Keepers and Context | Bournemouth 4 Liverpool 3

Many years ago a fanzine editor gave me a piece of advice that I will take to my grave. Whereas he had to write copy for a newspaper shortly after the final-whistle while the blood was up, I had a few days grace to compose myself and write with the luxury of time. He said to me - ‘Never write angry. Always sleep on it. Let it sink in.’ Hence, I’m going to be asking you to calm down about …

Damien Comolli and his Liverpool Flops

Damien Comolli and his Liverpool Flops

Damien Comolli decided to piggyback on the recent success of Jordan Henderson to once again get his name in the headlines. The ex-Director of Football at Liverpool has claimed the club's owners fired him after telling him that £16million man Jordan Henderson was a waste of money.  In quotes taken from a report in the Daily Mirror the Frenchman went on to say:
“The day I got sacked they [Liverpool’s owners] told me I had made a big mistake …
Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

The Transfer Window has been officially open for nearly a month now and Liverpool's two biggest signings have been players from within the Premier League. Both Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield for a combined £55 Million. Most Reds fans must have a strong feeling of deja-vu about such deals.

Do FSG need to leave for Liverpool to Evolve?

Do FSG need to leave for Liverpool to Evolve?

The credit Fenway Sports Group built up with the Liverpool fans when saving the club from going into administration has all but ran out. There only so much slack you can cut them for bringing the club back from the dead before it turns into resentment due to always having to look for excuses as to why Liverpool aren't progressing on the pitch. It festers deep down in all of us. When they rocked up at Anfield Tom Werner announced …
Buying Players vs Shopping for Clothes: The Similarities

Buying Players vs Shopping for Clothes: The Similarities

Twice a year, football clubs from all over Europe get the chance to go shopping for players. And for fans it’s one of the most exciting moments of the season, because it could either make or break their season. You go into a store looking for a watch, because the one you have is either broken, old, or you just want a new one. When it comes to buying a player and even clothes, there are lots of things to …
Henderson - Will He Be Back?

Henderson - Will He Be Back?

To Infinity and Beyond… I feel I’ve let our captain down.  His story is similar to that of Woody in Toy Story.  The arrival of Buzz Lightyear, coupled with an injury-ravaged campaign has meant that Jordan Henderson has been pushed to the back of my mind.   In this case, our Buzz Lightyear may well be Bobby Firmino in his debut season, a rapidly developing Emre Can or an ever-dangerous Philippe Coutinho.  Heroes have been emerging at Anfield over the …
Liverpool's Five Top of the Flops of the Last Five Years

Liverpool's Five Top of the Flops of the Last Five Years

Anfield Index is five years old! It's that strange age when the adorable toddler you once knew begins to get a little less cute and little more annoying. The 8am tantrums begin when getting ready for school. Incessant questions on absolutely everything in the entire universe. Questions of which you quite clearly have all the answers to. BUT Anfield Index isn't a child, it's an institution; a medium for Liverpool fans the world over to discuss, share, provide, debate, vent …
No Value for money? The January transfer myth

No Value for money? The January transfer myth

Unicorns. Myth. Loch Ness Monster. Myth. Bigfoot. Myth. My girlfriend saying she'll only go in one shop. Myth. No value in the January transfer window. Myth. All are spoken about as though they're fact when in reality they're no more than myths. Of course you can find the odd bit of evidence to support these claims, "Sam remember that time over Christmas 2012 when I went into the first shop and bought that coat", "Remember when we signed Andy Carroll …
A New Hope: Liverpool's Resurgence

A New Hope: Liverpool's Resurgence

“This time we’ll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.” – C3PO.
A long time ago, in the annals of English football, there was a club... But this was no ordinary club. 18 League Titles, 5 European Cups and dozens of alternative trophies had launched Liverpool into the status of Global Superpower. Having fought against common enemies and emerged victorious, a new threat emerged. Internal divisions and bitterness over its nostalgic past had removed the club’s collective identity. …
