Cardiff City 0 Liverpool 2: The Match Review

Cardiff City 0 Liverpool 2: The Match Review

EIGHTY eight points. I whisper things the city sings them back to you. I am my age. I can't argue with the facts on that one. I am my age. These lads have more points than anyone since 1988, at which point it was 90 points from 40 games. The 78-79 team were a great...

FC Porto v Liverpool: The Champions League Preview

I WAS in Sheffield on April 15, 1989. I was 22 years, four months and 10 days old. I try to think about that day as little as possible. The years have passed to become the decades that are now drifting by at pace. My memory of that April day is razor sharp. I think...

Liverpool Close The Chelsea Chapter With Another Controlled Display

IT’S all people have been talking about. The battle between rival regions over the throne. Wild stories, fantastic creatures and plenty of very sexy moments. But enough about the Premier League title race (raises an eyebrow in a pathetic attempt to suggest I had you...

Eighteen And Waiting: A Look Back At Liverpool’s Last League Title

THE gleeful face of Kenny Dalglish in the Anfield stands at the weekend was a reminder of a time so long ago now, it seems like another place – a different world. In so many ways it was. When that same face beamed with joy 29 years ago, there was no stand at Anfield...

Liverpool 2 Chelsea 0: The Match Review

Liverpool 2 Chelsea 0: The Match Ratings

I DON'T know about you but I need this fucking season to hurry up and end. I’m like fourth season Bubs at this point. A ghost of a man. Hollowed out. Somehow, this morning I agreed to buy my bird a caravan if The Reds win the league. A fucking caravan. Like a proper...

Liverpool v Chelsea: The Big Match Preview

HERE we are again and here they are again. It’s 2014 all over again. Us on the edge of fulfilling our destiny and them cast in the role of spiteful dream wreckers. There was no need for them to take the title from us and hand it to Manchester City in 2014, and equally...

How Liverpool Recovered From Heartbreak At The Hands Of Chelsea

OF course it still hurts. It still makes you drop your head and shrug in a way that only heartbreak can. I still want to put my arms around Steven Gerrard and hide him from the lenses in the way he had to for his crestfallen teammate days later. Liverpool 0 Chelsea 2...

WENT to Portugal once. Room had no hot water. Jib it. Alisson: 8 Backs himself, like, doesn’t he? First minute, I’m him getting the ball to feet and I’m fucking head down, blammo, kicking it into the Atlantic. This fella is looking to play at every opportunity. Makes...
