In a shock development today ahead of the start of the new Premier League season, a Liverpool supporter has confirmed that 2018/2019 is going to be their year.

Shortly after Kop season ticket holder Raymond Fowler-Hyypia made the announcement on his Facebook page at 2.14pm on Wednesday, a media frenzy ensued with sports journalists and pundits from all over the world chasing Raymond for more information.

Speaking EXCLUSIVELY to Southend News Network, he said, ‘It’s true! This year is our year.’

‘I’ve done the maths, checked the form guides, and then correlated all of this information with the timetable for the Mersey Ferry – everyone else might as well just give up now.’

‘Besides, surely the £24bn that Klopp has invested in players has to pay off at some point.’

However, it hasn’t been a good day for all football fans, with West Ham supporters taking to the streets around the London Stadium today.

Around 2000 of them marched to demand the resignation of manager Manuel San Pellegrino over the club’s current position in the relegation zone.
