Klopp, Liverpool, and How Emotion Conquered Perfection

Klopp, Liverpool, and How Emotion Conquered Perfection

Ah, the word “passion.” Somewhat overused in the day and age of exposition, Liverpool Football Club has something of a connection to the idea of pure, unadulterated passion in the vast landscape that is football. Everything is magnified tenfold, because of its relation to everything else in the football sphere.

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 …

It's been a remarkable season for Liverpool, who are likely to secure consecutive Champions League qualifications since 2007-08/08-09 and have had a fantastic run in the Champions League thus far. Instead of merely consolidating the club's top four position, there have been clear signs of improvement and development across both the club and the squad. Two areas, in particular, have been addressed, to most supporters' surprise, with minimal transfer expenditure: the full-back positions. After a season on the substitution bench, …

The Game That Time Will Forget | Everton 0 Liverpool 0

Last month saw the release of Tony Evans’ Two Tribes book. It looks at the 1985-86 season set against the backdrop of social and political turmoil in and around the city at the time.
