"A Phenomenal Player"

For me, he’s world class already. 32 in 39 is world class return. He’s fast becoming my favourite LFC player now. There’s been an ongoing debate on who should play in the middle, but for me Studge is more suited to play in the middle when we play a strong opposition where we expect to absorb pressure and counter, while Luis is more suited in the centre when we expect to have more possession against a bus-parking team. That being said, both of our forwards are phenomenal in their own way and we are blessed to have not one but two phenomenal striker.

Demanding More

i quite like the idea that Trev is actually writing all these pieces with a top drawer hand carved swan quill, crafted with a technique passed down through the generations in his family. big, looping writing, on scrolls of thick parchment, which he seals by pressing an audacious family ring on hot wax. then he delivers these by albino crow to TLO towers where the rest of there staff roll their eyes and painstakingly transcribe each luxurious word in those fussy machines, to be dispersed among the awaiting masses.

Manchester United 0, Liverpool 3: Dominant Display in Comfortable Win at Old Trafford

For me, if we should win the league this season, it will be down to one key difference between us and our rivals.

Chelsea have a squad,
Manchester City have a squad,
Arsenal have a squad,
We, have a team.

The togetherness and willingness to fight for each other has defined this season for me, I think the team may actually love each other as much as I love them and it’s brilliant to see. This season really has added modern day weight and meaning to the values of LFC, the Red Shirt and to You’ll Never Walk Alone. This isn’t something thats bought, this is something that’s crafted, managed and bought together by a certain Mr. Rodgers who is really setting himself apart this season. This re-ignition of the values, the meanings and the fight is so beautiful to see.

I hope it ends in a title win, and I really hope Steven gets to lift the trophy he craves. It’s been a hell of a ride so far!
