Reports are out that late last night Andy Carroll was once again caught on video, marauding around an establishment, swilling alcohol from a cup; surrounded by a number of other fellow Liverpool players. Andy Carroll is no stranger to bad publicity, but it seems this time he has led a number of team mates down that same path.
The incident in question happened yesterday, in a well known establishment in London. Video can be seen here:
This time though, there won’t be anybody out there slating him for doing it 😀
Yes after a relatively long wait, Liverpool are finally back to their old winning ways, and they’re doing so at Wembley for the first time since Ian Rush last played for them. There may not have been any white Armani suits this time, but there was definitely a degree of drama. Once again Liverpool fell behind to a “lower team”, and once again Liverpool struggle to break through a well organised defence. They certainly created opportunities but they once again struggled to convert those chances. That meant that after 90 minutes, the scores remained level at 1 all.
Extra time brought some more drama, with Dirk Kuyt coming on and putting Liverpool in the lead. He then cleared off the line, but the following moments saw Cardiff once again pull level, and so it was onto penalties. Liverpool’s 5 penalty takers were to be Stevie G, Charlie Adam, Dirk Kuyt, Stewart Downing, Glenn Johnson; and they would be taken towards the Liverpool fans. This is what happened:
My heart was pounding throughout this, especially when Adam missed his so badly (actually the first thing I did was think Adam you tit), and Cardiff scored, but in the end 3 well taken penalties from Dirk, Downing and Johnson led to this:
It also led to the celebrations above in the Wembley changing room.
That now means that my son has seen Liverpool lift a trophy every 3 and a half months since he was born. Long may that run continue 😀
