Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool have beaten Spurs 2-0 at Anfield, thanks to two goals from Dutchman Dirk Kuyt.
The Reds faced a tough game against Harry Rednapp’s team who are ahead of Liverpool in fourth place, so a home win was imperative.
So a fifth minute goal involving Aquilani and Kuyt was just the start that Rafa and his team needed.
The tempo of the rest of the game was a Liverpool team challenging ferorciously for every ball, trying to win every tackle and competing for every 50/50 ball.
Tottenham was simply ground down by the Liverpool machine which gave away nothing in defence.
Kyrgiacos was magnificent in defence, keeping former Red, Peter Crouch in his pocket and getting forward to threaten from every set-piece.
As the second wore on, it was Liverpool who were finishing the stronger, Kuyt had some good chances to add to his goal, Riera also came close with a header as the Reds dominated the ame.
The inroduction of David Ngog for the tiring Aquilani had an immediatle effect.
The young Frenchman caused havoc among the Spurs defence and was eventually fouled in the box for a penalty that Kuyt scored at the second time of asking by ref Howard Webb, giving Liverpool a 2-0 win.
The result was welcome and moves us into 6th in the table and just a point behind Tottenham in 4th.
So our season is back on track in the Premiership.
Good to see George Gillette come out an support Rafa at this time.
Good also to see Stevie G rubbish reports that he wants to quit Liverpool, I was fooled by that one myself.
So well done Rafa and Liverpool, we have turned a corner.
