Glen Johnson: His season so far | Stats

Glen Johnson has come out in recent days to say how he's a massive fan of Brendan Rodgers (who isn't at the moment?!) and that he wants to stay at Liverpool for years to come. As a solid and reliable right-back for the majority of his Liverpool career, Johnson is hitting the milestone of 50 caps for England, but has had an up and down season for the Reds. Injuries have got in the way of what could have been …
The Taming of Luis Suarez

The Taming of Luis Suarez

There’s a scene in the highly acclaimed political thriller series ‘House of Cards’, where the antihero protagonist Francis Underwood is being told by his soon-to-be adversary Raymond Tusk as to which attributes of Francis’ makes him the compelling candidate for a major role in the White House (bear with me as I try my best to not inadvertently leak out obvious spoilers from this excellent series). Francis is told, rather directly, that his penchant for pragmatism, ruthlessness to execute, a …

Daniel Sturridge: Preserving Greatness

Daniel Sturridge: Preserving Greatness

“Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.” - Lou Holtz.
As he caresses the pitch into submission to his talent on the ball, Daniel Sturridge is rapidly proving all the doubters wrong. Signing from Chelsea for £12million at the dawn of 2013, his signing was met with eyebrows raising across the Liverpool fan base, while other sat in excitement at the prospect Brendan Rodgers had acquired. Having …
Joe Allen Stars in Late Cameo vs Swansea

Joe Allen Stars in Late Cameo vs Swansea

Joe Allen is a player in whom Brendan Rodgers has invested a lot. Whilst at Swansea, the Welshman was a mainstay of their Championship play-off winning side, and the diminutive midfielder’s performances brought lavish praise from his manager.
...while he is not at the same level, he is that Xavi or Iniesta type of player. He’s 5ft 7in, not physically tall or great in stature but he is brilliant on the ball, has great intelligence and good mobility.
Liverpool FC: Putting Flesh on Your Dreams

Liverpool FC: Putting Flesh on Your Dreams

And some day soon, maybe next May, maybe the one after or the one after that, a middle-aged man in a suit will wade through a sea of scarves in front of the Kop, pick one up and tie it around his neck like a docker, make a defiant fist with his left hand and hold the Holy Grail in the other, and stare at us the way the risen Christ looked at is disciples, eyes blazing with an intensity …

Attention Liverpool Fans, It's time to Support & Believe

Attention Liverpool Fans, It's time to Support & Believe

Gerrard is the reason we’re conceding so many goals… No, Johnson is the reason we’re conceding so many goals… No, Agger is the issue… Nope, it’s definitely Jon Flanagan’s fault… It’s definitely Kolo Toure being useless isn’t it. That’s the reason… Just listen to yourselves for a moment. Liverpool won a seven goal thriller to win 4-3 with another vital three points in the bag and yet the fans reaction is one of frustration and confusion… Never mind the fact …
I'm on the Rodgers 12 point plan to Redemption

I'm on the Rodgers 12 point plan to Redemption

Are you with me? We are 12 league games away from something remarkable. The door to the riches of the Champions League is firmly open to us, it’s beckoning us in like the hostess of our favourite bar or nightclub. We would be foolish not to take up the offer, after all, who knows when we will get the chance again. But what is it we really want? Will we just sit back and take the easy way to the …
Reject, Rewards & Rodgers

Reject, Rewards & Rodgers

Whilst I appreciate that the title may be somewhat provocative if you look through the current Liverpool team, you will see many players who, at one point or another have been classed as rejects. In fact, from the team that played Fulham in the last Barclays Premier League game then there are only 3 players I can think of who do not fall under that category. Now the point of this piece is not to moan about the quality of …
