There really is not much to be said about this game, one word really describes the entire 90 minutes… Dominant. Liverpool Football Club went out there and stepped on the throat of Arsenal for 90 straight minutes yesterday, the first time we’ve seen a full 90 played like we know they are able to. I … More Anfield Woes continue for Arsenal as Liverpool dominate 3-1.
Let’s just say that the first half did not go to plan. Klopp experimented with the squad for this “final”, resting Firmino and Trent and playing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the wing, Mane down the middle, Salah on the opposite wing, a midfield three of Milner, Henderson and Fabinho, with a back 4 of Gomez, Matip, … More Super Cup, Liverpool v. Chelsea, Post Match Thoughts
I’m just a beloved football fan from Boston Massachusetts, a devoted Liverpool fan and a dream about American “Soccer” royalty. I played “soccer” in high school, I wasn’t bad, made a league all star but in the grand scheme of things that’s nothing. I was a big forward that made a living from being stronger … More Mixed Emotions, the American Dream v. The Beloved Reds
Simply incredible. Dominating, suffocating, incredible football. Going into the last preseason match, our very own Liverpool were in horrific form, losing 3 of the 4 matches and tying the other. This match comes 5 days before Liverpool start their season with the glorified friendly that is the Community Shield. Mo, Firmino, Alisson, Keita and Shaq … More Liverpool V.

1.) The first thing that I learned from Liverpool’s US Tour really isn’t anything groundbreaking, and it really is as simple as, Liverpool need their front 3 of Firmino, Salah, and Mane back ASAP. Although yesterday against Sporting showed glimpses of fluidity in the final third it is clear to see how deeply missed they … More 5 Things I Learned from Liverpool’s US Tour
A 2-2 draw with Sporting ends Liverpool’s US tour with a sharehold of the Western Union Cup. Overall the US tour was a bit of a slouch for the Liverpool squad losing twice and drawing once, but I’ll touch on that tomorrow. Scoreline apart I thought that Liverpool played pretty well throughout the game. Controlled … More Post Match Thoughts: Liverpool V. Sporting July 24th 2019
Well that was certainly a football game. Here in Boston MA, we associate football as a brutal, hard hitting and less fluid sport, which is exactly what we witnessed, American Football. From the get go the Sevilla players looked as though they were going for the neck of each and every Liverpool player. Looking to … More Post Game Thoughts, Liverpool V. Sevilla
Imagine a player of world class ability who can function in any of 4 roles in the Liverpool system, while knowing said system INSIDE AND OUT. Now imagine that theoretically you can get him for free or almost free, theoretically of course. Obviously that’s a no brainer, sign him up and bring him aboard! Unfortunately … More Is Bringing Back Coutinho the Answer to Overthrow City?
A fun fact about the group of writers we have here at Cityofchampions is we’re all avid soccer fans, (some more than others, get it together Trev). Anyway Trev and myself support Fenway Sports Group’s own Liverpool, new writer Jack supports Manchester United, (first blog up soon should be a good one), and other new … More Liverpool Starlett Headlines First Preseason Game
