The remarkable rise of Liverpool's pre-Klopp Fab Five

The remarkable rise of Liverpool's pre-Klopp Fab Five

Jurgen Klopp is approaching five years as Liverpool manager, which is a frightening sentence to type. Where on earth did the time go? At this point in 2015, Brendan Rodgers was in his final pre-season at Anfield and the Reds were looking to bounce back from the humiliation of a 6-1 defeat away to Stoke. Little did we know at the time, FSG were flirting with Jurgen Klopp during his post-Borussia Dortmund breather, with Rodgers' time all but up. In …
A Look At Lewis For Liverpool

A Look At Lewis For Liverpool

Liverpool are notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to their intentions in the transfer market. After the debacle of the Reds' first attempt to sign Virgil van Dijk from Southampton, which drew the ire of the Saints over the leaking of the Dutchman's intent to only join Liverpool, the club has since kept schtum when it comes to transfer rumours. Fabinho and Takumi Minamino joined the club almost out of the blue, without months of speculation prior to them signing the …
Exciting Times To Be A Red - Drink It In

Exciting Times To Be A Red - Drink It In

The date is Tuesday, 1st May, 1990. Liverpool have beaten Arthur Cox's Derby County 1-0 at Anfield. Having already wrapped up the league title a week prior following a 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers, the Anfield faithful were preparing to witness Steve McMahon lift the trophy up in the air - for the nineteenth time. Such was the bar that Kenny Dalglish's relentless Reds set throughout their heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, winning First Division Championships were no …
Is James Milner better than Gary McAllister?

Is James Milner better than Gary McAllister?

James Milner is a Liverpool legend.  A few months into his career at Anfield, it appeared as though he might’ve been more Joe Cole than he was Gary McAllister. For a period of time, it felt as though a Milner performance was a 6/10 and a yellow card was guaranteed. In his defence, though, this was during the final few months of Brendan Rodgers’ time on Merseyside and most, if not all, players failed to really impress.  But then he …
Why Clutch Mane Deserves Player Of The Year Award

Why Clutch Mane Deserves Player Of The Year Award

There is a school of thought that suggests that Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne is a shoo-in for the P.F.A player of the year award. And there's definitely merit to that argument with the Belgian linchpin laying on a record-equalling 20 Premier League assists, tying with Thierry Henry as statistically the best wing-man in a singular league campaign, as well as scoring 13 goals. However, when you weigh up all the candidates' arguments for the award, Sadio Mane emerges as …
Farewell Dejan Lovren - A Tribute

Farewell Dejan Lovren - A Tribute

Dejan Lovren's six years at Liverpool FC are over, as Zenit St.Petersburg signed the defender for £10.9 million on Monday. There are many reasons as to why Reds should look back on the controversial defender, with fondness. Dejan Lovren debuted for Liverpool against Jurgen Klopp's Borussia Dortmund, in the pre-season of 2014/15. Brendan Rodgers' Reds thrashed the iconic German team by four goals to nil. The Croatian impressed, due to his aggression in the challenge, composure in possession and potency …
Why Liverpool had to sell Danny Ings

Why Liverpool had to sell Danny Ings

Danny Ings is doing exceptionally well for Southampton this season and because of this people want to rewrite history. He scored 22 goals for the season and just missed out on the golden boot. The 28-year-old has scored or assisted in 57% of the matches he’s featured in. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say his goals have helped Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side stay in the Premier League. They could finish as high as 11th, a remarkable achievement for a team …
Adam Lallana and what could've been at Anfield

Adam Lallana and what could've been at Anfield

It shows the measure of the impact that Adam Lallana's departure will have and has had on this Liverpool squad. He was sent on his way with emotional tributes from his teammates and manager alike, with fans also wishing Lallana well in his next venture. Though he leaves with four medals around his neck, including the Champions League and Premier League, it does sort of feel like an Anfield career that was somewhat unfulfilled despite that glittering return of silverware. …
A Full Circle

A Full Circle

I have been a Liverpool fan since 2002 when the football scene in Malaysia was booming. Everyone in school had a favourite English football team. The earliest game I can recall is the one where we lost to Man United 2-1 when the ball went through Dudek's legs to Forlan. Yeah that game! That’s my earliest memory of LFC. From then to now, from Hyypia to Gerrard to Hendo, the journey has been amazing. Other clubs may have seen more …
Lovren Sale Points To Brilliant Liverpool Squad Management

Lovren Sale Points To Brilliant Liverpool Squad Management

News broke on Friday morning that Dejan Lovren is close to signing for Zenit St.Petersburg. The Croatian international, who joined Liverpool in the summer of 2014 from Southampton, will reportedly join the Russian giants for a fee of £10.9M. Lovren, 31, through a combination of Joel Matip and Joe Gomez' good form and injuries only made 15 appearances for the English champions this season and will become -- pending the deal being rubberstamped -- the third player to leave Anfield …
