Win!

Win!

Though I know I'll never lose affection For people and things that went before I know I'll often stop and think about them In my life, I love you more Allow me to explain if you will. You’ll need coffee. Tissues optional. Heart necessary. Fortitude compulsory. If 2011 was the season that started me, this season could so simply have been the one that finished me. Back then, so many years ago, I became a father for the first time. …
Liverpool's European Hangover - Statistical Analysis

Liverpool's European Hangover - Statistical Analysis

The Reds are marching on Kiev! What a week, what an achievement! Jurgen Klopp managed to reach his second European final with Liverpool in his second European campaign. Hopefully this time he takes the team a step further than the last time around. The German is yet to lose at Anfield in Europe - a truly remarkable run. With all the excitement surrounding our success in the Champions League, it's easy to dismiss the lack of such domestically. Ahead of …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - The Perfect Klopp Midfielder

As a raw teenager at Southampton in the 2010-11 season, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain carved out a reputation as one of the hottest prospects in English football. A clamour for his signature ensued in the Summer of 2011, and it was Arsenal who staved off interest from a number of suiters by completing the signing of the exciting teenager. At the time, Arsenal had a strong reputation for developing young talent. So it was understandable that the youngster chose to ply his …
The Bottom-13: Liverpool Have Conquered Their Achilles Heel

The Bottom-13: Liverpool Have Conquered Their Achilles Heel

I went for a drink with a good friend last week - A Man United fan, unfortunately - and as usual, we spent a vast chunk of our time talking about football. The usual discussion about how the top-four will end up looking cropped up, and after making our predictions - it will be Chelsea and Arsenal who miss out, in case you're wondering - my mate declared, “Liverpool would be a shoo-in if they could just find consistency against …
Liverpool FC: A lack of winners

Liverpool FC: A lack of winners

In February 2007 I met the woman who would go on to become my wife. Very quickly she was introduced to my obsession with football, and Liverpool Football Club in particular. Thankfully for me, she got onboard with this obsession almost from the off and has gone on to become a Liverpool supporter in her own right. During our time together she’s been a regular matchday companion for me at Anfield and even gone to the match without me on …
Daniel Sturridge, Thank You & Good Luck

Daniel Sturridge, Thank You & Good Luck

It's been a tough time of late for Daniel Sturridge, in and out of the side over the past few seasons because of injuries, and a change of system; but any time Sturridge was in the side, or came off the bench, there was always a glimmer of hope for Liverpool when in a sticky patch. As one of the most clinical and predatory strikers ever seen at Anfield, fans knew, all it took was one chance, and Sturridge would …
Philippe Coutinho: Good Riddance

Philippe Coutinho: Good Riddance

The 4-3 victory over Manchester City provided the Liverpool fanbase with a great deal of relief following the departure of Philippe Coutinho for £142 million only a few days prior. And to me, that was the end of the matter. Cheers for those stunning goals, it was a delight seeing a young Brazilian talent, once written off, develop into something special. But another transfer story in recent days - that of Alexis Sanchez, from Arsenal to Manchester United - was …
Liverpool FC: A Guide to Being a Supporter

Liverpool FC: A Guide to Being a Supporter

I start this piece knowing full well I am standing against the strongest of currents. Here I am, in my privileged position, as a writer and as someone who is fortunate enough to go to Liverpool and watch my team play, dictating how to support my/your/our team, Liverpool Football Club. It's a strange position to find myself in, and I feel we must at least explain how we have got to this point, where it's harder to discern between fellow …
Liverpool 2017-18 - A Half Term Report

Liverpool 2017-18 - A Half Term Report

As 2017 comes to its creaking and inevitable end, perhaps it’s time to take stock and look at the state of our Red nation - to make a brief assessment of where we are; to ‘take our temperature’ as Leo McGarry says in the West Wing. The last month has provided a perfect cross section of where Liverpool are and, possibly, where we are headed. The seven games in 24 days (which, in itself, is nuts) has included the massacres …
Liverpool's Goalkeepers - A Statistical Analysis

Liverpool's Goalkeepers - A Statistical Analysis

You probably won't believe me but I had the idea for this article way before the Arsenal game. I had even started gathering the stats from the different sites before the game started. The article was due last Thursday but I decided to postpone it for this week so I get a sample size that is a little bigger. And then Simon Mignolet allows a goal that he could have realistically saved with a header - the ball was that …
