Rodgers' Eleven: The Premier League Heist

We're Gonna Win The League

We're Gonna Win The League

I have a stat for you… Liverpool, compared with the league table at the same stage in 2008/9, are actually closer to the top of the Premier League now than in that magnificent season. Cast your mind back to 08/09. It was, we thought, the time when most thought Liverpool would once again ascend to the throne in a season in which all those years of bottled hope would finally come good. Alas it wasn’t to be; indeed the club …

Philippe Coutinho's Touch of Class Dominated the Derby

There’s nothing like an intense derby match to separate the wheat from the chaff. An evening kick-off which stirred memories of those famous Anfield occasions under the lights, and a battle for bragging rights on the pitch, on the streets, in the pub, and most importantly, in the league table. The clichés rolled off the tongues of the BT Sport presenters, perched on their posh scaffolding around the ground – not for the faint hearted – and the journalists in …

Liverpool FC: The evidence of mental fortitude

Liverpool FC: The evidence of mental fortitude

It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll, I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
- Invictus by William Ernest Henley The difference that sets apart individual champions in the sporting arena from their competitors is, almost certainly, the mental strength to win against all odds. Its the mental fortitude that they each innately have to will a victory through. For teams though, building and maintaining this state …
Steven Gerrard: Brendan Rodgers’ Biggest Challenge

Steven Gerrard: Brendan Rodgers’ Biggest Challenge

To many Liverpool fans, particularly of a younger age, Steven Gerrard and Liverpool are synonymous with one another. In fact, they are inseparable. They did not grow up with title winning teams of the 60s, 70s and 80s. There was no Kenny Dalglish, no John Barnes, no Ian Rush, only stories and the occasional YouTube clip of the brilliance these players possessed. Steven Gerrard is an icon to millions, and has given so many Liverpool fans of every age, moments …
Rodgers Must Improve Team Selection, Learn Selective Faith

Rodgers Must Improve Team Selection, Learn Selective Faith

With a 2013 bolstered by tangible progress, Brendan Rodgers earned the trust of the mainstream Liverpool faithful.

In the doghouse after a catastrophic 2012-13 season, Martin Skrtel appeared destined to leave the club, with Napoli his most public suitor. However, Rodgers displayed unwavering belief in the …

Is Simon Mignolet Good Enough? Compared to Cech, De Gea, Howard & Szczesny

Is Simon Mignolet Good Enough? Compared to Cech, De Gea, Howard & Szczesny

It was the season to be jolly, until Boxing Day, when Alvaro Negredo's awkward strike was helped into the back of the net by Simon Mignolet's hand and gifted Manchester City three points, prompting mass hysteria on Twitter - as always seems to be the case these days. "He isn't good enough!" and "Bring back Reina!" clogged up the cyberspace for a while as we saw an age old problem for goalkeepers come true, make one mistake and all of …
