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 …
Adam Lallana and The Wrongs of Being Right

Adam Lallana and The Wrongs of Being Right

One of the best things about following, supporting and sharing any views on football is the unerring ability to be wrong. Seriously. Being wrong is great. It’s an incredibly underrated skill. Imagine a scenario where the opposite is the case. You go to the match or a pub or to someone’s house and you call everything with 100% accuracy. ‘He’s no good.   He’s brilliant. He can’t play there. He’ll come good in exactly 48 games and that lad will be …
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 …
Can Sturridge Fire Liverpool To The Champions League?

Can Sturridge Fire Liverpool To The Champions League?

When Latest News was but a tyke, Liverpool bestrode the domestic and European stage with a paradoxical blend of dignified swagger and quiet arrogance - a unique combination that often accompanies greatness, peculiar to those who know they are the best but retain a humility about that fact. From 1977 to 1984 the Reds were the finest club side on the planet and the four European Cups amassed during that period were the glittering totems of that triumphant era. Instrumental in the …
Eleven Games In for Liverpool: 2016-17 vs. 1987-88

Eleven Games In for Liverpool: 2016-17 vs. 1987-88

If you were fortunate enough to be at Anfield on Sunday, you probably left the ground with conflicting emotions. Watching the league leaders take the seventh place team apart while our rivals stutter was a joy to behold, but there’s a voice somewhere reminding us of false hope. Hubris kills. Title challenges come rare to Liverpool – 2002, 2009 and 2014 being probably the last three – but as the Chelsea and Palace games were only a couple of years …
Five Players LFC Would Happily Welcome Back Now

Five Players LFC Would Happily Welcome Back Now

Alan Kennedy  The left-back scored two European Cup winning goals - need I say more? It was obvious this shortlist would contain a left-back and given there's been very few who have made the position their own in the Premier League era, it's no surprise I went for a solid performer of the past. John Arne Riise is perhaps the best left-back Liverpool have had since the turn of the Millennium and was a close contender but Kennedy was part …
Liverpool's 1992 FA Cup run

Liverpool's 1992 FA Cup run

A Simpler Time Looking ahead to next season I wanted to write about a time when the FA Cup still meant a great deal to all clubs and managers. Defeat to Sevilla last month ensured that Liverpool’s focus is going to be domestically fixated next term. With no European football to contend with surely Klopp will want his men to compete on all three fronts at home? Ronnie Moran Leads Them Out On 9th May 1992, Wembley Stadium was the …
Return of the Jedi: Ian Rush

Return of the Jedi: Ian Rush

"A Jedi Knight? Jeez, I'm out of it for a little while, everyone gets delusions of grandeur!" Deal with it Han Solo, he’s definitely a Jedi! A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, Everton thought they were striking back. They almost did. They had the 1984/85 season where they amassed 90 points and won the league with a 13 point gap over the course of 42 matches. They won the European Cup Winners' Cup and lost in …
Playing Favourites - Who’s Your Liverpool Hero?

Playing Favourites - Who’s Your Liverpool Hero?

“He's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now.” James Gordon, The Dark Knight Rises “I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me Superman.” Homer Simpson
Favouritism, in this politically correct world obsessed with always presenting a veneer of egalitarianism, can be a bit of a dirty word. However, when it comes to football and friendship, partisanship is something in which we all engage openly and without fear …
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 …
