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. Fans are still looking around planning the cheapest and most reasonable routes due to the spike in flight costs and hotel prices in Madrid. …
Mo Salah and the Social Media Fallacy

Mo Salah and the Social Media Fallacy

“2019 Resolution: time to get in touch, for real.” That was Mohamed Salah’s last ever tweet. His social media presence vanished, disappearing into the vast void of Internet information that once was. Salah’s deletion of all social media accounts has brought with it a series of questions. Why would he do such a thing? Is he cracking under the pressure of such intense scrutiny for winning penalties? Does this mean he’ll score even more goals now he’s done browsing Reddit …
Bringing up a Red

Bringing up a Red

I see them all the time. Supporters of our storied club, who have been bought up in an LFC family right from the beginning. Their father and most of the times, their mother was an LFC supporter. Their grandfather was a season ticket holder and the said ticket has been passed down from father to son until the young lad now has it. Their names are put on the season ticket waiting list as soon as they are born Their …
Reasons To Be Cheerful & Furious - Chelsea 1 Liverpool 0

Reasons To Be Cheerful & Furious - Chelsea 1 Liverpool 0

Well, the Chelsea result left me furious. Not with the team, not with the manager and not with the referee for once. Broadly speaking, I was fine with what happened on the pitch. Chelsea deprived us of space and closed down all the main passing channels. They shut up shop once they gained the lead and we huffed and puffed without really getting involved. They’re a decent side and we looked knackered so, y’know, no complaints. No, it was the …
Fans, Supporters and a Red named Dejan Lovren

Fans, Supporters and a Red named Dejan Lovren

Liverpool centre-back, Dejan Lovren, was named the club's Player of the Month for October via popular vote through the team website. Lovren received a full 33% of the vote, edging out favourite Mo Salah and setting off a vociferous debate on the appropriateness of the award going to a player in the middle of a career-defining crisis; one that has cost the club in recent weeks. Just one of thousands of tweets read:
"The people who voted for Lovren as …
The Anfield Atmosphere

The Anfield Atmosphere

With Liverpool sitting in sixth place in the league and 12 points behind the leaders, Man City, the Twitter brigade are scavenging off poor displays from certain players or the team as a whole. Although our calamitous defence may be an issue, it is not as big as the issue which is unfolding around the stands caused by the men off the field. After Huddersfield were served a 3-0 defeat at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, their manager, David Wagner said …
A Tale of Two Day Trippers

A Tale of Two Day Trippers

At a club as big as Liverpool, fans are bound to come from places all around the world. Tickets become harder to acquire and more expensive. The team leaves for places like China or America during preseason tours, signing autographs for fans, visiting the sights, and making players available to all kinds of media. So if you are on your way to Anfield this autumn, before you gaze angrily at the two guys going through the turnstiles with American accents, …
Booing and Fan Hypocrisy

Booing and Fan Hypocrisy

Football fans are hypocrites. Downright hypocrites. Yes, you! I’m talking about you. Specifically you. You more than most. Not me though. I’m pure as the driven snow. What has driven me to this tirade? It’s this. On Sunday afternoon, in the hammering rain of the Etihad, Liverpool’s left-back was booed. People actually contorted their faces and made a sound they probably haven’t used since the last time they watched a pantomime. His crime? Touching the ball. Booed. Just think about …
Observations from Liverpool's win against Sunderland: Patience is key

Observations from Liverpool's win against Sunderland: Patience is key

The Reds weren't rampant. The floodgates didn't open like many had expected them to prior to kick-off.. Klopp's men didn't dismantle yet another side at Anfield. Instead, it was tense and a little uncomfortable as Sunderland threatened to frustrate the home side. They held out for 75 minutes but in the end Liverpool came away with the all important three points to put them top of the Premier League for the time being. Usually I take a look at positives from …
Liverpool Supporters: Pessimistically Optimistic

Liverpool Supporters: Pessimistically Optimistic

Liverpool Football Club is a massive club, to say the least. The supporters are those who know it better than anyone. After all, we’re the ones who have witnessed the highs and lows over decades and decades. Players, managers, and staff come and go. But it’s us fans, who are the constant in the equation. A little over seven months ago, Jurgen Klopp has replaced Brendan Rodgers, who was in the drivers seat for three and a half seasons, and …
