Liverpool v Newcastle United
Time to break the Anfield hoodoo!
Venue: Anfield, Liverpool.
Date: Sunday, 4th November.
Kick off: 4:00pm
Referee: Anthony Taylor (Manchester).
UK TV: Sky Sports.

Hello, good afternoon and welcome to our “match banter” feature for this afternoon’s away game against the Scousers.

As you may know already, Anfield has been an awful hunting ground for the Magpies in recent times, and you’d have to go back to the the days of the permed one’s “Entertainers” to find our last victory on the red side of Merseyside, and even that was in the League Cup! That was a 0-1 fourth round victory on Wednesday 29th November, 1995. Some of you will also remember that this was also the year which saw the first of two classic 3-4 Premiership encounters at Anfield (with the next one happening the season after). The first one, in April 1996, is of course regarded by many as one of the finest Premiership games ever, and was only settled with a goal by Stan Collymore in the second minute of stoppage time. For our last Premiership victory, you have to go all the way back to 16 April 1994, when we chalked up a 0-2 victory with Andy Cole and Rob Lee doing the honours on that occaision. Andy Cole scored a total of 41 goals in 46 games that season, which wasn’t a bad effort. (more…)

Kick-Off: 7:45pm.
Referee: Lee Probert.

Hello, good evening and welcome to our regular match banter for this evening’s game, which sees the Magpies travelling to Anfield once again to meet Liverpool in a battle for sixth place.

For a more in depth look forward to the game, you can always check out Hugh’s excellent match preview, where you can check up on all the latest team news, squads, stats and stuff like that.

Of course, at least some of the focus this evening will be on ex Toon striker Andy Carroll, who was sold to this evening’s opposition in highly controversial circumstances 11 months ago. With his fellow striker Luis Suarez suspended for one game after giving Fulham fans the finger during Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat at Craven Cottage earlier this month, Carroll should be almost certain to start this evening. It will be interesting to see if he is still the victim of Toon boo boys now it has been revealed that both Derek Llambias and Alan Pardew misled fans over the circumstances of his departure in January.
