Defensive Midfielders: Potential Targets Comparison to Liverpool’s Lucas?

Defensive Midfielders: Potential Targets Comparison to Liverpool’s Lucas?

With Liverpool making such positive headway during the first third of the Premier League season, there have been grumblings and moans at any supporters who dare to question the team or the tactics. It is true that, with recent seasons proving so desperate and barren, we should enjoy this season as the Reds look more competitive than ever - Rodgers’ squad currently sit second in the league. However, somewhere many fans believe Liverpool have lacked this season is the central …
Why December is important to Liverpool's season

Why December is important to Liverpool's season

Next month is by far the most important month of Liverpool's 2013/14 campaign on a whole. December is the month when players get tired from the past few months of football and see themselves pushed to the limit with a rush to get all of our remaining 7 games played and out the way before we can make any signings in January and freshen the squad up, and here is just why December is crucial to Liverpool's season. The first …
Liverpool's left back issue: Is he the Taylor-Made solution?

Liverpool's left back issue: Is he the Taylor-Made solution?

Anyone who has watched Liverpool for the past two seasons would agree that Liverpool need a new first choice left back. In fact, if you go back the last 10 years you could put forward an argument that Liverpool’s last top class left back was actually a right back, that player would be Alvaro Arbeloa. If you pushed me even more I would say that him and Glen Johnson are the best left backs Liverpool have had since the day’s …

Hull Vs Liverpool Betting Preview | Includes betting tips for weekend

After a breath-taking derby last week, Liverpool travel to Hull this Sunday lunchtime. The last time the two sides met at the KC stadium, the two managers were Iain Dowie and Rafa Benitez and Liverpool's starting XI included the likes of Mascherano, Kyriakos, El Zhar and Aquilani. The hosts have won just one of their last games in the league, which is why, despite the visitors not winning any of their previous 3 away games, Liverpool are odds on at 8/13. As …

Hull City Vs Liverpool | A Game We Should Be Winning

‘A game we've already won on paper’
This is a platitude that will be on the lips of many Liverpool supporters if next weekend’s trip to Hull comes up in conversation around the water cooler. Even the most pessimistic of fans would have to respond with ‘And why not?’ We've lost only two games in the league this season against a couple of the more in-form teams and, promisingly, we haven’t managed to drop points in frustrating draws like last …

Which Partnership is Better? Suárez & Sturridge vs Rooney & RVP

Which Partnership is Better? Suárez & Sturridge vs Rooney & RVP

Disclaimer: The stats used were valid as late as 22nd November 2013 due to this article being written before this weekend's games.  At the top level of football the lone striker is becoming the regular sight, with strike partnerships looking to be a thing of the past. Managers now identify the importance of controlling the middle of the park when it comes to winning games, and since weakening the defence is asking for trouble, the man who must make way …

Why isn’t Rodgers the Messiah yet?

Why isn’t Rodgers the Messiah yet?

According to Wikipedia.org, the messiah complex (also known as the Christ complex or saviour complex) is a state of mind in which an individual holds the belief that they are, or are destined to become, a saviour. Rodgers certainly doesn’t outwardly exhibit this, and conversely, the faithful of Liverpool Football Club aren’t holding him in this regard. Well, not yet, at least. In the process of creating his dynasty, Bill Shankly created an aura for his predecessors to forcefully inherit. …
How do you solve a problem like Jordan Henderson?

How do you solve a problem like Jordan Henderson?

On Liverpool blogs across the web many paragraphs have been devoted to discussing the player that Jordan Henderson has blossomed into this season but regardless of how much everyone agrees on his improvement, his best position for the team is still a matter that needs to be discussed. This season he’s played as a shuttling wide midfielder, a right attacking midfielder and in the centre of the park but it remains to be seen where he’s most effective. Henderson’s most …
