  1. It's Our Year! Again.....

    Thanks guys it's been enjoyable to do and to do it so far with only one loss is remarkable Tuesday 10th April 2018 Uefa Champions League Quarter Final Second Leg PSG 5(7) – (4)0 Bayern Tottenham 3(4) – (2)0 Real Madrid Wednesday 11th April 2018 Uefa Champions League – Quarter Final Second Leg Benfica (H) We had a chance to give ourselves a two goal cushion in the tie early on as we was awarded a penalty for a clear handball by Fernandez. The normally reliable Milner stepped up but saw his penalty well saved. We almost took the lead just before half time as Coutinho saw his free kick go just over the bar. Half Time – Liverpool 0 (2) – (1) 0 Benfica We got the two goal cushion we wanted straight after half time as the Benfica keeper played a poor long ball up straight to Roberto. He headed down to Wijnaldum and he in turn sent Salah racing away. The Egyptian unselfishly pulled it back to Firmino to tap in from eight yards out. The match became as good as over with fifteen left to go as Henderson found Salah who broke the offside trap and managed to slide the ball in at the near post. Full Time – Liverpool 2 (4) – (1) 0 Benfica Milner missed pen 16, Firmino 48, Salah 75 Lineup (4-3-3) – Karius, Roberto (65), Moreno, Matip, De Ligt, Can, Milner (65), Wijnaldum, Salah, Coutinho (75), Firmino Subs: Mignolet, Gomez (65), Robertson, Henderson (65), Lallana, Mané, Woodburn (75) Uefa Champions League Quarter Final Second Leg Chelsea 2 (2) – (1) 0 Man Utd Friday 13th April 2018 The draw for the Uefa Champions League Semi Final has been made and is as follows: PSG vs Liverpool Tottenham vs Chelsea Barclays Premier League Southampton 2 – 2 Bournemouth
  2. It's Our Year! Again.....

    Saturday 7th April 2018 Barclays Premier League – Match 34 Bournemouth (H) Thanks to City’s draw in midweek we had the chance to secure the title today in front of our own fans with 4 games to spare. We got the opening goal we needed after fifteen minutes as Milner sent a great long ball to Mané on the right flank. The winger in turn sent a great cross into the 6 yard box that was volleyed in by Sturridge. We should have given ourselves clear daylight as Mané led a counter down the right flank and sent a great cross for Woodburn to tap in but the Welshman somehow fired over from five yards. Half Time – Liverpool 1 – 0 Bournemouth We got a second goal straight after the break as Aké played a suicidal back pass towards Begovic that was easily intercepted by Sturridge and the striker easily got his second goal sliding the ball around Begovic. The match and the title was as good as ours on the hour mark as Moreno put in a cross which in turn was headed down by Milner and volleyed in by Sturridge for his hat trick. We got a fourth not long after as we caught Bournemouth napping in possession. Salah quickly sprinted down the right and chipped over to Sturridge and he once again blasted into the bottom corner. Both Sturridge and Milner were withdrawn then to standing ovations. It wasn’t long after when the final whistle went and the league title finally came back to Anfield after a dominant result fittingly summed up a dominant league season. Full Time – Liverpool 4 – 0 Bournemouth Sturridge 15 47 60 66 Lineup (4-2-3-1) – Karius, Clyne, Moreno, Matip, Gomez, Henderson, Milner (74), Mané, Woodburn (42), Lallana, Sturridge (74) Subs: Mignolet, De Ligt, Robertson, Roberto (74), Coutinho, Salah (42), Firmino (74) Chelsea 3 – 2 Arsenal Leicester 0 – 3 Burnley Newcastle 1 – 3 Crystal Palace Southampton 2 – 2 Man Utd Stoke 0 – 1 West Brom Tottenham 1 – 1 Man City Sunday 8th April 2018 Swansea 1 – 1 Huddersfield Watford 3 – 0 Everton Monday 9th April 2018 Brighton 1 – 0 West Ham
  3. It's Our Year! Again.....

    Tuesday 3rd April 2018 Uefa Champions League – Quarter Final First Leg Benfica (A) We got off to a great start after we broke down a Benfica attack and made a two man couter attack. De Ligt fed it straight to Salah who then Firmino in the middle. The Brazilian gave it back to Salah who did well to get past his man and then cross in for Firmino to tap in at the near post. We almost scored a goal of real quality ten minutes later as we must have passed around at least 30 times that was finally fed into the run of Coutinho who poorly shot at the keeper. We had to thank Mignolet before the break making a world class save denying Haris from two yards out. Half Time – Benfica 0 – 1 Liverpool Benfica got an equaliser straight after the break as a long ball into the box from a free kick was headed down by Luisao and blasted in from close range by Fejsa. We retook the lead fifteen minutes before time and got a crucial second away goal. Mané burst down the right side of the area and put in an average cross that wasn’t dealt with. The ball fell kindly for Firmino to tap in at the far post that turned out to be the winner and put us in a commanding position. Full Time – Benfica 1 – 2 Liverpool Fejsa 48; Firmino 11 75 Lineup (4-3-3) – Mignolet, Roberto, Robertson (65), Matip, De Ligt, Henderson, Wijnaldum (71), Lallana (65), Salah, Coutinho, Firmino Subs:

  4. It's Our Year! Again.....

    Funnily enough that's the exact same thought I had at the time Saturday 31st March 2018 Barclays Premier League - Match 33 Southampton (H) We got off to a good start after fifteen minutes as first Coutinho had a long range shot well saved by Forster. From the resulting corner, Coutinho swung into the near post which was flicked on by Matip and volleyed in by Milner. Five minutes later we got a second as the same routine worked again at the corner but this time Matip headed in himself. Our pre match training on set pieces had worked a treat. Five minutes before the break the game was as good as over. First, Lemina was sent off for a seconf bookable offense on Coutinho. Then from the resulting free kick Coutinho curled into the top corner from 35 yards out. Half Time – Liverpool 3 – 0 Southampton We had a goal disallowed straight after half time as Matip tapped in after a scrable at a corner but the ref had already blown for a free kick. Southampton had to finish the game with 9 men as Tadic got injured after using all 3 subs. We got a fourth goal before the end as Moreno was given space outside the area and blasted into the top corner. Full Time - Liverpool 4 – 0 Southampton Milner 15, Matip 20, Coutinho 41, Moreno 78; Lemina s/o 40 Lineup (4-2-3-1) – Mignolet, Clyne, Moreno, Klavan, Matip, Can, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain (68), Coutinho (58), Firmino (58), Sturridge Subs: Karius, Roberto, Robertson, Lallana (58), Mané (68), Salah, Woodburn (58) Arsenal 0 – 1 Stoke Burnley 1 – 0 Chelsea Crystal Palace 1 – 1 Tottenham Everton 0 – 0 Brighton West Ham 3 – 0 Leicester Man Utd 1 – 0 Newcastle Sunday 1st April 2018 The monthly awards for March are out and Phillipe Coutinho has won the Player of the Month Award.

  5. It's Our Year! Again.....

    Saturday 17th March 2018 FA Cup – Sixth Round Stoke (H) Stoke were looking to get revenge over their Carabao Cup final defeat to us but were dealt a blow after four minutes. Oxlade-Chamberlain put on a burst of pace down the righ hand side and crossed in which was headed away by Zouma. The ball was then nodded down by Wijnaldum and Woodburn fired into the bottom corner from the edge of the area. No further chances came from there with us holding off a defensive minded Stoke with ease. Half Time – Liverpool 1 – 0 Stoke We should have extended our lead ten minutes after the break as more good wing play by Oxlade-Chamberlain found Dolberg at the near post but he headed wide. The forward made no mistake five minutes from time though as Moreno sent in a looping cross to the back post that was headed in by Dolberg for his tenth of the season. Full Time – Liverpool 2 – 0 Stoke Woodburn 4, Dolberg 85 Lineup (4-2-3-1) – Mignolet, Clyne, Moreno, Klavan, Gomez, Grujic (67), Wijnaldum (67), Oxlade-Chamberlain, Woodburn, Mané (13), Dolberg Subs: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, De Ligt, Lallana (13), Roberto (67), Salah, Firmino (67) Barclays Premier League Arsenal 1 – 0 Leicester West Brom 1 – 1 Chelsea Sunday 18th March 2018 Burnley 1 – 1 Brighton Everton 2 – 2 Tottenham Monday 19th March 2018 The draw for the FA Cup Semi Final has been made and is as follows: Liverpool vs Watford Man City vs Bournemouth Crystal Palace 2 – 0 Southampton Tuesday 27th March 2018 Kasper Dolberg has twisted his ankle on international duty and will be out for 3 to 4 weeks.

Mata had his shot blocked in a crowded area and the ball fell kindly for Coutinho. The Brazilian did brilliant to get past two United players and then crossing for Firmino to nod down for Lallana to easily tap in. United were struggling to break us down and handling the lively Coutinho who had a speculative drive go over after easily going past two players. Half Time – Man Utd 0 – 1 Liverpool United got an equaliser soon after the break as they overloaded us down their right flank. Mata sent Valencia away down the right hand side and he crossed in for Lukaka to head into the top corner. Neither side created any more chances and settled for a draw that qualifies us for next seasons Champions League.

  7. It's Our Year! Again.....

    Saturday 10th March 2018 Barclays Premier League – Match 31 Crystal Palace (H) A win against an over achieving Palace would see us seal a top four position but we were pretty wasteful with our finishing. Robertson played through Mané to be one on one with the keeper but he his effort wide. Mané then had another good chance as he put a free header over from a corner by Oxlade-Chamberlain. Half Time – Liverpool 0 – 0 Crystal Palace Mané must have left his shooting boots at home as he wasted another good chance shooting straight at keeper Khune after a nice through ball by Lallana. We couldn’t break Palace down from there and had to settle for a point. Full Time – Liverpool 0 – 0 Crystal Palace Lineup (4-3-3) – Mignolet, Clyne, Robertson, De Ligt, Matip, Can, Henderson, Lallana, Mané (62), Oxlade-Chamberlain (72), Dolberg (62) Subs: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Wijnaldum, Coutinho (72), Salah (62), Firmino (62) Tottenham 3 – 0 West Ham Brighton 2 – 1 Arsenal Chelsea 1 – 1 Huddersfield Man Utd 3 – 1 Bournemouth Southampton 1 – 3 Man City Stoke 1 – 0 Swansea Sunday 11th March 2018 Watford 0 – 1 Burnley Newcastle 1 – 1 Everton Monday 12th March 2018 Leicester 2 – 3 West Brom
  8. It's Our Year! Again.....

    I'm going to speed up the frequency of my posts as I want to quickly finish the story off now i've finally had time to finish the season off. Tuesday 6th March 2018 Uefa Champions League – Last 16 Second Leg Juventus (H) With us taking a 4-1 lead from the first leg into this match I made some changes to rest a few legs. Juventus should have taken the lead inside ten minutes as a stunning one touch passing move swept past our defense and was hit wide by Mandzukic who should have scored. We should have then took the lead as a great cross by Mané found Coutinho six yards out but he embarrassingly put it well over. The reverse combination worked soon after though as Coutinho crossed towards the back post for Mané to volley in. Half Time – Liverpool 1 (5) – (1) 0 Juventus The same combination for the goal nearly worked again after the break as Mané out-paced the Juventus defense down the right side and crossed over to Coutinho who could only head straight at Buffon. Dybala then almost equalised with a moment of brilliance as he tried to chip Mignolet but saw it hit the cross bar. The youngster then saw his luck get even worse as he saw a penalty saved by Mignolet after a shirt pull by De Ligt. Full Time – Liverpool 1 (5) – (1) 0 Juventus Mané 22 Lineup (4-3-3) – Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, De Ligt, Gomez, Henderson, Milner (37), Wijnaldum (72), Mané, Coutinho (61), Woodburn Subs: Karius, Matip, Roberto (37), Can, Lallana (72), Salah (61), Firmino Uefa Champions League Last 16 Second Leg Benfica 2 (3)(e) – (2) 1 Leipzig Benfica win after extra time.

Andrew Robertson has won Goal of the Month for his strike against Everton. I have won the Manager of the Month Award for the fourth time after winning 4 league games out of 4 in February. Saturday 3rd March 2018 Barclays Premier League – Match 30 Man City (A) We came into this game 13 points clear of 2nd placed City knowing a win would give us chance of sealing the title in a few games time. A bright start could have seen us being three up within fifteen minutes. First Coutinho, found Lallana unmarked at a free kick but he fired wide. Then a quick counter by us saw Salah heading onto Lallana but he again fired wide. Our early pressure eventually paid off as Salah out-paced Mendy on the right flank and passed along the six yard box for Coutinho to tap in. City equalised straight away as D.Silva chipped up to Aguero and the Argentinian out-paced our defense, went around Karius and tapped into an empty net. Half Time - Man City 1 – 1 Liverpool City took the lead ten minutes after the break as Sané put on a burst of pace down the left side and crossed into an umarked Jésus to head in. We equalised soon after though as Bravo gave the ball straight back to us. Firmino then sent Coutinho running through and he blasted into the top corner for his second goal. Not long after that we retook the lead as we robbed the ball off Mendy and Roberto sent Lallana running through with the midfielder wrong footing Bravo with a neat finish. We held on firm from there for a vital 3 points that sees us go 15 points clear of a now 2nd placed Chelsea with 8 games left.

  11. It's Our Year! Again.....

    Wednesday 28th February 2018 Barclays Premier League – Match 29 Everton (H) A poor start from us saw Everton take the lead inside ten minutes. A neat Everton counter found Mirallas in space down the right and the winger crossed into the path of an unmarked Barkley to volley past Mignolet. We soon turned it around though with some quality goals. First, a neat passing move was ended by Alexander-Arnold teeing up Oxlade-Chamberlain to curl into the top corner from the edge of the area. Then we countered an Everton attack and Mané crossed into the near post that was tapped in by Alexander-Arnold. Half Time – Liverpool 2 – 1 Everton We got a two goal cushion not long after half time due to a bit of luck. We played a corner straight to the edge of the Area for Henderson to strike and he saw his effort deflected into his own net by Holgate. Everton should have pulled one back ten minutes from time as Barkley led a counter and fed an unmarked Sandro in the box but he blasted over. The three points were sealed at the end as Alexander-Arnold passed over to Robertson in space and the left back fired into the top corner from twenty five yards out. Full Time – Liverpool 4 – 1 Everton Oxlade-Chamberlain 16, Alexander-Arnold 25, Holgate o/g 57, Robertson 88; Barkley 8 Lineup (4-3-3) – Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Gomez, Matip (71), Henderson (57), Wijnaldum (57), Milner, Mané, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Dolberg Subs: Karius, Roberto (57), De Ligt (71), Can, Lallana (57), Salah, Firmino Chelsea 0 – 0 Stoke
  12. It's Our Year! Again.....

    Thanks mate it's been a nice save and i'm looking forward to seeing what the end outcome is. Friday 23rd February 2018 Newcastle 3 – 1 Burnley Saturday 24th February 2018 Man Utd 1 – 0 Man City Leicester 0 – 1 Swansea Watford 2 – 0 West Brom Southampton 2 – 0 West Ham Sunday 25th February 2018 Carabao Cup – Final Stoke (Wembley) A great first half by us saw us being 2 up at half time thanks to a brace by Firmino. First, Henderson caught Shaqiri dallying on the ball and immediately sent Firmino through and the Brazilian smashed his effort in off the bar. He should have had his second when a long ball by Can found Firmino but he could only place his shot wide. He did get his second on the stroke of half time though. Stoke could only clear our corner straight to Can who then fed it along for Firmino to volley into the top corner from twenty five yards. Half Time – Liverpool 2 – 0 Stoke An end to end second half saw both sides wasting good chances. For Stoke a quick counter led by Berahino and the striker sent through Fletcher but he wasted his chance firing wide with just Karius to beat.

    Tuesday 20th February 2018 Barclays Premier League – Match 28 Huddersfield (A) We should have took an early lead after two minutes as Firmino found the run of Roberto from right back but his effort found the side netting. We did take the lead though halfway through the half as Mané’s cross to the back stick was about to be tapped in by Salah but was instead put in his own net by Schindler. We got a second before as break from a penalty as Firmino was adjudged to have been pushed by El Kaoutari. The reliable Milner made no mistake putting the ball in the top corner. Half Time – Huddersfield 0 – 2 Liverpool The hosts should have pulled one back straight from kickoff after excellent buildup play but Williams could only shoot wide. They made no mistake next time though as a great passing move started by keeper Lossl was finished by the one-two between Mounié and Palmer with the former heading in. We failed to create anything in the second half but luckily the work had been done in the first half. Full Time – Huddersfield 1 – 2 Liverpool Mounié 53; Schindler o/g 21, Milner pen 38 Lineup (4-3-3) – Karius, Roberto, Moreno, De Ligt, Matip, Can, Milner (63), Coutinho (72), Salah (72), Mané, Firmino Subs: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Henderson (63), Lallana (72), Woodburn (72), Dolberg Uefa Champions League Last 16 First Leg Dortmund 1 – 2 Chelsea PSG 3 – 1 Man City Wednesday 21st February 2018 Ben Woodburn has pulled his ankle ligaments and will be out for two weeks.

  15. It's Our Year! Again.....

    Saturday 17th February 2018 FA Cup – Fifth Round Norwich (A) A completely different 11 for this one and we got off to a great start. Norwich failed to clear our corner and Lallana found Grujic in space for him to volley in. We had a couple of good chances in the first half that we should have done better on. Woodburn made a great run down the left and crossed in for Dolberg to volley wide. Then Lallana had a free header from a Henderson cross but the header lacked any power to trouble the keeper. Half Time – Norwich 0 – 1 Liverpool We should have doubled our lead after half time as Dolberg sent Oxlade-Chamberlain away down the right flank but he could only shoot at the keeper. Norwich’s task became more difficult with fifteen minutes left as Tettey was sent off for a second yellow card. The result was wrapped up at the end as a neat passing move was finished off by Wijnaldum on the edge of the box. Full Time – Norwich 0 – 2 Liverpool Tettey s/o 74, Grujic 6, Wijnaldum 90 Lineup (4-3-3) – Mignolet, Clyne (64), Robertson, Gomez, Klavan, Grujic, Henderson, Lallana (64), Oxlade-Chamberlain, Woodburn, Dolberg (72) Subs: Karius, Alexander-Arnold (64), De Ligt, Can, Wijnaldum (64), Firmino, Sturridge (72) Monday 19th February 2018 The draw for the FA Cup Sixth Round has been made and we have been drawn at home to Stoke.
