Liverpool FC v Spurs: The Battle and the Burnout

Liverpool FC v Spurs: The Battle and the Burnout

THE RACE for the Premier League's sole Europa League qualification place has fast become one that neither side really seems to want to win. Not least because the once beloved UEFA Cup has devolved into a cheap imitation of the Champions League with unenviable jaunts to former Eastern Bloc backwaters, but also the upheaval that would potentially bring to the schedule of either Liverpool or Tottenham. Kenny Dalglish's side remain in the box seat to secure a fifth-place finish, which …

Our best captain of the 2010/11 season

Unlike previous seasons Liverpool have had to use three captains, due to injuries and suspension to our normal candidate Steven Gerrard. So far in Gerrard’s absence Jamie Carragher Liverpool’ s vice captain has taken the step up, but in both of their absences fan’s favourite Pepe Reina has made the arm band his own. But which captain has had the most success this season? Jamie Carragher, has the highest win percentage as skipper at 55%, while Reina is placed in …

Liverpool FC Vs Newcastle United FC - Full Time Stats

Liverpool FC won their penultimate game at Anfield for the 2010/2011 season and took 5th spot in the Barclays Premier League meaning if they won all of their remaining games they'd have the chance to finish in a European spot which was looking increasing unlikely after the loss to West Brom a few weeks ago. Goals from Maxi Rodriguez, Dirk Kuyt and Luis Suarez earned the win in which the scoreline didn't tell the full story …

Finally, a problem worth having

It has certainly been a rough couple of years for Liverpool FC.  First there were the unwanted owners doing their upmost to ruin the club and then came the infighting at all levels; the boardroom, the coaching staff and players.  As if these problems weren’t enough, Liverpool were having to keep up with the high expectations of fans and media alike, whilst having to sell from an already threadbare squad to buy, nurse injury prone star players and play happy …

What Liverpool FC need (Part IV) – A Winger

We could sit here all day, and debate what areas of our current squad needs strengthening. We could also discuss potential targets, and how realistic a chance of a certain team accepting a bid, and a certain player joining.   In fact, I have read many a debate on the the forums here (Anfield Index Forum), I've had many a discussion over a beer, and hear various shouts on the terraces at match days. In these discussions, I think there …

Dirk Kuyt, my player of the season

Dirk Kuyt, my player of the season

Since Dirk Kuyt’s signing for Liverpool in the summer of 2006 he has gained many plaudits but has also come across his fair share of negative press. For Liverpool fans he has been nothing short of brilliant since the £10million pound move from Holland. But this season again he has really risen above the pack and is no doubt one of the first names on his manager’s team sheet each week. Supporters of other Premier League teams will continue to …
