That, however, is not how this game
will be remembered by those who were here. This night will instead
linger in the memory for the drama, farce and unpredictability that
formed the central part of its narrative.
Liverpool, destined for Wembley a Burberry Bags 2014 nd
an FA Cup semi final with Everton at the weekend, began the evening with
damage limitation in mind.
With six players rested, this was a
night when Kenny Dalglish’s men were clearly under orders not to do
anything silly. Somehow, though, the Carling Cup winners managed to have
their second choice goalkeeper Alexander Doni sent off in the firstHe will now be replaced at Wembley by
their No 3 Burberry Bags 2014 Brad Jones, the 30 year old Australian who came on in his
place and whose last start was against Utrecht in the Europa League in
December 2010. Jones’s first touch was to save a penalty but, later on, he too came within a whisker of being sent off.
