Patience - the key to success for Liverpool

Patience - the key to success for Liverpool

We live in fast times - a lot of things nowadays happen instantly. People have gotten used to that so much that it is easy to lose sight of the bigger picture and over react to some events. In the world of football every time a team doesn't win, it's a catastrophe - have a bad month and there will be fractions of fans calling for the manager to get sacked. If a 22 year old player is inconsistent and …
Title Obsession Is Clouding Liverpool Supporters’ Judgement Of 2016/17

Title Obsession Is Clouding Liverpool Supporters’ Judgement Of 2016/17

Few sets of supporters crave something as much as Liverpool fans crave a league title. It really is a drug.  For 27 years, we have waited and waited for the curse to end, but unlike most footballing records, this one seems destined to last forever.  We have had to watch Man United dominate the English game for two decades, while Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City have also notched up nine league titles between them. Even Blackburn and Leicester have had …
Fried Dutch Eggs - English Media Created Klopp's Nemesis

Fried Dutch Eggs - English Media Created Klopp's Nemesis

We’ve been through a difficult patch. Liverpool squandered the momentum of late December with a string of lacklustre performances against substantially lesser sides, and we found ourselves teetering on the edge of the Champion’s League spots and crashing out of both the FA and League Cups. A byproduct of this disappointing run is the first inkling of an anti-Klopp sentiment by a very small but very loud section of the bizarre world known as LFC twitter. Klopp, of course, is …
Why This Summer Is Genuinely Liverpool's Biggest In Recent Memory

Why This Summer Is Genuinely Liverpool's Biggest In Recent Memory

I know that some of you will have read that headline, tutted to yourself and thought, “we say that every year”. You’re right, to be fair. Every summer that comes along, we tell ourselves that this is the one that will see Liverpool reach the next level. The one that will finally end the wait for that elusive Premier League title. We said it in 2002, 2009 and 2014, following the Reds’ best attempts at lifting the trophy since its …
How Gerrard Made Me a Liverpool Fan

How Gerrard Made Me a Liverpool Fan

This article is going to be a lot different than what I normally write up or tweet. It’s not going to be an analysis, it’s not going to be a tactical discussion, it’s not going to be a player profile, and it’s not going to be an opinionated piece that gets people to churn their thoughts. In light of Steven Gerrard’s retirement from football as a professional player, I felt it was only right to honour the incredible journey of …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
What Ruben Neves would bring to Liverpool

What Ruben Neves would bring to Liverpool

The link to Ruben Neves is a strange one. It's not out of the ordinary to see a player of his profile being linked with a move to Liverpool in the media. He's young, talented and has a huge resale value if he lives up to his potential. He ticks the boxes. It's that formula, the basic profile for many FSG signings, which makes linking players to Liverpool fairly easy for the press in their quest for clicks. What is …
Liverpool still haven't mastered the PR game

Liverpool still haven't mastered the PR game

"I'm looking forward to the new season with Bayern."
- Mario Gotze, 23/05/2016 Liverpool aren't allowed nice things. Their potentially quixotic end to the season now a distant memory as Mario Gotze seemed to end all the rumours by committing his future, short-term at least, to current club Bayern. This news comes less than a week after the Reds capitulated in the second half of the Europa League final to not just miss out on the Champions League …
Not wanting Europa League Football is a mistake

Not wanting Europa League Football is a mistake

There’s a train of thought currently steaming along that suggests not competing in Europe next season is actually a blessing for Liverpool and Klopp. That it was a Champions League or bust situation, and bust was worth more than a spot in the Europa League. It’s a train of thought that I won’t be boarding, and have never truly understood. In both the run up to, and the wake of our two cup final appearances, and ultimately failures, this season, …
No Emre, No Party

No Emre, No Party

It's Sunday the 28th February, Liverpool's have just battled back to play extra time against Manchester City in the League Cup Final, then face the nerve wrecking agony of Penalties. The first player to step up is Emre Can. He looks calm and composed, with no signs of fatigue or tiredness. Instead of going for power, or looking to place it in the corner, he took the most audacious of penalties, a Panenka, in a final, under immense pressure! If …
