Some of you may not have heard of Curtis Jones a young lad who has recently made his debut in the U18’s.  He’s a big strong midfielder who has a good range of passing, is comfortable on the ball and has an eye for goal.  On his debut  against Middlesbrough he hit the post with…

This game gives some of those who haven’t featured yet in pre-season an opportunity for a work-out.  I’m looking forward to seeing Weimaldum (apologies for spelling if wrong) and also seeing where Klopp plays him.  Sturridge, Origi, Clyne and Mignolet should all play some part. I’m not sure what t he opposition will be like.…

Its the last of our domestic pre-season friendlies tonight against a Huddersfield team that has won all its pre-season games to date and should prove our sternest test so far.  It has come too soon for the returning England and Belgium players so I would expect a similar squad to previous games less Matip who…

The pre-season games are coming thick and fast.  Wigan have been on a bit of a roller coaster the last few seasons, being demoted from the Premier League and then from the Championship, to  which they have just returned after winning League 1 last season. I have a bit of a soft spot for Wigan…

Our second pre-season game comes tonight and I’ll be looking to see if our shooting looks any sharper than against Tranmere.  I’m hoping to see Grujic get a bit of game time.  He’s been somewhat under the radar but I have a feeling he could be a big player for us in future though he…

Just seen the new fixture list and would you believe it we have been given a series of tough away matches to start the season yet again.  Our first 3 away games are at Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea and there is also a difficult home match with Leicester in the early weeks.  Mind you it…

I know not all Kopfans are England supporters but I think everyone will have an interest in the England team as 5 Liverpool players are in the squad.  England did well in qualifying with 100% record but it was a very weak group apart from Switzerland.  The young players who have come in over qualifying…

Euro 2016

They’re here at last!  I’m not a great fan of present day International Football but at least there will be some competitive games to fill the footy void during this close season.  I thought I would post two blogs threads, one on the Euros in genreal (this one) and a specific one on England at…

If no one else is going to post this one then here goes. An end of season match between 8th and 9th teams isn’t usually the greatest of prospects but this is Liverpool v Chelsea and there is always something at stake when we meet them.  I would expect our team to be pretty much…

I can’t see a match post for the Newcastle game so here goes.  Hope that’s ok with everyone.  Not sure what has happened to our chief scribe Warrior.  Hope he didn’t over celebrate the Everton victory. Newcastle at home is a game we usually win fairly comfortably.  We owe them one for the 2-0 defeat…
