Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Jordan Henderson. League Cup Winner 2012, Europa League Runner Up 2016, Audi Cup Runner Up 2017 & Serial Young Player of the Year Award Winner. His honours list reads like a small pack of Revels. Yet somewhat amazingly, despite continuing to divide opinion and never really cementing his position as a winner, Henderson is a man who continues to defy critics and has somehow managed to work himself into the role of Captain for both club and country. For Liverpool, …
The Difficulties in Being Gerrard's Successor

The Difficulties in Being Gerrard's Successor

It hasn't been the greatest two weeks in the history of the club to say the least, no wins in four and an early exit in the Carabao Cup has fans clamouring to find reasons for our run of poor form. The defence has taken the brunt of it, individual and tactical mistakes leading to 10 goals conceded in 4 games and fingers being pointed to individual players as each game goes by; Lovren at Sevilla, Klavan at Burnley and …
Trent Alexander-Arnold: A learning curve

Trent Alexander-Arnold: A learning curve

One of the feel good stories surrounding Liverpool FC recently has been the rise of young scouser Trent Alexander-Arnold. For years there was a constant stream of local lads making it into the first team and going on to become cult heroes or world class players, the academy down the years has produced the likes of Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and most notably Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard. Since the debut of our former captain; the well …
Trent Alexander-Arnold - Local Hero

Trent Alexander-Arnold - Local Hero

I know it shouldn’t be important, but it is. I know it should just be about the team, but this isn’t. I know that it shouldn’t matter who scores for Liverpool, but on this occasion it means the world. When Trent Alexander-Arnold wheeled away in celebration in Germany this week, and tried gamely to calm his mind after his magnificent achievement, he knew that any attempt at casualness and insouciance would be an act of folly. He had just done …
Losing Close-To-World-Class Coutinho Would Be Unbearable

Losing Close-To-World-Class Coutinho Would Be Unbearable

With the great players, you can see the moment at which they are about to become genuinely world-class. With Steven Gerrard, it was 2004/05, when he matured from being one of Europe’s best young midfielders to one of the finest players on the entire planet. Luis Suarez did it in 2013/14 - it should never forgotten how brilliant he was the previous year, too - when his levels of genius were on a par with any player we have ever …

The Rise and Fall of Rafa Benitez

The Rise and Fall of Rafa Benitez

With Lucas Leiva set to leave Liverpool FC for Lazio there will no longer by any players left at the club, who were managed by Rafa Benitez. The Spaniard is a beloved figure at Anfield but the state in which he left the club, even though not entirely his fault, has left a bitter taste in some supporters. The fans saw Benitez build a finely tuned football machine over 4 years only to see it fail to win any silverware and …
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 …
The Cult of Lucas Leiva

The Cult of Lucas Leiva

Liverpool fans are an emotional and nostalgic bunch. We feel the need to eulogise our players to the point where there always needs to be someone at the club who can be considered a legend. With Lucas Leiva the longest standing player at the club and the only member of the first team who was around the last time we won a trophy except for our captain (and God knows our fan-base will refuse to acknowledge Hendo as a good …
Scouting Naby Keita - The Unrivalled Midfielder

Scouting Naby Keita - The Unrivalled Midfielder

He’s the talk of the town. Will he ask for a move? Will Liverpool pay the money? Will Leipzig bend to a certain fee? Everyone seems to have their opinion on the Guinean midfielder who lit up the Bundesliga last season, breaking out onto the world scene. So, is he worth all the fuss? In a word: yes. Style Firstly, the concept of Keita only having proved himself over one exceptional season is a fallacy. What last season’s performances at …
