Reject, Rewards & Rodgers

Reject, Rewards & Rodgers

Whilst I appreciate that the title may be somewhat provocative if you look through the current Liverpool team, you will see many players who, at one point or another have been classed as rejects. In fact, from the team that played Fulham in the last Barclays Premier League game then there are only 3 players I can think of who do not fall under that category. Now the point of this piece is not to moan about the quality of …

We're Gonna Win The League

We're Gonna Win The League

I have a stat for you… Liverpool, compared with the league table at the same stage in 2008/9, are actually closer to the top of the Premier League now than in that magnificent season. Cast your mind back to 08/09. It was, we thought, the time when most thought Liverpool would once again ascend to the throne in a season in which all those years of bottled hope would finally come good. Alas it wasn’t to be; indeed the club …

Anfield Index Podcast Episode 14.5: Now You're Gonna Believe Us!

Episode 14.5: Now You're Gonna Believe Us! Date: 12th February, 2014 Gags (@AnfieldIndex) and John Ritchie (@JohnRitchie84) sit down after the last gasp win against Fulham at Craven Cottage. There isn't much analysis, there aren't many stats but there's plenty of chatter about the game and some real belief from the Anfield Index Podcast? Could it be? Positivity at last on the AIPodcast?! There's discussion about Gerrard, United's downfall, Flanagan, Suarez and some hysterical singing too. All this and more... it's …
Liverpool's Magical Attack vs Arsenal

Liverpool's Magical Attack vs Arsenal

Liverpool's attack is now being recognised as a complete and destroying movement. Although they are still at the heart, it's now not just the SAS who are being praised. As Liverpool power forward, everyone from the defensive midfielders forward are involved in how the Reds are just destroying the defences they come up against. The first 20 minutes against Arsenal was described as one of the best in Premier League history. It's practically unheard of to be 4-0 up in …
Joe ‘Welsh Xavi’ Allen: The solution to LFC’s midfield problems?

Joe ‘Welsh Xavi’ Allen: The solution to LFC’s midfield problems?

2013/2014 season, for Liverpool fans, has been a roller-coaster ride with the brilliance of Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez in the goal scoring department while Liverpool’s midfield has been exposed quite a lot this season by teams ranked below us. Joe Allen, playing with Lucas Leiva and Jordan Henderson in the middle 3, dominated the opposition midfield and injected some extra dynamism into the team. This combination worked much better than the Gerrard-Lucas pairing . Games against Tottenham, Manchester City …
The Curious Case of Luis Alberto

The Curious Case of Luis Alberto

The Rules of Luis Alberto: "1st RULE: You do not play Luis Alberto. 2nd RULE: You DO NOT play Luis Alberto."   Okay, so maybe that is a bit harsh on Liverpool’s number 6, but in light of recent injuries, fans have been calling out for Brendan Rodgers to hand Luis Alberto Romero his first Premier League start for the Reds. Limited to only 9 substitute appearances so far, equating to a total of 135 minutes, Alberto has yet to …
Philippe Coutinho's Touch of Class Dominated the Derby

Philippe Coutinho's Touch of Class Dominated the Derby

There’s nothing like an intense derby match to separate the wheat from the chaff. An evening kick-off which stirred memories of those famous Anfield occasions under the lights, and a battle for bragging rights on the pitch, on the streets, in the pub, and most importantly, in the league table. The clichés rolled off the tongues of the BT Sport presenters, perched on their posh scaffolding around the ground – not for the faint hearted – and the journalists in …
