LUDOGORETS 2 LIVERPOOL 2

A cold, cold night. A proper cold. Crisp, not dank. Supplements your bones rather than making them ache. Christ, I love Eastern Europe at this time of year. We try to come here every year. Makes winter real in a way another downpour doesn’t. Sofia was plain odd...
Liverpool 0 Real Madrid 3

Liverpool 0 Real Madrid 3

LIVERPOOL: MIGNOLET CAN REIN SUPREME

LIVERPOOL: MIGNOLET CAN REIN SUPREME

LIVERPOOL: WHAT’S THE SCRIPT, BRENDAN?

LIVERPOOL: WHAT’S THE SCRIPT, BRENDAN?

LIVERPOOL would bust lungs, strain muscles and push for victory like a sprinter at the Olympic Games with the finish line in sight and a record time on the clock. They would relentlessly square up to opponents in their own half – get in their faces, force them on to...
