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 …

Hodging your Bets | Roy Hodgson and the FA

Hodging your Bets | Roy Hodgson and the FA

First things first I am not a fan of the England football team, I have nothing against them or anything, it’s just that club football is everything to me. However whilst I’m not a fan of England I am even less of a fan of incompetence. You may think this is where I’m going to go to town on Roy Hodgson, and to an extent you’d be right but not entirely. Whatever you think of Roy Hodgson I think we …
Clause? What Clause? The Luis Suarez Story

Clause? What Clause? The Luis Suarez Story

In this article I will analyse the complicated world of football contracts, in particular focusing on release clauses, buy-out clauses and the difference between the two. Less than a year ago Liverpool fans were subjected to one the most farcical transfer sagas in recent years. Like football’s equivalent of the Stark’s, Marca issued their monotonous warning again and again.  “Madrid, is coming” and Suarez will be leaving soon. Instead we received news of a bid from notorious penny-pincher Arsenezer Scrooge …
Is the Smart Money on Liverpool?

Is the Smart Money on Liverpool?

Four, long years. Four years of Champions League football wilderness, starting with the capitulation of the Rafa regime, continuing with Hodgeball and the return of the King, and most recently, an investment in what is fast becoming a special managerial talent in Brendan Rodgers. I’m circumventing a key issue in those four years, of course – the change in ownership.  The shift from Hicks & Gillett to FSG is somewhat embryonic – as if the old Liverpool is suddenly poised …
Jon Flanagan: Do his performances warrant an extended run in 1st team?

Jon Flanagan: Do his performances warrant an extended run in 1st team?

Jon Flanagan has been a regular in the Liverpool side ever since starting at right wing-back in the Premier League game against Arsenal in early November. Since then, Flanagan has been swapped over to the left due to Jose Enrique being ruled out after picking up an injury. The Liverpool-born full back has been putting in some solid performances ever since and has really impressed most supporters. Critics may have their own opinions on Flanagan but I for one am …

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 …
Arsenal Vs Liverpool: Full Time Statistics

Arsenal Vs Liverpool: Full Time Statistics

Liverpool shared the spoils at the Emirates Stadium after a controversial ending to the game. Eight minutes of injury time were added on because of Jamie Carraghar's accidental KO after a clash of heads with team-mate John Flanagan. The controversial part was that Liverpool were awarded a penalty after the eight minutes of injury time were remaining. Liverpool fans will argue that the time given to take Arsenal's penalty and the celebration afterwards is what was added on for Liverpool to then score. …
