2 Sides to Brendan: Has He Done Enough?

2 Sides to Brendan: Has He Done Enough?

Over Brendan Rodgers' time at Liverpool, his contrasting results have left many to wonder whether he has a future at the helm of the Reds. So, does he? …
Memoirs of a Brendan Rodgers Disciple

Memoirs of a Brendan Rodgers Disciple

August 31st 2014 I knew it. I bloody well knew it! “Brendan Rodgers relied on Luis Suarez for the success of last season” they said. HA! Be the Lord, the Reds were as good as last year today. Liverpool went to White Hart Lane and told Tottenham “we are just better than you lot.” And we are. So much better. We might not reach the title this year, but top four is ours. Easily third, that’s for sure. Maybe second …

The Liverpool Triumvirate | Overview of Sakho, Can, Skrtel et al

With the exception of relegation battlers, you would be hard-pressed to find a defence in the league that has come under the same level of scrutiny as Liverpool. Whether it’s Neville or Carragher on a Monday night, or the ingenious Alan Shearer perceptively offering some of his innovative, ever-insightful though perpetually crap “analysis” on a Saturday night – we have heard it all since the beginning of Rodgers' tenure at the club. The undeniable yet fundamental elephant in the room …
Brendan Rodgers - Perspective

Brendan Rodgers - Perspective

Many Reds could be forgiven for believing Liverpool could actually go on to win the league last season. The cluster of Luis Suarez’s magical spectacle, Raheem Sterling’s rise to prominence and Daniel Sturridge finishing behind only the former as the league’s top goal-scorer. This season in contrast has been…well, slightly different. It’s the latter stages of January and Sam Allardyce is ahead of us. So, yes, a bit more than slightly. Also, Suarez is now firmly settled in Catalonia, a …
Liverpool FC: Who's In & Who's Out | January 2015

Liverpool FC: Who's In & Who's Out | January 2015

A certain Marco Reus was at the forefront of my arrivals for January in my original piece, written exactly a month ago. Glen Johnson was one of three talked about exits from the club. Since then, Liverpool have won three matches, whilst drawing three and losing two. Have things changed since? Yes, substantially. As the January transfer window draws ever closer, we take a quick glance at who is on Rodgers' Christmas wish-list as he looks to improve on his …

"Improving Game By Game" - Liverpool vs Sunderland Match Preview

"Improving Game by Game" As I begin to write my preview on the afternoon of the 4th of December, I reminisce back a year ago, where Norwich visited Anfield to face a vibrant and in-form Liverpool side. Four phenomenal strikes from ex-red Luis Suarez meant the Reds ran out 5-1 winners that day. Whilst we have yet to observe the red men push on and excel since the iconic number seven's departure, things have slowly began to stick together, with Liverpool winning two …
Brendan the Brave or The Cowardly Lion?

Brendan the Brave or The Cowardly Lion?

Liverpool fans finally enjoyed a weekend of football after Glen Johnson’s late winner against Stoke at Anfield. It was a much needed three points and relieved some of the pressure mounting on Brendan Rodgers. Rodgers has faced criticism from all directions including many fans who have questioned his tactics and team selections. Over the past few weeks fans have taken to social media to label Rodgers a coward and to show some balls. So what does Rodgers need to do …
Tis the season to be Jolly? | Liverpool FC

Tis the season to be Jolly? | Liverpool FC

Dear To Santa, It’s that time of year again. I don’t want a 54 convertible in light blue or any colour. I realise last season you tried your best, but obviously sorting Eartha Kitt and her ridiculous Christmas list out took it out of you. So my list is even smaller this year. It shouldn’t even be considered a list. Top 4 please. Daniel Sturridge to become a real man instead of biscuit based. Glen Johnson to never play for …

"I've got 99 Problems but White Teeth Ain't 1" | Brendan Rodgers

Okay, maybe 99 is a bit of an over-exaggeration but Brendan is in a bit of a pickle, one which, if we’re honest, is of his own making. He has just embarked on a spending spree that the likes of Jose Mourinho or Manuel Pellegrini would be proud of. You can say that we recouped a large proportion of our outlay from the Luis Suarez sale but apart from Mario Balotelli, who have we brought in that we wouldn’t have …
The Glen Johnson Masterclass

The Glen Johnson Masterclass

In 2009 Liverpool paid 17 million pounds for 25-year-old right-back Glen Johnson. Since then he has been a constant in the Liverpool backline. A constant when he hasn’t been injured that is. It was a hell of a lot of money at the time to pay for a right-back who was famously Roman Abramovich’s first acquisition and flop of his Chelsea reign. He had however, reinvigorated his career at Portsmouth and had been brought in by Benitez because in his …
