Liverpool's win over Sunderland - different types of winning

Liverpool's win over Sunderland - different types of winning

Generally speaking, wins come in different categories. So far this season, we’ve had the rollercoaster (Arsenal, Crystal Palace), the batterings (Leicester, Hull and Watford), the bossed win (Chelsea) and the routine (Derby and Burton Albion). Saturday saw us find a new stream. The eked out win. The hard yards. Of course, it wasn’t supposed to be that way. Before the game, there was talk of a double digit victory and of David Moyes walking onto the pitch after half an …
The Terrible Tale of Danny Ings (So Far)

The Terrible Tale of Danny Ings (So Far)

A real shame this one. The early years of Danny Ings’ career have seen him take a refreshing route to the top that seems to be all the rage these days. Starting out with Bournemouth in League Two, he, like his former South Coast club, has climbed the football ladder and was sitting pretty at the very top step upon joining Liverpool in June 2015. Fans at both Bournemouth and his next club, Burnley, admired the energetic determination of a …
Time for Studge to budge from Liverpool

Time for Studge to budge from Liverpool

Before I get started on this article, let’s get a few things out of the way. I’m a big fan of Daniel Sturridge; I think he’s one of the league’s best finishers and can be a world beater on his day. Secondly, this is my opinion. As Henry Jackson touched upon in his piece for Anfield Index, there is no need for Liverpool fans to slaughter each other for differences in opinion. I don’t like Alberto Moreno, you may like …
Danny Ings bridges football and reality gap

Danny Ings bridges football and reality gap

There has always been the resounding criticism towards the business of football that footballers are out tune with reality with fancy sports cars, ballooned wages and the vast array of public affection (and hatred) clouding players’ minds. What is often seen with this privilege that footballers enjoy is, exaggerated egos, societal attitudes that places themselves above anyone and a greed that is usually unparalleled. Faced with this reality, fans are usually out of touch with their footballer counterparts and this …
Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

Premier League Proven isn't always a negative

The Transfer Window has been officially open for nearly a month now and Liverpool's two biggest signings have been players from within the Premier League. Both Sadio Mane and Gini Wijnaldum arrived at Anfield for a combined £55 Million. Most Reds fans must have a strong feeling of deja-vu about such deals. Since Fenway Sports Group bought the club Liverpool have spent over £200 Million on Premier League proven players with varied success. Despite the questionable success of this tactic …
Danny Ings could be Klopp's Dark Horse

Danny Ings could be Klopp's Dark Horse

Daniel Sturridge is the dancing man and Divock Origi is Big Div. Both have a cult-like following amongst Liverpool fans. They're put on a pedestal and they're fiercely protected. Like a proud Mother saying no girl is good enough for her son, Reds fans respond similarly when other strikers are mentioned. One such striker is Danny Ings. He's a victim of circumstance purely because he's not Daniel Sturridge or Divock Origi. Already on the books at Liverpool, he's often overlooked …
2016/2017 - The Season of Sturridge?

2016/2017 - The Season of Sturridge?

Love him or loathe him we as Liverpool fans have to accept that Daniel Sturridge's Liverpool career has been a bit of an unsolved mystery. The mystery revolves around whether the year Liverpool finished as runners up in the Premier League and Sturridge hit over 20 goals was an anomaly. As bizarre as it sounds people do loathe Sturridge. They resent the fact we've been so reliant on him and he hasn't been there to shoulder the burden. To them …
Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

Can the Attack Fire Liverpool into the Top 4?

The Liverpool Echo, more specifically James Pearce, recently published an article informing Liverpool fans that Jurgen Klopp no longer had an interest in Bayern Munich's Mario Gotze and he was happy with his attacking options moving forward into the new season. Given the Reds were looking to bring in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe and Rennes' Ousmane Dembele it does strike me as odd that after only one attacking signing coming in so far this Summer in Sadio Mane, and with Jordon …
Liverpool's Transfer Committee Shows Patience is Necessary

Liverpool's Transfer Committee Shows Patience is Necessary

Liverpool have this reputation in the transfer market for being grossly negligent in their recruitment of players. Make no bones about it, Liverpool have spent recklessly in the past and signed some average players for extortionate fees. There's no denying that and there's no escaping it. As supporters of the club it's our cross to bear. Fans of other clubs taunt us with the fees we've splurged on players like Andy Carroll, Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic and Christian …
Criticising Klopp's Debut season is Lazy

Criticising Klopp's Debut season is Lazy

It's bewildering to me but there are some fans who are dissatisfied with how Jurgen Klopp's first season as Reds boss panned out. A run to the Europa League final littered with memorable moments and a League Cup final wasn't enough to appease an impatient, Premier League deprived bunch of fans. Those who seem offended at the God like status Klopp already has with the Anfield faithful. Tony Evans recently wrote a piece for ESPN about Klopp's debut season in …
