The season is now officially over! And what a good result to end it all off with. It is a pity we did not keep the clean sheet so that Pepe could have won another Golden Glove. But I think this game was all to do about the farewell to Sami. I was a bit surprised when I saw the starting lineups and saw Sami starting on the bench. I would have thought that Rafa would give him a start today together with the captains armband, but I guess it just goes to show that Rafa really wanted to go out and get the win today to end off the season.
We got off to a great start with Torres clinching his 50th goal for Liverpool with a header. That is some return, 50 goals in two seasons, I see him reaching 100 goals in no time at all. Alan Hutton then made it 2-0 for us in the second half after he deflected a Kuyt shot into his own goal. I think it was written in the script for Robbie Keane to score on his return to Anfield, and he did just that to make it 2-1. But Yossi wrapped up the points with a few minutes to go to make it 3-1 then it was time for Sami to get onto the field. It was a really emotional moment when Stevie came off for him and gave him the armband for the last time. It would have been the perfect ending if Sami had scored with his header from the corner. I don’t know how many times we have seen those headers fly into the net over the last 10 years.
The season is over now and we have to start looking forward to next season and seeing who is leaving the club and who is going to come in. Over the summer OurKop.com will be keeping you updated with all the transfer talk and we will also be looking back to this season that has gone by.
