August 28th 2015 Newsletter: West Ham (Tomorrow at 9am, get there early) & a PL match ticket raffle!
Hope you all have had a good few weeks to start the season. The Reds are unbeaten, having won two matches 1-0 and most recently drawing at Arsenal. We’ve been building upon our performances each week, but there are still definitely plenty of kinks that need to be worked out. On the transfer front, we don’t seem to be interested in signing anyone, but Balotelli has left and Borini and Enrique will likely follow him out the door as well. Lucas seems set to stay after a very good performance at the Emirates, but there are plenty of question marks around the future of Mamadou Sakho.
Europa League groups were drawn today, with the Reds taking on Rubin Kazan, Bordeaux and FC Scion. Europa League fixtures will be played on Thursdays between mid September and early December. While we haven’t done particularly well in Europe under Rodgers, this represents one of the more possible routes back into the Champion’s League next season. And if nothing else, it should be a good chance to see the rest of the squad! We will also be hosting Carlisle United in the League Cup on September 23rd.
Tomorrow morning the Reds take on West Ham at Anfield and as always you can watch the match at A.J. Hudson’s, live from 9am. It’ll be a busy day tomorrow, with Chelsea and City playing at the same time, and Spurs and Everton playing later on in the day. So get there early if you want a seat.
Another advantage to getting in there early is getting a few Carlsbergs in you for our second raffle of the season. Similar to the raffle earlier this month (where Kevin Kearns won a trip for two to Anfield), each pint of Carlsberg gets you a raffle ticket. This weekends prize is two Premier League match tickets to the match of your choice. The drawing will be held after the final whistle and you must be present to claim your prize, or we will move on to the next ticket. Also note, this raffle will not be exclusive to LFC fans, so get some drinks in and make sure a Chelsea fan doesn’t win! For more details on the raffles, check our website
That’s all for now, see you at AJ’s and remember to get there early!
