My Late Father and Liverpool

My Late Father and Liverpool

Being a Liverpool fan, I’ve fallen out of love with the game more times than I can count. Between marginally losing the league in 2008/09, and again in 2013/14, to seeing some of the icons I grew up supporting and adoring leaving the club one-by-one – who could blame me, right? This time, however, it was at a whole new level. In early May, my Dad suffered a heart attack which effectively took him away from this world, my world, …

Liverpool's Premier League Lineups - A Stats Analysis: Part 1

The Premier League season is over. Man City dominated the season like no club has done in recent (and not so recent) times. For Liverpool, the campaign was relatively successful with the team managing to qualify for the Champions League for the second straight time - something that hasn't happened since a certain Spaniard was at the helm of the club. The Reds conceded fewer than 40 goals for the first since 2010. And Mo Salah won every possible award …

Liverpool FC Follows the Spirit of the Age

In all likelihood, there probably aren’t many people who doubt that electronic sports will play a crucial part in the development of the modern entertainment industry. It will probably influence other sectors as well. While it is too soon to tell what the future of sports will look like, there is no reason why traditional disciplines couldn’t take advantage of new trends and sentiments. Above all, expansion projects based on the concept of electronic sports might be the chance for …

Scouting Fabinho: Liverpool's New Anchor

Monday Night – UK time: Liverpool fans still reel from their Champions League final loss, yet they are motivated in their club’s resolve to use it as the platform for progress; a bump on the road to something special. Nobody quite knew just how quickly the Reds would get moving on that road, though. As photos emerged of their shiny new Brazilian midfielder, standing clad in that famous Red kit, every Liverpool fan in the world probably had the same …
Fabinho Done - Faster Than A Speeding Edwards

Fabinho Done - Faster Than A Speeding Edwards

It’s two days after the Champions League final and the dissection of the game has barely even ended. The discussion, as these discussions are wont to do, turns to the state of Liverpool’s squad after what has been a very exciting but ultimately unsuccessful season – at least in terms of silverware. As heated debates between like-minded but disagreeing individuals tend to do, the discussion zeroed in on the issue of defensive midfield. On and on and on we discussed. …
The Forgotten Talking Points | From The Champions League Final

The Forgotten Talking Points | From The Champions League Final

I've waited a good 36 hours since the full-time whistle to write this - in part to compose my own thoughts and in part to have time to listen to the reactions of the players, pundits and supporters. While the Reds' journey to Kiev ended in abject misery, the road there was glorious. I'm pleased at how many supporters have chosen to focus on the pride we can feel in our club and the progress we've made this season to …
So, you want to sell Loris Karius?

So, you want to sell Loris Karius?

There are two major reactions from Saturday night’s painful Champions League final loss to Real Madrid. 1 - Ramos’ da sells Avon 2 - Everything else is Karius’ fault Liverpool can’t do anything about the former, but the latter they are in full control of. If decisions were made via Twitter poll, Loris Karius would be gone, bagged, tagged and sold to the highest bidder by end of day on Sunday. Let’s say that you got your wish. Karius is …
Reds can hold heads high after Kiev defeat

Reds can hold heads high after Kiev defeat

So the final that we all looked forward to with bated breath didn't quite turn out as hoped. But there was no shame in losing to Madrid in the manner we did. Even in defeat, the signs were there that this team is already hitting new levels. After a brave start to the game where we looked to take the game to Madrid in a controlled and composed manner, Madrid struck the first blow. In his usual cynical manner, Sergio …
Player Ratings as Kiev proves one step too far for Liverpool

Player Ratings as Kiev proves one step too far for Liverpool

We'll always have the memories of this campaign, even if we haven't got the trophy. The travels, the songs, the goals. There will be greater words filled with more sorrow and dejection than that written in the days and weeks to come, but they're my sentiments to you Reds this evening. Here are the ratings from Real Madrid 3-1 Liverpool. Nobody will feel worse than Karius Loris Karius (3): You've got to feel for the lad, regardless of your personal thoughts …
Nearly (First) Mission Accomplished for Jurgen Klopp

Nearly (First) Mission Accomplished for Jurgen Klopp

Jurgen Klopp’s self-ascribed objective of transforming Liverpool’s fan-base from “doubters to believers” has proven one of the most oft-repeated quotes in a regime marked by memorable soundbites. It was never going to be an easy task, and even as he led his side to consecutive top-four finishes (no mean feat given the unprecedented strength of the so-called ‘big six’) and developed a scintillating brand of attacking football, the doubters continued to question his every move, falling conspicuously silent during a …
