Adam, Downing & Henderson: New boys' Graduation Day due

[caption id="attachment_4728" align="aligncenter" width="465" caption="Time to step up in Red"][/caption] I might be witnessing a graduation on Sunday.  I hope to see new boys coming of age in a Red shirt. No, not our much criticised, 6 ft plus, work in progress, AC.  His time will come. My own theory is that he needs to come off the bench with 30 minutes to go, in a tight game, when we really need a goal. He needs an Olympiakos moment, a West …

Liverpool FC 1 QPR 0 | Quick Opta Match Stats

Finally, Liverpool FC managed to win at Anfield after four consecutive stalemates against United, City, Norwich & Swansea.

Jordan Henderson: is chance creation the way to the top?

[caption id="attachment_2895" align="alignleft" width="240" caption="Jordan Henderson"][/caption] Much has been made of the apparent inflated price Liverpool have paid for Jordan Henderson, believed to be in the region of £16m. Let us step away from the price tag for a moment, particularly as he has yet to kick a ball for his new club club, and consider the most telling statistic about Henderson’s 2010/11 season, that of his chance creation (tweets from OptaJoe here and here):
Only four players created more goalscoring chances …
