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 …
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

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. …
