Preston & LFC Tour

Liverpool kicked off their 2013/2014 pre-season with a match in memory of the great Bill Shankly at Deepdale. With some new signings under his belt Brendan Rodgers was able to put on show some of his purchases and it was Coutinho that got the scoring underway from the penalty spot for the Reds in a sunny Preston.

The next goal came from youngster Jordan Ibe (have you sussed the pronunciation yet?). Jordan showed real confidence in his first goal for the Reds and looked elated afterwards. Just after the hour mark Raheem Sterling added his name to the growing list of scorers with a quick break and a lovely finish. Finally Iago Aspas found the back of the net for Liverpool. Aspas's shot from just outside the area was superb and completed a confident 4-0 win for Liverpool.

Next Liverpool travelled to Asia for the first leg of their much awaited tour. First up were the Indonesia XI, some simply phenomenal support was on show in Indonesia, as seen throughout the tour but the poignant i…

Pre-Season Starts Saturday!

Have you ever been so excited to play Preston?! ...

In all seriousness though it's a very nice pre-season fixture for the Reds to be starting with as the match will commemorate a year that marks 100 years since the great man Bill Shankly's birth. Shankly spent over a decade as a player at Preston and was loved in Lancashire and of course he is a Liverpool managerial legend. On Saturday Preston and Liverpool will kick off their pre-season with a match in honour of the very special man.

The match on Saturday will kick off at 15:00 and it's available to watch on LFC TV. I'm off to the seaside on Saturday and so I won't be able to watch but I will be catching up when I return home as I love to get an idea of what the youngsters and new signings have to offer in pre-season. If you see anything special feel free to drop us a tweet!

After Preston, Liverpool are taking quite a big leap and they head off to Indonesia then Australia followed by Thailand. The Reds will then …

Post On Behalf Of EAD Solicitors Looking For Hillsborough Witnesses

I was contacted recently by a group of solicitors who were looking to reach people that were present at Hillsborough or were witnesses to the unfolding disaster. I clearly stated in my response to the solicitors that I did not reside in Liverpool but I did have followers/readers from the city and so I wanted to help them if I could. I've always felt it of utmost importance to oust the truth about Hillsborough, especially as somebody living in an area where a lot of people are STILL unaware of the real story and so if this helps in any way possible then fantastic.

If you feel as though you can help EAD with their enquiries or you know somebody that can then please do not hesitate to contact them. The following section of text is from EAD Solicitors

The Hillsborough Stadium Disaster is something that provokes strong emotions in the heart of most Merseyside citizens, if not the whole of the UK. However, it is an event that has yet to have a clear truth confined to the history books.   

Transfers For LFC So Far...

I'm sure you've all been keeping an eye on that transfer window so far this summer and hasn't it been interesting? Usually as a Liverpool fan you end up sitting around bored at this stage of the season until some relatively unknown youngster forces the L4 transfer window open and we finally see a bit of action. It's different this year though, there's been a hell of a lot of talk and a decent amount of action and below is a round up of the ins and outs at Liverpool Football Club so far...


First in for manager Brendan Rodgers was the out of contract Kolo Toure. After finishing up with Manchester City the 32 year old seemed keen to continue his career at a top level and whilst some people have been having digs at the signing I think for a free transfer Brendan's done a savvy deal there. With the missing experience of Jamie Carragher, Toure even if he doesn't play week in, week out will bring some wisdom to the dressing room, an invaluable asset in my eyes…
