Philadelphia Reds - A Personal Story

Philadelphia Reds - A Personal Story

Growing up in America, Philadelphia to be exact, is not exactly a hot bed for soccer. I started following Liverpool Football Club in 1998. I grew up playing just about every sport except soccer. One might ask how I became such a Red fanatic then? Well, let me tell you... Being from Philadelphia there are certain things we are born with: toughness, blue-collar attitude, having our own language, worst drivers in the world (yes it's in our DNA), and a …
Robbie Fowler: God Amongst Men

Robbie Fowler: God Amongst Men

According to one of its definitions on www.dictionary.com, a God is: ‘One of several deities, especially a male deity, presiding over some portion of worldly affairs.’ – A worldy affair, for example, of bringing joy the world over. A deity, I didn’t know, is defined as: ‘Divine character or nature, especially that of the Supreme Being.’  - Devine in nature, being extremely good, by way of skill and ability. Only a fool would say Robbie Fowler didn’t create joy the …
Daniel Sturridge is Priceless, Selling Him would be Foolish

Daniel Sturridge is Priceless, Selling Him would be Foolish

In Premier League history Daniel Sturridge ranks fourth when you look at goal involvement per minutes on the pitch. Yet there are a large portion of Liverpool fans that want to sell him and he's nowhere near his peak. Since the inception of the Premier League in 1992 many great strikers have graced it. The likes of Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Dennis Bergkamp, Eric Cantona, Fernando Torres, Alan Shearer and Titi Camera. Our very own no.15 is more effective than …
8 Memorable Bosman Signings for Liverpool

8 Memorable Bosman Signings for Liverpool

With confirmation of Joel Matip arriving in the summer on a free transfer earlier this week it got me thinking about previous Bosman transfers at Liverpool. It's almost instinctive to hear the words 'free transfer' and picture Joe Cole and Milan Jovanovic as a Liverpool fan but the club's history with Bosman deals isn't that bad, it's actually pretty good. It may be controversial, you may not agree, but below are the top 8 most memorable Bosman deals Liverpool have …
Henderson can earn hero status by standing up for fans

Henderson can earn hero status by standing up for fans

Given the timing of Liverpool’s capitulation against West Ham and the walkout of thousands of fans, it was inevitable that links were going to be drawn. After being 2-0 to the good and in complete control, to a walkout of thousands of fans and the subsequent omnishambles that we have come to expect of Liverpool’s defence and goalkeeper, and there was a ready-made excuse for the terrible performance. But when Liverpool’s club captain, Jordan Henderson, was fielding answers to questions concerning the …
No Value for money? The January transfer myth

No Value for money? The January transfer myth

Unicorns. Myth. Loch Ness Monster. Myth. Bigfoot. Myth. My girlfriend saying she'll only go in one shop. Myth. No value in the January transfer window. Myth. All are spoken about as though they're fact when in reality they're no more than myths. Of course you can find the odd bit of evidence to support these claims, "Sam remember that time over Christmas 2012 when I went into the first shop and bought that coat", "Remember when we signed Andy Carroll …
The Top 16 ex-Liverpool Players in the Media

The Top 16 ex-Liverpool Players in the Media

I have ranked the top 16 ex-Liverpool players in the media. In fact, I could only think of 16, so it could also be considered a list of the worst - there is quite a range of quality! Ex-players are eligible if they are - or will be - employed at some point in the media in the 2015/16 season. Therefore this excludes people like Alan Hansen and Kevin Keegan from this list. These pundits, commentators and writers have been ranked on …
For the Love of the Game!

For the Love of the Game!

As far back as I can remember I've loved football. As a child, it was playing Sunday League, Five a side, Headers and Volley's and no matter the weather, I'd always take hours of pleasure practising Keepie Uppies in the garden. I'd play anytime and anywhere, all I needed was something to kick; whether that be a bottle, a balloon or if I was lucky a football. I was always happiest when I had the opportunity to play, in truth …
