When Lucas gave a speech to the fans at the last home game of the season and his wife was in tears I can remember thinking this looks very much like a final farewell. Even so, seeing Lucas in a Lazio shirt is still a little unnerving. Much derided in the early part of his…

Trying to work out who Liverpool could be facing in the CL playoff is not the easiest thing, especially as not all the European leagues have finished playing yet. However, after wading through numerous articles mentioning seedings and coefficients, I found a good description of our possible opponents in the good old Liverpool Echo. We’ve…

In this advanced chapter of a new book soon to be released Fernando Torres gives an interview in which he explains in some depth why he chose to leave Liverpool. It’s not a short read but it’s worth getting to the end as it challenges some of the ‘facts’ surrounding the very divisive event. I must…

You need to be winning against clubs like Leicester on a regular basis. Jamie Carragher’s opinion that…

I had to laugh when I saw Coutinho’s positioning for this free kick. To the uninformed it almost looks like he’s hiding from the ball, which of course he’s not, but it was a little odd nevertheless. The players and coaching staff at Liverpool had obviously had discussions beforehand on how to strengthen the wall,…

I started reading this article on the Liverpool Echo’s website (http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/moreno-save-liverpool-mane-klopp-12491459) with skepticism, and I’m still not sure whether I agree with it or not,  but I have to admit it makes a persuasive argument. The idea of pushing Moreno forward has been mooted before but with the absence of Mane any addition of pace…

A Plymouth Argyle fan left this post on the official Liverpool FC Facebook page. I recommend you read it entirely because it is extremely touching and it’ll make you proud to be a Red: I’m an Argyle fan and I attended the game on Sunday. At approximately 12:00hrs, just as I was about to enter…
