A Curious Case of Deja Vu for Liverpool FC

A Curious Case of Deja Vu for Liverpool FC

I'm sure many of you have been in a similar situation. You've been planning this moment for a while, you've ran through the situation in your head a vast amount of times and you're bordering on arrogance at how sure you are it'll be a success. You don't plan for a mishap, why would you, things are going good. You feel infallible. Then the inevitable happens and you're punished for your cocky ways leading you to have to live with …
Improving Liverpool's First Team With Minimum Expense: Part Two

Improving Liverpool's First Team With Minimum Expense: Part Two

If you missed part one of this series you can find it here where I talk about the defence and goalkeeper: Improving Liverpool's First Team With Minimum Expense Part 1. In this part I look at the defence and strikers. Victor Wanyama - Defensive Midfielder - Southampton If you follow me on Twitter or have listened to my views on any of the Anfield Index Writers' Podcast then you’ll know I am a big fan of Victor Wanyama. I’m such …

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 …
Liverpool v West Ham | Premier League Preview

Liverpool v West Ham | Premier League Preview

After an abysmal showing at Boleyn Park, the Reds face West Ham at Anfield Saturday evening. We’ve got a different story to tell this time out concerning form; back in the “wish we could forget it” month of September, Liverpool registered no Premier League wins. In fact, the only 3 points taken from that month came from the 2-1 Ludogorets win that’s scarcely memorable. The Hammers, on the other hand, were just hitting their stride that led to a Champions …
Pick Yourselves Up Liverpool.... We Go Again!

Pick Yourselves Up Liverpool.... We Go Again!

Gutted. That is the only word for it after our defeat at Stamford Bridge. Liverpool went toe to toe with Chelsea who were filled with world superstars and arguably the better side did not progress to the final at Wembley. Whilst fans will be rightfully proud of the desire and fight shown by the players, the players themselves will be left empty and heartbroken that their efforts were simply not good enough. The resurgent Simon Mignolet said after the final …
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 …
Chelsea v Liverpool | Capital One Cup Semi-Final Second Leg

Chelsea v Liverpool | Capital One Cup Semi-Final Second Leg

“Final ball, finish it off.  Final ball, finish it off.”  I found myself repeating this phrase over and over again during the last two cup clashes of the past week.  To be fair, we’ve all been saying it pretty consistently over the course of the season, but never more so than against Chelsea and Bolton. Last Tuesday, there was a sort of excitement to my voice that I hadn’t really heard since last season.  Liverpool attacked and countered hard and …
FA Cup Fourth Round Preview: Liverpool vs Bolton

FA Cup Fourth Round Preview: Liverpool vs Bolton

A fourth round cup tie against Championship side Bolton Wanderers might feel favourable at the moment. Rodgers and the Reds haven’t lost in a span of eight games, and have only recorded one loss since the blasted ruddy terrible horrendous eye-opening Crystal Palace match in November. I wouldn’t venture into the realm of “brilliance” to describe recent weeks, but you’ve got to say that Liverpool are looking better, yeah? On the other hand, Bolton have seen an upswing in their …
Fire the Lazar

Fire the Lazar

"Fire the laser" - Doctor Evil, 1999.
Not many teams are able to call on a laser to do the damage for them but Liverpool currently have a Lazar of sorts that's starting to showcase why the club forked out almost £20 million in the summer of 2014. When rumours spread of a bid for the talented Serbian, I ,for one, thought it was just that, a rumour. This was some serious talent and he was supposedly promised …
Liverpool FC - Emerging from Transition?

Liverpool FC - Emerging from Transition?

Last time I put pen to paper (metaphorically speaking), it was in some degree of anger. Christmas was still a couple of weeks away and, having had our in -built cushions handed to us by Beavis's sidekick's team of ugly stick victims, led by Phil Jones, Liverpool FC had just endured one of the worst months in living memory. Brendan Rodgers bore the brunt of my dark mood just five or six short weeks ago. The cocky, young manager from …
