Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions

Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same. For the past week, in footballing circles, talk has centred around whether or not the 2019/20 campaign would be finished. Common sense would suggest a season not yet underway couldn’t take precedence over one that is very near completion. But there’s not much common sense in football.  Rival fans, desperate to ensure Liverpool aren’t crowned champions, have latched onto the idea that this season should be expunged from the history …
FArcical FA Clear Firmino

FArcical FA Clear Firmino

So, a month and a half after Bobby Firmino was shoved into the stands by Mason Holgate, swore at him in response, and was accused of being racist by the young English defender, the FA has eventually decided that Firmino did not racially abuse Holgate. This, of course, is great news for Liverpool and Firmino – who released a wonderfully classy statement immediately after. It is not, however, great news for football in general.

Mignolet is Predictably Calm

Mignolet is Predictably Calm

I want you to prepare yourself, dear reader, because it's time for Simon Mignolet to speak and, following his recent chicken kebab revelations, literally anything could happen here. Although it probably won't, because Simon is a very nice chap and, if we're honest, a little, well, dull. His take on the set-back at Sunderland is predictably by-the-numbers. "We wanted to win, unfortunately that didn’t happen, although we had the chances to do so,” Mignolet told Liverpoolfc.com. “It’s tough to take, …
