Observations from Liverpool's 2-1 win at Bournemouth

A day that started with a poignant tribute to the ninety-six from AFC Bournemouth, ended in joy for Liverpool as a hugely changed squad came out 2-1 winners on the south coast.

Merry Klopp-mas and a Quiet New Year?

Merry Klopp-mas and a Quiet New Year?

The countdown is on and the big day is nearly upon us. Excited boys and girls are writing their lists, checking them twice (at least!) and hoping that when the time comes, they’ll be screeching with excitement over the presents that they have been dreaming about for months, delivered by the jolly red man on his trusted vehicle of dreams. I am, of course, talking about the opening of the January transfer window and Ian Ayres moped exploits en route to closing …
