Yesterday was the day when the two Giants of Football met for the first time this season.I say, two giants because Liverpool are going through a transitional period that is being hampered by the on-going off the field antics by our so-called owners

It was one of those days on Sunday, the rain was teeming down and the omens did not seem to be falling in our favour, but Liverpool being the team that we have all come to love does have a habit of turning the tide when playing against Manchester United.

Roy had picked what he thought was his best first team but immediately there were questions marks hanging over his selection.Joe Cole had returned after serving his three match suspension and should have ideally been on fire, having played Manchester United during his time at Chelsea, but being someone who was sceptical of his appointment, I am still not sure that he will fit into the Liverpool team.There were also the new boys in the team, Konchelsky, Mereiles and Poulsen, who were still finding their feet within the team and I wondered if the occasion would be too much for them.

My questions of course were soon answered.The first half was yet another one of those that every supporter would like to forget.I don’t know where the Liverpool team were for the first 45 minutes but they certainly were not on the pitch.The defense was showing its old frailties and it was a constant struggle to keep the ball away from the net. I don’t know what Glen Johnson or Maxi was doing because they simply did not have any effect on the game.

What happened towards the end of the first half started could have sent many of the visiting Liverpool supporters home early.Berbatov who, last season was ridiculed for his lack of form and interest in the game, scored his first of the afternoon.
It was another of those games were you hoped that the team received a half time rollicking because they certainly needed it.Liverpool kicked off and did seem to be a lot livelier but the goal was still not forthcoming.Torres who I believe is not near to full fitness as yet, tried his best but the service he was receiving was virtually nil and this is something that Roy needs to rectify very quickly.If that means brining in some of the youngsters then so be it.

After making several saves, Reina got caught out yet again by Berbatov and goal number two was in the net. Liverpool’s defence was still not performing as it should have and Roy made his first substitution, bringing on Ngog for Maxi. The shape of the team was quickly changed and it seemed to wake the Liverpool team up. Things were improving slowly and then Liverpool received the lifeline that they needed.

Torres was brought down and Liverpool had a penalty.Stevie G did what Stevie G does best and the score was now 2-1.We were back in the game and it suddenly became more like the Liverpool-Manchester United clashes that we are used to watching.As the half wore on, it was becoming more like a battlefield with Ngog and Scholes both receiving yellow cards.Then came the O’Shea incident, where he was booked for bring down Torres, a lot of people are saying this should have been a red card and not the yellow that he received.We did get a free kick though and Stevie as always stepped up and sent a wonderful ball into the back of the net.The score was now level and it looked as though Liverpool had a chance to turn the game in their favour.

Nobody though had reckoned on Berbatov scoring again, but he did and United went 3-2 up.It was his day and the Liverpool team can only think about what might have been.

There are still many questions to be answered about whether the team is the right one – of course only time will tell but they really do need to step up their game otherwise the dream of re-entry into the Champions League will be just that – a dream.
