More often than not this season, it's a defensive move that's been effective enough to manage those last minute free-kicks that could have changed a lot of results for us, and who would have thought it? It was only the start of this season that the rumours of Skrtel potentially moving on were becoming more evident, mostly …

Liverpool's Progress: A Case Study

Liverpool's Progress: A Case Study

Brendan Rodgers' first league campaign at the helm started very slowly with three losses and two draws in our first five games and although things did get better as the season went on, we only managed to finish seventh and were left as outside contenders for even fourth this season.

Raheem Sterling - A Wing and a Player

Brendan Rodgers once spoke of his reluctance to give a young player a lucrative contract early in their career. The thinking behind this is that the natural hunger for the game which players possess at this age, can transform into a hunger for their next pay packet or bonus, and have an adverse effect on their performances.
