Job Done - Observations from Liverpool's 3-0 win against Exeter

Job Done - Observations from Liverpool's 3-0 win against Exeter

It could have been tricky. It wasn't. It could have been embarrassing. It wasn't. Liverpool got the job done against Exeter to set up a tie with West Ham at Anfield in the next round of the FA Cup. After Sunday's defeat to United, it was important for the Reds to register a win in front of the home fans and the young side Klopp put out, duly delivered. There were plenty of positives to be taken away from the …
Klopp's Kids

Klopp's Kids

Every time Liverpool step on to the pitch I always try and learn something. For instance some of the things I learned under Brendan Rodgers were, I learned that he didn't have a clue about managing a team who didn't have a twenty goal a season striker playing for him or what a defence was. I learned that you need more than character to win matches and that he had no clue when it came to buying, selling and loaning …
How Seriously Should Liverpool FC take the Cup Competitions?

How Seriously Should Liverpool FC take the Cup Competitions?

Before I answer the question of how seriously Liverpool Football Club should take the cup competitions, I think it is important to first do something that Liverpool fans are famous for: talk about our history; it is vital to understand the philosophies that this great club was built on. Going back to, in my opinion, the most important day in this great clubs history - 1st December 1959 when Liverpool was a Second Division Team, which nowadays is known as …
Brendan Rodgers' xFactor Moment

Brendan Rodgers' xFactor Moment

"You can tell he wants the job though" Oh really? You're telling me Brendan Rodgers wants one of the biggest jobs in world football? Shit, well if he wants it I guess he should be the manager, yeah... That was one of the reasons fans used when the news broke that Brendan Rodgers had survived the end of season review. How in-depth this review was we'll never know but that's for another day. Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool was going to be …
Philippe Coutinho: A shining light in a frustrating season

Philippe Coutinho: A shining light in a frustrating season

Philippe Coutinho was recently named in the PFA team of the year; but in expected style, not all agreed. It was questioned by some as to whether he deserved to make the line-up, but why shouldn't he? In what has been such a frustrating and disappointing season for Liverpool, the Reds didn't make that stepping stone and build on the unbelievable progress that was made last year. With Suarez and Sturridge missing, however, we knew it would be difficult. But …
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. …
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 …

Bolton v Liverpool | FA Cup Fourth Round Replay

Bolton v Liverpool | FA Cup Fourth Round Replay

After a good win and a fantastic Sturridge rebirth at Anfield, we travel to Macron Stadium to take on Bolton.  At stake: advancing to the fifth round and a tie at Selhurst Park.  The primary question is: does anyone in the side really care?  For the sake of Gerrard’s final year at Liverpool, I’d have to say so. Here’s The Deal About the FA Cup Our form has been much improved lately.  Coutinho and Sterling have really blossomed.  Henderson is …
