The Epic Season of 13/14 | The Story So Far for Liverpool FC

Liverpool – A True Underdog Story (in the making)

Liverpool – A True Underdog Story (in the making)

It’s August 2009 Liverpool travel down to White Hart Lane for the opening game of the Premier League season. Xabi Alonso, Sami Hyypia and Alvaro Arbeloa had all departed Merseyside for pastures new and in came Alberto Aquilani, Glen Johnson and Sotirios Kyrgiakos. Expectation was high after strong previous season with many expecting Liverpool to kick on after narrowly missing out on the title to Manchester United. Liverpool lost the game 2-1, a sign of things to come with the …
Liverpool's Breathtaking Brand of Football Key to Attracting International Fans

Liverpool's Breathtaking Brand of Football Key to Attracting International Fans

The Premier League's popularity is soaring in the United States, where viewers are developing a deep connection with football (or "soccer") as cable providers afford people access to nearly every match. As American fans select teams to follow by the millions, the ongoing fight between top clubs to capture their rabid support is a key battle in an era of cut-throat financial competition. Liverpool's stylistic turnaround and burst up the table, along with their treasured history, make them a sudden …
Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee | The Outgoings

Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee | The Outgoings

Doubters. Something Brendan Rodgers has had to deal with throughout his brief period as Liverpool manager. Whether it be his credentials, his methods, his transfer signings, his bosses, or his vocabulary, there is nothing that has escaped the manager from ridicule. With particular regards to transfers, fans have spoken themselves to death in discussing who to sign, how much they are worth, how Ian Ayre will mess it up, what is a transfer committee, and how come we didn't sign …
Daniel Sturridge | Witness the Brendan Rodgers Effect

Daniel Sturridge | Witness the Brendan Rodgers Effect

Daniel Sturridge was a promising youngster at Manchester City when he first made his name. He didn’t manage to fulfil his potential as he never really got to play in his desired position or some could argue his attitude was not right. Sturridge just wasn’t cutting it at Manchester City even though it was reported that Mark Hughes was keen on keeping the young striker. This is when Chelsea came in for the youngster who had yet to fully show …
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 …
We're Gonna Win The League

We're Gonna Win The League

I have a stat for you… Liverpool, compared with the league table at the same stage in 2008/9, are actually closer to the top of the Premier League now than in that magnificent season. Cast your mind back to 08/09. It was, we thought, the time when most thought Liverpool would once again ascend to the throne in a season in which all those years of bottled hope would finally come good. Alas it wasn’t to be; indeed the club …
The Wool of Lime Street

The Wool of Lime Street

Please note that this is a satirical short story, please read it with that in mind. “Seventy seven quid.” Gareth stared blankly at his train ticket lying in front of him, taunting him as he scanned the price over and over until it blurred into one blotch of ink. Lime Street return to Euston Station. Gareth knew it was his own fault for not getting a coach ticket with his friends, but this one stung not only his wallet, it …
