On Lucas Leiva

Oh, You Beauty... at related • 0 views
The inevitable finally happens. After 10 seasons at the club – Liverpool's longest serving player by some distance – Lucas is moving to Lazio for a rumored £5m. It's a day long in coming, a day filled with happy memories, but also a day filled with regret. And sadness.

And with a couple of what-ifs.

Oh, You Beauty... at related • 0 views
For all the hand-wringing and fears, Mohamed Salah is now a Liverpool player. For what might be a Liverpool record transfer fee, dependent on add-ons and accounting and who's reporting. And, to be fair to Liverpool, it is only June 22.



Well that's encouraging. Continual improvement from age 21 through now, an absolutely stunning last two seasons at AS Roma, and even his Chelsea tenure seems under-appreciated in statistical retrospect.

Here's the actual game-by-game fixture list from the official site.

And a reminder: for comparable results between the three relegated and promoted clubs, it's in order of finish from last season. The 18th-placed side in 2016-17 matches up with last season's Championship winners, 19th with last season's runners-up, and 20th with the playoff winners.

2016-17 Liverpool Season Review

Oh, You Beauty... at related • 0 views
This was an okay season! Good, even! Really good when you remember the two before! It could have been better – and we all distinctly remember when, where, and how – but it could have been a lot worse. It usually is, after all. Liverpool scored a lot of goals – mainly in stretches, in spurts – and Liverpool let in a couple fewer than the past two seasons.

I had honestly forgotten what Liverpool running riot looked like. What Liverpool running riot felt like.

It's not bad.
