Luis Suarez Smear campaign in full flow | More Evidence

Luis Suarez Smear campaign in full flow | More Evidence

UPDATE: Sky have now announced Suarez as the winner of the 2011 Goals on Sunday Player of the Year competition.
Liverpool supporters have felt that there has been a smear campaign against Luis Suarez over the last few months.  There was more evidence of this last night with the Sky Sports Player of 2011 online poll.  Someone made a joke, on Twitter at about 9pm that Suarez was so far ahead (I think it was by about 15% at this …
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?

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 …

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 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 …

Graft, Craft and How to Fill

Graft, Craft and How to Fill "The Lucas Role"

Getting the right mix of grafters and crafters is vital to a team's success. A grafter is the type of player who makes up for any failings in natural technical ability through sheer blood, guts and endeavour. Think Dirk Kuyt. On the opposite end of the scale you have crafters, players who have a very high level of technical ability but are are more tactile in their play. Jordan Henderson fits into this box. Liverpool's squad has many players who immediately …
