Would Winning Alone Suffice?

Would Winning Alone Suffice?

If one reads the title of this piece, it would not be too far fetched to assume that readers might think they have entered an Arsenal/Chelsea fans blog site by accident, as this is a topic which has been a bug bear for Arsenal fans during their trophy drought ridden years. The terms 'winning ugly', 'winning at all costs', 'beautiful football', 'passing the ball into the net' 'park the bus' etc. are jibes which are often involved in such discussions. …
Rodgers Has 99 Problems and Big Games Are One!

Rodgers Has 99 Problems and Big Games Are One!

Nearing the end of a forgetful season it's easy to do one of two things; either remind yourself of the poor start of the season or at every given opportunity brag about the unbeaten streak we had at the start of 2015. In isolation both tell a completely different story but the season should be judged as a whole and it's interesting to see that in the big games for The Reds they've not matched expectation or performed as expected. …

Liverpool fans haven’t had much to smile about in recent weeks. Exit from the FA Cup after defeat in the semi-final against Aston Villa last week topped off a disappointing …
Brendan Rodgers' Identity Thief

Brendan Rodgers' Identity Thief

So, does anybody know what happened to Brendan Rodgers? You know the one I mean, right? The one that had the dossier that impressed FSG so much they broke the structure they had in mind to appoint him. The one that had an ethos that the Liverpool fans got behind straight away, the whole death by football idea. The man with the supposed plan.

"And we're off!" - Liverpool's Race for Top Four

Amid the meritorious hyperboles circulating around numerous timelines on social media, be it Twitter or Facebook, there is a considerable amount to be joyous about at the moment. After the dark days of December; the perpetual post-weekend depression after another dismal Liverpool display and the crushing notion of missing out on fourth - Brendan's "Tricky Reds" have well and truly reinstalled at least some of the hope from last season. Six points against Southampton and Manchester City in the space of …

Looking Between The Lines | Liverpool FC Tactical Analysis

Looking Between The Lines | Liverpool FC Tactical Analysis

In modern day football, the space between the lines is one of the most key areas, if not the key area in attack. One of the most simple reasons for this is that a player who positions himself in this space is theoretically unmarked. If they are to be marked it generally requires one or two defending players to momentarily break shape to go and confront him, thereby leaving space elsewhere. A player of course doesn't have to be marked …
Attack isn't The Best Form of Defence for Liverpool FC

Attack isn't The Best Form of Defence for Liverpool FC

Attack isn’t the best form of Defence. The shambles known as the Liverpool defence has been a, if not THE, topic of conversation amongst Liverpool fans ever since Brendan Rodgers took over at the club.  With the goals against column worsening with each season Rodgers’ is at the helm, its little surprise the defensive signings are put under the microscope.

God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

"It doesn't matter what you do, we've got God on our side", a fairly common retort from a Liverpool fan in the mid to late nineties. No matter who you were bantering with, which one of your mates' sides LFC were facing that week - United, Arsenal, Spurs, Newcastle, even Sheffield Wednesday at the time - it wasn't important, because we had God, and He was gonna win it for us. And, more often than not, He did! A shining …
