Liverpool FC: A Championship-Caliber Team or Not?

Posted on 2 Sep, 2014, by in Soccer

There’s no magic formula to winning championships. It’s never just about having a defense that rarely conceded and keeps clean sheets. It’s never just about scoring enough that no matter how bad your defense is, teams will never catch up to you. Each season brings a different set of stories, intangibles and deciding factors.
