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 …
What would signing Mario Gotze mean for Coutinho?

What would signing Mario Gotze mean for Coutinho?

Early last week German tabloids started to report that Bayern Munich weren't in contract negotiations with Mario Gotze to have him commit his future to the club. That's not to say he won't be offered a new contract but by all accounts Bayern tend to get their contract sorted before Christmas. With less than 18 months remaining on his current Bayern deal could the little German be on the move this summer, and would a reunion with Klopp be something …
Liverpool beating Chelsea is the sweetest thing in football

Liverpool beating Chelsea is the sweetest thing in football

For  a Liverpool fan, there are very few feelings that can top the joy at the final whistle of a victory over our age-old rivals, Everton and Manchester United. What could be sweeter than wins over your local rivals and long-term competitive rivals? Well, the answer to that of course is beating Chelsea.

Starting Again With a New Manager - Liverpool and FSG

The Calm before the Storm. It's always a little difficult when you're having to start over in any walk of life. You get to start afresh and there must be a fear that if you get it wrong, again, you may not be able to recover. Outsiders looking in may consider it an easy job when a football club is looking to appoint a new manager, but is it? You're supposed to look to the future whilst judging likely candidates …
Liverpool's Problems Extend Far Beyond Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool's Problems Extend Far Beyond Brendan Rodgers

The pressure on Brendan Rodgers couldn’t be greater, and the cracks are beginning to show, just as they did for Liverpool managers of the past. The end of days for recent Liverpool managers has been signalled with a loss of their public dignity, and Rodgers is no different to the rest in this regard. Liverpool’s performances on the pitch have perhaps reflected the increasing unease seeping into the Northern Irishman’s public persona. However, it is vitally important that as fans, we …
Restoring Liverpool's Identity

Restoring Liverpool's Identity

Make Us Dream Again “Why do you care so much? It’s just a game. You can’t let it affect your life like that.” They’ll never understand. We’re a tricky bunch, us. Frivolous and fickle, temperamental and volatile. We want success, as all humans do; we invest hours and hours of our lives into it, in fact, but show someone on the outside the investment and they’ll deem it totally void; incessantly pointless. It’s just a game after all, they players …
FSG: The Caretakers Role coming to an end?

FSG: The Caretakers Role coming to an end?

A desolate house gives off a bad first impression. You see the exterior and it's judged purely on that. You don't see what's beneath the cod web and boarded up windows. You look at the rickety, rotted beams that barely keep the house standing and think it's just been poorly looked after. Set foot on the staircase and the creaks of the once lavish wood will tell you all you need to know of times gone by. One more storm …
