Both Grabbi and Yorke get yellow cards for dissent, after an offside call by the AR.
Diao about to make his Liverpool debut.
Souness is pissed off, gets sent off from the bench. Sent to the showers.
Diao on, Riise on.
Three minutes of stoppage, which we've entered.
Murphy trips Duff up, yellow given, and a free kick in a nice position for Blackburn.
Grabbi shot, over the bar. Never dipped.
Not a single save for Friedel. Probably lucky to take a point from this one.
Thanks for the play-by-play.
No problem; I know it's not as detailed as others like to do here at BS, but I enjoy watching the match, instead of the monitor.
Sounds like it was a good game. Thanks for the updates.
Friedel had no chance at all on either goal. None. He was left out to dry on both goals. I don't see how Friedel not making any saves has anything to do with being lucky. You can't save what's not humanly reachable.
Lucky for Liverpool. Probably Blackburn coming from behind twice was the lucky part.
i wouldn't really say either team was lucky to get the draw, it seemed a very fair (if disappointing) result. these are the types of points liverpool can't afford to drop if they want to win the title.
Keller would have saved both of those shots!!!
C'mon...someone had to say it!
Blackburn (Dunn) scored first in minute 16.
I meant Blackburn was lucky to get the point, having to come back and all.
Gotcha! Have to agree.
I agree, Blackburn was somewhat lucky to get a point from this match....but you have to admit that the with the second Liverpool goal was misjudged by Big Bad Brad. You could see the disappointment in Brad on that one. That was the fish that got away from Brad.
I don't think Blackburn were all that lucky to simply get a point. They came back well and Grabbi actually looked excellent the whole time he was on (more dangerous than Yorke & Cole, actually). Riise's goal was excellent and Friedel had no chance. BF had the angle covered and that was the only possible way he could've been beaten -- a 1 in 100 shot, I think.
Also, the way Blackburn were pressing in the last 10 minutes, I think they were a little unlucky not to pull that one out.
A number of posters on the Blackburn boards think that Riise's goal was accidental, in the sense that he was not actually trying to make that play (a couple of people said that they thought his real intention was to cross the ball, rather than put it on net), but the ball just bounced right for him.
Not having seen it myself, I have no idea.
Maybe, but he's a damn smart and skillful player. I wouldn't be surprised if he intended to do it.
He was all the way to one side of the (24 feet wide, remember) goal, which was proper positioning, and then the ball was headed into pretty much the upper 90 on the opposite side. I don't know whether or not he misjudged it, but it's like an outfielder misjudging a ball hit 10 rows up into the bleachers.
It wouldn't matter anyway.
I think a tie was the logical conclusion to this game. I definitely don't think either deserved to win as they both wasted good posessions. Both teams had their moments, both had good posession in their forward 3rd, but both also had runs of sloppy play and giveaways (Tugay and Gerrard being the main culprits). However, all 4 goals were brilliant finishes. A great game of one-upsmanship...Blackburn scores on a brilliant low cross, so Liverpool follows suit, Liverpool scores on an improbable header...as does Blackburn. Johannson stuffs Owen in the box, Henchoz stuffs Duff in the box. A great rivalry game. If these 2 teams live up to their potential, you will see them facing off in some cup matches this year, and probably fighting each other in the top 6.
Duffer in for 4 more years too!!!
