Did Jordon Ibe Need a Loan Move More Than Markovic?

Did Jordon Ibe Need a Loan Move More Than Markovic?

Realism and fantasy are often blurred when casting judgement over a player that plays for your club. In a quixotic world Jordon Ibe would be a starter, he'd be single handedly winning games and we as fans would be laughing at the fact Manchester City paid £49 million for an inferior player. In the realistic world though that isn't the case. Raheem Sterling seems to be at home on the Manchester City left whereas Jordon Ibe lost his starting place …
Would Winning Alone Suffice?

Would Winning Alone Suffice?

If one reads the title of this piece, it would not be too far fetched to assume that readers might think they have entered an Arsenal/Chelsea fans blog site by accident, as this is a topic which has been a bug bear for Arsenal fans during their trophy drought ridden years. The terms 'winning ugly', 'winning at all costs', 'beautiful football', 'passing the ball into the net' 'park the bus' etc. are jibes which are often involved in such discussions. …
Alberto and Markovic, do Liverpool waste talent?

Alberto and Markovic, do Liverpool waste talent?

Why have a Ferrari, a Porsche and a Lamborghini if you're just going to lock them away, rarely use them yet continuously talk about having them. "Yeah, look at the videos of how quick they can go. Imagine how good it'll be when I finally use them, right?!" Is this scenario not what happens when Liverpool sign these 'wonderkids'? We sign a player that's hyped by the masses yet genuinely seen by very few. Games like Fifa and Football Manager …
Are Liverpool in a Perpetual State of Transition?

Are Liverpool in a Perpetual State of Transition?

Evolution is inevitable. In football and in everyday life you change to adapt. So what's the difference between transition as a club and evolving? Why are some teams praised for adapting whilst others use being in transition as an excuse? Since Brendan Rodgers took the helm of Liverpool FC it feels like 'Liverpool are in transition' is one of the most overused sentences for fans and pundits alike. Many pin this on Brendan Rodgers, others like to associate the blame …
Lazar Markovic: The hipster Milan Baros

Lazar Markovic: The hipster Milan Baros

Have you all managed to stop laughing? It took me a while too but I'm serious, that really is the opinion of a select few muppets on Twitter who are eager to write off the young Serbian. I know what you're thinking. It's an easy comparison to make what with both being strikers, right? Oh, no, wait... Well at least they're both from the Czech Republic, yeah? Erm, nope... So it's a nickname purely based on them both having similar …
Rodgers and the Committee; Friends with Benefits?

Rodgers and the Committee; Friends with Benefits?

The much maligned 'duo' of Brendan Rodgers and the Liverpool transfer committee have taken much criticism over the past 12 months. To summarise it, the Liverpool fan base is pretty much divided by which side of the fence you take refuge on. Are you someone who sympathises with Brendan Rodgers having to find room in his squad for the committee signings? Alternatively, are you someone who finds it bewildering that Rodgers doesn't fully utilise all of the tools afforded to …
Liverpool FC: Cutting Our Losses

Liverpool FC: Cutting Our Losses

A financial analysis of LFC’s 2014-2015 transfers This article looks at Liverpool’s transfer activity last summer and asks whether it is financially viable to cut our losses on certain players who have flattered to deceive and how selling such players could potentially impact the club’s purchasing power for the upcoming transfer window.

Lazar Can Be Class, He Needs Games and Patience

Lazar Can Be Class, He Needs Games and Patience

The players Liverpool failed to sign-a striker to replace Suarez, a better centre-back and a good defensive midfielder-among other factors led to the club’s miserable season. However LFC’s future may well be defined by some of the young players they signed last summer. One such player is Lazar Markovic. As the club struggled and a lot of the new signings not least the “Premier League proven” players failed to make good impact, Markovic has been lumped together with Lovren and …
Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Bring Klopp to the Kop to Replace the Failing Rodgers

Many moons ago (roughly ten), last season ended in glorious failure, of sorts, for Liverpool Football Club and its fans. That failure (to get a point against Chelsea/to keep a lead against Palace) was however, very much tempered by the fact that nobody had truly expected us to ever have been in the position which would have made such a heart-wrenchingly tragic collapse possible. Yes, we were buoyed, despite not winning the title; kept afloat by the fact we'd come …
Liverpool at a Crossroads

Liverpool at a Crossroads

Defeats are always hard to stomach, some more than others. Sometimes though, it’s not just about the defeats or the manner of them; it’s an accumulation of things that change the landscape. For over 50 years, trophies have been the currency that Liverpool Football Club has dealt in and the sad fact is that 10 major trophies in the last 25 years, including just 3 in the last 10 years, is simply not good enough for England’s most successful club. …
