Attack is the best form of defence

Too attacking or not too attacking? That is the question. Since arriving in the summer of 2009, Glen Johnson has experienced an indifferent start to this Liverpool career, with injuries and defensive errors overshadowing his attacking threat. This begs the question, who is Kenny’s first choice right-back when all of his options are fit? While it has been rare for all of Liverpool’s right-backs to fit at the same time, last season we witnessed a bold move of shifting Johnson …

Past Academy Graduates, And The Future Potential

NOTE: Before I go into detail in this article, I just want to explain a few things.

It is also worth noting I have only included players who were 18 or under when they signed for us.  Hence why Insua is included, but Plessis isn't for example.

We could also discuss potential targets, and how realistic a chance of a certain team accepting a bid, and a certain player joining.   In fact, I have read many a debate on the the forums here (Anfield Index Forum), I've had many a discussion over a beer, and hear various shouts on the terraces at match days. In these discussions, I …

In his lengthy career there is only one trophy that has eluded him; he has racked up over 650 appearances for the club often playing more than 50 games a season. He has made 137 European appearances for Liverpool (as of 24/02/2011) which is a British record.
