Well done Liverpool!
I saw a Gerry perusing the board yesterday but Gerry is a popular name so it could have been anyone; be nice to have our Sports Comentator again, it was always a fair report and he gave credit when credit was due. :D

I have just spoken to my Son on the phone who is a life long Chelsea supporter, I do hate to hear a grown man cry, ( well almost cry ) according to him to lose is bad enough but to lose to Liverpool is the pits. As for me I hope Liverpool are crowned Champions this year. Regards Frank R597816

Hello lads good to see the old site makeing a comeback just like LFC you cant keep a good team down. Now that Rafa seems to have got his own way with the yanks on buying the players he wants may be all the boardroom infighting will stop, and we can concentrate on the football. It's a pitty Robie Keen had to be a pawn in the dispute between Rafa and Ric Parry, though Idont supose Robbie will be that worried, he will have made himself a nice few bob in transfare fees, but I hope his sale back to Tottenham dosnt come back to smack us in the face. Im looking forward to the cup replay with Everton tomorrow night (hope you've booked your seat Bob) If Jack The Lads reading this its about time you made a comeback I miss the bit of banter we had I hope everythings OK with you. Get your blue scarf on Tony. I know it's a bit late but Happy new year to to everyone.

Eveton1 Liverpool 0 . A bad day at the office for Liverpool. After loosing Gerrard and Torres to injurys and playing half of the second half and injury time with ten men after Lucas was sent off for receving two yellow cards Liverpool where up against it. A superb goal by young Gosling in the final minuite of extra time gave Everton the game.

Hi Bob, if Gerrard's out injured, and Torres looking very slow when he was brought off in the Everton game, it would leave us with no backup up front after selling Robie Keen (as I said befor I hope that dosnt come back to haunt us) it could leave us struggleing. We have some hard games comeing up .

Have to agree with you there Gerry trouble is the Pompy defence is leaking goals and with Liverpool needing points to keep up there title challange even with a weakend side Liverpool will be a hard nut to crack your defence looks very good I will keep my fingers crossed for Pompy though

My nephew who was born and brought up in Gosport was a Liverpool supporter all through his childhood but now he's here in OZ and supports Pompy, so i'll be hoping for a Liverpool victory so I can give Charlie the sh*ts. :D ;)

Portsmouth 2 Liverpool 3

Nugent and Carragher battle for possession.
Fernando Torres came off the bench to score an injury-time winner against Portsmouth and send Liverpool to the top of the Premier League.

Torres only came on with 15 minutes to go and by that time his side were chasing victory after David Nugent's opener had been cancelled out by Fabio Aurelio.

The Spain striker then set up Dirk Kuyt before heading home in stoppage-time.

It proved to be a masterstroke for Rafael Benitez to leave Torres on the bench - but it was the closest of calls.

Torres was tired towards the end of the midweek FA Cup defeat to Everton and has international duty this week when Spain face England - but he was still fit enough to be among the substitutes at Fratton Park.

His cameo has put the psychological pressure on Manchester United as Liverpool overtake Sir Alex Ferguson's men at the summit before their match at West Ham this weekend.

The spotlight was inevitably on Benitez for his brave move.

He offloaded Robbie Keane back to Tottenham, then saw talisman Steven Gerrard injured with a hamstring strain - so resting a matchwinner like Torres for 75 minutes was a huge gamble.

Keane would have been almost certain to have played against Pompey if he was still at the club, but instead French youngster David Ngog endured a miserable first league start.

Torres was not the only change, with Benitez radically altering his team and leaving the likes of Albert Riera, Xabi Alonso and Kuyt on the bench.

He also started with three centre-backs and at first the formation looked shaky when Nugent and Peter Crouch got a couple of shots away.

But Pompey were still struggling for confidence as they looked to end a run of failing to win a league game since November - and even a second string Liverpool were bound to create chances.

Pompey goalkeeper David James, equalling Gary Speed's Premier League record of 535 appearances, was left stranded when Liverpool put their first purposeful move together.

Alvaro Arbeloa's cross from the right found Yossi Benayoun unmarked in the penalty area but his finish went into the side-netting after James had slipped.

James would have had no chance either when Aurelio's free-kick curled just wide of the upright. The Brazilian was off target again in the 17th minute when Ngog's cross found its way behind the Pompey defence.

Javier Mascherano is not known for his goalscoring but he had James at full stretch when he was given room 30 yards from goal, with the Pompey stopper diverting the effort for a corner.

Ngog's evening came to an end before the hour mark, with Kuyt brought on for the visitors - and it nearly brought an instant reward.

Benayoun breezed past Hreidarsson and Sylvain Distin before laying the ball off to Kuyt. The substitute crossed to leave an open goal for Ryan Babel from three yards out - but the winger somehow managed to nutmeg himself as he finished.

Nugent made Liverpool pay with his 62nd-minute opener. Crouch had held the ball up before playing a reverse ball to his strike partner, who slotted his finish calmly past Reina.

It was a sweet strike for the Evertonian, who taunted Liverpool fans in the first half about their FA Cup defeat this week.

Liverpool's way back into the match came after an awful backpass from Crouch.

James had to handle to stop Kuyt from finishing, with Webb alert to the offence. Alonso, on as a substitute, tapped the ball for Aurelio to smash into the bottom corner.

Kuyt had the ball in the net but was harshly given offside after racing onto Aurelio's throughball.

Torres came on for the last quarter of an hour for Babel, but Pompey were ahead again with 12 minutes remaining.

Nadir Belhadj swung over a free-kick after Glen Johnson was fouled, with Hreidarsson losing his marker and heading past a wrongfooted Reina.

Kuyt levelled in the 85th minute after Torres crossed from the right and the Dutchman finished into James' near post.

Then came the final twist, with Torres' powerful header from Benayoun's cross finding a way past James.




Teams:


Portsmouth James, Johnson, Campbell, Distin, Hreidarsson, Basinas, Davis, Mullins (Kranjcar 46), Belhadj, Crouch, Nugent.

I needed my heart pill close at hand for the Pompy Liverpool game tonight. As I have said before, I just dont understand how Rafa Benetez brain works. He changed his team again and left the best forward in the country Torres on the bench luckely he scored in extra time to deny Pompy a 2-2 draw and win 3-1 otherwise he would have been asked a lot of questions in tomorrows press. Is he a good tactition or just lucky?
