National Anthem Booed by Liverpool Supporters - Here's Why

National Anthem Booed by Liverpool Supporters - Here's Why

In the aftermath of the Community Shield, which saw Manchester City beat Liverpool on penalties after a 1-1 draw, the main talking point is not the match itself, but the events before kick-off. As the players lined up facing the royal box, in front of Prince William, it was announced that the national anthem would be played. What followed really was a sight and sound to behold. The Liverpool end erupted into boos and whistles which carried on throughout the …

Liverpool Fans - Enjoy the Ride!

We are four games into the season and have accumulated 12 points from a possible 12 points, yet the doom and gloom merchants are out in force, criticising Jurgen Klopp’s team selection, his use of substitutions, his timing of substitutions etc. Liverpool had played their first three games of the season with the same starting eleven. In the third game of the season against Brighton Liverpool looked leggy during the game. It was perhaps understandable why Liverpool had started that …

My Late Father and Liverpool

My Late Father and Liverpool

Being a Liverpool fan, I’ve fallen out of love with the game more times than I can count. Between marginally losing the league in 2008/09, and again in 2013/14, to seeing some of the icons I grew up supporting and adoring leaving the club one-by-one – who could blame me, right? This time, however, it was at a whole new level. In early May, my Dad suffered a heart attack which effectively took him away from this world, my world, …
Being a Liverpool Supporter - The Anxiety is Real

Being a Liverpool Supporter - The Anxiety is Real

It's been 6 years since Liverpool last won a trophy, the League Cup under Kenny Dalglish in the 2011-12 season. And the previous trophy to that was the FA Cup in 2006. And it feels like approximately 408 years since we last won the league. So it's fair to say that Liverpool fans have been through some tough seasons in recent times. Unfortunately, this has led to some serious negativity amongst the fanbase. There is no doubt that success breeds …

Why Liverpool Fans Do In Fact Need A Reality Check

I don’t write columns very often. A combination of being too busy with work and not really being arsed make this the first thing I’ve written in a year. I normally prefer to just spew my thoughts en masse onto my Twitter account and leave you to figure out what I’m trying to say. But you’ve driven me to this. The following is YOUR fault. You know who you are. If you don’t, maybe you relate to one of these. …
Why Man United Are The Stuff Of Nightmares For A Southern Red

Why Man United Are The Stuff Of Nightmares For A Southern Red

January 24th, 1999. It’s a Sunday afternoon that still fills me with horror, and always will. I was turning 12 years of age the following day, and with Sky Sports still not a part of my household, my Dad took me to the pub to watch Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth round clash with Man United, as a pre-birthday treat. Not only did we miss Michael Owen head the Reds into a very early lead at Old Trafford (the traffic in …
Do the fans have faith in Liverpool under Klopp?

Do the fans have faith in Liverpool under Klopp?

Jürgen Klopp has recently signed a new six-year contract extension despite joining the club less than a year ago. The club’s owners described it as ‘irresponsible’ not to offer him a long-term contract. The current deal lasts until 2022 and it will certainly be interesting if Klopp serves the full length of his contract. When you consider that Klopp is the fifth Liverpool manager in six years, the idea of one manager serving six years there seems a little hard …

Liverpool Supporters - From Doubters, to Non Believers

I understand, you're scarred. A fanbase living in perpetual fear, of the failings from previous managers and previous owners. Unable to let go of all the nearly moments, of all the false dawns. You're sick of word transition, of buying potential. Tired of watching rivals attract some of the finest players in Europe; while your club conducts the longest transfer saga's in human history. All the while knowing your club will still raid Southampton for what feels like a 17th …
Never underestimate the power of the twelfth man!

Never underestimate the power of the twelfth man!

When the unlikeliest of victories happened, just over two weeks ago, Jürgen Klopp could do no wrong. He was the new saviour, the miracle worker, who coaxed every ounce of every players ability, heart and fight, to battle back against the odds and claim victory, against his beloved former club. The supporters were elated, not just at the victory, but the prospect of what we may become. Supporters united, bonds were formed and bread was broken. But just like any …
