Everton v Liverpool | Merseyside Derby Special

Everton v Liverpool | Merseyside Derby Special

Derby day.  What more could we ask for at this point?  Liverpool haven’t lost in 2015, and Everton won their first game since mid-December this past weekend. True, it was Crystal Palace, but a resurgent Palace nonetheless (insert sarcastic smirk here). Last time out, both sides were in a poor run of form and drew 1-1. I’ll bet the house on a vastly different scoreline after 90 minutes on Saturday evening. What Do They Think? So, this is my first …
Gerrard: Young and Red | 700 Up for Captain Fantastic

Gerrard: Young and Red | 700 Up for Captain Fantastic

A young Steven Gerrard charged around the football pitch, aged 12, showing strength and ability beyond his years under the guidance of Tim Johnson with the Liverpool U14's academy team. Now, 16 years since his Liverpool senior debut and Gerrard boasts one of English football’s greatest careers after achieving 700 appearances for the Reds. Speaking in an interview with the Daily Post and the Liverpool Echo in 2000, Tim Johnson remembers how he admired Gerrard’s ability and admits many strengths …
Coutinho compared to Kroos and Modric

Coutinho compared to Kroos and Modric

It's not the first time Brendan has likened his player to a superstar. Remember his comments on Joe Allen being the next Xavi? Highly debatable regardless of what team you support. But, is Brendan right in saying that Coutinho could be as good as Kroos and Modric? The comments were made after the Brazilian signed a new contract which will keep him at the club until 2020. "If you look at that type of player he is, you look at …
Welcomed Distractions - Emre Can

Welcomed Distractions - Emre Can

Ha remember that summer Liverpool paid £20 million for Dejan Lovren. What a waste of money, ey? The same summer they spent close to £25 million on Adam Lallana and another £16 million on Mario Balotelli. Three big signings, none have hit the ground running. What a way to waste the Suarez money. All big distractions to the media and fans, when one deal in particular was key to the future successes of Liverpool FC. Emre Can. Imperious, marvellous, magnificent, …
Improving Liverpool's First Team With Minimum Expense: Part One

Improving Liverpool's First Team With Minimum Expense: Part One

Liverpool, and the rest of the English footballing community, have just endured one of the most boring transfer windows ever. Nothing really happened, nobody was even slightly interested in the usual tabloid talk involving player rumours and silly price tags and Liverpool signed nobody - discounting the recalling of Jordon Ibe from his loan with Derby County. Despite this lack of activity, it was obvious for most supporters that there were issues with the squad. A new goalkeeper could have …
Bolton v Liverpool | FA Cup Fourth Round Replay

Bolton v Liverpool | FA Cup Fourth Round Replay

After a good win and a fantastic Sturridge rebirth at Anfield, we travel to Macron Stadium to take on Bolton.  At stake: advancing to the fifth round and a tie at Selhurst Park.  The primary question is: does anyone in the side really care?  For the sake of Gerrard’s final year at Liverpool, I’d have to say so. Here’s The Deal About the FA Cup Our form has been much improved lately.  Coutinho and Sterling have really blossomed.  Henderson is …
Pro Evolution: Where Next For Liverpool's Tactics?

Pro Evolution: Where Next For Liverpool's Tactics?

Liverpool’s 3-0 defeat at Old Trafford in December was a perfect illustration of the team’s regression this season. It was a direct reversal of the result in the same fixture last March, when a trident of Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, and Raheem Sterling, saw Liverpool become an unstoppable attacking force. If the club could take a positive from this defeat, it would be the 3-4-3 formation they lined up in for this game and have used, largely successfully, in each …
Liverpool 2 West Ham 0 - Talking Points: Return of the Dancing Man

Liverpool 2 West Ham 0 - Talking Points: Return of the Dancing Man

The win at Anfield was as far away as you could have got from the disappointment at Upton Park in the reverse fixture in September. Liverpool dominated and took their chances, while West Ham struggled to impose their own unique brand of physicality on the game and create openings. In September, Liverpool were effectively bulldozed by a strong and decisive West Ham team on its way to putting together its best ever season. This time round the Reds stood up …
Coutinho Stepping Up As The Playmaker

Coutinho Stepping Up As The Playmaker

We've all seen the flashes of brilliance which Philippe Coutinho can bring to a side. But since he arrived, the first few couple of seasons we didn't see his full potential - this year, however, we're starting to see the glimpses of a superstar. Coming to Liverpool as a youngster, it's very rare that you see a player from overseas make an impact straight away. Even though he didn't set the world alight in his those first 13 appearances, you …
Liverpool v West Ham | Premier League Preview

Liverpool v West Ham | Premier League Preview

After an abysmal showing at Boleyn Park, the Reds face West Ham at Anfield Saturday evening. We’ve got a different story to tell this time out concerning form; back in the “wish we could forget it” month of September, Liverpool registered no Premier League wins. In fact, the only 3 points taken from that month came from the 2-1 Ludogorets win that’s scarcely memorable. The Hammers, on the other hand, were just hitting their stride that led to a Champions …
