Roberto Firmino - The Game Changer

Roberto Firmino - The Game Changer

Spatial awareness is defined as "the ability to be aware of oneself in space". Positional awareness is defined as "the understanding of positions of objects within an environment". For me a player can have all the ability with a ball at their feet, but to become truly elite, they must have excellent positional and spatial awareness. Roberto Firmino is a special player, one that Liverpool supporters should be grateful to have. Watch him closely and you'll see just how clever …
Liverpool beating Chelsea is the sweetest thing in football

Liverpool beating Chelsea is the sweetest thing in football

For  a Liverpool fan, there are very few feelings that can top the joy at the final whistle of a victory over our age-old rivals, Everton and Manchester United. What could be sweeter than wins over your local rivals and long-term competitive rivals? Well, the answer to that of course is beating Chelsea. The Liverpool Chelsea rivalry really blossomed into a thing of dark and twisted beauty when Messrs Benitez and Mourinho took control of their respective clubs in 2004. …
Restoring Liverpool's Identity

Restoring Liverpool's Identity

Make Us Dream Again “Why do you care so much? It’s just a game. You can’t let it affect your life like that.” They’ll never understand. We’re a tricky bunch, us. Frivolous and fickle, temperamental and volatile. We want success, as all humans do; we invest hours and hours of our lives into it, in fact, but show someone on the outside the investment and they’ll deem it totally void; incessantly pointless. It’s just a game after all, they players …
Heroes of the Past: Fernando Torres

Heroes of the Past: Fernando Torres

This is not my first article on Fernando Torres on this site. I had written one when he played at Anfield during the Steven Gerrard testimonial some time back. You can read that piece here. As you can see, I am a huge fan of Torres; a Torres fanatic would sound a bit more apt though. In fact I would put my head on the line and say Torres is my favorite Liverpool player I have ever seen playing live during …
Why Buying Goals isn't that Straightforward for Liverpool

Why Buying Goals isn't that Straightforward for Liverpool

If Liverpool had goals last season they'd have finished 4th. That's the general consensus, and the main excuse, for people when they refuse to admit everything else wasn't up to standard either. Of course goals do win games but the need for goals is lessened if you have a functioning defence but I won't get into that again due to the fact I've written about it a few times already this season. What keeps creeping up on social media is …
Broken or Wounded? Where to Next for Liverpool?

Broken or Wounded? Where to Next for Liverpool?

As grief compounds the world of most Liverpool supporters; the melancholic sense of a worthless season hangs in the rear-view mirror; only heightened by the departure of the one dependable thing Liverpool had left in Steven Gerrard. Gerrard symbolised everything Liverpool stood for; even in the toughest of adversity, even when everything looked bleak, he was the spark. He was the one to depend on. Without him, Liverpool look a shell, a discombobulated mess incapable of putting on a show …
Liverpool Need a

Liverpool Need a "Real" Marquee Signing This Summer

It seems to me that a marquee signing means different things depending on who it is you speak to. Some will argue it's already a recognised star, some will say it's a player that takes your team to the next level but the majority of people will say it's an expensive signing. The actual definition of a marquee signing is 'exceptionally popular or skilled'. Adam Lallana is labelled as our summer marquee signing due to the fact he was the …
Xabi Alonso: The Pass Master

Xabi Alonso: The Pass Master

We thought it may never happen again. But last weekend we all got to watch Xabi Alonso play at Anfield one last time, as he took to the pitch for Liverpool's all-star charity game and inevitably,  received a standing ovation. Labelled as "the passmaster", the Spaniard arrived at Liverpool young and relatively unknown, developing under Rafa Benitez and left as one of the best midfielders on the planet. Regardless of the underlying reasons of why he prematurely decided to leave, …
The Joyful Return of the Prodigal Son: Fernando Torres

The Joyful Return of the Prodigal Son: Fernando Torres

When the news came out that an All Star Charity game was to be played at Anfield in aid of multiple Liverpool based foundations, I was overjoyed that there would be legends of the game gracing Anfield. As the names of the footballers began trickling in, the interest grew. Amongst the many names was the one whom I had hoped would be in the invite list. The blonde striker, the one who gave many unforgettable moments for a lifetime and …
Once Upon A Time…There Was a Boy Named Torres

Once Upon A Time…There Was a Boy Named Torres

Think of Fernando Torres, and you think of the story of the past few years. The poor performances, the missed opportunities, failing to be the main man - the ghost of the old Fernando Torres, if you will. As much as his work for us deserves to be remembered, it's hard to look past what happened on his way out of Anfield. But isn't that always the way with strikers? Especially at Liverpool; they arrive unknown, transform into a superstar …
