Where the game was won | Liverpool FC Vs Arsenal

For the first time in eleven years Liverpool FC recorded a victory away at Arsenal, whether that be at the Emirates or Highbury. It was the first time ever that Liverpool had won at the Emirates so it was a very sweet moment regardless of quality of side that they were pitted against. It was widely recognised that this was Liverpool FC's best chance at gaining this victory and this was proved correct with Arsenal looking a shadow of the …
Progress Report: Jordan Henderson

Progress Report: Jordan Henderson

[caption id="attachment_3130" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Hendo in action"][/caption] As Jordan Henderson left the field in the 61st minute against Sunderland, Lucas Leiva would have been excused for breathing a sigh of relief. The heat is off, a new whipping boy is in town. Henderson has received some harsh treatment on radio phone-ins, message boards and on Twitter since his first competitive hour in a Liverpool shirt. In assessing whether this criticism is justified, the first place to look at is his …

Season Opener Statistics | Liverpool FC

There was so much optimism, so much positivity preceding the  2011/2012 season opener at Anfield. Everyone was expecting a good performance and because it was an opening game at Anfield, everyone expected a win. Well we didn't get it, although it wasn't all bad, there was some superb pass and move football in the first half which made the second half even worse. In the end if felt like the ice cream that you'd dropped on a hot summers day after the …
Liverpool FC vs. Sunderland AFC Preview

Liverpool FC vs. Sunderland AFC Preview

The Liverpool fans will be expecting a good start to the season after such a huge turnaround under Kenny Dalglish last season and the new signings have added a new level of optimism. Andy Carroll is now fully-fit and has enjoyed a successful pre-season, scoring three goals in six games. Opening day victories have been hard to come by for the Reds in previous years, winning only four of the previous 10. Last season started with a dogged 1-1 draw …
Andy Carroll - Big pressure, Big fee, Big man.

Andy Carroll - Big pressure, Big fee, Big man.

When Carroll was signed earlier this year, it is fair to say it was a "big" signing, for many reasons. Firstly, Carroll himself. 6ft 3, and 80kg. You only have to look at him to see his one big lad. Then there was his transfer fee. A record fee for us at £35million. Eclipsing the transfer of Suarez, which was confirmed not long before. And finally, who he was replacing. A "world class" striker, who despite his indifferent final 6 …

Player Profile: Luis Suarez

Player Profile: Luis Suarez

Luis Alberto Suárez Díaz, you may know him as just Luis Suarez or El Pistolero (for the way he celebrates his goals). It seems that as Liverpool fans we just can’t get enough of our £22.8 million playmaker …
Player Profile: Stewart Downing

Player Profile: Stewart Downing

On Friday 15th of July 2011 it was announced that Stewart Downing had completed his long awaited move to Liverpool Football Club. It has to be said that this signing has been somewhat underwhelming for most Liverpool fans, especially with the suggested price tag of £20 million. Although Stewart Downing may not be player that will set the world alight, he still has a lot to offer Liverpool. Also being a left-footed wide player he is something Liverpool have been missing for a long, long time …

The worth of Charlie Adam’s set piece creation

The worth of Charlie Adam’s set piece creation

[caption id="attachment_2947" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Charlie Adam"][/caption] Last month’s piece on the value of chance creation over the course of a season showed that there is some logic behind Liverpool’s decision to respectively sign and target Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing. Does the rationale extend to Charlie Adam, the Reds’ latest purchase? Although creating a healthy 64 chances in the league last season (Downing 85, Henderson 82), 45% of these came from set pieces (Downing 31%, Henderson 40%). The original analysis focused …
