What makes a Liverpool legend?

What makes a Liverpool legend?

It's an interesting question and one which, more than anything else, I'd just like to discuss with you readers. If you're interested in sports other than football, over the past few weeks you may well have heard or seen some 'legendary' players, teams or performances: there was Mohamed Amir's bowling spell in the Champions Trophy Final against India, India's own Virat Kohli - an indisputable legend in the making - or maybe the New Zealand Rugby Union team, and its current …
Just How Attractive Is Jürgen Klopp?

Just How Attractive Is Jürgen Klopp?

It's been an odd couple of days for those of us obsessed with the state of affairs at Liverpool Football Club. For one cohort, the aftermath of Manchester United's Europa League victory was the perfect opportunity for the kind of moaning and masochistic self-flagellation that seems to be de rigeur amongst them. They truly seem to hate themselves and the rest of the world, this lot. It was all over now, you see. The Mancs would beat us to all the …
Are the Kids All Right for Liverpool?

Are the Kids All Right for Liverpool?

Steve McManaman, Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling. Six names that invoke differing opinions amongst Liverpool fans, but whatever their legacy, those six names are the only ones to have come through the youth academy system and successfully establish themselves as first team regulars during the Premier League era. There have been others, such as Dominic Matteo, Martin Kelly and Jon Flanagan who have had spells in the first team, but never really established themselves …
Lucas Leiva: The Intangible Benefits of Liverpool's Most Experienced Player

Lucas Leiva: The Intangible Benefits of Liverpool's Most Experienced Player

I’m pleased it was Lucas. For all the talk of Jurgen’s ambitious new shavers coming in to kick start the FA Cup campaign, it took the oldest head in red to beat his man at the near post and thunder in from close range. A goal from the other end of the Woodburn/Leeds scale. Old man comes in and saves the day rather than a new buck makes a good start for Liverpool. As a man of advanced years I …
Liverpool's Late Winners

Liverpool's Late Winners

Learning to Love the Fat Lady’s Tune When Sadio Mané reacted fastest to the rebound, breaking Everton hearts on Monday night, he unleashed the most primal act in all of us. If you weren’t at Goodison, then, like me, you were up off the couch, fists clenched with the most guttural of roars leaving your throat. Relief, coupled with mild disbelief, takes over. You watch the players celebrate, dreading the linesman’s flag, then you hear Mike Dean’s whistle during the …
Another Crocked Liverbird: Liverpool's Knee-Hilistic Past

Another Crocked Liverbird: Liverpool's Knee-Hilistic Past

Some weeks make you wish God had come up with something other than knees - weeks when you can't wear shorts for fear of seeing your own knees in a mirror and losing all sense of what it means to 'be'. It has been a year since the beginning of one such week, when as a result of two Liverpool employees falling over in unconnected incidents, the phrase ‘anterior cruciate ligament’ achieved unprecedented frequency of use. At the time, Danny Ings …
Daniel Sturridge is Priceless, Selling Him would be Foolish

Daniel Sturridge is Priceless, Selling Him would be Foolish

In Premier League history Daniel Sturridge ranks fourth when you look at goal involvement per minutes on the pitch. Yet there are a large portion of Liverpool fans that want to sell him and he's nowhere near his peak. Since the inception of the Premier League in 1992 many great strikers have graced it. The likes of Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Dennis Bergkamp, Eric Cantona, Fernando Torres, Alan Shearer and Titi Camera. Our very own no.15 is more effective than …
Roberto Firmino - Exposing The Myths

Roberto Firmino - Exposing The Myths

Social media blew up in response to an interview that BT Sport pundit and former Liverpool player Michael Owen gave to the Daily Mirror. In it, Owen was asked about current Reds star Roberto Firmino and his response was surprising; he said he was split on him and claimed that he’d played well against Manchester City and Chelsea earlier in the season, but didn’t do it enough and was only giving one good performance in five or six games. That, …
The Top 16 ex-Liverpool Players in the Media

The Top 16 ex-Liverpool Players in the Media

I have ranked the top 16 ex-Liverpool players in the media. In fact, I could only think of 16, so it could also be considered a list of the worst - there is quite a range of quality! Ex-players are eligible if they are - or will be - employed at some point in the media in the 2015/16 season. Therefore this excludes people like Alan Hansen and Kevin Keegan from this list. These pundits, commentators and writers have been ranked on …
God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

"It doesn't matter what you do, we've got God on our side", a fairly common retort from a Liverpool fan in the mid to late nineties. No matter who you were bantering with, which one of your mates' sides LFC were facing that week - United, Arsenal, Spurs, Newcastle, even Sheffield Wednesday at the time - it wasn't important, because we had God, and He was gonna win it for us. And, more often than not, He did! A shining …
