Liverpool Player Ratings: End of Season Edition - Part Two

Liverpool Player Ratings: End of Season Edition - Part Two

Here we go again, back for part two as I conclude my player ratings for Liverpool's season. You can find part one here, whilst Anfield Index Pro subscribers can find Adam, Tom and I guided by the lovely Kay as we join together for a Rate, Don't Hate, end of season special two-parter. Virgil van Dijk was, unsurprisingly, the high scorer in part one of these ratings, but will anyone else achieve a perfect ten as we delve into the …
Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

The legendary 4-0 win over Barcelona will be remembered for so many reasons by Liverpool supporters. The impact of Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum will rightly be at the top of the list when the game is looked back on in decades to come, following their heroic double apiece. Similarly, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s outrageous assist for Origi’s tie-clinching strike will go down in legend for its audacity and speed of thought. Alisson’s expertise in the Reds goal helped keep his side …
Liverpool vs Spurs Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool vs Spurs Preview - Potential Key Battles

Who would have thought that we’d end up here, huh? After an absolutely tumultuous twelve months for Liverpool, the Reds are back in the same position that they were this time last year, in a Champions League final. Whilst it would be unfair to suggest that Liverpool’s entire season rests on the final game of it, it is true that Liverpool’s hopes of winning their first of silverware under Jürgen Klopp this year do rest on it. So what are …
Audere est Facere: how Spurs' motto captures Liverpool's journey

Audere est Facere: how Spurs' motto captures Liverpool's journey

Over the past decade, the Liverpool country has faced so many false and painful dawns. Cultured Hodgson, the European tourist, settling on Merseyside to push us above the British tropes of non-football. The King's stabilising touch, pulling reveries from past decades to raise the dream of Cup wins upon Cup wins. Rodgers' reckless abandon in attacking the title quite literally. The reality? "If you are in the relegation zone, then you are in a relegation battle." "He didn't ask to …

No Ticket? Where to Watch In Madrid: Final TV Tips for Reds’ Eyes Only

No Ticket? Where to Watch In Madrid: Final TV Tips for Reds’ Eyes Only

Madrid is my city. I’ve lived here for four years after a combination of circumstances allowed my wife and I to choose essentially anywhere to live. There's no better place for a weekend at this time of year. Unfortunately, there is a bit of panic setting in about what Reds can expect when they descend on the Spanish capital in their thousands. I'm more than a little worried as well if I'm honest. I’ll get into those concerns and they …
European Royalty back where it belongs

European Royalty back where it belongs

Pack your bags, we’re going to Madrid. It’s the biggest stage of all in club football, and the Reds will be hoping they can go one better than last year in Kiev. A place in Liverpool folklore waits for the current squad. This year’s UEFA Champions League road to the final in Madrid has proven that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are back where they belong. Not just another English side making up the numbers in Europe, but one of the most …
Hot in the City - Facts & Figures from the Money Talks Podcast

Hot in the City - Facts & Figures from the Money Talks Podcast

A near flawless league campaign saw Liverpool become the first team to secure 97 points and not win the league. They were bested by Manchester City who, in consecutive seasons have achieved an unprecedented and colossal 198 points, enabled by their manager and squad. Understat's xPoints model has Liverpool on 83.45 points, whereas City is on 90.64. This disparity, far greater than the actual points difference is the product of all the chances faced and created, by both sides, simulated …
Why Signing Depay Rather Than Werner Makes More Sense

Why Signing Depay Rather Than Werner Makes More Sense

The transfer window has barely opened and rumours are already going into overdrive. Those rumours surrounding potential incomings at Liverpool seem to surround a number of attacking players, namely Memphis Depay of Lyon and Timo Werner of Red Bull Leipzig. There's no doubt that both would be solid additions to Liverpool's already deadly striking options, but both would add different dimensions as their styles of play are so different. And it's for this reason that, I would argue, one is …
Sergio Ramos Would Revolutionise The Reds

Sergio Ramos Would Revolutionise The Reds

Sergio Ramos Garcia. To Liverpool. Okay, before you click to close the window and burn your laptop in a barrel in the back yard, let’s remove the name and take a closer look. A 34-year-old centre-back with the ability to play right-back who has piled up four Champions League titles, four La Liga titles, a World Cup title and a myriad of other awards, cups, trophies, badges, etc. He is as skilled as anyone at the position and is a …
