Liverpool v Brighton Preview - Key Battles

It is the last game of the season, and Liverpool have their Top 4 destiny in their own hands. However, it is something that the Reds should have signed off and sealed a few weeks ago.

David Wagner's Huddersfield did Liverpool a huge …

The Bobby Dazzler Gets Just Rewards for a Stellar Season

So, a video wherein a contract was signed without looking, and said person proceeded to leave the room whistling ‘Allez Allez Allez’. Liverpool’s announcement of Roberto Firmino extending his contract for five more years was about as Roberto Firmino as it could get. Firmino isn’t about being normal. Be it his role on the pitch, his importance to Jurgen Klopp’s systems, the no-look finishes, the Kung-Fu kicks and the dances in celebrations, it’s almost like Roberto Firmino is there to …

Let's get the cliche out of the way first - These are the nights that we live for!  A Champions League semifinal night is coming to Anfield for the first time in ten years, and even Roma would be daft to expect anything other than a raucous, relentless night in the stands.

Terrific Trident, and a Sensational Scouser - Reds Thrash Bournemouth 3-0

Any suggestions that the foot might be taken off the Premier League pedal were emphatically blown away at Anfield as Liverpool got themselves a routine 3-0 win against Bournemouth. Each of that fantastic front three found themselves on the scoresheet, as Eddie Howe's side were put to the sword by a Liverpool side who really didn't have to get out of second gear for the most part. The Reds have now scored 121 goals in all competitions this season, the …

Liverpool and that Semi-final feeling again

Liverpool and that Semi-final feeling again

When I watched Ryan Babel sprint past a tired Cesc Fabregas to finish off an incredible Champions League night, little did I know it was going to take me that long to experience that feeling again. That feeling! That feeling of being in the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League. That feeling is back again, thanks to a bunch of heroes led by Jurgen Klopp. That feeling is just made all the more special by the happenings of the last ten …
