The Running Man - Adam Lallana

The Running Man - Adam Lallana

While fatigue will certainly have taken its toll on several Premier League teams during the gruelling Christmas fixtures, one man seems completely unaffected by it all...one Adam Lallana. The England international covered a total of 13.22km in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland, recording 12.88km in the win against Manchester City just two days before. Both distances were the highest ran by any Liverpool player in the Premier League during the Bank Holiday weekend. Despite struggling under Brendan Rodgers’ tutelage, Adam …
Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Perspective is often the rarest of commodities in football. Swept up in the bustling action of the season, results are often what matter the most. The mood of a fanbase is determined by the way their team is playing, and more importantly, whether or not they won their last three games. Winning three in a row; now that’s grounds for celebration. Losing three in a row, and the mood will be one of despair. Anything in between – and it’s …
9th to 2nd at Christmas: What a Difference a Year Makes

9th to 2nd at Christmas: What a Difference a Year Makes

Twelve months ago, Liverpool were sitting ninth in the Premier League table with just twenty-four points from the first seventeen games. Jurgen Klopp had been in charge for just two months, and hadn't really had the effect that we all hoped. In fact his record was worse than his predecessor Brendan Rodgers, averaging just 1.33 points per game in his first nine league games compared to 1.5 for Rodgers in his last eight. Going into Christmas, we had scored just …
Liverpool's Late Winners

Liverpool's Late Winners

Learning to Love the Fat Lady’s Tune When Sadio Mané reacted fastest to the rebound, breaking Everton hearts on Monday night, he unleashed the most primal act in all of us. If you weren’t at Goodison, then, like me, you were up off the couch, fists clenched with the most guttural of roars leaving your throat. Relief, coupled with mild disbelief, takes over. You watch the players celebrate, dreading the linesman’s flag, then you hear Mike Dean’s whistle during the …
Jordan Henderson - The Best Is Yet To Come

Jordan Henderson - The Best Is Yet To Come

There's a saying that springs to mind when I think of Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson - that is fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. For a lot of fans my use of this analogy when I talk about Henderson may be a small bit confusing. Well let me explain. When Henderson came to Liverpool in the summer of 2011, I like many other Liverpool fans were of the opinion, that Henderson simply wasn't good enough to …
Keepers and Context | Bournemouth 4 Liverpool 3

Keepers and Context | Bournemouth 4 Liverpool 3

Many years ago a fanzine editor gave me a piece of advice that I will take to my grave. Whereas he had to write copy for a newspaper shortly after the final-whistle while the blood was up, I had a few days grace to compose myself and write with the luxury of time. He said to me - ‘Never write angry. Always sleep on it. Let it sink in.’ Hence, I’m going to be asking you to calm down about …
Liverpool 2016/17 v Liverpool 2013/14: Only One Winner

Liverpool 2016/17 v Liverpool 2013/14: Only One Winner

Back in the summer, who really expected to be this happy about Liverpool by the time early November arrived? Come on, be honest. We all saw that daunting run of early fixtures, and when the joy of beating Arsenal was soured by the woeful result at Burnley, even a top-four challenge felt a long way off. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds have been a revelation since their Turf Moor woes, though, going unbeaten in all competitions and topping the Premier League in …
What Does Michael Edwards' Promotion mean for Liverpool FC?

What Does Michael Edwards' Promotion mean for Liverpool FC?

Just over a year ago, not long after Brendan Rodgers was sacked, the Daily Mail published an article hatchet job depicting Liverpool FC's head of performance analysis Michael Edwards as a kiss-arse who basically set Rodgers up to fail. There was mention of a cosy relationship between Edwards and the owners and how they'd regularly share emails throughout the day. I mean, how dare an employee share videos of cats with his boss.. Eddie, as he liked the staff at Melwood …
Coutinho & Firmino: Majestic Brazilians Bringing The Good Times Back

Coutinho & Firmino: Majestic Brazilians Bringing The Good Times Back

There was a time during the Roy Hodgson era when the thought of Liverpool having two dazzling Brazilians in their ranks felt little more than a pipe dream. Any flair that once existed at the club had ebbed away. We were having to put up with a years-past-his-peak Joe Cole, the dullest footballer in history in Christian Poulsen, and Milan Jovanovic, who I’m still convinced was someone pretending to be a professional footballer. Brendan Rodgers takes plenty of stick for …
Why we owe Steven Gerrard his return

Why we owe Steven Gerrard his return

Liverpool legend deserves a return to Anfield despite mixed opinions. Sunken to his knees, staring into the abyss of Selhurst Park, Steven Gerrard knew it was over. His dream of lifting the Premier League title with Liverpool, had disappeared faster than he fell to allow Demba Ba THAT goal the previous week. “Devastation” was the word Gerrard used to describe how he felt on the final day, with regards to the outcome of the season. There was neither optimism for the …
