Week in Review: May 7, 2018

These weeks just keep flying by! Next thing you know, we're all planning Champions League parties... But for now, here's some of the big notes for the past week:

We're in the FINAL!


Unless you've been living under a rock, you should know by now. But for all those rock dwellers, a 4-2 loss to Roma was enough to ensure LFC came out on top over the two legged semi-final. Liverpool took a good lead thanks to strikes from Sadio and Gini, but Roma just wouldn't go away and ended up taking full control of the match. It went down to the wire, but Roma's comeback would fall short, once again proving that Liverpool are in fact not Barcalona.

Pressure on 4th

Results in the EPL continue to be a bit disappointing. Of course all eyes are rightfully on our CL campaign, and one would have to believe that it remains the priority of the coaching staff and players alike, but securing a top 4 spot this season is crucial for pushing on next season. Frankly, a 1-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday didn't help that cause. It's all down to the last match of the season vs. Brighton at home. Let's not mess this up, shall we?

I actually missed the match myself, but the match thread is still up as always.

Stevie G!

Our little manager in training is moving up in the world! Steven Gerrard has been named as manager of Rangers for their 2018/19 season. While there's some critics of the move, it's great to see Stevie finally getting a chance to manage a first team, rather than the kids. He's done a great job with the reserves, so I have no doubt that if given support he'll kick on with Rangers.

Also of note, it seems Gary McAllister is set to be the assistant manager.

Transfers


The biggest development was the rumor that Nabil Fekir and Lyon have agreed to a £61.7 deal with Liverpool to see him line up in red next season. While obvious skepticism must be used, I can't help but get excited. He's an explosive dribbler, creative playmaker, and just a great all around attacking player that could really push our midfield to the next level, along with Naby Keita. An agreement has been denied across the board by all parties, but they're hardly going to admit it with time still left in the season. Fingers crossed it's true!

Get well soon!

As much as we might disdain the effects Sir Alex Ferguson had on Manchester Utd's fortunes for most of the 21st century, no one can deny that he's a true legend of the game. SAF was admitted to a hospital over the weekend and underwent emergency surgery for a brain hemorrhage. The situation remains serious, so best wishes to him in his recovery.

And on that note, I'd like to also extend best wishes to all those in the community currently recovering from/receiving treatment for serious health issues. I don't think I need to drop any names for you to know who they are. YNWA!

Site Updates

Naming is still on hold. I'm incredibly busy over the next week+, so I won't be able to get to it for awhile. If someone wants to take up the responsibility to figure it out, I'd appreciate that. Side note, The Boot Room is taken by an established site so that appears to be off the table.
