How do you rate Liverpool's performance against Aston Villa? The magic moment for me was Steven Gerrard's free kick to win the match for Liverpool. Babbel was brilliant after coming on as a substitute. But, Liverpool's central defence and it's lack of ability to handle the ariel threat posed by Carew was a big letdown. So what was your opinion of Day -1 of the new season? Cheers! Ram

You are right, the best moment from the game had to be Steven Gerrard's beautifully curled free kick that gave the Aston Villa keeper no chance to save it. However, i feel the penalty awarded to Aston Villa was too cheap. Carragher should have cleared the ball instead of messing around. I didn't watch the whole game, only in bits and pieces. At the end of the day, it's a win for Liverpool that stands out. :)

Yep, I think Carragher had actually completely given up competing with Carew in the air. It was really disappointing to see that as now more teams in the Premier League would try to exploit this weaknesses!! Cheers! Ram
