Why Van Dijk Devastation Could Be The Making Of This Side

Why Van Dijk Devastation Could Be The Making Of This Side

AT 2.25pm on Saturday, a wave of nausea hit me. At first it was a matter of personal pride. Since the introduction of VAR, I’ve subconsciously altered the way I celebrate goals. Anybody who sits near me in the ground would probably be able to tell you the same, so...

Everton 2 Liverpool 2: Match Review

Everton v Liverpool: The Big Match Preview

I DON'T take Liverpool losing very well. Most draws involving The Reds bring me down. Getting tonked 7-2 by a side as mediocre as Aston Villa didn’t sit well. If it hadn’t been for the need to become ever more immersed in my day job and the ‘fire fighting’ required...
