Liverpool on the Verge of Greatness with Madrid on the Horizon

Liverpool on the Verge of Greatness with Madrid on the Horizon

A little under a week remains before Liverpool kick-off in an epic final against Europe's finest knockout team of recent years. Should Jürgen Klopp taste victory and claim the biggest prize in club football, it will be one of his finest moments yet. A rising force Liverpool will be the underdog going into the match. But win the trophy and once again we will show the world we are a formidable opponent in European knockout football. One to be feared …
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. …
Time For Liverpool To Prove Nice Guys Can Finish First

Time For Liverpool To Prove Nice Guys Can Finish First

Bias exists in football, there is no doubt about that. We all overly heap praise on the teams we support and the players we love, while those we dislike must do something magical to earn a similar level of adoration. One thing that has nothing to do with favouritism, however, is just what a likeable bunch of players Liverpool have nowadays. Sure, we will instantly warm to our own players more than Man United or Everton fans would, but even …
Organising Chaos Against Real Madrid

Organising Chaos Against Real Madrid

I shared a thread on Twitter recently about my thoughts on how Liverpool can beat Real Madrid, and it received such positive feedback that I’ve decided to expand on it here. The thread is linked below for those that want to check it out: https://twitter.com/DistanceCovered/status/996345845749637120 Now, as I’ve mentioned in the thread, the key factor when determining whether Liverpool are likely to win against any opponent is whether the opposing team is vulnerable in transition or not. Liverpool are gradually …
I'm a wreck....but just maybe! | Countdown to Kiev

I'm a wreck....but just maybe! | Countdown to Kiev

I'm a wreck. Tossing and turning at night. Nervous. Worried. It's not because this is my first article in god knows how long. It's not because I'm worried that Jack Butland may be joining Jurgen's red army. It's all down to the big one. Saturday evening against Real Madrid... European royalty no doubt. I'm convincing myself it'll be all fine. No one has lived with us so far, how can Madrid? I worry about their experience, their needle and dark arts. I …
Win!

Win!

Though I know I'll never lose affection For people and things that went before I know I'll often stop and think about them In my life, I love you more Allow me to explain if you will. You’ll need coffee. Tissues optional. Heart necessary. Fortitude compulsory. If 2011 was the season that started me, this season could so simply have been the one that finished me. Back then, so many years ago, I became a father for the first time. …
Are Liverpool 'listos' for La Liga signings?

Are Liverpool 'listos' for La Liga signings?

AIPro's Dave Hendrick took his A-Eye Scouted series to Spain this week for a look at La Liga. Journalist Karl Matchett was along for the ride to give his take on eight hidden gems of Spanish football that could be a fit for the Reds. I'm not sure which contributor was Don Quixote and which was Sancho Panza on this epic search but they came up with some intriguing suggestions for the next Spanish Liverpool star. La Liga has always …
Drink In Every Second Of Liverpool’s Champions League Final Build-Up

Drink In Every Second Of Liverpool’s Champions League Final Build-Up

Not every football supporter is lucky enough to have a Champions League final to look forward to. Some will never experience it. Most have already erased football from their minds, for the time being, recharging the batteries and focusing on other interests, prior to the World Cup taking over their summer. That couldn’t be further from the case with Liverpool, though. Premier League duties may be done and dusted, with the Reds nailing their pre-season objective of registering consecutive top-four …
The Other Battle To Reach The Champions League Final

The Other Battle To Reach The Champions League Final

While Liverpool had to negotiate Germany’s most recent hipster team in Hoffenheim before seeing off Maribor, Seville, Spartak Moscow, Porto, the English League champions and the conquerors of FC Barcelona, their fans face an equally rocky path on their way to the final on 26th May. To get to Kiev, our fans – many of whom have already been around the continent several times to qualify for final tickets – have to undergo several dramas to secure their trip to …
Mohamed Salah to remain at Liverpool despite Real Madrid interest

Mohamed Salah to remain at Liverpool despite Real Madrid interest

Whenever a player emerges as one of the world’s best, they always end up being linked with the top European clubs. It’s inevitable. This season, Mohamed Salah has become one of the hottest names in world football thanks to his sensational campaign with Liverpool. Salah has only been at Anfield for one season, following his move from Italian club Roma last summer, but he settled instantly and has been arguably the best player in Europe this season. Salah’s stats speak …
