LFC's 2019/20 Fixtures - The Road to the Promised Land

It's only been two weeks since Jordan Henderson lifted big ears in Madrid and we are already moving on to next season. Liverpool supporters eager to see the club build on the success of the past year are now hitting plane tracking websites and looking for our famous van: https://twitter.com/lfcxsam/status/1140367753536311298?s=21 (Un)Fortunately Michael Edwards and co have been so brilliant over the last half a dozen transfer windows, that I don't really care about silly season. The club targets the right …
Thank You, Daniel Sturridge

Thank You, Daniel Sturridge

I'll never forget the first time I spoke about Daniel Sturridge at length. I was on holiday with my family in 2008, and in true father-son fashion a footballing debate was going on. My dad was adamant that the state of English football was in a bad way - he was probably right, in hindsight - with no talented teenagers coming through at time when the 'Golden Generation' were not getting any younger. I spent my time singling out two …
Klopp Enters The Pantheon Of Liverpool Greats

Klopp Enters The Pantheon Of Liverpool Greats

What a night. Liverpool are the Champions of Europe for the 6th time, following a hard-fought, stoically defensive 2-0 win over Spurs. This is a night that will go down in the history of the club, and a night that finally breaks Jürgen Klopp’s duck as Liverpool manager, winning his first trophy for the club. There have been several seminal moments in Klopp’s tenure. I’ve spoken before (including at the time) about Liverpool’s 4-1 defeat to Spurs as a pivotal …

Liverpool Player Ratings: End of Season Edition - Part One

Liverpool Player Ratings: End of Season Edition - Part One

It's that time of year again, a time for reflection. A memorable domestic campaign drew to a disappointing end for Liverpool as a ninth straight league win wasn't enough to prevent Manchester City from a successive title, but there were a string of positives - one of which being qualification for another Champions League final. Whilst we're still a couple of weeks from finding out if the Liverpool squad can make themselves heroes by bringing home number six from Madrid, …
Klopp's Full-Back Conundrum

Klopp's Full-Back Conundrum

Liverpool’s season is almost over, with only the Champions League final left. That, coupled with the fact that the Premier League transfer window is already open, means that transfer speculation and target hunting is the order of the day. Now, most of the speculation regarding Liverpool seems to be that the Reds aren’t planning to spend lots of money this summer, but are merely planning to replace players who leave and touch up the squad. This makes sense, given that …
Observations as Liverpool Miss Out on the Title

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. Amassing more points than the Invincibles and any United side managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, there could be no shame in not winning the most coveted prize. Sadio Mane signs out with a bang A team encapsulating so many attacking riches, Sadio Mane has stood up to become No.1 so …
Liverpool's Redemption Song

Liverpool's Redemption Song

In the immediate aftermath of Liverpool’s heartbreaking defeat to Real Madrid in last year’s Champions League Final, Reds around the world could be forgiven if they were downbeat and disappointed. Liverpool had reignited its love affair with the Champions League in spectacular fashion, beating Porto, Manchester City, and Roma on the way to the Final in their first time back in the competition since 2009, only to see their dreams crushed in cruel fashion. Yet, while many supporters’ heads may …

Greatness Beckons for Player of the Year Van Dijk

Greatness Beckons for Player of the Year Van Dijk

For just the fourth time in 40 years, a centre-back has been named PFA Player of the Year, and he couldn't be a more worthy winner. Joining Gary Pallister, Paul McGrath and John Terry is Virgil van Dijk, following a season unlike many ever seen by a defender at Liverpool. When gushing over a player in the present, it is easy to get carried away and start rating him higher than his actual level merits. I loved Daniel Agger, but …
