The Long And Winding Road

Way back in the days of Brendan there was a rumour doing the rounds that Liverpool wanted to sign Xherdan Shaqiri from Bayern Munich. Four years later in the days of Jürgen it has finally happened. Only we didn’t sign him from the might of Bayern Munich but from Stoke.  A strange path for the player to take but he’s at Anfield and we wait and see what he brings to the table.

RAOTL On Sale At Bury

Mo Salah might not be at Bury on Saturday but Red All Over The Land will. We’ll be selling from around 12-30pm so if you see us – or hear us – come over and buy a copy.  We’ll be happy and we hope you will be too.

Tranmere 2 Liverpool 3

First of all, there were some good performances in the first half at Tranmere and secondly there were some slipshod showings in the second half.  In the opening 45 minutes young Rafa Camacho playing as a right back cum right winger impressed, was involved in a fair bit and scored following good work by Sheyi Ojo.  It was Ojo himself who scored a second.  When the returning Adam Lallana added a third another rout seemed more likely than not.  Keita and Fabinho showed useful touches which was obviously pleasing.  Only the second half saw a totally different team both in personal and performance.  Hard to think of anyone who stood out; we could [should] have added to the goals tally but lacked a fair bit when around the goal.  Then there was Loris Karius!  Okay, the manager doesn’t want to dwell on his basic error that threw Tranmere a lifeline and that’s Jürgen’s choice.  Jürgen doesn’t want to dwell upon it but you can bet the media will.  The second Tranmere goal followed more ineptness, this time involving James Milner and youngster Pedro Chirivella and the ‘walkover’ became a contest.

Chester 0 Liverpool 7

This was a warm up game you couldn’t call a warm up.  Too hot for that.  New faces, old faces, and a few we never thought we’d see again all out there in the heat of Chester.  Some trying to impress Jürgen. Others trying to impress any club who might want to make them an offer they can’t refuse. Harry Wilson was the pick of the first half side, scoring the two first half goals.  Danny Sturridge was top man second half, also scoring twice.  Danny Ings, James Milner and Ryan Kent [definitely trying to temp someone] made up the seven goal tally. Fabinho played in the first half, Keita in the second.  Nothing more to add really.
