Brendan's Blind Spots

Brendan's Blind Spots

Admittedly this has been written in the aftermath to an atrocious performance from the Redmen away at West Ham United, however that's down more to my laziness than anything I saw during the game. The fact is, these problems have been there for a long time. A quick disclaimer before we start, I am a huge fan of Brendan Rodgers, I have written numerous articles about him and firmly believe he is the man to make us great once again. …
Victor Valdes: The view from Barca - Q & A with Rafael Hernandez

Victor Valdes: The view from Barca - Q & A with Rafael Hernandez

When  Simon Mignolet joined the Reds last summer hopes were high for the young Belgian keeper who had impressed during his time at Sunderland. Though eyebrows were raised at how abruptly Reina was sent out on loan to Napoli, many reassured themselves that given such a decision Liverpool's management must've been happy with the replacement they'd  brought in. However, despite an overall impressive debut season, where the keeper's impressive shot stopping abilities saved the Reds crucial points in pivotal moments …

Every Tale Has Its Villains | Liverpool FC

Like the Joker to Batman. Like Moriarty to Sherlock. Like Scar to Mufasa. Every hero has the dark shroud overcome them at significant points of the story. Yet there doesn’t seem to be a cure in sight. Every tale has it’s villain, and Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool has certainly met theirs; and conveniently, as if it wasn’t painstakingly obvious already, the Villains are the Villains. That is to say, the apt nickname of Aston Villa football club is the thorn in …

Liverpool 2 Ludogorets 1 In-Depth Tactical Analysis: Much To Improve On

Football has a funny habit of exposing almost every emotion you could ever possibly have. Occasionally, it even exposes ones you didn't know were possible for you to have. Anxiety, elation, nerves, frustration, joy, anger, hilarity; all words that could be used to describe the feeling of a fan watching Liverpool's first Champions League match in five years. In all honesty, those words could be used to describe watching the last ten minutes alone. For any who had forgotten the …

Jordan Henderson | Why He's The Correct Choice For Vice Captain

Jordan Henderson | Why He's The Correct Choice For Vice Captain

A dramatic turnaround shows the measure of a player, and none more so than Jordan Henderson, who has been named as Liverpool’s new vice-captain. When he first came to Liverpool, only 20 years old, the glimpses we saw in his first season were quite timid, and looking like this step was one too big at the time. No doubt, there was potential there, but nothing like the Jordan Henderson we know today. As a fan of Jordan as a player …

The Build-Up Phases in Liverpool's Diamond Formation

Since the introduction of the diamond system into the Liverpool team last season, the overall performance of the team improved radically. This article aims to look at the various build-up plays that are involved in the 4-3-1-2 system or the diamond system, as it is commonly known. The basic principle in this system is to control the game while holding possession of the ball but also have the option of making a fast counter attack when opponents lose possession on …
The Man Made of Glass | Daniel Sturridge

The Man Made of Glass | Daniel Sturridge

Against Aston Villa on Saturday, it was evident we lacked ‘something’ up front. I feel Sturridge is that ‘something’ – as well as Sterling, but he was on the bench. On Friday the 5th of September 2014, English striker Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool’s most prolific goal scorer in his first 50 games in the Premier league era, was declared injured with a thigh strain for up to three weeks*. *(If Sturridge is unfit for the entirety of three weeks, it would mean that …
