BBC have a nice article on Adrian. 

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51374515

 

After a shaky start as sub, understandable given the situation on the night and with having just joined, he chipped in with some good performances and made sure Allison's absence was a mere blip. Also love that Milner is the club's trophy guardian, probably because no one can outrun him if they take a pot without his permission.

 

And the saltier comments on the article are delicious. Premier League is so poor, standards are slipping and Liverpool would be battling relegation if they were in Serie A, apparently. Bless 'em.

And one from The Guardian, this time about Houllier.

 

Houllier article.

 

Was too young to fully appreciate the tail end of the great 80s sides, only seeing the 88-89 sides firsthand a couple of times, so Houllier’s era was one of the first notable success.
 

That cup treble season was glorious, but also have fond memories of away trips during that period, enjoying players like Gary Mac, the best free agent we’d ever signed until Milner.

 

Houllier always came across as a quietly dignified man, a sort of throwback to a fading era. He was a great servant to Liverpool, and if he hadn’t been followed by Benitez and number five, think he’d be more widely appreciated.

The UEFA Cup final that year was also the first crazy Liverpool game I watched live. I never had Sky growing up so followed the 4-3 games against Newcastle on the radio but that final is still the craziest I’ve ever watched. 2005 was great but you just didn’t know what was going to happen next against Alaves.

This comes from a These Football Times issue solely about Liverpool. Loads of good articles in it and an interview with Carra as well. £10 but i would definitely recommend.

When asked recently, what my favourite ever Liverpool games was, I picked the Alaves game just ahead of the collymore Newcastle game. I'm pretty sure that on carra's podcast, Stevie pick the Alaves game as his favourite of all time too. I've completely forgotten what happened now so it is due a re-watch but I remember the emotion being the strongest I've ever experienced watching football.

That's definitely right for the winner, though I can't really remember any of the rest.

 

Wonder what the chances are of our match tomorrow going ahead - minimal, I'm guessing.

 

Why would the game be off? The weather at the weekend is bad, granted, but the wind isn't as bad as last week.

Dennis seems to be going to be just as bad as Ciara here, and games were called off last weekend, so I'm not sure why it's such an absurd notion.

 

It's not so much the game itself but fans getting to and from the ground, etc.
