Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Champions League

Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Champions League

So in part one of this series, I wrote about Liverpool’s top five moments in their Premier League season, from my perspective. With the UCL, it’s maybe a little easier, and at the same time, a little harder, to produce a top five. On the one hand, it’s very easy because there are pretty much five standout moments in the campaign – so I’m indeed going to go with something along the lines of the five moments that you might …

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 …
Why claims Liverpool don't need players like de Ligt are wrong

Why claims Liverpool don't need players like de Ligt are wrong

There's been an unrivalled amount of chatter surrounding the future of Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt in recent weeks, with plenty of rumours linking him with a move to Anfield. However, reports in the past 48 hours seem to point toward the Dutch wonder kid joining PSG. There's also talk of Liverpool making moves for Lille's Nicolas Pepe and Sporting Lisbon's Bruno Fernandes. While it's difficult to quantify anything at this stage of 'silly season', one thing that we do know …
Liverpool Need To Start Looking Beyond This Summer

Liverpool Need To Start Looking Beyond This Summer

The dust hasn’t yet settled on Liverpool’s sixth Champions League final win in Madrid, which you can tell from the fact that I keep getting tingles every time I write that god damn sentence. But in any case, the speculation has, naturally, turned to what Liverpool are going to do next in the transfer market. I’ve previously stated before that I’m not really that bothered, either about transfer markets in general or specifically about who Liverpool sign this window and …
Why the Reds Should Go All Out for Exceptional Nicolas Pepe

Why the Reds Should Go All Out for Exceptional Nicolas Pepe

There are very few times when a player jumps out at you to such a degree that he becomes magnetic. During season 2017/18, it was clear that amidst Lille’s various struggles, including almost going bankrupt and staying up by the skin of their teeth, they at least had a pillar to tie their hopes to. It wasn’t an irregularity for teams around the lower echelons of the top five leagues; plenty have a single source of hope, deciding to build …
Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

 ‘I like being the underdog so they don’t expect what’s going to happen…’
The biggest moments aren’t always meant for the biggest players, the best players, the ones who you’d expect to take up the mantle when everything is on the line. Those glittering, do or die moments can spark the emergence of those who have faded into the background, the underdogs in a group of top dogs who make their mark where no one thought it possible. …
Four Falls of Klopp

Four Falls of Klopp

‘Fight on my men, sayes Sir Andrew Barton, I am hurt but I am not slaine, Ile lay mee downe and bleed a-while, And then Ile rise and fight againe.’
JIM KELLY IS stood looking out over a national landmark, a waterfall so vast and colossal it attracts twelve million visitors a year. Niagara Falls, a beautiful and impressive natural phenomenon which flows between the border of North America and Canada. The year is 2015 and Kelly has …
Klopp's Liverpool are far more than heavy metal football

Klopp's Liverpool are far more than heavy metal football

Jürgen Klopp said once that he likes his sides to play heavy metal football. We have had many, many examples of this over the past three-and-a-bit years of his reign as Liverpool manager, with some incredible and memorable performances along the way. We all remember some of the roller-coaster games of Klopp's Liverpool; Norwich 4-5 Liverpool in 2016, the incredible comeback against his former side Borussia Dortmund - and while we're on the subject of European comebacks, how can we …
Liverpool Fans: From Doubters to Winners

Liverpool Fans: From Doubters to Winners

It’s always different than how you imagined it. Because imagination can’t possibly predict every emotion. The almost-overwhelming nerves in the build-up, the way your eyes close when the first rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone resounds throughout the Wanda Metropolitano, the sensation of suddenly being eight feet in the air when the ref blows for the penalty. Words fail supporters of football clubs at those kinds of moments, and for Liverpool, a team so bound by fighting the unwavering tide, …
Player Ratings for the Six Time European Cup Winning Reds

Player Ratings for the Six Time European Cup Winning Reds

Told Gags I'd do the ratings regardless of the result, but come on, thank fuck we won. Just back from the parade myself. Did you make it? Not a big surprise if you did, given there were 750,000 fans of the Reds knocking about. Oh, apologies. 750,000 fans of the SIX TIME EUROPEAN CUP WINNING REDS. If you think this is going to be anything other than a cluster of 10's and a love letter to each individual that graced …
