Anfield, 13 September 2008
7.40p.m. Malaysian time

The most awaited fixture of the season is finally here. I can't wait to see LFC beat Man Utd at home turf. It is interesting to see how Rafa the chessmaster overcome Alex this time as he failed to do it for three seasons running (in the league, at least, as we won the FA Cup contest). No Gerrard, no Torres, Keane have to be at his very best to get through Fergie's chessmen. If I were the LFC manager, I would play the wing attack against Man Utd's tough Sicilian Scheveningen (just to stay within chess terms and territorries), pushing my g and h pawns up to shatter their defense. So, my g pawn (Albert Riera) and h pawn (Dirk Kuyt) should supply the much needed ammonition to the centre pawns (Robbie Keane and Ryan Babel) to produce the checkmate! It means I have to postpone my Terawikh prayer tomorrow night.
