Liverpool FC 2015/2016 Season Review

Image
The 2015/2016 season saw the Reds swap Brendan Rodgers for Jurgen Klopp and reach two finals in the process. A great start from Klopp in such a short space of time very nearly paid off with some silverware but the team couldn't quite find fifth gear in both the League Cup and Europa League finals. Finishing 8th in the league however on a total of 60 points was below par for the Reds, we can only hope a summer of signings will improve things for next season!
August Liverpool kicked off the season against Stoke, looking to improve on their embarrassing loss at the hands of the Potters at the end of the previous season. A 1-0 win thanks to a wonderful late strike from Philippe Coutinho was a perfect start for the Reds under Brendan Rodgers. A week later another 1-0 win for Liverpool followed against Bournemouth.

Towards the end of August the Reds lined up against Arsenal and collected a 0-0 draw, it was the final game in August though that really riled a lot of Liverpool fans. A 3-0 …

Heartbreak In Basel

Emotions haven't quite fully settled yet, I don't think I've fully got rid of all the anger but I am starting to move past it. A summer of top class purchases underneath Jurgen Klopp is enough to get me excited. Last night however cannot be forgotten, the Reds must learn from it and never let it happen again.
Things started pretty well for Liverpool as the travelling fans were in full voice in Basel. It was a relatively slow start but one that was rewarded in the latter stages of the second half with a beautiful goal from Daniel Sturridge. His outside of the boot effort curled perfectly into the back of the net and Jurgen Klopp's side were finally underway. Sevilla had offered little in the first half and whilst Liverpool weren't exactly dominant, there was no fear there, it felt like we had them on the ropes. Especially after almost bagging a second from a Dejan Lovren header only to see it disallowed for offside thanks to an interfering Daniel Sturridge.

EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL: Liverpool V Sevilla

Image
As hundreds of Liverpool fans continue their epic journeys across Europe, several thousands more sit at home just waiting for kick off on Wednesday evening. There's some real final fever in the air for Reds all over the world and while rivals will be quick to highlight the fact that it's "only the Europa League" they will have to do way more than that to throw Kopites off the party train.

Jurgen Klopp has already led his side to a final this year but after miraculously pushing Borussia Dortmund to one side and slotting three goals past Sevilla, this time out it feels like the silverware could be ours. I'm a bit of a weirdo to be honest as I actually secretly kind of want us to go 1-0 down, just for the thrill of the comeback. If you could guarantee me that we'd go on to win despite Sevilla scoring first, I'd wish for that all day long.

Whatever happens on Wednesday evening it's set to be an enthralling fixture between two top European clubs.
