Liverpool fans watched their team lift the Champions League less than two and a half months ago.

Currently they are top of the Premier League with a 100% record this season and have already won the Super cup against Chelsea.

Add in a run of 43 Premier League games with only one defeat (away to Man City) and everything in their world must be great for Liverpool fans…?

Not totally.

Saturday sees protests planned for Anfield but for once it will be Newcastle fans watching on.

The supporters group Spirit of Shankly have called for Liverpool fans to support local traders with an ‘Independents Day’ this Saturday.

This follows the club’s owners trying to trademark ‘Liverpool’, which hasn’t gone too well with many supporters.

The club have said that they are applying to register ‘Liverpool’ as a trademark ‘but only in the context of football products and services’…

Whilst from the outside it looks like owners FSG have done an excellent job, particularly with results on the pitch and employing Jurgen Klopp, there has been previous unhappiness from many Liverpool fans with previous moves by the club’s owners.

With the redevelopment of Anfield, FSG had tried to implement massive ticket price rises but after a fan backlash, they decided to back down and go with more moderate increases.

As for Saturday, Spirit of Shankly have called on the Liverpool fans to support local traders by not wearing official merchandise to the match.
