happy new year everyone!!!  
Emiliano Insua hopes today will mark the start of him fulfilling a lifelong footballing dream - playing at Wembley in an FA Cup final.

The Argentine, who turns 21 next week, could line-up in our third round clash at Reading on Saturday tea-time.

And he hopes it will be one of many Cup appearances this term as the Reds look to claim their first piece of silverware since 2006.

Insua said: "We are all so disappointed we haven't done better in the league, the Champions League and the Carling Cup but we have another opportunity to change things in the FA Cup.

"It's very important for a club like Liverpool to be competing for trophies. We have got to keep fighting and we know it is going to be very difficult against Reading, because they will see this as an opportunity. We have got to be ready.

"We want to celebrate the New Year with a win that will hopefully be the first on the way to Wembley. Last year I was disappointed to miss all those games against Everton because I was away on international duty.

"This year we are all determined to go many rounds further than we have done in the past couple of seasons.

"The FA Cup is special; everybody around the world knows about its prestige and its history.

"After the Premier League, it's the one competition every team wants to win. First we have to try and beat Reading and make sure we are in the next round. To play at Wembley would be a dream - hopefully it's one that will come true this year."

Insua has been one of Liverpool's stand-out performers as the club has recorded back-to-back wins over Wolves and Aston Villa.

And he insists he and his teammates are now in good spirits as they prepare for crucial games against Reading and top-four rivals Tottenham next weekend.

"It was an important win at Villa," Insua said. "They are fighting with us for fourth place but we made ourselves difficult to break down, we started the game with confidence and things started to pick up from there. It was fantastic to score in the last minute.

"That was the kind of performance we have to keep producing but we feel much better now and we will keep going. We have been trying all season to win some games in a row but now we have got two wins, we have to keep it going.

"Hopefully this will mean we will start to play better, that we'll have more confidence and will start to climb the league. Once we have played against Reading we can start to look forward to the Tottenham game. It's crucial that we beat them."
