PODCAST: Reds legends look ahead to Official Story of LFC

LIVERPOOL’S waterfront entertainment venue, The Echo Arena, plays host to a popular play based on the life of the city’s favourite club (in our opinion), Liverpool FC, at the end of the month.

The three-night stay will be the final time the production is shown in Liverpool in its current form. It moves onto Belfast next, with writer Nicky Allt hoping to see it performed down under at some point after that.

Anfield Road were invited along to speak to Nicky, a couple of cast members and two of the legends that have helped The Reds write all of that rich history. Read more

Sturridge and Ibe in "hip-hop battle"

International Champions CupBRENDAN RODGERS and his Liverpool side are out in the States as part of their pre-season preparations and, of course, to ‘build the brand’. Away from all the marketing speak it’s an opportunity for the club’s legion of fans based across the pond to see their heroes in person, something fans back home in England maybe take a touch for granted.

As always the club will look to involve its stars in local culture in some way and in New York last week that entailed getting a couple of players to take up a challenge relating to hip-hop.

Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Ibe were the pair selected for this task and LFCTV caught it all on camera, as seen below.

If you haven’t got time to watch the whole quiz yet there’s also a shorter clip featuring Sturridge performing a Drake song:

Tonight the Reds take on their old rivals from down the East Lancs, Manchester United, in the final of the tournament they have been competing in whilst over in the US. The Guinness International Champions Cup (not to be confused with the UEFA Champions League, which of course Manchester United aren’t involved in this season) comes to an end with the two North West England giants taking each other on in Miami. Kick-off is 8pm local time, 1am Tuesday morning UK time.

What does the 2014/2015 season hold for Liverpool?

THE Anfield faithful have always held a strong belief that their team will once again compete for major honours following a relatively barren spell from the Champions League triumph in 2005. Their dreams and aspirations may now be met by Liverpool’s resurgence as a major Premier League contender following a wonderful 2013/2014 campaign where they came so close to lifting the title. Lessons were learnt from the manner in which Liverpool threw away a wonderful opportunity to win their first league title since 1990, but it should take nothing away from the excellent job Brendan Rodgers has done to make the club competitive again.
