    Still waiting for them to announce a Liverpool FC friendly at Fenway. You know, the team from Liverpool that wins things?

    • The Gaffer says:

      TheTruth, that’s going to be a very long wait. Liverpool are heading to Asia this summer for a tour through China and Malaysia.

        I know, but that might not be our entire preseason, just hoping that they add a stop. Also, thanks for the EPL in the U.S. schedule page, been using that thing every week.

    “the team from Liverpool that wins things?” … Hmm don’t seem to have won much this year, or last year, or the year before, or … well seems like it’s 5 years since you won anything at all. SO perhaps “the team fromLiverpool that used to win things” would be a better description.
