Another brace of wins for Jim Boardman and Jay Reid to talk about in this week’s episode, as the Reds players get ready for their very short winter break.
With the league briefly put to one side, focus for Liverpool shifted to the domestic cups and Klopp sent out strong sides for both games, the FA Cup 3rd round against Arsenal and the first-leg semi of what some of us still call the Milk Cup against Fulham.
The season started with fairly low expectations, getting back into the Champions League probably as ambitious as many of us felt was realistic. Yet here we are, top of the league and still in all three cups - but we’d be mad to get carried away with that, there’s still a long way to go.
That’s kind of how we think on our side of Stanley Park, one game at a time, feet on the ground, fearful of a telling off from the late Ronnie Moran if we dare to think more than one game ahead. Yet across the park they took a break from a run of three league defeats by getting a draw in the cup and now seem to think their name’s on the trophy. To be fair to them, it is, right next to ‘1995’.
