On the all-too-hasty dismissal of Liverpool's title chances

On the all-too-hasty dismissal of Liverpool's title chances

In light of certain media coverage, we have to set out some important facts. Expected title rivals Liverpool and Manchester City both won their first game of the season - convincingly. There are another 37 matches still to be played. That's stating the obvious, but the obvious seems to have slipped the mind of the countless observers who purred over City's routine victory at the London Stadium. So enthralled were they by the ruthless performance that they all but declared …

National Anthem Booed by Liverpool Supporters - Here's Why

In the aftermath of the Community Shield, which saw Manchester City beat Liverpool on penalties after a 1-1 draw, the main talking point is not the match itself, but the events before kick-off. As the players lined up facing the royal box, in front of Prince William, it was announced that the national anthem would be played. What followed really was a sight and sound to behold. The Liverpool end erupted into boos and whistles which carried on throughout the …

Fans are still looking around planning the cheapest and most reasonable routes due to the spike in flight costs and hotel prices in Madrid. …
The Case for Trusting Liverpool

The Case for Trusting Liverpool

Maybe it’s because it’s been a while getting here, but if you believe Twitter, every day is a bit of a meltdown at Liverpool during this year’s title race. I for one am being slightly cautious in this season’s race because it’s only just turned February. Sure, we’re clear at the top of the table, but I know things can change in the space a week or so at this stage. I’m not pessimistic, I’m just holding my horses. Having …
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 …
Why Liverpool Fans Are Underrating Mo Salah

Why Liverpool Fans Are Underrating Mo Salah

I happened to glance upon a Twitter poll last week asking who Liverpool’s best signing had been during Jurgen Klopp's tenure. I answered with my gut feeling, and along with approximately 60 per cent of the voters, opted for Virgil van Dijk, who led the way comfortably. I saw Mo Salah’s name loud and clear in front of me but didn’t once consider picking him ahead of the towering Dutchman. The last week has shown how ridiculous it is that …

"I Can't Watch" - Why Vlog at Anfield?

We are all mad about football because of the ecstasy and euphoria that goes with it. The inevitable comedowns are toppled by the highs. And those highs are the best kind. We remember them and cherish them. Just like most substances, they only give us an appetite for more. You could call it an addiction to the jubilation and the affliction. However, among the like-minded majority arise the space cadets, especially with the help of social media. In the hours …

The Curious Case of the Midnight Queues and the Liverbird

It’s 10:30 pm on a Saturday night. The usually busy venue of The Stables in the Andheri area of Mumbai seems to have an unusually large crowd outside.

In fact, most of the people outside seem to be young men wearing red, carrying scarfs and what seems like banners These young men and some women have gathered here tonight to support their team.

Why Jürgen Klopp is Owed an Apology

Why Jürgen Klopp is Owed an Apology

The 2017/18 season has been one of the most memorable campaigns in years. Even the 2013/14 league campaign was given a run for its money as the most entertaining season in this millennium as Liverpool romped their way not just across England, but also Europe, putting teams to the sword with a free-flowing, all-smiling, goal-scoring bunch of hardworking madmen. Beautiful. The season had emotions galore: elation, devastation, ruefulness, and now nostalgia. But that nostalgia actually masks something that fans are …
A Champions League Final - 8000km Away From Liverpool

A Champions League Final - 8000km Away From Liverpool

25th May, 2005 - I was a little kid watching my Indian neighbour get intensely excited about a game of football. The neighbour was thrilled that his team was going to be playing in the biggest club football game of the year. The little kid that I was, it gave me pleasure in trying to annoy him by supporting his team’s opponents on the night. His team was AC Milan, as they strode out on that fateful night in Istanbul. …
