10 Years Since Torres

10 Years Since Torres

July 4th will always have a place in Liverpool fan’s hearts. Back in 2007, Rafael Benitez smashed the club’s record transfer fee to bring Fernando Torres to Anfield for £20.2 million. During his three-and-a-half-year spell, Torres established himself as one of the best No.9’s the club had ever seen. Much like Bonny and Clyde, Batman and Robin or Harvey and Mike from TV series Suits (yes, I’m a huge fan), El Nino and Liverpool were perfect partners in crime. A …
What makes a Liverpool legend?

What makes a Liverpool legend?

It's an interesting question and one which, more than anything else, I'd just like to discuss with you readers. If you're interested in sports other than football, over the past few weeks you may well have heard or seen some 'legendary' players, teams or performances: there was Mohamed Amir's bowling spell in the Champions Trophy Final against India, India's own Virat Kohli - an indisputable legend in the making - or maybe the New Zealand Rugby Union team, and its current …
Liverpool Are Lacking That One True Superstar

Liverpool Are Lacking That One True Superstar

As Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspired Manchester United to their League Cup triumph on Sunday afternoon, it was impossible not to feel a twinge of jealousy. Liverpool’s most bitter rivals had been outplayed for much of the game against a slick Southampton side, but Ibrahimovic was ultimately the difference between the two sides. The legendary Swede has been an enormous success story at Old Trafford, unfortunately, with his all-conquering swagger both on and off the pitch helping transform a club in delightful …
Gerrard and Torres... Can their feats be reproduced?

Gerrard and Torres... Can their feats be reproduced?

So, it has been well documented amongst commentators and fans alike that this Liverpool side, charged by the wizardry of Philippe Coutinho and the heavy mental approach of manager Jurgen Klopp, look the real deal. The reds so far this season have scored 40 goals, and after the 14 games we have had, this is the highest amount of goals at this stage we as supporters have experienced in 121 years. The swashbuckling and sometimes (always) samba dancing front three …
Do FSG need to leave for Liverpool to Evolve?

Do FSG need to leave for Liverpool to Evolve?

The credit Fenway Sports Group built up with the Liverpool fans when saving the club from going into administration has all but ran out. There only so much slack you can cut them for bringing the club back from the dead before it turns into resentment due to always having to look for excuses as to why Liverpool aren't progressing on the pitch. It festers deep down in all of us. When they rocked up at Anfield Tom Werner announced …
The Beautiful Game - The Lookers of Liverpool FC

The Beautiful Game - The Lookers of Liverpool FC

After Liverpool announced the signing of Loris Karius my wife, who has a fleeting interest in football at best, asked if he was a footballer or model which left me thinking what would be the club's best looking team? From the ‘90s Spice Boys to the face cream team in the Nivea adverts here’s a look back at past and present Liverpool players who arguably make the best looking team of all time. The Manager: Jurgen Klopp There’s only one candidate …
Daniel Sturridge is Priceless, Selling Him would be Foolish

Daniel Sturridge is Priceless, Selling Him would be Foolish

In Premier League history Daniel Sturridge ranks fourth when you look at goal involvement per minutes on the pitch. Yet there are a large portion of Liverpool fans that want to sell him and he's nowhere near his peak. Since the inception of the Premier League in 1992 many great strikers have graced it. The likes of Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Dennis Bergkamp, Eric Cantona, Fernando Torres, Alan Shearer and Titi Camera. Our very own no.15 is more effective than …
Patience Can Be a Virtue With FSG

Patience Can Be a Virtue With FSG

When times are darkest and everything seems hopeless people tend to gravitate towards something to believe in and as Liverpool fans we are no different.  Yet at the end of the Hicks and Gillette era at Liverpool there was very little to believe in.  The club was at the brink of financial demise and was under the very real threat of administration.  In those moments all we craved was salvation and stability for the club we all cherish. With Forbes …
The Revenge of the Sith: Torres, 22:59

The Revenge of the Sith: Torres, 22:59

22.59, 31st January 2011 Deep the flames of anger and resentment burn. Mustafar cannot ever depict the red hot incendiaries in the head of the one who turned or what they can ignite by the ones you’ve scorned. The love and affection presented to you was akin to the apprentice of Obi Wan Kenobi. Our once chosen one now simply vanishing amongst the angry embers whose heat and colour blind us from seeing the transition to the very dark blue …
Roberto Firmino - The Game Changer

Roberto Firmino - The Game Changer

Spatial awareness is defined as "the ability to be aware of oneself in space". Positional awareness is defined as "the understanding of positions of objects within an environment". For me a player can have all the ability with a ball at their feet, but to become truly elite, they must have excellent positional and spatial awareness. Roberto Firmino is a special player, one that Liverpool supporters should be grateful to have. Watch him closely and you'll see just how clever …
