Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee: The Criteria

Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee: The Criteria

The dust has yet to settle on the wild and wondrous campaign of 2013/14, yet the transfer rumour mill is in full swing; with Liverpool its traditional epicentre. However, among the traditional nonsensical reports of Ricardo Quaresma finally sealing his move to Liverpool and Simao finally receiving the call from Senor Rafa to board that plane, Kopites have taken to social media sites, forums and pubs to discuss just who is needed at Anfield next season; coupled with those to …

Liverpool's surprise package of the season so far

Liverpool's surprise package of the season so far

In the midst of the latest in a seemingly never ending series of International breaks, the Anfield Index staff got together and decided to take a look at Liverpool's season so far. The highs, the lows, the surprise packages and the disappointments. In this article I have chosen to highlight the form of a player who has surprised me this season and I’m quietly confident he will have surprised you too. This player was widely expected to leave Liverpool in the summer after enduring a torrid 12/13 …
Liverpool 4 Fulham 0 | Match Reaction & Stats

Liverpool 4 Fulham 0 | Match Reaction & Stats

When Brendan Rodgers first arrived at Anfield, he did something that few managers have done before him; he met with the fans and in every interview he tried to explain his vision for Liverpool and hoped it would stick. He did this in order to educate us, to bring us on the journey as we all tried to pick ourselves up from the false dawn of Kenny Dalglish returning as the club manager. Rodgers used words like transition, pressing, tempo …
Three At The Back Can Still Work for Liverpool

Three At The Back Can Still Work for Liverpool

Against Arsenal last week we attempted to employ the same system we used so successfully against West Brom: 3 central defenders, with two wing-backs. Clearly it didn’t go well, and it led to a very poor first half performance from Liverpool. This prompted Rodgers to revert to four at the back for the second half, which brought about a marginally better (though still wholly underwhelming) performance. Thanks to this one poor game, a lot of reactionary fans have started shouting …
Liverpool | It's All About Shooting | Statistical & Graphical Review

Liverpool | It's All About Shooting | Statistical & Graphical Review

Much has been made this season about our lack of goals and our poor conversion rate. In fact, we have been consistently in the bottom three all season when it comes to conversion rates, hovering in and around the 10% mark. This week however, we’ve reached a new low and are now bottom of that table with only an 8.5% conversion rate. When you consider our rivals for the Champion’s League places, Arsenal (15%), Chelsea (13) and Newcastle (16% - …
Skrtel, Agger, Carragher | The Battle for the Centre

Skrtel, Agger, Carragher | The Battle for the Centre

[caption id="attachment_5247" align="aligncenter" width="280" caption="3 into 2: Battle for the centre"][/caption] This time last year was a good time to be a Liverpool fan. Up until Saturday 8th January 2011 we had endured one of the most challenging times in terms of club form and morale, with the “Liverpool way” seemingly being eroded in front of our eyes. In recent times there had been the Djimi Traore back heeled OG against Burnley in the otherwise glorious 2004/5 season. There was …
Bolton vs Liverpool | Passing Triangles - Graphical & Stats Preview

Bolton vs Liverpool | Passing Triangles - Graphical & Stats Preview

Next up is a trip to Owen Coyle’s Bolton Wanderers where we will look to put our recent problems at Anfield behind us and try to continue our good away form. In the previous meeting at Anfield this season Liverpool came out winners with a 3-1 scoreline. Bolton go into the game sitting second from bottom in the league table and with a last 6 that reads LWDLWL. That form guide includes defeats against, Man United, Newcastle and Fulham. However …
