Liverpool V QPR | Tactical Stats & Graphical Preview

Liverpool V QPR | Tactical Stats & Graphical Preview

Not a great week for Liverpool Football Club. There is nothing more frustrating than an undeserved defeat. Add to that a spurious F.A. charge for failing to control your players, and an investigation into your lead striker for a provocative hand gesture, and you can quite comfortable say it hasn't been the best of weeks. I'm not going to go into the above charges, suffice to say, for both instances, there has been a number of similar incidents of such …

Fulham V Liverpool | Tactical & Stats Preview

And what a week that was. From Chelsea to City and back again. Two fantastic performances put in by the players. Then right back down to earth with the hide-under-the-duvet moment when we found out the unfortunate news of Lucas's bad injury. After putting in a couple of bone crunching displays against City and Chelsea, Lucas was just starting to get the far reaching acclaim most of us thought he should have been getting a year ago. Sod's law they …

Liverpool V Swansea | Football Is A Simple Game? A Tactical Preview

The great man Shankly once said "football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple". Was there a truer word ever said? This week is Liverpool V Swansea City, two sides who really like to get the ball down and pass and move. In Kenny Dalglish and Brendan Rogers we have two managers who try to instill a certain …

Suarez & Downing | Statistically compared to rivals | Liverpool FC

A lot has been said about the misgivings of Liverpool FC in-front of goal so far this season. A lot of people are laying blame on lack of creativity (Downing & co) and also cursing the inadequacies in-front of goal (Suarez's misses). This article will look at both of these players in comparison with their rivals as well as looking at Liverpool FC's stats and how they compare with the teams they are rivalling or wish to be rivalling in …
A Tale Of Two Cities | Liverpool V Manchester

A Tale Of Two Cities | Liverpool V Manchester

To borrow a well known opening to a classic book; “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair”. One year on there cannot be a bigger contrast in …
Reds Need To Be More Clinical

Reds Need To Be More Clinical

After a defeat or a draw managers try to focus on general team performance and how well their side have played but it is positive results that they most covet, with the difference between a draw and a win often coming down to the smallest details. Obviously there are a number of things that go towards creating a winning team and while many say that you should build a team from the back, it is often the strikers that decide …
Dirk Kuyt | The man for the big occasion

Dirk Kuyt | The man for the big occasion

After spending big in consecutive transfer windows, Liverpool finally have strength in depth in attacking positions.  With this though, comes selection problems and, so far this season, the man to miss out has been Dirk Kuyt. Formerly one of the first names on the team sheet, Kuyt has only started half of Liverpool’s games so far this season, as Jordan Henderson has been preferred on the right side of midfield and Luis Suarez has mostly played as either a lone striker or alongside Andy Carroll.  …
Is Carroll starting to fit in?

Is Carroll starting to fit in?

Fluidity. That’s the word on every Liverpool fan’s lips and how we soon hope to be able to describe our attacking play on a regular basis. Pass and move is part of Liverpool’s footballing heritage and it is just as important to supporters that we start playing the ‘Liverpool way’ as it is we start giving the trophy room manager a selection headache again, and with Kenny Dalglish at the helm anything is possible. In recent seasons fans have had …
Where the game was won | Liverpool FC Vs Arsenal

Where the game was won | Liverpool FC Vs Arsenal

For the first time in eleven years Liverpool FC recorded a victory away at Arsenal, whether that be at the Emirates or Highbury. It was the first time ever that Liverpool had won at the Emirates so it was a very sweet moment regardless of quality of side that they were pitted against. It was widely recognised that this was Liverpool FC's best chance at gaining this victory and this was proved correct with Arsenal looking a shadow of the …

Season Opener Statistics | Liverpool FC

There was so much optimism, so much positivity preceding the  2011/2012 season opener at Anfield. Everyone was expecting a good performance and because it was an opening game at Anfield, everyone expected a win. Well we didn't get it, although it wasn't all bad, there was some superb pass and move football in the first half which made the second half even worse. In the end if felt like the ice cream that you'd dropped on a hot summers day after the …
