Liverpool fans have suffered this season. We’ve watched helplessly from our sofas as the Reds dropped like flies, we watched through our fingers as the title defence was derailed by injuries. However, we have been able to celebrate Liverpool giving Nat Phillips a chance and the lad turning out to be brilliant. Finally Nat Phillips has a Liverpool song and it’s boss.
Bolton Baresi rise
Last summer Liverpool sold Dejan Lovren and decided not to replace him.
Virgil van Dijk had been an ever present since joining the Reds, we had faith in his fitness.
Nobody could’ve anticipated Jordan Pickford’s MMA tackle on the Dutchman in the Merseyside Derby.
Big Virg was ruled out for the season in October and everybody else who could play centre back soon went the same way.
Nat Phillips was called up having failed to secure a move away before the season started.
Astonishingly, he earned the tag ‘the Bolton Baresi’ for his standout performances.
He ended the season a cult hero with 15 starts and two substitute appearances in the league, earning a 7.29 WhoScored rating.
Nat Phillips Liverpool song
As we do with all of our adored, Nat Phillips finally has a Liverpool song.
Fans were videoed over the weekend singing ‘Nat Phillips in the air’ to the tune of John Paul Young’s 1978 classic Love Is In The Air.
What RTK has to say
We hope he gets the chance to hear this in a fully packed Anfield.
The defender’s courage and determination in the air has made him a cult hero.
He’s been there for us when we needed him most this season, fingers crossed he sticks around a while longer.
