Player Profile: Steven Gerrard

Player Profile: Steven Gerrard

Steven Gerrard has been a stalwart and inspiration for our club for a long time, and on many occasion he had to carry the club on his shoulders alone. There hasn’t been a better ambassador for this club for a very long time, maybe not since King Kenny left the first time …

Transfer Window Review (Part 2) | Midfield

This is Part II of my Transfer Window review, and a follow up to my original articles for "What our Team Needs" which I wrote back in April. Part I (Defenders) can be found here.  As with Part I, if you haven't read the series of "What our Team Needs" then I recommend you do read the "Central Midfielder" article that I wrote earlier this year. It goes into detail why we had the need for a new central midfield …

Transfer Window Review (Part I) | Defenders

It doesn't seem so long ago, that I was writing the "What our team needs" series. That was back in April, and I identified 4 key areas that we needed to add some quality to the side. Those were Left Back , Centre Back, a Centre Midfielder, and a Winger. It may take some reading to look at them all, but if you haven't already, then it maybe a worth giving them a quick scan. In summary, I assessed the squad …
Dalglish - Top V Bottom | The Secret to Success

Dalglish - Top V Bottom | The Secret to Success

I recently read an article by a fellow Liverpool fan, BassTunedToRed , which went into how many points per game (PPG) Dalglish has achieved in his second stint with Liverpool. Have a read of it here. As you can see, the form that Kenny is showing to date, would have us finish in the top 4 every year since 1995. And at least 3rd in all bar 3 seasons. Got to say, that is pretty impressive. If you read a little …
Downing & Enrique | Effectiveness Vs BWFC

Downing & Enrique | Effectiveness Vs BWFC

The left-wing has been an area of weakness for many years at Liverpool. But that problem looks to be resolved with Jose Enrique at left-back and Stewart Downing playing ahead of him in midfield. The pair link-up very well with each other and have settled into the starting line-up extremely well. In three league games, they've already proven why the club signed them with Enrique solid in defence and Downing excellent in attack. They were both instrumental in today's 3-1 …
Liverpool's Creativity | 3 signings that help

Liverpool's Creativity | 3 signings that help

In June, not long after we secured our first signing Jordan Henderson, I read a very interesting article on this site by Omar Chaudhuri. It explained how "chance creation"  and creativity can have a big effect on the number of points a team can achieve, and in the end, where they finish up come May. You can read it here. Of the 5 teams that finished above us, 4 of them created more chances than ourselves over the course of …
Where the game was won | Liverpool FC Vs Arsenal

Where the game was won | Liverpool FC Vs Arsenal

For the first time in eleven years Liverpool FC recorded a victory away at Arsenal, whether that be at the Emirates or Highbury. It was the first time ever that Liverpool had won at the Emirates so it was a very sweet moment regardless of quality of side that they were pitted against. It was widely recognised that this was Liverpool FC's best chance at gaining this victory and this was proved correct with Arsenal looking a shadow of the …
Progress Report: Jordan Henderson

Progress Report: Jordan Henderson

[caption id="attachment_3130" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Hendo in action"][/caption] As Jordan Henderson left the field in the 61st minute against Sunderland, Lucas Leiva would have been excused for breathing a sigh of relief. The heat is off, a new whipping boy is in town. Henderson has received some harsh treatment on radio phone-ins, message boards and on Twitter since his first competitive hour in a Liverpool shirt. In assessing whether this criticism is justified, the first place to look at is his …
Season Opener Statistics | Liverpool FC

Season Opener Statistics | Liverpool FC

There was so much optimism, so much positivity preceding the  2011/2012 season opener at Anfield. Everyone was expecting a good performance and because it was an opening game at Anfield, everyone expected a win. Well we didn't get it, although it wasn't all bad, there was some superb pass and move football in the first half which made the second half even worse. In the end if felt like the ice cream that you'd dropped on a hot summers day after the …
Liverpool FC vs. Sunderland AFC Preview

Liverpool FC vs. Sunderland AFC Preview

The Liverpool fans will be expecting a good start to the season after such a huge turnaround under Kenny Dalglish last season and the new signings have added a new level of optimism. Andy Carroll is now fully-fit and has enjoyed a successful pre-season, scoring three goals in six games. Opening day victories have been hard to come by for the Reds in previous years, winning only four of the previous 10. Last season started with a dogged 1-1 draw …
