Liverpool FC 2010/11 Premier League Analysis: Part 1

Liverpool FC 2010/11 Premier League Analysis: Part 1

The summer of 2010 brought about change at Liverpool FC. Rafael Benitez had been relieved of his duties as manager of the club and Roy Hodgson left Fulham to take the reigns at Anfield.

Joe Cole, Raul Meireles, Christian Poulsen and Paul Konchesky all arrived at Anfield in what was billed as the 'rebuilding season' …

Liverpool FC Transfer Scouting Stats: Left Backs

Another week, another edition of Scouting Stats! The last two editions were very successful with some great feedback for the Premier League Winger Comparison and then last week’s Premier League Centre Back Comparison article. This week we are going to concentrate on the top Premier League left back. We were going to only look at those that were linked with Liverpool FC recently: Jose Enrique, Leighton Baines and Gael Clichy.

Width has long been a problem for Liverpool and a winger has been near the top of all fans wish lists pretty much since John Barnes was in his prime.

Premier League Goalkeeper Analysis – 2010/11

Premier League Goalkeeper Analysis – 2010/11

The man between the sticks is forgotten about far too often in football. Just look at Barcelona, the best team in the world right now. Victor Valdes may be a quality goalkeeper, but he is very rarely given the chance to prove that due to the nature of Barcelona’s football. As Ian Rush famously said, “It’s best being a striker.

Dirk Kuyt - The Overview

Dirk Kuyt - The Overview

Dirk Kuyt has been quite an important player for Liverpool Football Club. Ever since he signed in the summer of 2006, he has played an integral part in each season.   In his first season at the club, the Dutchman hit the back of the net 12 times in the league - a fairly decent amount for his first season in a completely new league.
