If you will be watching today's action, please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.

Enjoy the action.


  1. The ref must have deemed the defender to have played that ball, just like if he had brought it down and played a bad square pass that Saha pounced on from an offside decision. Very harsh if you ask me, the defender was just doing his job.

  2. One of these things is conventionally in the power of a coach, the other is suggested by jerks: selecting the side; what you said.

  3. It’s really only when an American player is behind a certain player that that player comes under the most scrutiny(by Americans anyways)

    Of course an American will say it’s the worst they’ve seen – There is an American player behind him in the depth chart.

  4. From a British newspaper about 12 hours ago:

    “Villa number one Brad Friedel remains the manager’s undisputed choice and will become the club’s oldest-ever player this evening when he breaks the record of 1940s defender Ernest ‘Mush’ Callaghan against Man Utd at Old Trafford.

    And Houllier is planning to hold talks with the former Blackburn and Liverpool keeper before the end of the month.

    “I told Brad we’ll have the first assessment at the end of February,” said Houllier.

    “I said to him, ‘We’re not looking at bringing in a goalkeeper until we can make an assessment of what level you are and what you want to do and so on’.

    “He’s quite happy with that. He’s 39, nearly 40, and understands at some stage we need to change.

    “We will decide that maybe at the end of February or early March when we have a talk with him.

    “In the meantime, the Joe Lewis Peterborough thing is pure invention from their side. Nobody has talked to anybody there, as simple as that. It has never even been mentioned by my goalkeeping staff that Shay Given would come here.”

    Houllier says replacing Friedel before the end of this season has not crossed his mind – a big vote of confidence for the man whom he let go from Anfield in 2000.

    “If I was not happy with Brad I would have bought a goalkeeper now, which has never been the case and never crossed our mind,” he said.

    “I can see him train and play so I’ve got an idea with him. A goalkeeper brings you ten points a season.”
