The Sterling sale, is this the (new) Liverpool way?

The Sterling sale, is this the (new) Liverpool way?

Raheem Sterling split the opinion of an already divided fan base. The divide started at the beginning of the 2014/2015 season. The belief we had in 2013/2014 was taken apart, piece by piece, as the stars of that team left, one by one, and the loss of identity happened at an alarming rate. Brendan Rodgers' tricky Reds seemed to go missing in the 2014/2015 season. Countless personnel changes in various formations and in the end Liverpool's identity was like a …
Sean O'Driscoll - Similar but Different

Sean O'Driscoll - Similar but Different

It's finally here. Pre-season officially began on July 6th. The 'big' news many ITK's predicted never actually arrived. Despite Callum 'credential' Wright saying a Dubai based company would buy the club they inevitably didn't. The manager wasn't replaced by a certain German. It was kind of nice how straightforward it was in the end after a summer of conspiracy theories. The first team coaching staff got two new additions, the playing staff has been aided by the additions of James …
A GAME OF THRONES - Who will sit beside the Anfield Throne?

A GAME OF THRONES - Who will sit beside the Anfield Throne?

With Brendan Rodgers backed by FSG and secure as Liverpool Manager who is going to accompany him and who will wave goodbye. As we know there has already been two cut throat departures of backroom staff, Colin Pascoe and Mike Marsh fell victim to last season’s shortcomings. Brendan’s court is going to be a lot different come that exciting first BPL fixture, away at the Potteries. The appointment of unproven Sean O’Driscoll has caused some concern amongst fans but with …
O'Driscoll - will it work?

O'Driscoll - will it work?

Fume. There is lots of it going round at the moment. The capture of Roberto Firmino reunited the fanbase and gave us all something to shout about and look forward to. Since the announcement, the ongoing pursuit of Christian Benteke has re-opened the cracks amongst fans which then firmly split open when it was announced that Sean O’Driscoll is set to be appointed the new assistant manager at Liverpool Football Club. Since the news broke, we have seen articles, tweets …
Despite the signings | Are Liverpool in disarray?

Despite the signings | Are Liverpool in disarray?

Disarray: a state of disorganisation or untidiness. An apt word to describe the current state of affairs at Liverpool Football Club at this moment. A disastrous season has thrown the club into a state of limbo and no one can quite predict what the owners next move will be. Obviously, we are not privy to inside information but as an outsider looking in, the uncertainty and the silence raise a myriad of questions where we desperately crave answers. Despite agreeing …
You Decide: The Trial of Raheem Sterling

You Decide: The Trial of Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling, just the mere mentioning of his name evokes a wide range of emotions from football fans all over the world, especially Liverpool fans. He's a player who now divides opinions on his talent, but seemingly unites opinion on how he's handled himself over the past six months. It's a shame just how polarising he has become amongst Liverpool fans and with some much speculation about his future, we would like to put forward the case for keeping him …
Time For a Transfer Renaissance?

Time For a Transfer Renaissance?

Recently a question came about in a group conversation as to whether players should be put through a more rigorous screening process prior to being signed on permanently or even for loans. Suggestions that came up as part of the ensuing discussion included a trial period where players can get used to training regimes and the atmosphere of the squad. As well as this a more thorough interview and medical procedure might be something worth implementing in order to better …
Liverpool, FSG, Brendan Rodgers and Radiohead 

Liverpool, FSG, Brendan Rodgers and Radiohead 

In the last week when it was leaked to the media that Rodgers was staying at LFC, I was going through my old CD (yes that old!!) collection when I came across the Radiohead album “The Bends”. I decided to re listen and the words in the title track seemed very apt for the current situation at LFC. For the younger viewers or non-fans it starts like this…. Where do we go from here?? The words are coming out all …
FSG and Brendan Rodgers: Back to the drawing board!

FSG and Brendan Rodgers: Back to the drawing board!

The news emerging in the last 12 hours (at the time of writing) saw Brendan Rodgers being given the vote of confidence by the people who matter, Fenway Sports Group. This ideally puts to rest the anxiety of 'will he stay/will he not' debate amongst the fan base and whether in agreement or not, it is best for the club that the decision has been made swiftly and there is clarity of thought going forward. Or is there...? There have …
Brendan Rodgers: Win (back) the Crowd

Brendan Rodgers: Win (back) the Crowd

I’m a big fan of applying movie quotes to aspects of everyday life. I have a Mean Girls reference for almost any situation. This seemed like as good a time as any to quote the 2000 classic Gladiator. “Win the crowd and you will win your freedom”. With Brendan Rodgers set to remain Liverpool manager for the foreseeable future, following an end-of-season post-mortem with Liverpool’s ownership, the Northern Irishman faces a real test to win back the crowd; to convince …
