Legendary ex wrestler Virgil, who was a very prominent figure in the 80’s and early 90’s, has decided to take the mickey out of some fans by posing as Liverpool’s newest signing Virgil van Dijk on twitter. Virgil, whose real name is Michael Jones, even asked fans in a poll what he should be doing with the 75 million that the Reds paid for his signature.
A nice bit of banter, especially if you know who Virgil was! Some of the younger chaps might not, and we can already see some folks falling for it on social media, wondering if it was the real VVD Continue reading
Liverpool’s defence has been a major reason for them not quite being able to challenge for the title despite having the attacking talents like Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane at their disposal.
The Reds, shockingly for a side that is currently top four in the Premier League, have the third WORST defensive record away from home in the league. Only West Ham and Stoke have conceded more on the road, and even bottom of the table Swansea have shipped in less than Jurgen Klopp’s side on their travels. Continue reading
Another attacking masterclass from Jurgen Klopp’s side as they brushed aside Swansea 5-0. It all started with a beautiful strike from the in-form Philippe Coutinho, set up by some very impressive pressing from his country mate Roberto Firmino. Continue reading
The Arsenal vs Liverpool fixture again proved to be one full of goals, but the Reds will be ruing their defensive lapses that converted what was looking to be an easy victory into a hard fought draw. There were only six and a half minutes in the second half between the visitors going 2-0 ahead and then falling 3-2 behind. Arsenal effectively scored their three goals in the space of five odd minutes, and all three were courtesy of defensive mistakes.
For the first and third Arsenal goals, right back Joe Gomez was guilty while much maligned goalkeeper Simon Mignolet will not have endeared himself to fans after he let Granit Xhaka’s powerful shot in.
Some more abysmal defending from the Reds Continue reading
John Terry has named Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher in his all time Premier League XI. Midfielder Gerrard and defender Carragher are the only two Liverpool players in the list (it has 8 Manchester United players!). Carragher partners Rio Ferdinand in the heart of midfield while Gerrard plays alongside Paul Scholes.
After seeing his own name in the XI, Carra jokingly accused Terry of being after a job at Sky! Continue reading
Liverpool became the first Premier League side to score three or more goals in four consecutive away games as they produced an attacking masterclass to demolish Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
The two games between Eddie Howe’s Cherries and Jurgen Klopp’s Reds last season had produced a total of eleven goals, including a seven goal thriller in the corresponding fixture last November. Howe opted to keep faith with the same back four that had given a good account of themselves in midweek against Manchester United, but made changes en masse in midfield and upfront, with Joshua King the only survivor from the trip to Old Trafford.
