Brendan Rodgers' Identity Thief

Brendan Rodgers' Identity Thief

So, does anybody know what happened to Brendan Rodgers? You know the one I mean, right? The one that had the dossier that impressed FSG so much they broke the structure they had in mind to appoint him. The one that had an ethos that the Liverpool fans got behind straight away, the whole death by football idea. The man with the supposed plan.
"You can take a swing at my ego, you can make a run at my …
Everton v Liverpool | Merseyside Derby Special

Everton v Liverpool | Merseyside Derby Special

Derby day.  What more could we ask for at this point?  Liverpool haven’t lost in 2015, and Everton won their first game since mid-December this past weekend. True, it was Crystal Palace, but a resurgent Palace nonetheless (insert sarcastic smirk here). Last time out, both sides were in a poor run of form and drew 1-1. I’ll bet the house on a vastly different scoreline after 90 minutes on Saturday evening. What Do They Think? So, this is my first …

Adam Lallana Showing the Signs of Successfully Slotting into Liverpool

A Merseyside derby win would have been the perfect catalyst for Liverpool to get going on winning run, especially when the performance was better than what is has been in recent weeks. However, no one can be blamed for the uncharacteristic goal that Phil Jagielka pulled out the hat. 99 times out of 100, that would have gone high and wide, and it’s just one of those unpredictable things that can happen in these big games. Of course, conceding at …
Hodging your Bets | Roy Hodgson and the FA

Hodging your Bets | Roy Hodgson and the FA

First things first I am not a fan of the England football team, I have nothing against them or anything, it’s just that club football is everything to me. However whilst I’m not a fan of England I am even less of a fan of incompetence. You may think this is where I’m going to go to town on Roy Hodgson, and to an extent you’d be right but not entirely. Whatever you think of Roy Hodgson I think we …
Jon Flanagan: Do his performances warrant an extended run in 1st team?

Jon Flanagan: Do his performances warrant an extended run in 1st team?

Jon Flanagan has been a regular in the Liverpool side ever since starting at right wing-back in the Premier League game against Arsenal in early November. Since then, Flanagan has been swapped over to the left due to Jose Enrique being ruled out after picking up an injury. The Liverpool-born full back has been putting in some solid performances ever since and has really impressed most supporters. Critics may have their own opinions on Flanagan but I for one am …

It’s almost derby day!

Be sure to follow all of the writers on twitter by clicking the links in the subheadings @AnfieldIndex I've chosen the 3-5-2 formation specifically with Lukaku in mind. With Sakho playing centrally he should show some strength against Lukaku especially with …
Everton vs Liverpool - Match preview

Everton vs Liverpool - Match preview

One of the biggest games of any Liverpool season is just around the corner. For those that don’t know (hardly anyone, probably no one) but we are making the short trip across Stanley Park to Everton’s Goodison Park. Like any other Merseyside derby, we haven't been short of something to talk about. Probably the main point on this occasion is the selection of referee Martin Atkinson. The Yorkshireman has had no problem dishing out a card this season, already brandishing …
Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Welcome to the friendly derby. However, judging by the amount of red and yellow cards in this fixture over the years the players don’t seem to follow the maxim of ‘friendly derby’. It’s Everton against Liverpool, a game that needs no introduction. Everton go into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Man City and with a last 5 game record (LWDWL) that screams inconsistency. It’s generally thought that Everton have started the season badly yet if …
