A Case For Selling Jordan Henderson

A Case For Selling Jordan Henderson

I am a Jordan Henderson fan. I do not dislike him as a player or person in any way. My argument for selling him here is purely business, and I believe would be in the best interest of both the player and club. Jordan Henderson has been a fine player for LFC since Kenny Dalglish bought him from Sunderland in 2011 for £16 million. In Henderson’s first season, Dalglish often shunted him out wide, thus squandering his talent as a …
Magic Coutinho Impresses Origi

Magic Coutinho Impresses Origi

As I sit down to write this, there are actual people of intelligence preparing to watch David Moyes' Sunderland take on Arsenal in the hope that the Mackems will eke out some kind of result. This is the kind of entirely avoidable madness that leads to dark bouts of depression. To compound the lunacy, the same people will probably have one eye on Everton's attempts against the Gunners on the final day. If anything, expecting an Evertonian gift is the …
Henderson Injury Uncertainty Typifies The Season

Henderson Injury Uncertainty Typifies The Season

Yesterday, I shared my own foolishness with you all in an altruistic attempt to spare the lovely readers and listeners of this column the needless torment I had inflicted on myself by engaging earnestly with the relentless tales of players in and players out at Anfield. It was a lamentable episode in your columnist's recent history and one I'd have been happy to keep quiet, but there's a greater good here, damn it. This is public-service broadcasting and the moral …

This article will look at five core candidates from across the team to assess the question: who is Liverpool’s most important player?

Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

Liverpool lack imagination to overcome Hull City

It is fair to say that Liverpool have been a disappointment at the start of 2017. They have been knocked out of both domestic cups with losses to Wolves in the FA Cup and Southampton in the EFL Cup. Along with the poor form in the cup Liverpool have yet to win a league match this year with draws against Manchester United, Sunderland and Chelsea and a loss to Swansea City. Prior to the turn of the year there was …

Sunderland 2 Liverpool 2 - I'm Furious With You All!

Sunderland 2 Liverpool 2 - I'm Furious With You All!

Heads have gone. Absolutely gone. Liverpool drew 2-2 with one of the worst sides in recent Premiership history and the people are furious. Come full time, Twitter and Facebook became a modern day version of George Orwell’s Two Minute Hate. ‘How typical of us to beat City and then not beat a Moyes side!’ ‘Good riddance, Lucas!’ ‘That’s the league gone! We’ll never catch Chelsea now!’ I read those words on the night of the Sunderland game (that being the …
Mignolet is Predictably Calm

Mignolet is Predictably Calm

I want you to prepare yourself, dear reader, because it's time for Simon Mignolet to speak and, following his recent chicken kebab revelations, literally anything could happen here. Although it probably won't, because Simon is a very nice chap and, if we're honest, a little, well, dull. His take on the set-back at Sunderland is predictably by-the-numbers. "We wanted to win, unfortunately that didn’t happen, although we had the chances to do so,” Mignolet told Liverpoolfc.com. “It’s tough to take, …

Observations from Liverpool's disappointing draw against Sunderland

Observations from Liverpool's disappointing draw against Sunderland

Liverpool followed up their hard fought 1-0 victory against Manchester City with a disappointing 2-2 draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. The Reds took the lead twice but failed to hold on and gifted the home side two penalties. Sunderland did well defensively but it was Klopp's men who seemed to lack concentration, possibly because of tiredness having played two games in less than 48 hours, and really failed to deliver. Chelsea now go into their match against Tottenham …
