Have Liverpool FC let the Academy down?

*"Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight (I love cheap thrills) But I don't need no money as long as I can feel the beat. Cheap thrills, Yeah I love those cheap thrills..." An acapella version of the Sia song rings out around the bathroom as he finishes his morning shave. "John, is that you singing again?"* Since Fenway Sports Group bought the club in 2011 they've been trying to beat the system and yet they've neglected, …

Fan Media vs Mainstream Media - The Shaky Head Journalist

It's not often you get chance to compare football  with wrestling without it being a stretch but now feels appropriate. The mid 90's saw the emergence of World Championship Wrestling (WCW), a wrestling company intent on taking on the already established World Wrestling Federation (WWF now known as WWE). Ted Turner, founder of CNN, had an idea. He didn't want to share the market with WWF, he wanted to own the market. Eric Bischoff went about making it a reality. …

The result will be seen as a positive one for the …

Wingers Liverpool could target to ease Klopp's concerns

"We have enough strikers – five with Roberto [Firmino] – but not too many wingers, just a few young ones with great potential." Reds boss Jurgen Klopp gave fans the biggest Easter egg yet with regards to his summer transfer plans when he implied that Liverpool are a bit light in the winger department. It's not exactly a shock, Liverpool's only first team winger is Jordon Ibe, there's an obvious need for width in the squad but it's not a …
Klopp's Kids

Klopp's Kids

Every time Liverpool step on to the pitch I always try and learn something. For instance some of the things I learned under Brendan Rodgers were, I learned that he didn't have a clue about managing a team who didn't have a twenty goal a season striker playing for him or what a defence was. I learned that you need more than character to win matches and that he had no clue when it came to buying, selling and loaning …
Home vs away form? A real concern or an imaginary problem

Home vs away form? A real concern or an imaginary problem

On Saturday, Jürgen Klopp’s blitzkrieg offence claimed its latest high-profile away victim in Manchester City. After battering an already-broken Chelsea 3-1 a few weeks back, Liverpool could approach the far more difficult proposition of an Etihad away day with renewed hope, a hope that was certainly not misplaced. By the end of the game, City’s defence was left a rabble, after a brutal demolition job from the trifecta of Coutinho, Firmino and Lallana. The 4-1 victory over City was better than …
How to Tactically Get The Best Out of Jordan Henderson

How to Tactically Get The Best Out of Jordan Henderson

Jordan Henderson's impending return has been greeted with open arms by a large part of the Liverpool fan base. The captain has been missing since the 1-0 victory against Bournemouth way back in the second match of the season and during his extended absence his importance to the team has grown by the week. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.   The Reds' midfield this season, and by midfield I mean centre-midfielders so I'm not classing Roberto Firmino and Philippe …
