8th September 1984 : Arsenal 3 Liverpool 1

The reigning League champions are struggling to defend their crown. Even though only 5 matches have been played, this defeat sends us down to 8th place in the table. We are averaging two goals a game but only have 8 points out of 15. It isn’t the form expected of champions and it will get worse before it gets better. Alan Kennedy’s late consolation at Highbury is his only goal of the season and, as it turns out, the last of the 20 he scored wearing our colours. Brian Talbot’s double means that he has now scored 6 goals against Liverpool (1 for Ipswich Town, 5 for Arsenal).

8th September 1990 : Wimbledon 1 Liverpool 2

It is our third successive win over Wimbledon at Plough Lane and all have been by the same score. Ronnie Whelan gets the decisive goal there for the second season in a row (goal from 4 minutes 14 seconds on :

8th September 2001 : Liverpool 1 Aston Villa 3

Jerzy Dudek, signed eight days earlier from Feyenoord, has a most unhappy start to his Liverpool career. It is ‘a bad day at the office’ all round with Steven Gerrard deservedly receiving the third red card of his club career for a really nasty tackle on George Boateng. Gerard Houllier’s post-match comments that Boateng was “a good actor” do not go down well. Anyone who remembers this Gerrard/Boateng incident will know that referee Andy D'Urso’s decision was 100% correct.

DEBUTS ON THIS DAY


Jack Whitham (1970)
 

Born in Burnley, Jack made his reputation at Sheffield Wednesday, for whom he scored 26 times in 63 League games, as well as appearing once for England's Under-23 side. After signing for Liverpool in April 1970, he was given his League debut at Newcastle on 12th September 1970 but only made a further 5 League appearances during the rest of that season, scoring just once - in the 2-1 win at West Ham in the middle of December. But John Toshack's arrival meant that Jack's first-team opportunities became very limited. However, he did enjoy some success towards the end of 1971, scoring two late goals in a win at Coventry and then managing a hat-trick against Derby County at Anfield three weeks later. His last game (and goal) came at Huddersfield on 12th February 1972. He was ironically enough transferred to the club Toshack had arrived from (Cardiff City) in January 1974 but moved on to Reading a year later.

DEBUTS ON THIS DAY


Dick Forshaw (1919)


Inside-forward Dick joined Liverpool from Middlesbrough as League football returned after the end of the First World War and was a regular scorer for the club for 8 seasons before making the short trip across Stanley Park to continue his career with Everton. Introduced after the opening 3 fixtures of the 1919-20 season, he played in 23 First Division games and scored 7 times (including a hat-trick against Derby County) in helping his club finish the season in 4th place. Another 4th place followed a year later when Dick's contribution was 9 goals from 27 appearances. But it was during the next two years that he really came to prominence, not missing a single League game as the club won the League title in consecutive seasons, 1921-22 & 1922-23. He scored 36 times in those 84 League games, a remarkable total for a player in his position. Although Dick only missed 3 games when Liverpool unsuccessfully went for a championship hat-trick, his goals tally was down to 5 but 'normal service' was resumed in 1924-25 when he was easily the club's leading scorer with 19 and he bettered that in what was to prove his final full season at Anfield with 27 from only 32 League games in 1925-26.

DEBUT GOALS

Robert Done ( 1928)


Robert was a full-back who first appeared in Liverpool's League side at Bolton on New Years' Day 1927 but that was one of only two occasions he played for the first-team in the 1926-27 season and only four more appearances followed the next year. His breakthrough came in 1928-29, when he only missed 5 First Division games and scored 5 times, 3 of them being penalty-kicks. He was replaced by Tommy Lucas after a dozen or so matches of the next season but won his place back when preferred to James Jackson for a while early in 1930-31 and continued to represent the club on a regular basis for another three years. Robert's final game for Liverpool was at Anfield against Leicester City on 17th November 1934, a match the hosts won 5-1.

9th September 1972 : Liverpool 4 Wolverhampton Wanderers 2

Peter Cormack scores on his home debut, Ray Clemence starts a run of consecutive club matches that will not be broken for five and half years and our first goal (scored by Emlyn Hughes) would, had it been scored today, have gone down as a Phil Parkes own-goal because Emlyn’s shot hits a post and then rebounds into the net off the goalkeeper’s body. Highlights here :

9th September 1978 : Birmingham City 0 Liverpool 3

A 5th consecutive League win from the start of the season. A week after the Anfield destruction of Tottenham, this is a team playing at the peak of its powers with great confidence and assurance. Our goal-difference is already +17 and that figure will gradually increase throughout the season. Birmingham are swept aside without any mercy. They fail to win 16 of their 21 home League matches in this season and those statistics almost inevitably lead to relegation in May.

9th September 1995 : Wimbledon 1 Liverpool 0

A stormy match at Selhurst Park. The kick-off is delayed by some ten minutes because there is so much congestion outside the stadium. We had thousands there all over the stadium. The team’s performance does not match the travelling fans’ enthusiasm. The match is decided by Phil Babb’s own-goal but that is not the main talking-point. Referee Keith Burge decides to send Wimbledon’s Andy Thorn off following a clash with Stan Collymore midway through the first half. Then, bizarrely, Thorn is recalled from the dressing-toom and Vinnie Jones is sent there instead! Thorn’s afternoon still ends early though as he is carried off with a seriouis knee injury just before the interval. We battered them in the second half but just couldn’t score with Dons goalkeeper Paul Heald having the game of his life. We never lost to Wimbledon at Plough Lane but this is already our second defeat to them at Selhurst.

9th September 1998 : Liverpool 2 Coventry City 0

It took Coventry 27 matches before they won at Anfield. So another defeat for them surprises nobody as we maintain our unbeaten start to the season and go to the top of the table (both Aston Villa and ourselves have 10 points from 4 matches but our goal-difference is slightly better).

A horrible defeat and Everton’s biggest win over us since they beat us 4-0 at Anfield in September, 1964. Pepe Reina’s bad error gifts Andy Johnson his second goal and leads to their “Reina drops keep falling on my head” jibe. Highlights here :

TRANSFERS IN


Steve Arnold (1970)


Signed from Crewe in September 1970, Steve made his only first-team appearance for the Reds in bizarre circumstances. Liverpool incurred the wrath of the Football League (and received a large fine as a result) by making TEN changes for the penultimate League match of the season at Manchester City two days after they had won at Nottingham Forest (Ron Yeats was the only survivor from the Forest match). The reason was simple. Already in the F.A. cup final, Liverpool had to visit Elland Road with a place in the Fairs cup final at stake only 2 days after the trip to Maine Road and Bill Shankly was not prepared to allow his first-choice players to go through such a punishing schedule with more important fixtures coming up. So if it hadn't been for that cup-tie at Leeds, Steve would probably never have played a competitive game for Liverpool at all !

DEBUT GOALS



Peter Cormack (1972)


Edinburgh-born Scottish-midfielder Peter arrived at Anfield in July 1972 after having played 72 League games for Nottingham Forest and double that number for his home-town club Hibernian. His experience and creativity added something extra to the squad that had narrowly missed out on the championship in 1971-72 and Peter was an important brick in Shankly's 'new' team which won not only the First Division title in 1972-73 but also the club's first-ever European trophy, the UEFA cup. Peter had to wait until the 7th League fixture of the season (at Derby's Baseball Ground) before being handed his League debut but he scored in his home debut against Wolves the following week and never looked back after that, finishing with 8 goals from his 30 starts plus another 22 appearances in the different cup competitions. 1973-74 was another good year for Peter. He figured in all 42 League matches and added an F.A. cup winners' medal to his collection. Aged 28 when the 1974-75 season began, he looked to have years of success ahead of him at Anfield but when Bob Paisley's master-stroke converted Ray Kennedy from a lumbering forward into a graceful midfielder, it was Peter who suffered as a consequence. He did qualify for another championship medal in 1975-76 after starting 16 League matches but was clearly surplus to requirements at Anfield and it was no real surprise when he moved on to Bristol City in November 1976.

Joseph Dines (1912)
Jack Tennant (1933)


Joseph made just one League appearance for Liverpool, as a defender in the 3rd match of the 1912-13 season, away to Chelsea. Just for the record, Liverpool won 2-1.

Jack was a full-back who made 39 League appearances for Liverpool (plus a further 3 in the F.A.cup) during the 1930's. He first played for the club in the Autumn of the 1933-34 season, making 7 consecutive First Division appearances before missing the next 16 matches and then being brought back for another short run of 6 games in succession. Ernie Blenkinsop started 1934-35 as first-choice left-back and played in the first 16 League fixtures before Jack replaced him for the remaining 26 games of the season.

8th September.

1984: Liverpool are well beaten at Arsenal as their mixed start to the season continues. The goals are flowing freely which suggests the injured Ian Rush isn't being badly missed (yet), but the departure of Graeme Souness to Sampdoris is being felt badly as nobody is able to take control of a game.

1990: Liverpool's final visit to Plough Lane sees them win 2-1 thanks to 1st half goals from John Barnes and Ronnie Whelan. The Reds won 4 and drew 1 of their 5 visits to Plough Lane, but things would take a considerable  change for the worse when Wimbledon took up tenancy at Selhurst Park the following season.

2001: This was an awful perfirmance, and the result did not flatter Villa. Although Steven Gerrard cancelled out Dion Dublin's opener, Darius Vassell and Lee Hendrie ensured the points went back down the M6. The fact that Steven Gerrard's crude lunge on George Boateng happened in front of the dugouts made Gerard Houllier's comments about Boateng 'overreacting' even more ludicrous.

September 9th.

1989: The 1st of 2 visits I made to the Baseball Ground. The 1st half is fairly tame, but Ian Rush has Liverpool in front soon after the interval when he fires in from close range after a Peter Beardsley shot comes down off the underside of the bar. Beardsley runs the 2nd half, and is brought down by Peter Shilton for the penalty which John Barnes converts, before getting a well deserved goal in injury time to complete the win.

My other visit 18 months later would see the Reds score 7.

1995: I mentioned above that Liverpool had problems against Wimbledon at Selhurst Park. They only won 1 League game there, and that was when the Dons got relegated in 2000. They did enjoy an FA Cup replay success in 1995, but the defeat on this day was par for the course.

1998: Patrik Berger and Jamie Redknapp score in each half as Liverpool dominate Coventry at Anfield. In truth it could have been many more, but 2 was more than enough.

2000: Michael Owen scores his 6th goal in 3 games (7 in 4 if you count his England goal in Paris) to give Liverpool an early lead. It looks game over when Dietmar Hamman hits a glorious 2nd on 56 minutes. City are soon back in the game though thanks to George Weah and a Kevin Horlock penalty. Hamman secures victory on 82 minutes, although Liverpool still have to survive some anxious moments. Joe Royle compalins afterwards about his team getting a penalty!!!

2006: Pepe Reina continues his poor run of form as Everton run out easy winners. Tim Cahill opens the scoring, and Andy Johnson doubles their lead before the break. Johson adds another deep into injury time to complete a miserable day. Pepe Reina was culpable on both Johnson's goals. I still don't know to this day why he doesn't wear a cap when the sun is in his eyes as the vast majority of avoidable goals he concedes always seem to be in that situation?

There were no headed goals by Ian Rush in his League cup hat-trick at Blackburn. The late Blackburn goal scored by Chris Sutton was a header. Here's a match-report description of Rushie's treble :

There seemed little danger when Sherwood's mistake gave Robbie Fowler possession on the Liverpool left, but when the teenager moved the ball inside, Rush let fly, left-footed, from the edge of the box and the ball screamed past Tim Flowers' groping right hand.

But 12 minutes after half-time, Rush made another telling contribution. John Scales headed forward from half-way, Jones, still up after a Liverpool attack, helped the ball on and Rush raced past Berg before firing under the advancing Flowers.

Stig Bjornebye crossed from deep on the Liverpool left, Le saux, looking for Flowers to claim the ball headed up into the air, and Rush poked home from close-range to complete hit hat-trick.

2000. Man City at home. This was an excellent game; we were  2-0 up and cruising. Hey then score 2, the 2nd of which is after Traore concedes the least debatable penalty I have ever seen awarded against us; a dreadful foul.
However straight from the kick off, whilst the City supporters are still in full voice celebrating the equaliser, Hamman rifles in his 2nd to shut them up.
A memorable game.

I was in that Darwen End too that evening, Alan; and you're right. It was a screamer that is always worth another look at so here it is :

10th September 1974 : Liverpool 2 Brentford 1

It is our first meeting with Brentford for twenty seven and a half years and the first time we have played them in a domestic cup since 1906! Kevin Keegan is halfway through his long ban for being sent off in the Charity Shield at Wembley. Phil Boersma has performed well in Keegan’s absence and in getting the winning goal in this cup-tie scores for the 6th time in the last three matches.

10th September 1975 : York City 0 Liverpool 1

Bob Paisley picks a strong team at York, who finished in 15th place in the Second Division in 1974-75. I had seen one League match at the stadium before but this was Liverpool’s first-ever visit to Bootham Crescent. I stood in the Paddock in front of their Main Stand and so had an excellent view of a very uninspiring game that only exploded into life a couple of minutes from time. Kevin Keegan broke through their defensive wall and was chopped down inside their penalty-area. It was a definite penalty and the referee gave it immediately much to the disgust of all the home supporters standing around me. Alec Lindsay was now taking more penalty-kicks than Kevin Keegan and he buried this one. It turned out to be Alec’s last penalty for Liverpool. He scored 8 out of 11, which was a better percentage success-rate (72.7%) than Keegan (64.7% : 11 out of 17) or, in later years, Owen (56.5% :13 out of 23).

10th September 1977 : Liverpool 2 Coventry City 0

Kenny Dalglish, who scored in the opening four League and cup matches of the season, then missed out at Birmingham, is back in the goal-scoring groove against Coventry; Kenny’s goal comes just two minutes after David Fairclough has opened the scoring and effectively consigns the Sky Blues to their customary defeat at Anfield (they now have 11 defeats and just 2 draws from 13 visits since 1961).

10th September 1983 : Arsenal 0 Liverpool 2

The occasion of a classic Liverpool goal, perhaps remembered as much for John Motson’s commentary as the finish by Kenny Dalglish. Over to you, Motty : “That’s a fine ball, Hansen to Rush, they seem to find angles other teams don’t appreciate, Lee, Dalglish, Lee again, Robinson, back-heel to Dalglish surely, Yes it was, It’s on here … and Dalglish has scored a quite magnificent goal”. Both goals from 4 minutes 38 seconds on :

10th September 1988 : Aston Villa 1 Liverpool 1

This is the match I wrongly described for our 1-1 draw at Villa Park in August 1989. Ray Houghton’s brilliant chip over Nigel Spink earns us a point after Alan McInally has given Villa the lead a few minutes before half-time.

10th September 1994 : Liverpool 0 West Ham United 0

West Ham arrive at Anfield not having won at our stadium since 1963 and having made a quite dreadful start to the season with just one point and one goal from their opening four League matches of the season. We have only played three times but have maximum points and have scored nine times. So it looks like it ought to be a home win with John Scales making his Liverpool debut eight days after signing from Wimbledon. Scales performs competently enough but it is another debutant who makes the headlines. Tony Cottee is making his second debut for the Hammers after re-signing for them from Everton in midweek. Early in the second half Cottee is sent off by referee Paul Danson for crudely lunging at Rob Jones just seconds after Mister Danson has taken no action for a Jones challenge on him. Inevitably we have more possession after Cottee has left the field but can’t find a way past Ludek Miklosko.

We draw at White Hart Lane for the second season running but can consider ourselves unfortunate not to win after a venomous left-footed shot from John Arne Riise screams past Paul Robinson and nearly breaks the crossbar in half :

10th September 2011 : Stoke City 1 Liverpool 0

Our unbeaten start to the season ends in controversial circumstances at the Britannia Stadium as Stoke score from a contentious penalty while we are denied one when a late cross from Luis Suarez hits Matthew Upson on the arm but Mark Clattenburg gives nothing. Unsurprisingly, Stoke manager Tony Pulis does not see things the way we do :

but Kenny is not happy :

As this thread started by Rafa_La completes a full twelve months and a staggering 120+ pages, I cannot let that pass without comment.

I know I have monopolised this thread. That did bother me initially, until I realised that my contributions were just the sort of thing that Max (Rafa_La) was looking for. I also realised that we all have a responsibility to pass on the great history of our club to others. I am lucky. In over forty years of being an active supporter, I have seen things that supporters of other clubs can only dream about. But I am still learning (every day) about the club’s rich history. If I don’t learn something new every day, I am disappointed. I have a good memory and a fascination with facts and figures. If that fascination has irritated others at times, then I apologise. I have tried to make my posts both informative and interesting, adding goal-clips when I can find them to support my text. Rafa-La’s vision enabled me to go on a wonderfully nostalgic journey through those forty years … the places I have been to, the people I have met, the things I have seen. I wouldn’t change a second of any of it, even if I accept that it has not been totally healthy to have an obsession that has dominated much of my childhood and all my adult life. As I get closer to my 60th birthday in November, I am closing in on a milestone that will mean much to me … my 1000th live Liverpool match (I am currently on 978); and all being well, I will attend my 100th Liverpool match in European competition (82 home, 14 away, 4 neutral) when Anzhi come to Anfield at the end of October.

So I thank Rafa-La in particular for his encouragement and I have also appreciated the kind, positive comments of posters like ALANM, HELLRAZOR, Crosby Nick and a few others. I tried to get involved in Rafa_La’s idea and I hope it worked. The word-document I created to prepare my daily postings finishes these twelve months at over FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY PAGES long!  It might not mean a lot to anyone else but having that to look back on will mean a hell of a lot to me.

My sincere thanks to anyone who read and enjoyed what I had to say. If only one person enjoyed it, it was still worth doing.

Take care, everyone.

Chris

 In History
September 8th
1984 Arsenal (Division One) Highbury 1-3
Alan Kennedy 82'
Att 50,006

I have seen highlights of this on ESPN before, we looked absolutely lost without Graeme Souness, we made a very poor start to the season which actually saw us hovering over the drop zone around October time, we would eventually finish 2nd which was quite an achievement under the circumstances although as it was the first time in 4 seasons we didnt win the league it didnt feel that way.

1990 Wimbledon (Division One) Plough Lane 2-1
John Barnes 27' Ronnie Whelan 82'
Att 12,364

Im not sure about the minutes for these goals as both were scored at the same end, John Barnes appears to be attempting a cross but you actually wouldnt know as he nears the bye line he instead chips the keeper, You just wouldnt know with Barnes. It was to be our third consecutive win at Plough Lane by 2 goals to 1. In the two previous wins the winning goals were scored first by Barnes and then by Ronnie Whelan so it is ironic that both players score here, the winning goal like the previous season is scored by Whelan who nets a spectacular diving header after a pinpoint cross from Ronnie Whelan.

It was the last we played at Wimbledon's tiny Plough Lane ground, the club decided it wasnt worth their while renovating to meet an all seater criteria so first team football ceased there in 1991, Wimbledon would eventually ground share with Crystal Palace, Plough Lane continued to be used for reserve matches until it was demolished around 2002.

I always find old places and old pics fascinating.

heres what plough Lane did look like back in the day
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_LT6s-Qii7wA/TMiL8touMhI/AAAAAAAAAC0/lZyEYQaHvCQ/s1600/plough+lane.jpg

unfortunately by the time it closed it looked like this
http://softsecondyellow.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/plough-lane.jpg

when safeway purchased it in 2000 for its eventual reincarnation as a supermarket (this didnt happen) the ground looked like this
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PloughLane.jpg

another proper old school look

eventually the land was sold to a property developer and some properties were named after former Wimbledon greats such as Alan Cork and Dave Bassett.



2001 Aston Villa (Premier League)Anfield 1-3
Steven Gerrard 46'
Att 44,102

Much was made that week of Liverpool's England starts who all combined to help their country to a famous 5-1 win away to Germany, not to mention Liverpool purchasing two goalkeepers in Jerzy Dudek and Chris Kirkland. Villa however were out to spoil all this and that they did when Dion Dublin smashed home an unstoppable header, shortly after half time Steven Gerrard equalized but late goals from Lee Hendrie and Darius Vassell gave Villa a 3-1 win. Gerrard compunded this poor result with a shocking tackle on George Boateng leading to a much deserved straight red card while up the in the stand Sander Westerveld was allowing himself a wry smile or two as Dudek didnt exactly cover himself in glory although to be fair the camera was probably waiting on that.

spent the night trying to forget this at my sisters housewarmer. also heard one interesting footnote that Dion Dublin was that night a guest on the ill fated segment "Andy's tactics truck" which was a feature ran from a lorry by Andy townsend on ITV's highlights programme the Premiership (when they took over match of the day). It involved Townsend inviting a premiership player into a truck where he would be taken through highlights of the game they just played in, it was probably a good idea but the segment was heavily ridiculed from day one when townsend forced Ugo Ehiogu to painfully sit through highlights of a game his Middlesboro side lost 4-0 to Arsenal and basically tore apart his performance.

This particular segment apparently saw Townsend ask Dion Dublin how he rated his sides chances for a midweek match, Dublin apparently didnt know Villa were even playing. The segment was dropped shortly after this.

September 9th

1989 Derby County (Division One) Baseball Ground 3-0
Ian Rush 50' John Barnes 82'(Pen) Peter Beardsley 90'
Att 20,034

It was our 4th match of the season and our 3rd consecutive away game, we were unbeaten at this point but having drawn two away games it was time to get back on the winning track. Having missed a good chance in the first half, Ian Rush scored his first of the season to give us the lead after a Peter Beardsley shot came back off the  underside of the bar. Beardsley was at the centre of everything, after hitting the post following one mazy run, the England forward found himself clean through on goal but was fouled by goalkeeper Peter Shilton. John Barnes scored his third of the season by sending Shilton the wrong way and fittingly in the final minute Beardsley made it 3-0 after making a monkey out of both Mark Wright and Peter Shilton.

1995 Wimbledon (Premier League) Selhurst Park 0-1
Att 19,530

As mentioned Wimbledon were now playing in Selhurst Park, they were always a thorn in the side and speaking of which, they had a player called Andy Thorn who was involved in a very bizarre incident here. Thorn had previously played in cup shocks against us for Wimbledon in 1988, Palace in 1990, Palace again in 1992 in which he scored and was also part of a Newcastle side that scored a surprise win at Anfield in 1988. Thorn was initially sent off here when he hacked down Stan Collymore who was back from injury, as the two squared up, Vinny Jones stuck his oar in by headbutting Collymore, both Jones and Thorn were sent from the field with the referee seemingly getting them mixed up and eventually allowing Thorn to continue.

It was just our luck that Thorn would score the games winning goal, the closest we came was a Robbie Fowler effort that Wimbledon keeper Paul Heald somehow tipped onto the bar. We lost 1-0 taking us to 5 games, 3 wins and 2 losses.

1998 Coventry City (Premier League) Anfield 2-0
Patrik Berger 26' Jamie Redknapp 48'
Att 41,771

I had just started in a new school, not due to bad behaviour but more because of locality, i used to have travel over an hour, now it was just 15 minutes. home every day at 430, never hurt. I know we were top here and it was a bit rare back then but I remember very little about this game, the win though meant we had 10 points from 4 games, our much criticized defence had conceded just two goals while up top, no Robbie Fowler or not we still had scored 8, things didnt last too long though, the Houllier - Evans joint managerial effort was soon to be exposed for the bizarreness it was.

2000 Manchester City (Premier League) Anfield 3-2
Michael Owen 11' Dietmar Hamann 56' 82'
Att 44,692

It seemed all plain sailing against newly promoted Man City, Michael Owen gave us the lead and a spectacular effort from Didi Hamann made it 2-0. with 10 minutes to go we seemingly threw it away when George Weah and a penalty from Kevin Horlock (following a clumsy foul by Djimi Traore) made it 2-2 but a clinical volley from Didi Hamann gave us the win although a bad tackle from Hamann at the end meant he was lucky not to be sent off. We had scored 10 goals and conceded 8 in our first 5 premiership games, Michael Owen had scored 6 times and with 10 points from 5 games we were just one point behind top of the table Manchester United, we were in 4th.

2006 Everton (Premier League) Goodison Park 0-3
Att 40,004

I have had the pleasure of laughing at Everton on many occasion but this wasnt one of them. Tim Cahill opened the scoring for them although it did appear as if Steve Finnan had been fouled in the build up. Everton's second from Andy Johnson also seemed to have a foul in the build up but it didnt excuse the mix up between Jamie Carragher and Sami Hyypia. To be fair it was a bit harsh on us, Steven Gerrard twice hit the post, but the laughter against us felt like a pay back for the years we taunted, Sandy Brown, Mick Lyons, Phil Neville and John Bailey. It showed how much Everton were worried when their fans nervously greeted the warning of 5 minutes injury time with obvious trepidation.

However we were to be done again, having been laughed when Fabio Aurelio twice nearly got knocked out with balls in the face, there was to be salt in the wounds when Lee Carsley hit a swerving shot from distance, Reina tried to punch it over the bar but it began dropping into the danger zone of the 6 yard box, with his momentum taking him over the goal line Reina could just make a hash of it again before Andy Johnson headed in his second to make it 0-3 and complete a miserable afternoon in which we would end the day 9th already 8 points off the pace.
