Will Liverpool Fans Urge On The Reds of Manchester This Sunday?

Will Liverpool Fans Urge On The Reds of Manchester This Sunday?

Liverpool fans have utterly enjoyed Manchester City's rise and United's fall of late. That 'Aguero' moment back in 2012 got us in a frenzy of celebration and jubilation at the fact that Manchester United lost the league title to their bitter rivals. Why United and not City then? They are both Manchester teams after all. No, Liverpool and Manchester United have been fierce rivals for over twenty years, in contrast to City, who have ascended to the top in the last three-to-four seasons. …
Liverpool Need a

Liverpool Need a "Real" Marquee Signing This Summer

It seems to me that a marquee signing means different things depending on who it is you speak to. Some will argue it's already a recognised star, some will say it's a player that takes your team to the next level but the majority of people will say it's an expensive signing. The actual definition of a marquee signing is 'exceptionally popular or skilled'. Adam Lallana is labelled as our summer marquee signing due to the fact he was the …

Rodgers and Balotelli's Last Conversation: A Short Fiction (Maybe)

Brendan Rodgers, manager of Liverpool FC, rustles around his office after the most recent defeat.  A 4-1 drubbing by in-form Arsenal has the gaffer feeling lost, without hope or will to go on.  He battles this sort of self-pity by busying his mind with other things.  By keeping the pain inside, no one else has to know he’s troubled by the loss. Instead, Brendan looks for his Carmex.  “I know I’ve left it ‘round here somewhere.”  His chap stick is …
Five Potential Replacements if Rodgers leaves Liverpool

Five Potential Replacements if Rodgers leaves Liverpool

Five wins on the bounce, including an impressive thirteen matches unbeaten had Liverpool dreaming of a second place finish and an FA Cup winners' medal to show for by the end of this campaign. Catching Chelsea would always be a near-impossible task, however, Brendan's men were nailed on pipping City to the runners-up position. Fast-forward a mere two matches later, and 95 % of reds fans would bite your hands off for fourth place. Yes, that's the beauty (or rather …
Blackburn vs. Liverpool Preview: This or Nothing?

Blackburn vs. Liverpool Preview: This or Nothing?

Over a month ago, Liverpool played out an uninspiring draw at Anfield against Blackburn. Although a typical drab draw, the sun was shining over Merseyside. The tired looking performance did little to dampen spirits or cause concern. Four weeks ago, Liverpool were unbeaten in the league in 2015. They had just been knocked out of the Europa League, but Brendan Rodgers’ side had won their last five league games on the spin, including impressive displays against Manchester City, Tottenham and …
An Ulsterman’s View of our Ulsterman Brendan Rodgers

An Ulsterman’s View of our Ulsterman Brendan Rodgers

As Brendan Rodgers approaches 3 years at the helm of Liverpool Football Club, he has given fans a rollercoaster of a ride. From “nearly” winning the league last season, to the depths of the August to December period this season. Then the hope of a decent run crashed with back to back defeats to top 4 challengers who we needed to take something from. So what will the future hold for my fellow countryman and will he still be at …
The Liverpool Captaincy Contenders: Who Should Be Captain?

The Liverpool Captaincy Contenders: Who Should Be Captain?

The Oxford dictionary gives the definition of a leader as: The person who leads or commands a group, organisation, or country. Now, for the first time in what seems like an eternity, Liverpool Football Club needs a new leader. With Steven Gerrard leaving this summer all eyes will firmly be on manager Brendan Rodgers when it comes to naming his full time captain for next season and beyond. There's no doubt that the new leader will be a different type to Steven. …
Midfielder Week Special: Javier Mascherano - The Mad Dog

Midfielder Week Special: Javier Mascherano - The Mad Dog

There's a great saying that sums up Javier Mascherano: "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog that counts". This sentence really sums the Argentine warrior up because at 5ft and 8.5 inches tall, he isn't your archetypal defensive midfield powerhouse a la Chelsea star Nemanja Matic. Mascherano is a fantastic footballer but most of his power comes from his heart and sheer desire to win.  He will not …
Xabi Alonso: The Pass Master

Xabi Alonso: The Pass Master

We thought it may never happen again. But last weekend we all got to watch Xabi Alonso play at Anfield one last time, as he took to the pitch for Liverpool's all-star charity game and inevitably,  received a standing ovation. Labelled as "the passmaster", the Spaniard arrived at Liverpool young and relatively unknown, developing under Rafa Benitez and left as one of the best midfielders on the planet. Regardless of the underlying reasons of why he prematurely decided to leave, …
Liverpool's General from Grêmio - Lucas Leiva

Liverpool's General from Grêmio - Lucas Leiva

Arriving at Liverpool Football Club in 2007 on the back of an award winning season at Brazilian side Grêmio, the box-to-box midfielder whose forward runs were as footloose as his shoulder-length hair, was signed by Rafa Bentiez to compliment an already impressive midfield contingent. Lucas Leiva was the second Brazilian to play for Liverpool, after Fabio Aurelio, and became the first player from the country to score for the club with this goal against Havant and Waterlooville in the fourth …
