Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Champions League

Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Champions League

So in part one of this series, I wrote about Liverpool’s top five moments in their Premier League season, from my perspective. With the UCL, it’s maybe a little easier, and at the same time, a little harder, to produce a top five. On the one hand, it’s very easy because there are pretty much five standout moments in the campaign – so I’m indeed going to go with something along the lines of the five moments that you might …

LFC's 2019/20 Fixtures - The Road to the Promised Land

It's only been two weeks since Jordan Henderson lifted big ears in Madrid and we are already moving on to next season. Liverpool supporters eager to see the club build on the success of the past year are now hitting plane tracking websites and looking for our famous van: https://twitter.com/lfcxsam/status/1140367753536311298?s=21 (Un)Fortunately Michael Edwards and co have been so brilliant over the last half a dozen transfer windows, that I don't really care about silly season. The club targets the right …
Dejan Lovren: Sell or Keep?

Dejan Lovren: Sell or Keep?

The 29-year-old Croatian defender has slipped down the pecking order at the club over the past season. Long term injury and the performances of Joe Gomez and more recently Joel Matip have meant Lovren currently occupies the space of fourth choice centre back With the summer transfer window almost upon us rumours are beginning to swirl about the players future at the club. AC Milan are reported to be interested in Lovren who is thought to be available for a  …
Gomez: The Reason LFC Don't Need a Superstar Centre-Back

Gomez: The Reason LFC Don't Need a Superstar Centre-Back

I found myself watching England in the UEFA Nations League third-place playoff last weekend - a pretty sad state of affairs. When your Sunday looks empty on the social front and no other 'proper' football is on, it's (just about) better than nothing, though. The standout figure as the Three Lions edged out Xherdan Shaqiri's Switzerland was Trent Alexander-Arnold, who put together a masterful performance highlighting why he is one of the world's most exciting full-backs. It was no surprise …
Why claims Liverpool don't need players like de Ligt are wrong

Why claims Liverpool don't need players like de Ligt are wrong

There's been an unrivalled amount of chatter surrounding the future of Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt in recent weeks, with plenty of rumours linking him with a move to Anfield. However, reports in the past 48 hours seem to point toward the Dutch wonder kid joining PSG. There's also talk of Liverpool making moves for Lille's Nicolas Pepe and Sporting Lisbon's Bruno Fernandes. While it's difficult to quantify anything at this stage of 'silly season', one thing that we do know …
Liverpool Need To Start Looking Beyond This Summer

Liverpool Need To Start Looking Beyond This Summer

The dust hasn’t yet settled on Liverpool’s sixth Champions League final win in Madrid, which you can tell from the fact that I keep getting tingles every time I write that god damn sentence. But in any case, the speculation has, naturally, turned to what Liverpool are going to do next in the transfer market. I’ve previously stated before that I’m not really that bothered, either about transfer markets in general or specifically about who Liverpool sign this window and …
Liverpool now capable of winning dirty

Liverpool now capable of winning dirty

The Champions League final between Liverpool and Spurs was probably as bad a deciding game as the competition has seen for years. In terms of a neutral, it was a bland showing between two sides that had an array of attacking talent on show. Some pundits have put this down to the fact that both sides had a three-week break from their last league game, blaming rustiness as the reason for the lack of quality. However Jurgen Klopp will not …
Why the Reds Should Go All Out for Exceptional Nicolas Pepe

Why the Reds Should Go All Out for Exceptional Nicolas Pepe

There are very few times when a player jumps out at you to such a degree that he becomes magnetic. During season 2017/18, it was clear that amidst Lille’s various struggles, including almost going bankrupt and staying up by the skin of their teeth, they at least had a pillar to tie their hopes to. It wasn’t an irregularity for teams around the lower echelons of the top five leagues; plenty have a single source of hope, deciding to build …
Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

 ‘I like being the underdog so they don’t expect what’s going to happen…’
The biggest moments aren’t always meant for the biggest players, the best players, the ones who you’d expect to take up the mantle when everything is on the line. Those glittering, do or die moments can spark the emergence of those who have faded into the background, the underdogs in a group of top dogs who make their mark where no one thought it possible. …
Why is Liverpool so popular in Norway?

Why is Liverpool so popular in Norway?

The United Kingdom and Norway have always had their shared interests in the past, the countries have always been quite close to each other in terms of culture and economic development. In fact, it could be said that Norway is the UK’s best friend in Scandinavia, and will be the best friend in Europe if Brexit happens in the near future. The bridge between these cultures has always been trading and relative proximity to each other. For example, whenever Norwegian …
