Liverpool Win the Carling Cup - It's only the Mickey Mouse Cup!

Liverpool Win the Carling Cup - It's only the Mickey Mouse Cup!

So we did it, we finally won a trophy after seeing Liverpool go without one for nearly SIX years!  How times have changed since then!  We have had new owners, another Champions League Final, a new Kop idol, Premier League Runners-up, a rubbish manager, high court battle, more new owners, the return of a King, said £23m "Kop idol striker" throwing a tantrum and then being replaced by another Kop idol - Luis Suarez, who was then banned for 9 …

So close. Yet, so far... | City 3 v Liverpool 0 (02/01/2012)

So close. Yet, so far... | City 3 v Liverpool 0 (02/01/2012)

I just want to start by saying this was originally a forum post, and it was written after the Manchester City game, which we lost 3-0. All these stats are as of 03/01/2012 so if some things are slightly out, I apologise now. I was analysing the stats and figures, and as I looked a bit deeper, I began to find more and more of what is going wrong. It doesn't take a genius to see it with your own two eyes, …
Luis Suarez Smear campaign in full flow | More Evidence

Luis Suarez Smear campaign in full flow | More Evidence

UPDATE: Sky have now announced Suarez as the winner of the 2011 Goals on Sunday Player of the Year competition.
Liverpool supporters have felt that there has been a smear campaign against Luis Suarez over the last few months.  There was more evidence of this last night with the Sky Sports Player of 2011 online poll.  Someone made a joke, on Twitter at about 9pm that Suarez was so far ahead (I think it was by about 15% at this …
Graft, Craft and How to Fill

Graft, Craft and How to Fill "The Lucas Role"

Getting the right mix of grafters and crafters is vital to a team's success. A grafter is the type of player who makes up for any failings in natural technical ability through sheer blood, guts and endeavour. Think Dirk Kuyt. On the opposite end of the scale you have crafters, players who have a very high level of technical ability but are are more tactile in their play. Jordan Henderson fits into this box. Liverpool's squad has many players who immediately …
Lucas Deserves More From All Of Us

Lucas Deserves More From All Of Us

A Sky Sports Man of the Match award at last.  Forget the 2010 Liverpool FC Young Player of the Year Award and the Golden Samba awarded from the Kop last season; that man of the match award from Gary Neville and co after the Manchester City match must mean that Lucas Leiva is finally a player befitting the Liverpool shirt. That’s what it seems from the media coverage, anyway. After suffering an injury against Chelsea last Tuesday, just 50 hours …
Liverpool FC | Is an ‘outdated’ system the way forward?

Liverpool FC | Is an ‘outdated’ system the way forward?

Upon Kenny Dalglish’s return as Liverpool manager in January 2011, many supposed experts suggested that the club legend had been ‘out of the game’ for too long.  Whatever that term is meant to mean, Dalglish soon proved that it was nothing to worry about.  Improved performances led to improved results as Liverpool made a late surge for 4th place, something which was a distant dream during the nightmare that was Roy Hodgson’s spell as manager. Primarily, Dalglish set his team …
Dirk Kuyt | The man for the big occasion

Dirk Kuyt | The man for the big occasion

After spending big in consecutive transfer windows, Liverpool finally have strength in depth in attacking positions.  With this though, comes selection problems and, so far this season, the man to miss out has been Dirk Kuyt. Formerly one of the first names on the team sheet, Kuyt has only started half of Liverpool’s games so far this season, as Jordan Henderson has been preferred on the right side of midfield and Luis Suarez has mostly played as either a lone striker or alongside Andy Carroll.  …
Width from the centre – that doesn’t really make sense, does it?

Width from the centre – that doesn’t really make sense, does it?

Width has long been a problem for Liverpool and a winger has been near the top of all fans wish lists pretty much since John Barnes was in his prime. Despite more signings likely to come this summer, it surprised a lot of people that Jordan Henderson, the young Sunderland midfielder, was the first to be brought in. …

Season Defining Moments - The Dalglish Factor

From the moment the season ended last year, there was a clear indication there was to be a lot of changes forthcoming at Anfield. Rafael Benitez was relieved of his duties after finishing 7th in the Premier League and failing to qualify for the Champions League knockout stages. Former owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett were then forced to bring in Martin Broughton and team to oversee the sale of Liverpool Football Club after the Royal Bank of Scotland called …
