Trick or Treat For Hodgson? Liverpool V West Brom | Tactical Preview

Trick or Treat For Hodgson? Liverpool V West Brom | Tactical Preview

Liverpool face West Bromwich Albion on Saturday in the early evening kick-off, and by lord its difficult not to be sarcastic with Roy Hodgson in the opposition dugout. Hodgson oversaw one of the most turbulent periods in our entire history, and the mere mention of the man’s name sends shivers down my spine. On rare occasions I’m prone to waking up in the dead of night, in a cold sweat, uttering phrases like “those people (protestors) aren’t making my job …
Three jinxes ended as Liverpool FC defeat Stoke City at the Britannia

Three jinxes ended as Liverpool FC defeat Stoke City at the Britannia

In football it is a lovely feeling when a jinx is broken. So how great a night was it for Liverpool FC supporters when three jinxes were broken in one night? It was an excellent result for Liverpool FC, especially since they didn't deserve to lose at the Britannia earlier in the season after totally dominating the game. In that game they dominated possession 72.7% to 27.3% and dominated shots by 16-2 but still lost! Some basic stats from the …
The Devil Is In The Detail | Liverpool V United | The Aftermath

The Devil Is In The Detail | Liverpool V United | The Aftermath

It was supposed to be the game to end all games. A Clash of the Titans. El Classico, English style. Instead we were left with a damp squib of a football match that only came to life after Gerrard hammered in a free-kick that was won by Charlie Adam, in supposed controversial circumstances. So what went wrong.  Why did a game that promised so much deliver so little. The devil (pardon the ManU pun) is in the detail as they …
Suarez isolated as United frustrate Reds

Suarez isolated as United frustrate Reds

The most memorable visual of Liverpool and Manchester United’s recent Anfield encounters has been of an early onslaught, a tidal wave of Red attacking the United back-four from the off, giving the visitors from the other end of the M6 no chance to settle on the ball or go about their own gameplan. The two biggest thorns in United’s side last season were Luis Suarez and Dirk Kuyt, whose tireless running and unpredictable movement made the league’s toughest defence look …

Statistical Player Profile: José Enrique

Liverpool has long had a problem with the left-back position ever since John Arne Riise left for Roma in 2008. Yes we had Fabio Aurelio and Emiliano Insua but neither succeeded in stamping their mark on the position, with injuries plaguing the one and the other just simply failing to live up to expectations …
Steven Gerrard | Effectiveness vs. MUFC

Steven Gerrard | Effectiveness vs. MUFC

It was strange to see Steven Gerrard scoring after such a long absence. Strange but excellent. He returned to the starting line-up against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon after sitting on the sidelines for seven months. Funnily enough, his last start was against United where he excelled in a deeper midfield role. This time, Gerrard was given an attacking freedom that suits him so well. For the most part of the first-half, Steven was out on the right for protect …
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 …
Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Welcome to the friendly derby. However, judging by the amount of red and yellow cards in this fixture over the years the players don’t seem to follow the maxim of ‘friendly derby’. It’s Everton against Liverpool, a game that needs no introduction. Everton go into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Man City and with a last 5 game record (LWDWL) that screams inconsistency. It’s generally thought that Everton have started the season badly yet if …
Liverpool vs Wolves - Match preview

Liverpool vs Wolves - Match preview

Liverpool are set to entertain Wolverhampton on the back of progressing to the fourth round of the Carling cup, but with two disappointing league performances at Stoke and Spurs. Mick McCarthy's Wolves side have made an impressive start to their season taking seven points from their first five games, but sit two places lower than Liverpool who also sit on seven points in eighth place. Both side’s defences will both be under scrutiny, with both teams on minus goal difference. Liverpool …

Player Profile: Steven Gerrard

Steven Gerrard has been a stalwart and inspiration for our club for a long time, and on many occasion he had to carry the club on his shoulders alone. There hasn’t been a better ambassador for this club for a very long time, maybe not since King Kenny left the first time …
