Firstly congratulations to Man City but what a superb season for Liverpool FC, we all know our aim was to finish 4th and regain UEFA Champions League football but we did two better than that and secured 2nd in the Premier League table. We pushed all the way to the last day and I and you should be very proud of the club this season. We have a young squad and a young and hungry manager in Brendan Rodgers and he has certainly bought back the good times. A superb season for @luis16suarez with a record equalling 31 league goals in less than 38 league games. We had some superb efforts from the young lads in Flanagan and Sterling and more, Daniel Sturridge was fantastic to watch all season, showing what he can do when played on a regular basis. Mingolet had a great first season for me and saved us on some occasions he was wrongly accused of being poor, Skrtel shown a massive commitment to the squad and had a good season after some rumours of him leaving/being sold in the summer. I today am very proud to be a Liverpool fan and to jump from 7th to 2nd is a very good achievement. Next season we go again.

Let’s tweet #ThankYouLFC !!! Show our support

Now for the World Cup #YNWA

Liverpool v Newcastle – Last but not least

A relevant expression for Liverpool and all Premiership fans today as the season draws to a close and the winner still to be decided.

I’m not altogether surprised. This has been a fantastic season. As a Liverpool supporter I can only be proud of the team whatever the outcome. Nobody imagined they’d be where they are now, last August.

Liverpool host Newcastle this afternoon looking to end the season on a positive note following a less than positive result that has seen the title slip from their grasp. Having said that, it’s not impossible for Brendan Rodgers’ men to finish this campaign as winners. They simply have no control over the destiny of the trophy any longer and this is probably the biggest choker.

Harold Wilson said a week is a long time in politics. Well, it’s not exactly a blink of an eye in football either. It seems like only the other day the world and his wife were making out the title was Liverpool’s. A win at home against Manchester City seemed to confirm as much. Only for the optimism to be cruelly undone with a needless capitulation at Selhurst Park in the drawn match against Crystal Palace. It looked to be over. Tears, jeers and rivals’ sneers. How quickly romance changes. Flying high in April, shot down in May sang Frank Sinatra.   However, in June it’s too late to make them change their tune.

It’s not over just yet in any case. There’s still the last game. The final push. The last stand. The odds are stacked firmly against us. I read a stat  a while back that said the team that tops the league at Christmasusually wins the title in May. Could this be true this season also? Is it totally beyond the realms if possibility for West Ham to win at the Etihad Stadium? Is it beyond belief that Liverpool could do Newcastle at home on the same day? Is it unheard of for snow in May? The answer to all of these is no. It’s not impossible. It’s not beyond belief and it’s certainly not unheard of.

Team wise, I expect Jordan Henderson to return to the starting eleven after completing his three-match ban. An event that has truly hurt Liverpool’s challenge more than most can appreciate. Joe Allen will probably make way for him. In view of the lack of depth in the squad, there aren’t many other options. Unfortunately the same applies in defence. Having the choice of Mamadou Sakho and Daniel Agger to partner Martin Skrtel is not exactly mouthwatering. If the speculation surrounding Steven Caulker is true then there is hope for next season at least.

I’m sure there’ll be some twists and turns before the final whistles blow across the country. I don’t like roller coasters but I’m enjoying this one. I still think Liverpool can deliver but only time, some heart palpitations and Lady Luck will tell.

The last throw of the dice

In little less than an hour the final games of the 2013/14 Barclays Premiership season will kick off. Liverpool need a convincing win over an unconvincing Newcastle and Manchester City need to fall prey to  Sam Allardyce’s wily West Ham. Should that come about all LFC fans will be singing in their beer tonight!

I remain hopeful because that’s all I have left. It’s all we have left as Liverpool fans. One final push, Let’s keep the belief .

Jordan Henderson returns from suspension and I have to say he’s been sorely, sorely missed. His energy and courage has been a god send this last couple of seasons and whatever happens today, he, the team and us fans can be immensely proud. The team can still secure the runner-up berth and that in itself would be a fantastic achievement. The team can play without fear or inhibition. There’s no pressure on the Reds today. Just do as best they can and if that’s half as good as we’ve seen this season, then they’ll be OK.

So, I’m keeping this brief. Hopefully the match report will be about the unlikely champions. YNWA
