Liverpool: Dreams and the Songs we Sing

Liverpool: Dreams and the Songs we Sing

Why do we sing our songs? Is it for nostalgia. Is it to give confidence to the players, to reassure each other? Is it to intimidate the opposition? Maybe it’s all of those things, but after taking the title back to Anfield, we sing because it’s fact. Again. We conquered all of Europe, would be met with an eye roll a couple of seasons ago. Liverpool living in the past. Now, shouting ALLEZ, ALLEZ, ALLEZ, is effectively a public service …
Liverpool Fans: From Doubters to Winners

Liverpool Fans: From Doubters to Winners

It’s always different than how you imagined it. Because imagination can’t possibly predict every emotion. The almost-overwhelming nerves in the build-up, the way your eyes close when the first rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone resounds throughout the Wanda Metropolitano, the sensation of suddenly being eight feet in the air when the ref blows for the penalty. Words fail supporters of football clubs at those kinds of moments, and for Liverpool, a team so bound by fighting the unwavering tide, …
Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Liverpool FC: From 4-1 Humiliation To Champions Of Europe

Define ignominious: Liverpool's 4-1 defeat away to Tottenham in October 2017. That dank autumn afternoon was Jurgen Klopp's nadir as Reds manager, at a time when the first few doubts were creeping on about this most charismatic of men. While he wasn't under the kind of pressure many managers find themselves under at low points, frustration was clear and the German was in a rare fragile position. The loss at Wembley left Liverpool sitting ninth in the Premier League, with …
Klopp Enters The Pantheon Of Liverpool Greats

Klopp Enters The Pantheon Of Liverpool Greats

What a night. Liverpool are the Champions of Europe for the 6th time, following a hard-fought, stoically defensive 2-0 win over Spurs. This is a night that will go down in the history of the club, and a night that finally breaks Jürgen Klopp’s duck as Liverpool manager, winning his first trophy for the club. There have been several seminal moments in Klopp’s tenure. I’ve spoken before (including at the time) about Liverpool’s 4-1 defeat to Spurs as a pivotal …
Player Ratings for the Six Time European Cup Winning Reds

Player Ratings for the Six Time European Cup Winning Reds

Told Gags I'd do the ratings regardless of the result, but come on, thank fuck we won. Just back from the parade myself. Did you make it? Not a big surprise if you did, given there were 750,000 fans of the Reds knocking about. Oh, apologies. 750,000 fans of the SIX TIME EUROPEAN CUP WINNING REDS. If you think this is going to be anything other than a cluster of 10's and a love letter to each individual that graced …
Spurs 4-1 Liverpool - a ­Perfect Storm that won't be Repeated

Spurs 4-1 Liverpool - a ­Perfect Storm that won't be Repeated

A lot of fear around the match at the weekend seems to stem from it being a final and anything can happen. Spurs are a dangerous team with many players who can beat you with a moment of magic if you allow them space and time. Kane, Lucas, Son, Alli even Eriksen - they have all been match winners for the North Londoners at times this season. Klopp has lost to them before, and it was a humiliating defeat. These …
Liverpool's Biggest Night Since Istanbul

Liverpool's Biggest Night Since Istanbul

What stage of your life were you at on May 25th, 2005, when Liverpool enjoyed the most famous night in their great history? On a personal note, I was on the verge of taking my A-Levels, and can confirm that the following day was not spent in exam mode, but instead spent suffering from the most severe hangover imaginable. Adrenaline was through the roof, new heroes were made in an instant and anything felt possible during the hours after Jerzy …
Liverpool Player Ratings: End of Season Edition - Part Two

Liverpool Player Ratings: End of Season Edition - Part Two

Here we go again, back for part two as I conclude my player ratings for Liverpool's season. You can find part one here, whilst Anfield Index Pro subscribers can find Adam, Tom and I guided by the lovely Kay as we join together for a Rate, Don't Hate, end of season special two-parter. Virgil van Dijk was, unsurprisingly, the high scorer in part one of these ratings, but will anyone else achieve a perfect ten as we delve into the …
Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

The legendary 4-0 win over Barcelona will be remembered for so many reasons by Liverpool supporters. The impact of Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum will rightly be at the top of the list when the game is looked back on in decades to come, following their heroic double apiece. Similarly, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s outrageous assist for Origi’s tie-clinching strike will go down in legend for its audacity and speed of thought. Alisson’s expertise in the Reds goal helped keep his side …
Liverpool vs Spurs Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool vs Spurs Preview - Potential Key Battles

Who would have thought that we’d end up here, huh? After an absolutely tumultuous twelve months for Liverpool, the Reds are back in the same position that they were this time last year, in a Champions League final. Whilst it would be unfair to suggest that Liverpool’s entire season rests on the final game of it, it is true that Liverpool’s hopes of winning their first of silverware under Jürgen Klopp this year do rest on it. So what are …
