Sadio Mané's goal at Fulham meant 36-year-old Rush and Dalglish achievement was equalled

Sadio Mané's opening goal in Liverpool's 2-1 win at Fulham last Sunday meant that he and Mohamed Salah had managed to achieve something last managed by club legends Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush, 36 years ago! As reported in Liverpoolfc.com, Salah and Mané became the first pair of Reds forwards to both reach at least 20 goals each in all competitions for two seasons in a row since 1983. Last season, Mané scored 20 goals as Liverpool finished fourth in …
The Team That Was - Liverpool 1989/90

The Team That Was - Liverpool 1989/90

I was lucky enough to grow up in an era where Liverpool won an array of trophies on a regular basis. If we didn’t win the league one season, you could bank on us winning it the next; such was our dominance. Sadly, these trophies dried up to largely become few and far between. In the case of the league title, it completely evaporated. As rival fans like to shove down our throats, Liverpool have never won the Premier League …
Being a Liverpool Supporter - The Anxiety is Real

Being a Liverpool Supporter - The Anxiety is Real

It's been 6 years since Liverpool last won a trophy, the League Cup under Kenny Dalglish in the 2011-12 season. And the previous trophy to that was the FA Cup in 2006. And it feels like approximately 408 years since we last won the league. So it's fair to say that Liverpool fans have been through some tough seasons in recent times. Unfortunately, this has led to some serious negativity amongst the fanbase. There is no doubt that success breeds …

Mo and Milly Shine - Key Stats from Liverpool's 2-1 win at Palace

Mo Salah was once again the hero as Liverpool came from behind to see off Crystal Palace 2-1. But what were the key stats from an incredible game at Selhurst Park? Comeback King Mo Seals Scrappy Win It’s quite rare that Liverpool come from behind to win a game this season. It’s equally rare that the Reds win a game when they’ve lost the xG this season. This was just the second time that either of those things has happened …
What makes a Liverpool legend?

What makes a Liverpool legend?

It's an interesting question and one which, more than anything else, I'd just like to discuss with you readers. If you're interested in sports other than football, over the past few weeks you may well have heard or seen some 'legendary' players, teams or performances: there was Mohamed Amir's bowling spell in the Champions Trophy Final against India, India's own Virat Kohli - an indisputable legend in the making - or maybe the New Zealand Rugby Union team, and its current …
Adam Lallana and The Wrongs of Being Right

Adam Lallana and The Wrongs of Being Right

One of the best things about following, supporting and sharing any views on football is the unerring ability to be wrong. Seriously. Being wrong is great. It’s an incredibly underrated skill. Imagine a scenario where the opposite is the case. You go to the match or a pub or to someone’s house and you call everything with 100% accuracy. ‘He’s no good.   He’s brilliant. He can’t play there. He’ll come good in exactly 48 games and that lad will be …
Liverpool Are Lacking That One True Superstar

Liverpool Are Lacking That One True Superstar

As Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspired Manchester United to their League Cup triumph on Sunday afternoon, it was impossible not to feel a twinge of jealousy. Liverpool’s most bitter rivals had been outplayed for much of the game against a slick Southampton side, but Ibrahimovic was ultimately the difference between the two sides. The legendary Swede has been an enormous success story at Old Trafford, unfortunately, with his all-conquering swagger both on and off the pitch helping transform a club in delightful …
Can Sturridge Fire Liverpool To The Champions League?

Can Sturridge Fire Liverpool To The Champions League?

When Latest News was but a tyke, Liverpool bestrode the domestic and European stage with a paradoxical blend of dignified swagger and quiet arrogance - a unique combination that often accompanies greatness, peculiar to those who know they are the best but retain a humility about that fact. From 1977 to 1984 the Reds were the finest club side on the planet and the four European Cups amassed during that period were the glittering totems of that triumphant era. Instrumental in the …
Eleven Games In for Liverpool: 2016-17 vs. 1987-88

Eleven Games In for Liverpool: 2016-17 vs. 1987-88

If you were fortunate enough to be at Anfield on Sunday, you probably left the ground with conflicting emotions. Watching the league leaders take the seventh place team apart while our rivals stutter was a joy to behold, but there’s a voice somewhere reminding us of false hope. Hubris kills. Title challenges come rare to Liverpool – 2002, 2009 and 2014 being probably the last three – but as the Chelsea and Palace games were only a couple of years …
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 …
