    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.

    1) Cheesecake 44 points -> still Running away!! SONG!
    2) jfoo 36 points

    BABEL HOPES TO EMULATE HENRY




    Liverpool winger Ryan Babel believes he can become even better than his idol Thierry Henry.

    Babel, who scored Liverpool's fourth goal in their midweek UEFA Champions League victory over Arsenal, says he can emulate Henry's success by reverting from a winger to a striker.

    The Dutch international has shown glimpses of his undoubted quality at Anfield this season since his big-money move from Ajax last summer.

    Babel has been likened to Barcelona star Henry by Holland coach Marco van Basten and the 21-year-old says he is hoping to convince Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez to utilise him in a forward role.

    "Henry is an idol for me," Babel told The Mirror.

    "I used to watch a lot of him on TV because he plays up front and I like to look at how he plays and what kind of decisions he makes at key moments.

    "Like me, he started also as a winger before he joined Arsenal. Benitez knows I like to play up front though, and hopefully one day he will give me the chance to play there and for me to focus on my favourite position.

    "I'm trying to do the same as Henry by moving from winger to play inside.

    "I try to improve my game so hopefully one day I'll be the same or maybe even better than the level Henry reached.

    "I hope to give the manager another choice upfront and even after training I spend half an hour practising something extra such as my finishing or control to reach that level."

    Babel admitted the Liverpool players are focused on winning the Champions League to make up for another disappointing Premier League campaign.

    "Our focus is on the Champions League," added Babel. "The title's not possible and we must try to end up in the top four instead. It's disappointing as a lot of people expected a great deal of Liverpool this year but we haven't improved on the last few years.

    "If we win the Champions League though, then for a lot of fans the season would be good. But if at the end we have nothing it would be very disappointing."

    RAFA PLANS A MYSTERY TO HUGHES




    Blackburn manager Mark Hughes will not tie himself up in knots trying to second-guess Liverpool counterpart Rafael Benitez's team changes for Saturday's encounter at Anfield.

    The Rovers boss knows it is a futile gesture trying to predict who the Spaniard will bring in and leave out - especially after a thrilling but tough midweek Champions League tie against Arsenal which the Reds won 4-2 to progress to the semi-finals.

    He will instead concentrate on his own side's strengths as they still retain an interest in the race for UEFA Cup football next season.

    "It is difficult to gauge whether their performance in midweek was a good thing or a bad thing for us," said Hughes, who revealed his one regret during his playing career was never scoring at the Kop end at Anfield.

    "We could have done with extra-time to tire them out somewhat but maybe the hope is they celebrated long into the night after it.

    "Rafa will no doubt make a number of changes from the personnel he used the other night, that is usually the norm, which makes it a little bit more difficult to prepare for because you are never quite sure which personnel you are going to face.

    "You can second-guess to a certain extent - the likelihood is key players who have played two or three games back to back may well not be involved.

    "You can make educated guesses but whether they are the right guesses is open to debate.

    "But whoever plays for Liverpool you are always guaranteed it is a player of good quality and it will be a difficult game for us - it always is.

    "The key from our point of view is that we concentrate on what we are going to do."

    The outcome of Rovers' next two matches could prove crucial to their hopes of securing European football.

    After the trip to Anfield Blackburn host Manchester United but with the side currently eighth in the Barclays Premier League two defeats could end UEFA Cup ambitions - even via the Intertoto Cup.

    "We are still fighting to get that European place outright and if we can get results in the next two games we have three matches (Portsmouth, Derby and Birmingham) which we want to get maximum points from," said Hughes.

    "Where we stand at the moment, if we don't pick up any more points we won't qualify.

    "We need more points on the board and that means we need to win Premier League games - if it happens at the weekend we don't mind.

    "We have a couple of games coming up which the players will need no motivation for and we approach them with no apprehension.

    "We are looking to realise our ambitions and there is a lot riding on the next couple of games for us.

    "We are still in the mix so until it is mathematically impossible to achieve a UEFA Cup place outright we will keep going.

    "If we are honest with ourselves the realistic opportunity for us will be in the Intertoto but we will keep going.

    "If we get three wins and get to 60 points we would have had a real go at it and will not be a million miles away from the targets we set ourselves at the beginning of the season."

    Rovers goalkeeper Brad Friedel believes all the pressure will be on his former club, who he claims should be contesting the Premier League title.

    "I think the so-called 'top four club stuff' means the fans, board and players will always want to win and as years go by without the league being won there is a bit of added pressure," said the 36-year-old who left Anfield in November 2000.

    "They have the resources to win the league, they have the players to win the league and they have a good manager.

    "It just comes down to consistent form, a little bit of luck - it comes down to a lot of things that have to fall into place."

    On Sunday Friedel and his defence are likely to come up against red-hot striker Fernando Torres, who struck the 29th goal of his maiden season in England against Arsenal in midweek.

    However, the American believes there is more to Liverpool than just the Spain international.

    "Torres is a tremendous player but he is not the only one in that team who is very good," he said.

    Striker Jason Roberts (groin) and midfielder David Dunn (groin) face fitness tests ahead of the Anfield match.
