Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

Rating Liverpool Players' Consistency in 2016-17 - PART TWO

There has been plenty of talk of Liverpool's inconsistencies throughout the 2016-17 campaign. After a hugely impressive start to the season, it's been another disappointing year and what had the potential to be a successful campaign, has turned into an unpredictable final few months. Liverpool have the best success record against teams in the top six and they picked up a number of commanding victories against their rivals at the beginning of the season. Wins against Arsenal and Everton on …
Playing United Still Leaves Me in Bits

Playing United Still Leaves Me in Bits

I hate playing United, me. I love beating them, that bit is fantastic and gives me a sense of satisfaction that is difficult to explain. The losing part pretty much goes without saying, especially with our old mucker Jose in charge of them now, but I just hate playing them. Maybe it's down to my blood pressure resembling a thermometer in the Nevada dessert at midday before the game even kicks off - the word tense doesn't come close. I …
No Mane - Can We Cope?

No Mane - Can We Cope?

Liverpool have enjoyed an impressive season so far and Sadio Mane has been at the heart of it. Few could have envisioned the magnitude of his impact when he completed a £30million summer switch from Southampton. All the questions that were initially raised about the investment have been well and truly answered, with the forward slotting in perfectly to Klopp’s side. Featuring in all but one of Liverpool’s 20 Premier League games, Mane has registered nine goals and five assists …
Liverpool Now Have Little Room For Error In Title Race

Liverpool Now Have Little Room For Error In Title Race

Jurgen Klopp has made a point of stressing that Premier League titles are not won or lost in December. So much of what the German says hits the nail on the head more than most managers in world football, but he is only half right here. The 49-year-old is spot on about the league being impossible to clinch around the Christmas period, barring some kind of freak season, in which a team pulls 20 points clear. That has never happened …
Liverpool v Manchester United: Pragmatism or Poor Performance?

Liverpool v Manchester United: Pragmatism or Poor Performance?

Oh, Lord this is going to be tricky. Before I start on this complex and somewhat tricky standpoint, I’d like to issue the following caveats. Firstly, I don’t like anything to do with Manchester United. I’m one of those people who finds themselves wiping their hands on their jeans if I accidentally brush one of their shirts in a sports shop. Ridiculous at my age, but there we are. Secondly, I don’t like Jose Mourinho. If I were to bump …
Liverpool supporters need to see the bigger picture

Liverpool supporters need to see the bigger picture

Being a Liverpool fan has never been, nor ever will be, an easy ride. The reds dominated English and indeed European Football for large portions of the 1960, 70s and 80s but, perhaps inevitably, currently find themselves languishing behind a pack of teams growing in terms of footballing credentials and, naturally, wealth. Over a decade and three managers since Liverpool last won a major trophy, Jurgen Klopp’s reds are, once again, gearing up for an assault on England’s most desirable …
Liverpool and Man United - A Centuries' Old Rivalry

Liverpool and Man United - A Centuries' Old Rivalry

In the mid-1990s I was in a band. Don’t bother Googling my name along with the words ‘hits by’ or ‘world tour’. We played two gigs and broke up when the bass player went to play jazz in a London hotel, but back then we were going to build empires with our jangly guitared take on urban life. I moved from Liverpool to London in 1988 and my bandmates were mostly from my Polytechnic, which is what average universities were …

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 …
Relive Liverpool's route to the Europa League Final

Relive Liverpool's route to the Europa League Final

Liverpool 0-1 Grazer AK – 28th September, 2000. Liverpool 0-0 Rapid Bucharest – 24th August, 2004. Remember them? Nope, me neither. Rarely do European campaigns begin with barnstorming victories and scintillating football. The two aforementioned results won’t live long in the memory, but the Reds ended each season with European silverware to their name. The same could be true if we overcome the Europa League specialists Sevilla on Wednesday, but it’s only in recent months that Reds all over the …
