Remember last week when your faithful scribe was like, “Good news, things look like they’re getting better!”? Well, turns out, not so much. The world is burning and everything is a nightmare, but there’s a good chance we’ll be watching a Merseyside derby in less than three weeks, so let’s all focus on that, shall we?
Anyway, here’s some social media updates.
Trent Alexander-Arnold was one of several Liverpool players who posted the picture that the players took in training in order to honor George Floyd and #blacklivesmatter.
Andy Robertson commemorated the win against Tottenham with a tweet of a picture of him in Kiev in 2018, and him in Madrid in 2019.
James Milner posted a video of himself hoisting the Champions League trophy in the air, to the delight of the Liverpool fans in the crowd. Large groups of people gathered in one place — I vaguely remember what that was like.
Gini. Just...Gini. He exists and I’m so glad for it.
Virgil van Dijk posted a sponsored video about winning a chance to meet him. Mostly I try to avoid posting sponsored content here, but this one is adorable and the world is a trash fire, so whatever. Enjoy.
Here’s Mo Salah and his daughter enjoying some quarantine time in a teepee, for some reason, and also a pool.
And finally, more reminiscing from Roberto Firmino. Come for the adorable pictures with his family, stay for the sensual trophy rubbing, courtesy of Alisson.
Stay happy and safe, everyone!
