Mario's Red Nightmare

Mario's Red Nightmare

When Mario Balotelli signed for Liverpool last year, to say opinion was divided would be an understatement. Some thought it was disaster waiting to happen whilst others believed it would be Mario's time to shine. Loved by an adoring, famously loyal fan base, he would finally show the world his talent on a football pitch. Become a hero. A Liverpool legend. Fast forward twelve months and the issues are different and opinion is still divided. Last season saw the Italian …
One Brazilian In, Another One Out?

One Brazilian In, Another One Out?

The season's begun and with it comes more changes. A host of players in and a host of players out. And there's Brazilian fever all around Liverpool. Liverpool's new signing, Roberto Firmino, has attracted excitement and hope whilst team-mate, Philippe Coutinho, continues to light up the Premier League. An opening goal for the 'little magician' and a short, but encouraging debut from the new signing, it appears Liverpool's Brazilian flair is on the rise. But at the other end of …
David Fairclough - Kop Hero | Heroes of our Past

David Fairclough - Kop Hero | Heroes of our Past

There have been many great emotional European nights at Anfield. Even with the rise of the modern game Anfield stands apart from other grounds with it’s unrivalled passion. It’s not only an opinion shared by Liverpool supporters, it still remains a mythical citadel of football to most supporters, players and managers, regardless of their era. Just watch them all line up for the photo touching the “This is Anfield” sign if you are in left in any doubt. On 16th March …
The Lallana Dilemma

The Lallana Dilemma

Just about a year ago, Liverpool FC agreed yet another deal with Southampton for their captain Adam Lallana. Most Liverpool fans agreed that he was a good signing. Definitely not the world-class, big name category of player we had been craving since the departure of Luis Suarez, but it seemed he would be a player that would fit into our style and complement the team in a positive way. The transfer fee of a reported £23 million seemed excessive, but given …
Liverpool Summer Holiday Series - Wunderbar Bundesliga!

Liverpool Summer Holiday Series - Wunderbar Bundesliga!

As part of the AI Summer Holiday series, I've gone to the German Bundesliga to identify 3 players who I believe would improve the current Liverpool team. Benedikt Höwedes I initially thought it would be pointless identifying an upgrade on Martin Skrtel after he signed a new contract and appears to be the front runner to become vice-captain. However, I decided that this article is about realistic targets that would improve our team, not necessarily positions that will actually be …
Jordan Henderson - Defensive Midfielder?

Jordan Henderson - Defensive Midfielder?

With the season just around the corner many fans have started naming their 'Dream XI' for the season ahead. Sometimes you'll see these though and think yeah that'd be boss on Football Manager or Fifa. This is real life though and you have to consider the tactics and the shape. In the last week or so I've started to see people mentioning Henderson as our defensive midfielder. At first I thought they wanted to deploy Henderson as a deep lying …
Lovren's Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Lovren's Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Dejan Lovren is mentally weak. I don't like making assumptions or accusations like this, especially when they're towards people I don't personally know, but this is just something you can't ignore. All players want to be loved but Dejan Lovren seems like the sort that needs positive reinforcement to function. Less than one week after saying he doesn't want to be the made the scapegoat again this season he's making Patrick Ronaldinho look like Sergio Aguero. Poor defensive positioning against a Malaysian side …
The Five Contenders to Become Liverpool's Vice-Captain

The Five Contenders to Become Liverpool's Vice-Captain

A short while ago, the club announced the inevitable and Jordan Henderson was officially unveiled as Liverpool Football Club's new captain. It was hardly a closely kept secret, but it was certainly music to the ears of Liverpool fans around the world. The turnaround from the central midfielder - from a onetime makeweight in a failed deal for Clint Dempsey to the lynchpin of Brendan Rodgers' side - is nothing short of remarkable. With Henderson making the step up from …
Lights, Camera, Action — Gerrard's Hollywood Premiere

Lights, Camera, Action — Gerrard's Hollywood Premiere

It has been quite an exciting week filled with firsts for Liverpool icon, Steven Gerrard.  It began July 11th, with his highly anticipated debut for the Los Angeles Galaxy.  Making his first home appearance in an International Champions' Cup match-up at the StubHub Center against Mexican power Club America.  Though the fixture itself wasn’t anything more than a preseason warm-up for the Mexican side, it was the ideal situation for Gerrard to get his feet wet and familiarise himself with …
Mama Told Me There’d Be Days Like These

Mama Told Me There’d Be Days Like These

Analyzing Mamadou Sakho’s Uphill Battle and His Ability to Persevere: When Liverpool brought Mamadou Sakho to Anfield in the summer of 2013, there was a myriad of reasons to be excited.  The prospect of adding a player of such quality to a squad in search of its first Champions League birth since 2009, was a great signal of intent for a club in a state of flux. As the most expensive signing in Brendan Rodgers’ second summer transfer window, Sakho …
