========================================================

A sad day in the annals of FC Liverpool comes to a merciful conclusion. Reds alum AVI COHEN was laid to rest in Tel Aviv after a memorial service at the Ramat Gan Stadium in Israel. And Liverpool slumped to a 1-0 loss to the very last-placed team in the whole of the 20-team English Premier League as Wolverhampton Wolves won at Anfield for the first time in 26 years.

Wolverhampton striker STEPHEN WARD, the Irishman switched from defender, scored eleven minutes into the second half to provide Wolves with not just a first road victory in the Premier League this season, but a first win at Anfield since January of 1984.

Slovakia World Cup defender MARTIN SKRTEL did head a late goal for Liverpool, who now stand an unsightly 12th in the Premiership for manager ROY HODGSON, only to see the strike waved off by the linesman’s flag for offsides.
