Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool ended the season with a comfortable victory against Spurs at Anfield.
The Reds opened the scoring with a Torres’ header on 35 minutes and were in control throughout.
Dirk Kuyt had a shot deflected into the net early in the second half by Hutton as Liverpool made it look easy against Harry Rednapp’s team.
As I feared, Robbie Keane scored against his old team after his unhappy spell at Liverpool, to make it 2-1, he didn’t celebrate the goal and was warmly applauded by the home crowd.
But Yossi Benyoun finished the game off with 15 minutes to go, sliding the ball past Gomes after some skillful play by the Reds.
This was the cue to bring on Liverpool Legend, Sami Hyypia and to rapturous applause, the big Finn made his final appearance for his team.
He was cheered on every time he touched the ball by the Anfield faithful and he might have made it a dream farewell only for his goalbound header to be stopped on the line by Spurs.
So that’s it, the end of an exciting season where we pushed Utd all the way, finished second on 86 points, our highest Premier League total and only losing twice in the league all season.
Lots of things to be proud about, but its a case of so near and yet so far.
Lets hope we can go one better next year and be champions again at last!
