Five Players LFC Would Happily Welcome Back Now

Five Players LFC Would Happily Welcome Back Now

Alan Kennedy  The left-back scored two European Cup winning goals - need I say more? It was obvious this shortlist would contain a left-back and given there's been very few who have made the position their own in the Premier League era, it's no surprise I went for a solid performer of the past. John Arne Riise is perhaps the best left-back Liverpool have had since the turn of the Millennium and was a close contender but Kennedy was part …

Bottlers Inc. - The Liverpool Backbone

The Famous “Spine” Every successful team needs one.   In the ‘80s Liverpool had Grobbelaar, Hansen, Whelan and Rush.  United’s dominance of the ‘90s was largely down to their leaders through the middle - Schmeichel, Bruce, Keane and Cantona.   Wenger’s Invincibles had Lehmann, Campbell, Viera and Henry and Chelsea's successes during the last 12 years or so had the solid foundation of Cech, Terry, Lampard and Drogba.   The common traits of most, or all, of these players are …
The Top 16 ex-Liverpool Players in the Media

The Top 16 ex-Liverpool Players in the Media

I have ranked the top 16 ex-Liverpool players in the media. In fact, I could only think of 16, so it could also be considered a list of the worst - there is quite a range of quality! Ex-players are eligible if they are - or will be - employed at some point in the media in the 2015/16 season. Therefore this excludes people like Alan Hansen and Kevin Keegan from this list. These pundits, commentators and writers have been ranked on …
Where has Liverpool's fight gone?

Where has Liverpool's fight gone?

May, 2005, 49 minutes past 11 was the first time in my life I cried at a game of football on television. Being 7 years old, it was the first time I was of conscious mind when my beloved Liverpool got their hands on some silverware, and better yet, the 5th European Cup. Doesn’t get much better for your first time! More to my point, I also remember how cold I was in my grandmother’s sitting room, sipping on a …

Didi Hamann – The German Rock

Didi Hamann – The German Rock

What a player. Didi Hamann was a world-class defensive midfielder. Imagine if we could select him for Liverpool now? He’d slot straight into Lucas’ position and provide that all-important protection for the back three – in turn, providing all the ammunition to go forward in attack. The current Liverpool side have all the firepower to attack with speed, creativity and freedom and yet there’s something lacking; a spark, a confidence, a Didi Hamann… Lucas has had a good season. Liverpool doesn’t …
Steven Gerrard | 16 Years of Captain Fantastic

Steven Gerrard | 16 Years of Captain Fantastic

Last week marked the 16th anniversary of Steven Gerrard’s debut in a Liverpool shirt. At the tender age of 18 Gerrard made his bow as a last minute substitute against Blackburn Rovers. Since that day he has played over 687 games for his boyhood club, scoring 176 goals. In 2013 he struck his 100th Premier League goal against Newcastle United and is currently Liverpool’s sixth all-time top goal scorer above the illustrious Kenny Dalglish. Only the Premier League title is …
