“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. …
Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

Why Madrid Must Be Liverpool's Crowning Moment

This Liverpool team has to be remembered. This has been the main thought going round my head in recent weeks, during what has been one of the most emotionally draining seasons in memory. For anyone under the age of 40, I doubt I'm alone in saying a Reds side hasn't felt this special before - none have left you feeling so connected and in love with it. There have been some top class teams since the glory days, but this …
Try wipe the smile from my face

Try wipe the smile from my face

Grinning at the wall as I stand at a urinal. It’s the litmus test for happiness - male happiness, at least. Not only was I trying to engage the lavatorial tilework in a joyous staring contest, but I was also making eye-contact with other men in this den of iniquity - trying to engage them in conversation about a football match. That’s unheard of, in my life, at least. It’s normally a case of getting in, doing what I’ve got …

A Lesson In Defending From Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool’s 2013/14 title challenge was defined by moments. The  moment Jordan Henderson saw red against Manchester City. The  moment Steven Gerrard lost his footing and Demba Ba emerged through on goal. The  moment Iago Aspas produced an abhorrent corner to set up a Chelsea counter. All painful, pivotal nails in the coffin for Brendan Rodger’s side. Sunday’s 2-1 win against Tottenham carried similar weight. Manchester City will know their destiny remains in their own hands, with maximum points from their …

Liverpool’s Record-Breaking Defence Still Being Underrated

Liverpool’s Record-Breaking Defence Still Being Underrated

It's late October and Liverpool have conceded three goals in the Premier League. Three! This was something that felt impossible almost a year ago to the day, as Dejan Lovren and Simon Mignolet were gifting Tottenham a 4-1 win. The Reds' defence looked irreparable and Jurgen Klopp found himself at the lowest point of his Anfield tenure, with a section of the fanbase even questioning his long-term capabilities in the role. What has happened since then, in particular, this season, …
