Larger Trophy Case For Anfield

As they'd holler at a Topeka Corvette Club awards presentation, "More gold!"

Liverpool seem to need all the time that the rules allow. The Reds were able to snatch victory from CSKA Moscow, 3-1, to win the UEFA Super Cup. The match was eerily similar to the Champions League Final vs. AC Milan last spring, with Liverpool going throughout the motions until it was almost too late, and then exploit a snoozing side in extra time.

The man of the match was clearly Djibril Cisse, who scrounged two goals and added a perfect cross to set up Luis Garcia for the Liverpool's third. I couldn't tell from the broadcast, but it seems that the crowd in Monaco was chanting Michel Owen's name, which could be exactly what made Cisse a one-man team in the last 20 minutes.

On another note; Fulham 1, Everton 0.
