It’s curtains until January….

Transfer windows.  They divide the football community.  Some love them, with the drama they bring; others loathe that they carry on until the season has started.  I do prefer them to when transfers could happen all season long, but in recent years Liverpool have done so badly in them that it’s almost like it would […]

What a difference a week makes… oh wait hang on….

Last two games saw us win one nil.  Up next was United.  Would I be happy with another one nil…. you betcha.  Did I expect it?  No… not in the slightest.  Now that’s not to say I didn’t think we could win, on the contrary.  The thing is Toure was out injured, and van Persie […]

Brace yourselves Liverpool fans…. it’s about to re-start

So, the summer started with turmoil for Liverpool, with Kenny Dalglish’s contract being terminated and Liverpool looking for a new manager.  That led to a large amount of column inches dedicated to Liverpool, which still carried on even after Brendan Rodgers was appointed.   However, soon after that, the Euros started so the sporting media suddenly had […]
