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Liverpool FC | Is an ‘outdated’ system the way forward?

Liverpool FC | Is an ‘outdated’ system the way forward?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 …
The Kenny Effect

The Kenny Effect

Who would've thought that we would end the 2010/11 season off fighting for European qualification and having probably the best attacking duo in the Premier League? A look at the effect of Kenny Dalglish …

Expectations: Transfers and Next Season

Twitter can only get you so far when trying to explain your thoughts on a lot of things, limited to 140 characters, it's difficult, especially when I see so many people being very optimistic and so many "ITK"'s contradicting each other with whatever rumours there may be. So I thought I'd look at what we can expect and what I think we should expect to see from now until May of next year. Since purchasing the club, John Henry has …
Liverpool FC v Spurs: The Battle and the Burnout

Liverpool FC v Spurs: The Battle and the Burnout

THE RACE for the Premier League's sole Europa League qualification place has fast become one that neither side really seems to want to win. Not least because the once beloved UEFA Cup has devolved into a cheap imitation of the Champions League with unenviable jaunts to former Eastern Bloc backwaters, but also the upheaval that would potentially bring to the schedule of either Liverpool or Tottenham. Kenny Dalglish's side remain in the box seat to secure a fifth-place finish, which …

Finally, a problem worth having

It has certainly been a rough couple of years for Liverpool FC.  First there were the unwanted owners doing their upmost to ruin the club and then came the infighting at all levels; the boardroom, the coaching staff and players.  As if these problems weren’t enough, Liverpool were having to keep up with the high expectations of fans and media alike, whilst having to sell from an already threadbare squad to buy, nurse injury prone star players and play happy …
What Liverpool FC need (Part IV) – A Winger

What Liverpool FC need (Part IV) – A Winger

We could sit here all day, and debate what areas of our current squad needs strengthening. We could also discuss potential targets, and how realistic a chance of a certain team accepting a bid, and a certain player joining.   In fact, I have read many a debate on the the forums here (Anfield Index Forum), I've had many a discussion over a beer, and hear various shouts on the terraces at match days. In these discussions, I think there …
