Liverpool Episode 43 - Come Together
Come Together | The Beatles from Maíra Cardoso on Vimeo.
Fascinating story, at least if wikipedia is correct, about the origin of the song, Come Together. Excerpt:
The thing was created in the studio. It's gobbledygook; Come Together was an expression that Leary had come up with for his attempt at being president or whatever he wanted to be, and he asked me to write a campaign song. I tried and tried, but I couldn't come up with one. But I came up with this, Come Together, which would've been no good to him - you couldn't have a campaign song like that, right?
In any case, the sentiment for LFC fans is the knowledge that after the dramatic victory over Dortmund on Thursday, the line-up was expected to be quite different. Will a mix of the "B" team with the "A" team be able to come together to compete with the one of the feel good stories of the EPL this year in the staying up of Bournemouth?
Update: 0-2 with goals by Firmino and Sturridge late in the first half.
In LFC team injury news, Can will be out the rest of the EPL season with injury.
On Friday, Anfield was the site of the 27th anniversary of the Hillsborough 96. Very recent Liverpool supporters may not know of the terrible tragedy of Hillsborough and the ongoing investigation to The UK Guardian article explained: The 96 people who died, all Liverpool supporters, aged 10 to 67, were killed following a lethal crush on Hillsborough’s Leppings Lane terrace at the FA Cup semi final against Nottingham Forest, in which 400 more people were taken to hospital with crush-related injuries. The new inquests, ordered after the first was finally quashed in December 2012 following the families’ long campaign against the 1991 verdict, has lasted more than two years since it started on 1 April 2014, becoming by far the longest legal case heard by a jury in British history.
Aspinall [ed. note, his 18 year old son James died at Hillsborough] announced in February that this service would be the last to be held at Anfield, because the new inquests will be concluded this year. After the speeches and prayers by local clergy, family members released white doves from the Anfield pitch, in memory of the 96 people who died. Finally, the 22,000 people in attendance hoisted scarves aloft, and sang the Liverpool football club anthem, You’ll Never Walk Alone, in memory and tribute to the 96 people who went to watch their team 27 years ago, and never came home.
Here is an ESPNFC item about the Hillsborough remembrance.
Back to Bournemouth ...
73' Not much happening. Bouremouth has had more possession and threats as LFC tried to run out the clock. Toure has left the game with what appears to be a hamstring injury. Sakho has entered in his place.
75' Origi in for Firmino.
78' Lallana in for Ibe.
81' What a save by Ward!
92' Corner nearly scores for Bournemouth.
93' Bouremouth scores! 1-2.
94' Almost an equalizer for Bournemouth just over the net.
Final score 1-2. A vital road win for LFC's hope to move of up the table. In looking at the highlights, the two goals were terrific. Firmino got a goal off a rebound off a Sturridge back heel that he put on goal. Sturridge got a goal off a header. Sturridge hit the post on two great chances and could have had a hat trick. Team got a little shaky late as Bournemouth were pressing for goals and LFC just wanted to run the clock out.
