Steve Sidwell or ‘the flame-haired star’ as the one report on the official site calls him (!) says Liverpool is the perfect place to turn things around.

‘It’s going to be very tough. Even if you go there with the strongest team, good confidence or good form it’s still tough to come away with points. But what a place to go and get your season back on track. We’ve got a good squad, a talented squad and players there who can win matches. So I’m sure if we stick to our game plan we can come away with at least a point. But Liverpool have always been up there and always been a top team.’

Adding, again on the official site, how important it is to get the season back on track and is sure we’ll be back up and competing.

‘It’s been a tough opening. The most important thing at every football club is that you want to get off to a good start, especially in the Barclays Premier League and in Europe. It hasn’t happened to us but we are a good young vibrant side and we can deal with it.’
