Liverpool FC - Carling Cup Champions 2012

We won our first trophy in 6 years...!! The last one being the 2006 FA CUP. This is the first silverware for Kenny Dalglish in his second tenure at the club.

It was an exciting match with the underdogs Cardiff City taking the lead and holding it to the half time break. Martin Skrtel levelled on the hour and it stayed that way for the 90 minutes.

We thought we had won it in extra time when substitute Dirk Kuyt smashed home an instinctive shot that had come his way the from City defence. However 10 minutes later with only 2 minutes on the clock Cardiff bundled home to make it 2-2.

Penalties ensued with Steven Gerrard missing the first one for Liverpool. There were then a few misses by both sides before the score was 3-2 to Liverpool with 1 pen left.

Up stepped Anthony Gerrard (Steven's Cousin). He connected well but slotted wide and it was all over. Liverpool had won..!!

Next on the agenda is the FA CUP which is at the quarter final stage. Liverpool have a good draw and will be one of the favourites to bag that one too..!!

GL Guys.
