Liverpool's Attack: From Down Right Disaster To Destructive In Just Three Years

Liverpool's Attack: From Down Right Disaster To Destructive In Just Three Years

Cast your minds back to the gloomy 2014/15 season in which Liverpool parted ways with the talismanic figure of Luis Suarez, replacing him with Rickie Lambert and the ever egotistical Mario Balotelli. From goals galore in 2013/14 to a troublesome goal drought the following season, Brendan Rodgers' side went from a team that could do no wrong to one devoid of attacking verve. The £16million move for Balotelli was a gamble that never paid off, with the forward scoring his …
Liverpool FC - If You Build It, They Will Stay

Liverpool FC - If You Build It, They Will Stay

Nothing great ever happens in team sports without the supporting cast playing some role on many different levels. Being in the background is usually no longer enough. The supporting cast now needs to contribute more than just hang around waiting to be dragged to titles. Countless times in recent history we have seen the Most Valuable Player in a season miss out on the grand prize despite their stellar performances. In a world were loyalty is now the exception rather …
Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Immense Salah-Firmino Partnership Continues To Grow At Liverpool

Great Liverpool attacking pairings throughout history roll off the tongue. Ian St John and Roger Hunt excelled in the 1960s, John Toshack and Kevin Keegan were the archetypal ‘Little N Large’ combo the following decade and Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush were perhaps the Reds’ greatest duo-in-tandem. Jumping into the Premier League era, Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore wreaked havoc for a short time, before Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres came so close to inspiring Liverpool to glory in 2008/09. …
The Latest In A Long Line Of Deadly Duo’s: Firmino and Salah

The Latest In A Long Line Of Deadly Duo’s: Firmino and Salah

Liverpool have long been blessed with tremendous attacking partnerships; there was Emile Heskey and Michael Owen, the brilliance of Torres and Gerrard, the magic of SAS and this season’s elusive ‘Fab Four’. Now, following the departure of Philippe Coutinho last month, a new partnership beckons for The Reds. Joining from Atletico Madrid, Fernando Torres formed one of the most deadly partnerships in the Premier League alongside Steven Gerrard, netting 54 times between them by the close of the 2007/08 season …
The Unfair Alberto Moreno Witch-Hunt Returns

The Unfair Alberto Moreno Witch-Hunt Returns

First things first: I have been one of Alberto Moreno’s biggest critics over the last few years. The horrendous performance in the Europa League final essentially cost Liverpool a trophy - he was not the sole reason for the defeat, but the key reason for it - and too many lapses in concentration and a perceived lack of focus have irritated the life out of me. That footage of him flipping a bottle on the sidelines last season, instead of …
Kenny Dalglish: The Greatest

Kenny Dalglish: The Greatest

"It was a privilege to even go there and play. It was a privilege to win. The way I looked at it, the club were doing me a favour. Not the other way round." He’ll always be the greatest. No one really comes close. Liverpool have been spoilt when it comes to heroes. Players like Yeats, St John, Hunt, Hughes, Kennedy, Keegan, Toshack, Rush, Souness, Barnes and Gerrard would have statues built for them had they played for anyone else, …
Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Serial Captain & Audi Cup Runner Up: What is a Jordan Henderson?

Jordan Henderson. League Cup Winner 2012, Europa League Runner Up 2016, Audi Cup Runner Up 2017 & Serial Young Player of the Year Award Winner. His honours list reads like a small pack of Revels. Yet somewhat amazingly, despite continuing to divide opinion and never really cementing his position as a winner, Henderson is a man who continues to defy critics and has somehow managed to work himself into the role of Captain for both club and country. For Liverpool, …
The Difficulties in Being Gerrard's Successor

The Difficulties in Being Gerrard's Successor

It hasn't been the greatest two weeks in the history of the club to say the least, no wins in four and an early exit in the Carabao Cup has fans clamouring to find reasons for our run of poor form. The defence has taken the brunt of it, individual and tactical mistakes leading to 10 goals conceded in 4 games and fingers being pointed to individual players as each game goes by; Lovren at Sevilla, Klavan at Burnley and …
Trent Alexander-Arnold: A learning curve

Trent Alexander-Arnold: A learning curve

One of the feel good stories surrounding Liverpool FC recently has been the rise of young scouser Trent Alexander-Arnold. For years there was a constant stream of local lads making it into the first team and going on to become cult heroes or world class players, the academy down the years has produced the likes of Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and most notably Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard. Since the debut of our former captain; the well …
Trent Alexander-Arnold - Local Hero

Trent Alexander-Arnold - Local Hero

I know it shouldn’t be important, but it is. I know it should just be about the team, but this isn’t. I know that it shouldn’t matter who scores for Liverpool, but on this occasion it means the world. When Trent Alexander-Arnold wheeled away in celebration in Germany this week, and tried gamely to calm his mind after his magnificent achievement, he knew that any attempt at casualness and insouciance would be an act of folly. He had just done …
