The Liverpool-Dortmund Connection

When I flew out to Dortmund, Germany a few weeks ago for my brother’s 21st birthday, I was expecting to have an experience completely different to that which I’ve encountered in Liverpool.

Still top of the Premier League after a busy Christmas schedule, the Reds remain four points clear of Manchester City and have a mouth-watering tie next month against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Match Report: University of Liverpool 1st 3-3 John Moores University 2nd

The University of Liverpool Football 1st Team were on the receiving end of a stunning comeback as the bragging rights on derby day were shared with Liverpool John Moores University on Wednesday afternoon. In a game of two halves, UoLFC led by 3 at half-time after goals from James Frudd, Maxim Green and Ed Simon, before a resurgent John Moores eradicated the deficit to claim an unlikely point on the astroturf at Wyncote Sports Grounds. UoLFC were alert right from the match’s kick-off, with both centre-backs combining to block an early John Moores chance well. After having difficulty retaining...
