"We want to have footprints in every continent in the next three years," Steve Turner, the head of Liverpool FC International Football Academy, said after signing a contract to set up the academy in Delhi.

The club also plan similar ventures in China, South America and the US.

The former Liverpool midfielder Steve McMahon will be head coach of the Indian academy.
In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

Im just surprised these countries dont have academys long before now.We seem to be playing catch up with United across the globe.

I expect a tour of America soon too. United seem to be maximising their brand over there in recent years as well as many other PL clubs.

Surely we will have a game at Fenway soon, Liverpool Barca whets the appetite.

yes, we always seem to be playing catch-up.

given our fanbase, we should always be running neck and neck with United, in asia and america.

Previous success brought complacency and apathy from previous boards.
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

tho I have enormous respect for David Moores, we did rest on our laurels during his era.

What he had as a fan and a decent person, he more than lacked in any sense of business acumen. I guess he missed out on his Uncle's genes in that respect.

I always associate his era as one of melancholy, reflection, and sadness.

we got stuck at one point in time.
