Last season, Liverpool had won 11 straight through late April and, with just three games left in the season, needed just six points to put the title away. As we now know, the Reds choked away the title by losing to Chelsea and then, incredibly, gave up a 3-0 lead to Crystal Palace to draw 3-3 and effectively end their title hopes. Suarez cried. Manchester City won the title. It was something else.

Monday was Liverpool’s chance for vengeance against the team that yanked the rug out from under them in Manchester City. Only the game was at the Etihad in Manchester, and Liverpool didn’t really show up in the final third. City won 3-1.

This was probably the game’s greatest moment. Just 23 seconds after subbing on, Aguero latched onto a gorgeous long ball from Jesus Navas and, with his second touch of the game, pushed home City’s third for a 3-0 lead. Liverpool scored one late, but that moment was as appropriate a microcosm as any for this game. Liverpool being old Liverpool.

Luis Suarez scored 31 goals this season for Liverpool. That’s a lot of goals. In fact, it was only three goals off the record-setting pace of 34 shared by Newcastle’s Andrew Cole and Blackburn’s Alan Shearer, who did it in back-to-back years in the mid-90s. It also tied him with Cristano Ronaldo’s tally from the 2007-2008 season, so, yeah, it was a pretty good year for Luis Suarez.

Now it’s time to relive his haul. All 31 goals here for your viewing pleasure. This time with less biting!

We like fan reaction videos around here. Most notably, Landon Donovan incited a brilliant one when he scored in the final minutes against Algeria at World Cup 2010 to send the Americans through to the knockouts. Pandemonium.

This one is pretty great as well. Liverpool shouldered past Manchester City on Sunday to take a step closer toward its first league title since 1990. This all still seems strangely impossible, but here we are.

Anyhow, this video comes to us via The Sandon Pub just outside Anfield, where a group of crazed Liverpool supporters are shadowed by a video camera through the ups and downs of the match. The final whistle is fun.

Liverpool’s official launch of their 2014-15 kits isn’t slated until Thursday, but it seems we have a leak. This is a sneak peek at their home look, with Gerrard and Suarez looking appropriately nonplussed.

Is Warrior finally figuring all this out? Hard to say, since their 2013-14 home kits were universally applauded (as will these likely be, though that white piping around the collar seems a bit odd) while those away and third kits were the ugliest things since… ever?

Liverpool and Everton played out a thrilling 3-3 draw last weekend, and comedian Darren Farley wasted little time lampooning Liverpool boss Brendan Rogers in a faux postgame presser. Pay special attention to the “I just whiffed a fart” face. Nailed it, bro.

Liverpool captured a dramatic 1-0 win over Stoke City on Saturday to help kick off the brand new 2013-14 EPL season in style. The game had a bit of everything, including a theatric late-game penalty save to preserve the win at a rowdy Anfield.

This is a wonderful fan-made video that aptly captures the drama of sitting in the Kop End for the start of another season. What it does not show is the club’s inevitable winter crash and the very moment that particular pub turns from a cheery celebratory home to a depressing meat locker primarily used for kicking inanimate objects and biting things. Hashtag Liverpool.

Not everyone loves preseason summer visits from European clubs, but Melbourne, Australia welcomed Premier League side Liverpool with open arms on Wednesday.

Playing A-League side Melbourne Victory (a game they won 2-0), Liverpool players might’ve thought they were back at Anfield as they were serenaded in rather spectacular fashion by the crowd of 95,000 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground prior to kick off.

It might have been a meaningless game, but the fans surely didn’t seem to care.

Warrior. Famous for lacrosse. Not soccer. I repeat. Not soccer. Jose Enrique discovered this fact the hard way. Look at that picture. It’s like the uniform just farted in his face.

Instead of just manufacturing lax gear, now they’re ruining soccer uniforms. Saying nothing of Sevilla, which is now also a Warrior franchise, Liverpool’s 2013-14 kits are unspeakably terrible. Don’t know if you knew this, but Warrior is also the official outfitter of the White Walkers descending upon the Seven Kingdoms. They’re purple and have Richard Simmons’ face print-screened on the front. The revolution will be fabulous.

Feel free to meme the crap out of these Liverpool unis. The more the merrier.

So the word on the pitch is that Liverpool’s Luis Suarez could face a ban after he got caught on tape punching Chile’s Gonzalo Jara square in the mug.

But enough about that, umm, what’s the opposite of a ban? Whatever it is, Jara deserves that and more after he took the shot to the kisser and didn’t even think about flopping. I mean, if ever there was a moment when a player deserved to flail his head back and fall to the ground like he’d been shot it was this one.

But he didn’t. He just ate it and moved on. That, my friend, is how you earn respect … and brain damage, but mostly respect!

Fernando Torres has been highly criticized since Chelsea bought him from Liverpool, and the Chelsea fans and media have been highly disappointed with him at times. However, during his years in Chelsea he has won more the never before – Champions League, European Championship and the Golden Boot, etc … Still, he is criticized for not being as good as he used to be or at least not as good as his price tag.

But this season, Torres has scored 16 goals in 49 games; not a bad record for a striker, and those goals have come in seven different cups and leagues. Now that is something many strikers will never be able to accomplish, despite what all of the naysayers may think.
