Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

The wheels of Liverpool’s busy summer have already begun spinning. Even as they head to a Champions League final, rumours have been rife regarding those who will arrive in the summer: The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Michael Edwards has been tasked with finding a centre-half partner for Liverpool’s perceived most important signing in recent memory, Virgil van Dijk. The first two names out of the block share a nationality, and were both unfortunate to not make Gareth Southgate’s twenty-three-man …
Being a Liverpool Supporter - The Anxiety is Real

Being a Liverpool Supporter - The Anxiety is Real

It's been 6 years since Liverpool last won a trophy, the League Cup under Kenny Dalglish in the 2011-12 season. And the previous trophy to that was the FA Cup in 2006. And it feels like approximately 408 years since we last won the league. So it's fair to say that Liverpool fans have been through some tough seasons in recent times. Unfortunately, this has led to some serious negativity amongst the fanbase. There is no doubt that success breeds …
Liverpool v Manchester City Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Manchester City Preview - Key Battles

After what seems like forever, Liverpool have had a whole week between two games, and the break couldn't have come at a better time than in the lead-up to a game against Manchester City, who have made a mockery of the Premier League this season. City have only dropped points twice this season but come into this game having not won at Anfield since 2003. For Jurgen Klopp's Reds, it has been an eventful week with a dream Virgil van …
How Ragnar Klavan has become Liverpool’s new cult hero

How Ragnar Klavan has become Liverpool’s new cult hero

Who else thinks Ragnar Klavan’s last-minute winner at Burnley has made it into their favourite 10 Reds goals of all time? That may be both short-termist and an overreaction, but there was something special about it. It was a goal that leaves you on top of the world for hours afterwards, feeling invincible. I could have knocked out Mike Tyson between approximately 4:50pm and 10pm, or cruised to victory over Mo Farah in the 10,000 metres. There were probably a …

A Different Kind Of Win At

A Different Kind Of Win At "Tough" Moor - Burnley 1 Liverpool 2

You can keep your 7-0s. That was my type of game. Don’t get me wrong, I love a pasting, particularly if it looks on the cards from the outset. I was at the famous 9-0 game against Crystal Palace in 1989 and though it was ‘only’ 3-0 at halftime there was a sense that this side were there for a merciless beating. The whole ground knew that Palace would want to get off the pitch as soon as possible such …

Observations as Liverpool Edge Past Burnley in a Last Minute Thriller

Liverpool and Burnley woke up from their first-half slumber to produce a thrilling second half, and it was The Reds who walked away with all of the points scoring as late a goal as any thrillseeking supporter could hope for. The key observations from the game below: That First Half Watching Paint Dry. Reading yesterday's newspaper. Washing an already ironed shirt. The first half.

Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

It's been a tough few weeks of late, with Liverpool dropping points against Newcastle, Burnley, Spartak Moscow and Sevilla whilst also getting knocked out of the League Cup by Leicester. Some fans have even started to turn on the manager. It's strange, Liverpool are only seven games into the league season and people are already writing off their chances of Champions League qualification, the season entirely, and subsequently there's talk of a club in crisis. Yet the table does not …

Liverpool FC's Bore Draws Or Are They Good, Solid Draws?

This may be deemed a controversial comment. This may be considered the ramblings of a dim-witted man. You may disagree with the following statement wholeheartedly.
