It has finally arrived. After a wild summer of World Cup action that captured the nations attention to LFC USA pre season tour, the season has now arrived! Sunday at 8:30am LFC will kick off this 2014-2015 year and try and improve on last years wild ride of finishing in 2nd place.
As always, the place to be on every MatchDay is the home of the Liverpool Supporters Club of Indianapolis, Indy Anfield as I like to call it, Union Jack Pub.
If you were a little worried about the team & how they will score goals or defend, this last friendly v Dortmund made you feel at ease. Wow, talk about Poetry In Motion. 4-0 drubbing of one of the German Giants.
New boys Lovren & Manquillo were slotted in to Defense & were both impressive. Lovren scored the 2nd goal with a header off the corner. He also made a great pass up to the Little Magician Phillipe Coutinho who somehow not even facing goal flicked it on perfectly to Daniel Sturridge to open up the scoring, Here is the video. The link up between Sturridge, Sterling & Coutinho was great all match long. Great team performance, plus a Clean Sheet which is a huge plus. People are worried about where the goals will come from this year(don’t worry they are there in the squad) but one of the biggest issues was keeping the goals out last year, so it was great to see a goose egg up there for the other team.
In other team News:
Lazar Markovic could be match fit for this weekends opening game. Would be a nice to have him coming off the bench. Was fun to watch briefly in Pre-Season.
Word going around is Moreno could sign after the Super Cup clash this Wednesday. He would be a great signing but it has been an on going saga all Silly Season.
No word yet on the Agger situation, he is now 4th in line at CB. I doubt we want to sell him to someone in England, so unless Barca or someone comes calling he might have an unhappy year.
LFC Indy News: Great job everyone getting those membership numbers to us. Currently we are sitting at 121 members overall with 22 of those folks having LFC memberships. The minimum requirement is 50members/15 with memberships, so great job getting us over the mark. We have potentially more than those numbers, but those are the ones I know about from people who follow on twitter & facebook.
Still keep those member numbers coming though, the more we have the better. Would like to submit paperwork on This Friday 08/15. Then the wait till October to find out if we become official starts.
Now that the season is kicking into gear if you are an Indy Red who likes to right about LFC, please send over some posts for us to put up on the site. It can be anything from Match previews, to player profiles to really about anything LFC related. Would be nice to get a variety of things up here.
New Indy Red fan focus coming again this week, it was a big hit last time around(our most viewed day ever on the site)
Have a great week Indy Reds. In the words of the great Ted Lasso: “Keep Calm And Get Fired Up”
Make sure to get those plans set to head out to Union Jack this Sunday for the match.
