During Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Greek champions Olympiakos on Sunday, new Reds signing Lazar Markovic hit an unassumijng security guard in the head!
Markovic’s shot may have been off target, but he did strike a “lazar” straight at the guard!
Who makes a better $5 Footlong™: Daniel Sturridge or Jordan Henderson?
We finally found the answer to this powerful life question after the two Liverpool stars faced off in a sandwich-making competition at a Boston Subway. Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Jim Corsi served as the judge, and had to choose between Henderson’s rather simple chicken parmesan and Sturridge’s bizarre steak and meatball concoction.
Find out who won in the video below:
In a quick, unfortunate turn of events for Luis Suarez, the Uruguayan striker underwent surgery Thursday to repair damage to his meniscus. With just 23 short days until Uruguay’s World Cup campaign begins, the talented forward will be cutting it close with his recovery.
Of course, because the World Cup is a time that makes fans go a little bit extra crazy, we have these very stalker-y photos taken of Suarez being wheeled home from an ambulance after his surgery was complete.

At least we know he’s home, safe and sound?
UPDATE: Apparently it’s not just the fans that are hunting Suarez down to get a photo. Professional photographers got in on the action too.

Wondering where it all went wrong (unless you’re a Man City fan) for your Premier League team? Was it “lots of own goals and red cards” that did your team in? Maybe it was spending “£27.5 on a giraffe in a wig” that was the final nail in the coffin?
The fine folks at Project Babb have put together a convenient little flowchart to help answer these questions and make sense of one of the craziest EPL seasons of recent memory.

Manchester United fans haven’t had much to laugh about this season, so a group of them felt they might as well find a way to depress their arch rivals as well. You never suffer alone, right?
With Liverpool having thrown away their chances at a first championship in the Premier League era over the past couple weeks, a pack of United supporters hired a plane — yes, again — to fly over Anfield with a cruel message aimed at captain Steven Gerrard.
Liverpool fans were not amused.

The banner, of course, refers to the number of Premier League titles Steven Gerrard has won - zero, or exactly 20 less than Man United.
However, Liverpool fans can throw a ‘0’ right back at ‘em: that’s the exact number of games United will play in Europe next season, while the Reds will strut their stuff in the Champions League.
But please, no more airplane banners.
PFA Player of the Year - Luis Suarez
The pranksters over at betting site Paddy Power were at it again this weekend, erecting a fake David Moyes statue at Anfield ahead of Liverpool’s title showdown against Chelsea.
Fans gleefully flocked to the statue to take pictures with the “Liverpool legend,” who led arch rivals Man United to their worst finish in the Premier League era, and played a small part in the Reds’ ascendancy this season.

But what started out as a clever joke turned into something dark and sinister by game’s end. Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners, handing Liverpool their first league loss in 2014 and taking away the Reds’ control of the title race.
The Curse of Moyes? It’s very much in play.

Eleven years ago, diehard Liverpool fan Uke Krasniqi vowed to not cut his hair until the Reds won the league title.
He saw his beloved club win the FA, the League Cup and even the coveted Champions League — but that’s not what he wants. He wants the Premier League trophy.
With Liverpool so close to claiming their first title since the 1989-90 season — before the Premier League era — Krasniqi has decided to set up an appointment to cut his hair.
This seems like a bit of a risky move, Uke. Liverpool still have to play Chelsea, and a win for the Blues would put them just two points behind the Reds. Liverpool may be the favorites, but this is far from over.
So if the Reds can’t manage to capture their first league title in more than two decades, the Liverpool faithful will know who to blame for jinxing the club.
