It appears Linda Pizzuti is fast becoming the not-so-secret weapon for Liverpool Football Club, after watching two consecutive Reds wins at Anfield. The wife of Red Sox and LFC owner John Henry has quickly earned the moniker 'Lucky Linda'.

The 31-year-old Pizzuti endeared herself to LFC fans last week when she asked them on Twitter what songs she should learn to chant during the matches.

The First Post reported last week, the LFC fans will want to see more of Pizzuti at the Kop:

As one correspondent in the press box at Anfield commented last night, "She'd better be prepared to fly over for every match. The Kop needed a new lucky mascot after Liverpool's dreadful start to the season. They're not going to let her go now."

After Liverpool's impressive 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday, Pizzuti tweeted:

"We had some Red Sox folks there for their first match & they were also blown away by the passion, humor, and power of LFC supporters... Didn't believe it was possible, but Anfield was even more electric and exciting than what I got to experience on Thursday...

No word yet on whether Pizzuti will be on hand tomorrow when Liverpool takes on Wigan Athletic at DW Stadium tomorrow.
