Liverpool has provided its fans a wild ride over the past few years. From despair to jubilation to, well, despair after Stevie’s slip, the emotional rollercoaster has been dizzying. But even after the loss to Man City last week, LFC has much to be excited about.
With Sturridge, Sterling, Coutinho and wildman Mario Balotelli up front, expect Liverpool to find the back of the net over the next year. It will take a few months for everybody to slip into their proper roles, but it will happen. With Lovren’s addition, Liverpool’s back line will also be more effective once they gel as a unit. Add to that a championship draw that sends the Reds to face off against Real Madrid in Europe and you have the makings of a magical season. Hopefully, our good run will begin this Labor Day weekend against Tottenham.
One final note: Xabi Alonso showed once again why he has always been a fan favorite at Anfield. The midfielder passed up a return to the Premier League because he said he didn’t want to play for any team in England other than Liverpool. Let’s hope my favorite Liverpool alum has one more stop in him before the end of his career.
