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 …
Houllier's Treble-Winners: The Squad Klopp Should Replicate

Houllier's Treble-Winners: The Squad Klopp Should Replicate

It may only be the start of June, but already transfer rumours have started, and talk of next season will only intensify. Frankly, we could all just do with a breather after such a stressful last 12 months at Anfield. The various discussions over which players are potentially moving to Anfield will be non-stop in the coming weeks and months, which is bound to cause of mix of happiness, anger and frustration. Rather than Jurgen Klopp signing an array of world-renowned, first-team …
Is Momentum Building Again Under Klopp?

Is Momentum Building Again Under Klopp?

International breaks are a bit of a curate's egg. Now, that is supposed to mean that there are both good and bad aspects to them and yet the origin of the expression yields a meaning far closer to this columnist's opinion of the all-too-frequent Premier League interruptions. Apparently, the turn of phrase comes from an 1895 Punch cartoon which depicted a meek and sycophantic curate, who, despite being given a stale egg at the bishop's dining table, obsequiously assured his …
Maybe No News Is Good News For Liverpool

Maybe No News Is Good News For Liverpool

Unbelievable. Well, I warned you, gentle reader. Our beloved model pro, one-game-at-a-time, controversy-eschewing Reds do not make for good copy when we are on a two-week mid-season break. So far, this morning, and Latest News has waited ALL morning, there has not been so much as a whiff of anything newsworthy. We were dangerously close to this becoming one of those dreaded opinion columns, y'know, like that Downey fella used to write, when the midday news dump brought a couple …
Klavan: Fans Will Have A Big Impact

Klavan: Fans Will Have A Big Impact

Today, The Echo and liverpoolfc.com are running a story about how a lucky punter can win the chance to play 'paddle-tennis' with Jürgen Klopp. Apparently, a £5 donation to the Liverpool Foundation means any fan who is not yet a member of the burgeoning #KloppOut movement can enter into a raffle, the prize of which is a day with the big amiable German. Elsewhere, the club is being touted as next summer's most feckless spenders and the perpetual transfer tittle-tattle train …
8 Memorable Bosman Signings for Liverpool

8 Memorable Bosman Signings for Liverpool

With confirmation of Joel Matip arriving in the summer on a free transfer earlier this week it got me thinking about previous Bosman transfers at Liverpool. It's almost instinctive to hear the words 'free transfer' and picture Joe Cole and Milan Jovanovic as a Liverpool fan but the club's history with Bosman deals isn't that bad, it's actually pretty good. It may be controversial, you may not agree, but below are the top 8 most memorable Bosman deals Liverpool have …
Memorable Merseyside Derbies

Memorable Merseyside Derbies

This weekend’s Merseyside derby is arguably the biggest in years and certainly its outcome could carry particular significance for Brendan Rodgers and his future as Liverpool manager. So, in a break from all the pressure and speculation surrounding the current position of the club, I decided to take a nostalgic look back some of my personal favourite Merseyside derbies. FA Cup Final 1986, Wembley This will always be a special game to me for many reasons, not only was it …
Back To The Future

Back To The Future

When forced to abandon something one loves for a while, there are clear stages of grieving for that lost object of affection. Initially the pain is sharp, like that of a parent whose only child has just flown the nest. You battle the overwhelming impulse to reunite, interfere, intercede. Eventually, however, the severity of the need to remain connected lessens, and one assumes the demeanour of a fond observer, like, say, a sidelined podcast host watching a succession of his …
An Evening With Rodgers

An Evening With Rodgers

I met them both at the Stadium Bukit Jalil press box when the 2nd half started. Duty calls, you see. I was adamant that I spend the 1st half before with my family, eager to impress upon my two elder girls and their cousin sister what it meant to immerse themselves in the game that was being played that evening. The Mighty Reds were in town. And they were up against a select team of players chosen from the Malaysian …
