Unfinished Business – Fact! Should Rafa Return to Liverpool?

Unfinished Business – Fact! Should Rafa Return to Liverpool?

I have always held FSG in high regard after their purchase of Liverpool Football Club. The manner in which they despatched their American compatriots, Messers Hicks & Gillett, was stunningly meticulous in it’s execution. Callous, cold and quite frankly ballsy to say the least. They came, saw what they wanted, and grabbed it from right under the noses of the cowboys who had us on the verge of bankruptcy. Initially I was worried with more Americans arriving, and the potential …
Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Many moons ago (roughly ten), last season ended in glorious failure, of sorts, for Liverpool Football Club and its fans. That failure (to get a point against Chelsea/to keep a lead against Palace) was however, very much tempered by the fact that nobody had truly expected us to ever have been in the position which would have made such a heart-wrenchingly tragic collapse possible. Yes, we were buoyed, despite not winning the title; kept afloat by the fact we'd come …
Philippe Coutinho: A shining light in a frustrating season

Philippe Coutinho: A shining light in a frustrating season

Philippe Coutinho was recently named in the PFA team of the year; but in expected style, not all agreed. It was questioned by some as to whether he deserved to make the line-up, but why shouldn't he? In what has been such a frustrating and disappointing season for Liverpool, the Reds didn't make that stepping stone and build on the unbelievable progress that was made last year. With Suarez and Sturridge missing, however, we knew it would be difficult. But …
Liverpool at a Crossroads

Liverpool at a Crossroads

Defeats are always hard to stomach, some more than others. Sometimes though, it’s not just about the defeats or the manner of them; it’s an accumulation of things that change the landscape. For over 50 years, trophies have been the currency that Liverpool Football Club has dealt in and the sad fact is that 10 major trophies in the last 25 years, including just 3 in the last 10 years, is simply not good enough for England’s most successful club. …
There Goes The Fear - Liverpool Run Scared at Wembley

There Goes The Fear - Liverpool Run Scared at Wembley

At around 2 pm on Sunday April 19th 2014, Aston Villa’s players will have looked at the individuals on Liverpool’s team sheet and thought: “You know what? We’re better than these.” Tim Sherwood will have reinforced this belief, and sent his side out onto the Wembley pitch with plenty of confidence, a clear but simple tactical plan, and absolutely no fear. The steady left-footer Fabian Delph knows Jordan Henderson from their time in recent England squads, and will fully believe …
Brendan Rodgers - Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Brendan Rodgers - Should He Stay or Should He Go?

Sunday's FA Cup semi-final seemed to be the perfect opportunity for Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool to answer many questions that had arisen over the course of the season. The pressure was mounting on the Liverpool boss and his neck was firmly on the line. The stage was set, fans had amassed from all over the world and the excitement was palpable. Last season’s over-achievements had left many Reds fans, myself included, with unrealistic expectations this time around. But those hopes were …
In the Name of Liverpool's Progress

In the Name of Liverpool's Progress

It started with Mourinho. It finished with Sherwood. There’s a phrase that many seems to have adopted around Liverpool football club; weeks after the initial signs of a gravestone began to manifest itself around the persona of Brendan Rodgers; the term “for whom the bell tolls” seems to hover above his head like a wandering storm; those below it simply awaiting the strike of lightning. That strike came through the avenue of Tim Sherwood; whose tactical mastery of Christian Benteke …
Brendan Rodgers' Identity Thief

Brendan Rodgers' Identity Thief

So, does anybody know what happened to Brendan Rodgers? You know the one I mean, right? The one that had the dossier that impressed FSG so much they broke the structure they had in mind to appoint him. The one that had an ethos that the Liverpool fans got behind straight away, the whole death by football idea. The man with the supposed plan.
"You can take a swing at my ego, you can make a run at my …
Where did it all go wrong for Liverpool?

Where did it all go wrong for Liverpool?

In the space of a month, Liverpool’s season seems to have fallen apart. They’re out of the FA Cup and the possibility of a top four finish looks slim, although there is still hope. Liverpool currently sit in fifth place, on 57 points, seven points off Manchester City who are in the running for the final Champions League spot. The Reds have got a game in hand but with away ties to both Chelsea and Stoke still to play; it …
We're Coming Home from Wembley

We're Coming Home from Wembley

It's 19:23 as the Virgin Super Voyager speeds towards Chester. Should I be on this train? Quite frankly no, I had reserved seats on the 21:20 from Euston (sorry Virgin). How did I get here? Well it all started on Saturday morning with a 4:15am alarm, a quick open of my birthday presents/cards and a 5:50 train to Crewe. After getting on the Virgin Pendolino at Crewe (which is a much nicer train than the Super Voyager despite the lack of plugs) I arrived in London at 8:10am. The rest of …
