Patience, Perseverance and Alberto Moreno

Patience, Perseverance and Alberto Moreno

Only just introduced from subs' bench, Andros Townsend looked on as the player who’d dispossessed him faded into the distance and fired a well placed shot past Hugo Lloris. Whilst the sight of a pacey left-back gliding down the wing to score at White Hart Lane may have stirred some fond memories amongst Spurs' fans, this time it was a Liverpool player announcing his arrival: Alberto Moreno was here. The Spaniard’s goal was the highpoint of an excellent team performance …
How do you Rate Liverpool's 14/15 Summer Signings?

How do you Rate Liverpool's 14/15 Summer Signings?

The summer of 2014 saw Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers spending £117m in the transfer market in an attempt to boost the club’s title aspirations. After a season that saw the Reds finish second and qualify for the Champions League, the plan was to strengthen the squad in preparation for a crowded fixture list. Of the signings made, though, only a few have made any significant difference to the team. A look at their form this season indicates better times could …
Never Give Up, Never Say Die | Liverpool FC

Never Give Up, Never Say Die | Liverpool FC

One of my all-time favorite books is titled 'The Hover Car Racer' by Matthew Reilly, who incidentally happens to be my favorite author too. I have read this book around 15 odd times and I am sure I will read it a lot more in the future. The fast paced novel had its fair share of speed, thrills, drama, action and very importantly, some excellent lines. The title itself happens to be one of them and something I think about …
Tiago Ilori Progressing Nicely on loan at Bordeaux

Tiago Ilori Progressing Nicely on loan at Bordeaux

Liverpool's highly rated central defender, Tiago Ilori, is now beginning to blossom at Bordeaux after a tough start to life on loan in Ligue 1. A hamstring injury back in October against Reims, that consequently saw him miss around two months, curtailed what had been a decent start to his loan spell. Since his return from injury, however, the Portuguese's performances have been rather encouraging, as he continues to justify why Liverpool were so keen to acquire him, and paid £7 million to do so. …
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 …
