Home & Away: Starring Philippe Coutinho | Stats Analysis

Philippe Coutinho’s display in the recent game away at Southampton was disappointing, but not unexpected. Since joining the club he’s put in this type of performance on numerous occasions, with the earliest example being a game against Chelsea at Anfield last season, when he was substituted at half time. A tweet from City Talk’s Jay Riley during the game reflected on the inconsistent nature of his performances, and further suggestions were made that he struggles to perform away from home. …
Daniel Sturridge | Witness the Brendan Rodgers Effect

Daniel Sturridge | Witness the Brendan Rodgers Effect

Daniel Sturridge was a promising youngster at Manchester City when he first made his name. He didn’t manage to fulfil his potential as he never really got to play in his desired position or some could argue his attitude was not right. Sturridge just wasn’t cutting it at Manchester City even though it was reported that Mark Hughes was keen on keeping the young striker. This is when Chelsea came in for the youngster who had yet to fully show …

Glen Johnson: His season so far | Stats

Glen Johnson has come out in recent days to say how he's a massive fan of Brendan Rodgers (who isn't at the moment?!) and that he wants to stay at Liverpool for years to come. As a solid and reliable right-back for the majority of his Liverpool career, Johnson is hitting the milestone of 50 caps for England, but has had an up and down season for the Reds.

The Taming of Luis Suarez

The Taming of Luis Suarez

There’s a scene in the highly acclaimed political thriller series ‘House of Cards’, where the antihero protagonist Francis Underwood is being told by his soon-to-be adversary Raymond Tusk as to which attributes of Francis’ makes him the compelling candidate for a major role in the White House (bear with me as I try my best to not inadvertently leak out obvious spoilers from this excellent series). Francis is told, rather directly, that his penchant for pragmatism, ruthlessness to execute, a …

Joe Allen Stars in Late Cameo vs Swansea

Joe Allen Stars in Late Cameo vs Swansea

Joe Allen is a player in whom Brendan Rodgers has invested a lot. Whilst at Swansea, the Welshman was a mainstay of their Championship play-off winning side, and the diminutive midfielder’s performances brought lavish praise from his manager.
...while he is not at the same level, he is that Xavi or Iniesta type of player. He’s 5ft 7in, not physically tall or great in stature but he is brilliant on the ball, has great intelligence and good mobility.

Liverpool FC: Putting Flesh on Your Dreams

And some day soon, maybe next May, maybe the one after or the one after that, a middle-aged man in a suit will wade through a sea of scarves in front of the Kop, pick one up and tie it around his neck like a docker, make a defiant fist with his left hand and hold the Holy Grail in the other, and stare at us the way the risen Christ looked at is disciples, eyes blazing with an intensity …
