An Ulsterman’s View of our Ulsterman Brendan Rodgers

An Ulsterman’s View of our Ulsterman Brendan Rodgers

As Brendan Rodgers approaches 3 years at the helm of Liverpool Football Club, he has given fans a rollercoaster of a ride. From “nearly” winning the league last season, to the depths of the August to December period this season. Then the hope of a decent run crashed with back to back defeats to top 4 challengers who we needed to take something from. So what will the future hold for my fellow countryman and will he still be at …

Cup-Tied or Hamstrung? | Liverpool FC

The Magic of the (FA) Cup. We all love a good cup tie, don't we? Every fan, surely, must want to see their team go on a great cup run, musn't they? I mean, winning breeds winning; it's a great way to gather momentum; the players just want to get out there and play; When you're winning you want to win again, and if you're losing, you just want to go out there and put things right. After all, that's …
Brendan Rodgers: On Thin Ice

Brendan Rodgers: On Thin Ice

The weekend saw Liverpool's run of abject form continue, as they slumped to a fourth consecutive defeat, further extending their winless run in the Premier League. Not since an injury time own goal spared the Reds' blushes at Loftus Road on 19th October, have Liverpool recorded three points. In fact, a last gasp home win over Swansea, in the Capital One Cup, continues to be the Anfield side's only victory in the last seven - a run which has witnessed …
Rodgers vs The Committee - Is It Only A Matter Of Time?

Rodgers vs The Committee - Is It Only A Matter Of Time?

We’re all experts when it comes to transfers aren’t we? Whether you are an armchair scout who watches hours of football or a more casual fan who relies on YouTube clips, the chances are you have an opinion on who you think the club should buy. As a result, you simply can’t understand why your club isn’t snapping up the players who you know would make all the difference to the team. Now there’s a school of thought that the …
Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool: A Year of Learning

Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool: A Year of Learning

It is at times required to look back to find focus on what lies ahead. As has been recited in articles, podcasts, and books alike, Liverpool's remarkable achievements last season were unfathomable, especially when one considers the obstacles and interrogations of Rodgers' ability which were  met en route. Unfortunately, many believe 'Brenton Fraudgers' will be found out next year, with a number of fans and pundits citing a lack of preparation time this season due to European competition as one of …
Liverpool's Owners Hold All The Cards Over Suarez

Liverpool's Owners Hold All The Cards Over Suarez

And so it happened. Sanchez said no. As ever in transfer windows, it’s not over until Sky Sources tell you. But it’s gone. As hard a pill as that is to swallow, Liverpool do seemed to have moved on. So what now? Where do Liverpool turn next? Well, maybe that’s the wrong question. At this moment, as of 6pm on Tuesday the 8th of July to be precise, Suarez still plays for Liverpool. Do I expect him to be around at …
Now's Not the Time to Worry About Suarez

Now's Not the Time to Worry About Suarez

Luis Suarez. Husband. Father. Football genius. It was always going to be one of those windows. There was always going to be speculation. When you have a player a good as Luis, gossip never sleeps. The reality is, nobody, barring a close inner circle truly knows the details. But in transfer windows, reality, quite literally, goes out of the window (excuse the pun). All rumour, conjecture, supposed knowledge; it all has to be taken with a pinch of salt. The …
Is the Smart Money on Liverpool?

Is the Smart Money on Liverpool?

Four, long years. Four years of Champions League football wilderness, starting with the capitulation of the Rafa regime, continuing with Hodgeball and the return of the King, and most recently, an investment in what is fast becoming a special managerial talent in Brendan Rodgers. I’m circumventing a key issue in those four years, of course – the change in ownership.  The shift from Hicks & Gillett to FSG is somewhat embryonic – as if the old Liverpool is suddenly poised …

Another Way of Winning | FSG & Liverpool FC

‘The measure of intelligence is the ability to change’
Those words by Albert Einstein are oft quoted to soften the blow of being proved wrong or having to change your mind; nobody likes the thought of either, but at times it’s necessary. Adapting, changing your views and broadening your horizons are courageous actions as one steps out of their comfort zone, you try and adapt and grow whilst reaching for the horizon. Since FSG arrived on Merseyside, many …
Kenny Dalglish Sacked -

Kenny Dalglish Sacked - "The Liverpool Way" is Dead

It was headline news on Sky Sports, BBC and in all the newspapers. Everyone knew what happened. Kenny Dalglish didn’t resign as manager, nor did he come to the end of his contract. He was sacked. By Liverpool Football Club. Kenny Dalglish was sacked by Liverpool Football Club. I felt sick reading it, hearing it and thinking about it. Liverpool’s league performance in the 2011/12 season wasn't good enough. Too few goals were scored, too many games were lost. Arguably even worse, there …
