Liverpool | It's All About Shooting | Statistical & Graphical Review

Much has been made this season about our lack of goals and our poor conversion rate. In fact, we have been consistently in the bottom three all season when it comes to conversion rates, hovering in and around the 10% mark. This week however, we’ve reached a new low and are now bottom of that table with only an 8.5% conversion rate. When you consider our rivals for the Champion’s League places, Arsenal (15%), Chelsea (13) and Newcastle (16% - …

Bolton vs Liverpool | Passing Triangles - Graphical & Stats Preview

Next up is a trip to Owen Coyle’s Bolton Wanderers where we will look to put our recent problems at Anfield behind us and try to continue our good away form. In the previous meeting at Anfield this season Liverpool came out winners with a 3-1 scoreline. Bolton go into the game sitting second from bottom in the league table and with a last 6 that reads LWDLWL. That form guide includes defeats against, Man United, Newcastle and Fulham. However …
Liverpool - Mid-Term Statistical Report

Liverpool - Mid-Term Statistical Report

With the season just over half way gone I thought I’d take a look at Liverpool’s season team stats, see how they compare to other teams at this stage in the Premiership and also take a little look at how those statistics compare to some of last year’s totals. All though this will be a Liverpool based article, from a statistical point of view it’s interesting to note how all teams are doing in the Premier League at this stage. …
Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

Do Liverpool need to buy anyone this January?

As we approach the January transfer window Liverpool will be looking to bring in a few new faces to the club and whether those players are stars or up and comers we will find out. As you look at the team closely you are able to find those areas in which we are in need and I will be going through that specifically. To start with we look at our goalkeeper big Pepe,the 3 time golden glove winner, has started …
Torres vs Suarez (or why can't we have both?)

Torres vs Suarez (or why can't we have both?)

Recently there have been rumours  surrounding Fernando Torres and a potential move back to Liverpool, almost a year after he went to Chelsea for £50 million. The consensus from most Liverpool fans is that there’s no chance we will take him back. But hang on a second. Is there really a huge difference between Torres and Liverpool’s star man, Luis Suarez, this season? And would linking up with Suarez not potentially bring back the Torres we used to know and love? So far this …

Liverpool V Aston Villa | Stats & Graphical Preview

Next up is a trip to Villa Park where we lost our final league game last year 1-0. The goal scorer for Villa that day our very own winger Stewart Downing. Villa go into the game in 9th position in the table on 19 points from 15 games with a form guide and last six that reads WLDLWD. Those 2 losses coming at home to Man United and away to Spurs. If they beat us on Sunday they could move …

Liverpool V QPR | Tactical Stats & Graphical Preview

Not a great week for Liverpool Football Club. There is nothing more frustrating than an undeserved defeat. Add to that a spurious F.A. charge for failing to control your players, and an investigation into your lead striker for a provocative hand gesture, and you can quite comfortable say it hasn't been the best of weeks. I'm not going to go into the above charges, suffice to say, for both instances, there has been a number of similar incidents of such …
Charlie Adam | Gung-ho glory to midfield responsibility

Charlie Adam | Gung-ho glory to midfield responsibility

[caption id="attachment_4479" align="alignleft" width="160" caption="Charlie Adam"][/caption] The arrival of Charlie Adam at Anfield was met, in my quarters, with an expectation of failure. His reputation for being slightly more on the rotund end of the scale in a modern game of six-packed athletes ensured many were predisposed to dislike him, and his failure to make the grade at Rangers gave them ammunition. "He's too Hollywood" they cried, "He needs to have a team built around him", yet 14 games into …
Lucas Deserves More From All Of Us

Lucas Deserves More From All Of Us

A Sky Sports Man of the Match award at last.  Forget the 2010 Liverpool FC Young Player of the Year Award and the Golden Samba awarded from the Kop last season; that man of the match award from Gary Neville and co after the Manchester City match must mean that Lucas Leiva is finally a player befitting the Liverpool shirt. That’s what it seems from the media coverage, anyway. After suffering an injury against Chelsea last Tuesday, just 50 hours …
Fulham V Liverpool | Tactical & Stats Preview

Fulham V Liverpool | Tactical & Stats Preview

And what a week that was. From Chelsea to City and back again. Two fantastic performances put in by the players. Then right back down to earth with the hide-under-the-duvet moment when we found out the unfortunate news of Lucas's bad injury. After putting in a couple of bone crunching displays against City and Chelsea, Lucas was just starting to get the far reaching acclaim most of us thought he should have been getting a year ago. Sod's law they …
