Liverpool's Old Guard Barely Hanging On

Liverpool's Old Guard Barely Hanging On

For Liverpool supporters, transfers can never come fast enough. We always want to push that revolving door a little faster until we find a combination of players that starts filling up the trophy cabinet again. However, glance at the squad from 2013/14 season, just four years ago and you’ll notice that only a few faces remain. The crocked club captain; Jordan Henderson. The want-away striker; Daniel Sturridge. The freshly sentenced right back; Jon Flanagan. And the benched ‘keeper; Simon Mignolet. …
Liverpool Were Wrong to Not Sack Flanagan - And It's a Damn Shame

Liverpool Were Wrong to Not Sack Flanagan - And It's a Damn Shame

Everything is perception. As of right now, Liverpool have a player on their books who, according to the criminal report, throttled his partner Rachel Wall, held her against a wall and kicked her while she was on the ground. There is almost far too many details and variables that go into a complicated, nuanced case like this, and football’s reaction to it. For the record, Jon Flanagan’s partner is still with him, despite his court conviction. The man in question …
Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Dejan Lovren: The Buck Doesn't Stop There

Sometime after 4.15pm yesterday, a collection of mumbles, conversations and downright vitriol ran around the away section at Wembley. ‘He’s got to take him off.’ ‘We’re going to get battered here. Fuck’s sake, Jurgen.’ ‘Get that useless twat off now!’ Later on some people speculated that Dejan Lovren’s was the worst performance ever given by a Liverpool player. That got me thinking. My mind flew to a John Arne Riise display at Craven Cottage years ago when I seriously wondered …

What do we expect to see of Jon Flanagan?

Once hailed the ‘Scouse Cafu’ for his solid season in 2013/14, in which he played Left Back for the majority of the season, Jon Flanagan now finds himself Liverpool’s fourth choice Right Back.  He earned himself a call-up to England’s World Cup team for his terrific campaign, albeit he only made an appearance coming off the bench in a warm-up friendly against Ecuador. Just how has he found himself become so low in the pecking order? Through no fault of …
Trent Alexander-Arnold: A Star is Born

Trent Alexander-Arnold: A Star is Born

I remember watching Robbie Threlfall in a Youth Cup final between Liverpool and Man United in 2007, and convincing myself he was going to be a future Reds great. I can hear some of you asking who on earth Robbie Threlfall is. The defender starred in Liverpool’s march to glory that year, scoring in the final of the second-leg at Old Trafford, and big things were expected. Threlfall never made the grade at Anfield, as you may have guessed - …

With Nathaniel Clyne set to miss Liverpool’s opening Premier League fixture against Watford next Saturday, having failed to feature prominently in pre-season due to hamstring and back injurie, Jurgen Klopp will have a decision to make at the back. The boss has already confirmed that Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Jon Flanagan are in contention for a starting berth, with all three players having featured over the last few games ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

Jurgen Klopp - Master of Psychology

Jurgen Klopp - Master of Psychology

"Lying is a common communication strategy" (Zuckerman) All managers are liars. They have to be if they want to be a successful manager in the modern game. These days they're expected to keep the fans on side, win the game of chess against the media and keep their players happy.  It's a juggling act that some struggle to balance. The more conniving they are, the more successful they tend to be. It's not a bad thing, after all, honesty isn't always …

Jon Flanagan: Does He Deserve A Chance?

Jon Flanagan: Does He Deserve A Chance?

All fans have their favourites and also those players they feel are not up to the playing standards to play for the club they support passionately. One of those players who divides opinion amongst fans is Liverpool born full-back Jon Flanagan. Flanagan, 23, has only recently returned to playing following an injury to his left knee which sidelined the player for 18 months.  Even when he returned to playing in January 2016 in an FA Cup match against Exeter City, …
