Just Get Raheem Sterling Tied Down!

Just Get Raheem Sterling Tied Down!

The word 'Legend' is banded around a lot in football. The Steven Gerrard all-star game was billed to be past Liverpool 'legends' playing in one game. The truth is though they aren't legends, not club legends anyway. This attitude breeds mediocrity. The fans of Liverpool Football Club shouldn't be using International success as a way to back up their claims that they've got and had legends playing for them. With the exception of Steven Gerrard, and perhaps Jamie Carragher, the …
Top 4 or Not? How does it change Liverpool's Summer plans?

Top 4 or Not? How does it change Liverpool's Summer plans?

The loss to United dented our chances of finishing in the top 4, but just how detrimental would not finishing in the top 4 be to our summer plans? Yes, we all want Champions League football, but given the first half of the season it was always going to be a big ask and I'd like to think we'd started planning for the summer in January. Surely we've identified players who will improve our side right now, but not only …
Liverpool FC | Go Fourth and Qualify!

Liverpool FC | Go Fourth and Qualify!

The Monday after another three point display at for Brendan Rodgers's Liverpool, and this week fans of the Mersey Reds have got more than a Premier League victory to celebrate. Seemingly, at times, built from crystal, Daniel Sturridge's goalscoring return made it abundantly clear to the home crowd, and millions of football fans worldwide, exactly the kind of potency in front of goal that the Reds had been missing since August. Sturridge had to wait until past the 70 minute …

Cup-Tied or Hamstrung? | Liverpool FC

I mean, winning breeds winning; it's a great way to gather momentum; the players just want to get out there and play; When you're winning you want to win again, and if you're losing, you just want to go out there and put things right.

Liverpool's Small Club Mentality

Liverpool's Small Club Mentality

"Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome"
- Isaac Asimov There is a myopic idealism amongst many Liverpool fans that once Daniel Sturridge makes his long awaited return everything will fall into place and the Reds will once again get Champions League football. The void left by the former Chelsea man has been used as an excuse for how the season has turned out. How the club is once again in transition, a transition …
Attack isn't The Best Form of Defence for Liverpool FC

Attack isn't The Best Form of Defence for Liverpool FC

Attack isn’t the best form of Defence. The shambles known as the Liverpool defence has been a, if not THE, topic of conversation amongst Liverpool fans ever since Brendan Rodgers took over at the club.  With the goals against column worsening with each season Rodgers’ is at the helm, its little surprise the defensive signings are put under the microscope. Yet, surprisingly, a number of fans want to strengthen the attack in the January transfer window. After the success of …
Liverpool Drop Out of the Champions League: What Next?

Liverpool Drop Out of the Champions League: What Next?

As painful and frustrating as it was to watch against Basel, the Liverpool manager, players and fans have come to the conclusion that we just weren't good enough. There were a couple of poor decisions that went against us on Tuesday, but overall, it was the performance over the six games that cost us, not just one. The first half performance was strange in the sense that we needed to see so much in terms of urgency, yet the setup …
Brendan Rodgers: On Thin Ice

Brendan Rodgers: On Thin Ice

The weekend saw Liverpool's run of abject form continue, as they slumped to a fourth consecutive defeat, further extending their winless run in the Premier League. Not since an injury time own goal spared the Reds' blushes at Loftus Road on 19th October, have Liverpool recorded three points. In fact, a last gasp home win over Swansea, in the Capital One Cup, continues to be the Anfield side's only victory in the last seven - a run which has witnessed …
Them Bulgarians Again - Looking Ahead to Liverpool v Ludogorets

Them Bulgarians Again - Looking Ahead to Liverpool v Ludogorets

“Them Scousers again”, reads the title of the excellent book sent out to Liverpool fan club members for the 2014 season. Aptly back in the Champions League, the club are celebrating half a century of battling against the finest teams the continent has to offer. A league win in the 1963/64 season saw Liverpool enter the competition for the first time since its inception in 1955, beating the memorably named Icelandic team Knattspyrnufélag Reykjavíkur 11-1 over two legs in the …
God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

"It doesn't matter what you do, we've got God on our side", a fairly common retort from a Liverpool fan in the mid to late nineties. No matter who you were bantering with, which one of your mates' sides LFC were facing that week - United, Arsenal, Spurs, Newcastle, even Sheffield Wednesday at the time - it wasn't important, because we had God, and He was gonna win it for us. And, more often than not, He did! A shining …
