Winning Mentality Comes To The Fore At Fulham

Winning Mentality Comes To The Fore At Fulham

Is it possible to love and hate a football team at the same time? It was easy to feel that way on Sunday, as Liverpool did their best to throw away valuable points at Fulham, in what would have been their most disappointing result of the season. Confidence was flowing as the Reds arrived in west London, with the 3-1 win at Bayern Munich showcasing their brilliance under Jurgen Klopp. A trip to a 19th-place struggling outfit in the spring …
Liverpool vs Porto: Champions League Quarter Final Is No Formality

Liverpool vs Porto: Champions League Quarter Final Is No Formality

After emphatically dumping Nivo Kovac's Bayern Munich out of the Champions League this week, Liverpool were handed what on paper seems to be a preferable quarter-final after being drawn against Porto. The 1-3 scoreline at the Allianz Arena along with a composed and assured performance in Bavaria has led many to believe that Liverpool are in with a serious chance of replicating last year's European form and making it all the way to the final for a second consecutive season …

HAPPY PADDY’S DAY TROOPS. UP THE REDS. Alisson (6): I don’t know. Who do you blame? Liverpool won though soooo... arsed? Trent Arnold (6): His crossing is either the best in the league or the worst in the league and I’m completely on board with that until he’s 25. Can’t be dropped for the remaining league games.  Joel Matip (6): He’s doing an absolute 7/10 job and the moment and that’s reflected by getting at least 6/10 every week. Wish …
Triumph of the Understudies at Liverpool

Triumph of the Understudies at Liverpool

It was only a few days ago that Liverpool fans bore witness to another one of Jürgen Klopp’s most repeated sentiments – “I don’t need to spend anything, I’ve got all that I need.”
“I don’t want to talk exactly what we will do, but I don't think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money or whatever. "The best way to do it is bring together a group of players, try …

Fear in the Presence of Success

Fear in the Presence of Success

Like it or not, fear, in many forms, has been riddled throughout the supporter ranks since January. Looking at a Premier League title and a Champions League trophy hanging in the balance of the next two months, understandably so. What's needed instead, however, is an emotion that seems to be lacking in most corners of the internet at the moment. Calm. This isn’t an article about heavy statistics like expected goals or Premier League schedule analysis. Instead, a plea: let’s breathe …

Sadio Mane: The Main Man To Liverpool's Quest For Glory

Sadio Mane: The Main Man To Liverpool's Quest For Glory

Liverpool’s front-three was given praises upon praises last season for their pioneering role in a scintillating European journey that led them to the Champions League final. Mohamed Salah set a new Premier League record for the highest number of goals by one player in a single 38-game season with 32 goals from his 36 appearances while Roberto Firmino enjoyed his best goals return to date. Such was their brilliance that Sadio Mane’s role was often overlooked. It wasn’t down to …
The Ghost of Football Optimism

The Ghost of Football Optimism

Anfield Index listeners and readers will know that I assemble some of the more negative verbiage in the Liverpool universe, even in a season where the club are making a run at their first title in the Premier League era. Like most supporters, the transfer windows always leave me wanting more while the moves by the manager often confound my admittedly limited American, brain. My perspective changed though after a recent trip to England, the real England; past Ramsbottom and …
