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. This left Liverpool with West Ham (a) and Middlesbrough (h); win both to guarantee CL football continue reading

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

Can's Wondergoal Stuns Watford As Liverpool Win Away Again

Watford 0, Liverpool 1 By Umarah Naz Embed from Getty Images   The tension in the room was palpable. Even if you weren’t in the room. The bank holiday Monday dragged on and on; joke after joke, meme after meme, gifs galore mocking Liverpool’s forthcoming Monday night trip to Watford. Liverpool fans after seeing the results this weekend before remembering they're going to lose to Watford pic.twitter.com/Kj0sdLBqyw — Football Whispers (@FB_WHISPERS) April 30, 2017 The extra spice was provided by both Manchester clubs dropping points at the weekend, handing Liverpool back the initiative in the Champions League race after losing 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

Woeful Wednesday as Liverpool Buckle Under Bournemouth Pressure

Wednesday turned out to be woeful for Liverpool football club. After being slapped with a two year academy transfer ban for breaching Premier League rules regarding a schoolboy from Stoke, Liverpool then learned that talisman, Sadio Mané’s season is almost certainly over. The Senegalese may require surgery on damaged cartilage in his left knee, which has left Klopp with a massive gap to fill for the remainder of the season. And to top it all off, the Reds were left deflated after conceding a customary, awful late goal against Bournemouth dropping two vital points in the process. Jurgen Klopp claimed continue reading

Points Shared at the Etihad as CL Qualification Remains Wide Open.

Manchester City 1, Liverpool 1. Match report by Umarah Naz. If ever an advert was needed for English Premier League football then Manchester City against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon was it. Embed from Getty Images Two teams who know no other way of playing than to attack the opponents goal. The 1-1 draw at the Etihad was a frenetic, end-to-end game that had everything but a winner. Some fantastic football, crunching tackles, mildly pathetic booing, unsuccessful penalty shouts, dubious yellow cards, possible red ones, some glaring misses, a cracking penalty, a great goal and to top it all off, the continue reading

Liverpool's top 6 record remains intact as Arsenal are sunk at Anfield

Liverpool 3, Arsenal 1 Match report by Umarah Naz. It’s never usually the case that a resounding 3-1 win over Arsenal would leave Reds infuriated but that’s what some may be feeling. Embed from Getty Images Infuriated because it comes a mere five days after a crushing defeat against a struggling Leicester team; one of those teams that Liverpool are so generously charitable against. Beating Arsenal should really be the perfect remedy for such fresh wounds but, unfortunately, it’s all been seen before, thus leaving everyone with a sense of dejavu. Just a few weeks ago, a fantastic win over continue reading

Liverpool Lament Leicester Loss

Leicester City 3, Liverpool 1 By Umarah Naz.  If there was any doubt that Claudio Ranieri’s brutal dismissal was orchestrated by the players then Leicester’s 3-1 drubbing of Liverpool put that to rest. Embed from Getty Images It seems the Italian’s departure was enough to spark life back into a dire Leicester side that hadn’t scored a goal in 540 minutes of football, yet stuck three past a Liverpool side still on holiday in La Manga. But as good as Leicester were, the Reds were shockingly abysmal. Much had been made of Jurgen Klopp taking full advantage of a belated continue reading

Sadio Sinks Spurs and Seduces Anfield

Liverpool 2, Tottenham Hotspur 0.  By Umarah Naz.  It seems fitting with Valentine’s Day around the corner that Liverpool have been reunited with their true love. Of course, I’m talking about Sadio Mané. Embed from Getty Images He has proven to be the heartbeat of the club this season, and his absence last month saw Liverpool’s pulse fall away with their title and cup dreams dying a cruel death. A top four berth is still very much alive for the Reds but the winless run needed to stop. And what better club to do it against then one of your continue reading
