Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

The legendary 4-0 win over Barcelona will be remembered for so many reasons by Liverpool supporters. The impact of Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum will rightly be at the top of the list when the game is looked back on in decades to come, following their heroic double apiece. Similarly, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s outrageous assist for Origi’s tie-clinching strike will go down in legend for its audacity and speed of thought. Alisson’s expertise in the Reds goal helped keep his side …
European Royalty back where it belongs

European Royalty back where it belongs

Pack your bags, we’re going to Madrid. It’s the biggest stage of all in club football, and the Reds will be hoping they can go one better than last year in Kiev. A place in Liverpool folklore waits for the current squad. This year’s UEFA Champions League road to the final in Madrid has proven that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are back where they belong. Not just another English side making up the numbers in Europe, but one of the most …

Klopp's Champions League Final Midfield Dilemma

UEFA - The Green-Three-Eyed Monster

“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 …
Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Three days after Liverpool emphatically turned around a three-goal deficit to reach the Champions League final, I arrived in Barcelona for a short trip still ecstatic from the result. What I learned just moments after getting off the plane was that this result hasn’t just hurt Messi and the rest of the team it’s hurt a whole city. Getting into a taxi outside the airport the driver immediately noticed my Liverpool jersey before venting his frustrations in a Spanish slur. …
We're All Believers Now

We're All Believers Now

The concept of belief is a funny thing. Very close to the end of Liverpool’s incredible, awe-inspiring, death-defying 4-0 win over Barcelona, the question was asked whether there were any Liverpool fans who believed that their team would be in that position, hanging on (if you could call it that, the result was almost never in doubt by the end) to a 4-3 aggregate lead. And I guess everyone has their own story. For me, I was about to board …
Divock Origi: The epitome of a Jürgen Klopp squad player

Divock Origi: The epitome of a Jürgen Klopp squad player

What a week it's been for Divock Origi. First, he scores an 86th-minute winner against Newcastle to take the title race into the final day of the season. Then, due to an injury to Roberto Firmino, he gets given the nod to start against Barcelona in a Champions League semi-final. And scores twice. Who knew that back when he scored that iconic 96th-minute winner against Everton at Anfield back in December that it would be the start of things to …
Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Who else is still bouncing? Who else can’t think about anything apart from THAT game? Who else wouldn’t change this Liverpool team for the world? Tuesday night is seconded only to Istanbul for me, in terms of drama, passion and emotion, on a night that genuinely felt flat in my mind before kick-off. This time they really weren’t going to turn it around, were they? That Vincent Kompany stunner against Leicester had only further dampened spirits, following an extremely harsh …
Liverpool leave the past behind in thrashing of Barcelona

Liverpool leave the past behind in thrashing of Barcelona

This club is the mix of atmosphere, emotion, desire and football quality. Cut off one and it doesn't work.
The words of a stunned, joyous and emotionally drained Jürgen Klopp after the greatest Anfield night of his tenure: a perfect storm of atmosphere, emotion, desire and football quality that tore into Barcelona, blowing their European dreams apart and reducing even the greatest footballer ever to a footnote in what had been a special European tie. 3-0 down after …
