Should Milner Be Left Back On The Bench?

Should Milner Be Left Back On The Bench?

Hey, you! Yes, you - the person refreshing their Twitter feed incessantly with a daft grin plastered all over their face. Now, I realise you're all excited by the apparently imminent arrival of Virgil Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah, but weren't you the one that was having a good old moan a couple of days ago about the club's lack of ambition? Didn't you compose a string of strongly worded Facebook posts about how Liverpool's unwillingness to spend a fortune …
A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A Liverpool Problem, Not a Klopp Problem

A lot has been said recently with regards to Liverpool’s latest slump in form, that saw the Reds lose three home games in a row, go from the red arrows to paper planes and relinquish their chance in two very good cup competitions. Probably for the first time in his tenure, fans are (and rightly so) asking questions of manager Jurgen Klopp, and this is well within anyone’s rights to do so. That being said, I do have to disagree with …
Liverpool's Late Winners

Liverpool's Late Winners

Learning to Love the Fat Lady’s Tune When Sadio Mané reacted fastest to the rebound, breaking Everton hearts on Monday night, he unleashed the most primal act in all of us. If you weren’t at Goodison, then, like me, you were up off the couch, fists clenched with the most guttural of roars leaving your throat. Relief, coupled with mild disbelief, takes over. You watch the players celebrate, dreading the linesman’s flag, then you hear Mike Dean’s whistle during the …
Liverpool's Attack: Two's A Party Three's A Crowd?

Liverpool's Attack: Two's A Party Three's A Crowd?

As the season draws closer, there is a certain situation not many are talking about... With the signing of Mane and early captures of Grujic and Matip, Klopp has most of his team settled down with places earmarked for all personnel. But the one position where Liverpool truly have a conundrum is the spot for the solitary striker and no-one seems to be heeding to this issue of who this lone number 9 is going to be throughout the season. Back in …
DoF Fantasy Series Part 4: Premier League Restricted

DoF Fantasy Series Part 4: Premier League Restricted

We’ve all been screaming, sighing, boiling, enraged, agonized, infuriated, and outraged at the thought of buying Premier League proven players rather than vying for the rising talents of Europe, and rightly so, because there’s not such thing as Premier League proven players when statistically there’s been no difference between the performance of a player that arrives from a different country as to players who’ve had experience in English football. But to be the devil’s advocate, I’m going to try and …
James Milner: Divisive, but increasingly brilliant

James Milner: Divisive, but increasingly brilliant

I have spent the whole of James Milner’s long and illustrious career trying to decide how good he is at football. He has forever baffled me. He was tipped as England’s new wonderkid when he burst onto the scene for Leeds United back in the early 2000s, but barring a few glimpses of class, I remained unconvinced. His spells at Newcastle and Aston Villa seemed to pass me by a little - I was too busy obsessing about how good …
Robbie Fowler: God Amongst Men

Robbie Fowler: God Amongst Men

According to one of its definitions on www.dictionary.com, a God is: ‘One of several deities, especially a male deity, presiding over some portion of worldly affairs.’ – A worldy affair, for example, of bringing joy the world over. A deity, I didn’t know, is defined as: ‘Divine character or nature, especially that of the Supreme Being.’  - Devine in nature, being extremely good, by way of skill and ability. Only a fool would say Robbie Fowler didn’t create joy the …

Liverpool FC - Make me a Believer

Top 4? It's the hope that kills you!

Top 4? It's the hope that kills you!

Top 4? It's the hope that kills you! I watched something happen to this Liverpool team over the past week. They went to Wembley and after a slow start and falling behind, ended up running Manchester City down to the wire. But sadly, it was not to be. The Liverpool performance in the Final, whilst better, was still some way short of the lofty expectations that Liverpool supporters of my age group were so used to identifying with, but it …
Analysis: Liverpool Goals scored with and without Benteke

Analysis: Liverpool Goals scored with and without Benteke

Christian Benteke has had a mixed debut season with Liverpool. From the match winning goals to the many missed chances, he's really showed why every single Liverpool fan was 'right' about the Reds signing him this summer. On one side are those that wanted him for his 'goals', and yes he does score goals and win you games. On the flip side to that though are the ones who thought goals aside he offers very little else and doesn't really …
