Post Match RAW: WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN

Trev Downey and Dave Hendrick have lasted in their RAW posts until the last game of the season because The Reds have been magnificent and Jürgen Klopp has worked wonders. In Kiev, an already stretched squad was shorn of it’s talisman after 30 minutes and it took two acts of incredible self-sabotage for the greatest squad in Europe to beat them. Trev and Dave reflect on the loss and look forward to the brightness in the future …

 On the latest Anfield Index Podcast, Trev Downey, Karl Coppack and Kam Brainch tackle the emotive issues around the Champions League Final, from the hubris of Real Madrid, to the Reds “collective” mentality and approach, to the self-confessed “drama”-junkie that is Jürgen Klopp and even surviving the blanket media coverage.

Reds can hold heads high after Kiev defeat

Reds can hold heads high after Kiev defeat

So the final that we all looked forward to with bated breath didn't quite turn out as hoped. But there was no shame in losing to Madrid in the manner we did. Even in defeat, the signs were there that this team is already hitting new levels. After a brave start to the game where we looked to take the game to Madrid in a controlled and composed manner, Madrid struck the first blow. In his usual cynical manner, Sergio …

Player Ratings as Kiev proves one step too far for Liverpool

We'll always have the memories of this campaign, even if we haven't got the trophy. The travels, the songs, the goals. There will be greater words filled with more sorrow and dejection than that written in the days and weeks to come, but they're my sentiments to you Reds this evening. Here are the ratings from Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool. Nobody will feel worse than Karius Loris Karius (3): You've got to feel for the lad, regardless of your personal thoughts …
Nearly (First) Mission Accomplished for Jurgen Klopp

Nearly (First) Mission Accomplished for Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp’s self-ascribed objective of transforming Liverpool’s fan-base from “doubters to believers” has proven one of the most oft-repeated quotes in a regime marked by memorable soundbites. It was never going to be an easy task, and even as he led his side to consecutive top-four finishes (no mean feat given the unprecedented strength of the so-called ‘big six’) and developed a scintillating brand of attacking football, the doubters continued to question his every move, falling conspicuously silent during a …
The Joy Of Hubris: Liverpool v Real Madrid

The Joy Of Hubris: Liverpool v Real Madrid

In some ways this is all to do with Gini Wijnaldum. Last May he broke down the Anfield right and slotted a vital goal past Middlesbrough’s Brad Guzan to calm Red nerves and put us on the way to Champions League qualification. He was then pretty quiet for the intervening months save for a goal against Huddersfield Town. Eleven months from that Boro strike, however, he finally delivered a goal away from home. He chose the second leg of the …

Can a Year of Drama be Punctuated by One Decisive Night?

From entertaining spectacles on the pitch, embarrassments off of it; Liverpool has been a bigger source for drama than Netflix lately. Will the Champions League final test our cardiovascular health once more or could the punctuation mark on this season be a decisive one? Jurgen Klopp and his team appear so relaxed in the lead up to the final it almost looks artificial, posing for stock-photo worthy pics by the beach in Marbella. That laid-back demeanour is surprising as Liverpool …

A team with an esteemed European history, Kiev will be Liverpool’s first final in 11 years and their eighth overall, drawing them level with Barcelona – behind only AC Milan, Bayern Munich and this year’s opponents, Real Madrid.

Jürgen Klopp’s gung-ho philosophy has seen Liverpool score a multitude of goals this season, both domestically and in Europe with a fiery …

While there is definite truth in this, with the Reds and Los Blancos famed for possessing world-class attacking talent, it is …
