The Souness Years - Rebuilding & Rob Jones (Part 3)

In this third instalment of our Souness Years series, we delve deeper into the behind-the-scenes activities during the turbulent Souness era of the early 90s. You can find the first two parts here: Part 1 Part 2 RONNIE WHELAN: You had a team now that wasn’t stable and united. There was a lot of individual play. Different players were doing different things. They weren’t fitting into a system. JOHN BARNES: When Kenny bought me and Peter Beardsley into the side, …

The Souness Years - In Their Own Words: Part 2 - Too Much Too Soon?

Part 1 - The Souness Years: In Their Own Words - The Change of Guard was released earlier this week.

I was impetuous …

The Souness Years - In Their Own Words: Part 1 - The Change of Guard

The rise and fall of Liverpool football club is one of the most unique in the footballing world. Built ‘up and up and up’, in both Bill Shankly’s words, actions and design, Liverpool dominated British and European football for the best part of two decades. In the eighteen years marking 1973 to 1991, Liverpool finished in the top two of the English top flight no fewer than seventeen times and were crowned champions of England eleven times. They also collected …
Liverpool's Best Transfer Window: 1987 or 1999?

Liverpool's Best Transfer Window: 1987 or 1999?

If, like me, you are somewhat fatigued by the daily transfer window saga being played out across all platforms of media and need to take a step back from it all, here's something I hope will help. To escape the whole shenanigans and rollercoaster of arguments, discussions and debate as to whether or not Liverpool will have a successful summer of transfer business, I've took a step back in time to two of Liverpool’s best ever transfer windows. And yes, …
Five Players LFC Would Happily Welcome Back Now

Five Players LFC Would Happily Welcome Back Now

Alan Kennedy  The left-back scored two European Cup winning goals - need I say more? It was obvious this shortlist would contain a left-back and given there's been very few who have made the position their own in the Premier League era, it's no surprise I went for a solid performer of the past. John Arne Riise is perhaps the best left-back Liverpool have had since the turn of the Millennium and was a close contender but Kennedy was part …
Liverpool's Legacy Needs New Paint

Liverpool's Legacy Needs New Paint

Legacy. Heritage. History. For an enterprise that had reached the zenith of excellence, conquering all more than once, yesteryear glories can be very heavy on its shoulders. It is almost suffocating for the same enterprise to rise above cold dark times. The sense of entitlement endeared through our legacy, our heritage, our history, can only make us myopic in our quest for achieving the same heights of past glories. "It's bound to happen. We can win it again. We did …
Return of the Jedi: Ian Rush

Return of the Jedi: Ian Rush

"A Jedi Knight? Jeez, I'm out of it for a little while, everyone gets delusions of grandeur!" Deal with it Han Solo, he’s definitely a Jedi! A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, Everton thought they were striking back. They almost did. They had the 1984/85 season where they amassed 90 points and won the league with a 13 point gap over the course of 42 matches. They won the European Cup Winners' Cup and lost in …
Klopp is The Man To Unite Liverpool's Divided Fanbase

Klopp is The Man To Unite Liverpool's Divided Fanbase

During my 21 years on the planet, the Liverpool fanbase has always been a divergent lot. Chasms of opinion have existed over matters both trivial and sincere. In the age of Football Twitter the various factions of Liverpool support have become increasingly clear and ghettoised, united and divided by opinions on various issues of support, players, managers, or ownership. However, these divisions did not always exist, and I believe they have only manifested from an era of unsuccessful football. And, for …

Ian Rush Liverpool …
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 …
