Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Jurgen Klopp has assembled arguably the most likeable Liverpool squad in memory. Whereas in the past, supporters would have a small selection of genuine heroes to choose from, they are now spoiled for choice. Everywhere you look, there are superb, Champions League-winning footballers who are also warm, down-to-earth characters, from Alisson in goal right the way through to Sadio Mane in attack. One player who manages to even stand out from this crowd is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: a loveable person and …
Daniel Agger - The Great Dane

Daniel Agger - The Great Dane

When the news broke last week that Daniel Agger was going to retire aged just 31, I was devastated. Here stands a player, who was a personal hero of mine, so cruelly robbed of what could have been the finest of careers, due to the failings of his body.

No Value for money? The January transfer myth

Unicorns. Myth. Loch Ness Monster. Myth. Bigfoot. Myth. My girlfriend saying she'll only go in one shop. Myth. No value in the January transfer window. Myth. All are spoken about as though they're fact when in reality they're no more than myths. Of course you can find the odd bit of evidence to support these claims, "Sam remember that time over Christmas 2012 when I went into the first shop and bought that coat", "Remember when we signed Andy Carroll …
Sakho - The Parisian titan's injury couldn't be crueller

Sakho - The Parisian titan's injury couldn't be crueller

rIt has been clear to Liverpool fans for a while that Mamadou Sakho is an absolute titan of a man. He shows a passion for the club that scousers can identify with, but more than that he is the complete modern centre-half. He is comfortable getting tight on strikers, stepping up and defending on his massive front foot, but he is also a fantastic defender in the box, never caught out of position and a fully committed header of the …

Are Liverpool in a Perpetual State of Transition?

Are Liverpool in a Perpetual State of Transition?

Evolution is inevitable. In football and in everyday life you change to adapt. So what's the difference between transition as a club and evolving? Why are some teams praised for adapting whilst others use being in transition as an excuse? Since Brendan Rodgers took the helm of Liverpool FC it feels like 'Liverpool are in transition' is one of the most overused sentences for fans and pundits alike. Many pin this on Brendan Rodgers, others like to associate the blame …

A GAME OF THRONES - Who will sit beside the Anfield Throne?

Brendan Rodgers: A Man For All Seasons?

Brendan Rodgers: A Man For All Seasons?

Fuming is one way to put it. Disgusted another. Sadly, not surprised. It’s been a full 30 odd hours since the West Ham game. I’ve been quiet, composed (to a degree) and quick to check myself before sending a tweet in rage at the issues that have been brewing for a while. I’ve been through a strange time lately.
