Liverpool FC: Following the Dortmund Model into Europe

Liverpool FC: Following the Dortmund Model into Europe

Back to the Holy Land It’s that time of year again isn’t it? That annoying period in a season where every player, manager, pundit and fan peddles out the most irksome of cliché’s in the game: “if you offered me this position we’re in right now at the start of the season, I’d have bit your hand off for it!”. *Patiently waits for the next passing bus and jumps out in front of it* However I think an exception to …

Countera-TikiTaka: The New Liverpool Way

"The front three have pace, power, movement, and I would say Liverpool might be one of the best counter-attacking teams in Europe at the moment.   "The way they suck teams in and just break on them.

Will players who have swept all before them in recent months open the paper one morning , glance at the league table and suddenly lose their first touch? Err..no. Will a chorus of ‘we’re gonna win the league’ suddenly drain all the …

Steven Gerrard and The Missing Page in Liverpool's Scrapbook

As I write this Liverpool Football Club sit proudly at the top of the Premier League table and for want of a more suitable phrase ‘this shit just got real’. Of course there’s a legion of old-timer Kopites who have seen all this a dozen times or more, but similarly there is a whole generation of reds who have never been caught up in such a groundswell of optimism and belief that the title might, just might, be coming back …

Raheem Sterling - A Wing and a Player

Raheem Sterling - A Wing and a Player

Brendan Rodgers once spoke of his reluctance to give a young player a lucrative contract early in their career. The thinking behind this is that the natural hunger for the game which players possess at this age, can transform into a hunger for their next pay packet or bonus, and have an adverse effect on their performances. Not long after he became Liverpool manager, Rodgers had this to say on the subject:
“I believe a young player will run …

April 1964: 50 Years On, Liverpool Seek to Relive the Past

As Liverpool FC take the field to take on Spurs on March 30th it will be exactly 50 years to the day since they also faced their North London opponents on the same patch of green Anfield turf. Back in 1964, The Beatles were number one in the charts with Can't Buy Me Love and Bill Shankly’s Reds were looking to make it a maximum three wins in four days over the Easter weekend, following their 3-1 win at Spurs …
