Tony Evans: Time For The Mentality Monsters to Step Up

Tony Evans: Time For The Mentality Monsters to Step Up

This is where all the cliches ring true. It’s now or never. No hiding place. Take responsibility. No excuses. At the Etihad tomorrow everybody needs to show up. If anything is to come from this disappointment of a season, Liverpool need to take something from Manchester City. And let’s be honest, one point will probably not be enough. Many of the players have been on international duty but Jurgen Klopp has had two weeks to think about this. He’s got …
Liverpool’s Greatest Premier League Eleven

Liverpool’s Greatest Premier League Eleven

After the weekend (which saw several Liverpool legends assemble), I had a little thought about which one I could possibly write about. One of my colleagues has written about the next steps of Steven Gerrard (available this week on Anfield Index), whereas I have chosen to compile what I believe to be the best Liverpool eleven from the Premier League era. This is a debate that can be argued until fans are red in the face, yet for me, it’s …
Scouting Report: James Ward-Prowse

Scouting Report: James Ward-Prowse

What do Gini Wijnaldum, Andy Robertson and Xherdan Shaqiri all have in common? They’re all Jurgen Klopp signings who’ve done well and crucially, been bought from clubs that were relegated. Value is value wherever you find it though and if the rumours are to be believed then Liverpool may potentially be looking to repeat the trick again. Naturally it’s linked to the obvious areas that the clubs has issues in: midfield and the home-grown quota. Which list we’re looking at …
Stevie G: What Next For The Living Legend?

Stevie G: What Next For The Living Legend?

Steven George Gerrard MBE (noun): to evoke warm and incredible memories of a time when a demi-god captained your football team and no matter who was alongside him, you believed anything was possible. Also see: big match winning performances and generational talents. A genuine Reds legend, he showed at the LFC Foundation game against Celtic that he’s still got it and you wonder with a few more training sessions and less beers if he could still do the job for …
Manchester City v Liverpool - The PL Preview

Manchester City v Liverpool - The PL Preview

This used to be a game I would relish, in the knowledge that Liverpool would take the fight to their most recent domestic rivals. Though the silverware count is very much in favour of Pep Guardiola and City, so is the amount of Premier League charges that have come their way. If not for the clear and obvious overspending (of the reigning English champions), the Reds would have a far greater haul for themselves. This is something that will be …
April: All or Nothing

April: All or Nothing

Come the 1st August, Liverpool will be desperately hoping they’re not looking like fools as they get set to face Manchester City after the international break. With the business end of the season now read to swing into gear, there can’t be anymore false dawns if what has been a shitshow of a season on every level is to yield anything for the Reds. With a tough run of fixtures, injury concerns for multiple players and a chastening beginning, it …
Levi Colwill & The Left Sided Addition

Levi Colwill & The Left Sided Addition

The evolution of systems and formations come about every few years. Some coaches will persevere with their trusted ideologies, whereas others will fall on their sword, in a desperate bid to stand their ground. During this disastrously poor season for Liverpool FC, transition is the word that has been uttered nearly as much as Jude, with both keenly sought this coming summer. With the flip of a coin likely to decide the reds Champions League qualification (for next season), it …
Scouting Report: Evan Ndicka

Scouting Report: Evan Ndicka

Jurgen Klopp is known to be a fan of working with a smaller squad, so players that can offer versatility in multiple positions have always been popular with him. FSG love value, so if there’s no transfer fee then even better for them. In this scouting report, we look at a player that can fulfil a lot of the defensive requirements that Liverpool currently have whilst still leaving funds available to invest in other areas. Shopping in the bargain basement …
Should Jordan Henderson Retire from International Football?

Should Jordan Henderson Retire from International Football?

In terms of modern-day football and essentially when representing an elite footballing club, it’s important to know when to manage the rigours of top tier competition. The likes of Jamie Carragher, Paul Scholes, and James Milner, all brought their international tenures to an early halt in order to add longevity to their domestic careers. There are of course certain individuals who are determined to hold onto both pursuits, with some of the world’s greatest ever players doing so to good …
Renewing James Milner Is a Step Backwards 

Renewing James Milner Is a Step Backwards 

Another year goes by, which brings us to the moment where James Milner is primed to be given yet another 1 year’s contract extension.   I’m a fan of James Milner, as I believe he has a superb attitude for football, can offer vast experience (to younger players) and can be a senior presence on the training ground. For the last two years, I have wanted Adrián to have his own contract renewed, as it offered a great level training …
