Jamie Carragher: The Stats Behind The Man

Jamie Carragher is a player who needs no introduction. In his lengthy career there is only one trophy that has eluded him; he has racked up over 650 appearances for the club often playing more than 50 games a season. He has made 137 European appearances for Liverpool (as of 24/02/2011) which is a British record. Never one to shy away from a challenge or quietly go about his business, in fact there is barely a match that goes by when you can’t hear him barking out orders to his team mates even when playing to an audience of tens of thousands, he has come in for criticism, been labelled not good enough an overlooked for England but has still remained a first choice defender for Liverpool for over a decade. But now in his 33rd year as he approaches the final stages of his 15th campaign he is finding himself under the microscope more and more often. So what do the stats actually say about Jamie? Is he overrated or underrated, wrongly or rightly overlooked? …
Martin Skrtel: Feast or Famine?

Martin Skrtel: Feast or Famine?

A brief introduction: I’m Conor Dowley, and while I’m a Yank through and through, I’m also a huge Liverpool supporter. My best friend grew up just blocks from Anfield, so when I started getting more and more in to the sport and it came time to choose a team to support (five years or so ago), Liverpool was the natural choice. It helped that I loved watching them play; Steven Gerrard was then and is still now one of my favorite individual players to watch …

Liverpool Vs Man United Stats - Passing

Following on from our previous post with regards to match stats we thought we'd post some in depth breakdown on the passes made by each of the players that made the majority of the match. The passes are broken down in to forward, backward, left and right passes. Hopefully you'll be able to find some sort of correlation. However the obvious things you may notice are things like defenders passing a higher proportion forward and strikers laying off passes backwards a lot more …

Liverpool Vs Man United - Match Report

Liverpool Vs Man United - Where the Game was Won   Payback is a b*tch and Manchester United's slaughter at Anfield yesterday was just that - Payback. After suffering two defeats at their hands this season the win was very welcome, as I'm sure every Liverpool fan didn't want to even contemplate a third loss, in one season, to them.  Not only was it a welcome win, it was pretty much a hammering which made it even more enjoyable! It …

Liverpool Vs Man United Stats

Liverpool Vs Man United Stats   A fantastic win for Liverpool today with Dirk Kuyt, Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard and Lucas Leiva really impressing. Whilst watching we noticed that the movement of the Liverpool players was excellent and a lot of passes were breaking down because it was all excellent one touch football. This is probably the reason why the passing statistics below aren't as impressive as you'd think. It all looked very good on the eye and Liverpool totally …

Pepe Reina - irreplaceable?

Pepe Reina - irreplaceable?

It’s always hard to rate keepers. You can’t really rate based on goals against averages or clean sheets, as they are not just decided by goalkeepers, but on how good defences are and how defensive coaches can be. Some keepers can look good... …
Hodgson Era: Dirk Kuyt

Hodgson Era: Dirk Kuyt

Dirk Kuyt played 16 games for Liverpool in the worst start to a season in living memory. This article will look in detail at how he performed during those 16 games in relation to the rest of the team.
