Liverpool vs. Barcelona MOTM review: Another Fab Night at Anfield

Words, words, words. All I have to describe this team are words. But words just aren’t enough. That irrational feeling of hope at kick-off, despite everything. Hearing the noise and seeing those players put 40 minutes of effort into the first 7 minutes, that’s what describes this team. The delirium after the third as we think, “My word, they’re doing it again.” The somewhat calming feeling of confidence as you think they’ve ...

That Anfield European Night – View from the Kop – Barcelona (H)

Anfield… European Nights… another chapter etched into folklore and history. One of the greatest ever nights witnessed in L4 as Barcelona arrived in town, holding a 3-goal advantage from last Wednesday’s first leg.

Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona: Simply Glorious!

I generally hate using worn out phrases, but to call a clash between Liverpool and Barcelona in a Champions League semifinal in this particular moment in time anything other than a final before the final would simply be wrong.

Preview: Barcelona vs Liverpool

It's the clash of the titans. Having brushed off Porto the quarters, the Red army will next face Barcelona in the semis. The Catalans similarly swept aside Manchester United in the previous round, and they'll be more than a worthy foe for the Merseysiders.
