    Much better game tonight and no goals conceeded great. I was impressed with our new signings and each and every player done a good job. Stewart Downing looks exceptional he`s going to play a major role this forthcoming season. Im pleased to see Aurelio back if he could keep fit this season ( injury free ) we will have as strong a left side as we have a right thats if enrique finally signs?. So it could be a fantastic season for lfc still Suarez, Skrtel and Gerrard Coming back maybe a good centre back? we need not fear any team this season but im sure theres plenty fearing us. Come on you reds.!!!!!!!!!

    Starting XI – 7 Brits; Subs – 4; not counting SG. Good foundation for future 6+5 or any such.
