Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 - Reds On Top for Seconds

And then there was one. One last Sunday to say our prayers and hope Manchester City open the door for Liverpool. It had been eight straight wins since a 0-0 draw at Goodison left just enough slack for City to overtake The Reds. The consensus was then that we would have to win out. A win against Wolves would accomplish that, but City have not cooperated. The only pause in their pursuit of a four trophy season has been in …
Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona: Who was man of the match?

There are truly no words so soon after the greatest European night in Anfield's history, but I'll try to find some. This was a depleted Liverpool side - no Mohamed Salah, no Roberto Firmino and, after halftime, no Andrew Robertson - but each and every man in red wrote themselves into footballing folklore.

Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 - What happened?

Liverpool 4 Barcelona 0 - What happened? "Football"

What happened? “Football.” The one-word response from Jurgen Klopp somehow summed up yet another breathtaking night at Anfield. With the team missing three of its most vital performers in Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino and Naby Keita, the three goal deficit left for The Reds after the first leg was so insane that it somehow made us feel more confident. It was a set-up made for this crazy club. Who would the manager piece together to take on this herculean task? …

Player Ratings as the GOAT chews up Liverpool in Barcelona

Player Ratings as the GOAT chews up Liverpool in Barcelona

Football is a game decided by moments. The Champions League is a competition decided by key moments. Unfortunately, they didn't go Liverpool's way tonight. I'm disappointed to lose 3-0, but little else. Not pissed at the officials, annoyed at Klopp, angry at a player. Liverpool went to the Nou Camp and created chances kept Messi quiet (in open play) and forced Valverde into what was essentially an 8-2 formation for times during the second half. However, the greatest player of …

There’s a tradition in U.S. where high school (American) football teams will schedule Sister Mary’s School for the Blind for their homecoming weekend so they can show off a bit in front of their girlfriends before the big dance. This… was that. Where was Huddersfield Town in 2013/14? This is the match we wanted Crystal Palace to be.
