On This Day 13th November

On this day 13th November 1974 we signed one of my favourite players. A player that rightly went on to enjoy legendary status with us. Step forward the one and only Terry McDermott. Think of the most industrious, hard working, energetic midfielder you can imagine, then compare those attributes to those McDermott displayed week in, […]

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, […]

Whats In Reserve

Going to first team matches enables fans to see at first hand the talent available to Jurgen Klopp. But beneath the first XI, whats in reserve? Are there any budding Sadio Mane’s or Adam Lallana’s? Do we have any up and coming centre backs capable of challenging current incumbents, Matip, Klavan and Lovren? Liverpool 4, […]

Arsenal Blown Away With Ease

Liverpool were at their scintillating best as they swept aside one of their big rivals, Arsenal. Following on from their impressive attacking display against Hoffenheim a few days earlier, Liverpool totally dominated the Gunners. In fact it is fair to say that Arsenal were blown away with ease. The game ended 4-0 but in all […]

Opening Of The New Main Stand

Finally the new Main Stand has been completed. And what a stand it is. At Liverpool’s request, the Premier League allowed Liverpool to begin their 2013/14 campaign with three consecutive away games. This was so that the new stand could be satisfactorily completed. I can well remember the opening of the new Centenary Stand (the […]

Liverpool With Stunning Comeback

Liverpool quite brilliantly staged one of the most stunning comebacks Anfield has ever seen. Well, not only Anfield for that matter. The magnitude of the comeback in terms of the quality of the opposition was quite staggering. In the first leg a week before, Liverpool earned a credible 1-1 draw in what must have been […]

Hillsborough – The 25th Anniversary

Like every year, emotions were running high yesterday as an estimated 25,000 people packed into Anfield to show their respects to the 96 Liverpool fans who, on 15th April 1989, went to a football match and never came home. The tone for yesterday was set on Sunday really with an emotional Steven Gerrard shedding a […]

West Ham 1 Liverpool 2 – The Reds Edge Closer

Many pundits often say that to be a successful team you have to acquire the acumen or the nous to win ugly. In other words, to be able to win a match even though you are not playing particularly well. The sign of true champions is to be able to grind out a result when […]

Liverpool March On In March

After the victory against Swansea we faced some very testing away fixtures in March – three in succession as it happens. The first one at Southampton had “difficult”and “banana skin” stamped right through it, but Liverpool more than acquitted themselves when they came away with a relatively comfortable 3-0 victory. I say “relatively” as Southampton […]

On This Day – 20th February 1991

I remember the day so well. Two main events that day. One on the field and one off it. The on-field event was an epic and one of, if not the best, Merseyside derby. Liverpool and Everton locked horns for the third game in a row when they met each other at Goodison Park in […]
