Maxi Rodríguez | The unluckiest man in Liverpool

Maxi Rodríguez | The unluckiest man in Liverpool

[caption id="attachment_3881" align="alignleft" width="263" caption="Maxi Rodríguez"][/caption]  Maxi, Maxi Rodríguez runs down the wing for me. Well, not this season he doesn't. The subject of one of the Kop's favoured songs and the hero of the closing games of the last season, Maxi Rodríguez has played only 13 minutes in the Premier League in 2011/12. It seems hard to fathom for someone who seemed to be so integral to the way the 'new' Liverpool played as the 2010/11 campaign wound down, …
Three jinxes ended as Liverpool FC defeat Stoke City at the Britannia

Three jinxes ended as Liverpool FC defeat Stoke City at the Britannia

In football it is a lovely feeling when a jinx is broken. So how great a night was it for Liverpool FC supporters when three jinxes were broken in one night? It was an excellent result for Liverpool FC, especially since they didn't deserve to lose at the Britannia earlier in the season after totally dominating the game. In that game they dominated possession 72.7% to 27.3% and dominated shots by 16-2 but still lost! Some basic stats from the …
Suarez & Downing | Statistically compared to rivals | Liverpool FC

Suarez & Downing | Statistically compared to rivals | Liverpool FC

A lot has been said about the misgivings of Liverpool FC in-front of goal so far this season. A lot of people are laying blame on lack of creativity (Downing & co) and also cursing the inadequacies in-front of goal (Suarez's misses). This article will look at both of these players in comparison with their rivals as well as looking at Liverpool FC's stats and how they compare with the teams they are rivalling or wish to be rivalling in …
Statistical Player Profile: José Enrique

Statistical Player Profile: José Enrique

Liverpool has long had a problem with the left-back position ever since John Arne Riise left for Roma in 2008. Yes we had Fabio Aurelio and Emiliano Insua but neither succeeded in stamping their mark on the position, with injuries plaguing the one and the other just simply failing to live up to expectations …
Steven Gerrard | Effectiveness vs. MUFC

Steven Gerrard | Effectiveness vs. MUFC

It was strange to see Steven Gerrard scoring after such a long absence. Strange but excellent. He returned to the starting line-up against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon after sitting on the sidelines for seven months. Funnily enough, his last start was against United where he excelled in a deeper midfield role. This time, Gerrard was given an attacking freedom that suits him so well. For the most part of the first-half, Steven was out on the right for protect …
A Tale Of Two Cities | Liverpool V Manchester

A Tale Of Two Cities | Liverpool V Manchester

To borrow a well known opening to a classic book; “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair”. One year on there cannot be a bigger contrast in …
The Saturday Showdown | Liverpool Vs United

The Saturday Showdown | Liverpool Vs United

What is undoubtedly the biggest game in England, and one of the biggest in world football returns this Saturday and Liverpool will be looking to ensure that United's recent Anfield hell continues. Its still early doors this season but this game is a definite 6 pointer, should Liverpool win they would close the gap on their rivals to 3 points, lose and United will extend the gap to 9 points. Given United's flying start to the season, for Liverpool to …
Everton vs Liverpool - Match preview

Everton vs Liverpool - Match preview

One of the biggest games of any Liverpool season is just around the corner. For those that don’t know (hardly anyone, probably no one) but we are making the short trip across Stanley Park to Everton’s Goodison Park. Like any other Merseyside derby, we haven't been short of something to talk about. Probably the main point on this occasion is the selection of referee Martin Atkinson. The Yorkshireman has had no problem dishing out a card this season, already brandishing …
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 …
Dirk Kuyt | The man for the big occasion

Dirk Kuyt | The man for the big occasion

After spending big in consecutive transfer windows, Liverpool finally have strength in depth in attacking positions.  With this though, comes selection problems and, so far this season, the man to miss out has been Dirk Kuyt. Formerly one of the first names on the team sheet, Kuyt has only started half of Liverpool’s games so far this season, as Jordan Henderson has been preferred on the right side of midfield and Luis Suarez has mostly played as either a lone striker or alongside Andy Carroll.  …
