The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …
Revisiting & Respecting Rodgers

Revisiting & Respecting Rodgers

In light of the treble-winning climax to his first season at Celtic, I’ve recognised the end of the 16/17 campaign to be a suitable time to revisit Brendan Rodgers’ time at Liverpool. In Rodgers’ first full season away from Anfield, he’s managed to secure the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup, and the Scottish Premiership via an unbeaten season. However, the reaction from a significant number of Liverpool fans towards Rodgers’ success has been somewhat bitter, disrespectful and unsupportive, and …

Liverpool's Team of 2016

Liverpool's Team of 2016

It's cliche I know but a year in football is a long time. If you compared December 2015 and December 2016 they're almost unrecognisable. After the Boxing Day fixtures in 2015 Liverpool were in 8th position with 27 points and a -1 goal difference. Watford and Crystal Palace where both ahead of the Reds and Everton were just a single point behind. Going into the game against Stoke City on the 27th December Liverpool are 2nd in the league with 37 …
Liverpool 4 Stoke 1 - Player Ratings

Liverpool 4 Stoke 1 - Player Ratings

Liverpool put in a strong display at Anfield against Stoke, as the Potters were dispatched, in a 4-1 victory. Jon Walters gave Stoke an early lead before Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino sent Liverpool into the break the happier side. A Gianelli Imbula own goal and Daniel Sturridge's first Premier League goal of the season ensured that the Reds spread festive cheer all around Anfield. Stoke did trouble the Reds in the opening 20 minutes, but Jurgen Klopp's men soon …
Liverpool vs Stoke City Preview: Reds to unwrap late present of points?

Liverpool vs Stoke City Preview: Reds to unwrap late present of points?

Liverpool host Stoke City on Tuesday in a bid to deliver a late Christmas present to their fans, in the form of three points. In a packed festive schedule full of high-profile fixtures, this one is likely to go a little under the radar, but it's an important one for the Reds to win in order to keep up at the top of the table. THE DETAILS Match: Liverpool vs Sunderland Venue: Anfield Date: Tuesday 27th December Time: 17:15 BST Referee: Michael Oliver FORM Liverpool's …
Liverpool v Stoke City Preview: Key Battles

Liverpool v Stoke City Preview: Key Battles

For the first time in six years Liverpool don't play a game on Boxing Day. In 2010 it was only because bad weather didn't allow a game at Blackpool, that the Reds not play on 26th December. But this time the revenue and the money from television has given the fixtures a spin, and the tradition of all ten teams playing on Boxing Day has been discontinued. Instead, the Reds welcome Stoke City to Anfield on the 27th, in the first of …
Are Liverpool Dark Horses for the Title?

Are Liverpool Dark Horses for the Title?

It's a new dawn in the Premier League. Not just in terms of more money than ever being pumped into the league effectively evening the playing field somewhat, but more importantly, never before have people been able to find a collection of the most influential managers in world football today within the same league at the same time. It's a who's who of managers as Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola join Jurgen Klopp, Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger, Mauricio Pochettino, Slaven …
Lucas Leiva and the Anfield Cull

Lucas Leiva and the Anfield Cull

We all knew when Klopp arrived at Liverpool Football Club, we had unanimous agreement that a massive clearout of players was in order. There was the likes of Jose Enrique and Martin Skrtel that needed to be moved on from the club. Today, even without any European competition this season, the manager has found his Liverpool squad too crowded for a team that would play fifty-odd games this season, at most. As things stand, there are already a number of …
Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

The Transfer Window has been officially open for nearly a month now and Liverpool's two biggest signings have been players from within the Premier League. Both Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield for a combined £55 Million. Most Reds fans must have a strong feeling of deja-vu about such deals. Since Fenway Sports Group bought the club Liverpool have spent over £200 Million on Premier League proven players with varied success. Despite the questionable success of this tactic …
