Liverpool's Vice-Captaincy Conundrum

Liverpool's Vice-Captaincy Conundrum

As gracefully as he once glided up the pitch with the ball at his feet Daniel Agger has departed Liverpool to return to the club where his career began. His heavily tattooed body has finally given in to the demands of English football, demands which have seen him plagued by injuries, stopping him reaching the heights he was supposed …
Skrtel, Agger, Carragher | The Battle for the Centre

Skrtel, Agger, Carragher | The Battle for the Centre

[caption id="attachment_5247" align="aligncenter" width="280" caption="3 into 2: Battle for the centre"][/caption] This time last year was a good time to be a Liverpool fan. Up until Saturday 8th January 2011 we had endured one of the most challenging times in terms of club form and morale, with the “Liverpool way” seemingly being eroded in front of our eyes. In recent times there had been the Djimi Traore back heeled OG against Burnley in the otherwise glorious 2004/5 season. There was …
Liverpool’s Defensive Line – With and Without Carragher

Liverpool’s Defensive Line – With and Without Carragher

There has been an ongoing debate for some time now about the impact Jamie Carragher’s lack of pace has on the Liverpool defensive line. There is a theory that Carragher holds the line deep to prevent younger, quicker attackers stealing a march on him on the break. Carragher’s calf injury has inadvertently helped us find out whether this is true. By looking at the Liverpool defensive line with Carragher (against Norwich) and without him (against West Brom) we can test whether the theory has any basis in reality. …
Are we still dreaming for a team of Carraghers? | Jamie Carragher

Are we still dreaming for a team of Carraghers? | Jamie Carragher

“We all dream of a team of Carraghers” goes the Kop chant, but exactly how long will it be before we have a team-less Carragher? At the age of 33, Carragher’s best years are behind him, yet he remains a stalwart in the centre of defence. While some may say he has lost his pace, I would question how much pace he had in the first place. Instead, the Bootle-born defender possesses a greater understanding of the game that has …
Fulham Vs Liverpool - Basic Match Stats

Fulham Vs Liverpool - Basic Match Stats

Despite being at the risk of repeating ourselves from the article "Where the game was won" we just wanted to post some match stats from the Fulham Vs Liverpool game. These stats are normally available to our subscribers but we have used them in match reports before so we thought we'd share them even though we've already done our match report in the article mentioned above …
The statistical best and the worst: Defenders

The statistical best and the worst: Defenders

In this three part series of articles I will be looking at the statistics behind Liverpool's best and worst players in each position. After already conceding four more goals than last season, with three games still to be played, Liverpool's defenders have no doubt come under questioning this season. By starting to look at our defenders' tackling, this category came up with some strange results. Our two worst tackling full-backs so far this season have been Young Jack Robinson, only winning …
Partners At The Back (Carragher, Agger & Skrtel)

Partners At The Back (Carragher, Agger & Skrtel)

For a number of years now there has been much debate about who exactly makes up our best central defensive partnership. The 3 main players in this debate are the long serving Jamie Carragher, the misunderstood Martin Skrtel and the mostly injured Daniel Agger …
Our best captain of the 2010/11 season

Our best captain of the 2010/11 season

Unlike previous seasons Liverpool have had to use three captains, due to injuries and suspension to our normal candidate Steven Gerrard. So far in Gerrard’s absence Jamie Carragher Liverpool’ s vice captain has taken the step up, but in both of their absences fan’s favourite Pepe Reina has made the arm band his own. But which captain has had the most success this season? Jamie Carragher, has the highest win percentage as skipper at 55%, while Reina is placed in …
What Liverpool FC need (Part I) - The Left Back.

What Liverpool FC need (Part I) - The Left Back.

  We could sit here all day, and debate what areas of our current squad needs strengthening. We could also discuss potential targets, and how realistic a chance of a certain team accepting a bid, and a certain player joining.   In fact, I have read many a debate on the the forums here (Anfield Index Forum), I've had many a discussion over a beer, and hear various shouts on the terraces at match days. In these discussions, I think …
