Cracking couple of months if you ignore the domestic cups, it's great to see Celio and Ord sharing the goal-scoring burden. What are your facilities like?

Cheers fella :thup:. Ord and Celio have been fantastic this season. I was expecting to ease Ord out of the team to be honest, but with Celio being in such fantastic form it seems to have spurred Ord on.

All my facilities are listed as 'state of the art' :cool:.

These are my last 10 games of the season and I have just realised that 'if' I remain unbeaten, I will beat Arsenal's 49 game unbeaten record.

Two cracking months for us in March and April as we remain unbeaten with just two games left. I think you are all clever enough to do the maths so I wont go on. We started with two 4-0 wins over Leicester and Huddersfield before a trip to Villa Park which resulted in a solid 2-0 win. A bit of an annoying draw away to Stoke followed before we got back to winning ways with a nice 4-1 win over WBA. We produced three fantastic displays following this with fine wins over Spurs and Everton either side of a solid [URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/854/liverpoolvmanutdinforma.png/"][B]3-1 win[/B][/URL] over Man Utd. Despite a frustrating draw at home to Sunderland to round off April, we have done all the hard work.

A second half collapse in Madrid see's us exit the Champions League. We fell behind early on but Chris Ord levelled things up. We went in at half time level and I tried my best to motivate the lads but Madird blitzed us in the second half. Three goals within 10 second half minutes were enough to knock us out.

Yup, thats right, the Man Utd result has concluded with this:

So another two wins see's us go through the entire season unbeaten. An excellent achievement!!! A solid win away to West Ham opened May for us as we put in a very good performance. We finished the season with a cracking win over Nottingham Forest with Chris Ord celebrating his new contract in style.

What a brilliant campaign for us. We managed to go the entire season unbeaten and in the process eclipse Arsenal's record of 49 league games unbeaten. We were fantastic in the first half of the season, winning all but three of our games as we marched to the top of the league before going away for the World Club Championship's. When we came back we picked up where we left off as we went on a fantastic run of high scoring wins such as the 5-0 wins over Blackburn, Middlesbrough and Chelsea as well as the 6-1 win over Arsenal. Our fine form continued throughout the second half of the season and we officially sealed the title with a 3-1 win over Man Utd with four games to spare.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/823/liverpoolfixturesfixturw.png/"][B]FA Cup[/B][/URL] (Knocked out in 4th Round)

A pretty shocking FA Cup showing for us, especially after what I am used to. We were knocked out by Championship side Birmingham.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/11/liverpoolfixturesfixturz.png/"][B]League Cup[/B][/URL] (Knocked out in Semi-Final)

We got to the Semi-Final stage pretty easily as we got passed lower league opposition without to much trouble. We drew Newcastle in the Semi-Final who battered us in the first leg. A 3-0 defeat left us with it all to do at Anfield and much to my amazement we found ourselves on the brink as we went 4-0 up. Newcastle scored late on though to take things to extra time, and this took the sting out of us as we went out at a whimper in extra time.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/225/liverpoolfixturesfixturk.png/"][B]Community Shield[/B][/URL] (Winners)

The usual. A [URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/259/liverpoolvtottenhaminfo.png/"][B]3-1 win[/B][/URL] over Spurs see's us lift the Community Shield yet again.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/802/liverpoolfixturesfixturd.png/"][B]Champions League[/B][/URL] (Knocked out in 1st Knockout Round)

We made things difficult for ourselves to be honest. Two poor performances against PSG meant we had to settle for second place in our [URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/69/europeanchampionscupovej.png/"][B]group[/B][/URL] to set up a tie against Real Madrid. Despite a 1-0 win at Anfield and going into the break in the second leg level at 1-1, a second half blitz from Madrid knocked us out of the competition.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/98/liverpoolfixturesfixtur.png/"][B]UEFA Super Cup[/B][/URL] (Winners)

A comfortable [URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/406/liverpoolvanjiinformati.png/"][B]3-0 win[/B][/URL] saw us lift the UEFA Super Cup in Holland.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/15/liverpoolfixturesfixturp.png/"][B]World Club Championship[/B][/URL] (Winners)

We eased ourselves into the Fianl, where despite our utter dominance we had to rely on penalties, but in the end we [URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/607/grmiovliverpoolinformat.png/"][B]got the job done[/B][/URL].

A lot of transfer activity which included us splashing out on Jose Leiva. Overall though, I was very pleased with out transfers this season.
Finances look very healthy.

Following England's defeat in the European Championship Final their Manager Andy Parkinson stepped down. Can I really turn down my home nation?

Well, well, well. Following what looked to be a good tournament on home soil, England once again failed to deliver despite losing in the Final. Following this, manager Andy Parkinson stepped down and The FA thought I was the man to take our nation forward and Im not one to shy from a challenge am I ;).

Ouch!!! Thats the best word I can use. I let Steven Gerrard take charge of the games, and to his credit 90% of the squad were still on a break from the Euro's or were on International duty for the Olympics. Lets just forget about pre-season eh.

[CENTER][B][I]Community Shield[/I][/B]

[IMG]http://i869.photobucket.com/albums/ab258/SRL88/LiverpoolFixtures_Fixtures-6-2.png[/IMG][/CENTER]

A rare defeat for us in this comeptition. We werent helped by a sending off within the first 10 minutes but we battled on. Spurs however took advantage of the extra man to win the game.

[CENTER][B][I][URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/832/liverpooltransfershisto.png/"]Transfers - In[/URL][/I][/B][/CENTER]

Just the three signings for us in the summer. Lets take a look.

[CENTER][URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/59/igorstrekalovoverviewat.png/"][B][I]Igor Strekalov[/I][/B][/URL] - £30m - The big money signing. At £30m he could be a bit of a risk but he has age on his side and already looks quality.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/832/olivierdufouroverviewat.png/"][B][I]Olivier Dufour[/I][/B][/URL] - £11.5m - Another younger player brought in and should add quality to the side both now and in the future.

[URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/542/nicolasmelonioverviewat.png/"][B][I]Nicolas Meloni[/I][/B][/URL] - £800k - Rated at 5*, this is an excellent signing.[/CENTER]

[CENTER][URL="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/706/liverpooltransfershisto.png/"][B][I]Transfers - Out[/I][/B][/URL][/CENTER]

Like always, a fair few players leaving the club. I sent a fair few out on loan as usual, but there were a few departures. Oczipka was whinging that he wanted a new challenge so I offered him out to clubs. £4.6m for a loan is brilliant and PSG also have an agreed fee of £15m. Lets hope!!! Fuska also left this season. Entering the last year of his contract and at nearly 29yo I wanted to tie him down, but he wanted close to £150k p/w in wages which I wasnt prepared to offer. £11.5m is pretty good business in my eyes.

I actually asked Chris to retire from International duty but he refused. Following this I thought he might as well take the captains armband :cool:.

I thought you'd want to have him on your England side, instead of trying to retire him.

A pretty good start to the season for us but it could have been a little better. We were all over Leicester on the opening day but conceded a goal with the last kick of the game to deny us the win. We fell behind against Villa in our next game but came back in style thanks to first half goals from Chris Ord and Jose Leiva. A second goal from Leiva in the second half sealed us the win. The game against Stoke was a case of not if, but how many. Despite settling for a 2-0 win it could have been at least 8. Ganso and Dufour were the difference however to give us a solid start to the season.

I wanted to keep him tied just to the Liverpool side to prolonge his career but he wasnt having it.

A little surprised considering Wolves' start to the season but I accept it none the less.

So after 15 years as owner, Roman Abramovich fianally decides to sell up at Chelsea FC.

I have to say that I am really pleased with this draw. Only Italian champions Palermo should cause us any sort of trouble.
