Will Liverpool Repeat Relegation Signing Trick With Sander Berge

To complete the hattrick, Xherdan Shaqiri swapped Championship bound Stoke for Anfield …

Shaqiri sings praises of Andy Robertson's understudy

Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri believes that Kostas Tsimikas can go on to become a "very important player for the club".

The truth behind Liverpool’s drought

The truth behind Liverpool’s drought

In truth, it was a mixture of bad luck and bad finishing. I wrote about it in detail for work.  The Reds had the chances, but they kept falling to the wrong players.
