Liverpool FC - If You Build It, They Will Stay

Liverpool FC - If You Build It, They Will Stay

Nothing great ever happens in team sports without the supporting cast playing some role on many different levels. Being in the background is usually no longer enough. The supporting cast now needs to contribute more than just hang around waiting to be dragged to titles. Countless times in recent history we have seen the Most Valuable Player in a season miss out on the grand prize despite their stellar performances. In a world were loyalty is now the exception rather …
The Latest In A Long Line Of Deadly Duo’s: Firmino and Salah

The Latest In A Long Line Of Deadly Duo’s: Firmino and Salah

Liverpool have long been blessed with tremendous attacking partnerships; there was Emile Heskey and Michael Owen, the brilliance of Torres and Gerrard, the magic of SAS and this season’s elusive ‘Fab Four’. Now, following the departure of Philippe Coutinho last month, a new partnership beckons for The Reds. Joining from Atletico Madrid, Fernando Torres formed one of the most deadly partnerships in the Premier League alongside Steven Gerrard, netting 54 times between them by the close of the 2007/08 season …
Liverpool FC: A lack of winners

Liverpool FC: A lack of winners

In February 2007 I met the woman who would go on to become my wife. Very quickly she was introduced to my obsession with football, and Liverpool Football Club in particular. Thankfully for me, she got onboard with this obsession almost from the off and has gone on to become a Liverpool supporter in her own right. During our time together she’s been a regular matchday companion for me at Anfield and even gone to the match without me on …
Daniel Sturridge, Thank You & Good Luck

Daniel Sturridge, Thank You & Good Luck

It's been a tough time of late for Daniel Sturridge, in and out of the side over the past few seasons because of injuries, and a change of system; but any time Sturridge was in the side, or came off the bench, there was always a glimmer of hope for Liverpool when in a sticky patch. As one of the most clinical and predatory strikers ever seen at Anfield, fans knew, all it took was one chance, and Sturridge would …
Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

Why Liverpool Will Always Be Bigger Than Any One Player

It took all of eight minutes to remind Anfield of one very special fact. Liverpool Football Club is bigger than any player. Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain’s driving run, emphatic finish and impassioned celebration perfectly emblemised the oft-romanticised ‘Liverpool spirit’ – the idea that you don’t buy a great player, rather a player becomes great in the cauldron that is Anfield. Like a gladiatorial pit in Rome; Anfield’s coliseum atmosphere is what decides the fate of its competitors, not their previous reputation or …
The Presence Of Virgil van Dijk Will Lift Those Around Him

The Presence Of Virgil van Dijk Will Lift Those Around Him

Something that stands out immediately when you look at Virgil van Dijk is the authority he possesses. There is a real aura about him. It is something that has always been evident with the Rolls Royce centre-back, whether it be as a youngster at FC Groningen, someone way ahead of the rest at Celtic or during an outstanding three-year spell at Southampton. The 26-year-old has only made one appearance for Liverpool, so going overboard can risk future mocking, but he …
Losing Phil Coutinho is Inevitable

Losing Phil Coutinho is Inevitable

“Liverpool will never progress if they keep selling their best players”. 
We’ve all heard this argument before. And on many levels, it has merit. How could you possibly hope to improve if you are forever losing your best player? How can you be strong when you are continually weakening your team? And what a weakening it would be, because to lose Phil Coutinho is to lose arguably the most gifted player in the Premier League. Sure, there will …
Daniel Sturridge - Not Done Yet

Daniel Sturridge - Not Done Yet

Daniel Sturridge is quite possibly the biggest what if in recent Liverpool football club history. Last week the still only 28-year-old scored his 100th (and 101st) goal in club football. 71 of those goals have come in his 131 matches for the Reds over the last six years. This sentence tells you all about the striker's career - a lot of goals scored in very few games. Sturridge arrived at Anfield together with Philippe Coutinho in the winter of 2013, …
Mohamed Salah: Signing of the Summer

Mohamed Salah: Signing of the Summer

There were a number of stellar performances from Liverpool at the London Stadium on Saturday as Jurgen Klopp's side dispatched West Ham 4-1, but none more so than a certain Egyptian forward. Mohamed Salah delivered another two goals for The Reds, showing a composed, cool head in front of goal to cap off an impressive solo performance and take his tally to 12 goals in 17 appearances in all competitions since his summer switch from AS Roma - a record …
Is Naby Keita the Phil Coutinho Replacement?

Is Naby Keita the Phil Coutinho Replacement?

Will this transfer window end? First Liverpool were getting van Dijk, then they were apologising for getting van Dijk, then they were getting Keita, then they weren’t getting Keita at any price. Salah seemed to take a millennium, Liverpool effectively traded a bang-average Kevin Stewart for a potential-laden Andy Robertson, and the future of Phillipe Coutinho seemed comfortable, given the lack of real disruption. And then, it didn’t seem all that comfortable. So, should Liverpool give into Phillipe Coutinho’s demands …
