Liverpool FC: Our Hopes and Expectations, Leaked Goals and Revelations

Liverpool FC: Our Hopes and Expectations, Leaked Goals and Revelations

This Sunday at Anfield, a 2013/14 Premier League winners trophy will be present along with some medals, just in case. All we need to accompany this agonising reminder of how close we've come this season is Jim Bowen to tell us what we could have won, before revealing said silverware, Bullseye style. There's still a slither of hope though. The final game against Newcastle will be a mixture of emotions, as this current Liverpool side have taken us on a …
Liverpool FC Fans - Fragile: Handle With Care

Liverpool FC Fans - Fragile: Handle With Care

It has been a very strange week in the life of being a Liverpool fan. Especially if you have a Twitter account. Oh boy, especially if you have a Twitter account. Following the defeat that ended, not only our unbeaten outset to 2014, but the incredible eleven game winning streak. The Premier League is also apparently out of our hands, hypothetically, but let us leave that topic aside for just a moment. Looking to place a bet? Place a bet …
Manager of the Year: Pulis or Rodgers?

Manager of the Year: Pulis or Rodgers?

As the Premier League draws to a close, the annual award ceremonies will soon begin with accolades awarded to the highest performing managers and players. While many fans' opinions are split, ultimately the eventual winners are unanimously chosen by their peers, journalists and professionals alike, with very little doubt about the players and managers in question. However, this season has seen two candidates stirring debate with regards to who the manager of the season is: Tony Pulis and Brendan Rodgers? …

Liverpool FC's 24 Years in the Wilderness

See Us Home, Kolo Lad

See Us Home, Kolo Lad

What’s your favourite funny sight in football? For me, it always used to be the keeper getting sent off. There’s the hilarity of an outfield player having to go in goal and we are treated to the joy of the massively oversized shirt, the big flapping gloves and, if the footballing Gods are smiling upon us, watching a stand-in keeper trying to organise a defensive wall. Somehow, an outfield player ending up in goal instantly transforms professional football into a …
Brendan Rodgers and the Counter Narratives

Brendan Rodgers and the Counter Narratives

From the first moment Brendan Rodgers was appointed as the new manager of Liverpool Football Club, fans angry with FSG for sacking a club legend couldn't wait to see him fail. First, his team played too many passes sideways. Then, Rodgers was ‘too idealistic’. He talked too much, had no Plan B and up until we could routinely thrash them, we couldn’t beat the league’s top sides. And so on, and so on. Now that the quibblers have been dismissed …
Pressure? What Pressure?

Pressure? What Pressure?

We will, no doubt, hear a lot of rubbish about ‘pressure’ over the coming weeks. If the popular media narrative is to be believed, Liverpool will crumble/succumb/collapse under the ‘pressure’ and falter in the title race. But why? Will players who have swept all before them in recent months open the paper one morning , glance at the league table and suddenly lose their first touch? Err..no. Will a chorus of ‘we’re gonna win the league’ suddenly drain all the …
Steven Gerrard and The Missing Page in Liverpool's Scrapbook

Steven Gerrard and The Missing Page in Liverpool's Scrapbook

As I write this Liverpool Football Club sit proudly at the top of the Premier League table and for want of a more suitable phrase ‘this shit just got real’. Of course there’s a legion of old-timer Kopites who have seen all this a dozen times or more, but similarly there is a whole generation of reds who have never been caught up in such a groundswell of optimism and belief that the title might, just might, be coming back …
April 1964: 50 Years On, Liverpool Seek to Relive the Past

April 1964: 50 Years On, Liverpool Seek to Relive the Past

As Liverpool FC take the field to take on Spurs on March 30th it will be exactly 50 years to the day since they also faced their North London opponents on the same patch of green Anfield turf. Back in 1964, The Beatles were number one in the charts with Can't Buy Me Love and Bill Shankly’s Reds were looking to make it a maximum three wins in four days over the Easter weekend, following their 3-1 win at Spurs …
Liverpool FC - They've Got The Balls!

Liverpool FC - They've Got The Balls!

As a 34 year old Liverpool fan with a dodgy ticker, the last few years have been relatively easy to get through, stress wise. We haven't been that great and we haven't had much to play for at the business end of the season. Sure we've had times where we've played well and yes, we've had the derbies and the big team games to get excited about but compared to this season, we've had very little to get excited about. …
