Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

I’ll warn you, this is a bit of a sob story and I am absolutely looking for sympathy. As a “southern softie”, what more do you expect? When it comes to being a Liverpool supporter from the south of England, I can assure you that the hour or so after losing to Man United is one of the most hideous as a Red. I’m sure it’s pretty grim for you too, wherever you are in the world, but I’m feeling …
Liverpool in Crisis? Really?

Liverpool in Crisis? Really?

One thing that identifies Liverpool supporters and possibly sets us apart from others is the sheer range of emotions when it comes to following the club. For example, you’ll often hear talk of us ‘being by far the greatest team the world has ever seen’ even when we languish in 7th place with a solitary victory in seven games. On the other hand, there are people who are talking like this is the worst Liverpool side/manager/owners the club have had in …
Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Jordan Henderson. League Cup Winner 2012, Europa League Runner Up 2016, Audi Cup Runner Up 2017 & Serial Young Player of the Year Award Winner. His honours list reads like a small pack of Revels. Yet somewhat amazingly, despite continuing to divide opinion and never really cementing his position as a winner, Henderson is a man who continues to defy critics and has somehow managed to work himself into the role of Captain for both club and country. For Liverpool, …
A Banquet Without Wine - Book Review

A Banquet Without Wine - Book Review

A Banquet Without Wine by Anthony Stanley Book Review by Shane Clancy for AnfieldIndex.com This was a monumental undertaking for Anthony Stanley. The book provides a fast-moving, yet brilliantly detailed history of our great club in the Premier League era. First things first - there is only one specific requirement to guarantee your love of this book; you must be a Liverpool fan. Jeez, even if you’re just a football fan that should do it. Anthony has made a pretty …
The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …
Liverpool's Recent History With The Opening Weekend

Liverpool's Recent History With The Opening Weekend

This weekend, Liverpool get back into the swing of competitive action with their ‘opening day’ fixture against Arsenal. Of course, it’s not the opening day, as the Reds meet the Gunners on Sunday afternoon, making it more of an ‘opening weekend’ game. Still, the excitement and buzz will be there to see as Premier League football returns once more. There’s something special about the opening weekend though, in the sense that results are harder to predict than any other time …
Daniel Agger - The Great Dane

Daniel Agger - The Great Dane

When the news broke last week that Daniel Agger was going to retire aged just 31, I was devastated. Here stands a player, who was a personal hero of mine, so cruelly robbed of what could have been the finest of careers, due to the failings of his body. It's a narrative of the nearly moments, of wondering what quite could have been, for one of the most talented defensive players the club has signed this century. Whenever anyone discusses …
Have Liverpool FC let the Academy down?

Have Liverpool FC let the Academy down?

*"Baby I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight (I love cheap thrills) But I don't need no money as long as I can feel the beat. Cheap thrills, Yeah I love those cheap thrills..." An acapella version of the Sia song rings out around the bathroom as he finishes his morning shave. "John, is that you singing again?"* Since Fenway Sports Group bought the club in 2011 they've been trying to beat the system and yet they've neglected, …
Liverpool's Mechanical Failure

Liverpool's Mechanical Failure

Since Liverpool last won the Champions League in 2005, it has gone through five managers in Rafa Benitez, Roy Hodgson, Kenny Dalglish, Brendan Rodgers, and now Jurgen Klopp. 06/07 season was the last time Liverpool have showed their dominance in European football, and 2013/2014 was the most recent surge in hopes for an elusive league title, with the previous charge coming six seasons before. Just like the upcoming season, Liverpool Football Club have been in a constant rebuilding process since …
Is Lucas Leiva'd?

Is Lucas Leiva'd?

Liverpool's number twenty one Lucas Leiva, what can I say about him in this piece, that has not already been said about him already by numerous other writers over the past nine years? Everyone has an opinion on Lucas, some good, most bad and some indifferent. He has often bore the brunt from fans for the poor results Liverpool have suffered while he was in the team. He is for some fans Liverpool's scape goat. Liverpool have a shit game …
