A Football Team Is Like A Piano... But Liverpool Have No One to Play It

A Football Team Is Like A Piano... But Liverpool Have No One to Play It

“A football team is like a piano. You need eight men to carry it and three who can play the damn thing.” Bill Shankly
In the 2013/14 season Liverpool experienced, in the words of Jim Fishlock ,"a perfect storm”. It was a season in which the Reds and their manager catered brilliantly to a world class player, finding an ideal system for the football genius of Suarez, whilst also producing a supporting cast which could occasionally overshadow the Uruguayan. The …
Christian Benteke - Gruel of the Premier League

Christian Benteke - Gruel of the Premier League

We're a few days into May and silly season is going into overdrive. A new name is linked to the club everyday and a new topic of conversation for people. For some fans this is a welcomed distraction from a season which began with great expectations following on from our title charge but you'd be hard pressed to find any Liverpool fan asking for more of this season right now. That's what the current manager of Liverpool is supposedly doing …

"Par"-don me Mr Rodgers

Par, such a simple and non-offensive word. Just 3 little letters, it's hard to get upset by a word like Par isn't it? Well thats what you would have thought this time last week.  However, since a certain Mr Rodgers uttered that non-offensive little word in a press conference, I've seen it written more times than a pro-golfer would write it on their scorecards. Perhaps Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers would have been better to use a phrase such as "we …
Take Over The Ship Captain Hendo

Take Over The Ship Captain Hendo

Three games leave us from saying goodbye to arguably the best player Anfield has ever seen, Steven Gerrard, our captain for over 12 years. He’s a Liverpool legend I’ll remember as the attacking midfielder who won us trophies and offered us fans, dozens of memorable moments. Plus, he’s the producer of the best 6 minutes football has ever seen. I know a lot people who became Reds after that miraculous night in Istanbul. As a kid, before anyone knew about …
Steven Gerrard's Time at Liverpool | The End Is Nigh

Steven Gerrard's Time at Liverpool | The End Is Nigh

In just a few games time, we will say goodbye to one the greatest players ever to have graced the Premier League. Bar a Premier League title, he won all other major honours on his journey with his beloved club, winning the love and respect of football fans all over the world. Not just because he won those trophies but the manner in which they were won. His excellent leadership, determination and, on occasion, sheer audacity meant that he was …
Liverpool U21s 2 Leicester 1 - Cameron Brannagan Strike Takes Liverpool Top

Liverpool U21s 2 Leicester 1 - Cameron Brannagan Strike Takes Liverpool Top

Michael Beale's Liverpool u21 side had the chance to go top of the league today, but in order to do so they had to beat Leicester City in Chester. The last outing for the under-21s saw an impressive performance from 18-year-old attacking midfielder Ryan Kent, who ran the show and scored two goals in the mini-derby against Everton at Goodison Park. Back to the present, Danny Ward was the man between the posts for Liverpool, with Neil Mellor and Connor …
Liverpool's Youth and the Relevant

Liverpool's Youth and the Relevant

Morale is at an all-time low for the fans, the determination of our first team players is depleting after every poor result, and our manager seems to have run out of ideas. It seems like Liverpool has reached a dangerous place, we have lost the Champions League spot and we have nothing else to look forward to. This is the time where the hungry, passionate, and youthful players should come out and be allowed to show what they've got and …
Pay for Memphis Depay | An Analytical Look

Pay for Memphis Depay | An Analytical Look

In recent days and weeks, Liverpool have been linked with the purchase of Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven. There have been news pieces on how Liverpool have been monitoring Depay for almost a year and have reinforced their monitoring in recent weeks, the key being 'Monitoring'. So what could Depay bring to Liverpool and what are his key strengths and weaknesses? Background Memphis Depay joined PSV Eindhoven in 2006 from Sparta Rotterdam at the age of 12 and was part …
Unfinished Business – Fact! Should Rafa Return to Liverpool?

Unfinished Business – Fact! Should Rafa Return to Liverpool?

I have always held FSG in high regard after their purchase of Liverpool Football Club. The manner in which they despatched their American compatriots, Messers Hicks & Gillett, was stunningly meticulous in it’s execution. Callous, cold and quite frankly ballsy to say the least. They came, saw what they wanted, and grabbed it from right under the noses of the cowboys who had us on the verge of bankruptcy. Initially I was worried with more Americans arriving, and the potential …
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 …
