Saturday Night Football

Well, it’s closer isn’t it. What is, you may ask? Today saw the announcement that there will be live Saturday night football on TV. This further kick in the proverbials for match going fans is to commence from the 2019/20 season. Which brings me to my original statement of ‘it’s closer isn’t it’. To clarify, […]

A Point Gained Or Two Points Lost?

It could have been better, it could have been worse. Ultimately a point each seemed to be fair all round really. So was it a point gained or two points lost? At about 10 minutes before half time, my mate and I in The Kop agreed that we would be happy to get to half-time […]

Expect The Unexpected

Speaking to a few Reds fans after the game and I think it’s fair to say that the final score of 3-3 was no big surprise. It should have been, but what this current Liverpool side has taught us is to expect the unexpected. In recent years we have had a fair few roller-coaster games […]

Did Maribor Remind You Of Anyone?

After the all too easy 7-0 away victory against Maribor a couple of weeks ago, the return leg was considered to be a formality. That is an easy mistake to make. We all thought the 2nd leg against Stromsgodset in the 1974/75 Cup Winners Cup would also be a walkover. In actual fact we struggled […]

Well Earned Three Points For Liverpool

It certainly didn’t start out that way, but in the end it was a well earned three points for Liverpool. As it is, I can’t give my own view on the game as I didn’t go on Saturday. A 5pm family get together meant that I offloaded my ticket. But, like virtually every game this […]

Liverpool Fans Are Getting Restless

Yesterday’s emphatic scoreline of Tottenham 4, Liverpool 1 does not really fully reflect how the game went. Yes, Tottenham were clinical, yes Tottenham were good, but were they 4-1 that good? Tottenham fans will probably say that they were. But as ever with Liverpool, a scoreline does not necessarily paint the complete picture. Is it […]

Liverpool Write A Piece Of History

Well, it finally happened didn’t it. We’ve been saying for a few weeks that someday, someone will get a good pasting from us. Sadly for Maribor it was them. Everything seemed to click as Liverpool write a piece of history. Already holding the Champions League record for their 8-0 home win against Besiktas in 2007, […]
