Liverpool repeat Istanbul heroics
I would love to know what the odds were on the FA Cup final ending 3-3 and then Liverpool winning on penalties. I thought I would never see anything like Istanbul again; I was wrong. West Ham were awesome and very unlucky to lose the game but Liverpool just kept going and going in and Steven Gerrard we truly have one of the greatest players in the world at the moment. His goal to make it 2-2 was fantastic; his goal to make it 3-3 was simply majestic. The game was so similar to the Champions League final that even at the end of extra-extra time Reina had to make a great save to deny the Hammers, just like Dudek made against Shevchenko. I take my hats off to both teams for giving us one of the best FA Cup finals ever.
As a Liverpool fan I am delighted that we have ended the season winning some silverware. Rafa has been here for two seasons and has delivered two trophies in that time, and we have also, this season, achieved our highest ever points tally in the Premiership. Under Houllier we had the potential to be a great side; under Benitez we are realising that potential. Benitez knows that Liverpool need to improve even further to win the league and this is where Houllier failed. His signings were simply awful and we ended up going backwards. I cannot see Benitez making the same mistakes and if he can get the right players in, then we really will be serious title contenders.
This is a great time to be Liverpool fan.
