Liverpool's Defensive Errors - Mis-shapes, Mistakes, Misfits

Liverpool's Defensive Errors - Mis-shapes, Mistakes, Misfits

On looking at the league table, it would be easy to blame Liverpool’s failure to win the title on their defence. It would be easy to do, partly because it’s true. However, there are many things to take into account when analysing why a team concedes the goals they do. What follows is a look at Liverpool’s defensive errors in comparison with other teams, and a brief look at whether the mistakes are systemic or the fault of individuals. Team …
Another False Dawn for Liverpool FC? Not This Time!

Another False Dawn for Liverpool FC? Not This Time!

Those tinges of heartbreak from seeing Manchester City winning the league, and not the Reds, were instantaneously replaced by the euphoria of actually being in a title race until the very last day of the season. Universally, nobody would dare say this was a failure of a season in anyway. Not even the judgmental mainstream media. History will ultimately judge Rodgers’ team, built in his image of flair, confidence, guile, steel, and of vulnerability, that it will grow on to …

Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee: The Criteria

Brendan Rodgers and The Transfer Committee: The Criteria

The dust has yet to settle on the wild and wondrous campaign of 2013/14, yet the transfer rumour mill is in full swing; with Liverpool its traditional epicentre. However, among the traditional nonsensical reports of Ricardo Quaresma finally sealing his move to Liverpool and Simao finally receiving the call from Senor Rafa to board that plane, Kopites have taken to social media sites, forums and pubs to discuss just who is needed at Anfield next season; coupled with those to …
Match Report: Shamrock Rovers 0 Liverpool 4

Match Report: Shamrock Rovers 0 Liverpool 4

It was a dreary and grey night in Dublin's Aviva Stadium which welcomed the clash between Glasgow Celtic lookalike Shamrock Rovers, and the Premier League runner up, Liverpool FC. Liverpool fielded a relatively weakened side as all the first team players who have been selected for their respective countries to take part in this summer's FIFA World Cup were left on Merseyside. The starting eleven featured three loanees who came straight into Brendan Rodgers' side including Fabio Borini, Jordon Ibe …

Thank You Brendan Rodgers

Dear Brendan Rodgers, I hope this letter reaches you in good spirits even if things haven't panned out quite how we all would've wanted on the final Sunday of the season. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for all your efforts, not just this season, but both campaigns you have been in charge. As a Welshman who was lucky enough to see you rebuild your career at Swansea, I was extremely happy to see …

Liverpool FC: Our Hopes and Expectations, Leaked Goals and Revelations

This Sunday at Anfield, a 2013/14 Premier League winners trophy will be present along with some medals, just in case. All we need to accompany this agonising reminder of how close we've come this season is Jim Bowen to tell us what we could have won, before revealing said silverware, Bullseye style. There's still a slither of hope though. The final game against Newcastle will be a mixture of emotions, as this current Liverpool side have taken us on a …

A Henderson-sized gap: How we've fared without him | Stats

A soul-destroying week has brought our title hopes down from cloud nine to only a slight chance of glory. The two results against Chelsea and Crystal Palace have gifted Manchester City an unbelievable chance of regaining the Premier League title - and even though we'll be cheering on Villa and West Ham like they're our own, it's going to need a miracle to get the trophy back to Anfield. Then again, we know all about them don't we? You could …
