And this is why I love our skipper

 Steven Gerrard has spoken of his love for Liverpool FC and revealed he has no regrets about turning down today's opponents Chelsea twice in the past.

"I don't think sacrifice is the right word because I am playing for Liverpool and I am the captain," said Gerrard.

"I wouldn't call that a sacrifice. I would call that living a dream.

My love for this man has now grown to an entirely new level. I love him more than I've ever loved another player and I'm so glad he's with us.

Roy reacts to a most glorious win at Anfield

Roy Hodgson heaped praise on Fernando Torres after his awesome double sank Chelsea on Sunday - but warned against any complacency heading into a critical week in our season.

The Reds climbed to ninth in the Barclays Premier League following the 2-0 win - and with six points available in the next six days, that position could soon look even healthier.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Hodgson shared his delight that Torres proved to be the headline maker after a tough start to the campaign - and now he wants to see more of the same against Wigan and Stoke.

"I'm pleased with the all-round performance and I'm also pleased that Fernando Torres will get a lot of the plaudits," said the boss.

"He's taken more than his fair share of criticism, some of which has been grossly exaggerated and certainly not fully deserved.

"Of course, when the team's not winning it's hard to defend these things but today he'll get a lot of plaudits and people will say he's back to his best. Let's hope that's the case but certainly today he was. He played very, very well.

WHAT AN AMAZING DAY. SERIOUSLY. STILL AMAZED/SHOCKED/ECSTATIC WE WON TODAY. AND IF ANYONE KNOWS WHERE I CAN WATCH THE MATCH PLEASE SHARE WITH ME. But the Agger news makes me so sad. I miss him SO much, and it looks like he'll be out for quite sometime. :/

Let our amazing owner take us out on a magical day with this tweet. YNWA<3

Wonderful interview with our wonderful tattooed midfielder/mandatory hug-giver

'Meireles living in the shadows'

ALSO: video now added under cut
from October 31, 2010

We are sat outside the entrance of one of the principal tourist traps at Liverpool's Albert Docks. As late morning busies into lunchtime, the stylishly attired Liverpool midfielder thoughtfully answers an hour's worth of questions. Not a single supporter from this football-obsessed city sidles up to request an autograph or photo.

Eschewing the modern footballer's favoured mode of transport a couple of weeks back, the World Cup goalscorer took his six-year-old daughter, Lara, on the fast train to London. Not one passenger recognised him, and Raul Meireles loves it this way.

So happy I found this interview! He's so great, definitely deserves this growing LJ fanbase of his lol.

This is my first LJ post in...any community, actually. Please let me know if I need to fix anything :)



Since this seems to be a slow news day and this doesn't really need a whole new post, just wanted to share Meireles' episode of 'O Regresso dos Incríveis' that I found on Youtube!
