The Future of Flanagan

The Future of Flanagan

For no other club has the term surprise popped up more recently. We were surprised when we signed a Chelsea player who struggled to get off the bench and he began scoring for fun. Surprised that we were within touching distance of winning the league title after finishing seventh the season before. Another surprise was the form of Jon Flanagan. As always seems to be the case, there was widespread discontent when Flanagan was named in the starting line up …

Ryan Bertrand - A Guide to Liverpool’s Rumoured Target

Liverpool, Transfers and the Goalpost

Imagine the scene. It’s the first day of pre-season. There’s damp in the air at Melwood but Brendan and the staff are in good spirits. Brendan was late for once, he had spent a good hour in front of the mirror looking at his new red training top. ‘Tight fitting’ he murmured. ‘Nice!’ Still admiring himself, he was interrupted by a knock at the door. The new secretary entered the room. ‘Hello Mr Rodgers, they’re ready for you’. She looked …

Luis Suarez - Remember Him This Way

From his 79th minute substitute introduction against Stoke on Feb 2nd 2011, until he disappeared down the Anfield tunnel after the players' end of season  lap of honour less than two months ago, Luis Suarez was central to the renaissance of Liverpool Football Club. His scruffy debut goal was greeted with joy from those at Anfield that cold winter evening, but few present could have guessed at the highs and lows which lay ahead. Suarez’s arrival at L4 was somewhat overshadowed by …

The Good, the Bad and the Future | Liverpool FC

It's been a while since I felt particularly moved to write a piece on the re-emergence from near extinction of LFC. So many others were doing it, some good, some bad some obvious or indifferent that yet another to add to the heap seemed pointless, even gratuitous - we had also just lost Kenny Dalglish as manager, and with my genuine and deeply felt reservations about the new man, Brendan Rodgers, I felt it was better to hang fire - …

Suarez Bites But Can Liverpool Fight? Legal Analysis of LFC’s Options

Suarez Bites But Can Liverpool Fight? Legal Analysis of LFC’s Options

Introduction Let’s make one thing clear - I am not defending Luis Suarez. He inexplicably decided to sink his teeth into an opponent for the third time and deserves to be banned. However, we must ask ourselves is the severity of the ban warranted and why is it that Liverpool Football Club is the party that suffers the most? In this article I will analyse the Disciplinary Committee’s decision and explore possible remedies available to Liverpool. What is his punishment? Suarez …
