Trademark Liverpool

Trademark Liverpool

I don’t know what the big problem is. “We are Liverpool, tra la la la la,” easily changes to, “We are Liverpool, all rights reserved, we’re the best football team in the land.” Adam Lallana won’t have much to do this season. Imagine the pride he would take in slapping TM’s on every road sign leading into the city.

Why Keita could be key to Liverpool becoming English Kings

In a …

Unfortunately for Liverpool, this is the era of Manchester City and their state-sponsored, law-flouting spending and their club record points tally wasn’t sufficient to claim the clubs first league since the 1989-90 season. Liverpool’s squad, as the league table indicates and the Champions League victory further reinforces, is excellent. It is, however, not deep enough. Until the required quality is added …
Mohamed Salah: Two years that created a Liverpool legend

Mohamed Salah: Two years that created a Liverpool legend

When Mohamed Salah signed for Liverpool on the 22nd of July 2017, it's fair to say that more than a few eyebrows were raised. At the time, what seemed like a fairly hefty fee of £36.9 million - which was at this stage a club record fee - it's only fair to say Salah's signing failed to convince everyone at first. Fast forward two years, two golden boots, two sensational seasons and one Champions League winners medal later, and Salah …
