José Enrique effectiveness vs. Wigan

José Enrique effectiveness vs. Wigan

Quality left-backs at Liverpool have been a premium down the years but the acquisition of José Enrique has proven to be an excellent signing. Defensively, he is everything you need in a full-back; he's strong so holds attackers off with ease, calm and confident on the ball, quick, his positional sense is second-to-none and he knows exactly when to put his foot into a tackle. At £6 million, 'El Toro' is quickly becoming one of the signings of the season. …
Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

As we approach the January transfer window Liverpool will be looking to bring in a few new faces to the club and whether those players are stars or up and comers we will find out. As you look at the team closely you are able to find those areas in which we are in need and I will be going through that specifically. To start with we look at our goalkeeper big Pepe,the 3 time golden glove winner, has started …
Adam, Downing & Henderson: New boys' Graduation Day due

Adam, Downing & Henderson: New boys' Graduation Day due

[caption id="attachment_4728" align="aligncenter" width="465" caption="Time to step up in Red"][/caption] I might be witnessing a graduation on Sunday.  I hope to see new boys coming of age in a Red shirt. No, not our much criticised, 6 ft plus, work in progress, AC.  His time will come. My own theory is that he needs to come off the bench with 30 minutes to go, in a tight game, when we really need a goal. He needs an Olympiakos moment, a West …
Torres vs Suarez (or why can't we have both?)

Torres vs Suarez (or why can't we have both?)

Recently there have been rumours  surrounding Fernando Torres and a potential move back to Liverpool, almost a year after he went to Chelsea for £50 million. The consensus from most Liverpool fans is that there’s no chance we will take him back. But hang on a second. Is there really a huge difference between Torres and Liverpool’s star man, Luis Suarez, this season? And would linking up with Suarez not potentially bring back the Torres we used to know and love? So far this …

If they beat us on Sunday they could move …
Opta Stat Attack | Andy Carroll's time at Liverpool FC

Opta Stat Attack | Andy Carroll's time at Liverpool FC

Most Liverpool supporters have made their minds up on Andy Carroll. A lot of rival club supporters believe he's been one of the worst transfers in recent history, arguably the worst (well, maybe the best if you're a Newcastle supporter). However it is way too early in his career to be labelling him with such a moniker. He has only started for Liverpool FC on 13 occasions in the Premier League, scoring four times. Do you believe this is enough …
Liverpool's MVP: Pepe Reina | Opta Stats

Liverpool's MVP: Pepe Reina | Opta Stats

Nearly but not quite. That was the 2008/9 Barclays Premiere League season which made the hope in Red's hearts rise so very high. Certainly did mine. Saturday 14th March, as I entered the channel tunnel returning from a trip to Rotterdam, I was one happy red. I'd just had a text confirming a 4-1 humilation (to quote the BBC) of our bitterest foes in their own backyard. And was that right? Dossena had applied the coup de grace? Good times! …

Liverpool FC 1 QPR 0 | Quick Opta Match Stats

Finally, Liverpool FC managed to win at Anfield after four consecutive stalemates against United, City, Norwich & Swansea. Liverpool needed to bounce back from their undeserved loss to Fulham on Monday night and they just about got there in the end. After missing a whole host of chances in the first half Liverpool scored immediately from the re-start thanks to Luis Suarez' header. However Liverpool FC then played on the back foot for a lot of the second half not …

Liverpool V QPR | Tactical Stats & Graphical Preview

Not a great week for Liverpool Football Club. There is nothing more frustrating than an undeserved defeat. Add to that a spurious F.A. charge for failing to control your players, and an investigation into your lead striker for a provocative hand gesture, and you can quite comfortable say it hasn't been the best of weeks. I'm not going to go into the above charges, suffice to say, for both instances, there has been a number of similar incidents of such …
