Has anyone seen any presale codes for Fenway? I may have a line on Notre Dame Stadium tickets but the price ranges there ($50-600 with no seating chart ranges published) are actually higher than Fenway ($40-$250) which seems counter intuitive.

I've got a full year LFC membership - the Fenway presale's supposed to be ongoing from 10 AM GMT today for 24 hours - but the link on LFC's website sends me here where there is no ticket link -.-

Ha, the link from Sevilla's website redirects to the Sox homepage: redsox.com/sevillafc

GJGE all around

edit: looks like some links have 10 AM GMT, others have 10 AM EST... we'll see shortly I guess

Thanks for the "info"....sounds like a clusterbacle so far. I'll update on the ND Stadium tickets once I hear back from my in-laws. They are faculty there so they have a presale starting at 10am.

Just a remarkable match today. I caught Gini’ post-game interview. He said he was angry and disappointed to be left out of the starting XI, but that Klopp told him that “you’re our secret weapon” at half time.

I believe Firmino has already been ruled out against Wolves, and Salah is expected to be cleared for return. Will have to see how injured Robertson is. (Suárez is no longer our asshole, so now he’s just a real fucking asshole.)

Wolves will be looking to cap their excellent season with a shocking win. They’re locked into 7th, so really they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. So far this season, Liverpool dominated at Wolves in a 2-0 win. More recently, Wolves bounced the Red’s B-team from the FA Cup 3rd round, Neves hitting the winner in a 2-1 match that was played pretty evenly, though pretty poorly.

Wolves will defend in numbers and fill the middle of the pitch to try to clog up the attack. TAA & Robertson/Milner will have to make effective use of the space they’re allowed. But the best chances will come from the high press, particularly if Wolves use Boly to start transitions & build ups. He can be forced into mistakes, and the other 2 CBs will struggle to keep up with Mane & Salah in the chaos following a loss of possession. Liverpool’s key on defense will be limiting the space Jota can find, so Fabinho will be busy.

In the end I think Wolves will have a few good chances on the counter, but Liverpool will have more and better opportunities. They’ll need to finish them and pray for a miracle in Brighton.

Thanks. That was really interesting

I always felt like last three years have felt like the 2002-4 Sox. Even moreso after reading that

I always wondered if Leicester used data analysis when they went to their trapping strategy and won the league. I was hoping the article would explore that.

Is it June 1 yet.

Liverpool to offer Milner & Matip extensions. This article states Milner still has a year left, which makes sense. He's too valuable to allow his contract to run down without an extension offer.

Matip has a had a solid season. I think he's fine to retain as a rotation option. The real question is, what to do with the best CB in the world (Lovren)?

I think Klopp is fine with his CB options - currently Lovren would seem to be #4 in the pecking order , and its an open question as to whether Lovren is fine with that. Given the dodgy health of the non-VVD CBs there seems to be plenty of playing time

California. Duh.
When Klopp first came to Liverpool, he forbid the players from touching the This is Anfield sign until they won something. I'm expecting them to make a big deal about it before the first home game that everyone will touch it on the way out to the pitch.
