Liverpool FC 2016/2017 Season Review

Image
Yes I know, this post is ridiculously late on the blog but better late than never ay? Below I provide you with a quick rundown of each month of the 2016/2017 season. 

Was 4th place good enough? Why do I think Klopp can often be as stubborn as hell? Why did 2017 contain one of the worst matches I have ever watched as a Liverpool fan? Read on to find out.
AugustLiverpool kicked off Jurgen Klopp's full season as manager in a game away to Arsenal. The Reds have had some interesting fixtures with Arsene Wenger's side over recent years and this opening tie was no different.

Seven goals were scored in the game, four of which came from Liverpool. I was left with a strange sense of disappointment at the result though after I bet 50p on a 4-4 scoreline for a hundred quid haha.
The Reds also picked up a draw with Spurs this month but famously were beaten 2-0 by Burnley.  A 5-0 win over Burton Albion in the second round of the League Cup completed the month of August.

Liverpool FC 2015/2016 Season Review

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 …

August


After finishing second in the league at the end of the 2013/2014 season but also losing their star striker Luis Suarez, it was always going to be an interesting season for Liverpool. The Reds appeared to get off to a good start in August as they managed to collect wins over both Southampton and Spurs.

A late goal from Daniel Sturridge sealed all three points against Ronald Koeman's side whilst goals from Sterling, Gerrard and Moreno secured the win against Spurs.

A 3-2 loss to Man City was difficult to take however Liverpool have often struggled at the Etihad. Brendan Rodgers took his side into September with optimism.

2013/2014 Season Round Up

Well, what a crazy season that was! In August last year the majority of us would have snapped your hand off for 4th and guaranteed Champions League yet we found ourselves right in the mix of a Premier League race, something unfamiliar to many younger Liverpool fans. We pushed all the way to the last day but unfortunately some mistakes in our last few matches meant it was Manchester City's to lose, nevertheless it was a fantastic season for the Reds under Brendan Rodgers.

August

Liverpool started the season home to Stoke and I was in sunny Tenerife! This game will be remembered not for Daniel Sturridge's winning goal but for Simon Mignolet's superb double save to deny Stoke a penalty and a Kenwyne Jones follow up. Who'd have known the season we would have after that display of heroics?


The next game for the Reds was Aston Villa away where Daniel Sturridge scored once again to give the Reds all three points.

August ended for the Reds with a league cup tie against Notts Co…
