Peter Moore reacts to Liverpool's Premier League title win

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 06/25/2020 - 23:00

Liverpool chief executive officer Peter Moore paid tribute to Jürgen Klopp, his players and his backroom team - as well as supporters - after they were crowned Premier League champions tonight.

The Reds secured their 19th title after Manchester City’s 2-1 at Chelsea left them uncatchable at the summit of the division, despite seven games still remaining.

Moore said: “Many congratulations to the whole first-team squad, manager, players and backroom staff. It’s a phenomenal achievement to win this hugely competitive league by so many points.

“The football played this season has been exhilarating and the team fully deserves the plaudits and recognition. Over the past year, we have been crowned European champions, club world champions and today champions of England. A truly incredible achievement. 

“I am also delighted and eternally grateful to our supporters for their unwavering commitment, season in, season out, and for playing a crucial role in our recent success.

“They were there when Sadio scored a stoppage-time winner at Villa, they were there when Mo sealed victory with a last-minute goal against United. They were with us every step of the way, just as they have been for the last 30 years, until events prevented that from being possible. Although it’s not possible to celebrate this win at Anfield right now, we will celebrate in our own way, safely and accordingly. 

“Restarting the season has only been possible due to the incredible dedication of our staff who work tirelessly behind the scenes every single day to support the football operations. By working together with our city partners including Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Police, Liverpool City Region and the local community, we have enabled a hugely successful matchday operation at Anfield. I am privileged to work with all these amazing people and organisations to grasp yet another historic season for our wonderful football club.

“Our priority remains on the health and wellbeing of our people, the local community and supporters. We hope that winning the Premier League will bring some joy to all our supporters around the world during these challenging times.”

Liverpool FC: Premier League champions 2019-20

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 06/25/2020 - 22:05

Liverpool Football Club are Premier League champions.

The Reds have clinched the crown for 2019-20 after Wednesday’s 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Anfield left Manchester City needing a win against Chelsea this evening.

The 2-1 defeat for City at Stamford Bridge ensures Jürgen Klopp’s side cannot mathematically be caught in the table.

It means Liverpool have secured the club’s 19th league title, ending a 30-year wait following their previous success in 1990.

In an unprecedented campaign, the club have claimed the championship earlier than any other side in Premier League history, doing so with seven games still to be contested.

The Reds equalled a top-flight record of 18 successive victories – and also set a new landmark for number of consecutive league home triumphs, with the win against Palace their 23rd in a row.

Their record for the season so far stands at 86 points accumulated after 31 matches played, with 28 wins, two draws and one defeat.

Introducing the Liverpool Mishmash – The history of the Reds in one image

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 06/25/2020 - 16:00

To mark what will be the end of a 30-year wait for a league title, the ‘Liverpool Mishmash’ is now available to pre-order, exclusively on This Is Anfield.

Designed by football illustrator Alex Bennett, the unique artwork is the history of the Reds in one image – from the club’s inception in 1892 to the 2020 Premier League title.

After almost two years and over 2,000 hours of painstaking work, you can now pre-order it today!

We spoke to Alex to find out more about the process involved, the hidden details, and why this makes a truly unique piece of Liverpool artwork.

First off, are you saving space for a certain image…?

Yes, of course! The fact that I will complete this illustration with such a historic moment as Jordan Henderson lifting the Premier League trophy is brilliant. I’d like to say it was planned but I can’t say I gave it a second thought when I started it!

That’s a relief! When did you start the Liverpool Mishmash and how much work has gone into it?

I started the Liverpool Mishmash back in October 2018. I estimate I’ve spent around 2,000 hours illustrating it as well as a vast amount of time researching certain moments from the club’s history, responding to emails from supporters, watching YouTube videos on repeat of goals to ensure I get the body positions in an accurate position.

There are some amazing details in the Mishmash. How does the design process actually work?

I spent a couple of months working on adding some of the more obvious things to the canvas. For example, the first things that went in were the Shankly Gates, Grobbelaar’s spaghetti legs and Gerrard kissing the camera at Old Trafford.

Once I added those in, I opened it up to social media to ask for ideas and suggestions from supporters.

When people get the jist of the idea and see that I am adding their suggestions, a small wave of information suddenly turns into an avalanche of stories, images and anecdotes. It has become near enough impossible to respond to everyone’s ideas so I apologise now, I wasn’t being rude! I did read everything though!

I illustrate everything using the medieval tools of pencil, paper and ink. Once I am happy with the outlines, I will take them into Photoshop where I add colour, shading and the shirt graphics and numbers. Once I am happy with the accuracy, I will take the individual drawing into the main Mishmash canvas.

A certain scenario such as Collymore’s late winner vs. Newcastle has to be placed where he scored on that part of the pitch.

As it builds up, it becomes more and more like piecing together a jigsaw in reverse. Some things can move anywhere but certain key incidents can’t move and therefore dictate where other moments can go.

Over the course of the 20 months of creating this, I have reduced the scale twice. I always knew I was going to be depicting the Kop, and one of the many things the Kop is famous for is the banners and flags. The amount I have been asked to put in has been relentless. They have taken up a fair bit of room so I have adjusted the scale to where it hopefully has a balance between them and the rest of the crowd.

What are some of your favourite parts of the Liverpool Mishmash?

It’s always the comical moments that are my favourite parts. For example, the kids from the Accrington Stanley milk advert, Keegan falling off his bike during Superstars, and the fan giving Origi a big kiss!

I spent far too long drawing the graffiti on the wall from the Anfield Rap. The Liver Building was also quite a challenge. Overall I’m quite happy with how it’s all pieced together (so far)!

And what are the best requests or hidden details fans can expect?

It’s impossible to say but recently it’s been McAllister’s late free-kick winner at Goodison as I’ve sat on that for a few months as I wasn’t sure how it would fit. Fortunately, I was able to nudge Alonso shooting from his own half along!

Trent’s corner taken quickly was requested alot as was Curtis Jones‘ winner vs Everton, especially that evening!

It may not look it but there’s still a bit of space left. I will be adding more incidents and suggestions from the past that I have been requested. Of course there will be many highlights from the games to come to add. I’m just hoping there are no more blockbuster strikes from the left-hand side of the goal as that part of the pitch is quite congested!…. I’ve tempted fate there!

Fans who order this can expect to look at this and bring back lots of happy memories. Of course, not everything in the Mishmash is good, I have tried my best to be respectful to tragedy and fans and players who have passed away.

It will be a talking point in any Liverpool fans household for years to come. You’ll spot something new every time you walk past it. It’s been an incredible challenge to create but a highly enjoyable process.

Liverpool FC confirm 8 departures as Nathaniel Clyne heads list

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 06/25/2020 - 15:20

Liverpool have confirmed Nathaniel Clyne will leave the club on the expiry of his contract next month, with the right-back one of eight players set to depart.

Clyne joined the Reds from Southampton in 2015, and initially established himself as first-choice right-back before injuries and the rise of Trent Alexander-Arnold left him out of favour.

A loan spell with Bournemouth in the second half of last season was expected to lead to a permanent exit, only for an ACL blow in pre-season to rule him out for the majority of 2019/20.

With no offer of a short-term extension to his deal, as was the case with Adam Lallana and Andy Lonergan, Liverpool have now confirmed Clyne will leave on July 1.

The 29-year-old is unlikely to be short of offers when he becomes a free agent, with the likes of Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and West Ham touted with moves in recent seasons.

He is not the only player to be leaving Liverpool at the end of June, with seven academy players also set to depart.

Goalkeepers Dan Atherton, Shamal George and Kai McKenzie-Lyle will both leave, along with under-18s Jack Walls, Alex Turner and Abel Rodriques.

Midfielder Isaac Christie-Davies, who impressed on his first-team debut against Aston Villa in the League Cup in December, is also on his way out, having seen his recent half-season loan with Cercle Brugge hampered by injury.

The Reds have already seen Pedro Chirivella join Nantes on a free transfer, and it could be that others follow Lallana out of the club later in the summer.

There are question marks over the futures of Dejan Lovren and Xherdan Shaqiri, while the club are said to be open to offers for Divock Origi, along with loanees such as Marko Grujic and Harry Wilson.

Nathaniel Clyne set to leave Reds upon contract expiry

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 06/25/2020 - 14:59

Liverpool can confirm Nathaniel Clyne will depart the club at the end of this month upon the expiry of his contract.

The defender’s time with the Reds will conclude on June 30, bringing to an end a five-year spell at Anfield.

Clyne has made 103 appearances for the club, scoring twice, following a transfer from Southampton in July 2015.

He featured 52 times in all competitions during his first season, during which Jürgen Klopp was appointed to the helm and Liverpool reached the finals of the League Cup and Europa League.

Indeed, the manager used the word ‘machine’ to describe the performances of Clyne and his energy levels.

The No.2 was equally as dependable in 2016-17 when he ran out in 37 of the Reds’ 38 league games to help secure Champions League qualification.

Sadly, injuries restricted Clyne to 10 appearances in the following three campaigns, while he also spent time on loan at AFC Bournemouth.

Everyone at Liverpool Football Club would like to thank Nathaniel for his service and wish him all the best in his future career.

Meanwhile, several Academy players will also leave Liverpool at the end of June, with Dan Atherton, Isaac Christie-Davies, Shamal George, Kai McKenzie-Lyle, Jack Walls, Alex Turner and Abel Rodrigues set to depart.

They will do so with the gratitude of everyone at the club for their service and best wishes for the future.
