The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

The More Things Change, the More they Stay the Same for Liverpool FC

Seven points from three games represented an excellent start to the new season for Liverpool Football Club and, its embattled manager, Brendan Rodgers. A battling if blunt display against Stoke, followed by an unconvincing showing against Bournemouth had delivered 6 points from 6, before the Reds turned in an impressive display away at the Emirates. Things were looking decent-ish, at least in terms of results, and the performances seemed to be improving. Step forward West Ham at Anfield! Saturday's absolute …
Why Liverpool Should Take the Europa League Seriously

Why Liverpool Should Take the Europa League Seriously

The Europa League. It's a competition that splits opinion. Nothing new amongst the Liverpool fan base but belittling a European competition is a new one to me. Many fans this season want Liverpool to concentrate on the Premier League and try to finish in the top 4. It's admirable, but is it realistic? Will Liverpool break last season's top 4? It's a big ask in my opinion especially when the lesser of the top 4 sides, Man United, have strengthened …
How Important Should Set Pieces Be For Liverpool?

How Important Should Set Pieces Be For Liverpool?

Set pieces are generally under utilised in the modern game. On numerous occasions recently you hear managers say their new £20 million target man can aid their team defensively but let's be honest, that's not why you're spending that money. Let's be honest, If you're spending £20/30 million on a striker you want him scoring set pieces, not defending them. If signing a big striker doesn't lead to an increase in set piece goals then you're using him wrong. There …
It's time to get dirty - Liverpool need some bite!

It's time to get dirty - Liverpool need some bite!

Cast your mind back to the last time Liverpool played at Stoke. Yes, that game. 'The 6-1', as it's become known. The humbling at the Britannia provided no finer example of the need for a streak of nastiness under Brendan Rodgers. A team being humiliated in this fashion by supposedly inferior opposition should have been frustrated. They should have been angry. Beyond angry. But as Stoke plundered goals one, two, three, four and five past a hapless Liverpool defence in …
Allan Rodrigues de Souza - A Scout Report on Liverpool's Brazilian Target

Allan Rodrigues de Souza - A Scout Report on Liverpool's Brazilian Target

Liverpool are interested in signing Internacional’s 18-year-old Brazilian midfielder Allan Rodrigues de Souza, with recent stories suggesting that a £500k deal is all but done. The club spotted the player during the Frenz International youth tournament in Malaysia and Indonesia earlier this year, where a Liverpool squad made up of youth players including Sergi Canos, Pedro Chirivela, and Harry Wilson, competed with other youth teams from across the globe. Internacional emerged victorious, defeating Argentine side Estudiantes in the final, but …
Why Buying Goals isn't that Straightforward for Liverpool

Why Buying Goals isn't that Straightforward for Liverpool

If Liverpool had goals last season they'd have finished 4th. That's the general consensus, and the main excuse, for people when they refuse to admit everything else wasn't up to standard either. Of course goals do win games but the need for goals is lessened if you have a functioning defence but I won't get into that again due to the fact I've written about it a few times already this season. What keeps creeping up on social media is …
Liverpool at a Crossroads

Liverpool at a Crossroads

Defeats are always hard to stomach, some more than others. Sometimes though, it’s not just about the defeats or the manner of them; it’s an accumulation of things that change the landscape. For over 50 years, trophies have been the currency that Liverpool Football Club has dealt in and the sad fact is that 10 major trophies in the last 25 years, including just 3 in the last 10 years, is simply not good enough for England’s most successful club. …
Liverpool Need a

Liverpool Need a "Real" Marquee Signing This Summer

It seems to me that a marquee signing means different things depending on who it is you speak to. Some will argue it's already a recognised star, some will say it's a player that takes your team to the next level but the majority of people will say it's an expensive signing. The actual definition of a marquee signing is 'exceptionally popular or skilled'. Adam Lallana is labelled as our summer marquee signing due to the fact he was the …
Steven Gerrard and The New Generation

Steven Gerrard and The New Generation

Since making his debut in 98, Steven Gerrard has won admiration and praise throughout the footballing world. In his prime, he terrorised defences with his unstoppable runs through midfield and his wonderful strike of the ball. We all know the player our captain was and we know the player he has become. The Gerrard of this season is a shadow of his former self and he continues to stain his legacy. Many fans across social media hope to never see …
Bogey Teams | The Epitome of Liverpool's Frustration

Bogey Teams | The Epitome of Liverpool's Frustration

For the centuries that this magnificent sport has been played, there is always that ‘one team’. The team that gets you so spontaneously dazzled as to why you can’t seem to break them down. From Tenerife to Real Madrid or Dundee Utd to FC Barcelona, everybody’s had one. Liverpool of course, being the wonderfully brilliant yet brain fart of a team that they are, have had many “bogey teams” over the last number of years. Looking back over maybe the …
