The Liverpool Delusion

The Liverpool Delusion

Human beings are a species that seek meaning, and self-worth, sometimes over-inflating their own self-worth to feel better about themselves. Nowhere is the overinflation of self-worth more visible than that of certain fans' attitude towards Liverpool Football Club. An extremely strong start to the season had pundits and fans across the country lauding Jürgen Klopp and his team; Liverpool were heading in the right direction, FSG had made the right call, appointing Klopp, the summer transfer policy was good, and …

VIDEO Nina Kauser Show: Liverpool's January - Bad Planning or Bad Luck?

The Nina Kauser show on YouTube is back! For my sixth Anfield Index TV show I decided to discuss whether Liverpool's terrible January, where they picked up three points from five games and were knocked out of two cup competitions, was down to bad planning or sheer bad luck! The discussion came about after Jurgen Klopp himself talked about the fixture congestion last week. I'll have my say in the Kauser Korner segment also! Here's what I asked: How did they react? …
Leicester City vs Liverpool Preview: Revenge for Ranieri?

Leicester City vs Liverpool Preview: Revenge for Ranieri?

Liverpool face Leicester City on Monday evening in one of the few games this season where there will be little attention on Jürgen Klopp and his Reds, in comparison to the other team. Claudio Ranieri is Dilly Ding, Dilly Gone. Leicester City are without a manager at the time of writing. Surely time for Liverpool to prey on their vulnerabilities, and pick up a second successive win? THE DETAILS Match: Leicester City vs Liverpool Venue: King Power Stadium Referee: Michael Oliver Date: Monday 27th …
Why This Summer Is Genuinely Liverpool's Biggest In Recent Memory

Why This Summer Is Genuinely Liverpool's Biggest In Recent Memory

I know that some of you will have read that headline, tutted to yourself and thought, “we say that every year”. You’re right, to be fair. Every summer that comes along, we tell ourselves that this is the one that will see Liverpool reach the next level. The one that will finally end the wait for that elusive Premier League title. We said it in 2002, 2009 and 2014, following the Reds’ best attempts at lifting the trophy since its …
Paper Planes or Red Arrows... are Liverpool back?

Paper Planes or Red Arrows... are Liverpool back?

The paper planes are a thing of the past, the swashbuckling Spurs slaying Red Arrows are back in the business. Or are they? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it will be a while until we can say Jürgen Klopp's reds are back in the sky. What happened during the month of January was nothing short of a disaster. Liverpool were dumped out of every competition they were involved in, which additionally included the race for the …

Gates rejected chance to buy Liverpool

American businessman Bill Gates, one of the world’s richest men, rejected the chance to purchase Liverpool in 2010, with the Microsoft co-founder failing to even respond to the email. With Gates worth an estimated £70 billion, the proposition has been revealed following the ongoing legal battle between Mill Financial, former co-owner George Gillett and the Royal Bank of Scotland. It is believed that two separate approaches were also made to Robert Kraft, owner of recent Super Bowl winners the New …
Leicester v Liverpool & How Changes to the Kick-off Impacts the Fans

Leicester v Liverpool & How Changes to the Kick-off Impacts the Fans

Over the last few years I’ve started to enjoy non-footballing weekends like the last one. Sure, the match-day sense of expectation with the accompanied stomach cramps of anxiety and dread are always welcome,  but every now and then time off is a nice thing. A stress-free couple of days to end the week. Thanks to the lads kindly donating our 4th Round tie to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Liverpool did not play at the weekend, yet there was still a game which interested …
Let's Make Anfield a Fortress Again

Let's Make Anfield a Fortress Again

There may not be any cup glory heading in the direction of Anfield this season, but there’s still the chance of making it into the top four.  If Liverpool are to make it into the Champions League, form at Anfield must improve. It’s time to make Anfield a fortress again. That did actually look to be the case earlier in the season when the Reds were able to chalk up win after win. The first twelve league and cup ties …
How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

It must be said, Liverpool have been on and off lately. That’s putting it rather mildly. To have such fantastic showings against Chelsea and Spurs, and then to produce…whatever THAT was against Wolverhampton and Hull; it’s indicative of a side with a fantastic plan A – one that gets the better of most teams who want the ball, but without a proper plan B. Of course; the idea that every football team necessarily needs a plan B when things aren’t …
Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

Do these loan players have a future with the Reds?

There are a number of notable players currently enjoying spells away from Anfield, but with only three months left of the season, will they be welcomed back into the squad come the summer or will they be shipped out again, temporarily or permanently? There are currently 13 senior players out on loan; ranging from former PSG captain Mamadou Sakho at Crystal Palace to 22-year-old striker Jack Dunn at Tranmere Rovers. Some of them are quality players who just needed game …
