Win!

Though I know I'll never lose affection For people and things that went before I know I'll often stop and think about them In my life, I love you more Allow me to explain if you will. You’ll need coffee. Tissues optional. Heart necessary. Fortitude compulsory. If 2011 was the season that started me, this season could so simply have been the one that finished me. Back then, so many years ago, I became a father for the first time. …
Liverpool v AS Roma Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v AS Roma Preview - Key Battles

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. Liverpool slipped up at the weekend though, as shoddy defending cost them two points, as the Reds let a two-goal slip, with shoddy defending at the end of 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 …
The Return Of Anfield

The Return Of Anfield

“It’s there to remind our lads who they’re playing for and to remind the opposition who they’re playing against!” – Bill Shankly on the ‘This is Anfield’ sign.
As you get older you start to hanker for the good times. You see everything that is new as a threat to what you hold in your heart and believe to be a better world. So you defend your time as somehow superior while pouring scorn on newer incarnations. My …
Champions League Dreams - For Liverpool, not City!

Champions League Dreams - For Liverpool, not City!

A few of my writings over the years have had reference to songs or movies of old. This one is no different. As it’s a blockbuster tie, there’s only one way to go which is Frankie Goes to Hollywood!!! We've two legs coming up against Manchester City. The fun all starts at Anfield on Wednesday 4th April. So, with that in mind... “Welcome to the Pleasuredome!” Are we ready to stand and be counted? Many a time in the annals …
Liverpool's Attack: From Down Right Disaster To Destructive In Just Three Years

Liverpool's Attack: From Down Right Disaster To Destructive In Just Three Years

Cast your minds back to the gloomy 2014/15 season in which Liverpool parted ways with the talismanic figure of Luis Suarez, replacing him with Rickie Lambert and the ever egotistical Mario Balotelli. From goals galore in 2013/14 to a troublesome goal drought the following season, Brendan Rodgers' side went from a team that could do no wrong to one devoid of attacking verve. The £16million move for Balotelli was a gamble that never paid off, with the forward scoring his …
Anfield factor can help Liverpool march on towards glory in Champions League

Anfield factor can help Liverpool march on towards glory in Champions League

The Champions League quarter-final draw certainly didn’t do any favours to England’s two remaining clubs, with Liverpool and Manchester City being drawn to play each other in what, with all due respect to Real Madrid and Juventus, has to be the tie of the round. Whilst the draw could have been more favourable and despite the fact that there are a number of heavyweight clubs that still need to be overcome, Liverpool currently represent decent betting value at 12-1 with …
Champions League Reaction: A Tie For The Pundits More Than The Fans

Champions League Reaction: A Tie For The Pundits More Than The Fans

As I write this the early days of April 2018 contain the following fixtures. Wed 4th April: Liverpool v Manchester City Saturday 7th April: Everton v Liverpool Tuesday 10th April: Manchester City v Liverpool Three games in six days that will provide a season’s worth of drama and mayhem. Talk about make or break. Those are three huge games. City are seemingly unstoppable, and the Reds are coming up the hill, boys. This is the tie the pundits wanted. But …
Anfield The Key To Securing Top Four Again

Anfield The Key To Securing Top Four Again

With just eight games now remaining in Liverpool’s Premier League campaign and the Reds sitting 4th, four points clear of 5th place Chelsea and with a trip to Stamford Bridge to come, Liverpool’s season very much remains in the balance, not to mention the Champions League quarter-final that the Reds have to look forward to at the start of April. 76 points is the mark that keeps being brought up as a target and it’s fair to suggest that at least …
Anfield - Liverpool's European Fortress

Anfield - Liverpool's European Fortress

Liverpool is back in the Champions League knockout stages. Back with a bang. It has been a while. None of the players from the team that managed to go out of the group stages last time are with the team now. It took a change of ownership, 4 managerial changes and 3254 days for the Champions League to be back at Anfield in spring. Even the stadium is different now with the new Main Stand. The famous European nights at …
