Why Man United Are The Stuff Of Nightmares For A Southern Red

Why Man United Are The Stuff Of Nightmares For A Southern Red

January 24th, 1999. It’s a Sunday afternoon that still fills me with horror, and always will. I was turning 12 years of age the following day, and with Sky Sports still not a part of my household, my Dad took me to the pub to watch Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth round clash with Man United, as a pre-birthday treat. Not only did we miss Michael Owen head the Reds into a very early lead at Old Trafford (the traffic in …
Do the fans have faith in Liverpool under Klopp?

Do the fans have faith in Liverpool under Klopp?

Jürgen Klopp has recently signed a new six-year contract extension despite joining the club less than a year ago. The club’s owners described it as ‘irresponsible’ not to offer him a long-term contract. The current deal lasts until 2022 and it will certainly be interesting if Klopp serves the full length of his contract. When you consider that Klopp is the fifth Liverpool manager in six years, the idea of one manager serving six years there seems a little hard …
Liverpool Supporters - From Doubters, to Non Believers

Liverpool Supporters - From Doubters, to Non Believers

I understand, you're scarred. A fanbase living in perpetual fear, of the failings from previous managers and previous owners. Unable to let go of all the nearly moments, of all the false dawns. You're sick of word transition, of buying potential. Tired of watching rivals attract some of the finest players in Europe; while your club conducts the longest transfer saga's in human history. All the while knowing your club will still raid Southampton for what feels like a 17th …
Never underestimate the power of the twelfth man!

Never underestimate the power of the twelfth man!

When the unlikeliest of victories happened, just over two weeks ago, Jürgen Klopp could do no wrong. He was the new saviour, the miracle worker, who coaxed every ounce of every players ability, heart and fight, to battle back against the odds and claim victory, against his beloved former club. The supporters were elated, not just at the victory, but the prospect of what we may become. Supporters united, bonds were formed and bread was broken. But just like any …
Liverpool FC's Daytrippers and Anfield's Atmosphere

Liverpool FC's Daytrippers and Anfield's Atmosphere

They say that the atmosphere is a thing of the past these days at Anfield. That the famous twelfth man is no more. That fans in the terraces can no longer be bothered to sing or cheer the team on when their backs are against the wall. That Anfield is a silent stadium and at times the only noise you hear is coming from the away end especially on European nights or when one of the so called minnows of …
The Week of Klopp: A Fan's Account

The Week of Klopp: A Fan's Account

Jurgen Klopp is at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp is the Liverpool manager. Jurgen Klopp is ours. If you do not believe it, do keep repeating it until you believe it. Every club who changes their manager during the season hope for something, which is now more commonly termed as the 'honey moon effect' or 'manager bounce'. New manager brings in fresh ideas, the players want to impress the new manager, there generally are better performances. But this piece is not about …
Will Liverpool Fans Urge On The Reds of Manchester This Sunday?

Will Liverpool Fans Urge On The Reds of Manchester This Sunday?

Liverpool fans have utterly enjoyed Manchester City's rise and United's fall of late. That 'Aguero' moment back in 2012 got us in a frenzy of celebration and jubilation at the fact that Manchester United lost the league title to their bitter rivals. Why United and not City then? They are both Manchester teams after all. No, Liverpool and Manchester United have been fierce rivals for over twenty years, in contrast to City, who have ascended to the top in the last three-to-four seasons. …

"Soz Abar Us..." | A Liverpool Supporters View

One day, a loving father told his son a story. A story about the Redmen and their mighty exploits, one that captured the imagination like tales from Herodotus and Thucydides and captured the imagination like the sight of a brutal Roman army. I wasn’t born in Crosby or Huyton. I was born in Edinburgh in a different country. But such was the tale told by my father I felt a connection that I hadn’t felt with any other side, even …
Liverpool FC Fans - Fragile: Handle With Care

Liverpool FC Fans - Fragile: Handle With Care

It has been a very strange week in the life of being a Liverpool fan. Especially if you have a Twitter account. Oh boy, especially if you have a Twitter account. Following the defeat that ended, not only our unbeaten outset to 2014, but the incredible eleven game winning streak. The Premier League is also apparently out of our hands, hypothetically, but let us leave that topic aside for just a moment. Looking to place a bet? Place a bet …
Attention Liverpool Fans, It's time to Support & Believe

Attention Liverpool Fans, It's time to Support & Believe

Gerrard is the reason we’re conceding so many goals… No, Johnson is the reason we’re conceding so many goals… No, Agger is the issue… Nope, it’s definitely Jon Flanagan’s fault… It’s definitely Kolo Toure being useless isn’t it. That’s the reason… Just listen to yourselves for a moment. Liverpool won a seven goal thriller to win 4-3 with another vital three points in the bag and yet the fans reaction is one of frustration and confusion… Never mind the fact …
