Oh When The Reds…Go Marching In…
Liverpool FC is coming to the states in less than two weeks to kick off their preseason International Champions Cup tour of the United States with a match at the iconic Fenway Park in Boston, MA on July 23rd. It will be a rematch against Roma, who had bested them at their debut in Boston a couple years back. From there, LFC will match up against Olympiacos at Chicago’s Soldier Field on the 27th. On July 30th, LFC will play league champions Manchester City at the house that Steinbrener built, Yankee Stadium, closing out their summer tour in Charlotte, NC at Bank of America Stadium against AC Milan on August 2nd.
Warrior Releases LFC’s 3rd Kit
On July 7th, we finally caught a glimpse of the 3rd kit we would be wearing during our first Champions League campaign in a few years. Liverpool fan favorite and Champions League hero Luis Garcia had this to say about our 3rd kit.
“I love the way this shirt looks,” said Garcia. “The red collar on the black shirt gives it a very stylish look and as always, Warrior has incorporated the best material and details to keep players comfortable whilst playing.”
I love the new kits. Being an San Diego State University Alumni, I can easily see myself rocking the new kit at the Aztecs games… and if fate smiles upon me, when I make it to Anfield Road. What do you think of the new kits ladies and gentlemen? Let us know on social media, either via twitter or on Facebook.
Gerrard Bids Farewell to Luis Suarez on Instagram
With Luis Suarez headed to Barcelona, he has left all of us Liverpool FC faithful split on his departure. Our captain Steven Gerrard had these parting words to honor his former teammate on a post via Instagram
“On an emotional day for me would just like to say what a pleasure it has been playing with an amazing talent such as Luis. I would like to thank him for his outstanding contribution on the pitch during his time @liverpoolfc and to wish him and his family all the best on his new adventure in Spain. #lfclegend”
One thing to keep in mind, it was Suarez’s masterful season last year that helped LFC get over the hump and shake the Champions League monkey off our back. Many of us are wondering what could have been, had SAS remained intact. It was amazing to watch such masterful football from Suarez, I will miss the Kop singing the familiar Depeche Mode melodies when number 7 took over the game. At this moment, I stand by my captain thanking Luis for his service and now on to the next season. No player is bigger than the club. It’ll be interesting to see what the LFC brass has planned for that pretty penny we received for Suarez. So far we have Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Emre Can… and this just in… Lazar Markovic.
What are your thoughts on this year’s World Cup? What do you think of the new 3rd kits? Any thoughts on Luis Suarez, or better yet… how we should spend the money to shore up our starting 11? Let us know on social media wither via Facebook or Twitter.
