  • Same goes for "present"
done NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
the guideline doesn't state its necessary, seeing as the link is opposite anyway, I don't see a need for it. NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Check for your consistency with numbers, in one you say "fifth" and in another you say "18th", please check and fix per WP:MOSNUM
  • "The team improved under Evans" change to "The team improved when Evans was the team's manager" for prose
added stewardship. NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "At the start of the 2010–11 season Liverpool" missing comma after "season"
done NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "Liverpool started the season" which season? It isn't noted before in this section.
done NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "At the start of the 1986–87 season it" missing comma after "season"
done NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "but they were" change to "but were" for prose
I think it reads better this way NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "At the end of the season Dalglish" missing comma again, please check
I don't think a comma is needed there, sentence reads fine to me without one NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "he only won three of" remove "only" per WP:NPOV
done NapHit (talk) 00:03, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "the Kop" isn't real name "Spion Kop", as done in image caption, note there please
done NapHit (talk) 00:03, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "by Union of European Football Associations (UEFA)" usually meets WP:ACRO, but in this case, hasn't "UEFA" already been mentioned firstly above, and therefore after should be referred by the short name, in this case, "UEFA". If not, only the actual name should linked, without the bracket short name
its only mentioned along with the Champions League in the lead so I think its fine NapHit (talk) 00:03, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "£8.5" it is the UK pound obviously, but should be noted anyway as the pound, if some don't know
the use of the pound symbol should signify its the pound, no need for other stuff. NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
done NapHit (talk) 00:03, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
  • "British Broadcasting Corporation" should not be spelled out fully per WP:ACRO guideline
As there is currently a banner stating the section that refers to the guideline you mentioned, is under dispute, I'm going to leave this. Also, I really don't have the time to go through every reference and change it to BBC. NapHit (talk) 00:03, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Some references are missing parameters, like ref. 50, it is missing accessdate, and they could be more, like authors, etc., please check all. It was only that one I think though.
done i think NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Why is the location parameter only used for some The Guardian sources? Should be used with all news sources, including this one, all per WP:CITE
think i've got them NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Any external links?
nope NapHit (talk) 00:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Overall; very good job. Once the above issues are addressed, I will pass the article based on the good article criteria. Well done! TBrandley 05:51, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for taking the time to review this TBrandley. I'm currently in Australia without permanent acess to a computer, but I'll try and fix these issues over the coming days. NapHit (talk) 06:20, 23 November 2012 (UTC)
No problem! I will pass the article based on your changes. TBrandley 04:18, 25 November 2012 (UTC)
