Liverpools Sponsors And The Asian Issue

This year has been quite kind to Liverpool Football Club so far. They may have been knocked out of the two trophies that they began 2011 with a chance of winning, but it’s likely that only the Europa League can be considered a genuine disappointment.

They’re Not Brazil, They’re Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland have had a mixed start to their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign and remain one of Europe’s more enigmatic teams. Kevin Leonard has been keeping up to date with their progess.

Match Of The Midweek: Dagenham & Redbridge 0-1 Brighton & Hove Albion

So near, yet so far. Brighton & Hove Albion travel to North-East London to play Dagenham & Redbridge in a league match for the first time this evening with the scent of promotion heavy in the air. That Gus Poyet’s team has been the stand-out team in League One this season is inarguable, but in…
