Steven Gerrard: Enjoying It While He Can

Steven Gerrard: Enjoying It While He Can

One of the big debates recently has been which side of the fence you're sitting on regarding Steven Gerrard. Was it the right time? Should the club have done more to keep him? After announcing his future move to LA Galaxy, there's now no turning back. The Liverpool captain will not complete the fairytale of being a one-club man, although a lot have come to the conclusion that this was the right step forward for everyone concerned. Gerrard can take …
Will Steven Gerrard's Spark Find its Place in The Galaxy?

Will Steven Gerrard's Spark Find its Place in The Galaxy?

The recent announcement that Steven Gerrard will be joining LA Galaxy at the end of this season will be met with plenty of questions, not least the age-old quandary of where to play him. His only role so far is that of designated player (a player who doesn't count towards the team’s salary cap), replacing the outgoing US soccer legend Landon Donovan. But whether he replaces America’s greatest ever player on the pitch, is another matter altogether. The Liverpool captain …
Attack isn't The Best Form of Defence for Liverpool FC

Attack isn't The Best Form of Defence for Liverpool FC

Attack isn’t the best form of Defence. The shambles known as the Liverpool defence has been a, if not THE, topic of conversation amongst Liverpool fans ever since Brendan Rodgers took over at the club.  With the goals against column worsening with each season Rodgers’ is at the helm, its little surprise the defensive signings are put under the microscope. Yet, surprisingly, a number of fans want to strengthen the attack in the January transfer window. After the success of …
Fed Up of Transition at Liverpool FC

Fed Up of Transition at Liverpool FC

Here we go again….another transitional period awaits Liverpool Football Club. In fact, for the past 20 years Liverpool Football Club and the word transition have been together hand in hand. Only seven months have passed since our title charge and we now need to replace our legendary captain in a few months time. We may also need to find ourselves a new manager considering a fourth place finish is looking a remote possibility based on our inconsistent form. Furthermore, the …
Why is Gerrard leaving LFC?

Why is Gerrard leaving LFC?

He is my footballing hero. The kid who became a man at Anfield that allowed so many fans like myself to dream. He was the player I saw in Istanbul, drive his team forward and win the Champions League. He is Steven Gerrard. Over the next six months the world will rightly laud his footballing career at Anfield and his legendary performances at his boyhood club. Gerrard has announced he will leave at the end of the season for a …
Raheem Sterling: Adapting to a Striker's Life

Raheem Sterling: Adapting to a Striker's Life

We had Sturridge, but we're still counting down the days until he returns. We tried Balotelli, but we haven't seen his quality. We tried Borini, and well... he got sent off. In days gone by we could have tried Steven Gerrard further up the pitch, but that isn't a long-term solution with him now being selectively chosen, and increasingly transforming into a Frank Lampard type of player. The man who has been given the responsibility, and stepped up, is Raheem …
Liverpool FC Recruitment Analysis: Watching the Watchmen

Liverpool FC Recruitment Analysis: Watching the Watchmen

After an exciting summer spending money on shiny new players, Liverpool FC set fans' pulses racing with the promise of defensive leadership, pace up front, guile in midfield, and those full-backs we’ve been looking for since the days of Stig Inge Bjørnebye and Rob Jones… Over a hundred million pounds were spent replacing Suarez, but not replacing him, as his only true replacement in terms of player profile (hard working, skillful, South American, high profile, tries crazy stuff) went to …

Liverpool FC: Who's In & Who's Out | January 2015

A certain Marco Reus was at the forefront of my arrivals for January in my original piece, written exactly a month ago. Glen Johnson was one of three talked about exits from the club. Since then, Liverpool have won three matches, whilst drawing three and losing two. Have things changed since? Yes, substantially. As the January transfer window draws ever closer, we take a quick glance at who is on Rodgers' Christmas wish-list as he looks to improve on his …
Father Figure Gone

Father Figure Gone

Mario Balotelli, in my mind, has an acute case of Peter Pan syndrome. Why else would he behave like an immature teenager with his somewhat funny antics when not playing football in front of millions? Much has been written about his potential to be a world class player ever since he broke into the Inter Milan senior squad on 16th December 2007, at a tender age of 17 years. Much has also been written why this hasn’t come to fruition. …
