Who Replaces The Irreplaceable?

Who Replaces The Irreplaceable?

All good things come to an end, it’s sad but true. There’s always that outstanding TV show you binged, that particular period of time that you loved, or even the sport you played, that eventually had to come to an end. Time catches up with everything & everyone, especially in football. When you look at Roy Hodgson and his tenure as Liverpool manager, it was a sad, depressing and underwhelming period that couldn’t end quick enough, much like reality TV …
Terry McDermott - You’ll Never Walk Alone

Terry McDermott - You’ll Never Walk Alone

Having been born in 1981, I had the privilege of watching legends and players of such quality, and that European and domestic dominance was assured. John Barnes, Ian Rush, Peter Beardsley, Alan Hansen, Ronnie Whelan & Bruce Grobellelar were just some my first generation of Liverpool players, albeit at a very young age. My best and clearest memory of Liverpool FC probably started at the back end of those players, as King Kenny neared the end of his first reign. …
Jordan Henderson - The Final Contract

Jordan Henderson - The Final Contract

Every machine requires certain parts to work efficiently, some are the more intricate components, whereas some are simply the much needed pieces that help push the machine to where it needs to be. Over the years Liverpool Football Club has had some truly magnificent midfielders that have held the captain's armband, helping to push their red machine to greatness within their own era. Graeme Souness, Ronnie Whelan & Steven Gerrard are just some of the iconic names that sit as …

Thiago - It’s a Kinda Magic

Football can be pure joy to the eye, with wonderful technicians (thanks Brendan) scattering the past and present of the game. I grew up watching the gliding destruction of John Barnes, mesmerised by his abilities. Later I would sit pitch side, enthralled by the elegance of Steve McManaman as chalk dusted his boots, and I now shuffle forward in my seat every time a certain Spaniard receives the ball. When rock and roll football announced its arrival at Anfield, it …
Mo Salah - The World's Greatest in Waiting

Mo Salah - The World's Greatest in Waiting

At 29 years of age, Mohamed Salah stands as one of the five or six best forwards in world football. His goal return since becoming a red is simply phenomenal. 126 goals in 204 games is world class, and with much still to come, we could be about to see him evolve into the worlds best player. Certain generations have certain superstar footballers that dominate the stage, and these are usually attacking players. Rightly or wrongly, these types of player …
Diogo Jota: Is he ready to replace Roberto Firmino?

Diogo Jota: Is he ready to replace Roberto Firmino?

Diogo Jota has a bit of a knack for not particularly playing that well but managing to find the back of the net. It is a handy trait to have.  He did just that against Norwich City in Liverpool’s season opener, scoring the first as the Reds romped to what was a relatively straightforward 3-0 win.  The 24-year-old scored with what was an instinctive finish after Mohamed Salah’s touch fell kindly into his path. It was a finish that fans …

The importance of Virgil Van Dijk

The importance of Virgil Van Dijk

Earlier on in pre-season, Liverpool journalists claimed Ibrahima Konate was likely going to start the season alongside Joel Matip in defence. It was something of a surprise to see Virgil van Dijk named alongside the former Schalke man in the starting XI against Norwich City on Saturday. He'd come through the friendlies unscathed but it felt like a start in the Premier League was a bit too soon. Maybe Jurgen Klopp felt the Canaries were an ideal team to ease …

Have Liverpool Learned Their Lesson in the Transfer Market?

Have Liverpool Learned Their Lesson in the Transfer Market?

For 30 years Liverpool tried their best to reclaim the top spot as England's number one club. Fans would be left heartbroken as some silly purchases aimed at strengthening the squad only failed. There were a few title challenges but they always faded away. The club could only watch on in envy as their bitter rivals Manchester United went on to dominate the league, closing in on and eventually passing their record of most titles won. It seemed as if …
