Liverpool FC | Is an ‘outdated’ system the way forward?

Upon Kenny Dalglish’s return as Liverpool manager in January 2011, many supposed experts suggested that the club legend had been ‘out of the game’ for too long.  Whatever that term is meant to mean, Dalglish soon proved that it was nothing to worry about.  Improved performances led to improved results as Liverpool made a late surge for 4th place, something which was a distant dream during the nightmare that was Roy Hodgson’s spell as manager. Primarily, Dalglish set his team …
Liverpool V Swansea | Football Is A Simple Game? A Tactical Preview

Liverpool V Swansea | Football Is A Simple Game? A Tactical Preview

The great man Shankly once said "football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple". Was there a truer word ever said? This week is Liverpool V Swansea City, two sides who really like to get the ball down and pass and move. In Kenny Dalglish and Brendan Rogers we have two managers who try to instill a certain …
Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Welcome to the friendly derby. However, judging by the amount of red and yellow cards in this fixture over the years the players don’t seem to follow the maxim of ‘friendly derby’. It’s Everton against Liverpool, a game that needs no introduction. Everton go into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Man City and with a last 5 game record (LWDWL) that screams inconsistency. It’s generally thought that Everton have started the season badly yet if …
Liverpool vs Wolves - Match preview

Liverpool vs Wolves - Match preview

Liverpool are set to entertain Wolverhampton on the back of progressing to the fourth round of the Carling cup, but with two disappointing league performances at Stoke and Spurs. Mick McCarthy's Wolves side have made an impressive start to their season taking seven points from their first five games, but sit two places lower than Liverpool who also sit on seven points in eighth place. Both side’s defences will both be under scrutiny, with both teams on minus goal difference. Liverpool …
Liverpool FC vs. Sunderland AFC Preview

Liverpool FC vs. Sunderland AFC Preview

The Liverpool fans will be expecting a good start to the season after such a huge turnaround under Kenny Dalglish last season and the new signings have added a new level of optimism. Andy Carroll is now fully-fit and has enjoyed a successful pre-season, scoring three goals in six games. Opening day victories have been hard to come by for the Reds in previous years, winning only four of the previous 10. Last season started with a dogged 1-1 draw …

Pre-Match build-up: Arsenal v Liverpool

After the convincing 3-0 win against Manchester City on Monday night, Liverpool will aim to make it two wins in a week against top-four sides as they travel to the Emirates Stadium this Sunday. The two sides met on the opening day of this year's Premier League season at Anfield in Roy Hodgson's first league match in charge of Liverpool, where the scoreline ended 1-1 …
LFC vs Steve Bruce Round 20...

LFC vs Steve Bruce Round 20...

This sunday, Liverpool go head to head to head with Steve Bruce (the manager) for the 16th time in the Premier League and the 20th time overall. Over the years it has been notoriously difficult for the reds to take all 3 points away from these games, in fact, it has only ever happened FOUR TIMES. Now I don't know about anyone else, but for me that's just not good enough, especially when he has only ever managed Wigan, Birmingham …
