Can Klopp Find The Right Folks To Win Trophies?

Bitter experience brings us all, inevitably, to the same conclusion - for the most part, people are awful. Now, optimistic philanthropist that you are, lovely reader, you may be bristling at such apparent negativity, but that is only because you are one of the good ones. You simply cannot conceive of the ugliness that resides in the souls of so many. Or perhaps you have been blessed by the veritable lottery win that is a life of generally positive interactions …
New Ways To Win For Liverpool

New Ways To Win For Liverpool

There isn’t much to be said for getting old. As the years roll by certain truisms land and hit you in the solar plexus. For example, it is looking increasingly unlikely that I'll ever play centre mid for Liverpool. Oh, don’t give me that ‘if you just go to the gym a bit more and stop eating cheese’ nicety, it's just not happening. Liverpool have yet to give a debut to a 48 year old. It's time to let the dream …
Klopp's Resilient Reds?

Klopp's Resilient Reds?

Brittle, frail, delicate, on the brink of collapse and similar to a Creme Brulee with that soft centre are just a few of the creative ways the Liverpool defence has been described over the years. They're not wrong either, not since the days of Rafa Benitez and Kenny Dalglish's second stint as Liverpool manager have the Reds shown any sort of resiliency when it comes to defending. You can quote the number of clean sheets the team have had all you …
Klopp's 2016/17 Entertainers: A Joyous Time To Support Liverpool

Klopp's 2016/17 Entertainers: A Joyous Time To Support Liverpool

There was a point during Tuesday’s routine 3-0 win over Derby County when I realised I was enjoying watching Liverpool more than I can almost ever remember. Some of the football was breathtaking at times, with the speed, movement and imagination in the Reds’ play something to behold. Whether it be Philippe Coutinho’s quick feet, Roberto Firmino’s effortless elegance or simply the slick efficiency of Nathaniel Clyne, I was riveted. I was going to bang on about Loris Karius’ handsomeness …
Liverpool's Legacy Needs New Paint

Liverpool's Legacy Needs New Paint

Legacy. Heritage. History. For an enterprise that had reached the zenith of excellence, conquering all more than once, yesteryear glories can be very heavy on its shoulders. It is almost suffocating for the same enterprise to rise above cold dark times. The sense of entitlement endeared through our legacy, our heritage, our history, can only make us myopic in our quest for achieving the same heights of past glories. "It's bound to happen. We can win it again. We did …
WE Were Born Under a Liverbird

WE Were Born Under a Liverbird

All of us really. Many may not be born in Liverpool but somehow, some way know that a Liverbird was around us in some shape or form before we could walk. A wise man told me it's not where you've come from but where you're at. So where are you at? Are we ready to stand and be counted? Many a time in the annals of history, Liverpool FC has needed to reach towards the Kop and the rest of …
Captain Hendo: Civil War

Captain Hendo: Civil War

When Dalglish pursued and finally signed a young Jordan Henderson, a few days shy of turning 21 years of age on the 9th of June 2011, many amongst the Liverpool faithful were very hopeful. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Liverpool had only just emerged from the toxic ashes of a civil war, nearly on the brink of being banished to administration only half a season before. Their new owners were viewed as saviors …

Liverpool's Greatest Ever Manager

Liverpool's Greatest Ever Manager

Quick question Reds, Who is Liverpool's greatest ever manager? I bet your answer depends on what age you are. If you're in your twentys or thirties you might say Gérard Houiller or Rafa Benitez or even Jürgen Klopp. If you're in you're forties or older you have a golden generation of managers to choose from. There's Joe Fagan,  Kenny Dalglish, Bob Paisley or the manager who's adored by more Liverpool fans than any other manager Bill Shankly.  For me personally …
Give 'Shanks' to the Board: Klopp, the Fans, and Our Red Revolution

Give 'Shanks' to the Board: Klopp, the Fans, and Our Red Revolution

In America, there are essentially three types of holidays: 1) Those where we eat until we hate ourselves, 2) Those where we give overpriced gifts to each other, to later return them, and 3) Those where we don’t know what else to do, so we blow things up. At present, we are closest to a holiday of the #1 variety, Thanksgiving; a day where we eat to celebrate the arrival and survival of our strangely dressed forefathers on these golden …
