John W Henry - All Out Of Apologies

John W Henry - All Out Of Apologies

FSG (Fenway Sports Group) have had several parties ready to make very big offers in recent months but nobody was willing to reach the £4.5 billion ceiling required for John W Henry to part ways with Liverpool FC. It was Mr. Henry that made the ultimate; not unanimous, call not to entertain any offers. He chose for FSG to remain as custodians of Liverpool FC not because he feels the club's fortunes will be stronger with his group at the …
FSG: Tensions Reach an All-Time High

FSG: Tensions Reach an All-Time High

The January Transfer Window has officially slammed shut. In a painful conclusion, every one of Liverpool’s main rivals completed business before the death whereas it was clear a while ago that no-one would be heading through the doors at the AXA. Anger, frustration and bewilderment will be some of the emotions felt and expressed by many Reds and it’s understandable. As much as Liverpool need to improve on the field, it’s hard to believe that attention won’t be diverted towards …
The Leaving of Liverpool - Decision Time For FSG

The Leaving of Liverpool - Decision Time For FSG

2023 is shaping up to be one of the most pivotal years in the history of Liverpool Football Club. Decisions that need to be made will alter the course of its history for a long time to come. Key amongst them is a choice FSG need to make- stay or go. For me, it's obvious-go. Some will disagree with this, but they have done some wonderful things for Liverpool. Made inspired recruitment decisions (e.g. Klopp, Edwards). Modernised Anfield. Upgraded training …
Tony Evans: 'The Unlawful Killings' & Refusing to Allow The Banterfication of Hillsborough

Tony Evans: 'The Unlawful Killings' & Refusing to Allow The Banterfication of Hillsborough

How was 2022 for you? The answer has to be “crap” in a general sense. From a Liverpool perspective it’s been a mixed year. We forget quickly but the first five months were as uplifting as any period in my supporting life. The quest for the quad was special. To go into the last week of the campaign with the possibility of winning all four trophies was an astonishing feat. The final two games were disappointing and Paris was disheartening …
Tony Evans: The 'FSG Outers' Got What They Wanted

Tony Evans: The 'FSG Outers' Got What They Wanted

The dreams of FSG haters are about to be fulfilled. It was always just a matter of time. You know the saying, though. Be careful what you wish for. It might come true. Some people may relish the thought of petro-states or oligarchs. There are hardly any out there these days. If a Manchester City-style takeover takes place, it would present a huge moral quandary. It shouldn’t in one sense. Clubs ‘belong’ to people in different ways. Owners have the …
Tony Evans: The Henderson Haters Will Never Go Away

Tony Evans: The Henderson Haters Will Never Go Away

Jordan Henderson has a new autobiography out. It will make for interesting reading. Henderson is the most misunderstood and maligned player of the FSG era. He was bought for a position where he was rarely used. Kenny Dalglish envisioned him and Stewart Downing pinging crosses in for Andy Carroll but it never happened. Why? Luis Suarez came along and plan A got junked. From early on he was forced into unfamiliar roles. There was also the suggestion that he was …
Werner and FSG: Why It's Okay To Be Somewhere In The Middle

Werner and FSG: Why It's Okay To Be Somewhere In The Middle

It has been a while. With no football on the radar during the COVID-19 shutdown, Liverpool supporters have been reduced to reminiscing about lifting their ninteenth league title in July. With the Reds looking certain to win the Premier League at a canter this season after thirty years of hurt, the other positive developments for the club came off the pitch, in the transfer market. There has always been one player who appears to be a dead cert to sign …
Why Jürgen Klopp is Owed an Apology

Why Jürgen Klopp is Owed an Apology

The 2017/18 season has been one of the most memorable campaigns in years. Even the 2013/14 league campaign was given a run for its money as the most entertaining season in this millennium as Liverpool romped their way not just across England, but also Europe, putting teams to the sword with a free-flowing, all-smiling, goal-scoring bunch of hardworking madmen. Beautiful. The season had emotions galore: elation, devastation, ruefulness, and now nostalgia. But that nostalgia actually masks something that fans are …
FSG In, FSG Out, but what about Jurgen Klopp?

FSG In, FSG Out, but what about Jurgen Klopp?

In what has been a turbulent summer for Liverpool fans up until this point, one thing remains reasonably consistent: speculation about FSG. FSG this, FSG that. FSG in, FSG out. FSG are to blame if we don’t sign Van Dijk and Keita, FSG don’t want us to sign Van Dijk and Keita, FSG will have proven themselves, it’s time for FSG to step up. And amongst all of this, it’s not clear who FSG is actually supposed to mean. Is …
FSG: Shape Up or Ship Out

FSG: Shape Up or Ship Out

It's happened again... it's happened agai-ai-ain... Tottenham Hotspur, it's happened again!
So goes the now famous Arsenal song that was aimed at Spurs fans every season for two decades, when the day arrived each year, and it was confirmed that, yet again, their North London rivals wouldn't finish above them in the Premier League - what became known as St. Totteringham's Day. Clearly, that song was rendered irrelevant the season just gone when Spurs finished some eleven points …
