How James Milner became an unexpected Liverpool hero

How James Milner became an unexpected Liverpool hero

This week marked the five year anniversary of James Milner's arrival at Liverpool, making the switch from Manchester City on a free transfer. After weeks of speculation as to where the Yorkshireman would end up, it was former boss Brendan Rodgers who managed to persuade Milner to choose Anfield over any other potential destination. While securing Millie's services was seen as a brilliant piece of business, especially on a free deal, there was no way of knowing just how much …

The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: Attack

There have been several players in Liverpool’s recent past who have enjoyed the best football of their careers at Anfield and inscribed themselves into the club’s history with memorable performances. Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Fernando Torres — to name but three — either spent all of their careers or, in Gerrard’s case as good as, with the Reds or — with Torres as an example — enjoyed their career-best runs of form in a Liverpool shirt.

Why Alexander-Arnold is Gerrard's heir

Why Alexander-Arnold is Gerrard's heir

Countless players have been dubbed ‘the next Steven Gerrard’ over the years. Aaron Ramsey got the tag early on in his career, Dele Alli was supposed to be the reincarnation of the former Liverpool skipper but it wasn’t to be while there’s a strong belief that Birmingham City youngster Jude Bellingham is the long-term successor to the Whiston-born whirlwind’s crown. The truth is, however, that Gerrard’s heir is already playing for the Reds. Trent Alexander-Arnold might not be the most …

So with that being said, here's a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Steven Gerrard. And before we get started, I don't think it's unfair to say that Captain Fantastic as he was so often referred to wouldn't fit into any of the …

Why Julian Nagelsmann should succeed Jurgen Klopp

The last thing any Liverpool fan wants to think about right now is life after Jurgen Klopp. The day will eventually come and it is likely it’ll be in 2024. His current deal comes to an end then and reports suggest he’s not interested in extending it. Not yet anyway.  Talk has turned to who might possibly replace him. Steven Gerrard has a lot of vocal support due to his history at the club. He’s done an admirable job with …
Assertive Henderson Driving Liverpool Title Assault

Assertive Henderson Driving Liverpool Title Assault

The injury to Fabinho was adjudged by many as a harbinger of doom for Liverpool and their prospects this season. After all, the leggy Brazilian was a cornerstone for the Reds as they accumulated 97 Premier League points last season and won their sixth European Cup.

What if...Liverpool Actually Signed Konoplyanka?

Regret’s a funny thing, isn’t it? When any Liverpool fan sees the words “What if?” their thoughts could very easily be drawn back to any of the misfortunes befalling the club since the famed night in Istanbul, over fourteen years ago. That, to any reasonable Red, was the night their team sold their soul to the devil. The last fourteen years has been the payment, staggered in instalments. Of course, they endured Hicks and Gillett; that was perilous and depressing …
