CITYTALK: RUBIN KAZANT

CITYTALK: RUBIN KAZANT

NEIL ATKINSON, Rob Gutmann, John Gibbons and Andy Kelly of the Liverpool Echo get stuck into Liverpool going to Kazan and getting a much deserved 0-1 win. The partnership between Lovren and Sakho for The Reds, the running of the full backs and the Emre Can Joe Allen...
RUBIN KAZAN 0 LIVERPOOL 1: PLAYER RATINGS

RUBIN KAZAN 0 LIVERPOOL 1: PLAYER RATINGS

APPARENTLY at some point between playing at Anfield and now, Rubin Kazan have changed their name to FC Rubin. Feels like the kind of thing that should only be allowed in the summer, that. Luckily they haven’t also signed a lot of good players, and Liverpool...

RUBIN KAZAN 0 LIVERPOOL 1: MATCH REVIEW

RUBIN KAZAN v LIVERPOOL – EUROPA LEAGUE PREVIEW

RUBIN Kazan. What can you say about them that hasn’t been said before? Firstly, how about “it’s close”? No-one is saying that. Perhaps “it’s easy to get to.” No-one is saying that either. Because these things are lies, it isn’t close, it...

LIVERPOOL 1 RUBIN KAZAN 1: PLAYER RATINGS

ANOTHER frustrating Anfield night. Even if they are still getting to know the manager, and for many each other, the team should have had enough to beat the 12th best team in Russia playing for so long with 10 men. Could do with a win Sunday. Simon Mignolet: 7...

LIVERPOOL 1 RUBIN KAZAN 1: MATCH REVIEW

WALKING out. Walking along. Me, Ben Jono, Mike Girling, Sam Brockle. “Don’t really know what you say about that one.” Walking down towards the brow. “One of them. Got to write a match report.” “About that?” asks Ben Jono....

EUROPA LEAGUE PREVIEW: LIVERPOOL V RUBIN KAZAN

LIVERPOOL’S third Europa League Group B game is a first look at Rubin Kazan — and Klopp’s first look at The Kop, or at least one that is singing to his tune. In fact, he will have a whole stadium of Liverpool fans to eye up and down, if he so...
