Liverpool Aren't Ready to be separated from Mama

Liverpool Aren't Ready to be separated from Mama

Like it or not Mamadou Sakho is Liverpool's best centre-back. Stats may say Martin Skrtel is the highest rated defender in the league or Dejan Lovren is the best centre-back in the Premier League but these sites measure goals scored by a defender and blocks as parameters to judge a defender on. With this in mind, you've got to ask the question - why haven't Liverpool started talks on a new deal with the French vice-captain when his current one …
Finding Positives for Liverpool From The 2014/15 Season

Finding Positives for Liverpool From The 2014/15 Season

2014/15 was an absolute stinker for Liverpool FC, no two ways about it. I went through a full range of emotions with Brendan Rodgers; in October I had hope he could turn it around, in November and December I had sympathy that this once strutting peacock was now a broken shell of a man and by February I was back to hope that he could make something of the season. However, by the end of March the realisation had set …
Goalkeepers: Mignolet, Mixes, and the Future (Part 2)

Goalkeepers: Mignolet, Mixes, and the Future (Part 2)

Read Part 1: ‘What Makes a Goalkeeper a Keeper?” here. The One Who Currently Rules with Velvet Gloves – Simon Mignolet If there ever was a player who exhibited traits of Jekyll and Hyde so clearly over a season, it has to be Liverpool’s goalkeeper Simon Mignolet. It’s fair to say that Mignolet would be the first one to put his hand up and say that the first half of the last season was downright abject. He suffered a crisis …
Potential Bundesliga targets for Liverpool FC

Potential Bundesliga targets for Liverpool FC

As many of you may already be aware, I am a keen follower of the German Bundesliga. Just to give you a little background, I grew up with the Armed Forces and around 10 of my formative years were spent in Germany, indeed, I went to Secondary school in Dortmund, hence my fondness of Borussia Dortmund. So yes, I am a Bundesliga fan, but I certainly wouldn’t claim to be a hipster. Anyway, with silly season already under way, here’s …
Liverpool, FSG, Brendan Rodgers and Radiohead 

Liverpool, FSG, Brendan Rodgers and Radiohead 

In the last week when it was leaked to the media that Rodgers was staying at LFC, I was going through my old CD (yes that old!!) collection when I came across the Radiohead album “The Bends”. I decided to re listen and the words in the title track seemed very apt for the current situation at LFC. For the younger viewers or non-fans it starts like this…. Where do we go from here?? The words are coming out all …
Does Milner's arrival condemn Can to another year in defence?

Does Milner's arrival condemn Can to another year in defence?

For the most part of the 2014-15 Premier League season, Emre Can was selected as part of a three-man defensive unit, despite playing in midfield for the majority of his career. The 21-year-old, who made 40 appearances in his maiden season at Anfield in all competitions, is neat and tidy in possession, while he isn’t afraid of throwing himself into tackles. In fact, the German loves the physical side of the game but knows the importance of remaining disciplined, particularly in Brendan …
The Seven Deadly Sins That Plague Liverpool FC

The Seven Deadly Sins That Plague Liverpool FC

It was a far from perfect season to say the least. Some could argue that it was a combination of poor signings, tactical naivety and injuries that were the downfall of Liverpool Football Club. All of which are valid arguments. However, I can't help but wonder how you can go from finishing 2nd to 6th in the space of a season! Something is fundamentally wrong at our beloved club. We’ve fallen from the high graces and the footballing gods have cursed us. As …
Rodgers and the Committee; Friends with Benefits?

Rodgers and the Committee; Friends with Benefits?

The much maligned 'duo' of Brendan Rodgers and the Liverpool transfer committee have taken much criticism over the past 12 months. To summarise it, the Liverpool fan base is pretty much divided by which side of the fence you take refuge on. Are you someone who sympathises with Brendan Rodgers having to find room in his squad for the committee signings? Alternatively, are you someone who finds it bewildering that Rodgers doesn't fully utilise all of the tools afforded to …
FSG and Brendan Rodgers: Back to the drawing board!

FSG and Brendan Rodgers: Back to the drawing board!

The news emerging in the last 12 hours (at the time of writing) saw Brendan Rodgers being given the vote of confidence by the people who matter, Fenway Sports Group. This ideally puts to rest the anxiety of 'will he stay/will he not' debate amongst the fan base and whether in agreement or not, it is best for the club that the decision has been made swiftly and there is clarity of thought going forward. Or is there...? There have …
Brendan Rodgers: Win (back) the Crowd

Brendan Rodgers: Win (back) the Crowd

I’m a big fan of applying movie quotes to aspects of everyday life. I have a Mean Girls reference for almost any situation. This seemed like as good a time as any to quote the 2000 classic Gladiator. “Win the crowd and you will win your freedom”. With Brendan Rodgers set to remain Liverpool manager for the foreseeable future, following an end-of-season post-mortem with Liverpool’s ownership, the Northern Irishman faces a real test to win back the crowd; to convince …
