      I'm starting to think Riise's gone down a lot in Rafa's estimation. If he chooses not to play him when Finnan's still recovering from a knock, is there much hope for him?

      I think it is hard to judge that sort of thing after an international break. If you look at the starting 11 today, then none of them have played 2 times 90 minutes in the international games. Most of them have played much less than that. Riise is the only one who have done so, as far as i know. Gerrard, Babel and Torres did not play 2 times 90 minutes, but close to. They are on the bench. Do not know about Kuyt an Mascherano though.

      The thing that Rafa wanted Heinze was a much stronger sign in my opinion, because i think that Rafa prefer Aurelio over Riise. On the other hand, Rafa always speaks of players giving him "a lot of options" and Riise certainly is at very unique kind of defender i terms of going forward, so maybe that adds to Riises chances of staying.

      By the way, what a bench today! Sure have some attacking options out there!

      Obviously would love us to score soon, but just to stop that stupid tw*t ringing that bell.

      Why on earth would you :
      1) take a bell to a footy match
      2) ring it constantly ?

      Come on you Reds  ;D

      Hope both his arms fall off, it's driving me nuts!
      Pompey look weak in possesion... giving the ball away too often.

      Watching the match via Star Sports on the TVu console, full signal, excellent!

      Here's the link http://www.tvunetworks.com/. Once installed click on the Star Sports tab.

      Penalty - Agger on Kanu, Alonso booked...

      Kanu v Reina... SAVED!

      I hope referee's are going to be consistant with the shirt pulling.
      Yes in my eyes it was a foul by Arbeloa, therefore a penalty.
      But this ruling has to be applied to all.

      Reina YOU BEAUTY !!

      He didn't, the assistant (linesman) did.

      Veronin was a lucky boy with that challenge on Johnson.
      Liverpool look comfortable but I feel it's too back and forth, a midfield game, need to wind up the pressure and make the possession count.

      Half Time.  Well done Pepe Reina for keeping the reds in the game.

      We really need 3 points here boys.  Let's up our game in the second half - Torres!

      It's still 0 - 0 in the battle of the gobshites.
      Lets hope for that to stay the same, and Liverpool to bang a few in.

      Torres for Crouch, and maybe Babel for Pennant.

      We really need to work on our set pieces. All those free kicks in the first half & not one decent opportunity to show for it? Alonso shouldn't be taking them when we're having a go at goal, out of the players currently on the pitch I'd go for Voronin.
