VIDEO: Nina Kauser Show - Have Liverpool Turned A Corner?

The Nina Kauser show on YouTube is back! For my fifth Anfield Index TV show I decided to discuss whether Liverpool are out of their poor run of form in the Premier League that has seen a draw away to Sunderland, a draw against Manchester United, a loss to Swansea, a draw to Chelsea and a loss to Hull City so far in 2017! It's always easier after a win and after that performance of such quality from Liverpool and I received a …
Henderson Saying The Right Things

Henderson Saying The Right Things

There has always been a tradition around Anfield and environs of club leaders saying the right thing at the right time. You can trace it back to that most articulate and circumspect of gents, Bill Shankly. The Scot was famously loquacious but there was never a word out of place. Every phrase was measured before being delivered in that wistful but authoritative Glenbuck burr. In a time before media saturation, the man who started the most glorious era in the …
No time for panic – Klopp's playing the long game

No time for panic – Klopp's playing the long game

There’s no doubt that we’ve had one of the worst starts to a calendar year since, well I’d rather not look into it, to be honest. We’ve had enough dark moments the past few weeks without adding stats to the feeling of doom permeating the club and practically every Kop forum and Facebook group out there. In fact, there have even been calls for FSG to sell up or send Klopp on his merry way, P45 in hand. But rather …
Both Wijnaldum and Can Have Roles to Play This Season

Both Wijnaldum and Can Have Roles to Play This Season

Farewell then, Tottenham Hotspur. They came, they saw, they met a frosty-faced Senegalese who wanted a word. Despite a dislike of them which has survived decades and has no basis – though maybe it had something to do with Glenn Hoddle’s louche hair and tight shorts – I do find them fascinating. In the 90s they took many a ropey midfielder off our hands just as they slowed down (Redknapp, Murphy, Leonhardsen) so I’m grateful for that, but they’ve always …
Wijnaldum: Klopp Believes In Us

Wijnaldum: Klopp Believes In Us

"Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime." Rupert Pupkin, King of Comedy
In Martin Scorsese's King of Comedy, the central protagonist, the splendidly monikered Rupert Pupkin, is a quietly unhinged man with delusions of grandeur and dreams of celebrity status. Pupkin, whose dark psychopathology eventually sees him resorting to kidnap and extortion, is fuelled by the kind of impervious self-belief that others find ludicrous. The film is an unsettling masterpiece and its prescience about the …
Lallana: We Need To Be More Consistent

Lallana: We Need To Be More Consistent

For the entirety of January and the beginning of February, weekends have been a matter of endurance for Liverpool fans. For this scribbler, the only means of escaping the crippling ennui that seemed to grow with each pathetic result was to indulge a lifelong passion for film that rivals my ardour for the Reds. Ironically, getting lost in a fiction comes easily to us as football fans. So much of fandom is the creating of potential narratives, investing in characters and obsessing …
Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Up until Saturday, 2017 had been awful as a Liverpool supporter. Our pre-Christmas spring in the step was long gone, everything felt like a chore, and like Popeye without his spinach, you were left desperately hoping the Reds would give us a much-needed adrenalin shot. Why did we ever doubt them, though? There has been so much negativity surrounding the club this year , some of it warranted and some of it embarrassingly hyperbolic, but Saturday's fantastic 2-0 win over …
Observations from Liverpool's win against Spurs

Observations from Liverpool's win against Spurs

So that's what it feels like. A win in the league. The first three points since New Year's Eve when Pep Guardiola's Manchester City got the full Jurgen Klopp treatment. Truth be told it's the first time we've looked like a Klopp side since the turn of the year. The performance against Spurs had everything we'd become accustomed to as Liverpool fans earlier on in the season; hunger, desire, passion, confidence and a bit of swagger thrown in for good …
Liverpool 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0: Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0: Player Ratings

Liverpool rose from their prolonged slumber to show glimpses of the form which made them so mesmerizing in the early part of the season. Liverpool were the hungrier team tonight and walked away with the points. What a difference a week's break makes, the first for Liverpool since December. This is how the Reds fared. Simon Mignolet (7) - Had a comfortable night in goal. Made a big save in the first half but was pretty much untroubled thereafter. Spurs …
Can Clyne And The Reds Get Back On Track?

Can Clyne And The Reds Get Back On Track?

If you've ever struggled to break a pattern of behaviour, then you'll know how difficult the psychological aspect of that battle is. There's a whole pageant that seems to play out around the drawing of lines in the sand. Just one more chocolate bar and THEN the salad diet will commence, just a final bottle of beer and THEN productive sobriety will follow, just one more tweet and THEN some interaction with actual humans in the room. Of course, the …
