One Last Steven Gerrard Assist

One Last Steven Gerrard Assist

This coming Sunday marks potentially the most important day in Liverpool's season, certainly until the following weekend. The Reds' campaign has been littered with pivotal games, vital weeks, and must win scenarios. This is where the Anfield giants now sit within the hierarchy of all things football, and long may it continue. Nothing less than a Reds win at Anfield (against Wolves) will suffice this Sunday. To have any chance of clinching the title, three points must be achieved in …
Steven Gerrard’s Villa Impact

Steven Gerrard’s Villa Impact

Stevie Gerrard cemented his role as Aston Villa manager this past weekend when leading his new side into Anfield. The game was full of frustration, and gave mild indications of the manager he is becoming. With an ultra defensive style and formula built to slow the rampaging reds, he showed perhaps too much respect for Jürgen Klopp’s side. The narrow 1-0 home win managed to hide the the domination of Liverpool, and the negative approach by the visiting team wasn’t …
Liverpool 1 - 0 Aston Villa- The Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 0 Aston Villa- The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 5.5 Long stretches of inactivity and some hairy moments led to an up and down afternoon. If these suspect moments see a clean sheet and a probable kick start ensue (before the next run of games), then that’s just fine. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.5 The low blocks and overloading of Gerrard’s Villa frustrated, but Trents ability and strength from the right are so apparent. Good defensive work also. Andy Robertson - 8.0 It’s not a false …
What does Steven Gerrard have to do with Aston Villa to get the Liverpool job?

What does Steven Gerrard have to do with Aston Villa to get the Liverpool job?

That seems to be the question everyone has been asking since his appointment at Villa Park.  Some of the expectations being placed on him are over the top. People want him doing well with Villa in Europe, they want him pushing for the top six, doing well in domestic cups and taking scalps in the Premier League. Of course, all of that would be ideal. But I think we need to be realistic.  Villa have a good squad. They have …

The Liverpool Captaincy

The Liverpool Captaincy

As Sami Hyypiä entered the latter stages of his Liverpool career, his brilliant play and guaranteed starting position in the side became slightly less assured. His role for the team had been phenomenal, and he had helped massively in building a defence, deserving of such a club. He took over from Jamie Redknapp as Liverpool captain (as injuries and form sidelined Redknapp), and led the team with brilliant professionalism throughout. As the team entered the final stages of Gerard Houllier’s …

Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Jordan Henderson is an extremely versatile player, as we've seen throughout the entirety of his Liverpool career. Whether it's been as the midfield anchor, as an energetic, box to box tornado of engine room intensity or -- as we saw in his first season with the Reds, under Kenny Dalglish -- as a right midfielder in midfield four, the captain has been a consistent performer for most of the time since his summer 2011 move from Sunderland. Playing as the …
Thiago Could Have Lessons For Liverpool's Jones

Thiago Could Have Lessons For Liverpool's Jones

For an incalculable number of reasons, the signing of Thiago Alcantara is a huge boost for Liverpool. On the pitch, off the pitch, for dressing room morale and from a marketability viewpoint, the 29-year-old Spaniard could -- and should -- prove an extremely valuable acquisition for the Reds. But perhaps the biggest impact that the former FC Bayern midfield linchpin could have is on the young players in the English Champions' squad, especially the likes of Curtis Jones. Steven Gerrard, …

Exciting Times To Be A Red - Drink It In

The date is Tuesday, 1st May, 1990. Liverpool have beaten Arthur Cox's Derby County 1-0 at Anfield. Having already wrapped up the league title a week prior following a 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers, the Anfield faithful were preparing to witness Steve McMahon lift the trophy up in the air - for the nineteenth time. Such was the bar that Kenny Dalglish's relentless Reds set throughout their heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, winning First Division Championships were no …
