The "Klopp Out" Brigade: An Embarrassment To Liverpool's Fanbase

If you want Jurgen Klopp to be sacked as Liverpool manager, you are talking complete nonsense and are everything wrong with modern football. It really is that simple. Opinions are part of what makes being a football fan so much fun, but when people spout knee-jerk bile for the sake of it, it becomes irrelevant. All it shows is that they clearly don’t understand the game, and that they will only ever be happy with the Reds if they win …
What Jurgen Klopp Has To Change To Avoid Season Derailing

What Jurgen Klopp Has To Change To Avoid Season Derailing

In the wake of Liverpool's frustrating 1-1 draw against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday, manager Jurgen Klopp and his men were left with more questions than answers. 2 points dropped against the Clarets added a run-of-the-mill seven days for the Reds, following a 6-0 harrowing at Manchester City followed by a 2-2 draw against Sevilla in their curtain raiser Champions League match at Anfield. And on Tuesday night, the club compounded a dreadful fortnight with a disappointing 2-0 …
FSG - Learning From Past Mistakes?

FSG - Learning From Past Mistakes?

Things have changed a lot in Liverpool football club and in football in general since Fenway Sports Group acquired the Reds back in 2010. FSG themselves have evolved as owners after trying several different approaches in managing the organization within the club with questionable success. It is still too early to rate this summer's deals (or the lack of them). Some supporters are cautiously optimistic, for others failing to sing a starting caliber centre-back is inexcusable. LFC went after top …
Liverpool 3 Liverpool 3 - Attack v Defence

Liverpool 3 Liverpool 3 - Attack v Defence

Welcome to Groundhog Day. The 2017-18 season kicked off at 12.30pm on Saturday and by 12.38pm Liverpool’s defensive frailties were already on show. It was the familiar story. A corner, a near post ball, the flailing of limbs and yellow shirts whirling away in celebration. 1-0 Watford. I was yards away from that corner flag at the time and had the same view as the corner taker, Jose Holebas. I noticed that Watford had a player unmarked at the edge …
Liverpool Always One Step Behind Until they Fix Their Shaky Foundations

Liverpool Always One Step Behind Until they Fix Their Shaky Foundations

Ask any Liverpool fan, or any football fan for that matter, about where they want their team to be challenging and they’ll give you the same answer. Naturally, they want to be vying for the title, mounting an assault on the domestic cup and pushing for that all-important Champions League trophy. In order to do that, you need to have water tight foundations and carry real authority and verve going forward. Liverpool have such prowess in the final third of …
Reviewing A Banquet Without Wine - A History of the Reds in the PL Era

Reviewing A Banquet Without Wine - A History of the Reds in the PL Era

When offered the opportunity to read an advance copy of A Banquet Without Wine, I eagerly accepted; it was a welcome break from the academic historical literature which my studies demand, and, given my experience with previous works from The Tomkins Times, my qualitative expectations were high. Beyond that, I remained open to hearing an interpretation of Liverpool's recent history, that I, like many fans, have lived through, and is well versed in. For Liverpool fans, the story detailed within A Banquet …
Mbad Idea: Liverpool Already Have Their Number 9

Mbad Idea: Liverpool Already Have Their Number 9

Reports of Liverpool’s chase for Kylian Mbappe have lingered throughout May and June.  The Reds have been tracking him for quite a while and have not been put off by his rocketing notoriety or his price-tag.  Good for them.  Let’s be honest, if he were signed it would change perceptions among supporters and rivals alike and Jurgen Klopp would find an effective way to use him. However, with Mané a key addition last year and Salah brought into the fold last …
The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

The Seven Year Itch | FSG - A Review

In October of 2010, Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC for £300 million. In his first statement as owner, John Henry claimed,
'We're here to win and we'll do whatever is necessary.'
Fast-forward almost seven years later, and fans are still divided as to whether FSG have been good owners for the club, and whether the club has progressed, regressed, or simply remained stationary for this period. Under FSG, Liverpool FC have had four managers: Roy Hodgson (sacked January 2011), Kenny …
FSG: Shape Up or Ship Out

FSG: Shape Up or Ship Out

It's happened again... it's happened agai-ai-ain... Tottenham Hotspur, it's happened again!
So goes the now famous Arsenal song that was aimed at Spurs fans every season for two decades, when the day arrived each year, and it was confirmed that, yet again, their North London rivals wouldn't finish above them in the Premier League - what became known as St. Totteringham's Day. Clearly, that song was rendered irrelevant the season just gone when Spurs finished some eleven points …
Revisiting & Respecting Rodgers

Revisiting & Respecting Rodgers

In light of the treble-winning climax to his first season at Celtic, I’ve recognised the end of the 16/17 campaign to be a suitable time to revisit Brendan Rodgers’ time at Liverpool. In Rodgers’ first full season away from Anfield, he’s managed to secure the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup, and the Scottish Premiership via an unbeaten season. However, the reaction from a significant number of Liverpool fans towards Rodgers’ success has been somewhat bitter, disrespectful and unsupportive, and …
