Liverpool FC - They've Got The Balls!

Liverpool FC - They've Got The Balls!

As a 34 year old Liverpool fan with a dodgy ticker, the last few years have been relatively easy to get through, stress wise. We haven't been that great and we haven't had much to play for at the business end of the season. Sure we've had times where we've played well and yes, we've had the derbies and the big team games to get excited about but compared to this season, we've had very little to get excited about. …
Why has 89 replaced 63 as Liverpool's new Magic Number?

Why has 89 replaced 63 as Liverpool's new Magic Number?

Neil Poole explains the significance of the number 63 in Liverpool’s recent history and why 89 is now the new number on the block. The complete irrelevance of the number 63 in the world is quite startling. At best, it’s the year that Joseph of Arimathea went to Glastonbury on the first Christian mission to Britain. Back then you could still pay somebody £10 to climb a ladder over the fence. There was no sitting on ‘GetRinsedTicketing.Com’ for two days …
Relax against Liverpool? All the best!

Relax against Liverpool? All the best!

‘Relax!’ ‘Guys, RELAX!’ screamed Ole Gunner Solskjaer as his team lead Liverpool 2-1. The Cardiff manager was visibly distressed at seeing his defence crumble with a mazy run into the box by Daniel Sturridge. The move eventually breaking down, the fear, however, remained. ‘Relax’ he pleaded, ‘Relax’. Alas it was too late. For the Cardiff players had already fallen under the spell of Liverpool’s attacking threat. In reality Cardiff had beaten themselves before they crossed the line. There’s not a …
Brendan Rodgers and the rebirth of Steven Gerrard

Brendan Rodgers and the rebirth of Steven Gerrard

At a time where many of us are patting ourselves on the back and saying, "I told you Brendan Rodgers was the man for us" and watching in admiration at how he is helping return us to our perch, I feel it is only right that I hold my hands up and admit to an area of his management that I didn't agree with and one I have spoken about on numerous previous occasions. That area is shaped like the …
Liverpool FC's Diamond Formation: An Analysis

Liverpool FC's Diamond Formation: An Analysis

How very interesting it was to sit down and watch Manchester United in Champions League action against Olympiacos, putting in a much better performance than that of three days previously against Liverpool (you know, the one in which we won 3-0? Remember that? Vaguely?). After their midfielders got bypassed and played through by Liverpool, they unearthed from the midst of nowhere, a ‘diamond’ system for the Olympiacos game which they reaped the rewards from with a much more fluid and …
Liverpool – A True Underdog Story (in the making)

Liverpool – A True Underdog Story (in the making)

It’s August 2009 Liverpool travel down to White Hart Lane for the opening game of the Premier League season. Xabi Alonso, Sami Hyypia and Alvaro Arbeloa had all departed Merseyside for pastures new and in came Alberto Aquilani, Glen Johnson and Sotirios Kyrgiakos. Expectation was high after strong previous season with many expecting Liverpool to kick on after narrowly missing out on the title to Manchester United. Liverpool lost the game 2-1, a sign of things to come with the …

Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee | The Outgoings

Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee | The Outgoings

Doubters. Something Brendan Rodgers has had to deal with throughout his brief period as Liverpool manager. Whether it be his credentials, his methods, his transfer signings, his bosses, or his vocabulary, there is nothing that has escaped the manager from ridicule. With particular regards to transfers, fans have spoken themselves to death in discussing who to sign, how much they are worth, how Ian Ayre will mess it up, what is a transfer committee, and how come we didn't sign …
Daniel Sturridge | Witness the Brendan Rodgers Effect

Daniel Sturridge | Witness the Brendan Rodgers Effect

Daniel Sturridge was a promising youngster at Manchester City when he first made his name. He didn’t manage to fulfil his potential as he never really got to play in his desired position or some could argue his attitude was not right. Sturridge just wasn’t cutting it at Manchester City even though it was reported that Mark Hughes was keen on keeping the young striker. This is when Chelsea came in for the youngster who had yet to fully show …
