Lime Street return to Euston Station. Gareth knew it was his own fault for not getting a coach ticket with his friends, but this one stung not only his wallet, it …

Liverpool v Arsenal Preview | Key Men & Prediction

It is time for Brendan Rodgers to learn from his mistakes at the Emirates Stadium earlier in the season as Liverpool face Arsenal at Anfield. From the start of the reverse fixture back at the start of November it seemed that the Reds were on the back foot in the 3-5-2 formation they set up in, hoping to catch the home side on the break. Unfortunately for Liverpool this break never came leaving their strike force of Luis Suárez and …
Joe ‘Welsh Xavi’ Allen: The solution to LFC’s midfield problems?

Joe ‘Welsh Xavi’ Allen: The solution to LFC’s midfield problems?

2013/2014 season, for Liverpool fans, has been a roller-coaster ride with the brilliance of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez in the goal scoring department while Liverpool’s midfield has been exposed quite a lot this season by teams ranked below us.

West Brom 1 Liverpool 1 | Review and Match Stats

West Brom took points off yet another top of the table rival as Liverpool were held to a lacklustre 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns.

The Rules of Luis Alberto: "1st RULE: You do not play Luis Alberto. 2nd RULE: You DO NOT play Luis Alberto."   Okay, so maybe that is a bit harsh on Liverpool’s number 6, but in light of recent injuries, fans have been calling out for Brendan Rodgers to hand Luis Alberto Romero his first Premier League start for the Reds.

Philippe Coutinho's Touch of Class Dominated the Derby

Philippe Coutinho's Touch of Class Dominated the Derby

There’s nothing like an intense derby match to separate the wheat from the chaff. An evening kick-off which stirred memories of those famous Anfield occasions under the lights, and a battle for bragging rights on the pitch, on the streets, in the pub, and most importantly, in the league table. The clichés rolled off the tongues of the BT Sport presenters, perched on their posh scaffolding around the ground – not for the faint hearted – and the journalists in …
