It is MatchDay!! Man that feels good to say again. LFC play tonight at Historic Fenway Park in Boston v Italian side Roma. 7:30pm Kickoff. The match will be live on NBCSN. Arlo White will be announcing the match. We are having a watch party, the first of the new season at our home spot Indy Anfield or as most know it Union Jack Pub in Broad Ripple. Great Beer, Great Food, plus Great Indy Reds will be there. If you’ve never been to UJ’s for a match or have never been there before it is a wonderful place. The owner has been very accommodating over the last year bringing soccer fans back in to the pub. They have had a great year being the home pub for LFC Indy opening up early & also they are the home pub for the American Outlaws here in Indy, so if you were there during the World Cup you know it is an excellent spot.
Not sure if a lot of the “big boys” will be back tonight. Stevie/Sterling/Sturridge/Hendo/Lallana have only been back in training for a few days, so we might end up seeing a lot of the young guns again, but also we should get to see a few of the new signings like Lambert, Can, Markovic.
Two sites you should be checking frequently during the tour should be LFC USA website dedicated to the tour. Lots of good articles on there and interviews etc, there is also fan focus profiles about some of the supporters here in the USA & two folks from Indy have been featured. Best Selling Author and dude who has blown up over this last year John Green He is pretty fun to follow on twitter. The other Indy Red just happened to be the first person profiled on the LFC Tour website.
The other site is the Liverpool Echo. They have a nice live feed that is updated by two of their reporters who are in the States following the team. Lots of pictures/videos and little insights.
Transfer News: Looks like Striker Loic Remy is going to be a Red. He flew to Boston & had his medical done. He seems to be taking a pay cut in his weekly wages to sign. He is a good signing. He scored 14times last year for a not very good Newcastle side. He is good quality depth.
Versatile CB Dejan Lovren is also close to signing it looks like.
Other links have been a loan move for Atletico Madrid Fullback Manquillo. He is young but fits in the style system that Rodgers wants.
Still no big name in lights marquee signing that some fans want. Moreno, Reus, Di Maria, Isco, Benzema all names that have been linked.
Keep those scarf designs coming, and also any article or feature you’d like to have up here on the site get those emailed to LFCIndy7@gmail.com
Looking forward to seeing all of you at Union Jack Pub tonight for the match & also up in Chicago!
