A Tale Of Two Cities | Liverpool V Manchester

A Tale Of Two Cities | Liverpool V Manchester

To borrow a well known opening to a classic book; “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair”. One year on there cannot be a bigger contrast in …
The Saturday Showdown | Liverpool Vs United

The Saturday Showdown | Liverpool Vs United

What is undoubtedly the biggest game in England, and one of the biggest in world football returns this Saturday and Liverpool will be looking to ensure that United's recent Anfield hell continues. Its still early doors this season but this game is a definite 6 pointer, should Liverpool win they would close the gap on their rivals to 3 points, lose and United will extend the gap to 9 points. Given United's flying start to the season, for Liverpool to …

Charlie Adam | The story so far

[caption id="attachment_3550" align="alignleft" width="160" caption="Charlie Adam"][/caption] There was no doubt this summer that Liverpool wanted Charlie Adam. They had tried desperately throughout January to prise him from Karl Oyston's grasp at Blackpool, and had almost lost him to Spurs in the dying embers of the window. There seemed never a doubt that they would return with another bid as they sought to introduce some passing flair into their midfield. Adam was praised throughout his breakthrough season at Blackpool for his …
Reds Need To Be More Clinical

Reds Need To Be More Clinical

After a defeat or a draw managers try to focus on general team performance and how well their side have played but it is positive results that they most covet, with the difference between a draw and a win often coming down to the smallest details. Obviously there are a number of things that go towards creating a winning team and while many say that you should build a team from the back, it is often the strikers that decide …
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 …
