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 …
Nervous Afternoon Nets Another Three Points for Liverpool

Nervous Afternoon Nets Another Three Points for Liverpool

Lineup: Karius, TAA, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Gini, Henderson, Milner, Salah, Firmino, Mané Subs: Clyne, Lovren, Moreno, Lallana, Chamberlain, Mignolet, Ings Coming off of what seemed like a month-long international break Liverpool supporters were understandably anxious to see the Reds in something more action-packed than an Instagram story. But, it only took a few minutes for that anticipation to turn into anxiety. Just eight minutes in there was a massive save from Karius, denying a Zaha attempt from what should …

The Return of Roy - Crystal Palace v Liverpool

The Return of Roy - Crystal Palace v Liverpool

Come the summer of 2010 I’d had enough of Liverpool Football Club. Before you reach for your fiery torch and summon a lynch mob to my house I must offer up a defence. We’ve all had feelings like this from time to time. There is no one alive who thinks that the custodians of L4 are 100% right at all time and they, like anyone, are capable of instigating an over-powering sense of frustration, but in 2010 it was more …
Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

I’ll warn you, this is a bit of a sob story and I am absolutely looking for sympathy. As a “southern softie”, what more do you expect? When it comes to being a Liverpool supporter from the south of England, I can assure you that the hour or so after losing to Man United is one of the most hideous as a Red. I’m sure it’s pretty grim for you too, wherever you are in the world, but I’m feeling …
Liverpool in Crisis? Really?

Liverpool in Crisis? Really?

One thing that identifies Liverpool supporters and possibly sets us apart from others is the sheer range of emotions when it comes to following the club. For example, you’ll often hear talk of us ‘being by far the greatest team the world has ever seen’ even when we languish in 7th place with a solitary victory in seven games. On the other hand, there are people who are talking like this is the worst Liverpool side/manager/owners the club have had in …
Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Jordan Henderson. League Cup Winner 2012, Europa League Runner Up 2016, Audi Cup Runner Up 2017 & Serial Young Player of the Year Award Winner. His honours list reads like a small pack of Revels. Yet somewhat amazingly, despite continuing to divide opinion and never really cementing his position as a winner, Henderson is a man who continues to defy critics and has somehow managed to work himself into the role of Captain for both club and country. For Liverpool, …

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …
Liverpool's Recent History With The Opening Weekend

Liverpool's Recent History With The Opening Weekend

This weekend, Liverpool get back into the swing of competitive action with their ‘opening day’ fixture against Arsenal. Of course, it’s not the opening day, as the Reds meet the Gunners on Sunday afternoon, making it more of an ‘opening weekend’ game. Still, the excitement and buzz will be there to see as Premier League football returns once more. There’s something special about the opening weekend though, in the sense that results are harder to predict than any other time …
