Light the Fuse on the Liverpool Attack

Light the Fuse on the Liverpool Attack

The Liverpool attack, light the fuse. "Yo back up now and give a brother room, the fuse is lit and I'm about to go boom. Mercy mercy mercy me, but on the stage pitch I'm free" The current season has left myself and many fans feeling frustrated. A poor start left us playing catch up and even during our impressive run of results the playing form wasn't there. No fluidity, no style and no identity. We've improved immensely defensively since …
The Joyful Return of the Prodigal Son: Fernando Torres

The Joyful Return of the Prodigal Son: Fernando Torres

When the news came out that an All Star Charity game was to be played at Anfield in aid of multiple Liverpool based foundations, I was overjoyed that there would be legends of the game gracing Anfield. As the names of the footballers began trickling in, the interest grew. Amongst the many names was the one whom I had hoped would be in the invite list. The blonde striker, the one who gave many unforgettable moments for a lifetime and …
Liverpool Target Moi Gomez Shining Brightly at Villareal

Liverpool Target Moi Gomez Shining Brightly at Villareal

Villarreal's free-flowing midfield dynamo, Moi Gomez, has been an ever present in what so far has been an excellent campaign for the Yellow Submarines. Statistically, his season averages of roughly one key pass per game, one dribble pg and one shot pg don't jump out at you. His four goals and four assists do, though. And upon watching him in action, it's apparent his worth to the team is far more important than what numbers can tell you. Marcelino has …
Raheem Sterling – The Likeability Factor

Raheem Sterling – The Likeability Factor

Is it there? With a putrid tinge of Louis Walsh here, and one of the many tiresomely predictable X Factor clichés that quite frankly, as with the programme, should have been binned years ago, the question is there to be answered. Raheem Sterling’s ongoing contract situation has led to a substantial amount of criticism on his contract advisors. But, should more be directed towards the man in question. His reported wage demands have brought him under immense scrutiny and understandably …
Sharpening the Flat 3-4-3 into a Diamond | Liverpool FC

Sharpening the Flat 3-4-3 into a Diamond | Liverpool FC

“All good things must come to an end.” That’s in reference to Liverpool’s 13-game unbeaten streak in 2015 of course, which began with a loss to fierce rivals Manchester United and also ended in a similar fashion against the same opposition within the space of a little over 3 months. The feat started after Brendan Rodgers’ opted to switch to a 3-4-2-1 formation with a flat-4 in midfield, consisting of two wing-backs and two midfielders. What contributed to the success …
Pro Evolution II - Pro Brendan Rodgers

Pro Evolution II - Pro Brendan Rodgers

There wasn’t meant to be a part two, but in this earlier, speculative look at where Liverpool might go in the coming months and years, the Liverpool manager barely got a mention. Since then, Brendan Rodgers has been the name on everyone’s lips, on everyone’s blog, in every newspaper, and on all the podcasts, thanks to Liverpool’s impressive form in the league. Aside from all this talk about the manager, the reason for Liverpool’s change in fortunes has been attributed …
The Local vs Global Divide - My Frustration as a Liverpool Fan

The Local vs Global Divide - My Frustration as a Liverpool Fan

"Your opinion doesn't matter. Go and support your local team". This statement, or at least a variation of it delivering the same bone-headed message, is one that makes my blood boil. The first part of it, in all honesty, is a fair comment when taken at face value. To many people your opinion actually doesn't matter. At least, it doesn't matter any more than the next person's. And in the context of supporting your football team, the chances are that …
Liverpool v Manchester United | Premier League Preview

Liverpool v Manchester United | Premier League Preview

I’ve heard some crazy things in my time as a football fan.  Some say that Real Madrid v. Barcelona is the best match-up in the world.  From the same country, the Madrid derby has been brought into consideration in recent years.  Others will mention the Milan derby, the London derbies.  Even the Merseyside derby has been considered one of the best rivalries of all-time.  But when Manchester United come to Anfield on Sunday, the entire world will be watching.  Two …
A summer of prudence for Liverpool FC

A summer of prudence for Liverpool FC

Here on Anfield Index, Sam McGuire has written an excellent piece on how perfectly suited Kevin De Bruyne would be for Liverpool. I would like to echo those sentiments: he would an exciting and potentially fantastic acquisition. Unfortunately though, I think that De Bruyne, like Alexandre Lacazette, will not be heading to Anfield this summer. Personally, I think we’ll see a summer of prudence in the transfer market and with us needing a goalkeeper, back-up left back, right back, central …
Tactically Outclassing Louis Van Gaal

Tactically Outclassing Louis Van Gaal

It feels like we've been saying this for weeks now, but Sunday is a must win. Not only will it propel us into the top 4, it also dents the challenge of a rival. Not just any rival though; the rival. United. For the first time in a while a top 4 finish would be in our hands and we wouldn't be reliant on anybody else at this stage. Incentive enough for the Reds to turn it on at Anfield …
