Five Fingers Became a Fist of Liverpool Unity

Five Fingers Became a Fist of Liverpool Unity

Tuesday 9th December, the game finishes 1-1 at Anfield and Liverpool are knocked out of the Champions League after a pitiful display. Coutinho, Sakho, Moreno, Can, Lallana and Markovic all started the game on the bench. The knives were truly out for Brendan Rodgers. I have to admit, I was reaching out for the meat cleaver myself after witnessing poor performances game after game. A defeat at Old Trafford followed but something changed. It wasn’t just the formation changes and team …
Liverpool FC: Time for Tunnel Vision?

Liverpool FC: Time for Tunnel Vision?

After being knocked out by eventual-winners Chelsea in the Capital One Cup semi-finals and subsequently by Besiktas in the Europa League, Liverpool were suddenly left with only one remaining cup competition to fight for. The Reds being in the quarter-finals of the magical, domestic FA Cup already means that there’s no reason why they shouldn’t go all the way to try and win it. It’s been about a decade since a ‘major trophy’ was added to Liverpool’s prestigious collection of …
2 Sides to Brendan: Has He Done Enough?

2 Sides to Brendan: Has He Done Enough?

Over Brendan Rodgers' time at Liverpool, his contrasting results have left many to wonder whether he has a future at the helm of the Reds. So, does he? …
The Future of the Right Wing Back role at Liverpool

The Future of the Right Wing Back role at Liverpool

With March just around the corner it may seem a little early to start thinking about potential summer signings, but with Glen Johnson looking like he's rejecting a new deal and Javi Manquillo not getting a look in after some good early season form The Reds may be in the market for a right back this summer. Liverpool have been playing wingers/wing backs as of late, so any potential signing would have to be able to be comfortable playing in …
Liverpool FC: Achievement Unlocked

Liverpool FC: Achievement Unlocked

We have all gone through games where we struggle at Level 47, or some other game where we are stuck at Level 82 and are awaiting a cheat code to crack the game. The pre-game emotions yesterday felt something like that. Chelsea at home against Burnley drop 2 points. Matic out for 3 games - FOR REAL? Mourinho refuses to complain about the referee post-game, hence gets a show on Sky, to criticise the decisions and Sky - Wahey! Manchester …
Sean Connery, Winners and Mario Balotelli

Sean Connery, Winners and Mario Balotelli

Mason: Are you sure you're ready for this? [walks up staircase] Goodspeed: I'll do my best. Mason: [stops and motions back to Goodspeed] Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and f*ck the prom queen! When the squabble happened over who would take the penalty at Anfield I like many watching it unfold had a range of conflicting thoughts and feelings.  I didn’t like seeing Balotelli take the penalty from the Captain, Jordan Henderson, but at …
The Sturridge Effect

The Sturridge Effect

Selhurst Park hadn't been a welcoming theatre for Liverpool FC for the best part of twenty years, before Saturday night. The last Liverpool player to score a goal, for a winning side, at the home of Crystal Palace was none other than Oyvind Leonhardson, way back in December of 1997. Perhaps, therefore, there may well have been some justification for a gloomy sense of deja vu, sweeping the away fans, when Frazer Campbell slid in a rather fortuitous opener after 15 …
(Raheem Can't Get No) Satisfaction | Sterling Contract Saga

(Raheem Can't Get No) Satisfaction | Sterling Contract Saga

As the seemingly annual Raheem Sterling contract saga drags on into another week, it’s worth taking in the following quote from one of the best man-managers the game has seen:
"You can't be satisfied just because you've achieved something. Satisfaction is the biggest enemy of an athlete." Ottmar Hitzfeld
Brendan Rodgers’ approach to these situations aligns well with Hitzfeld’s words, as the Liverpool manager always reinforces the dangers of rewarding a young player too early. In his recent comments on …
The Liverpool Screw Job | Lovren Vs Sakho

The Liverpool Screw Job | Lovren Vs Sakho

The Liverpool changing room. Morale is high after the late Tottenham win but that's not enough for Brendan Rodgers. The owners are in town and he needs to make an impression. Brendan: "Listen, lads, fantastic effort tonight. It's a great win, you all showed great technical ability. Even you, Dejan, you made no mistakes when coming on so the #LFCFamily will be pleased." The players all have a laugh whilst the manager flashes back to eating a Haribo tangfastic and …
Coutinho's Top Moments So far & Areas for Improvement

Coutinho's Top Moments So far & Areas for Improvement

The 2015 January transfer window was a pretty dull one to say the least. Whether it was due to the lack of abusive fans outside stadiums on deadline day, or Liverpool's subdued business done on the in-comings end remains to be known. That was, of course, until around half-an-hour prior to the eleven o'clock deadline, when the news broke that our little magician Philippe Coutinho has penned a new bumper 5-year deal, which will see him contracted to the club …
