European Royalty back where it belongs

European Royalty back where it belongs

Pack your bags, we’re going to Madrid. It’s the biggest stage of all in club football, and the Reds will be hoping they can go one better than last year in Kiev. A place in Liverpool folklore waits for the current squad. This year’s UEFA Champions League road to the final in Madrid has proven that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are back where they belong. Not just another English side making up the numbers in Europe, but one of the most …

UEFA - The Green-Three-Eyed Monster

“It is time for Liverpool Football Club to go to yet another European Cup Final”.
Yet, many have been priced out and many are left without tickets. In a few weeks, there will be a mass exodus from the banks of the River Mersey to get to Madrid for our ninth European Cup final.

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.

Observations as Liverpool Miss Out on the Title

This was grace in defeat, going down in the most beautiful way. Liverpool pushed and pulled and forced their way to 97 points, they made City work for the title.

Sadio Mane signs out with a bang A team encapsulating so many attacking riches, Sadio Mane has stood up to become No.1 so …
We're All Believers Now

We're All Believers Now

The concept of belief is a funny thing. Very close to the end of Liverpool’s incredible, awe-inspiring, death-defying 4-0 win over Barcelona, the question was asked whether there were any Liverpool fans who believed that their team would be in that position, hanging on (if you could call it that, the result was almost never in doubt by the end) to a 4-3 aggregate lead. And I guess everyone has their own story. For me, I was about to board …
Nothing to lose at Anfield in Barcelona second-leg

Nothing to lose at Anfield in Barcelona second-leg

It wasn't exactly the ideal result, despite a solid performance. It was a rare occasion that Liverpool found themselves in last night, losing. The 3-0 defeat to Barcelona was a low moment in a season of highs for Jürgen Klopp's men, and it puts their place in a second consecutive Champions League final in serious jeopardy. And what it does is throw the second leg as wide open as Alisson's goal was for Messi's first at the Nou Camp. But …
