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

Try wipe the smile from my face

Grinning at the wall as I stand at a urinal. It’s the litmus test for happiness - male happiness, at least. Not only was I trying to engage the lavatorial tilework in a joyous staring contest, but I was also making eye-contact with other men in this den of iniquity - trying to engage them in conversation about a football match.

Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Who else is still bouncing? Who else can’t think about anything apart from THAT game? Who else wouldn’t change this Liverpool team for the world? Tuesday night is seconded only to Istanbul for me, in terms of drama, passion and emotion, on a night that genuinely felt flat in my mind before kick-off. This time they really weren’t going to turn it around, were they? That Vincent Kompany stunner against Leicester had only further dampened spirits, following an extremely harsh …

So far, this morning, and Latest News has waited ALL morning, there has not been so much as a whiff of anything newsworthy. We were dangerously close to this becoming one of those dreaded opinion columns, y'know, like that Downey fella used to write, when the midday news dump brought a couple …

Liverpool FC | Go Fourth and Qualify!

Liverpool FC | Go Fourth and Qualify!

The Monday after another three point display at for Brendan Rodgers's Liverpool, and this week fans of the Mersey Reds have got more than a Premier League victory to celebrate. Seemingly, at times, built from crystal, Daniel Sturridge's goalscoring return made it abundantly clear to the home crowd, and millions of football fans worldwide, exactly the kind of potency in front of goal that the Reds had been missing since August. Sturridge had to wait until past the 70 minute …
