Both Wijnaldum and Can Have Roles to Play This Season

Both Wijnaldum and Can Have Roles to Play This Season

Farewell then, Tottenham Hotspur. They came, they saw, they met a frosty-faced Senegalese who wanted a word. Despite a dislike of them which has survived decades and has no basis – though maybe it had something to do with Glenn Hoddle’s louche hair and tight shorts – I do find them fascinating. In the 90s they took many a ropey midfielder off our hands just as they slowed down (Redknapp, Murphy, Leonhardsen) so I’m grateful for that, but they’ve always …
Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

The Daniel Sturridge "will he or won't he leave" saga is now more drawn out than the "will Ross and Rachel get it on" storyline. Just when it looks as though the tide has turned and the majority want him sold he scores a striker's goal which reminds everyone exactly what he can offer and exactly what Liverpool miss from time to time. It's a destructive relationship but I'm not quite sure whether player, manager and fans are ready to …
They Think It's All Over... It's Not Yet

They Think It's All Over... It's Not Yet

For much of my Liverpool-supporting life, I've been accused of being needlessly pessimistic. I often expect us to lose every big game we play, even though Jurgen Klopp has a superb record against rivals, and prior to his appointment, I would write us off at every given opportunity. This may have been a defence mechanism, in order to soften the blow when defeats inevitably came along, but there was still a part of me that was naturally negative about the …
Why Liverpool Need to Fix their Achilles Heel

Why Liverpool Need to Fix their Achilles Heel

The defeat against Swansea. Really, the article could be summed up in a tweet, with plenty of characters to spare. The defeat at the weekend to a spirited and resolute Swansea side encapsulated everything wrong with Liverpool’s team over the last six or seven seasons. It hasn’t been fixed yet, and it needs to be Jürgen Klopp’s imperative to resolve what has been Liverpool’s Achilles heel for far too long: stupid mistakes in stupid positions to allow stupid goals. From …

Liverpool vs Southampton Preview | EFL Cup Semi-Final 2nd Leg

Liverpool host Southampton on Wednesday night, as they search to overturn a one goal deficit after a 1-0 defeat in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final.

Daniel Sturridge: Give the Man a Break!

Daniel Sturridge: Give the Man a Break!

In a recent interview, Daniel Sturridge claimed that he believed he was Liverpool's best striker. Yet in the comments section below the online article, a debate raged over Sturridge again, with familiar words and phrases banded around. A select few are below: Arrogant Selfish Injury prone Poor attitude Incompatible Once again, Daniel Sturridge is criticised and hounded for doing next to nothing. It's about time we give this player a break. Daniel Sturridge, since arriving to the club has, in my …
Manchester United vs Liverpool Preview: Old Rivalry, New Perspective

Manchester United vs Liverpool Preview: Old Rivalry, New Perspective

Liverpool make a short trip up the M6 on Sunday to face Manchester United in one of the biggest fixtures in the English football calendar. With United having experienced something of a fall from grace in recent years, the game takes on a slightly rarer meaning with the Red Devils, majorly in-form, chasing the Reds, with Jürgen Klopp's side looking to put further distance between themselves and the team their fans love to hate. THE DETAILS Match: Manchester United vs …
Jurgen Klopp Must Prioritise Man Utd Over the Southampton Clash

Jurgen Klopp Must Prioritise Man Utd Over the Southampton Clash

Liverpool’s relentless schedule shows no sign of slowing up, and we now approach another season-defining spell in the Reds’ season. Having conquered the festive period in impressive fashion - I’m willing to fight anyone who moans about 13 points from a possible 15, just because Liverpool drew with Sunderland - it’s now time for Jurgen Klopp to tackle two different competitions in four days. First up is the League Cup semi-final first-leg against Southampton at St Mary’s on Wednesday, followed …
Steven Caulker, Liverpool Legend

Steven Caulker, Liverpool Legend

On a recent episode of the In Focus podcast on Anfield Index, host Jon Buscall and guest Harinder Singh discussed and debated the concept of a Liverpool legend: what it took to be a legend, which players deserve the honour, and why some fell just short. It was difficult not to listen and be persuaded by the rational and systematic way that both Singh and Buscall approached the question. Now for something completely different. At present, for fans of Liverpool …
