  1. Liverpool FC Long Term Story

    It almost doesn't feel right to do a story about Liverpool with Klopp working his magic right now but let's do one anyway. I always play a long term save with Liverpool on FM and to make it a bit more challenging, I'm only gonna sign one first team player per season, keep the team together and promote our youth prospects. I'm going to use the youth academy to bring through players and sign regens.

    Liverpool's first pre season game didn't go very well, drawing against Tranmere but more concerning is the fact that Jordan Henderson picked up an injury which means he could miss the start of the season. England of course needed to replace their manager after big Sam was sacked and they did so with Jose Antonio Camacho.

    What a surprise Daniel Sturridge picked up an injury and to be honest i'm planning on giving every player a chance but i can see Sturridge leaving sooner rather than later. James Milner has been progressing well, training in his new position of left back, if he keeps this up he'll be in line to start the season.

    As if we didn't have enough injuries, Mignolet suffered a fractured arm in a friendly against Mainz, the team we just took Loris Karius off. I guess they were pissed off and with Karius out injured we're left with Alexander Manninger for the at least the first few weeks of the season lol.

    These fucking injuries!! One of our most important players Nathaniel Clyne has been ruled out for 5 months with a broken leg I don't know if I've just been really unfortunate or the injuries are just a bit ridiculous at the moment. Hendo also picked up another injury on his return to action and will also miss the start of the season.

    Pre season comes to an end and it was a good one but it's only pre season and i can't wait to kick off the season. The injuries we've suffered are out of control with several key players out, we have got Matip and Henderson returning to training but they won't be ready for the first game of the season. What a game it is, United at home and we also play Tottenham away.

    Joe Gomez came back in to training at almost the perfect time with Clyne out for such a long time and Gomez has looked okay in a couple of pre season games at right back, big game for him. It was a really tight game but the sending off really changed the game, Rooney lost his head and we had to take advanta
    ge. The team did exactly that and just like he did in real life against Arsenal, Sadio Mane scored on his debut along with another debut goal from Ragnar Klavan.

    Next up against Sunderland a game we really should be winning and a 3-0 scoreline to Liverpool doesn't tell you the whole story. They came at us in the first half but we weathered the storm, Firmino broke the deadlock, scored the second and Henderson added a third.

    With the game against Tottenham coming up I made nine changes for this game and we dominated but we had to rely on an own goal to get over the line, we need to be better against these teams but we're in the next round and we will face Chelsea, at Stamford Bridge in the next round, tough game.

    On to the Tottenham game and playing away I was always expecting a difficult game unfortunately we just couldn't stop them, they're a really good team and they beat us today but we'll get better, we've only played a couple of games.

    A good start for our Liverpool team with a fantastic win against United but we end on a low with that loss against Tottenham. Next time we've got some difficult matches, especially those away trips to Chelsea.

    I disabled the first transfer window to make the game more realistic so just a couple of young players going out on loan in this transfer window.

    Southampton are always my bogey team so I was a bit worried about this one but Wijnaldum continued his goal scoring form with two goals and ultimately the difference between the two sides. They did come back in the second half when Lovren give away a penalty but Tadic put it wide and we held on for the win.

    A difficult away trip to West Ham and we struggled a bit here, Coutinho has been in poor form and i dropped him for Origi and moved Firmino to the left, Origi did well and capped his performance with a goal but we need to do better.

    I rotated the team for this one as I'm going all out for the league this season, unfortunately we couldn't get the win in this one and it was always going to be hard even with our first team and they only rotated a couple of players, less than we did.

    Some disappointing results recently so we really need to get a win and get back on track. We struggled to break the deadlock in the first half but Origi came up with a fantastic finish before Dejan Lovren wrapped up the game late on. Unfortunately Mane picked up an injury, it's not a bad one but he will miss our next game against Chelsea, which is frustrating because he's been one of our best players so far this season.

    We did well in this one and were always in the game but it all went to shit in the second half, they scored and Emre Can got sent off. Somehow we managed to score out of nowhere from a Coutinho wonder goal but i was never confident after the sending off and they smashed us, making the extra man count.

    A real mix of results in our last few matches, we've beat the teams we should be beating but we need to improve against the big teams, those two results against Chelsea need to be much better. Next time we've got games that we have to win and we finish with an away trip to Man City.

    We dominated them and although we had some nervy moments we definitely deserved to win, we did that with a solid 2-0 scoreline, goals from Origi and Matip. Unfortunately Mane picked up an injury after just returning to action, hes very important to us and he'll be a big miss.

    Benteke makes his return against his former club but he wasn't fully fit for this game, he still played though but we handled him and came away with the three points, the goals coming from another wonder strike from Coutinho and another goal for in form Origi.

    Watford having been a surprise to teams this season and showed a lot in this game, the game was really close. Deeney put them ahead but a red card from Holebas just before half time helped us out as we pulled one back in the second half but we have to disappointed we didn't get the victory, it was there for the taking!

    City come in to this one topping the table in 1st, while Liverpool are sitting in 4th. They just played in Europe and I wanted to try and make the most of that but unfortunately we couldn't do it, they smashed us in the first half but it was a game of two halves, they tired in the second half and we came right back in to the game but we just couldn't quite take advantage.

    We're on course to qualify for the Europa League but i really want to qualify for the Champions League this season. We haven't made the best start but we're doing okay, we're still up there and we actually play Arsenal at the Emirates in the next game, if we win, we can move in to 4th.

    We started off well in this one with back to back wins but a draw against Watford followed by a defeat to Man City. Next we've obviously got that huge game against Arsenal, we can't lose if we want to keep fighting at the top end of the table, we follow that with our first taste of the Merseyside Derby.

    A huge game against Arsenal and we simply cannot lose this game if we want to keep up the pace for our top four place. I played a counter attacking game plan for this and we were brilliant on the break, Arsenal kept coming back in to the game though and always looked dangerous. Ultimately we come away with a crucial three points though and we go above them as a result! Goals from Origi, Matip and Mane.

    Another huge game this time against our closest Rivals Everton and it looks like the lads took a lot of confidence from that result against Arsenal. We smashed them off the pitch and i couldn't believe what I was seeing at times, 5-0 we beat them with Origi and Mane putting in incredible displays with two goals each.

    Matip has been fantastic with two very important goals in the last month and he's been named Player of the Month for November and Origi also won the Young Player of the Month with three goals in three games. The board also made transfer funds available for the upcoming January transfer window and I already have a few targets in mind but I'm only aloud one to sign one first team player so I need to make sure I get it right.

    Not much to say about this, the usual suspects, Origi and Matip score again, Firmino scored as well. We're going to have to start rotating a few players who haven't played much as we play more games in December and hopefully an FA Cup run to follow in January.

    I rotated a few players in for this game and I've got to say it backfired, we didn't look like the team playing recently and could only manage a draw against 16th place Hull who we should really be beating.

    Danny Ings comes in to lead the line for this one and he definitely took his chance with one goal and one assist, the team also looked very good as we got back to our best and come out 4-0 winners, the other goals come from Coutinho, Firmino and WIjnaldum. I know we should be be beating West Brom but they actually come in to this one in 6th place so we've done well to win this match so comfortably.

    We've been doing well lately but United are right on our tails in the league and we play them in the last game of the next update, that's going to be some game! Great run of games for the team there, that win against Arsenal was something special and although we can be disappointed we didn't beat Hull, we're looking a lot better now.

    We didn't get off to the best start when Danny Ings missed a penalty against his former club, we kept going though and Ings managed to score and get another assist, Firmino was fantastic with two, Coutinho and then Lallana got the other goals. Unfortunately Ings picked up an injury, breaking his foot and keeping him out for 3-4 months, frustrating because he's been fantastic in his last two games.

    Sakho was one of a number of players wanting more of a first team chance this season, with a limited number of opportunities for my players because of no European football, I've stuck almost exclusively to a partnering of Matip and Lovren but with Sakho coming out firing with two goals in the first ten minutes, I've got a decision to make. Another fantastic display from the team and our good run goes on!

    Stoke proved difficult to handle in this game and I thought they would be, they come in to this one in 10th place and Diouf proved to be the man for them scoring his 16th goal in 21 games, Coutinho pulled one back late on to rescue the draw. It's not great but we've had some big wins recently and at least we're still unbeaten.

    Massive game coming up here we're doing really well in the league in second place, four points off Tottenham and United aren't far behind in 5th with four points less than Liverpool. This was really close, they took the lead with a goal from Rooney but we managed to score another late goal from Mane, that's a good point for us and I feel like we deserved it.

    Firmino won Player of the month for Decemeber, with Coutinho and Matip rounding off the top three. Free scoring wins against Burnley and Leicester and two difficult draws against Stoke and United in this update, we could've done better but we're still on an unbeaten run.

    The January transfer window is open and just five hours in, we had bids for Emre Can from City and Barcelona for around £40M. I recently promised him that we would qualify for the Champions League this season and we really need to do that if we want to keep him, he's only got two and a half years on his contract as well.

    We really should have scored more goals here, Divock Origi missed some absolute sitters and he's not been on the best run of form lately. Coutinho hit the post twice and the team hit the post two more times, ultimately though it was Wijnaldum coming off the bench that made the difference, with a wonderful goal.

    Despite what looks like a routine result, we were really poor in this game and gave them chance after chance while not creating much, the changes really made a difference to the game and the own goal really helped us out before Firmino wrapped up the game late on.

    The fans were not happy about this one and they've got a right to be, this lad has only applied his trade in the Championship for Leeds but hopefully with a bit of tutoring he can be a good rotation option for us. They are definitely better players at left back but until we get back in to the Champions League, we can't really attract those top players and although I don't think Taylor well ever be top quality he's adds some depth to a position we need to strengthen. It's also worth a mention that several premier league clubs where in for him and if we didn't sign him now he would cost a lot more, later down the line.

    We will face Cardiff in the Fourth round of the FA Cup, another good draw for us against Championship opposition. We weren't great in the EFL Cup and with the limitied number of games left this season, I wanted to try my absolute best to win this trophy.

    There's been a lot of interest in our players and when Bayern agreed to pay £50M for Mamadou Sakho, I just couldn't say no. He's third choice behind Matip and Lovren and to get that much for Sakho is very impressive, especially when you consider Lovren has only been attracting offers of £26M.

    It's a risk to sell Sakho because Lovren is currently unsettled at the club but it's a move to China he wants not a bigger career move to Barca or Bayern. We're about to lose Sadio Mane and Joel Matip for a couple of weeks, as he goes off to the African Cup of Nations so it could go wrong but it was too good to turn down really and we've get Joe Gomez, Ragnar Klavan and even Lucas who can fill in. Fortunately for us Matip hasn't been playing for Cameroon and we only lost Mane.

    Tottenham sit top of the table four points ahead of us in second and if we've got any aspirations of winning the title this season, we simply have to win this game. Firmino was absolutely majestic in this game, he seemed to react really well to being given the opportunity to lead the line ahead of Origi, with two goals and a hand in the third, he was the difference.

    Southampton come in to this one in a disappointing position of 18th place and they really had a point to prove, we definitely missed Mane in the first half but we looked much better when we changed the system and brought Origi on in the second half. Ultimately it's two points dropped though and we've lost ground on Spurs after that brilliant win.

    We're going well in the league and it looks like we're on course to finish in the Champions League, it's going to be really hard to win the league this year but we're on a very lengthy unbeaten run at the moment, if we can keep it up, we've got a chance.

    Another good run of games for the boys and most importantly still unbeaten, we're winning in all of our home games but struggling in the away games, I'll definitely be looking to improve that. Next update sees us host Cardiff at home, in the fourth round of the FA Cup and we also have a really big game at Anfield, when Chelsea come to town.

    Good news ahead of this one with Lovren dropping the issue of wanting to leave and promising to stay at the club. It was the Divock Origi show, a hat trick for him clearly bouyed by his two goals coming off the bench at Southampton, he was magnificent today and won us the game. Unfortunately Firmino picked up an injury keeping him out for three weeks.

    I played a few young players in this game, Gomez looked good at centre back, Grujic unfortunately had to go off after 20 minutes but it was Sheyi Ojo who really took his chance in this game, with a goal and an assist. He's struggled when starting games this season and looked better off the bench but he played really well today, as did the team, not allowing Cardiff a single shot on goal.

    We will face Norwich City in the next round the draw has definitely been kind to us here with another Championship team, now we have to make sure we beat them. The transfer window come to a close and Liverpools Sakho moving to Bayern for £50M was the biggest deal of the window.

    In the Premier League, City were the big spenders bringing in Gabriel Jesus, Casemiro and Kongolo and as you can see from the screenshot above, they actually made late bids at the end of the transfer window for Sheyi Ojo, the latest potentially rising to £15M, Liverpool declined all offers. Chelsea signed William Carvalho, while Arsenal signed Mauro Icardi and Jesse Lingard moved to West Ham for big money.

    On the Liverpool front, obviously that deal that saw Sakho move on to Bayern was the biggest deal of the window but other than that there wasn't much going on, Moreno went on loan to Benfica to get more football, we loaned a couple of youngsters out and we got rid of Tiago Ilori who was never going to get in the team. We also have buy back clauses of £1M for Brooks Lennon and £2.5M for Jordan Williams.

    Divock Origi takes both the Player of the Month and Young Player of the Month award for January, in the Premier League. He's been fantastic this season and Firmino also come Second in the Goal of the Month competition, my players never seem to win or even come in the top three for these awards so it's good to see one of them in there.

    2nd vs 3rd here, Liverpool coming in to this one ahead of Chelsea in the table and a huge game for the rest of the season. I honestly never saw this result coming, we were absolutely incredible in this game and lethal in front of goal, we beat Chelsea 7-1!!! I couldn't believe it, Origi with a hat trick and three goals from my centre backs, two from Matip, what a result!

    With Tottenham slipping up away to West Ham in the league, with a 2-2 draw, we now have a perfect opportunity to close the gap and go within just one point of them, we've got Middlesborough away. We had to wait to play our game but we delivered when it come to it, Henderson caped his return from suspension with a goal and Ojo got on the score sheet as well, overall a good team performance.

    So after that win we're just one point away from Tottenham, we need to keep winning though, ready to pounce if they slip up again. This run of games has been perfect from the team a 100% record, four wins and bags of goals, we're playing really well at the moment. Next time we have some tough games, away trips to Bournemouth and Man City and a home game against Watford.

    Another good display from the team, we have to be beating Norwich and we did exactly that, Matip and Origi with the goals and Firmino come off the bench in the second half after returning from injury. We face Tottenham in the next round, away from home but we're in to the quarter finals now.

    Bournemouth were sitting in 9th coming in to this one and playing at their place, it was always going to be tough but we managed to get over the line. They caused us some problems but our brilliant run goes on as we come out on top with goals from Matip and Origi.

    More and more awards for Liverpool players, Matip won Player of the Month for the second time this season, while Origi come in third behind Fernandinho. Origi did manage to pick up Young Player of the Month though and Sheyi Ojo came in behind at second.

    Emre Can picked up his 15th yellow card of the season so he'll miss the next three games! This next game is a big one and it's going to be difficult away from home, although Tottenham are just coming off the back of a game in the Europa League. What a game of football, we totaled 42 shots to their 27! 3-1 up at half time we really should of seen the game out, Marko Grujic scored his first goal and it wasn't bad at all he added another before half time.

    This game literally had everything dubious refereeing decisions, dramatic goals and wonder strikes as well, Sturridge also scored a magnificent goal, what looked like the winner in extra time but Sansone pulled one back late on. It went to penalties and after Tottenham missed their first three penalties and we put away our first two, it was looking good but incredibly we missed our last three penalties.

    Some confusion over the fifth penalty taker, I was sure I told the team that Mane was fifth and Henderson was the sixth penalty taker, if needed but Henderson stepped up to miss the fifth penalty. Mane and then Lovren stepped up and slotted home as unfortunate Ben Davies missed the deciding penalty. I have to say I was confident when it went to penalties they had a lot of young players out there as they rotated the team and we had the expeirence, We're into the Semis!

    Another almost perfect run of games, we probably should of wrapped up that game against Tottenham much earlier but I guess it's not like our players have played tons of games this season. We're playing really well now and we're on an incredible run but these next round of games will make or break our season, home games against City and Arsenal. also an away game against Everton.

    There was some really tired players in the team from going all the way to penalties against Tottenham so I was expecting a tough game. I couldn't believe how well the team played, just like the Chelsea game I told the team to take revenge for the previous results in the season and they definitely did that! What a performance.

    A different kind of challenge with Palace second bottom of the table, we had to make sure we didn't get complacent and for the most part we did that. Solid 2-0 victory with goals from Coutinho and Ojo.

    We knew before the game that Tottenham had dropped points losing 1-0 away to Man City, unfortunately though we couldn't take advantage, Firmino lead the line and put us ahead and then back in to the lead after they scored, but there was confusion around Lovren and Mignolet giving Lukaku an easy goal. Firminos first goal was an absolute wonder goal!!

    Henderson was suspended for this game but Origi really stepped up here, with two goals and an assist and Mane wasn't bad either, scoring and assisting. Massively important to get a win here with Tottenham winning their game in hand against Crystal Palace, they also beat Everton on the day we beat Arsenal.

    It's all to play for in the league, we top the table for the first time going in to our next game but only on goal difference, Tottenham are right there with us and it looks like it could go right down to the wire, with just six games remaining. Another brilliant run of games from the team, we covered the ground on Tottenham and now we just need to keep going, next time its business time in the league and we need to keep up the pace with Tottenham, we also play West Ham in the FA Cup Semi Final.

We're about to lose Sadio Mane, Joel Matip for a couple of weeks, as he goes off to the African Cup of Nations so it could go wrong but it was too good to turn down really and we've get Joe Gomez, Ragnar Klavan and even Lucas who can fill in. Fortunately for us Matip hasn't been playing for Cameroon and we only lost Mane.

    Loving reading this, seems your doing great and have some impressive results against the big teams!
    I'm starting a Liverpool save myself, I'm trying to work out who's the best partnership to be the back 2 out of Sakho, Matip and Lovern... what worked best for you?

    Thank you! Definetely Matip and Lovren for me you'll see as the season comes to an end, when I show the player stats they played almost every game for me this season. If you use Sakho definitely switch him out for Lovren on the left side, I like Sakho and he's better than Klavan but for £50M, a player who isn't gonna play many games, I couldn't say no. Good luck with your story.

    Apart from Karius playing in goal for Mignolet, this has been my starting line up for most league games this season. I think it's because he's the only real defensive player in the midfield, the only one with defend duty and the front five are given a lot of freedom to get forward but yes he has picked up a ton of yellow cards. I'm sure it will show when I show the player stats, oh and Wijnaldum often played for Henderson which makes this formation even more attacking.

    A broken foot for Kevin Stewart, he's not been one of our most influential players but you never want to see anyone get injured. With Tottenham losing 4-0 to North London rivals Arsenal we had a fantastic opportunity to put some breathing room between us and them but unfortunately we couldn't do that. The players really felt the pressure and nobody turned up, very disappointing, if we're gonna win the league we need to be much better!!

    Mane picked up an injury against Swansea and he'll be a big miss for this game and the big game against West Ham coming up. What a time to hit a bad run, I rested a few players with that big game against West Ham coming up in the FA Cup but the team i put out was more than good enough to beat Hull and they couldn't do it! Tottenham don't play until the weekend but we could of just handed them the title, we might of just lose it!!

    Divock Origi has struggled to find the back of the net in our last two games but he started the game and he saved his best form for this big game at Wembley. West Ham took the lead through Zaza but they simply couldn't handle Origi and he was the difference, netting a hat trick! We play Sunderland in the Final and we've got to win this one!

    What a game against Burnley, our defending was shocking in the first half but what a reaction from the team in the second half. 4-2 down they managed to make a recovery and come back to win the game 5-4. Origi was on form with another hat trick, his second in as many games and the late goals come from Henderson and Lovren.

    Tottenham started off with that very poor defeat to rivals Arsenal but they went on to win their next two games while we only managed a draw and a win, just about. That means unfortunately they're two points ahead going in to the last three games of the season, we need them to slip up but most importantly we need to win our games.

    A difficult run of games in this update, our lengthy unbeaten run come to an end with a loss to Swansea and we also dropped points against Hull and barely got over the line against Burnley. We did manage to beat West Ham and advance to the final of the FA Cup to play Sunderland, find out if we can catch Tottenham, win the title and the FA Cup in the next update.

    It was always going to be a challenge against the champions Leicester and it was really close in the first half but we looked like the team more likely to score and eventually we did exactly that. We wrapped up the game in the second half when Wijnaldum scored from the spot. Unfortunately Divock Origi had to come off injured and he'll miss the last two league games but hopefully he should be back in to time for the FA Cup Final. Tottenham played later and they managed to get a win against West Brom, going two points clear at the top of the table.

    We struggled to break them down in this game and we looked a bit lost without our main man Divock Origi, eventually we did get the breakthrough though and they pulled one back right at the end but we managed to hold on to the lead. Tottenham also won in thier game, 5-1 against Burnley and we head in to the last game of the season, still needing them to slip up for us to win the title.

    A good win from the team with goals from Coutinho, returning to the side, Firmino and Wijnaldum. Unfortunately though Tottenham did win in their game at home to Leicester, 2-0 in the end so we don't win the title, it's so frustrating and i'm disappointed but second is a good finish and we'll try to be better next season!

    It's disappointing not to win the league especially after that fantastic unbeaten run but luckily for us we have an opportunity to put that behind us and lift another trophy right away, we play Sunderland in the FA Cup Final. What an incredible performance from the lads, we come out of the blocks and absolutely smashed them, it was 6-0 after 25 minutes!!

    A hat trick from Coutinho, two from Mane and a goal for Origi on his return to the side. They did score a late goal but that doesn't really matter, we've won our first trophy of the story and hopefully it will be the first of many!

    Tottenham of course won the league but we've done well to finish second and we can build on that for next year, try and win it again. United and Arsenal complete the top four with Middlesborough, Crystal Palace and Burnley all getting relegated.

    No less than five players in the Premeir League Team of the Year, three of the back four, Milner, Lovren and Matip all getting in and we possibly could of had Clyne in their as well if he'd played all season. Firmino and Mane also enjoyed great seasons and I was a little surprised to see Origi lose out to Firmino up front.

    Great performances from the team this season, the form of players has been quality this year and the only player I'd say I was disappointed with is Lallana, when I gave him a chance in the first team, he didn't show up and you can expect to see him on the way out. The three forward stars at Liverpool Firmino, Coutinho and Mane, all enjoyed great seasons every one of them getting double figures in assists and goals.

    The Fans Player of the Season was Dejan Lovren with Matip coming in second and Mane third. my two centre backs were fantastic this season, scoring some vital goals and Matip manged to score eight goals from that position! Personally I would go for Divock Origi as Player of the Season, this was the season he made his breakthrough with 31 goals in 33 starts and he's only going to get better! Firminos goal against Everton won Goal of the season and what a goal it was.

    No less than five players signing new deals at the club, Trent Alexander Arnold and Cameron Brannagan both young players signed long term deals keeping them at the club for the foreseeable future. Origi, Can and Lovren all enjoyed top notch seasons and with just one year left on Lovrens deal and two years left on both Origi and Cans deals, we needed to get them to sign and they're all tied down for their best years.

    Plenty of money to spend in the transfer window but the targets I have in mind aren't big money signings, I think it's going to be harder to keep hold of our players after a season like that. Next time find out who we've signed and who's getting sold and we'll also have pre season as we approach our second year.

    Remember I'm only signing one first team player per season so I've got to get these transfers right! Last season I had to wait until January but I'm not waiting around, I've gone for a player Liverpool have been linked heavily with in the real world and I have confidence he can be a great player at left back for us. Ben Chilwell comes in for £12.5M.

    Although we've spent a reasonable fee, I doubt he'll play too much this season ahead of James Milner and Charlie Taylor, barring any major injurys but Milner isn't getting any younger at 31 but hopefully with some tutoring from the more expeirenced players, Chilwell can fill that role.

    There's loads of young players at Liverpool especially striking and midfield roles so I didn't want to sign too many regens for now but Lovren turns 28 in the next month and at 31 Klavan isn't getting any younger, so I've brought in just the one regen. Sean Jones and hopefully he can realise his potential on that left sided centre back slot, he'll need some guidance but we signed him on compensation for just £400k.

    Lastly I've gone for a bit of expeirence in Alvaro Arbeloa, ex Liverpool player of course he's been around and won lots of trophies. Clyne And Alexander Arnold will compete for that right back spot with Clyne first choice and I'd probably play Gomez at right back before Arbeloa but he adds more expeirence to a young side, which is kind of why I signed him. He'll be coaching the Under 18s as well but I doubt he will play.

    Just ignore those free transfers for now apart from Arbeloa, they're all regens I just forgot to sign all the regens when we got our new batch of youngsters back in March, hopefully one or two can push themselves in to the first team!

    I cleared out loads of deadwood this summer, plenty of money coming in, £25M for Lallana heading to West Ham, Markovic went to Monaco for £17.5M, Danny Ings moved to Hull for £15M and with Karius wanting more first team football, Mignolet moved to newly promoted to the PL, Sheffield Wednesday for £10.25M. I was going to play Karius anyway but with no European football last season I thought we'd be better off with Mignolets expeirence, while letting Karius bed in to the club.

    It's worth noting as well that Lloyd Jones and Kevin Stewart both have buy back clauses invovled in their moves. Jones signing for £200k with a buy back of £1M, while Stewart signing for Middlesborough for £1.5M with a buy back clause of £5M. Alberto Moreno also left the club for £21M going to Stoke City, I didn't want to see him go but he was just too error prone.

    So pre season comes to an end and another good one, we had two big games against quality opposition in our last two games. First off against PSG, we were 2-0 up and cruising but we threw away the lead and let them come back, with the game finishing 2-2. Against Barcelona we were down 3-2 at Half time but we managed to fight back in the second half, with two goals from Coutinho. Next time we kick off our second season with a Community Shield game against Tottenham and we've got a tough home game against United.

  25. Unlucky losing the league on that final day mate, always a tough one to take! Second is a great platform to build on though and the FA Cup win is a good bonus. I really like your philosophy of only bringing in one big transfer each season as it'll make the job just that little bit harder. Some really good profit on some players there too, good work. I see you do your new contracts a bit like myself by giving them 5-year deals and 3-year extensions! It's a great way to keep ahold of players I feel. If it's younger players as well, if you give them a decent wage increase based on first team or international appearances it ends up working really well. If they come at you for a bigger wage I feel the 'you have plenty of time left on your deal' option works fantastically. I did notice your high loyalty bonuses, I assume agent fees too. For the most part, in last years game and a little bit in this years game I managed to get those down to little or nothing. I simply put it at zero and gave them a better wage, bonus or incentive and it works.

Origi didn't have the best start but he was getting in to good positions, It was left for Firmino to come on and change the game and he did that by himself, skinning the Spurs centre backs, he come on to score not just the winner but two goals. Wijnaldum has to get a mention as well with three assists!

    Leicester played really well and we struggled to create chances against them, we didn't give them much either though and Firmino was the difference, he started the game for Origi up front, scoring a goal for the team.

    Lucas Leiva starts on his coaching course, funded by the board he could become a defending or tactical coach in the future, I really haven't played him much in the first team and at 30 years old he might want to play for a couple of years before he retires. In fact I know he wants to play, I promised him I would loan him out but I've not really got any intention of doing that, I'd much rather keep him at the club for his expeirence.

    We also managed to convince the new chairman to finally let us improve on the coaching team, with more numbers in. In terms of ex players we signed both Tomas Rosicky and Andrea Barzagli, they join the coaching team and Barzagli is actually already a 4.5 star tactical coach, hopefully he can become a 5 star one day. Rosicky is a 4 star shooting coach and like Barzagli hopefully he improves on that in the future as well. The board also promised to fund their coaching courses.

    The Brazilian duo of Firmino and Coutinho both committed their future to the club this week with new contracts for both of them after a lot of speculation over their future at the club, this summer. There have been recent bids from PSG of £45M for Firmino and £55M for Coutinho but i was really disappointed with both bids and rejected them, included in the deals were add ons and monthly installments.

    They both came to me and told me that the money they could earn signing for PSG, would be a big pay rise for them and with the season just kicking off, the last thing i want is any unsettled players so I give them both pay rises. They both had three years left on their contract, they've topped that up to five years and it looks like that's ended any speculation about their future, at least for now.

    Emre Can picked up a suspension at the end of last season, missing the last two league games, he also missed the last game and he'll miss our next game against West Ham but he's back just in time for the big United game coming up. This game was close but we probably just about deserved to win, Harry Wilson came off the bench to make his debut and assisted two goals one from a corner, giving Cameron Brannagan his first goal for the club and a second from a free kick, Dejan Lovren with a fantastic header!

    So Emre Can comes back in for Marko Grujic, Henderson moves further forward in a midfield three. This game was really close and we certianly pushed our luck, they could have scored at 1-1 to win the game but it was Liverpool who scored the winner. Grujic coming off the bench for Henderson to smash in a header late in the game and it was Harry Wilson with another assist from the corner!

    We drew Huddersfield in the third round of the EFL Cup and we should win that one. The Champions League group stage draw was also made and we were drawn into a group as third seed alongside FC Porto, Sevilla and Anderlecht, some tough teams to play here but we didn't get drawn against any European giants and we can fancy our chances of topping the group, returning to Europe.

    We struggled to break them down but they didn't have a sniff at goal, we defended really well and they never looked like scoriing. Eventually Mane broke the deadlock with a bit of magic and that was the difference, we left it late but we got there in the end, just about.

    On the Liverpool side of things there was nothing further to report in terms of transfers, Barcelona did make a late bid for Sadio Mane, of £45M in instalments but it was swiftly rejected. Elsewhere in the league there was tons of money spent and I was a bit jealous of some of these transfers, Veratti moved to United for £79M, while Dybala move to City for £58M but potentially rising to £82M. Felipe Anderson moved to Spurs for big money, i'm a big fan and his Lazio team mate Stefan De Vrij also moved on for a hefty price, to Chelsea.

    We conceded a goal in almost every game but I couldn't of asked for a better start than that, kicking off the season lifting the Community Shield beating Spurs and we also got some big wins against United and West Ham. Next time, we're back in Europe! I can't wait to play our first game against Anderlecht, we also play Arsenal at the Emirates and also Southampton away from home.

    I've only used these two formations so far in this story, barring a few changes of course, tinkering especially in the big games. Last season, with no european football i had a week to plan for a lot of league games and with a fully fit team, I often played 4231 purely just to get four attackers players on the pitch. With Mane Firmino and Coutinho, behind Origi in a lot of games, it's no wonder the amount of goals we scored, however at the start of the season, you'll see in the update I just posted. I've had some tough games to start and I've been using 433 a lot more, it's definitely more solid at the back and there's more games this season.

    I agree with everything you say! I seem to struggle a bit dealing with agents of players say under 23, who you want to sign on a five year deal with the optional 3 year contract extension. I end up just getting pissed off with agents haggling for more, I end up just giving them a bigger agent fee or loyalty bonus.

    Mane was unhappy about my high asking price for him, following the rejected bid from Barcelona but he was very soon happy to stay, which is great news for us. Lucas has been kicking up a fuss after he wasn't allowed to leave in the transfer window just gone, he's decided to leave as a free transfer, with his contract up at the end of the season. Like i said before he still wants to play for a few years but hopefully he can come back as a coach in the next few seasons.

    After the International break and playing on a Friday night we had some tired players in but unfortunately Arsenal just edged the game with a goal from Icardi, it was a really tight game but we didn't create any chances, despite their goal we didn't concede any chances either and defended well.

    That loss to Arsenal seemed to damage morale and we didn't make the greatest starts, our players were all under performing but it was Divock Origi coming off the bench to make the difference, scoring his first goal of the season.

    What a performance from Coutinho, he was brilliant on the day with two very decisive goals, Southampton are struggling, currently in the relegation zone and after playing midweek in Europe, i knew this would be a tough game, I'm just so glad we came through it with three points.

    I'm hopeful of a good season this year so that means a lot of games and the EFL Cup isn't a big priority, it's time to start rotating the team, no less than six changes, including a chance for Charlie Taylor and Alexander Arnold making his debut, along with the rest of the back four. We certainly made it hard for ourselves, the changes in defense seemed to show as we looked a bit nervy but another goal for Divock Origi and a first Liverpool goal for Harry Wilson got us over the line. Huddersfield we're unlucky, they hit the post from a long range effort at 2-1 but we managed to hold out for a deserved victory.

    Not the greatest start to the update with a loss to Arsenal and we've not looked entirely convincing since, we're getting some real gritty scrappy wins by the odd goal, the team could be playing better but the wins are coming which is the most important thing. Next time the fixtures continue to come thick and fast, there's some massive games coming up in our Champions League group.

    A good solid performance and after some scrappy matches, it was nice to get a comfortable victory under our belt and it also gave us a chance to take a few players off for the big game coming up against Porto. Coutinho scored a brilliant goal today they amount of time he gets the ball on the left, just outside the box and bends it in to the right hand corner is incredible!

    Porto won their first game in this group against Sevilla and playing at home it was important that we got the three points, putting us in a commanding position as we play the second match. They're a good team but we deserved to beat them, plenty of drama in this game, Grujic scored the second goal to secure the win and then went on to get sent off. Incredibly we finished the game with nine men, after Harry Wilson got injured and also went off after, we'd already made all three substitutions.

    Unfortunately for Harry Wilson he picked up an injury and he'll miss the next 6-7 weeks, the good news is Sheyi Ojo has been back in training for the past two weeks and another game or two and his match sharpness should be back up to scratch. Nathaniel Clyne's injury is less serious and just a concussion but he'll miss our next game against Bournemouth but hopefully be back after the International break.

    With just a two day turnaround from the game against FC Porto, we have to rest some players with a lot of our best players, playing in that game. Clyne of course is injured so Alexander Arnold plays along with Joe Gomez for Dejan Lovren and Henderson also comes back in, after a poor start to the season. The young defender didn't seem fazed by the pressure with Gomez putting us ahead, a mistake from Karius put them back on level terms but two goals from Roberto Firmino helped us secure the victory.

    Another good run of games for the lads, we've started this season really well and we just need to keep it going. We started to score more goals at the start of this update but they've dried up a bit lately. Next time we've got a big game away to Chelsea in the league, we also play Sevilla again in the Champions League, this time at home and we've got United in the EFL Cup.

    We should have won this game, we had the chances to win the game but it's another draw but again, i'm not too disappointed playing away from home again and Chelsea are a good team, we just need to start turning these draws into wins.

    This game was soo close, not much to talk about in ninety minutes but the game came to life in extra time. Liverpool scored in the first minute with a goal from Sheyi Ojo and Firmino went on to make it 2-0 shortly after but then Fellaini pulled one back. We conceded a chance but they missed the header from the corner to level the game, Herrera was frustrated late on, getting sent off and we managed to hold out for the win.

    Playing 120 minutes including extra time, we've got a league game against Stoke coming up with just two days rest and there's some tired players now in the squad, we could run in to some trouble. Firmino will also miss the game after suffering an injury against United, we did manage to get through and we'll play Watford away in the next round.

    Divock Origi put us ahead coming from a Coutinho cross on the left hand side. Unfortunately for him Joe Gomez gave away possession in a dangerous position and Stoke made us pay with a goal from Munir. That's how it ended, Origi had a chance to put us back into the lead but his header hit the bar, I thought we might struggle and that proved to be the case.

    What a performance from the team today, when we start fast like this we seem almost unstoppable sometimes. It was all about Origi today four goals for him taking his tally of just three goals this season to seven, Mane wasn't bad either! Two assists and a goal for him, that win takes us top of the group and also means we've qualified for the next round!

    A first look at the league table this season and we're doing well, our only defeat so far this season has been away to Arsenal and it looks like so far at least, that's cost us. We're second in the league behind Arsenal but just two points behind and the teams behind us aren't far away either. Our biggest rivals Everton and Man United complete the top four with Newcastle surprising the league so far this season, after returning from the Championship.

    Despite the two draws we've done well in these games, it was understandable that we dropped points in those games but if you think about it we could be ahead of Arsenal if we didn't draw them matches. We did get two wins at home though and there were massive wins for us. Next time we've got more league games, a tough away trip to Man City and Tottenham at home.

    This would only happen to Dejan Lovren, most Liverpool fans will of heard about some of his injuries this season. He was almost back for the game against City but he wasn't quite fit enough.

    This game was really close and with Lovren injured they were getting at Joe Gomez early in the game, Matip was looking tired but Karius kept us in the game with some big saves. After Casemiro got sent off we made the extra man count though and in the end we run out 5-0 winners! Two goals from Origi and two for Coutinho, Gomez completed the scoring with a goal after a poor start to the game, he redeemed himself.

    We were struggling to break them down in the first half as Matip hit the bar from a header but we made the breakthrough just before half time, Sadio Mane smashing home. The second half was much easier, as we wrapped up the game with goals from Origi and Wijnaldum.

    We've already qualified from the group so I wasn't too concerned about this game, hence the seven changes, only the goalkeeper Karius and the front three of Mane, Coutinho and Origi kept their place. I could of given a start to Firmino after he'd returned from injury recently but I'm so glad I didn't because Divock Origi was sensational, four goals on the day for him and he even set up Coutinho, Ojo came off the bench to score our sixth goal. What a performance from the team! That's twelve goals in his last five games for Origi!! What a run of form!

    With the current form of the team and the way we've just been battering every team in front of us, I had a good feeling about this game and we delivered the goods. Another goal for Divock Origi, Coutinho was yet again on form with another goal and Emre Can got a rare goal, great performance again from the lads!

    What a run of games from the team this time! 17 goals scored in just four games, that's an average of over four goals per game, incredible. Remarkably we've caused the opposition side to get a man sent off in six of our last seven games! That can't be a coincidence, we've really been frustrating teams with our tactics and our play, it's fair to say a few players have lost their head after we've showed them just how good this team is. Next time we've got our last game of the group in the Champions League and we also play arch rivals Everton in the league.

    Another update and another injury to kick things off, this time it's Jordan Henderson and he'll miss the next three weeks with a groin strain. Usually this would be a big miss but he's not been great this season and we should be okay.

    Just like the game against Anderlecht I rotated a lot of players here and it really cost us, we didn't show up and we didn't create many chances either. Watford took their chances and they run out 2-0 winners in the end. Although we've lost our unbeaten run and got knocked out of the EFL Cup, I'm not too bothered, hopefully at the end of the season we'll be worrying about other trophies and not this one.

    It was important to get back to winning ways after that loss to Watford and it didn't always look like we were going to but we manged to do it in the end. Sunderland have been a surprise in the league this season and they showed why, the first half was close but two substitutes made the difference coming on with goals, Ojo and Firmino the scorers as we come out 2-1 winners.

    Not bothered with this game, we've already qualified and we'll definitely finish top of the group even if Porto beat us because they're four points behind. So I rotated the team and I was half expecting to lose this game because Porto still needed a win to secure qualification. Firmino started the game up front for Origi after he came on to score in the last game and he showed up with two goals and a third from Coutinho.

    As the group stages come to a close, we've come out on top with five wins and a draw from six games, I'm very happy with that. Porto just needed a win to qualify but they flopped in the last game and couldn't do it, Sevilla took advantage to go on to qualify, as they beat Anderlecht and Porto drop out and in to the Europa League.

    I changed to a 4231 for the first time this season in this game and we smashed them in terms of chances created, we could of even scored more. They always looked dangerous with the quality they have and they're having a very good season, we nearly threw the game away but they failed to convert the penalty that would have put them on level terms from 2-0 down, Loris Karius with a fantastic save. I actually changed back to a 433 in the second half, Goals from Origi, Firmino and Wijnaldum sealed a hard fought 3-2 win.

Origi and Matip got the other goals as we got a good solid win, Daniel Ayala did get a goal against his former club and while we're on the topic of ex players, Jordan Rossiter also signed for Villa after they got promoted back to the PL.

    So we're top of the league going in to the busy Christmas period but Arsenal can go level on points if they win all of their games in hand, they're off competing in the Club World Championship after Arsenal surprisingly won the Champions League last year. Just like Liverpool, they're on to a good season in the league and United aren't too far behind. either.

    Despite dropping out of the EFL Cup against Watford, I feel it's been a productive run of games for the team, we've won the league games which at this stage of the season, is very important. In the next update we'll have a clearer idea whether we can go on to win the title this season with four league games, we're doing well so far we just need to keep it going.

    Swansea are in the relegation zone and it's easy to see why after a performance like that. To be fair to them they did stay in the game, in the first half. Coutinho gave them a penalty, which Sigurosson converted to put them ahead but we had too much quality on the day and that really showed in the second half.

    Firmino got to start up front ahead of Origi and he won us the game with two early goals, they got one back in the second half but we pushed on to put the game beyond doubt when Sadio Mane applied his third assist of the game to set up Sheyi Ojo to score. Firmino had a big game but he had to go off injured in the second half and he'll miss the next 5-6 weeks.

    We found it tough to unlock the door and find the pass but Origi put us ahead, Matip added a second to secure the win. They did score a penalty after Clyne conceded yet another penalty, Karius couldn't keep this one out but we held out for the win, very important because we're top of the league right now and the pressure is on!

    We've got United coming up, at Old Trafford in the league and after this game against Leicester we've got just one day of rest before that game so I had to rest a lot of players here. That meant the game would be a close one and in the first half it was but Klavan put us ahead, heading in from a corner and Coutinho came off the bench to make sure of the win.

    Arsenal won the Club World Championship and I wanted to make sure we put as much distance between us and them before they came back. We've definitely managed to do that! They were actually level on points with us before they went away but a defeat to West Ham and a recent draw away to Man United means even if they win their games in hand we'll still be five points clear at the top of the table!

    Four wins out of four for the team and if we can keep our concentration and go on to lift the title, we might look back on this period as a defining one, hopefully we can finally bring home the PL Title! Next time we've got that huge game against United, we'll kick off our FA Cup campaign as defending champions and there's also a tough game away to Newcastle.

    Sadio Mane claims the crown of BBC African Football of the Year and African Football of the Year, he's been in amazing form this past year and he managed to beat Aubameyang to the award, who came in second. Mane was also name in the African Team of the Year along with Liverpool teammate Joel Matip.

    A legend of the game, the Brazilian Kaka decided to hang up his boots and retire from football at the age of 35. He decided to immediately go in to coaching and he joins the coaching team here at Liverpool. It's great to have a big name like this at the club and we actually had this deal sealed back in the summer. He's a four star ball control coach and he's got plenty of time to improve on that.

    United just played Arsenal while we played Leicester and both teams had just one day of rest, I chose to rest a lot of players against Leicester and United played their best team. I was hoping our players would be fresher but that didn't prove to be the case, our attacking players just didn't show up and the one player who did was Marcus Rashford. WIth Martial and Rooney injured, he played up front and even though Wijnaldum equalised, he was just too much for us.

    It's important to get back to winning ways after a defeat and we did exactly that, Mane and Origi looked back to their best with three goals for Origi and two assists and a goal for Mane. Ben Woodburn come off the bench for Origi to score his first goal for the club just as he did recently against Leeds, in real life. That completed a convincing scoreline against a team we should be smashing and an almost perfect game.

    Playing away to Newcastle, I knew it would be tough because they've been playing really well this season. We had a nightmare start, conceding two early goals but we kept on fighting and managed to bring the game back and win 4-2! More goals for Mane and Origi, Coutinho even got a goal returning to the side.

    Clyne did concede a penalty in the last game but Karius made a fantastic save to ensure Newcastle didn't get back in to the game. I believe that's actually four penalties he's conceded this season and Karius has saved two of them! I had a word with Clyne and he didn't take well to being criticised, I did bring in Alexander Arnold who played defensive midfield in the last game with Can suspended and you can expect to see Arnold starting at right back in the next few games.

    What a show from Divock Origi, five goals for him! One for Mane and despite conceding two more goals, we dominated Southampton and Origi could even of had more! Great performance, we're conceding a few goals but banging them in at the other end so it's all good for now.

    Despite the disappointment of losing to rivals Man United, apart from that it's been a good run of games for the team. Scoring tons of goals and dominating in the other three matches! Next time, we continue the FA Cup campaign against Championship side Charlton and there's a huge game in the league against title rivals Arsenal!

    We weren't great but we got the job done, guess who Divock Origi popped up with yet another goal and there wasn't much else to talk about. We can be disapointed we didn't create more chances but we didn't give them any chances. Another good draw for us as well, another Championship side in Reading, away again.

    What a game this was, we definetely deserved to win, we had the chances to do it and when Coutinho put us in to an early lead, it was looking good but Arsenal came straight back with a goal from Icardi. Sturridge even come off the bench late on and had the chance to win the game, breaking from a the half way line, Henderson with the pass but Sturridge blazed it wide. With Arsenal still our closest challengers in the league, it was very important that we didn't lose this game, we didn't win but i can't really fault the team.

    Not many deals going on in the January transfer window, a couple of big money moves with Denis Suarez moving to Man City, Castillejo moved to Everton in a deal potentially rising to £33.5M and Tielemans moved to Leicester for £17.25M. On the Liverpool end, nothing much to report, Lucas Leiva had already agreed to sign for Fenerbahce at the end of the season and I managed to get £900K to move him on now. Danny Ward went out on loan to West Brom along with a couple of youngsters.

    Another good performance today, of course it was going to be Divock Origi, it seems like he's the only player i'm talking about at the minute but Coutinho missed this game after picking up a knock against Arsenal and Sheyi Ojo came in. He didn't look bothered by the pressure at all, he got a goal and Origi got two. West Brom got one back in the second half but it wasn't enough.

    It really wasn't a good performance from the team, we struggled to find the the back of the net and when Bournemouth got a man sent off, we had to go for it! Finally we did manage to score that all important goal and the only goal of the game. Sadio Mane got it and Sheyi Ojo came off the bench to provide the assist, he replaced Coutinho, who just returned from injury.

    I don't want to jinx it but if we can keep going it looks like we're finally going to win the league this season! Arsenal dropped points, taking a loss to relegation threatened Hull City, while we narrowly got over the line against Bournemouth, who are in a similar position. That means even if Arsenal win their game in hand, they'll still be seven points behind us.

Arsenal haven't gained any ground on us, we just need to keep winning games. Next time we've got another FA Cup game, European games are back and some tough league games just a couple of days apart.

    Beautiful goal from Cameron Brannagan to open the scoring, Origi added two more to make sure we got through, they got a man sent off in the second half and we held on to get the victory.
    A very tough draw for us awaits in the sixth round, the quarter finals. We face Man United away and that's going to be a difficult game.

    Divock Origi opened the scoring with an early penalty and the lads went on to the win the game 5-0, what a performance! Origi added two more to complete a hat trick that included another penalty. Ojo and Matip got the other goals and that's got to be tie over, i can't see them coming back from five goals behind at Anfield.

    Big match and we put on yet another excellent display of football, we absolutely smashed Chelsea, who have been on some what of a resurgence after hiring Roberto Mancini. However they are 12th in the league and the league positions of the teams really showed in this game, Goals from Origi, Coutinho, Henderson and a first for Firmino, after returning from injury.

    I had to rest a few players after that Chelsea game and just two days to rest until this Stoke game. We really felt it in the midfield, nobody showed up and we looked really poor. I'm so frustrated after this game, Mane was out injured and we really missed him in this game.

  41. Whats happening with Sturrdige? Is he complaining about lack of games? and have you given him a chance and we was just rubbish?

  42. did you still fit all 4 into your 4-3-3 if so where?

    Yeah it's because his preferred role was assistant manager so I had to give him a pay rise to convince him to be a coach.

    Yes and yes, he's been complaining a lot about lack of games and he was very close to leaving in the summer. However all of the bids come from premier league teams, none of which surpassed £20M. I decided to keep him around as cover for Firmino and Origi up front. Woodburn made his debut this year but he's still very young, next season he'll be another year older as will the maturing Divock Origi. Chances for Sturridge have been limited but to be fair, there's been a few occasions where he could of got a chance but he's been injured.

    Quote Originally Posted by Kap View Post

    I won't lie to you playing this formation has meant one of the four have often dropped to the bench, usually Firmino losing out to Origi up front. It's a shame because they're all great players but i definitely think the formation works better for the team rather than individuals.

    We weren't at our best but that's when you know you're watching a good team when they win and they're not at their best. Coutinho knows all about scoring important goals and he come up with another one here and a big goal for Origi as well.

    Huge game here against United, I've been resting players ahead of it and all we can do is hope we can do enough! It was really close and there wasn't much to separate the teams, unfortunately they grabbed a late goal from youngster Tyrell Warren, coming from a corner. Disappointed but we can still win trophies this season!

    With a league game coming up in just a few days and that 5-0 lead in our favor, I was always going to take the chance to rest some players. They took a surprise lead but we managed to get ourselves into the lead and even though we rested some players, we looked comfortable in this game. Alexander Arnold got his first goal for the club along with a goal for Firmino coming off the bench.

    This is where the Champions League gets interesting with just eight teams left. Who ever we got, it was always going to be a tough a game and we'll certainly have that! Real Madrid await in the Quarter Finals then and that's a very difficult draw, we also have some big league games coming up so i need to make sure I rotate the squad.

    There's not many games left in the league so it's important that we won this game. Firmino started his first game up front in a while and he come up with an assist and his shot was poked in on the rebound by Harry Wilson, after the goalkeeper saved Firmino's shot. Another solid performance and a quality performance from Coutinho with two goals.

    With just seven games left to play, we're well clear at the top of the table and we know whatever Arsenal and United do we'll be at least nine points clear of them. We still have to play Man City, Spurs and Everton though! I really want to go for the Champions League but it won't be easy against Real Madrid and if we do get through it's going to make those tough games in the league coming up, that little bit harder.

    The front three of Mane, Origi and Coutinho were all on their game today, producing the goods and a goal for each of them. We definitely pushed our luck though Madrid could quite easily of had an away goal at 0-0 and 1-0 but they missed their chances, we managed to convert ours. Going in to the second log, it'll still be a tough game but if we can get an away goal, they would need to score and to beat us 5-1, we have to go there and be tough to beat.

    I rested a lot of players for the upcoming game against Real Madrid and I was surprised to see the team play so well, we had a game plan and it worked really well. Harry Wilson in particular was brilliant, scoring a beautiful free kick to wrap up the game and make it 2-0.

    Jordan Henderson and Nathaniel Clyne are suspended for this match but hopefully we can push through. We didn't play our best and they really troubled our goal but despite the 3-1 loss we advance through to the Semi Finals!! After that 3-0 victory at Anfield, we could of scored in the second half, Origi went close but even
    though we didn't play well in this game, we're through! We advance to the Semis and probably had the best possible draw but still a tough one in Dortmund, we avoided Bayern and PSG with free scoring Cavani, who has 18 goals in 10 games! So far in the Champions League this season.

    Again another game where we weren't at our best but surprise surprise it was Divock Origi who bailed us out yet again. We could of scored more but it's very important to get a win at this stage of the season, we did that and you'll take them however they come, even at 1-0. Unfortunately Origi did pick up an injury in the second half keeping him out for 3-4 weeks, which means he will miss both games against Dortmund but if we do make the final, he should be back for that.

    Despite the loss to Real Madrid we advanced to the next round and it's been a good run of games from the lads, It looks like we're going to win the league, we just need a few more wins. Find out next time if we can and we'll also have one final push at the Champions League, with two huge games against Dortmund.
