No doubting that last season there was more lows than highs, but I would just like to give you my season's highlights here.
1- beating Man Utd 2-0 at Anfield was my biggest highlight of the season which I'm sure will be most people's highlight, it always is great to beat them but it was a very important stage of the season for us as we had being going through a terrible run of results at the time. but this result and performance gave us a much needed lift. the gritty performance against a team that was in good form was tremendous and that goal from Torres as he brushed Ferdinand to the side was world class, finished off with the late killer goal from N'Gog.
2-the game away to Aston Villa was a massive game at the time for us as we were playing catch up to them.. It was a great battling performance from the team who were playing against an in form Villa team. I really felt we had to win this game but it looked certain for a 0-0 finish until up popped Torres with his only chance of the game in stoppage time to score the winner with a great finish, great memory.
3-the home game against Spurs was a massive game as well to keep us in the hunt we needed a result it was a really gutsy performance and resiliant performance from us with the players giving everything. I thought Kuyt was immense up front and scored 2 great goals to win the game.
4-beating Everton in February was another massive game and I thought it was our greatest defensive performance of the season as we were under the cosh losing Kyrgiakos in the first half to a harsh sending off. Everton put us under a lot of pressure but the defence was superb standing up to everything, Kuyt nicked the all important goal from a Gerrard corner. Always great to beat Everton.
5- finally the Benfica match at Anfield was another superb European night with us having to come from behind after losing the first leg 2-1. the atmosphere was superb and so was some of the football, Kuyt got the opener after a worried look towards the linesman who was signalling to disallow it. the second was a great one on one finish from Lucas. the third was the best move of the season breaking away from our own box with some great one touch passing finished off by Torres. Then with Benfica pulling one back it got very nervy, but that man Torres finished them off late on with a fourth , great night.
Those were my best memories from the season, I'm sure you'll agree they were good ones.
