Jose Reina- super keeper

A spanish who was born on August 31, 1982, with the height of 6' 1'' .
Reina, began his career with the Barcelona youth team in 1997.two years later he was a member of the Spain side which won the European Under-16 Championship.
He was handed his Barcelona debut in 2000 against Celta Vigo, aged only 18, but having failed to hold down a regular place in the first-team he joined Villarreal on loan in 2002.

The stopper was in supreme form as the club finished seventh and reached the last 32 of the UEFA Cup.
He made his Liverpool debut against Total Network Solutions in the 1st qualifying round for the 2005/06 UEFA Champions League.
He is seen as something of a spot-kick expert. In 2004/05 he saved seven of the nine penalties Villarreal conceded and would go on to be equally important for Liverpool in penalty situations.
He proved it again when Liverpool drew with Chelsea in Campion league semi final 2006/2007. They both ended up by penalty shoot out. Reina saves the days by saving 2 out of the penalty and bring Liverpool to final.
For me he is the important walls for Liverpool .To win a game , must make sure no goals conceded and forward scored the goals.
In 2006/2007 Premier League He played 35 games saves 143 times

Steven Gerrard

The english primier league is finished so basically i felt bored in this month after the last games of champion league final.
Liverpool lose to milan when milan won by a lucky goal.
I will make a summary of the important player of Liverpool then maybe other player in other england player later.
I will start with steven Gerrard.
he is one of the best midfield in the world.Gerrard's tireless running, superb vision on the ball and ability to strike from distance make you the best midfield in England and Liverpool.
Gerrard made his Liverpool debut in a European tie during the 1998/99 season against Celta Vigo at Anfield.
He assured a midfield spot as his own during 1999/2000, placing then-captain Jamie Redknapp's future in doubt. A very versatile player, he also filled the right-back slot on a number of occasions during the 2000/01 season.
His superb stamina makes him run the whole games with a distance long shot make him the most fearful and the best midfield in England.
The midfielder was handed the Liverpool captaincy in October 2003 following a loss of form by Sami Hyypia.
Gerrard is simply of the the outstanding performers of the Premiership, a star of the European stage and the kind of player every team in the world would dreamed of.

He made his 325th club appearance in 2005/06.
His performance in 2006/2007
GP 36 | G 7 | A 8 (2006/07 Premier League)
GP: games played G-goals A:assists
I hoped his scored more for Liverpool

Why man utd win and chelsea lose this year

based on bbc sports it is divided into 6 main factor.
Chelsea are a brilliantly organised team who remain extremely difficult to break down.
they got 21 clean sheet compared to man u 15.
but chelsea over-stretched defensively - particularly in the centre.William Gallas and Robert Huth left the club last summer while John Terry, Ricardo Carvalho and Khalid Bouhlarouz have all missed games through injury.
Influential skipper Terry missed a crucial eight weeks of the season during December and January. And it is no coincidence that Chelsea conceded twice in each of the first four games Terry missed over the Christmas period.peter cech injury further worsening the condition.
For man utd ,Edwin van der Sar make a good keeper and Serbia defender Nemanja Vidic has also enjoyed a fine season in the centre of defence, with his no-nonsense defensive style complementing Rio Ferdinand's make man utd defence diff to break.

good middle
scoles returns after long injury with prtner carrick make flow of attacks supreme.
Micheal ballack failed to coordinate with lampard well. I think next year the partnership will be improve for chelsea.
United boss Ferguson understands the importance of width and in the evergreen Ryan Giggs has a veteran winger who is both consistent and potent plus the maturity of C.ronaldo makes them strong.
drogba for chelsea with 19 goal proves that he already adapt to chelsea. but top scorer in milan Andriyi Shevchenko has endured a difficult first season in England. Maybe he will improve next year. Man utd got too many player who can score .it includes Louis Saha, Wayne Rooney, Henrik Larsson, Giggs and Ronaldo . so very difficult for defence to mark them.
relationship between Mourinho and Abramovich has been the subject of constant speculation.Abramovich is said to have favoured a more attacking style of play and wants to win the Champions League above all else.While man utd now in the hands of Grazer not interupt much on football management.
United lost just one of their first 17 fixtures, drawing two and winning 14.

During the same period Chelsea lost two and drew three, winning 12 to give United a five-point lead.

Chelsea won nine straight games starting on 31 January - their longest winning streak of the season. United responded with seven consecutive victories of their own before losing to Portsmouth. but chelsea lose momentum by draw to new castle and bolton.

with the above factor, man utd win the title.
For me, Jose Mourinho is the good manager if abramovich not interrupt him . As a boss , you shouldn't buy player according to your interest but must based on manager preference. i think chelsea will be a hard shell if mourinho is giving the authority and shechenko will play a better game .

a 1-1 draw + champion for man utd

a good games played by arsenal and a lot of superb save from lehmann secure a draw for arsenal.Chelsea found themselves a man and a goal down after Khalid Boularouz was sent off for fouling Julio Baptista. Gilberto Silva put away the penalty .Chelsea still manage to pull a equiliser with one man down by a header from essien. they failed to score a winnin g goal.
It means a champion for man utd. Boss Sir Alex Ferguson has won the Premiership nine times during his 21-year reign. A remarkable record for him. Although man utd loss 3-0 to milan. They still proved they are the strongest in primier league.

Arsenal Drew 1-1 with middlesbrough

Arsenal were forced to come from behind again at their new Emirates Stadium to rescue a point against Middlesbrough.
James Morrison curled in on 21 minutes after a one-two with Jason Euell - and keeper Mark Schwarzer kept Boro ahead with a number of fine saves.
But skipper George Boateng sent off on 64 minutes for two cautions and then Thierry Henry scored from the spot after Emanuel Eboue was fouled.
Arsenal poured forward after that but middlesbrough can withstood the intense pressure.
The result leaves Arsenal still searching for their first Premiership win of the season and was a world away from the 7-0 thrashing they handed Boro the last time they met in London.
Arsenal title race is going to ended early if other team remain winning

Cahill and Johnson crash Liverpool 3-0

A totally unbelievable result . A poor defence at left flank of Liverpool let go the two goal in first half. A slow defence which cannot cope with the right wing of everton.A cross from right side with a close range finishing by Cahill gives Everton a lead at 23 minutes of first half.Johnson added a goal second 12 minutes later. A fumbled goalkeeping by Reina gives Johnson a goal at injury times second half. Few chance for Liverpool is wasted.
So a surprising lose for Liverpool.

Liverpool vs Everton Who will win?

Everyone wonder who will win the game? I think Liverpool will win it not because I am Liverpool fan. Statistically, Crouch is on form scoring in every game in national level.Last season they won 3-1 for both games.Although Everton look sharp in this season . I don't see a lose to liverpool and a draw is a upset for Liverpool.
Guess it .The score will be 2-1
