into genuine title challengers questioned
and, on occasion, his methods ridiculed whenever results go against his
side and sometimes even when they don't.


The criticism of Benitez comes at a time when Liverpool are
unbeaten in the league and lie just six points off first place. I
repeat, when Liverpool are unbeaten in the league and just six points
off first place.


The stick with which the Liverpool manager is being beaten most
often is rotation. Apparently, if you listen to his critics, teams
which rotate do not win the big prizes.


Well, it certainly worked in Spain so rotation cannot be dismissed as a failure all that easily.



"Ah," say the critics, "that's all well and good but football in England is different to Spain and it'll never work here".



The case for the defence could easily centre on the fact that
Benitez has already guided Liverpool to domestic success in the FA Cup
(not to mention that continental triviality that is the Champions
League).


It might well pain him to do so, but in this case Benitez could
quite easily point to Manchester United's Premiership triumph last
season.


In the 2006/07 season, Sir Alex Ferguson used a total of 23 players en route to the title. At Anfield, Benitez used six more.



Significantly, five of those selected by Benitez only featured in
Liverpool's last three games of the season when the focus had shifted
from domestic to continental pursuits with key first team players
making way for youngsters as the Champions League final loomed.


So, for the most part of the season, Benitez and Ferguson utilised squads of an almost idenitical size.



When it comes down to rotation, the two managers both made constant
changes to their sides throughout the season and looked on track to
record an almost identical number of changes until Liverpool secured
their place in the following season's Champions League and Benitez
began to make more and more changes in a bid to assess the quality of
his younger squad players and the club's priority shifted to that
meeting with Milan.


So, again, both Benitez and Ferguson used rotation. The difference? United won the title and Liverpool didn't.



This season, the criticism of Benitez's methods has grown more and
more ridiculous with every passing week. So much so that their are now
people far less qualified who feel they have the right to tell the
Liverpool manager what his team should be.


Sensationalism is masquerading as analysis and it has got to stop.
By all means question Rafa Benitez but it has to be done with
perspective.


Trophies aren't handed out in October and we will all only know if the Reds boss' system will pay dividends come next May.



But if you have doubts about whether Benitez's methods should be
accepted then consider the words of another of Valencia's favourite
sons, centre forward David Villa.


In a recent interview, Villa was asked how Valencia had managed to
be beaten by Chelsea in last season's Champions League quarter finals
despite having gone 2-1 up on aggregate at home.


His answer was revealing: "It is very simple. We had a very small
squad last season so the manager (Quique Sanchez Florez) could not
rotate as much as he would have liked.


"By the end of the season we had played a lot of games, too many
games, and we were tired and carrying injuries and when Chelsea came
back we had nothing left to give."


It is this kind of endemic exhaustion that Benitez is trying to avoid at Anfield.
Rotation is new to the English game and in a country as insular and
naturally conservative as this one it was always going to be viewed
with suspicion.

But it is all too easy to blame all a club's ills on a selection
process when results go against it. When Liverpool were beaten by
Marseilles last week the usual suspects again argued that the defeat
was caused by rotation.


This was despite the fact that physically the Liverpool players
were at their highest level for several weeks. They were fresh and the
occasional rests they had been given were the reason for this.
The problem was, their physical attributes were fatally undermined
by a lack of confidence which meant their technical and tactical skills
simply did not function.
It was a bad, bad performance but to lay the blame for it at the door of rotation is lazy in the extreme.
Just three seasons ago, the very same critics claimed that every
single goal Liverpool conceded from a set piece was caused by this new
fangled zonal marking system that Benitez had brought with him from
Valencia.
Now, no-one even talks about it. The reason why? Liverpool hardly
ever concede a goal from a set piece anymore while other teams which
use more traditional man-to-man marking systems continue to concede
them on a much more regular basis.
So the message is simple - support the manager and support his
methods. Let the critics have their say but never lose sight of the
fact that we have one of the most tactically astute coaches in European
football who has a record of success that few can get near and most
envy.
Oh, and his Liverpool team is still unbeaten in the Premiership as autumn kicks in.

Those fans at the Mastella know all too well that Benitez is a
special manager - that's why they still sing his name - so let him get
on with the job in hand at Anfield and let's see where we end up in
May.

we were very very lucky to win that game. but we deserve it after what happened to us against chelsea. our centre backs are losing it, enforcements are needed- BIG TIME. The sale of Crouch should pave the way for a new CB coz Hyypia is killing us.

what did you make out of Leiva's contribution?

we lost .. 2-1

YET ANOTHER FREAKISH HYYPIA OWN GOAL... wtf? thats twice in 2 games!!

we desperately need agger back... and a new CB to cover for him.. hyypia is done.. too slow and old to be a player imo.

i KNEW we didnt really care about the CL this season.. but i didnt expect the lads to screw up so early!! at LEAST qualify.

ANYWAY... all's not lost.. we can still qualify...

2 in 2 is a record any striker would be proud of. he was really unlucky with both goals. still, our defence is not dependable and Reina finds himself in a position where he has to come out his line to get the bal.

i keep telling you pennant is shit, you never believe me.

i cant understand why rafa is playing 2 wingers and benching our 6'7" striker...

anyway... i wont overreact.. even though i feel like things will be slipping out of our hands if we lose to arsenal on sunday :r

i hope to god rafa buys another CB come january...

we MIGHT play 3-5-2 ... its a gamble.. but worth it

finnan-carra-fabio aurelio ( if hes out of injury)
