LIVERPOOL ON SKY WITH DIAMONDS

LIVERPOOL ON SKY WITH DIAMONDS

BIG BEN struck 11, the transfer window ‘slammed’ shut. Jim White made a noise that sounded like he enjoys deadline day a little too much. Reporters were getting it in the ear, so to speak, and Liverpool ended the day without any new players coming through...
LIVERPOOL: THE RETURN OF THE DIAMOND?

LIVERPOOL: THE RETURN OF THE DIAMOND?

I PRESUMED that we’d seen the last of it. When Luis Suarez departed for pastures new, the chances of Liverpool regularly starting matches with two strikers simultaneously appeared remote. They looked remoter still when you factored in the the £20m acquisition of Lazar...

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...

LIVERPOOL: A LITTLE PREVIEW OF THE REMIX

By Paul Cope USUALLY I DON’T DO THIS. But it’s 2.40am on the Sunday before the season kicks off and I’ve just been out and frequented a couple of Rob Gutmann’s new bars and, having considered all we’ve spoken about on my walk home through...
