Liverpool fans have had a rough go of it lately and we here at NBC Sports want to brighten things up for you guys, spark some memories of the good old days when Luis Suarez didn’t constantly hamstring you with his ridiculous shenanigans.
So let’s focus on things like how the Reds remain one of the most storied clubs in English football and how the 2005 Champions League victory over AC Milan was quite possibly the greatest match ever played.
That’s right, ever.
Luis Suarez or not, this season is shaping up to look we may well see the resurgence of Liverpool. With players like Philipe Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge, Iago Aspas, Fabio Borini, Luis Alberto the Reds might just have all the firepower they need to get back into that coveted Top 4.
So in light of pumping Kopites up a bit NBC Sports has put together this video. Give it a watch and don’t forget that you can watch the Reds and all of the Premier League’s top contenders live on NBC Sports Network and the NBC Sports Group.

After failing to qualify for the playoffs in each of their first eight seasons, 2015 saw the Reds venture into the postseason for the first time ever, only to be thumped in the knockout round, 3-0, by their 401 derby rival Montreal Impact, of all sides.
This is the year, though, or so we’ve said and been told all season long. While it remains to be seen how deep of a run TFC can muster in 2016, they’ll always have the Jozy Altidore‘s terrible first touch; Altidore’s wayward second and third touches; Altidore’s overhead cross; and Sebastian Giovinco’s strike, all of which you can watch in all its hilarity glory below.
