10-man Liverpool suffered a disappointing loss away to West Brom. Steve Clarke's men were good value for their win, although Brendan Rodgers was unhappy with "harsh" refereeing from Phil Dowd. It's only the first match in a long season, so let's not get carried away. Patience will be key as Rodgers and the team adjust to the new system and tactics.
Some things observed in this game:
- Allen looks to be the player we all hoped him to be;
- Liverpool achieved 89% successful passing completion, our highest in years;
- Our usually solid defence suffered from poor communication and the change of Johnson on the left and Kelly coming in on the right. The new system will take our defenders time to adjust for;
- Lucas is still getting into match fitness and will need some time to get to top form;
- Gerrard will struggle unless we find an attacking role for him, where he's strongest;
- Downing was disappointing, as usual;
It's going to take several games to grow into a new style of football. We all know the old football cliche: "it's a marathon, not a sprint".
Next up is Hearts away on Thursday in the Europa League.

Please join us at Scallywags on Friday May 25th 2012 to celebrate the life of our dear friend Graham Wignall. We will be getting together to raise a few glasses, tell a few stories and of course sing a few songs in memory of Graham.
Our own Benny will be providing the entertainment and we will be raffling off some great autographed Liverpool FC merchandise.
We'll be starting around 7.00pm and going on until chucking out time.
Wear your Liverpool colours and let's make this a great evening.
Dear LFC Toronto Supporters,
How do I start to thank you all? It has been a tremendous shock to lose Graham, as you can imagine.
I have to tell you that your support has enveloped and helped me, and your cards and messages have given me such strength.
The flowers you sent were just lovely - thank you very much.
There were so many of you at the service on Tuesday, and afterwards at Scallywags, and many people confirmed what I had thought - Graham would have loved it!
Thank you to those who were unable to attend, but called or sent messages - greatly appreciated.
As you know, he was the life and soul of the party, and there was nothing more that he liked to do than talk about his beloved team. Everywhere I look around our home are reminders of his love of the Reds. From his cap he wore when he went to Wembley, the football he caught at the game on January 1, 1983 (Liverpool 5 - Notts 1), the Fez he wore for the Istanbul game on May 25, 2005 (his birthday!), to the Toronto LFC Supporters membership binder.
He spent hours on the memberships and would keep immaculate records from previous years. It gave him a real kick to get someone else to join, and he would usually send a ‘Junior membership card’ to a new baby!
Many an early morning he would walk down to Scallys with extra scarves (just in case!), and then come home and watch the game again, because he wanted to see each kick, pass and goal again! I have many memories of him reading the match report or listening to Kenny, and then he would phone one of you to talk about the game and worry about the stats!!
And so - thank you again, very much.
You'll Never Walk Alone Graham!
It is with great sadness that we announce that LFC Toronto Branch executive, lifelong Red, and great friend Graham Wignall has passed away. Graham suffered heart failure earlier in the week and lost the battle the afternoon of March 24. Rest in peace, Graham! We're going to miss you mate. YNWA!
Listen to Lindsay O'Conner and Peter Irvine's short announcement on the International Sport Report on the Fan590 here.
We have the best supporters in the world! Scallywags was packed wall-to-wall, including the patio upstairs!
Celebrating the win after the last penalty is missed.
You'll Never Walk Alone!
Liverpool lifted the 2012 Carling Cup after an exciting final at Wembley! Lots of respect has to be given to Cardiff, who never gave up, even when they went down 2-1 with minutes to go in extra time. They forced a second goal in the final minute, to take us to penalties. One thing you can't say about Liverpool FC and cup finals is that we are boring! Liverpool were not great but did enough to pull it out in the end. Skrtel, Downing, Johnson and Kuyt were immense and made up for off days by others. We finally ended a six year drought of silverware, and this is just the beginning. Onwards to the FA Cup!!!
