Is James Milner a Good Left-Back?

Xabi Alonso, Thanks for the Memories

Xabi Alonso, Thanks for the Memories

"Woah-oo-ah-ah-ooo We've got the best midfield in the world! We've got Xabi Alonso, Momo Sissoko, Gerrard and Mascherano-ooo"
The good old days eh? As we enter the crunch period in the Premier League, Liverpool fans are going to have to prepare their goodbyes for Xabi Alonso, a man of beauty, on and off the ball. He may have left Liverpool in 2009, but after 149 appearances, 15 goals, 28 assists and 2 unforgettable victories in the Champions League and …
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 …
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 …
Was Jordan Henderson the Balance Weight for Liverpool FC?

Was Jordan Henderson the Balance Weight for Liverpool FC?

It’s true what they say you know. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder. I’ve been pretty vocal in the past about my concerns surrounding Jordan Henderson operating in the number 6 role for Liverpool but it’s clear as day he’s been missed in recent matches. In games against Sunderland, Plymouth (admittedly with a shadow starting XI) and Southampton the midfield have looked lethargic, pedestrian and predictable. The complete opposite of what we’ve come to expect from a Jurgen Klopp …
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 …
Analysing Emre Can's Performance Against Sunderland

Analysing Emre Can's Performance Against Sunderland

The disappointing 2-2 draw against Sunderland was the first Premier League match Liverpool have been without Jordan Henderson all season. The captain has been a bit of a divisive figure amongst fans since Jurgen Klopp moved him to a slightly more withdrawn role, which has seen him operate as a number 6. He's expected to break up play, cover the space vacated by the attacking full-backs and start attacks. He does the former two aspects of that role well but …
Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Liverpool FC: Let's See How Far We've Come

Perspective is often the rarest of commodities in football. Swept up in the bustling action of the season, results are often what matter the most. The mood of a fanbase is determined by the way their team is playing, and more importantly, whether or not they won their last three games. Winning three in a row; now that’s grounds for celebration. Losing three in a row, and the mood will be one of despair. Anything in between – and it’s …
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 …
