Paulo Dybala: Our Next South American Hero? | AI's Xmas Wish List

Paulo Dybala: Our Next South American Hero? | AI's Xmas Wish List

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS GOALS! Because the team is certainly missing them. A far-cry from the inevitable blitzkrieg of net-bulgers in the 2013/14 season, this current Liverpool team struggle to hit the proverbial barn door this season. Of course losing the talismanic Luis Suarez to Barcelona didn’t help, nor the four-month long injury to his previous sidekick Daniel Sturridge, nor does the unreliability of the enigma that is Mario Balotelli help the team’s goal crisis. Liverpool are then …
Liverpool's Midfield Balance Without Gerrard

Liverpool's Midfield Balance Without Gerrard

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers reached new heights during his second season at the club, seeing his team finish 2nd in the league, just 2 points behind eventual winners Manchester City. After several seasons of disappointment, the Liverpool team looked rejuvenated under Rodgers, striking 101 goals over the course of the campaign and doing so in the most attractive of fashion; Suarez and Sturridge leading the line with 19-year-old Raheem Sterling operating at the peak of a diamond represented arguably the …

"Season Defining Fixture?" | Liverpool vs Stoke: Match Preview

August the 17th, 2013. A Simon Mignolet last-minute penalty save resulted into Liverpool ending up with a 1-0 win at home to Stoke, and thus kicking off the new league campaign in style. Would I have foreseen such a remarkable campaign to follow suit? Of course not, and here I sit, a year and a bit later with the same fixture about to be played, thinking the exact same thing, however this time, holding a completely dissimilar view. Important Information …
Raheem Sterling: The Best Player in the Premier League?

Raheem Sterling: The Best Player in the Premier League?

Every season you’re bombarded with tweets and articles about a world beating 18 or 19 year old playing here or there around Europe. Gotze, Hazard and Lamela all spring to mind from the last few campaigns. However, this year the player on everyone’s timeline is Raheem Sterling. He is easily working his way into as many column inches as the likes of Draxler and Deolufeu. High praise indeed but definitely deserved. There are really only two players who have outshone …
The Man Made of Glass | Daniel Sturridge

The Man Made of Glass | Daniel Sturridge

Against Aston Villa on Saturday, it was evident we lacked ‘something’ up front. I feel Sturridge is that ‘something’ – as well as Sterling, but he was on the bench. On Friday the 5th of September 2014, English striker Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool’s most prolific goal scorer in his first 50 games in the Premier league era, was declared injured with a thigh strain for up to three weeks*. *(If Sturridge is unfit for the entirety of three weeks, it would mean that …

Liverpool vs Aston Villa Match Preview | Key Battle: Henderson Vs Delph

Premier League action returns to Anfield after a 3 week hiatus as Liverpool try to build on their brilliant performance against Spurs. Aston Villa are the team heading up the M6 from the Midlands for the 17:30 kick off live on Sky Sports. Liverpool will be without main man up front Daniel Sturridge, who once again fell foul to the Hodgson's England training regime. Time for Balotelli to shine? Lallana? Even Borini? And what about that defence? One thing for …
Losing Luis Suarez - is it a Big Problem?

Losing Luis Suarez - is it a Big Problem?

The thought of writing this article was a no brainier. Throughout the last two and half months,  most football pundits have predicted Liverpool will fall down the pecking order this season -  just because they lost their talisman Luis Suarez. Nevertheless, in the words of fellow AnfieldIndex writer Ryan McTernan, "it would be reckless in the highest regard to dismiss the impact Luis Suarez had in his time at Anfield." This is not what I am doing. Without question Luis …
The Lucky Lucas Shirt

The Lucky Lucas Shirt

Rumours suggesting that Lucas Leiva could leave this summer may be music in the ears to some, in large part thanks to the massive regression in form shown by the Brazilian since the two long term injuries he suffered, and in some way has never truly recovered from. Sorry to be the party pooper but I'm not one of them, the news makes me slightly unhappy. It's not because I look at him and think he still has a lot …
Assessing Liverpool's Striker Targets: Eto’o, Bony, Cavani, Falcao and Balotelli

Assessing Liverpool's Striker Targets: Eto’o, Bony, Cavani, Falcao and Balotelli

It’s been almost a month since Luis Suarez signed for Barcelona and it seems every week that passed a new striker target is revealed. Liverpool will start the season with 3 recognised front men in Sturridge, Lambert and Borini with the latter potentially making a move to Sunderland before the end of the window - leaving Liverpool rather short up top. With Sturridge’s injury record and an ageing Rickie Lambert it seems pivotal for Liverpool to act and sign a …
