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 …
Ojo Reckons Young Reds Will Be Fine

Ojo Reckons Young Reds Will Be Fine

Jürgen Klopp has just been telling the assembled hacks that Philippe Coutinho is likely to have some minutes against Southampton and that Joel Matip is close to a return and, to be entirely honest, the world seems like a better place. I'm thinking especially of those poor damaged souls I referred to in this morning's article - the OH DEAR GOD, NOT ANOTHER GAME merchants. The return of our most potent attacking threat alongside our most effective defender will be a …
Observations from Liverpool's draw against Plymouth Argyle

Observations from Liverpool's draw against Plymouth Argyle

A disappointing 0-0 draw at home to Plymouth means the Reds have a tricky replay to contend with in amongst an already difficult month of January. It's something they could have done without but it's our own doing after not showing enough class to finish off the League Two outfit. Liverpool were utterly dominant but did nothing with the ball. They didn't even trouble the Plymouth goalkeeper. It was a glorified defence vs attack training session and there's now a …
The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

The Liverpool Kids - The Future or No Future?

As seasons go, this one has been something of a bonus for those Liverpool players looking to make the break through proper into fully fledged first team players. The arrival of Jurgen Klopp offered a fresh start, and the run in the FA Cup a platform on which to grasp that opportunity and show the boss why they warranted more than just a spot in the shadows going forward. But now as we enter the twilight of a season that …

Diamond in the Rough - Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing vs Swansea

As you may already know I collect pressing stats for every Liverpool Premier League game, I know - what a crazy thing to do - but it's popular, people enjoy the discussions resulting from the stats collection and we're learning a lot about some of the players at Liverpool Football Club. Twitter was adamant that the stats for this game shouldn't be collected, the game should be binned and that I should take the day off from doing this painful task …

Fan Media vs Mainstream Media - The Shaky Head Journalist

It's not often you get chance to compare football  with wrestling without it being a stretch but now feels appropriate. The mid 90's saw the emergence of World Championship Wrestling (WCW), a wrestling company intent on taking on the already established World Wrestling Federation (WWF now known as WWE). Ted Turner, founder of CNN, had an idea. He didn't want to share the market with WWF, he wanted to own the market. Eric Bischoff went about making it a reality. …
Liverpool's Problems

Liverpool's Problems

Liverpool have problems at the minute and that's about the only thing that all of the Liverpool fanbase can agree on at the minute. Every position on the pitch seems to be problematic, and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight or a way to solve these problems before the end of the season. I'm sure if fans read other Liverpool websites they'll see the one thousand and one different writers expressing their opinions and views on where …
Alexandre Lacazette - A Season-Defining Transfer Rumour

Alexandre Lacazette - A Season-Defining Transfer Rumour

Linked with moves to Ligue 1 Champions PSG, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool, Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette was possibly the hottest property of the 2015 summer. The chairman of Lyon, Jean-Michel Aulas, came out in May and seemed to imply if a club were to prise his star asset away from the club it would be for north of £40 million. Coming off the back of his most successful season to date it wasn't such a delusional …
Six Up and Coming Stars to Emerge from the Melwood Youth Academy

Six Up and Coming Stars to Emerge from the Melwood Youth Academy

Liverpool FC boasts one of the strongest youth systems in world football. In contrast to recent polls conducted by Bleacher Report, Givemesport.com, amongst others, who seem to have disregarded the Merseyside club entirely and placed them towards the bottom end of the pile, players such as Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, and Raheem Sterling demonstrate just how wrong these poll-makers are, and that our base at Melwood is as strong as it has ever been. The most recent of emerging professionals …
