FSG: The Next Seven Years

Liverpool’s complex relationship with their owners closed another chapter as the calendar turned to September. Despite the Transfer Window ending in relative disappointment, the club made several astute deals again this summer on the acquisitions they did complete as well as on selling end.  The problem for most supporters is that they didn’t make enough deals on the incoming side to satisfy the entire fanbase.  The Reds do so well in fact on the selling side that it often hurts their cause from …

Your every move is scrutinised, both on and off the pitch, and if you don’t hit the ground running, it doesn’t take too long for the rumblings of discontent to start. Liverpool have had many players to have suffered in this respect down the years, many of whom never …

It's time for Emre Can to start dominating football matches

Putting contract issues aside, this season will be a decisive one for Emre Can. Whether he is to have a long term future at Anfield is still unknown but what is clear is that the injury suffered to Adam Lallana which is due to keep him out for at least two months and the ongoing problems with Phil Coutinho means the German powerhouse has a great opportunity to stamp his authority on this team. Despite questions still remaining as to …
A Tale of Two Day Trippers

A Tale of Two Day Trippers

At a club as big as Liverpool, fans are bound to come from places all around the world. Tickets become harder to acquire and more expensive. The team leaves for places like China or America during preseason tours, signing autographs for fans, visiting the sights, and making players available to all kinds of media.

Liverpool and the Safe Standing Debate: Safety First

Liverpool and the Safe Standing Debate: Safety First

Last week the newly elected Metro mayor of Liverpool, Steve Rotherham, expressed an interest in a safe standing section at Anfield. If accepted it would put the club on a par with other clubs around the continent. People will always mention Borussia Dortmund and point to the noise that their standing section creates but it’s also been introduced closer to home, noticeably at Parkhead, home of Celtic. Of course, ours is the one club where the debate takes a more …
