Do Liverpool Fans' Transfer Expectations Match Reality?

Woohoo, the summer transfer window is now in full swing and Liverpool, much to the disgust of their fans, have made one signing: Dominic Solanke. Who I hear you ask? Only the player of the tournament in the recent U-20 World Cup. Hardly the start to the window fans were expecting, when you consider Virgil Van Dijk was a done deal a few weeks ago and was expected to be doing The Lean instead of promoting the new Southampton kit. Mohamed Salah was another deal allegedly done weeks ago, and was going to be the second player this summer arriving continue reading

Mission Accomplished as Liverpool Secure Top Four Finish

Listen very very carefully and you might hear the faint noise of Liverpool fans co-existing in relative harmony on social media. That’s because our final day win over Middlesbrough, securing fourth spot, meant that we weren’t busy ripping each other, FSG, Jurgen Klopp, James Milner or the referee to shreds. This oddly unsettling consensus probably won’t last long with transfer season around the corner and no doubt the knives will be whipped out again, but until then let’s try to embrace the weirdness. Embed from Getty Images   The scene was set. A win was all that was needed. We continue reading

Sturridge Stars in Liverpool's Top 4 Race at Olympic Stadium

Now that the Premier League title has been won and the those departing the top flight have sealed their fate, all that is left to play for are the two remaining Champions League spots with Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal still in the running. City look nailed on to win their remaining two games (West Brom (h) and Watford (a)) which would see them leapfrog Liverpool currently in third place. Arsenal, who comfortably beat Stoke on Saturday night have Sunderland and Everton at home.

Top 4 Still on for Liverpool Despite Drab Draw At Anfield

It’s in our hands, it’s not in our hands. It’s back in our hands but it’s not anymore. This has been the story of Liverpool’s Champions League qualification attempt in the last few weeks. After the defeat to Crystal Palace two weeks ago, we had surrendered the right to make the cut ourselves. But no sooner had Manchesters United and City dropped points last week, our win against Watford catapulted us back into the drivers seat. Embed from Getty Images   But why make it that easy? What could possibly be more fun than weekly ninety minute sessions of intense continue reading

Liverpool's Premier League Top 4 Hopes Hang in the Balance

Liverpool have just four games left to play this season. Arsenal have seven, while both Manchester clubs have six. Arsene Wenger’s side are on a high after progressing to the FA Cup final, and with 21 points up for grabs in their remaining games they could do what the Gunners have done since 1998 and qualify for the Champions League. During this run, however, they have to play Manchester United, so from Liverpool’s point of view there’s at least the a guarantee that one of these clubs will drop points. Manchester United also have to play local rivals Manchester City continue reading

Liverpool Broken by Benteke Brace as Sakho Celebrates - Liverpool 1, Crystal Palace 2

By Umarah Naz As Liverpool succumbed to Crystal Palace at Anfield (again!), it was a case of which centre-back infuriated us the most. Was it the inept display by Dejan Lovren or his ex, Mamadou Sakho, celebrating Christian Benteke’s equaliser? Probably the former, and rightly so. As much as Sakho giving LFC the proverbial slap in the face irked many, it was our own flaws that lost us the game. Embed from Getty Images   Detracting from them by concentrating on the poor judgement of an exiled player could be described as poor form. Safe to say, Sakho’s not coming continue reading

LFC Tactics & Player Ratings: Stoke City 1, Liverpool 2

Stoke City 1, Liverpool 2 Embed from Getty Images Bet 365 Stadium, Stoke on Trent (27,568) Liverpool scorers: Coutinho 70′, Firmino 72′ Stoke scorer: Walters 44′ Simon Mignolet – 9* Two outstanding saves to rescue Liverpool’s ailing defence who continue to gift chances to the opposition. Embed from Getty Images Trent Alexander-Arnold – 5.5 Wasn’t helped by those around him. A learning experience for the 18-year-old who was subbed at half-time. One great cross showed his potential. Dejan Lovren – 4 Gifted a chance to Arnautovic and was stranded for numerous other Stoke chances, including their goal. Joel Matip – 6 continue reading

Predicting The Final Run In - Will Liverpool Qualify for the Champions League?

Six games left, three spots up for grabs… If there’s one thing we can all agree upon when it comes to being a Liverpool FC fan, it’s that it’s not for the faint-hearted! 32 games gone, more points in the bag than in the previous season, yet we’re still perilously away from potentially dropping out of the top 4. So what are the possible outcomes to ensure LFC are back in the Champions League next year, fighting against Europe’s elite? There are two lines of thought while looking at this table: We have the points in the bag, which is continue reading
