Liverpool FC - If You Build It, They Will Stay

Liverpool FC - If You Build It, They Will Stay

Nothing great ever happens in team sports without the supporting cast playing some role on many different levels. Being in the background is usually no longer enough. The supporting cast now needs to contribute more than just hang around waiting to be dragged to titles. Countless times in recent history we have seen the Most Valuable Player in a season miss out on the grand prize despite their stellar performances. In a world were loyalty is now the exception rather …
Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Great Liverpool attacking pairings throughout history roll off the tongue. Ian St John and Roger Hunt excelled in the 1960s, John Toshack and Kevin Keegan were the archetypal ‘Little N Large’ combo the following decade and Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush were perhaps the Reds’ greatest duo-in-tandem. Jumping into the Premier League era, Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore wreaked havoc for a short time, before Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres came so close to inspiring Liverpool to glory in 2008/09. …
The Latest In A Long Line Of Deadly Duo’s: Firmino and Salah

The Latest In A Long Line Of Deadly Duo’s: Firmino and Salah

Liverpool have long been blessed with tremendous attacking partnerships; there was Emile Heskey and Michael Owen, the brilliance of Torres and Gerrard, the magic of SAS and this season’s elusive ‘Fab Four’. Now, following the departure of Philippe Coutinho last month, a new partnership beckons for The Reds. Joining from Atletico Madrid, Fernando Torres formed one of the most deadly partnerships in the Premier League alongside Steven Gerrard, netting 54 times between them by the close of the 2007/08 season …
Klopp's Gamble and Liverpool's Creativity

Klopp's Gamble and Liverpool's Creativity

It has been over a month since a certain Brazilian left for Barcelona. A month of ups and downs, as it more often than not is for Liverpool supporters. From managing to snap Manchester City's win streak to losing to Swansea and another early exit in the FA Cup, to snatching a draw from the jaws of victory last week (still salty about that one), to our first 2-0 win in a year. At the end of the day, we …
Liverpool March On In The Battle For Top 4

Liverpool March On In The Battle For Top 4

Another efficient away day performance from the Reds (or more correctly the Oranges); we find ourselves within 2 points of a drab Manchester United team. The 3 points at the Saints sealed a pleasing season double against a side that gave us 4 torrid games last season. Whilst the performance was not spectacular (even if the assist for both goals were), it was another generally solid performance on the road. All without really having to get out of third gear. …

FSG: Buy A New Club, Not A New Player

Disclaimer: Sorry to disappoint the FSGOut’ers, but this isn’t one of those articles. The boys from Boston will be directing the future for years to come. This is an FSG-Figure-It-Out article pondering possible paths to make the club more competitive while these owners are in place. DOUBTING THOMAS This week James Pearce did his “bad news” best to tamp down the persistent links to Monaco’s versatile winger, Thomas Lemar. Pearce cited the price tag an issue for the waning interest. …
What James Milner brings to Liverpool's midfield against a low block defence

What James Milner brings to Liverpool's midfield against a low block defence

After two terrible defeats in the space of six days and the Reds failing to add to their squad in the January transfer window, Liverpool fans were understandably extremely concerned about how the rest of the season would pan out. One of the most pressing issues was the team's lack of creativity in midfield, without the magician, Phil Coutinho, how were the Reds going to break down teams who play with a low block? Gini Wijnaldum has rarely been effective …
Jürgen Klopp Faces His Biggest Challenge As Liverpool Boss

Jürgen Klopp Faces His Biggest Challenge As Liverpool Boss

Jürgen Klopp has earned our trust, having transformed this side from its underperforming state at the end of Rodgers’ reign, but fans have every right to question his attitude over the January window, with the club’s old guard suffering two more casualties. Joining Liverpool in January 2013, Sturridge and Coutinho both departed the club having contributed a combined 117 goals in 334 appearances. Delivering moments of true magic, the duo became known for their exceptional, almost telepathic relationship at the …
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 …
