    FA Cup Semi-Finalists Cardiff City have released Robbie Fowler from his contract.

    Furthermore, Rafa Benitez has seized upon this opportunity to re-sign Fowler to partner Fernando Torres in Liverpool's attempt to re-shape their formation back to the traditional 4 - 4 - 2.

    Cardiff manager Dave Jones told icWales "Robbie hasn't had as many opportunities this year as we would have liked. The fact that he puts in a lot of effort in training should be commended but we thought that it would be best for all concerned if we let him go".

    Chairman Peter Ridsdale, who is involved in a legal battle with a Swiss Bank in terms repayment of a massive loan, is rumoured to have authorised the release because of Fowler's huge wage package.

    Fowler is due on Merseyside later today to complete his permanent deal. Although he wont be ready in time for Liverpool's game against Arsenal tomorrow, he may be ready for the return to the Emirates in the league on Saturday.

    Steven Gerrard is quoted as being delighted at the opportunity

    Correct Score Prediction = 3points!

    Correct 1st Scorer for LFC = 1point!

    Correct Last Scorer for LFC = 1point!

    Hat-Trick Hero Perfect Guess Guess Guess! = 5points!

    so in any game, the max point a participant can net is a total of 10points.


    Sorting Out the Grey Areas.

    1). in the event of 1-0 end result, the 1st scorer will be taken as the last scorer even though the participant might haf anticipated 2-0 or 22-0 and haf listed someone else as the last scorer.

    2). the prediction is good till the Final Whistle, which includes Extra-time but not Penalty Shootout.


    Current standings:

    1) Cheesecake 31 points
    2) roadrunner 29 points

    POOL OWNERS REFUSE TO SIT TOGETHER




    Liverpool's bickering American owners have reportedly asked not to be seated next to each other for the Champions League clash with Arsenal on Wednesday night.

    The Guardian reports that Tom Hicks and George Gillett are not prepared to present the appearance of a united front that doesn't exist, and have requested that their allocations of tickets are nowhere near each other at the Emirates.

    Neither man has been to a Liverpool match since the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United in December, and since then their relationship has deteriorated beyond salvation.

    Indeed, Gillett admitted as such in a radio interview last week, in which he said the relationship between himself and Hicks had been 'unworkable' for some time.

    Hicks vetoed the sale of Gillett's stake in the club to Dubai International Capital earlier in the month, but while The Guardian reports that representatives from DIC are expected to be at the game, no meeting is anticipated.

    Torres ready to shoot down Gunners


    In-form Liverpool striker Fernando Torres is full of confidence and has Arsenal in his sights in tomorrow's Champions League quarter-final.

    The Spain international has scored 11 goals in his last 10 matches - including the winner in Sunday's Merseyside derby - and has found the net four times in his previous four European outings.

    Torres has 28 goals for the season and would dearly like to score at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow to give Liverpool an important advantage heading into the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final.

    'The first game at the Emirates will be very difficult. The most important thing is to score - if we score it is very good for the Anfield game but Arsenal play very well and it is very difficult to win,' he said.

    'They won a very difficult game on Saturday (beating Bolton 3-2 with 10 men) but we have confidence again now and we have the confidence to go and win against Arsenal.'

    The team produced the perfect response to the defeat to Manchester United a week last Sunday by claiming derby day bragging rights thanks to Torres' solitary strike.

    And that goal, which saw him become only the fifth player in the club's history to score in six successive home games, has boosted the Spaniard ahead of tomorrow's crucial encounter.

    'Whenever you have a bad result, you need a big game with a good result,' added the 24-year-old. 'Every player is over the Manchester United result and the important thing is to win.

    'Now we have an important game coming against Arsenal and six games in the league.'

    If there is anything Torres needs to add to what has been a stunning debut season in England it is the ability to score regularly away from home.

    So far 19 of his 21 league goals have come at Anfield, with 15 of those coming in front of the Kop.

    Torres admits he is more comfortable playing at home but cannot explain why.

    'I always feel confident that I can score at Anfield. I've got 19 Premier League goals here now which is fantastic for me, and I seem to score most of those in front of the Kop,' he said.

    'I don't know why that is, but I'm always scoring at that end. It must be something about the stand, it is just different. I always feel confident when I'm facing that end of the pitch.'

    Despite the majority of Torres' goals coming at home, Liverpool's legendary record goalscorer Ian Rush believes the Spaniard has the necessary credentials to become feared across Europe.

    'Torres has something that can make him really special,' said Rush. 'When you've got pace and can kick with both feet, like he can, you are always going to cause the opposition problems.

    'Defenders don't actually know which foot he is going to kick with. That's what makes him special. He has been a revelation.'

    Rush believes Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will play his usual tactical game against Arsenal and will probably look to win the tie back at Anfield.

    'I think the game will be really tight and Liverpool will have the advantage simply because of the second leg,' he told uefa.com.

    'I think they will go to Arsenal in the first game and just try to contain them. If you let Arsenal play, they're a joy to watch and I feel Liverpool's job will be to try and stop them playing.

    'If they can get a draw, I think they can win back at Anfield. The atmosphere and the support Liverpool will have there will give them a head start.'

    Gerrard calls on Liverpool's fear factor


    Captain Steven Gerrard believes Liverpool are the team feared by others in the Champions League.

    The five-time European champions face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow in a quarter-final first leg.

    Although the Gunners have dominated their domestic clashes in recent seasons - with Liverpool winning just three times in the last seven years - Gerrard believes European matches are a different prospect.

    And he pointed to the Reds' Champions League victory over AC Milan in 2005 and appearance in the final again last season as proof of their credentials.

    'We are a good side in Europe and we are always confident whoever we come up against we can qualify,' he said. 'I think other teams are more concerned about us because we have proved over the last two or three years we are one of the best sides in the competition.

    'We have nothing to fear - just go there full of confidence and give it our best shot.'

    Confidence is high after Sunday's victory in the 207th Merseyside derby, which Gerrard believes was the ideal preparation for facing English opponents in the Champions League.

    'A big derby win and the fans are happy and the players are happy,' said the England midfielder. 'It is going to be a really tough game (against Arsenal) but we are looking forward to it now and go into it full of confidence.'

    Gerrard would have preferred to be facing less familiar opposition - the teams faced each other four times in the league, FA and Carling Cups last season and will, by a quirk of the fixture list, also play in the Barclays Premier League this weekend.

    However, he accepts it is just another hurdle to overcome.

    'Before the draw was made you are looking for a team in (continental) Europe but you get what you are given and to win this cup you have to beat the best,' added the 27-year-old.

    'When we won it in 2005 we had to beat all the best teams so I'm sure we will have to do it again.

    'If you look at our games against Chelsea (they played the Blues three successive seasons in the Champions League) they were slightly different from the league games.

    'It is a cup competition and it is different from playing for three points. I'm sure it will be different but we know we are in for two very tough games.'

    Gerrard is also hopeful Arsenal's faint Premier League title hopes will mean they are not fully focused on European glory.

    The Gunners stayed in the race for the title on Saturday after coming from 2-0 down to beat Bolton 3-2 with 10 men.

    'They have one more thing to play for. Had they not won maybe it would have made it more difficult for us. Now they have still got half a chance in the league maybe that will distract them a bit.'

    Police to probe troubled Merseyside derby


    Police will speak to Liverpool and Everton about alleged incidents in Sunday's acrimonious Merseyside derby.

    Officers are investigating claims Toffees captain Phil Neville was spat on and punched by Liverpool fans as he prepared to take a throw-in.

    They are also looking at reports Anfield skipper and England international Steven Gerrard was subjected to hate-filled chants about his daughter.

    Cameras clearly captured Neville, who was targeted for being a former Manchester United player, being abused by several fans in the second half of Liverpool's 1-0 victory.

    As Neville, whose brother Gary still plays for United, prepared to take a throw supporters could be seen just inches away screaming down his neck.

    And Gerrard faced a torrent of abuse as he walked to take a corner in front of visiting fans in the second half.

    ``Police will be speaking to the clubs involved today,' said a spokesman for Merseyside Police said.

    Dave Lewis, the force's football liaison officer, who travels abroad with the teams when they play in Europe, will conduct the discussions.

    Everton spokesman Ian Ross said: ``We felt it necessary to try to involve the safety officers and police because we cannot have a situation where supporters are having physical contact with professional footballers during the game.

    ``We want to make sure that doesn't happen again at the Merseyside derby or any other game.'

    Responding to Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez's comments that he was ``very disappointed' by the abuse aimed at Gerrard, he added: ``Whilst we would never condone the singling out of individual players for vitriolic insults, it is a shame that Mr Benitez chose to ignore the actions of his own club's supporters.

    ``Not only was Joleon Lescott subjected to an afternoon-long barrage of quite disgusting and quite audible abuse, Phil Neville was seemingly spat at several times and was also punched in the back by a supporter as he took a throw-in.

    ``We have asked Merseyside Police and our safety officer to look into the matter.

    ``In calling for Everton supporters to respect his players, Mr Benitez should, perhaps, remember his comments of 12 months ago when he sought to belittle one of world sport's oldest and most respected institutions by describing us as a `small club'.

    ``Respect is a two-way street.'
