Liverpool Press On Despite Distractions

Liverpool Press On Despite Distractions

Distractions are something no manager ever wants to deal with. The narrative for so many seasons gone awry at Liverpool or anywhere in sport usually surrounds a player dispute or an underlying negative that eventually pulled the whole team down. Back in 2015, around this time of year, reality started to set in that the Suarez replacements weren’t going to pull their weight, Champions League places were going to be a one-off and it seemed any little bit of bad …
Mystery Liverpool FC Target Narrowed By Northcroft

Mystery Liverpool FC Target Narrowed By Northcroft

After the untimely departure of Philippe Coutinho, Liverpool supporters are understandably anxious to pin their hopes to a replacement. The names that are repeatedly thrown out there are Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez and Monaco’s Thomas Lemar. However, reports have varied from tales of deals nearly done to outright dismissals of the links altogether. Two recent journalist interviews have created a serious buzz amongst LFC supporters and may move the media microscope to an entirely different group of players. The Telegraph’s Jason …
Liverpool's Future Pinned To Twin Fullbacks

Liverpool's Future Pinned To Twin Fullbacks

The Premier League’s top six clubs dream about having English talents good enough to bring all the way through from their academy systems and into the first team.  Liverpool are fortunate to have one of these rising stars in 19-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold.  Blessed with speed, intelligence, a powerful shot and outstanding passing range, Alexander-Arnold is not only one of the jewels of the academy, he’s a local lad. Just one problem...  His favoured position is currently occupied by another English …
Van Dijk Makes LFC Unlikely Action Hero

Van Dijk Makes LFC Unlikely Action Hero

Why do we watch Liam Neeson action movies? On the surface, it doesn't make much sense. He's not exactly Jason Statham or Dwayne Johnson, but after wrestling a few wolves and using his particular set of skills he's somehow an action movie guy. Liverpool supporters have been telling anyone who would listen that The Reds are one of the top clubs in the world. One minor problem; the club couldn't attract or retain top players. Their targets would slip through …
Liverpool's 'Rotating' Problem

Liverpool's 'Rotating' Problem

A lot of clubs have a rotation problem, balancing the heavy requirements of the winter schedule can be daunting, but Liverpool... they're different. For once Liverpool have a deep enough squad that rotation is not an issue at all, but the Reds do have a rotating problem. The focus of supporter ire changes from match to match depending on the latest performance. Like a game of roulette played in the seventh level of hell, Liverpool players take turns sending their …
Don't Call Liverpool FC A Selling Club

Don't Call Liverpool FC A Selling Club

Aidy Ward. At one time the name was enough to put Liverpool supporters into a cold sweat. That was remedied somewhat when he brought us Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal...  But prior to that he was considered the slimiest of all of the snakes in the reptile genus for facilitating Raheem Sterling’s move to Manchester City. That dark period was 2 years and 5 months ago; the last time any Liverpool player of significance to the club was sold.  Mr. Ward was …
Liverpool's Priority Transfers For January

Liverpool's Priority Transfers For January

Now that Liverpool have emphatically topped their Champions League group with a 7-0 demolition of Spartak the club's needs for the January window have become much more clear. We polled a few Anfield Index contributors, asking them what their two priority transfers would be for the January window to set Liverpool up to add to the trophy case at Melwood in this season and beyond. One large Dutchman was a popular pick, but who would you prioritize in the winter …
Red Reset: FA Cup Key to Liverpool Expectations

Red Reset: FA Cup Key to Liverpool Expectations

With six wins and two draws by a combined score of 25-6, Liverpool supporters can safely close the chapter on a poor run of form that ran through late September and October. Fervent Firmino fans have joined satisfied Salah supporters in whipping out all of the stats and rubbing it in the face of anyone that ever doubted the two Liverpool forwards who did sputter at times early on. What is true is that Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah have …
Have Liverpool Learned How To Close?

Have Liverpool Learned How To Close?

With an 83rd minute Suarez-esque strike that left Stoke’s centre-backs with heads in hands, Mo Salah broke through yet another barrier for Liverpool. This mark though might have gone unnoticed amongst the Egyptian’s long list of accolades. More than one-third of the way into the season, the Reds have tallied 28 goals, third most in the league, but only this latest among them came in the last 10 minutes of any match. In comparison, former Red, Raheem Sterling already has …
Liverpool Life Lessons and Drunken Expectations

Liverpool Life Lessons and Drunken Expectations

On a different continent in what seems like a different lifetime now I was a frat guy at an American university. We drank a lot. Nothing remarkable about that, but one particular day those of us new to the fraternity decided we would show the older guys how frat we were and went after it. At some point I stepped outside to relieve myself and realised that I couldn't stand anymore without the assistance of a nearby fencepost. Two of …
