Liverpool 1 – 2 Blackpool FT

Wow, we managed to hang on in the second half and take all three points in an amazing afternoon of football at Anfield beating Liverpool 2-1. Yes we beat Liverpool 2-1!!!

Back to a strong line up with Campbell, Varney and GTF upfront, we were set out from the start to attack. The first half we had loads of possession and deserved the two goal lead.

Once again Varney cutting in from the flank won the pen, similar to the Newcastle game, same outcome from the spot from Charlie.

The second was a great breakaway goal with Varney hitting the back of the net. Let’s hope we have a pre agreed fee for him!

Second half Liverpool were always going to come at us, it was a puzzling decision for the foul and disappointing we let them take the kick quickly from which the grabbed one back.

After that the home side huffed and puffed but didn’t really test Gilks too much, bar one effort in injury time. Cole and Ngog ahold have scored with efforts they both put wide.

We even nearly managed to grab a third on the break. Phillips did well at rightback, as did Keinen. However withs Baps injured and now injuries to Cathcart and Eardley it’s not looking good for our next match.

Once again Mike Jones was appalling as the man in Black. Gerrard, Meireles should have been booked with Kyrgiakos seeing red for a second booking.

Overall a really great day out, great performance and another big step towered survival.

    will as blackpool fan living in liverpool for the past 20 yrs i went to anfield with my son a liverpool fan, bet 7/1 for a blackpool win, and the dream came true! Liverpool fans know a good team when the see one hence the massive round of applause for the seasiders at the end. Blackpool are like a bumblebee, a bumblebee is not suppose to be able fly, but nobody has told the bee! Blackpool are not suppose to win at a big club like Liverpool but the club obviously does not believe, liverpools problem was they did believe it!

    I will be at Goodison next the seasiders are in town!

    Blackpool are such a crappy little club they cannot even sell their own allocation of tickets for big home games like Man CITY. DO YOU SEE…..you’re in the wrong league….league one is where you belong and league is where you shall return, Mr Sandypants.
    Alll the worst,
