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 …
Player Profile: Steven Gerrard

Player Profile: Steven Gerrard

Steven Gerrard has been a stalwart and inspiration for our club for a long time, and on many occasion he had to carry the club on his shoulders alone. There hasn’t been a better ambassador for this club for a very long time, maybe not since King Kenny left the first time …

Transfer Window Review (Part 2) | Midfield

This is Part II 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.  As with Part I, if you haven't read the series of "What our Team Needs" then I recommend you do read the "Central Midfielder" article that I wrote earlier this year. It goes into detail why we had the need for a new central midfield …

Transfer Window Review (Part I) | Defenders

It doesn't seem so long ago, that I was writing the "What our team needs" series. That was back in April, and I identified 4 key areas that we needed to add some quality to the side. Those were Left Back , Centre Back, a Centre Midfielder, and a Winger. It may take some reading to look at them all, but if you haven't already, then it maybe a worth giving them a quick scan. In summary, I assessed the squad …
Dalglish - Top V Bottom | The Secret to Success

Dalglish - Top V Bottom | The Secret to Success

I recently read an article by a fellow Liverpool fan, BassTunedToRed , which went into how many points per game (PPG) Dalglish has achieved in his second stint with Liverpool. Have a read of it here. As you can see, the form that Kenny is showing to date, would have us finish in the top 4 every year since 1995. And at least 3rd in all bar 3 seasons. Got to say, that is pretty impressive. If you read a little …
Downing & Enrique | Effectiveness Vs BWFC

Downing & Enrique | Effectiveness Vs BWFC

The left-wing has been an area of weakness for many years at Liverpool. But that problem looks to be resolved with Jose Enrique at left-back and Stewart Downing playing ahead of him in midfield. The pair link-up very well with each other and have settled into the starting line-up extremely well. In three league games, they've already proven why the club signed them with Enrique solid in defence and Downing excellent in attack. They were both instrumental in today's 3-1 …
Liverpool's Creativity | 3 signings that help

Liverpool's Creativity | 3 signings that help

In June, not long after we secured our first signing Jordan Henderson, I read a very interesting article on this site by Omar Chaudhuri. It explained how "chance creation"  and creativity can have a big effect on the number of points a team can achieve, and in the end, where they finish up come May. You can read it here. Of the 5 teams that finished above us, 4 of them created more chances than ourselves over the course of …
