Why Insua Deserves A Chance

Why Insua Deserves A Chance

There seems to be a large number of supporters who simply do not like Insua, and they will all tell you he simply isn't good enough. But is this actually true? or a very misinformed judgement? Most who criticise Insua, don't seem to take note that he is only 22 years old, and played most of his Liverpool first team games at the age of 20/21. That is a young age for a player to be thrust into the starting …

Charlie Adam - Statistical Breakdown of Season 2010/11

Liverpool FC announced today that they had, finally, agreed a few with Blackpool FC for the services of Charlie Adam. If Adam passes his medical, the six month long saga will draw to a close with Kenny finally getting his man …
Jordan Henderson: is chance creation the way to the top?

Jordan Henderson: is chance creation the way to the top?

[caption id="attachment_2895" align="alignleft" width="240" caption="Jordan Henderson"][/caption] Much has been made of the apparent inflated price Liverpool have paid for Jordan Henderson, believed to be in the region of £16m. Let us step away from the price tag for a moment, particularly as he has yet to kick a ball for his new club club, and consider the most telling statistic about Henderson’s 2010/11 season, that of his chance creation (tweets from OptaJoe here and here):
Only four players created more goalscoring chances …
Liverpool close in on Adam and Downing

Liverpool close in on Adam and Downing

Kenny Dalglish is confident of landing two more players in the coming days as he hopes to secure the signatures of Charlie Adam and then Stewart Downing. Jordan Henderson, who was signed earlier this month is said to be one of many new faces at Anfield this summer as Kenny Dalglish builds a squad capable of challenging at the top end of the Barclays Premier League.  Adam has been a long term target, his transfer saga looks to be finally …
Premier League Central Midfield Comparison

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. Players were coming into the club and some were leaving - most notably Javier Mascherano who left for Barcelona in a deal worth £22 million. 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

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. However my arm was twisted and I’ve added, arguably, two of the best left sided fullbacks in the league at the moment: Patrice Evra and Ashley Cole …
Width from the centre – that doesn’t really make sense, does it?

Width from the centre – that doesn’t really make sense, does it?

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. Despite more signings likely to come this summer, it surprised a lot of people that Jordan Henderson, the young Sunderland midfielder, was the first to be brought in. …
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. If you miss five then score the winner, you’re a hero. The goalkeeper can play a blinder, then let one in… and he’s a villain.” …

Liverpool FC Transfers are the talk of twitter at the moment with the transfer window now in full swing and, shockingly, with Liverpool FC completing its first piece of business of the summer, it promises to be a summer to remember.

First up we’ll be comparing the renowned defenders from the top three and also comparing them to Liverpool’s centre backs, Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel. We'll then look at the central defenders that are more likely to be available for transfer …
