Everton vs Liverpool - Match preview

Everton vs Liverpool - Match preview

One of the biggest games of any Liverpool season is just around the corner. For those that don’t know (hardly anyone, probably no one) but we are making the short trip across Stanley Park to Everton’s Goodison Park. Like any other Merseyside derby, we haven't been short of something to talk about. Probably the main point on this occasion is the selection of referee Martin Atkinson. The Yorkshireman has had no problem dishing out a card this season, already brandishing …
Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Welcome to the friendly derby. However, judging by the amount of red and yellow cards in this fixture over the years the players don’t seem to follow the maxim of ‘friendly derby’. It’s Everton against Liverpool, a game that needs no introduction. Everton go into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Man City and with a last 5 game record (LWDWL) that screams inconsistency. It’s generally thought that Everton have started the season badly yet if …
Dirk Kuyt | The man for the big occasion

Dirk Kuyt | The man for the big occasion

After spending big in consecutive transfer windows, Liverpool finally have strength in depth in attacking positions.  With this though, comes selection problems and, so far this season, the man to miss out has been Dirk Kuyt. Formerly one of the first names on the team sheet, Kuyt has only started half of Liverpool’s games so far this season, as Jordan Henderson has been preferred on the right side of midfield and Luis Suarez has mostly played as either a lone striker or alongside Andy Carroll.  …
Jordan Henderson | A Central Point

Jordan Henderson | A Central Point

[caption id="attachment_3470" align="alignleft" width="150"] Henderson[/caption] Jordan Henderson is something of a conundrum. To the vocal few he is a waste of money, to many more he is a player of great potential. To nobody, save perhaps the Liverpool coaching staff, he is a right winger who should be keeping Dirk Kuyt out of the side. When Liverpool paid £16M to Sunderland for Henderson's services, there was much trumpeting of the stat that only four players had created more chances than …
Is Carroll starting to fit in?

Is Carroll starting to fit in?

Fluidity. That’s the word on every Liverpool fan’s lips and how we soon hope to be able to describe our attacking play on a regular basis. Pass and move is part of Liverpool’s footballing heritage and it is just as important to supporters that we start playing the ‘Liverpool way’ as it is we start giving the trophy room manager a selection headache again, and with Kenny Dalglish at the helm anything is possible. In recent seasons fans have had …
Stewart Downing: The First Six Games

Stewart Downing: The First Six Games

Stewart Downing came to Liverpool with many fans feeling that we had settled for second best after United had signed Ashley Young. Some even intimated that, in replacing Downing with N’Zogbia, Villa had improved their first team for a fraction of the price. Dalglish has always insisted that Downing was his first choice, and a look at his first six games for Liverpool helps to show why this was the case. Downing made his debut against Sunderland on the opening …
Liverpool vs Wolves - Match preview

Liverpool vs Wolves - Match preview

Liverpool are set to entertain Wolverhampton on the back of progressing to the fourth round of the Carling cup, but with two disappointing league performances at Stoke and Spurs. Mick McCarthy's Wolves side have made an impressive start to their season taking seven points from their first five games, but sit two places lower than Liverpool who also sit on seven points in eighth place. Both side’s defences will both be under scrutiny, with both teams on minus goal difference. Liverpool …
Is Jamie Carragher Still a Certain Starter for Liverpool?

Is Jamie Carragher Still a Certain Starter for Liverpool?

At the age of 33, time is against Jamie Carragher. This season more than ever, his status as a first choice starter is under intense scrutiny. Big questions are starting to be asked openly by Liverpool fans about whether Carragher still warrants a place in Liverpool’s First XI. So, why are the murmurings of discontent growing louder by the week? Passing One part of his game that is heavily under the microscope is his passing. Indeed, season on season, Carragher’s …
Stoke City Vs Liverpool FC | Defence v Attack

Stoke City Vs Liverpool FC | Defence v Attack

It was not a good day for Liverpool FC on Saturday, 10th September. A loss to Stoke at the Britannia Stadium for the second consecutive season does not make for good reading. However we're going to try and present a few statistics together to show a few of the factors we believe contributed to the fact that Liverpool FC didn't win against Stoke City. The answer is obvious. It was because Liverpool FC couldn't convert their chances on the day. …
Transfer Window Review (Part 3) - Winger

Transfer Window Review (Part 3) - Winger

This is Part III of my Transfer Window review, and a follow up to my original articles for “What our Team Needs” which I wrote back in April. Part I (Defenders) can be found here, and Part II (Midfielders) here.  When I wrote the original article, "What our Team Needs - A Winger", it was probably the most important transfer that we needed to make this summer. While we had some key areas that needed filling, a natural winger was something …
